BH T8 Pro Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The overpriced theme continues with the T8 Pro. Good treadmill if you can get a discount.
These are mainly sold through dealers so demand the good service if you pay up for one of these.
The BH T8 Pro is a good treadmill that doesn't quite live up to it's price tag. At $3,299, you'll need a decent discount to make this machine worth considering. The quality is good, but there are several options that are much better once you get past the $3,000 mark. Freemotion and Landice both have nice options in this price range.
The walking area is quite large. The belt measures in at 22" x 60", which is 2" wider than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. Users with a wider stance may find this walking area to be more accommodating than most.
A good motor powers this machine, but you can find several treadmills selling well below $2,000 that have similar power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A decent cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Suspension is used along with an Ortho Cushion belt to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. There are a few models that cost $1,500 less than this one that have more forgiving and durable running surfaces.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is disappointing. You can spend $999 and get a treadmill that has a comparable life expectancy. The quality of parts is also much lower than you should be getting for a $3,299 model.
The warranty on the BH T8 Pro is good. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 10, and the motor and frame are covered for life. This is an impressive warranty, but it's easy to see how BH could afford this type of coverage when you look at how overpriced their treadmills are.
