How long will the Famistar 3.25HP last?

The Famistar 3.25HP is made of tubular steel construction and has a max capacity of 300 lbs. with an assembled weight of 142 lbs. It comes with a soft drop hydraulic system to keep damage to the floors at a minimum when unfolding for use. We cannot verify warranty coverage, even with searching the Famistar online webpage and by attempting to call their service number but if you purchase through Walmart there is a 30 day return guarantee. This speaks volumes about the durability of this machine and customer service capabilities of the parent company. This company in the past has offered a warranty less than 90 days.

Brief Overview

The Famistar 3.25HP is a folding treadmill that offers quite a few nice features in the less than $600 price range. Its capabilities place it within shouting distance of our best buy choices in this dollar amount and if there was a valid warranty offering this might just be a great choice for an in-home treadmill. Lower budgeted users benefit more with the many options available as more choices increase the chances of finding the perfect treadmill that fits all your workout needs.

Overall Quality

The Famistar 3.25HP is a treadmill that will increase your cardio endurance, help you to lose weight, and tone up through walking. This treadmill has a 3.25 HP motor so you can choose between casual walking or speed walking, depending on what level of exercise you are aiming for. With a 9 MPH max speed, it is fast enough to meet your goals and stay motivated, but not too fast that you get tired immediately. Moreover, there is a unique 4 zone anti-shock system to make the treadmill more comfortable for your joints and legs during impact while walking. The purchase of this machine will net you a gift of knee straps that assist in the support of your lower extremities while exercising. The Famistar 3.25HP offers 12 preset programs that cannot be easily seen on a 5" display. The quick speed buttons on the handlebars and console are handy and there is a built in MP3 speaker for your listening pleasure. This treadmill comes with a 0-15% automatic incline which is stellar but pair it with a rather compact running area measuring 16.5" x 47". This means taller users who take long strides or want to jog a bit are not suitable for this treadmill. This is a basic treadmill offering that suitable for those starting their fitness journeys.

If price and entertainment capabilities are not issues in purchasing a treadmill, the Famistar 3.25HP just might be the perfect fit for your household. If you are worried about longevity, verify warranty coverage before purchasing. The features offered in the Famistar 3.25 are comparable to other basic treadmill offerings but falls short in the size of the running area. It is not meant for heavy use, and we caution taller users to steer clear.
