Landice L7 Executive Trainer Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Some will be enamored with the fancy display screen and if you are, it is probably worth it but the drive train that is taking the beating is the same as the one on the $3500 model.
The electronics are really a thing of beauty on this machine. The lower part of the machine is the same you get on the $3500 model so unless you've just got to have the screen, save some money with the cheaper model.
The Landice L7 Executive Trainer is a very sturdy treadmill. At $5,099, you might want to think about other options. Another model that sells for $3,500 is essentially the same machine minus the upgraded display screen. You've got to really be impressed by the screen to justify paying that much more for this treadmill.
The walking area is a decent size. The belt measures in at 20" x 58", which is a solid 2" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. This should still provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably.
A nice motor powers this machine, but at this high of a price, it's not exactly impressive. There are a few treadmills selling around $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.
An okay cushioning system is used on this model. A VFX Floating Deck System is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. It is absolutely an effective cushioning system, but you can find similarly forgiving and durable running surfaces on much cheaper treadmills.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is great. The life expectancy of this model is very impressive, but a couple hundred extra dollars can get you a Lifefitness that is significantly more durable than this treadmill. The quality of parts used is also very good.
The warranty on the Landice L7 Executive Trainer is fantastic. Labor is covered for 1 year and all part are covered for life. Landice obviously has no issues standing behind this treadmill, and coverage this good is a testament to the quality and durability of this machine.
