Landice L7 Pro Sports Trainer Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Used to be one of the best values you will find on a high quality machine. With that said, it is about as high quality as you can get in a home machine.
Our advice to Landice is: don't mess with it if it ain't broken. Too bad they didn't take our advice. Unless you can get a discount from a dealer, better values are out there from Precor, Vision, True, and Lifefitness.
The Landice L7 Pro Sports Trainer isn't the value it used to be. At $4,099, Landice made unnecessary changes. Now, you can find much better options without paying more money. The quality of this machine, however, is something to be admired. If you want a treadmill that only requires minimal maintenance, you cant go wrong with this model.
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 user to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A nice motor powers this machine. If you know where to look, however, you can find a couple of treadmills that sell for around $2,000 that provide similar power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A cushioning system that's not bad comes on this model. The Standard VFXPlus Shock Absorption System is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You can find treadmills selling for significantly less than this one that offer a comparably durable and forgiving running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is great. You're going to have to be willing to spend more money if you want a treadmill with a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts used are also very nice. These two areas are where this model really stands out.
The warranty on the the Landice L7 Pro Sports Trainer is impressive. Labor is covered for 1 year and all parts are covered for life. Out of all the treadmills we reviewed, only two come with a better warranty.
