Landice L8 Pro Trainer Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
This is a borderline proposition at $4500. I would be asking the dealer for a big discount personally. It is basically the L7 model with the extended running length and width. People nowadays have a "new frugality." That means don't be stupid with your money... get a discount on this machine.
If you need the extra room, the $800 could be worth it. This is really for those who have a huge stride length or want the extra width.
The Landice L8 Pro Trainer isn't a bad deal at $4,499, but it's not a great one, either. You can get the L7 version for $800 less. Other than its smaller size, there's no difference. Unless your a serious runner who plans on using this machine at its full speed, or you are extremely tall, meaning NBA forward tall, do yourself a favor and save the money by getting the cheaper version.
The walking area of this model is very large. The belt measures in at 22" x 63", which is 2" wider and 3" longer than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. The extra room comes in handy if you plan to use this treadmill at its maximum speed.
A nice motor powers this machine. At this price, however, it's nothing special. You can find a few treadmills selling for about $2,000 that have comparable power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A good cushioning system comes on this model. The Standard VFXPlus Shock Absorption Deck is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You're not going to be able to find a more effective cushioning system without paying more, but several of the less expensive treadmills have equally forgiving and durable running surfaces.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is great. You'll have to pay more to get a treadmill with a longer life expectancy. If you have around $500 more to spend, you can get yourself a commercial model that will be much more durable. The quality of parts is also good.
The warranty on the Landice L8 Pro Trainer is impressive. Labor is covered for 1 year and all parts are covered for life. Not many treadmills have warranties that can top this one.
