Lifespan TR800 DT7 Treadmill Review

treadmill Doctor Note :

Take a limited use machine and add an adjustment that helps you adjust the desk height when you can't use it because you have run out of time- makes sense to me!

There isn't much to say favoring this treadmill...

Average walking surface, average cushioning

As the treadmill is underpowered, the treadbelt measuring 18" x 52" passes muster and is just OK for most users walking slowly in front of a desk table while performing their office work.

At this price point one would expect the cushioning to be superior than it actually is, and even lower priced machines carry a more forgiving surface. Extended sessions on this treadmill can result in sore muscles and creaking joints.

Warranty is discouraging

Labor and parts are covered for 1 year, the motor is covered for 3 years, and the frame is covered for life, making this a poor warranty for users shelling out big money. Effectively, the user is buying this machine at a high price and getting saddled with higher maintenance costs and costlier part replacements. Not a great way of rewarding faithful and trusting customers.

The final diagnosis

Poor parts quality, abysmal longevity, a pathetic warranty and an overblown price tag make this treadmill truly a dinosaur in this price segment. The TR800 is best avoided and the TR1200 DT7, for $200 extra, would be the marginally better option.

Electrically adjustable desk height doesn't erase the fact that this treadmill has limited use.
