How long will the Matrix TF30 XER last?

The Matrix T30 XER treadmill has a decent assembled weight of 289 lbs. and can hold users up to a 350 lb. max capacity. It is designed for light to moderate use and walkers to light joggers will get quite a few years of use from this machine with proper care and maintenance. It carries a rather generous lifetime warranty on the frame, motor, and cushioning with 5 years on parts, and 2 years on labor. Keep in mind, simply unplugging after each workout will extend the life expectancy of any treadmill.
