NordicTrack C 1750 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
A very good treadmill with the unfortunate service center backing the machine. With that said, it is still one of the best values for your money at $1500.
Factors favoring the treadmill...
Nearly noise free motor with sufficient juice to power a satisfying workout
The 3.5 HP motor is a superior performer considering the fact that users are normally saddled with 2.5 HP to 2.9 HP motors in the price range below $1,500. The motor-drive compatibility is good and produces a nearly noise free treadmill workout. The motor easily matches steps as you raise speeds to 12 mph. This machine can take a strenuous workout and you can stretch the limits of the motor without worrying unduly as there is a lifetime warranty covering it.
A great belt that makes running a pleasure
The 20" x 60" tread belt is fast becoming the standard belt size for treadmills geared for running. Lengthy enough to accommodate the tall runner with the athletic stride, and powered by an efficient motor. Extreme exercisers will not be disappointed.
A comfortable low-stress running experience
The QuadFlex cushioning gives you one of the softest surfaces, in this price range, which provides adequate support to stressed legs, hips and back muscles. This means you can effectively prolong a workout without compromising your joints and muscles. Anything superior to this cushioning will come at additional cost.
Good workout programs and excellent incline/decline variation
Maximum 30 preset workout programs and incline variations from -3% to 15% permit you to rise above mundane exercises and add more challenge and variety to the workout. This is better value for money besides improved muscle tone and faster calorie burn.
This is a folding treadmill
Folding is a useful feature that makes the treadmill more, but with dimensions measuring 80.6" x 36.6" x 73.4" you will need a bigger runway when this shuttle lands. Ask yourself, do you have the space to accommodate this treadmill?
Warranty is satisfying and competitive
The labor warranty is 2 years; parts and electronics enjoy 5 years; and the deck, motor, and frame have lifetime cover. It's the company reaffirming faith and confidence in its product and its ability to last.
What might cause anxiety...
Poor servicing track record
Icon's slow servicing response and delayed parts delivery is still worrying and there's room for more improvement, but you just can't ignore the sheer quality of the product and its feature packed interface, and the superb warranty that comes with the package. If users can tolerate the servicing glitches this is definitely value for money.
The final word
The NordicTrack C 1750 is essentially a carbon copy of the Commercial 1750 but doesn't sacrifice its value in the process. It is extremely reliable with better longevity than many other models in this price bracket. It is immensely satisfying seeing this kind of component quality at the $1,499 price tag.
A strong treadmill with many of the best key systems in a treadmill below $1500. The experience will be great unless you have a problem.
