Precor 9.33 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
A very solid machine but a hefty price to go along with it. It is hard to go wrong with Precor... like buying IBM if you are buying new computer systems for your company.
Nice treadmill and nice price tag to go along with it. Heavy on quality but also heavy on price.
The Precor 9.33 is great treadmill, but it's not a great value. At $4,499, you wouldn't be wrong to expect a little more. If you are considering this model, go with the 9.31 instead. It offers similar quality for $500 less.
The walking area is a good size on this treadmill. The belt measures in at 22" x 56". This is a bit wider and shorter than your standard 20" x 60" walking belt that can be found on most of today's treadmills. The width may make some users with a wider stance feel more comfortable, and the length is plenty for larger users to run on without altering their stride.
A nice motor is powering this machine. At this price, however, it's not particularly impressive. You can find treadmills that cost less than $2,000 with similar power producing capabilities. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph with this model, so you should be able to challenge yourself, even if you run on a regular basis.
This treadmills has an excellent cushioning system. Ground Effects Impact Control System implements variable impact absorption as well as a firmer push off point to protect your joints. It's not easy to find a better cushioning system than this one.
Projected reliability is where this model really shines. There aren't many treadmills that have a longer life expectancy than this one. In fact, many that cost a couple thousand dollars more aren't expected to last as long. The quality of parts is equally impressive. Keep in mind, however, that the 9.31 is similar in these categories, and it costs $500 less.
The warranty on the Precor 9.33 is good, which you should expect when paying this much. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts and wear items are covered for 10 years, and the frame and welds are covered for life. The coverage on parts and wear items is a true testament to the quality of this treadmill.
