Proform Power 1080 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
If you can find it at their "sale" price of $1299, it is a deal. Better component parts and much longer warranty make it a deal compared to the Power 995.
This is one of the BEST Proforms ever made. The customer service still isn't up to the levels of other companies but it is improved.
The Proform Power 1080 is a pretty good value at $1,299. It's one of the better Proform models you can find since they began branching out of the bargain treadmill market. It is a model that supplies decent quality along with a great warranty.
The walking area is a great size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which is the standard size for walking belts on today's treadmills. It should provide plenty of room for most users to run comfortably without altering their stride.
A great motor powers this machine. To find a model with better power producing capabilities you'll most likely have to spend an extra $700. There are some treadmills with better motors at this price, but there aren't many. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph with this machine, so even serious runners should be able to challenge themselves.
At this price, the cushioning system is one of the best you can get. ProShox Elite 2 Cushioning uses four isolators to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You won't find a more forgiving surface that will last as long as this one without paying $1,000 more.
The projected reliability is encouraging. It's got a life expectancy that is near the top of its price range. To find a model that will last significantly longer, you'll have to do your homework if you don't want to pay more than $2,000. The quality of parts is impressive for a treadmill that costs $1,299.
The warranty on the Proform Power 1080 is very good. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. This is the kind of coverage that displays confidence in a particular model on behalf of the manufacturer.
