Large frame motor but has some shortcomings in other areas. So although you could run with this motor, the rest of the machine won't keep up.
One of the better new designs from Proform but like all $799 machines, you can't have it all! It does have a large motor for the class of machine but it has a what we call a TV belt?the walking belt is so thin you can watch the TV through it. Although people put a bunch of stock into the quality of the belt, that is actually one of the least critical parts in the whole drive system. As long as the belt is low friction, I would much rather see an extra $20 spent on the electronics or rollers.
