Proform Trailrunner 4.0 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The most expensive and the best Proform ever made. Proform has promised that "this time" their service is going to be better. We hope that's true.
If you can do better with a treadmill for $2000, buy it. From a build standpoint, this is one that will make you stand up and shout.
The Proform Trailrunner 4.0 is one of the two best treadmills by Proform, the other being the Pro 4500. Both offer similar quality, durability, cushioning, and power. They also both sell for $1,999. The Trailrunner 4.0 is the upgraded version of the Trailrunner 2.0, and it offers better parts and will most likely last a little longer.
You'll find a good size walking area on this model. The 2-ply belt measures in at 20" x 60", which is the standard size for walking belts on today's treadmills. This should be plenty of room for taller users to be able to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A really nice motor runs this machine. You can find a few models with better power producing capabilities at this price, but there aren't many of them. They also aren't better by much. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable with this treadmill, so even experienced runners should be able to challenge themselves.
An excellent cushioning system is on this model. ProTech Advanced Adjustable Cushioning is used to reduce the impact of running on your joints and back. The adjustability is a fairly unique feature that allows you to find the cushion setting that feels best to you. It's very difficult to find a running surface that is more forgiving and durable without paying exorbitant amounts of money.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this treadmill is great. It has a similar life expectancy as many of the models that cost $3,000 or more. The quality of parts is very impressive.
If noise levels are a major concern for you, you should definitely consider this model. There are very few treadmills that make less noise during operation than this one does.
The warranty on the Proform Trailrunner 4.0 is very nice. 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 you see when a manufacturer has faith in the product they produced.
