Large frame motor with cheaper frame and other drive system parts but if you need a basic machine, this is a good choice.
Once again, the $999 machines are getting on the cusp of being good machines. You still have to make some compromises but they aren't as fatal as they are in the lower end units. So there is an upgrade in quality of the motor, the electronics, the rollers, frame, etc. but some of these parts are still borderline but the machine looks so good that people will be fooled into thinking this is a serious treadmill and it is not. When customers come to us and wonder why it only lasted as long as it did, we have to point out the shortcomings.
