How long will the Sole F80 last?

The Sole F80 The F80 is a tough treadmill that can withstand the rigors of everyday use. It's also backed by Sole, who is known for their high-quality build materials as well as long life spans! Coming in at a whopping 278 lbs., a light jogger or runner on an average pace should expect to get several years’ service with steady maintenance - just remember your machine needs some love too so don't abuse it! And finally – always remember regular maintenance is a lifesaver.

We invite you to see our other treadmill reviews to help you narrow your search for your next fitness machine.


We have noticed that the F80 has a consistently good motor drive system and quality parts, but we are, however, concerned about its ability to compete in an improving market. The F80 is a solid, dependable treadmill that has been refined over time. The ride quality of the frame remains comfortable even on longer distances thanks to its good balance between convenient features and utility. The F80 treadmill is a bestseller at $1,599 with buyers who won't be disappointed by their purchase. It's in the middle between Sole’s entry-level F63 model and high end F85 model which makes it sensible option for those looking to get into treadmills without spending too much money on an expensive machine that might not meet all of your needs or desires.

Stacy TIMMONS- customer service Jan 14, 2021

Not good at all, I was on hold for over an hour, and no service person ever answered at all. Then called back and they said to send an email and it will take 7 days to get a reply back from them. The worst service that I have had for a quick answer to my problem. Guess I am on my own to solve the issue of my f80.

Jason- Loud when joggingFeb 15, 2021

If you are walking only on this treadmill it is amazing, however, when jogging it sounds so loud. Had this treadmill for 4 1/2 years and only walked on it until the last month when I started jogging and it so loud I can’t believe it. Not sure if the roller is shot but it’s terrible. I will not be buying another one.
