Brief Overview

The former best fold up on the planet is getting a little long in the tooth. Still has a solid design and good components but the design is quite dated compared with the competition. Sole has done a great job with the F85 over the years. The issue now is that many of its competitors are making units that are much more feature rich and have quality that is superior.

KPMI- Heavy dutyJun 30, 2019

When I bought this in 2010, most treadmills were rated for a max weight of 225-250 pounds and my significant other was over 300. This one was rated for heavier use. In the years since, it has been used almost daily for 40 minutes with no issues, except occasional lubrication. Now my brother has gone through 3 in that period of time, but they were other brands - either the motor or electronics would fail and they were supposedly used in a gym. The 'gee-whiz' stuff may be nice, but I prefer dependability. The only caution is that this sucker is heavy and you should probably go for delivery and setup.
