The budget model in the E-TR lineup at only $6,000! It is a serious machine with a 500 weight capacity and a serious drive system so if you need a great treadmill, this is a good choice.
Since this model is huge and weighs nearly 600 lbs., you know they didn't cut corners on the steel put into this machine. The same holds true for the quality of the parts that Star Trac has put into this machine. Although it will make you gulp when they swipe your credit card, it will be your friend for decades.
