The walking belt for the Star Trac 4000 is a commercial quality 2 ply walking/running belt that comes pre-lubricated and ready to install right out of the box on the treadmill. We At Treadmill Doctor, supply the highest quality belt at the lowest price for the consumer. At Treadmill Doctor, it is our desire to get it right the first time. All of our walking and running belts are shipped pre-lubricated, and we ship an extra belt lubrication kit along with each belt. We recommend that all walking belts and the Star Trac 4000 belt are re-lubricated every six months to a year with our World Famous Treadmill Doctor belt lubricant. The lubricant used on Treadmill Doctor belts is a liquid or gel type synthetic silicone lubricant that we have come up with and even improved over the years. The type of running belt for the Star Trac 4000 is a 2-ply commercial grade belt like what comes on the machine from the factory. Treadmill Doctor recommends a two-ply belt to use as a replacement. The only real difference on the Treadmill Doctor replacement belt and the factory belt is we do not stamp Star Trac on the belt and it comes with a longer warranty on our belt which is one year.
The lubricant used on Treadmill Doctor belts is a liquid or gel type synthetic silicone lubricant that we have come up with and even improved over the years. Many times other treadmill manufacturers have run out of their lube and have called us to order some lube for their machines until they receive some from their supplier. There are numerous types of lube out there that may work. Some manufacturers use a straight 100% pure silicone and some use the old wax system. We have found over the years that our Treadmill Doctor lube will work the best in all applications. On all treadmill belts, we recommend they are lubricated at a minimum of once a year and changed on a regular basis. It is like having a car and never changing the oil in the engine. So we recommend lubricating under your walking belt and changing the belt on a regular basis. It can end up costing you in the future by having to purchase motors and motor control boards. If the machine is use by numerous family members and friends, there is a chance it should be re-lubricated more often or if you detect the machine bogging down or running sluggish.
Technical information is located on Treadmill Doctor's website at www.treadmilldoctor.com. To ensure when to replace the walking belt with a new one, you can do an amp draw test on the motor to see how many amps the old belt is pulling. These instructions, along with the belt replacement and lubrication instructions, are also on our website.
