When customers call Treadmill Doctor regarding replacing the walking belt for their Lifestyler Expanse 800 treadmill, one of the first questions asked is, Â?Is the Treadmill Doctor belt is as good as the original equipment belt?Â The Lifestyler Expanse 800 treadmill, model number 831.29171, uses a one-ply walking belt. The one-ply belts that come on the treadmill tend to stretch and wear out quickly particularly when the belts are used regularly. When a treadmill belt wears, it causes problems with the motor and the electronics. The motor controller heats up because it has to supply more voltage to the motor to maintain the desired speed and the motor has to work harder because of the added friction of the worn belt. When a treadmill belt stretches it causes the belt to slip, which makes for a very uncomfortable feeling when you walk or run on it.
With a Treadmill Doctor replacement belt, you get the benefits of a more durable two-ply belt that will resist stretching much more than a one-ply belt. Also, Treadmill Doctor belts are pre-lubed and sent with an additional pack of lube to be used in 6 or 8 months. This provides you with a very attractive way to prolong the life of your treadmill. The best replacement belt for the Lifestyler Expanse 800 would be the Treadmill Doctor professional quality replacement belt. As a replacement belt, this belt will give much better performance and last longer than the original walking belt. In addition, it comes with a lifetime warranty against belt failure or if the seam would start to separate. My next choice would be the Treadmill Doctor Standard quality belt. It comes with a one-year warranty against failure or seam separation. My final choice would be the one-ply belt.
Treadmill Doctor belts for this model start at $99.99 plus shipping for the professional belt. The standard belt is $79.99 and the single-ply belt is $49.99 plus shipping. By putting the professional or the standard replacement belt on your treadmill when the one on it stretches or wears out, you will be able to prolong the life of your treadmill at a very reasonable cost.
The costs of Treadmill Doctor belts are more reasonable in comparison to the cost of the original equipment belt, especially when you consider the fact that you will either have to pay someone to install the belt or you will have to install it yourself. We all know that labor is not cheap and if you install it, you could spend the better part of an hour, maybe more depending on your ability, to do so. I know that if I do something like this, I will not want to do it again any sooner than I have to. That's why I would put the better quality Treadmill Doctor belt on my treadmill.
