True M30 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The entry level model for True has proven to be a strong machine. Think of a BWM 3 Series.
Finally, True has come back to the sub-$2,000 price point with an entry level model. It has some of the refinements of their higher end models at a budget price.
The True M30 delivers the quality you expect from True at a relatively affordable price. This is the only one of their treadmills that you can get for less than $2,000. Many company's entry level models pale in comparison to their higher end offerings, but this one doesn't fall short.
You'll get a decent sized walking area with this model. The belt measures in at 20" x 58", which is a good 2" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt found on most of today's treadmills. Still, this should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A nice motor comes in this machine. It's very difficult to find a treadmill selling at this price that has greater power producing capabilities, but if your willing to spend an extra $100 you can find models that have significantly better motors. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph with this machine, so even experienced runners shouldn't have trouble challenging themselves.
A decent cushioning system is found on this treadmill. You can, however, find models that sell for several hundred dollars less that use a more forgiving or durable running surface than this one does.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is impressive. There are many treadmills that sell for $1,000 more than this one that have a shorter life expectancy. The quality of parts used is also very good considering how much this machine costs.
The warranty on the True M30 is good. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 5 years, the motor is covered for 30 years, and the frame is covered for life. This kind of warranty shows that True is not afraid to stand behind this treadmill, and that is a testament to its durability.
