Vision TF20 Classic Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The tiny vertical support for the handrails is odd but other than that, a good looking design
Many of the components just aren't up to what is considered standard in this price range.
The Vision TF20 is a nice looking treadmill. Unfortunately, at $2,299, it doesn't have the quality you would expect. Still, this is one of the best values you can get from Vision, as they seem to have a tendency of charging too much for their products.
The walking area is a decent size. The belt measures in at 20" x 57", which is a good 3" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is seen on many of today's treadmills. This should still provide enough room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
An okay motor powers this machine, but you can find treadmills that sell for $1,000 less that have greater power producing capabilities than this one does. A maximum speed of 12 mph is attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A decent cushioning system comes with this model. Ultra Zone cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. Similar running surfaces are found on many of the models in this price range, but if you know where to look, you can find much more forgiving and durable cushioning systems for several hundred dollars less than this one.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is unimpressive. Treadmills that sell for just over $1,000 often have a longer life expectancy than this one has. The quality of parts used is also low considering how much you are asked to pay.
The warranty on the Vision TF20 Classic is good. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 5 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. It's a cause for concern when the warranty is the most price appropriate part of a treadmill.
