Weslo Cadence 60 CT Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Save yourself a pile of trouble because this one is really a pile of "something". Speaking of piles... this is it.
Don't waste your money on a $300 treadmill... they simply cannot put quality into the machine.
The Weslo Cadence 60 CT is a treadmill that sells for $300. To give you an idea of how hard it is to make a quality machine at this low of a price, consider the fact that many of the replacement drive motors that we sell for treadmills cost $300. To get the price this low, they aren't just cutting corners, they're skipping sides.
The walking area is very small. The belt measures in at 14" x 45". This is 6" narrower and 15" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. This makes for a very cramped exercise experience.
An awful motor powers this machine. Only two treadmills that we reviewed have lower power producing capabilities, and they aren't lower by much. Speeds of up to 10 mph are attainable, but we wouldn't recommend running on this machine. The structure and drive system are going to have a hard enough time holding up to a walking regimen.
An extremely disappointing cushioning system comes on this model. Comfort Cell Cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. There isn't a single treadmill we looked at that has a less forgiving and durable running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is horrible. The life expectancy of this of machine is excessively short. Any money you save purchasing this treadmill will be nullified and then some by the maintenance and repairs you'll have to perform. The quality of parts used is poor.
The warranty on the Weslo Cadence 60 CT is the worst you'll find. Parts and labor are covered for 1 year. We are surprised that Weslo doesn't want to stand behind this treadmill. We're more surprised they want to make it.
