Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Simply put... this is not a good treadmill. It is impossible to make a good one that retails for $300.
Save your money if you want to buy this and get a better treadmill or a gym membership. You will get more value for your dollar.
The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 is a very cheap treadmill. It sells for $299. Given the cost of quality components, it's completely impossible to make a good machine that sells for this low of a price. Any money you save on this treadmill will eventually be put into maintenance and repair.
The walking area of this model is very small. The belt measures in at 16" x 50". This is 4" narrower and 10" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. This small area may make some users feel cramped.
An awful motor powers this machine. Out of all the treadmills we reviewed, only two have lower power producing capabilities, and those motors weren't much worse than this one. Speeds of up to 10 mph are attainable, but we don't recommend using this treadmill for running. The structure and drive system won't hold up long to a walking regimen, and running would only be worse.
A cushioning systems that is very disappointing comes on this model. Comfort Cell Cushioning is used to reduce the impact that walking has on your joints and back. The only less forgiving and durable running surface we've seen comes on the Cadence 60 CT, another Weslo treadmill.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is horrible. If you find a treadmill with a shorter life expectancy, it'll be news to use. The quality of parts used is also very bad. Considering the cost of quality components, that's not surprising for a treadmill that costs $300.
The warranty on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 is the worst you'll find. Parts and labor are covered for 90 days, while the motor is covered for 1 year. The lack of coverage does, however, coincide with durability this treadmill offers.
