How long will the Xterra TRX5500 last?

The Xterra TRX5500 treadmill is an encouraging addition to the performance family, weighing in at 223 lbs. of heavy steel. The weight capacity of this folding device is a hearty 350 lbs., meaning it can handle most fitness fanatics and the lifetime warranty on both the frame and motor make this a generous offering for less than $2000. There is also a 5-year warranty on the deck, 2 years on the parts, and 1 year on the labor. Light to moderate joggers should get many years of good use if proper care and high maintenance standards are kept unfailingly. It is highly unlikely you will need a lifetime warranty, but they are nice to have when things inevitably do go wrong.

Brief Overview

The TRX5500 is the newest top of the line offering in the Xterra Performance Series. This addition to the Xterra line shows them finally adding a little extra to their electronic budget which is exciting to say the least. The addition of a 10.1” interactive touchscreen that allows streaming and mirroring has upped this competitor to a serious challenger in the treadmill offerings of today. Entertainment options are deal brakers to many fitness enthusiasts!
