I wanted a wide, well-built, low cost treadmill without all the bells and whistles that usually turn out to be wasted money. The Exerpeutic TF1000 Walk to Fitness Electric Treadmill more than fits the bill.. I was able to assist the delivery driver, who had a hand truck, with moving the package inside. Track the package online and if you cannot have help available for delivery, make sure the local delivery service is aware beforehand that they will need 2 people and a hand truck to unload. Well packaged, mostly assembled and very easy to unpack and setup. Be careful attaching computer board to frame. Although wires are now preattached, not using care when stuffing wires behind circuit board could no doubt cause problems later. Wheels work for moving unit but could be a little larger for use on carpeting and 6.5' power cord could be longer. Height of safety handles fit me OK (I am 5'10") but I can see where taller people have complained about it. I often just set the back of my fists on top of the handles or use my fingertips when walking. Pulse monitor is convenient on handles but you must grab both handles correctly and give it a while to get up to actual rate. Centering belt adjustments are sensitive and, unlike instructions, no more than about 1/16 turn with wrench, then actually using treadmill for some time, is key when adjusting. Minor beefs aside, I found this treadmill built for heavy duty use and without useless internet links or cheap speakers. Computer, while basic, includes important features like timer countdown shutoff and target pulse rate alarm. It is very quiet, especially good when watching TV or listening to music. It is wide enough that I can use it with my dog. Safety handles are padded, plenty long with nice, wood end plugs. The handle mounted controls are very convenient and useful. Altogether the Exerpeutic TF1000 Walk to Fitness Electric Treadmill is exactly what I was looking for and a very good value for the money.
