"what is the maximum weight?"
The Schwinn 430 is a really smooth machine. I researched ellipticals for several months before purchasing this one and, as of right now, I am very satisfied. I would have liked to have more programs like the 431, but the 16 resistance levels makes the programs challenging. The articulating foot pedals help my 'numb feet' syndrome so they don't go numb as quickly as others I have tried. I just go backwards for a minute or two, and I can keep the numbness at bay. Overall, I would recommend this elliptical to many and am very satisfied, but I have only used it 10 times, so it's still pretty new. I hope after 100 workouts, I can say the exact same thing!...

We choose the Schwinn 430 Elliptical over other models dues to it's smooth operation, features and price. My wife and I had tried out quite a few ellipticals at local stores and we kept coming back to the Schwinn as the one we thought would work best for us. We ordered through Overstock (this was my first order with Overstock and they had the best price I could find for this particular model delivered) and the machine arrived in two weeks (in perfect shape). I had it put together in about an hour and a half (all parts were there and the directions were very good). The footprint of this elliptical is about average (we saw many other ellipticals a little larger and some of the cheaper ones were a little smaller in size). The stride is just right for my wife and I and we find the variety of onboard programs very good for both of our needs. The design is little different than most with the foot rests using rollers to support some of the body weight instead of just using connections to the 25lb wheel. I would think this would put less strain on some of the parts and allow this model to be a little more durable and longer lasting then some of the other ellipticals. The only thing missing features I could think of from this machine would be a backlight for the display (not a huge deal since we have it in a well lit room) and maybe a onboard fan that we saw on other ellipticals (you get quite a good workout on these machines). I would recommend this model to anyone looking to buy an elliptical (and didn't want to spend a thousand or more for some of the highend ellipticals you see out there). This model received a good/almost a very good score from Consumer Reports (it scored a 69.....60-70 is good and 70-80 is very good). It was also one of the least expensive models they tested (some models were costing as much as $3700). I'm not trying to say that this particular model is good as those other expensive ellipticals, but I think it's worth noting that could it was being compared against them and held its own in some categories and even surpassed a couple of them.Read More
Great piece of equipment for the value. Putting it together was a snap - good directions in English. I would recommend using real tools (preferably electrical) and not the stuff that comes with it. It has an acceptable and surprisingly quite operational volume. Even though the unit had been through a freight accident and displayed some box damage, the unit was packed very well with no damage to anything except Styrofoam. There were no missing parts.Read More
My husband and I found this elliptical trainer on Overstock for half the price of other ellipticals. We knew it was a good one - we did our homework on Consumer Reports. It was easy to assemble, and very sturdy. It is very quiet, and we do not see any difference between this one and the others we use at the gym. Overall we are very happy with this trainer.Read More

Consumer reports best pick in this price range indeed. Smooth and stable workout, this machine has a quality feel. We hope that this will keep up in the long run. A few negatives: 1. not very difficult to put together, but does take a good amount of time (pay particular attention when large washers are required); 2. lacks a back lit panel; 3. some cosmetic damage to the plastic fly wheel cover from shipping through Overstock (large black marks on the grey circular panel; and 4. shipping took forever and a day through Overstock. But, it was the best price. Overall, a great machine. We are satisfied.Read More
It takes a while, but once its together, it is a well made, professional quality machine. works as good as anything in the gym.Read More
My husband and I just moved to sunny AZ and with summer around the corner we decided to invest in a home gym because it's just too hot outside. After lots of research, we decided on the Schwinn 430 and saw that Overstock had the best deal by far... especially the shipping costs! The delivery company called to schedule a delivery time and when doing so I informed the scheduler that we would be leaving town at noon that day, so they said between 9am and noon. Well, noon came and went and no delivery... no call. We took the initiative and called them, and they were another 45 minutes from getting to us. This was frustrating and an inconvenience. We had to reschedule. But overall, the experience wasn't that bad considering we only paid $2.95 for the shipping. The box came somewhat damaged but the packing was so sturdy that everything was intact. The screws and bolts were also packaged well and clearly labeled. My husband and I put it together fairly quickly. The manufacturer, Nautilus, is a wonderful company to deal with if you have any need for replacement parts or information. The elliptical was squeeking a lot, a piercing sound, and so I called them. The hold wait was about ten minutes, but once you got someone on the line they were so friendly and extremely helpful. They were willing to send replacement parts on the spot and even offered to have a technician come to the house to assist in the process. I declined and took her advice to just loosen a few bolts, which did the trick. NOTE: If you need lubricant be sure to only use one of the following two products on this machine per the manufacturer: Silicone spray tube or White Lipium Grease. We bought the latter to have on hand if needed in the future. They were very stern to say not to use any other type of product. We love this machine. We both use it daily. It's durable, sleek looking, quiet and we get a GREAT work out from it! This was well worth the investment and we would recommend this product to everyone!Read More
Not easy to use for a beginner; takes more effort than a recumbent bike. If you need ease of operation and less stress, the rebumbent bike is a better bet. Also, takes a very long time to put together, several hours, and I ended up with a few hardware discrepancies at the end of it. The instruction manual for install was vague in areas so it was almost guesswork to assemble. Seems to be sturdier than the recumbent bikes I've had in the past (the gears always ends up sticking at some point.) Another problem is the QUICK START button is supposed to allow for turning on, but it doesn't work on this one, I have to do a manual switch-on by pulling out then reinserting the power connector to the bike. Of course, when you've done all this work and even taken time off work - it had to arrive by freight and I had to be home to sign for it, also to check for damage in shipping for a refusal of delivery - you don't want to dissemble or pack up or pay for its return, so you'd better be sure this is the item you want, since you're stuck with it. The SCHWINN variety was recommended to me by a fellow user as reliable and less likely to fall apart within a few months. Considering the price, it had better not.Read More
