Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim Would not recommend this product
Three months after purchase the unit started making a light hammering sound. I thought it was an operating characteristic but by the eighth months of use the noise became louder. In communication with the manufacturer's representative it was quickly determined that the flywheel attached to the electirc motor is the source of the noise It appears this is a common concern with this brand. The motor has 5 years waranty but this part does not eventhough it is attached to the motor.
Our preivous treadmil lasted us 18 years, we purchased it at Sears, different brand and we never had any issues. Had to replace it because we just wore it out.
This is a poor component quality issue and should be addressed by the manufacturer to secure customer satisfaction. But they don't care. Don't buy this product it is not built to last and they have yet to realize that word of mouth is the cheapest and most effective form of advertising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ash the Runner Great Treadmill for the Price
I bought this treadmill after my old one broke beyond repair, and I am very happy with my purchase. It's smaller than my old one, which is a plus! Has 6 different programs and suits my needs perfectly. The assembly wasn't too bad, took a little over an hour to set it up. A warning when you buy: the person who delivers it will only set it by your door because they're not allowed to come inside your house. I got the delivery guy to come in my doorway about 2 feet so at least it would be inside and I could take it from there. This thing is extremely heavy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2Pauls Great walking treadmill for the price
I use this treadmill for walking anywhere from 4-7 days a week. I use the preprogrammed incline modes and straight speed/incline control. It works well. This has many features of more expensive models without the price burden. Do note, it takes time and two people to assemble. It's not difficult, it just takes good reading comprehension, patience and of course, that second person. One down-side to the purchase is that it is delivered UPS Freight when ordered online. This means an 18-wheeler and its driver show up at your door (more likely some distance from it) looking to offload a large and awkward sized box. While the driver delivering my treadmill was helpful and delivered it inside my garage, it's not required - he was being kind. Had I not had his assistance - it never would have made it off the truck.

I was looking for something that wouldnt break my budget, but would be a substantial machine. Ive found both in the ZT3 Proform treadmill.I ordered it online,and it was shipped to my home in less than a week.I am almost 57 years old, recently widowed, and am under 5'2". And with the help of a handtruck that I happen to own, I carried this huge, heavy box into the house, opened it up, and had it all put together in one evening.I guess I should mention that I am one of these gutsy chicks who buys and sells heavy furniture and loves to assemble things, but I still think someone with less experience could still handle this. I love the fact that I dont have to depend on the weather to go take a walk.This treadmill has ALOT of bang for its buck.It has many exercise programs to chose from, several speeds and incline levels, and folds up and out of the way with no trouble at all. I highly recommend this threadmill for anyone of any fitness level...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Many Moons Ago... GOOD! CHEAP PRICE! VERSATILE.
THE GOOD:I purchased this for my wife, and is versatile with numerous program options. Decent automatic incline decline, speeds, and hills and valleys. Plugs into wall socket and programs are kept in memory for those wishing to stop, then restart using the same settings. Right handy near the kitchen, den, backroom, or in front of the TV. sturdy and stable.This unit folds up and is easy to move around and re-setup; sort of like moving a 2-wheel dolly. Though a woman could move it moderately easy, help from a male wouldn't hurt. Dick's ponied right up and help me load the thing, plus gave me a few perks and in-store cash.THE BAD: PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INSTRUCTIONS, and bolts, screw sizes and lengths, along with supplied washers and so on. Plan on 3 hours setup, plus a couple of wiring challenges- namely the green wire ground, and the black wire ground. take a few breaks and don't wig out- just go with the flow and work out the bugs.Unit does not come with a surge protector, and this is not mentioned until you get into the instructions. [@] sells a Belkin 25 amp surge protector for about $7. W/O one, you could blow your plug socket or damage the treadmill motor.THE NOT SO UGLY: A good treadmill for the price ([$]). The bells and whistles on this unit rival those of units that cost 100's more. Get an extended, service to your door warranty for $99/2 years. Base is long enough that you won't have to worry about 'chin patching' (miscalculating the end of the tread, and peeling off portions of your chin in the fall). If, after 2 years, you are still using the contraption, then maybe it'd be time to upgrade to a high end model. If not still using it, what are you out? The price for this decent rig is comparable to that spent on one weeks groceries.
