I got the prorider Paul and i have to say i am very happy with it. I use it daily for an hour a day. I'm not a runner, i only use the machine as an aid to losing weight (i'm a heavy guy 17st 7lb from 19st 9lb since using the machine and i'm only 5'7" tall.
It runs well and is very sturdy build wise in comparison to other home treadmills. It was easy to assemble right out of the box. It is very heavy so make sure you have a mate on hand to help you manouver it into position in whatever room you place it in. On the down side I find the fan next to useless and the speakers for the mp3 player hook up arent the greatest if you like your music blasting while you run.......i invested in a set of bluetooth headphones that enable me to have the sounds blasting out as i train.. All in all if you are looking for a robust treadmill i doubt you will find any better than the pro rider in the price range. I am really glad i bought mine.......i did have a roger black treadmill before this which was a complete nightmare....stay well clear of those. Hope this helps you. -Kenny
Thanks for the feedback Daeve, really appreciate it. I got a text message last night saying to expect delivery today...So I am really pleased that you find the treadmill was worth the money. I bought a Roger Black Gold treadmill from Argos eight weeks ago and it broke on the 6th week.....just stopped dead...luckily I was only doing 6.5 with no incline at the time. I had a bit of a problem getting a full refund but eventually they agreed, so I put the odds toward this Pro Rider Mobility one.....hopefully I will have better luck with that. Thanks again for the heads up. -Das
I've just been looking at the Pro Rider Mobility one, looks good spec (marketed as a commercial one) and decent for the price direct from the manufacturer. I'm aiming to try it out in the showroom (luckily 6 or 7 miles away only from where I live) next week.
Daeve did you ever get around to testing this treadmill?.....I have one ordered and am curious to know what it's like. Cheers.
