Possessing a second hand model may be a risky game altogether since it's very difficult to find it's spare parts easily. But still if anyone wishes to possess that particular model, he should think twice before indulging in such an expensive affair. It may bring along with great expenses for repair and maintenance. Besides, the difficulty in finding the spare parts for a model no longer available can be very high on nerves. It is also said that using second hand model can cause injuries while performing workouts.

The ardent lovers of the Vitamaster model of the treadmill, while buying it, should keep in mind to buy it with warranty, which would cover the treadmill repairs, and maintenance expenses during the warranty period. The reason behind the scarcity of the availability of this model is that it stops functioning after a particular period.  The problem arises in the belt and deck of the treadmill that wear out as the usage increases with time. As a result of wearing out of these parts, the rate of friction increases, in turn, lowering the speed that it normally provides. To overcome this problem, a super board, with PWM technology, is used which also prevents noise pollution.

It is also said that working out on this model is not a cakewalk, and proves to be a real sweat out, and is not usually recommended to new users or anyone for that matter. Users are advised to opt for a second hand model along with a warranty or a treadmill still under production so that the spare parts can easily be found and fixed when the need arises. Another option is to buy a re manufactured treadmill. All this can prove to be very economical because old treadmills cost half the price of the new ones.  

Most companies dismantle the equipments of the machine, redo the frame to discard all imperfections, rebuild the whole mechanics and electrical systems with new parts. The treadmill is then put together and given a new look by repainting. Many companies do have some kind of quality control through which the treadmill goes before it is resold.

The best place to buy the rarely available treadmill is the ebay website. There is a possibility to find a treadmill here, but not at any ordinary or exclusive home appliances shop. The reason being it's a risky investment. And, to avoid losses in their business, dealers and retailers do not believe in taking risks by selling machines not much in demand.
