If you are the one looking for a used
treadmill I would recommend you to first get acquainted with the desired
details on treadmill. For instance, once you know the importance of
having an efficient motor and belt in your treadmill, you are more
likely to make a better deal with the treadmill seller.
Usually folks end up buying used treadmills just because of a
little saving. However I won't suggest you to buy a used treadmill in
case you don't have any financial constraint. Used treadmills are only
meant for those who are likely to postpone buying a new treadmill due to
Now after making your mind to buy a used
treadmill, you need to look into some important aspects like horsepower
efficiency of motor before the actual purchase.
1) Since treadmill has been in use, a trial workout to check the motor's functioning and
particularly its continuous duty horsepower becomes mandatory. Along
with it you are also needed to look into other aspects of treadmill like
belt, speed and cushioning.
2) While making a purchase you should
be sure that this used equipment would serve your exercise need. If it
doesn't serve your purpose well, there is simply no need to go for it.
You should also do an assessment of depreciation and expected
refurbishing cost in order to ascertain whether the price demanded by
the seller is reasonable or not.
3) If you are being offered a
refurbished used treadmill, it's a much better option as it would save
you from the hassle of getting treadmill refurbished before use.
4) Even while buying used treadmill you need to be conscious of brand. A used
treadmill of a superior brand is likely to last long. These superior
brands often come with extended warranty of five to ten years. If a used
treadmill comes within the warranty period, it could be perhaps the best
used treadmill for you.
5) You can make a purchase of used
treadmill from shops that sell used exercise tools. The other option is
to find a nearby gym and ask whether old treadmills are being replaced.
If a gym is offering its heavy duty treadmills on sale it is a boon for
you. You can buy these heavy duty models even if these have been used
for a couple of years. They would continue working well at your home for
a long period.
Don't buy used treadmills in hurry. Indeed, look
into all pros and cons of buying a used treadmill. A decision in haste
may make you repent later. This will only cause you unnecessary stress
barring your all purpose of working out on a treadmill!
