We bought this treadmill as an addition to the one that we have since I had worn out the motor from daily use. This one seemed reasonable and step up from the one we have (it's a Nordictrack too and got a new motor for it). This one went together fairly easily, instructions were clear and it only took hubby an hour or so. It runs GREAT, it's quiet, love the fan and the speeds and inclines. Love the pre-set workouts. Only one complaint and it's not a big deal, but the arms or handrails are a bit short. I like to steady myself during inclines and high speeds and the handrails make are a bit short to hold on to. The tread is longer then my old one, but hard to use that additional space without the handrails being longer too.
Upon Sears delivery and set up of this treadmill, the motor sounded whiney and strained. The belt seemed to drag and speed didn't seem consistent. I felt like the belt was a "tripping hazard". Between the tread- belt and motor issues this was one loud machine not worth the money. If it was such a rough ride like this out of the box what would be like in 6 months? The delivery crew said it seemed just fine and like others they had assembled ... yeh, Right! ( It was delivered late on a Friday afternoon.) We realize the Nordictrack C700 has been described as a "good" entry level machine. Maybe this one was just a "lemon" or we should have purchased a better quality product. It gets one star because the console is attractive, the back-lit screen and fan is are nice features.
Bought this from Sears during thanksgiving..Treadmill stopped working from day 1..It ran for few minutes then stopped and there was burning smell..Nordictrak’s customer service is horrible.It puts you on hold for an hr before someone speaks to you.was sent a replacement motor and was expected to assemble to a new treadmill ..drive belt did not fit and now i doubt issue is drive belt and not motor..trying to reach customer service again..its pure harassment once they sell the product to you its like they dont care much..stay away from this company..
I bought this tow weeks ago.
Everything is so so, but one function is
Using machine and stop few minutes while key is on.
Calories, distances, times are all reset itself.
I am still trying to get used to the different programming. I used to go to a gym but it is great having this in my own home.
