The Ironman M2 treadmill is one of the best deals you will find in an $800 treadmill.
It has better specs and features than most treadmills in the price range it is in.
Although this is a good machine to own, don’t expect too much from it. No matter what experts say, it is still an entry level treadmill. And you should only consider buying it if you really are on a tight budget.
For a treadmill below $800, this unit has a huge motor. It comes with a 2.0 HP continuous duty motor that has a max speed of 10mph and a max incline of 12%. This is definitely one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful motor in its price range.
Update: This treadmill has been discontinued.
However, the 18” x 51" tread belt is smaller than most people are accustomed to. So I don’t think hardcore runners would feel comfortable running on it. But the good thing about this is that the motor won’t have a hard time moving the belt, since the motor is big and the belt is small. Thus, your treadmill should last longer.
like most Keys brands, (Ironman is owned and manufactured by Keys
Fitness) this treadmill boasts a 10 year motor warranty. This is
definitely hard to match especially by other entry level machines. Other
warranties include lifetime for frames, 1 year for parts and 90 days
Like most entry level models, this treadmill comes with cheap parts. In an effort to keep prices low, most Keys Fitness parts are imported overseas. But this move also resulted in below average quality for most of their products including those in this Ironman series.
I would recommend the Ironman M2 treadmill to those looking for an entry level model. It is hard to find a better deal than this in the $800 price mark.
