F80 Problem

by Rick
(Rome, NY)

Here's the bottom line, if you are over 5'6", DO NOT BUY this treadmill. I am 5'10" and the grips and side rails are too low. The treadmill I used to use at the gym has the rest handles at 40" from the running surface, the F80 (and I presume all their models) start at 36". On the gym treadmill when you raise the incline, the handles follow so they are always at the same height from the running surface. The F80's stay where they are and do not follow the incline, thus at a 10 degree incline the handles are only 31" from the surface.

What this results in is you have to BEND OVER while using this maching if you want to rest your arms.

Terrible design for what otherwise is a great machine. So if you are of any height, DON'T BUY IT.

Unfortunately I had a health problem when it was delivered and wasn't able to try it out until after the 30 day return window had passed. I emailed them but they simply say there's nothing they can do.
