Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer Treadmill Review

Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer Treadmill

Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer Treadmill

The Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill is another excellent premium priced treadmill from Landice.

It silently provides tremendous power for your intense workouts.

Is This Treadmill for You?

This is a treadmill designed for institutional settings where usage is less than five hours per day. Locations such as condominiums, rehabilitation centers, hotels, and corporations are perfect for the “LTD Series”.

It’s perfect for those who want a high quality treadmill that would last for more than 10 years.

But because of its heavy price tag, I would only recommend the Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill to serious runners. If you think you're just a recreational runner, a treadmill in the $1,500-$2,000 price range will do. I recommend the Sole S77, which is the best below $2,000.

Features and Benefits

The Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill offers an economical solution to limited use applications without compromising features or reliability.

The 3.0 HP continuous duty Baldor motor offers you speed from 0.5 to 11 MPH. Making sure you get the most intense of workouts everytime. It is made in the US, so you can be sure it is of good quality. It is capable of continuously delivering 3 horsepower without overheating.

The 1” thick reversable deck with the " Softer than Grass" VFX shock absorption system makes sure that you get a comfortable run. Plus, it helps prevent joint, knee and ankle injuries.

The Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill can be inclined for up to 15%. With this elevation, even the most hardcore of runners will get a tiring workout.

The safety lanyard with magnetic key switch gives you added security should you need to stop anytime during a workout. This feature is especially useful when you get dizzy during a run and need to stop the treadmill quickly.

The Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer uses the most efficient flywheel. Its high-inertia cast flywheel not only provides for a smooth feel, it also protects the motor and electronics from damaging foot-plant spikes that reduce life, thus, giving it a very long, treadmill life.

The rust free aluminum frame has a user weight capacity of up to 500 lbs. This is the strongest in the industry. Instead of steel, the Landice L8 treadmill uses aluminum for its frames. Aluminum is proven to be three times stronger than steel per unit weight.

This Landice treadmill’s 3 1/2" diameter, 22 lbs steel rollers require less tension compared to smaller rollers since they have more surface area to grab the belt.

The Landice L8 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill also offers built in programs and user programs. Plus, you’ll be guided through your workout with a unique program progress indicator.

Finally, this Landice treadmill comes with a 5 year commercial warranty. 5 year parts / 1 year labor (Warranty is valid for commercial settings where usage is less than 5 hours per day)

Weakness?

The price is a little high. If you find this treadmill to be too expensive, you might want to take a look at the Landice L7 LTD Pro Sports Trainer treadmill. It is similar to the L8 model but around $1,000 cheaper.

The difference between the two is that the L8 has bigger and much heavier rollers. It also has a 100 lbs more user weight capacity and a longer running deck.
