Article Body:
Landice has an excellent reputation for building quality treadmills.
These are not your mass merchant specials with 90 day parts and labor
warranties. In fact, <b>Landice offers a lifetime warranty</b> on their
treadmills, which says something about their durability.

Landice has been selling treadmills for a number of years. Their focus
is to build sturdy treadmills with the best components available. The
result is machines that are built to last and are capable of taking a
beating. Of course, that comes at a price.    Their least expensive
treadmill starts at $3,100, and their commercial grade models top off at
$5,000. Let’s just say, you don’t want these treadmills to end up as
clothes racks.

<b>So what do you get for your money?</b>

As mentioned, Landice utilizes the best components available for
treadmills. For example, they equip their machines with 3.0 hp
continuous duty Baldor motors. These motors are monsters in comparison
to most treadmill motors. There are a number of companies that claim
their treadmills have 3.0 hp motors, but if you were to compare them to
the Baldor motor there would be a noticeable difference in the size.
This powerful motor assures that the treadmill will run at even the
highest speeds without straining.

Landice uses a 4-ply treadbelt, the majority of competitors use 2-ply.
Although costing significantly more, this 4-ply belt provides twice the
strength of a 2-ply belt. It also adds additional cushioning to reduce

Another quality component that Landice installs are 2.5” rollers. These
are the same rollers used in the best commercial treadmills.    The
larger the roller diameter the less tension required on the treadbelt,
since the roller has more surface area to grab the belt. Decreased
tension means decreased friction and longer life on belts, motor,
bearings and the rollers themselves.
As you can see these treadmills are built to institutional standards, in
fact Landice has over 20,000 treadmills placed in health clubs around the
world. And unlike every other fitness manufacturer that builds
treadmills, Landice only produces treadmills. They are not also
building, elliptical trainers, strength machines and stationary bicycles.
Their focus is solely treadmills.
