Comments: Overall, we're very happy with the product. However, some issues with receipt and setup that I think could be improved: 1. The package is 381 pounds, which is impossible to move for most people (or two). Even if you take out some of the parts, the base and tread portions are connected and very difficult to move. I recommend a better shipping method that allows these two pieces to come disconnected. We're military and move a lot--this is going to be a pain to disassemble and move every few years! 2. The nut, bolt, and one washer were missing from the unit that operates the incline. We had to wait for Nordictrack to ship these to us. Though they were sent free of charge, it delayed use of the treadmill over a week. We'd buy it again, but provide this input for future improvements!
