Comments: I bought this treadmill primarily because of its high power motor; secondarily because of its geek friendly list of features. YouTube, news, face book, a TV..... I mean c'mon the list just keeps going on and on. please note that the pros far outweigh the cons although I think it’s necessary to let big people know what they’re getting into before spending 2K on a piece of equipment that they believe will move them flawlessly. I am a rather large man ~310lbs and enjoy jogging between 5-6mph. As any large guy knows, jogging on a sub-par treadmill will drive you crazy. There's nothing quite like a stuttering treadmill belt with every foot contact. Simply maddening. In order to get around this our options are to either lose weight to reduce contact force or to get a very powerful treadmill. I thought I was doing the later when purchasing this 4.25hp beast. I am disappointed as this treadmill does slightly stutter. It's certainly not extreme but it is annoying as fatigue sets in.... Overall it’s a great buy and if you're less than 300lbs probably not an issue at all. Be forewarned- if you're a heavy dude expect stuttering when getting up on speed.
