Comments: I brought the A2550 about 2 mos. ago after looking around for almost a year. I set it up in about 2 hours(suggest you get another person to help). I was by myself. It's a little heavy to get into the house and move around. It was so easy to put together, the instruction and digrams are easy to follow. At 62 yrs I'm a walker, not big on running. I have walk away 18 pounds so far. I walk about 2 to 3 miles a day at 3 to 7 percent incline. Speed of 3 to 3.7 miles per hour. Sounds like alot. Just start slow and you can speed up at 1/10 a mile per hour at a time. Of course I'm also watching what I eat, and saying away from those fast food places, and the late night snacks. This treadmill is just what you need to walk or run away those unwanted pounds. Do not be fooled by those cheaper treadmills you see other places. This baby is built well and took my 225 lbs fat body with ease. The motor is a 2.5 Hp, it's quit, and you will not slip on the treadbelt. The only draw back is the built-in handlebar sensors heart rate monitor. I found out after contacting NorficTrack that you have to stop walking to get an accurate heart rate. So, I got one of those that straps around my chest with a watch. I can now track my heart rate while still walking. I can also use it when I walk outside the summer with the dog.
