The treadmill featured in this week’s “Video Friday” is the Horizon T202! The Horizon T202 is currently being sold at the low price of $799.99. This treadmill is great for first time buyers, or anyone who will not put heavy usage on it. The treadmills is a great, and Horizon has a great reputation in the treadmill industry; However, you should know that this treadmills is a base-line model that would not be sufficient enough for runner’s who plan on running miles every day.
With that said, the Horizon T202 is not the weakest treadmill out there and Horizon feels confident enough to sell the treadmill with an excellent warranty to back it up. Like I said before, this treadmill is mostly for first time buyers who just want to get the feel of a treadmill. If you care about all the bells and whistles that some treadmills have to offer, then this one may not be for you. At the same time, if you want a treadmill that will accommodate walking, jogging, and light running, this machine will do it for you. If the motor happens to wear down or the frame becomes too weak, you can feel at peace knowing these parts are guaranteed for life by Horizon.
Here are just a few of the specifications of this treadmill:
Motor: 2.5 CHP
Running Surface: 20″ x 55″
Speed: 0-12 MPH
Weight Capacity: 325 lbs
Warranty: Lifetime: Frame and motor / 1 year: Parts / 1 year: Labor.
Current Price: $799.99
You can read some of the customer reviews on online websites. One positive user remark said, “Easy to assemble and use. Arrived with minor damage from shipping but a quick call to the customer service center resulted in the damaged part being sent immediately. Great design, good power, and neat innovative features to track goals and listen to music through built-in speakers; can also keep cool through built-in fan.”
Another user complained that, “I wish I could review the treadmill, but unfortunately the delivery driver dropped the box in my driveway. This caused the belt to tear, the side track to break and the console to crack right in the middle. The good news, Horizon sent out the parts, no questions asked. Now we are awaiting the technician to come out to repair!”
It seems the biggest concern–after reading the customer reviews–was that the delivery seemed to always result in broken parts, but despite that fault, Horizon was really great with their customer service and always fixed the broken parts. However, this is something to think about before purchasing this model. Check back to my News Page next Friday to see my Video Review of the ProForm Power 995 Treadmill!
