Landice (http://www.landice.com) is a New Jersey based company launched in the 60s. For almost 50 years, they have invested their resources in building high quality treadmills and ellipticals for home and commercial use. Consumers have voted many of their machines as best buys over the years, and for the right reason.
Landice builds powerful treadmills, fun and efficient. You'll easily spot the highest quality in any model you buy. They offer their customers the chance to choose between different consoles and frames, but each component it's built after the same standards. You get less features for a smaller price, but you always receive high quality, no matter what.
For residential use, Landice offers 2 frames (L7 and L8) and 4 console versions. The frames have common features, such as: 4 Horse Power continuous duty motor, steel frame, 4-ply tread belt, the same shock absorbing system. The differences arise when you compare the supported user weight and belt length.
For commercial use, Landice offers the same components as for residential products: same motor, same cushioning, same belt type and even the same console options. The differences lie in the small details like rollers or belt length. Only the Rehabilitation series has unique characteristics, for medical purposes.
The commercial line includes the Club Series (L7 and L9), the LDT Series (L8 and L7), and the Rehabilitation Series (L7 and L8).
You buy diversity with the consoles: Executive Trainer, Cardio Trainer, Pro Sports Trainer and Pro Trainer. The console prices differ based on the functionality and entertainment features added to each of them. We invite you to read our reviews for full details.
For residential treadmills, Landice offers a lifetime warranty for frame, parts and wear items and 1 year for labor. The commercial range has a 5 year warranty only, but this is a common feature of this market.
NOTE: the warranty has specific requirements that must be met.
The Club series, the Light Commercial series and the Rehabilitation & Wellness series, all are extremely popular and very often seen in fitness clubs or recovery centers.
Landice sells the entertainment accessories separately and you can add them to any combination of frame and console. We like the Landice Vision System to play DVDs and TV channels and the Landice Walking station to use the laptop while running.
The start price is $3,000.
We are fans of the Landice brand and we strongly recommend their products. The decision depends only on the budget you have to spend.
If you need a treadmill to go jogging, you don't need a Landice, even if you have the money. A machine within $1,500 price should fit your purpose, and there are many reputable brands to choose from.
