Conclusions

The Smooth 7.35 2011 version is a powerful, sturdy machine. But it has a few drawbacks that you may find it hard to cope with. We recommend this machine for avid runners and joggers, but you should skim this Conclusions section in order to be fully informed.

The advantages of this machine are numerous. First off, it won’t take more than 30 minutes to assemble it and it comes with the necessary installation tools. Second off, you can always fold it when you’re not using it and store it where it doesn’t disturb you.

Third off, this machine is spacious. Even heavier users, up to 350 lbs/ 158 kg can use this treadmill comfortably. The running area is above average and it will make your workouts comfortable and consistent. The motor is the cherry on top. The 3.25 CHP will engage you in tough, effective workouts.

An important asset is that this treadmill doesn’t squeak. It is as smooth as thin ice and doesn’t disturb you with those terrible noises that large treadmills do.

The Smooth 7.35 is easy to set up and the display offers proper and rapid feedback. The handrails have the speed and incline adjustment keys that are really convenient. You don’t have to press, only touch the keys.

There are also several cons that you may find problematic. It offers feedback on the approximate number of burned calories, but you don’t have the option to input your weight so that the console can calculate more accurately. The fan is also a minus. Ours broke down at the third employment. The manual program can only adjust speed or incline, not both. It takes a lot of space, since this is a large treadmill. And also, quick input keys can’t be used for all inclines and speeds.

Overall, these flaws are only small details. This is a good machine, it holds up well and is worth purchasing.

Not to forget, this treadmill comes with a tremendous warranty. Lifetime for frame and motor, 7 years for parts & electronics and 2 years for in-home labor guarantee a machine that was built to last.

The advantages of this treadmill are worth it if you can overlook its little flaws.
