Vision Fitness T10
The 2.5 CHP motor moves the belt at up to 10 mph. However, the T10 Treadmill has a short 54” track. I’s not meant for long running strides unless you tilt the deck; working out on an incline will shorten your step. (Vision’s T40 with 60” track is better designed for runners, but it costs twice as much.)
Unlike most Vision Fitness treadmills, this unit can be paired with just one console, and a basic one at that. It has an extra-large LED that displays elevation, speed, time, distance, calories, pace and heart rate. A water bottle holder and reading rack are included.
What We Like:
- Track cushioning: Vision is known for its high-end treadmill cushioning. The T10 has eight zones of variable cushioning to support your body differently at points of take-off and landing.
- No maintenance: Virtually no maintenance is required! The treadmill track is waxed to last for the duration of ownership. With cheaper treadmills, you’re expected to wax the track every so often.
- Motor: Vision’s 2.5 CHP motor is comparable to a 2.75 or 3.0 HP motor from other brands. It operates quietly and has a lifetime guarantee.
- Incline: Speed up calorie burn and recruit different muscles by using the motorized ramp. The track inclines up to 12%.
- Accessories: The reading rack and water bottle holder seem essential, but they’re not included on every home treadmill.
- High capacity: This unit is stable for people weighing up to 325 pounds.
- Price: The T10 is priced competitively. Considering its long warranty, customers get a good deal if they don’t mind the lack of programming.
- Generous warranty: The T10 treadmill is sold with a lifetime warranty on the frame, motor and cushioning. There’s a five-year warranty on other parts, which is more generous than what you’ll find with most competitors at this price point. Service is provided for free during the first two years of ownership. Just one year of labor is more typical for equipment in this price category.
What We Don’t Like:
- Heart rate monitoring: This unit comes with a contact grip system only. Wireless systems are more reliable.
- No programs: This treadmill has zero preset programs! You can adjust the speed and incline with console buttons.
The Vision Fitness T10 treadmill is popular, but who’s buying it? Consider buying this treadmill for walking if long-term reliability matters and programming doesn’t. Lots of owners just park the treadmill in front of a TV or listen to an iPod as they work out. You’ll get good value for the money.
