Quality

Landice treadmills are constructed using a one-inch-thick deck and a 4-ply tread belt system to improve the durability and life of the deck. In comparison, virtually all other treadmill manufacturers use a 3/4-inch deck and only a 2-ply belt system. With an aluminum frame that is stronger and sturdier than comparable steel frames, Landice treadmills can support users up to 500 pounds in weight while still functioning at peak performance levels.

Institutional-grade steel rollers ensure a long track life in conjunction with the 4 HP continuous duty motor. In addition, all steel rollers are commercial-grade and designed to last for the lifetime of the treadmill.

Landice also offers owners a chance to designate a beneficiary for the treadmill.
