ALDI Crane Treadmill for $499 - worth buying?
This week ALDI has a 1.5 HP treadmill on sale for $499 and it doesn't look all that bad for the price. There are a few others in this price range at eBay but I am thinking Aldi will have better warranty if something goes wrong and they have a 2 year warranty on this machine.
There's a heart rate control input plus a decent control panel but no iPod jacks which is understandable for this price range.
One thing that I would like to see is the quality of running deck and how it feels. Hope I can find a demo machine at the local Aldi.
So is it a good buy or not a good buy?
I finally ended up getting a crane treadmill after a lot of hassle and it turned out to be a great disappoint. Really poor quality (plasticy look & feel) and it literally stopped working after a week or so and then it was a nightmare getting a refund on it as they wanted us to get it fixed by the supplier first and a million other excuses.
In the end, we got this one from eBay and I reckon it's one of the best deals in terms of price and specs etc.. Highly recommended over that piece of crap from aldi.
