treadmill help

6 posts in this topic

I am looking to purchase a new or used treadmill. Is there anything I should look for, I don't need anything too fancy, just something that I can run on. Thanks

Buy Used, I like Pacemaster, but I am into power walking and like it's stiffer bed. Go to 2nd Wind try some. Then be patient on Craigs List you will save 50 to 75%. A lot of people buy treadmills and do not use them. Now is peak time for potential users to buy, Spring is peak time for them to sell.

You can email me at s_e_hendricks at comcast dot net and I'll chat with you about them. But yea, used is the way to go. Adjustable speed and hight is good.

My wife and I just bought a NordicTrack and have been very pleased so far. I understand what folks are saying about buying used, but most companies have a really good warranty and service program if you buy new.

The worst time to buy excercise stuff or join a gym is now. If you can wait 2 months you will be able to pick them up cheap. Most will be only used a few times. There is something about the new year that motivates people. I would be willing to bet that 2nd wind gets most of their used inventory around March or April. Go to Craig's with a little patience and an idea of what you are looking for. You will get the best deal.

You get what you pay for, just remember that. A good treadmill will have a good deck and belt that you can wax and make sure it has a nice sized motor. I worked fro Pro Source a while back and did service on them things.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
