Comments: So far so good. I got this for the wife since I broke the last two treadmills we had. Both were cheaper treadmills. I'm giving it 4 stars because shipping was not done very well and assembly of one part didn't work as directed. Shipping took 3 weeks and one day. When I bought it the site said I should have it in 2 weeks. I opted for the threshold shipping. One man showed up with the 230lb/7ft long box, and it was on a pallet. Unfortunately I couldn't seem to find my forklift. He did have a lowering gate so we got it on his pallet jack and then pushed it up to the front door together. Since I helped him on the truck and bring it up he helped me push it in the front door. He was a nice guy, but Estes needs to rethink their home deliveries. Set up was much easier than I thought it would be. I had it together except the lift within 2 hours, mostly by myself. I needed the wife to help put on the console. The "EasyLift" on the bottom was difficult to install. It didn't fit between the two hinges. I got around it by removing the top bar from the frame, attaching the lift to both pieces, then attaching the bar to the frame while using the weight of the treadmill to lower it enough so it would fit. Overall no complaints about the quality of the product. The wife really likes it. I think the $900 price with free shipping was a good deal.
