Bought it yesterday, struggled getting it in the house and down to the basement. Took a couple of hours to set up. Got a workout and a half, ironically didn't need any more excersize yesterday. Used it this morning though. Seems like a very well built unit.

A question for those of you that have picked up the Freemotion 730 Treadmill. Are there four wheels on the front section for moving the treadmill while folded? I had a look at the demo model in Costco yesterday and could only see two wheels which would make it rather difficult to move.

As an additional thought to above. If there are only the two wheels, then there is the possibility of adding two large Magic Sliders to the two front pads. I added four magic sliders to my Whirlpool 300 pound washing machine so I could clean underneath it and it moves very easily.

Seems like an interesting deal, but I’m keeping an eye on the elliptical machine at Costco. I never saw it come down, always at 599$ in store.

Something to keep in mind with Elliptical trainers. The foot pads either need to be fairly large or adjustable in width and position. I had an early model NordicTrack elliptical and because I am over six feet, I constantly found my feet pushing to the outside edge of the foot pads while using it. I found I had to fight to re-center my feet and it was just plain uncomfortable.

i dont have this treadmill but one very similar with wheels. these things weight 300+ pounds, trust me you wont be moving it very much. even folding these things sucks so i dont even do that. plus if you put in on carpet you should have a treadmill mat under it to reduce static build up and dust/carpet fibers from messing it up.

Anyone know if Markham East has this in stock? (I know I can call, but just asking if someone lately has seen it there)

I bought this last year. I'll say that I love it and it is well built.

It does have two wheels on the back of the frame. So you have to lift the floor up and rock the whole beast onto the rear wheels. If you're moving on a solid surface it is doable. On a carpet will be difficult and on hardwood, it would cause indentations.

This was around $500 when I purchase. I got it at $699 and then it dropped within price match time frame. It is a well built machine. Way better than anything I have seen in this price range. We've had it for almost a year now and between myself (210lbs) and wife (145lbs) we run ~ 35 miles a week and it is still running like new. No weird noises, belt is tight, floor is solid, electronics, wireless, everything.

The only dislike is the fan is loud. Otherwise great machine.

They have a few in stock...I bought mine from there....you can call the store to verify stock on floor.
If they do not have stock, PM me and I can sell you mine and save me the trip to return.
P.S. This is very heavy
