Features of MaxKare Foldable Electric Treadmill
Assembly of the MaxKare Foldable Electric Treadmill is pretty easy. There is nothing much to do besides putting a plastic cover on the corner bases and similar small tasks. Every part is neatly labeled which makes it easy to put together.
All the hardware and tools are included in the package and the manual contains very clear assembly instructions. The user can do the assembly alone in around 20-25 minutes.
The energy-saving and powerful, high-torque 1.5HP motor of the MaxKare Treadmill is made of pure copper to deliver excellent durability and long-term performance. It is also high-temperature resistant so that users can use the machine for prolonged periods.
Since the MaxKare Treadmill has a foldable design, users can store it in a small corner after the workout. Thus it’s highly space-saving.
The treadmill has also got transportation wheels; so, it’s easy to move the treadmill to another room or away for storage.
The console of the MaxKare Treadmill has a large LCD display that shows real-time workout stats including time, distance, speed, calories, and heart rate. With a convenient one-touch operation, the console is very easy to use.
Heart Rate Monitoring
The handlebars of the MaxKare Treadmill have heart rate sensors integrated in them. Thus, users can hold the handlebars tightly and track their heart rate.
The treadmill offers 12 preset workout programs which help users bring diversity in their workout and avoid monotony.
The tread belt of the MaxKare Treadmill is multi-level and 43” long and 17” wide. It contains a Wear-resistance Surface on the top, then a Noise Reduction Layer, then a High Strength Reinforcement Layer, then an EVA Shock Absorption Layer, and finally a High Strength Support Layer.
This design provides users excellent joint protection. The tread belt provides a spacious surface for running to users in a wide range of heights. The multi-level design and anti-shock system of the tread belt minimizes the impact on users’ joints and delivers a pleasant workout experience.
Maximum User Weight Capacity
As such the maximum user weight capacity of the MaxKare Treadmill is 220 lbs. However, the manufacture recommends users with weight up to 186 pounds to use the machine due to the machine limit.
The MaxKare Treadmill offers a decent speed range from 0.5 to 7.5 mph. There are Quick Speed Selection keys for speeds 3 and 6.
Control Panel on Dashboard
Just below the display on the dashboard, there are buttons for Start, Stop, Quick Speed Selection for speeds 3 and 6, increase speed, reduce speed, program selection, and mode selection.
This treadmill offers 3 manual incline levels so that users can have a good range of workout intensities. After changing the incline, users can adjust the support pad and fix the pin in the front part of the machine (in the folded as well as unfolded positions). The machine is perfectly stable.
The MaxKare Treadmill comes with a safety key that users should attach to their clothes while exercising. In case of an accidental fall or any other emergency, it will cause the machine to stop and prevent injuries.
As its first add-on, the treadmill has a device holder just below the monitor where users can place their phone or tablet and keep themselves entertained while exercising.
Plus, there are two compartments/cup holders flanking the display where users can place a coffee cup, water bottle, keys, TV remote, etc.
The MaxKare Foldable Electric Treadmill needs almost no maintenance. Users just have to keep the tread belt clean so as to avoid the entry of dirt, debris, fibers, etc. into the belt. They should also protect the dashboard from any spills and regularly check for any loosened bolts and parts, and tighten them if required.
