Proform 590T or Proform 850T?
~~Side-By-Side Treadmill Comparison Review~~
Motor: The Proform 850T has a slightly stronger motor than the Proform 590T. The Proform 850T’s 2.5HP motor is certainly superior to those entry-level treadmills who normally has 2.0HP and below motors. Thus, it should also be noted that the Proform 590T’s 2.25HP is slightly above average motor even though it loses to its counterpart.
Belt Width: It is a tie between the two models when it comes to the belt width. Both has the standard belt width of 20”.
Belt Length: It is another tie between the two models with 55”. Since both belong to the budget treadmills category, both have satisfactory belt lengths.
Preprogrammed Workouts: When it comes to variety, the Proform 850T wins over the Proform 590T with 24 preprogrammed workouts as opposed to the losing 16 programs.
Notable Features: When it comes to the bells and whistles, the Proform 850T wins over the Proform 590T because it has more notable features. It has a cooling fan and a 1-year extension on parts and labor warranties upon registration.
The 590T may be compatible with iFit Live and the 850T only with iFit, you still need to buy them separately which will add to expense of your treadmills.
Parts Warranty: The Proform 850T wins over the 590T because it offers an additional 1-year coverage upon registration, giving it an advantage of 2 years to 1 over its counterpart.
Labor Warranty: It is another win for the Proform 850T because it offers an extra 1-year coverage upon registration which totals to 2 years of labor warranty. The Proform 590T only has 1 year.
Machine Weight: Both models did not indicate their machine weight so it’s a dead-tie between the two.
Machine User Weight Capacity: Although this cannot be confirmed due to the missing information in both their machine weight, the Proform 850T wins with a 325-lb weight capacity over the Proform 590T’s 300-lb capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: It is a tie between the two models as they both offer 30 days of money back guarantee.
Conclusion: There is only a $50 difference between the two very affordable treadmills. However, there are so many differences when it comes to the features and bells and whistles with the extra $50. With the Proform 850T, you get to have a stronger motor, more programs, a cooling fan and an additional 1-year coverage for both the parts and labor warranties which ultimately gives you a better value for your money.
Even though the Proform 850T ranks first in its $700 and below category, the Proform 590T is still quite a decent treadmill since it offers impressive features considering its price.
We would highly recommend the Proform 850T but the Proform 590T is still a good choice if you should buy it.
