Nordictrack Commercial 2150 or Nordictrack Commercial 1750?
~~Side-By-Side Treadmill Comparison Review~~
Motor: The Nordictrack Commercial 2150 gets the first win with its 3.8HP motor. On the other hand, the Nordictrack Commercial 1750 has a 3.5HP motor. It should be noted however that both are considered to be sufficient for their belt size but a stronger motor is always better.
Belt Width: It is a tie between the two models as they both offer the average belt width of 20”.
Belt Length: It is also another tie in terms of the belt length as they both offer 60”.
Preprogrammed Workouts: The two treadmills are tied in this category as they both offer 36 preprogrammed workouts. This means that users get to have more options and they won’t get bored easily.
Notable Features: The Nordictrack Commercial 2150 gets a win over the Nordictrack Commercial 1750 in this category. There are basically three features that make the Commercial 2150 a better choice than its counterpart. It has a bigger touch screen for you to enjoy the built-in iFit Live and Android browser better. It is also equipped with Autobreeze fans that can be found on the console. Plus, it has a decline feature which has a maximum of 3%. This is considered to be rare in treadmills and it makes for a more intense workout.
Parts Warranty: It is a tie between the two models in the parts warranty category. They both offer 5 years which means that the manufacturers are confident about their products.
Labor Warranty: It is also another tie between the two models in terms of labor warranty. You should take advantage of this since these days, labor costs are pretty expensive. This can definitely save you a lot of money.
Machine Weight: The Nordictrack Commercial 2150 and the Nordictrack Commercial 1750 are at a deadlock in this category since they both didn’t mention the actual weight of their respective machines. This is disappointing since a treadmill’s weight is a big factor in your decision process as it indicated how sturdy the machine is. The heavier the machine, the sturdier it is.
Machine User Weight Capacity: Both models can accommodate users who weigh up to 375 lbs. However, this cannot be confirmed since they didn’t indicate their actual machine weight. But for your safety, you should maintain a 100-lb difference between the machine weight and the maximum capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: They are also both tied with a 30-day money back guarantee. This means that if you are not happy with your machine’s performance within the 30-day period, you can easily return it.
Conclusion: Both the Nordictrack Commercial 2150 and the Nordictrack Commercial 1750 are equipped with features that are usually seen in higher-end models. Both have strong motor, a variety of programs, good warranty deals on parts and labor, bells and whistles and also on its money back guarantee of 30 days.
However, there is a $300 difference between the two at the time of the review, and the Commercial 2150 offers a stronger motor and a bigger touch screen which makes browsing the internet more enjoyable. It is also equipped with an on-board cooling fan and a rare decline feature. Should you consider the price, you can still go for the less expensive Commercial 1750 as it is even ranked 1st among its $1000-$1500 price range while its pricier counterpart is only 4th in the $1500-$2000 category.
In this industry, you get more when you pay more but it still boils down to how much you are willing to spend on a home treadmill.
