Nordictrack Elite 9500 Pro or Nordictrack Commercial 1750?
~~Side-By-Side Treadmill Comparison Review~~
Motor: The motor is the heart of a treadmill and you always want a strong motor which is why the Elite 9500 Pro wins this category with its 3.8HP motor as opposed to the 3.5HP of the Commercial 1750.
Belt Width: The Elite 9500 Pro wins this category with a 22” belt width. This is rare since most treadmills have the standard 20” just like the Commercial 1750 has.
Belt Length: When it comes to belt lengths, the Elite 9500 Pro and the Commercial 1750 are tied with 60”. This is also the standard belt length which is ideal if you want to be able to move and stride freely.
Preprogrammed Workouts: The Elite 9500 Pro wins this category by having 4 more preprogrammed workouts than the Commecial 1750’s 36. Variety is the key to a successful and a more enjoyable workout for most users.
Notable Features: The Elite 9500 Pro wins over the Commercial 1750 with its more and improved features. Although the two may have some similar features such as having a built-in iFit Live module and a Quadflex cushioning, the Elite 9500 has an edge over the Commercial 1750 with its wider touch screen tablet, an adjustable cushioning and an on-board cooling fan.
Parts Warranty: Both models are tied in the parts warranty category as they both have 5 years of warranty which means that you can get a better value for your money with the longer warranty period.
Labor Warranty: Both models are also tied in the labor warranty category as they both offer a 2-year worth of free service. With this, you no longer have to worry about the expensive labor costs within 2 years.
Machine Weight: Nordictrack has not released information regarding their machines’ weights. Therefore, both are tied in this category.
Machine User Weight Capacity: Having not known the exact machine weight, we can only assume that the Commercial 1750’s 375-lb weight capacity is true, making it the winner over the Elite 9500 Pro’s 350-lb capacity. To be on the safe side, you should not have more than a 100-lb difference between the two factors.
Money Back Guarantee: Both the Elite 9500 Pro and the Commercial 1750 are tied in the money back guarantee category with 30 days. Within this period, you can easily return the product if you feel unsatisfied with the performance of the machine.

Generally, it depends on how much you are willing to spend for a treadmill since both models are highly recommended. But if you are willing to spare another $500 more with the Nordictrack Elite 9500 Pro, you get to have a bigger touch screen tablet, a cooling fan feature, a stronger motor, a rare decline of up to 3% and an adjustable cushioning.
