Purchasing a car with a weak engine is out of the question. Purchasing a slow horse is unheard of. Why would purchasing a treadmill with a weak motor make any sense to any knucklehead alive? There are always a good amount of pitfalls for purchasing a piece of electronic equipment that you don’t understand, but don’t let something as simple as a weak motor be the moronic decision that you made. Let it be that you just didn’t know the manufacturer in question.
The feature known as CHP is the continuous horsepower version of the treadmill. The continuous power refers to the power that the treadmill uses as it is being used by the runner or exerciser. If this is less than the average 1.5 horsepower then you are not making the right purchase and if you already made the purchase then mark yourself down as having been “took”. A treadmill that offers less than 1.5 horsepower might as well be an asphalt parking lot or a mall sidewalk.
The motor’s constant speed is regulated by the transmission of the speed by the fixed speed alternating current motor. The motor is responsible for the running of your machine so make sure to understand it first. The speed of your treadmill is based on the direct current motor that lets the motor itself change speeds as the user chooses. Make sure this is easily functioned and understandable. The speed is also regulated by the variable speed motor that drive the running belt directly.
Know how much you want from this piece of equipment to be able to harness its power. The maximum, or peak horsepower, is important to keep from stalling out; this is not something you will want to skimp on. The continuous horsepower is what is being used to power the treadmill when someone is on it. This is the most important part of your treadmill motor because it makes the difference to your workout.
If all of this sounds like Chinese arithmetic to you it probably isn’t sinking in, read it again or simply understand that a cheaper motor probably isn’t any good!
