The running deck has the XtraSoft cushioning technology to give your legs and body the best support for a low impact workout.

But the bottom legs will stick out for about 2 feet, which can make it hard to fit in the closet. Unlike the other more expensive Xterra treadmills like the TRX2500, TRX3500 and TRX4500, this one doesn’t have the extra bells and whistles like the audio jack with speakers, cooling fan and the handlebar incline and speed buttons. It weighs 109.3 pounds, with a maximum  user weight capacity of 250 pounds on its heavy gauge steel frame, and measures 63.4 x 28.75 x 51.4 inches. It measures 28.5 x 28.75 x 61 inches as folded.

You have two small accessory holders for your water bottle, remote control and smart phone, and an integrated bookrack with an optimal viewing angle. It is quite easy to assemble in a few basic steps with just the tools included in the box but will be better with someone helping you out as some parts are rather heavy. A couple of customers mentioned the inaccuracy of the distance and pulse indicators on the display panel. Please note that you can’t really use the TR150 with a desk as the display panel is a bit too tall for that. You need to get a treadmill that is made up of just the running deck.

With its sturdy construction, user-friendly features and functionality and the comfy and large running belt, XTERRA TR150 offers you very good value for money. Anyone complaining about the noise level should remember that this is a low-cost treadmill for all that it offers. And you can still listen to music or watch TV even when running at higher speeds. As long as you don’t have super high expectations of a 1500 dollar treadmill, then we’re sure most of you will be pleased with this unit. The warranty offered is lifetime for the frame, 90 days for parts and labor and 1 year for the motor.
