When it comes to buying a treadmill, we understand how daunting it can be because of how hard it is to move around. We have seen so many people completely rejecting the idea of bringing a treadmill home because of how heavy it will be. In this article, we are going to talk about how much does a treadmill weigh and compare a few treadmill models to give you an idea.
For people who are looking for stronger engines and long-lasting treadmills, we recommend going for heavier and bulkier treadmills. They have a lot more capacity and have better build qualities. Not to mention, their entire mechanism can last for years.
Low-weighted treadmill usually has cheap quality motors that don’t last long. Here are some reasons why it is important to know the weight of your treadmill,
- Moving it with a truck
- Delivering to a new location
- Determining whether you can take it up to the second or third floor or not
- Design your home layout accordingly

Types of treadmills
There are three main types of treadmills,
- Manual treadmill – It weighs around 60lbs
- Motorized treadmill – It weighs around 200lbs
- Folding back treadmill – It weighs around 190lbs
- Commercial treadmill – It weighs around 300lbs
As you must have noticed, every brand has its weight limit when it comes to treadmills. But the major threshold for a motorized treadmill with regards to weight is at least 200lbs. And for manual treadmills, the threshold is around 60lbs.
Most of the heavier treadmills you see on the market come with wheels at the bottom. This makes it easier for the user to move the treadmill around when they want to change its placing. Some of these treadmills are even foldable which makes maneuvering a whole lot easier.
