Horizon LS780T Treadmill Review

Horizon Treadmills are my favorite budget treadmills on the market right now. HorizonFitness offers the best treadmills for the buck you can possibly find and the quality is unmatched by any other manufacturer that sells treadmills in the under $1000 category. However, there are better Horizon Treadmills than others. Does the Horizon LS780T Treadmill measure up to other Horizon Treadmills? Read the rest of my treadmill review and judge for yourself!

The Horizon LS780T Treadmill comes with a 2.0 HP motor. That’s pretty much standard for this price range, what’s worse is that the Horizon T91 Treadmill comes with a motor just as powerful but costs $50 less. I’m a little disappointed with that fact. There’s not even much more on the Horizon LS780T Treadmill to justify the 8% price increase as the rest of my horizon treadmill review will reveal.

20” x 50” Running Area
The Horizon LS780T Treadmill has a 20” x 50” running area. Once again, this is identical to the Horizon T91 Treadmill and definitely not worth paying an extra $50 for. You’re definitely going to notice a pattern in my Horizon LS780T Treadmill Review.

Speed and Incline
The Horizon LS780T Treadmill has a 10 MPH top speed and a 10% maximum incline. Once again the Horizon LS780T Treadmill matches up exactly with the Horizon T91 Treadmill. Do you still think it’s worth paying an extra $50? I think not.

Final Analysis
I could go on a lot more about how the Horizon LS780T Treadmill is exactly identical to the Horizon T91 Treadmill but it’s not. The Horizon LS780T Treadmill is different, it has a blue console. Okay, I’m a huge fan of the color blue and paying an extra $50 might be worth the cost to someone like me, but it’s probably not worth it to you. I strongly suggest you check out the Horizon T91 Treadmill before you pull the trigger on the Horizon LS780T Treadmill. If you’re still hell bent on buying it, do yourself a favor and Click here to get it directly from Horizon Fitness.
