Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Benefits

Over 250+ of user voices, most of them agree that Weslo Cadence G 5.9 series is a great treadmill for the price. You can’t find any cheaper treadmill with a built as sturdy and solid as Weslo G 5.9. Any cheaper is like buying a bike without its wheels.

However, This is NOT the best treadmill for heavy runner. It’s only for walk (fast walking), jogging or slow running that doesn’t include heavy humping on the deck (or it will break if you are heavy enough). Its 2.25-HP impulse motor is not the fastest as well. Experts recommend us to own one with motor above 3 HP, but to tell you the truth, they are all expensive enough to make you scream. 🙂

If you are a frequent outdoor runner, you may find the belt size a little bit narrow at 16-inch. Common treadmill nowadays have 20-inch wide belt and 60-inch long running course. This treadmill indeed have its own plus and minus, however, the price has offset most of its weaknesses, offering only the bare minimum, but enough for daily short sweating session.

It’s also worth mention that you won’t get an automatic inclines feature (like a push of button) because you have to manually lift up the treadmill and adjust the inclines (only two settings: 1.5 percent and 6 percents) on its base.

Seriously, Treadmill Doctor (an expert, obviously) rate it really low with negative review. However, I found that most users are happy with it. On the flip side, lots of complains that I read is about the beat up box on arrival.

As if it was going through some harsh environment when shipping. But most said it’s only the box, the treadmill itself is safe from harm because it’s protected with cardboard, styrofoam and plastic wrapping.

One last common complain is that you have to assemble the treadmill by yourself. Some face problems, but some assemble it like toys (easy). The most challenging part when assembling is matching the nut holes. Luckily, some users offer advises that you can use to solve this problem. See below for more details.

So, what is the conclusion?

If you are asking for cheap, solid treadmill (minus the bells and whistles) — Weslo Cadence G 5.9 is a good choice.
Want a more advanced, sturdier, wider and premium (like the one in a luxury gym)? — look somewhere else. 🙂

Tips From Real Users

  1. You have to regularly clean the dust and sweat off if you want it to live longer. It will cause switch problem (on and off problems and speed problems)
  2. It will automatically shut off after 100 minutes, so you can use it like a walk in a park while playing with your phone or tablet. But watch out for the counter, it will stop instantly and throw you out of balance
  3. Never remove the console from the treadmill to avoid unwanted problem
  4. No desk? Create your own using a shelf by overlaying on top of it. As long as the desk is wider than the treadmill, you are good to go
  5. Some users received their packaging in bad condition (the box). Lots of tears on the outside, but inside was great, fully cushioned with styrofoam, wrapped in plastic and covered in cardboard
  6. When you have received broken parts, make sure to fully assembly the treadmill first before making a phone call to the support (make sure no other parts are broken). If you make phone call first, they will ask you to do the same thing anyway 🙂
  7. Replacement parts will arrive at your doorstep about 2-4 business days (depend on your location)
  8. You might need to get some help to prop the treadmill up. It will make assembling much easier
  9. You can put iPad in front of the panel, one short bottle at the left side cup holder, and books. However, it’s much better if you can get an addons for the desk (see accessories)
  10. Some users are just too lucky to be picked by the defected units (out of thousands units!). If you are the lucky one, make sure you are purchasing this treadmill from a reliable store (like the Big A?) Why? it’s much easier to refund and less cold calling & speaking with the “robot support” of the supplier
  11. Avoid this treadmill if you are weighting > 200lbs. Some users said it will start to squeaking on every steps
  12. If you face problem when trying to line up the bolt holes when assembling, try balancing the bottom of the treadmill with some books to lift it up. It will help you line it up easier
