Comments

  • The Proform 8.0 ZT is not without its problems. Though it’s one of the newer treadmills offered by Proform, compared to the other models, the Proform 8.0 ZT has probably one of the weakest warranties with only 90 days for parts and labor. Additionally, the motor only has a 7 year warranty which is ridiculously short considering that most motors are warranted for life or something in the range of 20+ years. Perhaps they needed to cut back on the length of the warranty because they’re offering so one of their coolest looking consoles but a short warranty leaves a lot to be desired.
