In the ring today is the Nordictrack A2750 Pro against the Nordictrack C900 Pro.

OHIYO! It’s been a while. There are reasons I haven’t been able to post in here for a few weeks, but I’ll have to explain later. There’s no time today. The Best Buy Tournament is coming close to its end, and after comparing the A2750 Pro and the C900, we’ll have it narrowed down to just a few more.

The A2750 Pro is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the C900, so we’re going to determine if it’s worth the price increase to buy the C900 or if it’s more worth your money to just stick with the A2750.

The C900 is a very hard model to beat in its price class. It is one of the top selling treadmills of Nordictrack, well above the A2750 pro. Some of the reasons for its success are its deck and frame fortitude, its motor force, its solidness and stability, its silence, and its long list of enthralling features. For $999 you get a treadmill with a healthy 3.0 CHP motor, that can spit out a workout at max speed for hours without clamming up or complaining. The 350 lb weight capacity shows the true backbone of this model, implying its durability and capacity to hold up over time. To go along with that, the warranty offers a bit of extra confidence, granting a lifetime warranty for the motor and frame, and 3 years for the parts, and 1 year of in home labor.

The a2750 Pro appears doesn’t quite have the resume of the C900, but it does have some nice strengths to lay on the table. It actually almost has the same strength as the C900. It is designed with a steel frame and an almost unbreakable deck that can hold up 350 lbs as well. While you would likely notice, if you had the chance to run on both, that the Nordictrack A2750 Pro doesn’t quite feel as firm, steadfast, and immovable as the C900, but regardless, it still has the same weight capacity rating. The motor is a 2.75 CHP motor which is borderline on my comfort level.

Although the CHP rating doesn’t mean everything, it does mean a lot, and a smaller motor has to work harder, which equals faster wear, and less durability. However, if it’s well built, a 2.75 CHP motor can easily outperform a poorly built 3.5 CHP motor. That is why you can’t just look at the CHP and go with it, every treadmill has a different feel actual strength. If you are buying online, you’ll want to be sure to read online reviews about it like this to make sure it’s not going to fall apart on you. The A2750 motor is well designed and built which allows me to recommend it. One of the main turnoffs to the Nordictrack A2750 Pro is its short warranty on parts and labor. The motor and frame have the standard lifetime warranty, but the parts and labor are only covered for one year, which means if you get this, you will want to be very gentle with it.

Other than those main things the treadbelt is bigger on the C900 than the A2750, the C900 has a better console, and a few extra features, but not much else is different. Check out the specs below.

When all is said and done, it definitely makes sense to spend the extra $200 dollars and buy the C900. If you absolutely can’t afford the extra then the A2750 pro wouldn’t be a bad choice for its price either.
