Xterra Trail Racer 6.8
Reviewed by TreadmillReviews.com
The Xterra Trail Racer 6.8 is the high end treadmill of the Xterra pack. This is the most luxurious and feature packed treadmill you can get from this company. It isn’t priced significantly higher than the other choices, but the features are not extravagantly different either. The 6.8 is a great treadmill with its 20″ x 60″ treadbelt, 3.5 CHP motor, and 400 lb user weight capacity, but it not necessarily the best value for your money. In fact, this treadmill does not differ a whole lot from the 6.6, which is priced $200 less.
The features on the 6.8 are impressive, but not much better than the 6.6. The 6.8 has the exact same programs as the 6.6: the 7 plus Manual standard programs, the 2 custom programs, and the 2 heart rate controlled programs. These are the most impressive features you’ll find on Xterra treadmills and most users seem to be impressed with these programs. The 6.8 is really identical to the 6.6, other than the larger motor and heavier user weight capacity. Oh, and the warranty is a little better. These miniscule differences will not really matter much, though, and I don’t know if they are worth an extra $200.
The 6.8 is definitely going to be the strongest and most sturdy machine in the Xterra lineup, so if you are most concerned with that, then this machine might be the right decision for you. It will probably last longer than any other Xterra treadmill, and the warranty is the best to cushion that even more. This machine receives extremely positive reviews from its customers and everyone compliments the heavy duty-ness of the machine. This machine is a pretty solid value and I recommend it for users looking for a sturdy and strong machine.
Overall, the Trail Racer 6.8 has excellent features and specs and receives excellent feedback and opinions from users online. There are definitely more pros than cons on this machine. The only thing I’d suggest is making looking at the Xterra 6.6, because it has similar specs and features for a pretty significantly lower cost. This machine might be a little more heavy duty and strong, though, so if that is what you are looking for, I’d recommend this one still over the 6.6. The only reason I suggest looking at the 6.6 is because it is by far the best value treadmill in the Xterra lineup.
