Treadmill Review

Updated: 5-10-2019


You can maximize your time at your desk when you use the SOLE TD80 Treadmill Desk. Added to the SOLE treadmill lineup for 2019, the TD80 brings the sturdiness of SOLE to workstations. The desk area is spacious, measuring 38” long and 47” wide, allowing you plenty of space to spread out your work. You can also move the treadmill display console position on the desk, allowing for a high amount of space usage flexibility.In many ways, the TD80 is similar to the NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum, from price point to some base features, though NordicTrack’s treadmill desk has a few more features than the TD80. However, even with some differences in features, the TD80 is still an excellent treadmill desk that Treadmill Reviews is happy to recommend to our readers.


Price

On average, you will find the TD80 priced at $1,499.


The TD80 Is Built For Users who:

  • Want to maximize work - Desk work can be draining, leaving little energy to workout after the work is completed for the day. By having a treadmill desk, you can combine the two activities and make the most of your workday.
  • Need a sturdy treadmill desk - Not all treadmill desks are created equal, and some of the current offerings are distinctly flimsy. Instead of investing in a weak desk, the TD80 provides a well-built treadmill desk you can feel confident using.
  • Require a compact machine - While not all treadmill desks can be folded up, the TD80 is able to safely fold up.

Why The TD80 earned 3.7 stars

  • Well-constructed treadmill desk - No corners were cut while constructing this treadmill deck. With a durable frame, sturdy desktop, and high-grade steel making up most of the body, you can trust this treadmill desk as you work and workout.
  • Good warranty coverage - While some treadmill desks have skimpy warranties, the TD80 has a lifetime frame warranty, 5-year motor warranty, and 2-year labor & parts coverage.
  • Some features are limited - When compared to competitor treadmill desks such as the Desk Platinum, it is clear that some of the features of the TD80 are a little limited.

Main Specs - 7/10

Specs “Quick Review”:
  • Motor Size: 2.5 CHP
  • Running Area: 20” W by 50” L
  • Weight Capacity: 325 lbs
  • Folding: Yes

  • Max Speed: 4 MPH
  • Treadmill Best For: Walkers, Desk Workers

Motor Size - There is a decent 2.5 CHP motor in the TD80. The motor runs quietly as you work, so you don’t have to work that it will distract you.

Running Area - You have plenty of space to walk as you work on the TD80, with a 20” wide belt that is 50” long. Since the pace will never go above a walk, even taller people can easily use this treadmill desk.

Weight Capacity - Individuals who weigh up to 325 lbs can safely use the TD80 treadmill. And, unlike other treadmills where we aren’t sure that the weight rating is right, you can trust SOLE treadmills.

Folding - To fold up the TD80, you need to make sure that the desktop is folded up first, then raise the deck up until it locks into place. When you want to release the deck, all you need to do is pull on the lever and allow it to descend, of which it can reach the floor hands-free.

Space / Footprint - The TD80 won’t take up a ton of room in your office, as it measures 35” wide, 70” long, and 57” tall. It also folds up to save you room, measuring 37” wide, 36” long, and 71” tall in the folded position.

Max Speed - Like with most treadmill desks, the TD80 can reach a moderate walking pace at best, with a speed range of 0.5-4 MPH.

Build Quality - 8/10

TD80 Review: Build Quality
  • Warranties - Lifetime frame, 5-year motor, 2-year parts and labor
  • Roller Size - 2.5”
  • Cushioning - Cushion Flex Whisper Deck
  • Customer Support - Phone or email
  • Return Policy - 30-day return policy, with an 8% restocking fee

Like you would expect from SOLE treadmills, the TD80 is a sturdy machine. The base is similar to the SOLE F80, which is one of our favorite treadmills at its price point. Matching the sturdy quality of the base of the TD80, the frame supporting the desk and the desk area is also of good build quality. It can take some pressure from you leaning on it, but it is best if you don’t rest too heavily on the desk so that you don’t stress the screws anchoring the desktop.As the TD80 can only reach a top speed of 4 MPH, the SOLE Cushion Flex Whisper Deck cushioning technology is plenty to keep the deck comfortable. We do recommend you wear good walking or running shoes to provide your feet with extra cushioning.


Bottom Line Review Of The SOLE TD80 Treadmill Desk

Overall, if you are looking for a quality treadmill desk, the SOLE TD80 is a good option to consider. It comes as a whole unit with its desk, with an adjustable desk height, and is able to safely fold up, which many other treadmill desks are not able to do.The TD80 falls a bit short of the NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum as the Desk Platinum comes with incline features, USB ports for charging, a greater speed range, and the ability to use it in the standing or sitting position. So, if the TD80 sounds good, you may want to check out the NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum before committing.

If you are looking to buy the SOLE TD80, the best place to do that is directly from SOLE. By purchasing the TD80 from the manufacturer, you can be sure that you will have full coverage warranty to protect your treadmill desk.
