TreadDesk Update - Tread dead after 2 years

My Treaddesk Tread started making loud buzzing noises last September just a month outside of the 2-year warranty expired. I contacted Treadesk who thought it was probably the capacitor on the controller board, I could replace the board for $100 including shipping. I opted to replace the capacitor myself, as that could be sourced for $15. Replacing the cap didn't seem to make much difference. Initially the noise went away, but then the entire tread would cut out after 25 seconds, after a few…See More

After a close comparison, I decided to go with the TreadDesk, mainly due to the price. We have since purchased 4 more for our offices and I then had to have one at my home as well. To say that they have improved the health of those that use them would be quite the understatement. Not only has everyone that uses them lost weight, they…

Office walker walking towards health

http://www.sanluisvalleyhealth.org/news/office-job-walk-while-you-work/2013-10-14

2 years now. 1,820 miles in my office. The tread is still good. I put a calendar reminder once per month to vacuum around and under the hood. I lubricate the tread belt from time to time.

My body weight has been very stable (some fluctuation). My vacation was spent hiking in England 60-70 miles…
