NordicTrack 2450 vs. 2950 Console Comparison: The HD touchscreen of the 2950 is 57% larger at 22-inches (the 2450’s touchscreen is 14-inches).

Bottom Line: The NordicTrack Commercial 2950 treadmill is a slightly heavier duty model than the 2450 model, offering a larger 4.25 HP motor, more workout fans, and a much larger 22-inch HD touchscreen. So, the biggest difference between the models is the huge touchscreen on the 2950. The 2450 is cheaper than the 2450 by about $700. The commercial 2450 (NTL17219), and the commercial 2950 (NTL19119) are both higher end heavy duty treadmills designed for home use. The higher power motors on both models will prevent straining, which can burn out lower horsepower motors on cheaper treadmills. Either treadmill will provide a solid workout for all users, including taller users (wide and long running belt), and runners.
