The quiet and smooth ProForm 1800i treadmill features a powerful 3.5 HP motor ( Mach Z Commercial Plus Motor), which can reach speeds up to 12 miles per hour (in increments of 0.5 mph). The treadmill can incline between 0 (flat) to a 15 percent grade (powered). A rare feature on this treadmill is 3% decline grade.

Smart-Review Commentary: The ProForm Performance 1800i is a good heavy duty treadmill with many of the latest features and an excellent warranty. It is suitable for walking, running, and jogging. Since it folds up, it is ideal for areas where you can’t leave the treadmill open at all times. Folding is easy, thanks to the EasyLift™ Assist hydraulic lift system. The Proform 1800i treadmill has a strong 3.5 HP motor, allowing up to a 300 lb. user, which is good for this price range. An underpowered motor on cheaper treadmills will strain and burn out faster.

This treadmill has a -3% decline grade setting, so you can run downhill. This feature is rare to find in treadmills, and will build up different muscle groups. The Treadmill is fully loaded with features including 32 workout programs, Power incline, iFit, Cooling Fan, Built-in Speakers, and a multi-feature console. A tablet holder allows you to entertain yourself while working out, and can hook into the ifit program with the ifit app. The 60-inch running deck and strong 3.5 HP motor make this treadmill suitable for both runners and taller users. The feature loaded ProForm Performance 1800i is a Smart-Review Top Pick and a great value for the money for mid-range level treadmills.
