Frame and deck

The Ancheer S5400 treadmill is built on a steel frame, double coated with corrosion resistant paint. The finish is black in color, this being the only color available for this model. It’s a fairly large fitness machine, with an assembled footprint of approx. 68.5″ x 28.7″ (174 x 73 cm).  However, it does have a folding design, and with the deck folded up, its length is reduced to only 23.6″ (60 cm).

The deck’s folding system integrates a hydraulic element which assists you with lowering or folding it up. Also, the rear part of the metallic base frame is equipped with two transport wheels, so you can easily relocate the unit when in folded position.

The machine offers excellent stability. To begin with, its assembled weight is approx. 132 lbs (~60 kg). This weight plays an important role in its overall sturdiness. Plus, the front metallic base rests on adjustable stabilizers with large rubber caps, which also enhance the machine’s stability.

Although this Ancheer treadmill offers running speeds, the running surface isn’t extremely long. It’s only 48.8″L x 18.1″W (124 x 46 cm), which means that a taller person than 6’0″ (183 cm) will find it rather short and may step on the motor cover if running. But nonetheless, the machine is perfect for walking and jogging.

The deck features a fairly sturdy construction. It can support users up to 300 lbs (136 kg). It uses a heavy-duty belt, resistant to stretching, which offers quite an adherent surface. The side step rails have sturdy PVC covers. But the most important aspect with regards to the deck construction of this running machine is its cushioning system. The deck integrates 4 shock absorption springs on each side, reducing the running impact by up to 25%. Therefore, running on this treadmill is much more forgiving for your joints than running on concrete or asphalt.

The deck’s step-up height is approx. 9″ (23 cm). This being said, it’s best to place the machine in a room with a ceiling height that’s over 15″ (38 cm), to avoid any issues.

Motor

Although the motor of the Ancheer S5400 treadmill isn’t designed for high running speeds or intense training, it’s still a bit more powerful than the one equipped on the Ancheer S9100. It’s a 3.0 HP motor, offering a speed range between 0.5 – 8.0 MPH. The downside is that the speed settings on the console are only displayed in km/h. Therefore, the console unit offers quick adjustment keys for the 5, 8, and 12 speed settings, the 12 speed setting offering a running speed at 12 km/h, which is approx. 8.0 MPH.

The motor performs well during long usage sessions, without overheating or losing performance. It’s also quiet, most of the noise generated during usage is due to the user’s cadence, and not by the motor.

The console features dual-function speed adjustment keys. By pressing them once, the speed adjusts in 0.1 km/h increments, while if pressing and holding the key, the speed will increase in increments of 0.8 km/h (0.5 MPH).

Control unit

The Ancheer S5400 treadmill is equipped with a console that offers several extra functions than a basic model. To begin with, it is equipped with an LCD display which tracks time, speed, distance, calories burned, and heart rate. It’s divided into several panels and shows all these workout metrics at once, so you don’t have to use a SCAN function to alternate them all the time.

Although the unit can monitor your heart rate, it is not telemetric. In other words, it doesn’t work with HR chest strap transmitters. In order to monitor your heart rate, you will have to use the metallic EKG sensors built-in the front handlebars of the machine. It also doesn’t have any personal data input function; you can’t input your weight, age or gender, and therefore the calorie reading isn’t extremely accurate.

The console unit doesn’t have any only connectivity or functions. However, it does have 12 pre-set programs. These adjust the belt’s speed automatically, allowing you to quickly swap between workouts that focus different muscle groups.

As we’ve mentioned above, the unit’s speed is shown only in km/h on the console’s display, while distance is shown in kilometers. You can’t select imperial units for the display of these metrics. Speed can be adjusted gradually from the +/- keys on the console, or the buttons built-in the side handlebar. However, as we’ve mentioned above, the console also has quick speed adjustment keys for the settings 5, 8 and 12.

Pause and Start buttons are also available. These offer the possibility to interrupt your workout without losing your workout data, or alternate treadmill sessions with other types of workouts.

In terms of extra, non-fitness features, the console unit is equipped with a sound system which consists of two small speakers one on each side of the dashboard. There are two large accessory/bottle holders also one on each side of the dashboard. Plus, there’s a small ledge above the keypad which can serve as a tablet holder.

Assembly and Maintenance

Like most treadmills, the Ancheer S5400 comes partially assembled. The deck with the motor, rollers, and belt are already assembled and attached to the metallic frame base. Therefore, you only have to attach the upright console masts, the console and attach the required wires. This shouldn’t take more than 30 min. The manual provides all the information necessary for the assembly, and the tools required for it are included.

For maintenance, you’ll have to keep the running belt clean, free of any small objects or textile fibers which may be dragged into the motor or the rollers and cause damage. The deck requires periodic lubrication, and for it, a silicone lubricant is recommended. Also, you should periodically check the integrity of the machine, look for loose or damaged parts.
