Endurance T10HRC Commercial Treadmill
Check Discounted Price
|350 lbs||3.0 CHP,|
The Endurance T10HRC from Body-Solid has been around for quite a few years, so it’s not exactly a new treadmill model. However, due to its extremely solid construction and superlative quality in all its parts, it’s still on the market to this day, and hasn’t been discontinued. It’s a commercial grade running machine that comes with the appropriate warranty for all its parts. The only downside that can actually be mentioned about it is the rather old design of the console, which doesn’t have a touchscreen display, nor it has the amenities that other newer models have, such as sound system or online connectivity.

Frame and deck
Evidently, since it’s a machine designed for commercial use, its frame is made of high tensile strength steel, 2″ x 3″ and 2″ x 4″, with a rock-solid running platform capable of withstanding high and continuous stress. Considering its steel construction, it goes without saying that the machine is really heavy. Its net weight it 264 lbs (cca 119 kg), a weight that renders the machine extremely stable. On top of that, the rear base of the deck integrates adjustable stabilizers with rubber caps, which allow you to perfectly level the running platform. The front base integrates small wheels, which ease the machine’s relocation.
As opposed to other running machines, such as the NordicTrack C 1650 or the ProForm PRO 5000, the Endurance T10HRC does not have a folding frame. Its footprint is also not exactly small. It takes 77″L x 32″W (196 x 81 cm) of floor space, and on top of that, just as any other treadmill, it requires at least 3′ of clearance at the rear, and at least 2′ of clearance on each side, for safe operation.
This Endurance treadmill is equipped with a highly durable, 18mm phenolic deck, rated for a maximum weight capacity of 350 lbs (158.7 kg). The deck integrates 6 suspension elements, designed to absorb up to 20% of the running impact on your leg joints. Therefore, a run on this treadmill is more forgiving than a run on asphalt or concrete, resulting in less joint pain and even fatigue, offering the possibility to undertake longer workouts. The deck is also low maintenance, being pre-waxed from the factory.
The running area is given by a 2-ply, heavy-duty urethane belt, fusion-seamed for strength, flexibility and smooth rolling over the phenolic deck. It’s 60″ (152.4 cm) long, and 20″ (51 cm) wide, which means it can accommodate comfortably users up to 6’5″ (195 cm). The belt is run over a set of large, 2.5″ (6.3 cm) crowned rollers, for extra stability and smoothness of motion.
Last but not least, the steel parts in the machine’s construction are powder coated with corrosion resistant paint, black and dark gray.
The Endurance T10HRC treadmill is equipped with a powerful 3.0 continuous horsepower duty motor, designed to exceed the performance of treadmills rated for home-use only. It’s protected by Pulse Width Modulation technology (P.W.M), and air cooled, in order to maintain its performance during the longest running workouts. The integrated circuit breaker protects the motor and control board from power surges.
The machine’s speed range is 0.5-10 MPH (0.8 – 16 km/h). Speed can be adjusted gradually, from the controls + / – keys on the right side of the control board, but quick speed controls from 1 to 10 are also available. The starting speed point is 0.5 MPH, but up from there, it can be adjusted in 0.1 MPH increments. This means you can easily find the most comfortable pace for your workout.
The motor itself is fairly quiet, the level of noise produced by it shouldn’t interfere with your TV, the music played through the console or your personal sound system. Most of the sound that you will hear during your running, is the sound of your cadence.
One last aspect to mention here regards the power requirements for this machine. The T10HRC Endurance treadmill is to be connected to a 120V power circuit. The power cable is several feet long, finished with a U.S. standard plug (not an adapter). The connection point of the cable to the machine is at the front base. There’s also an On/Off switch near the cable port.
Incline and step-up height
This treadmill is equipped with a motorized incline system. It offers an incline range from 0% to 15% (0 – 8.5°), aspect that can add an important degree of difficulty to your workouts. Evidently, since the incline is motorized, it can only be adjusted from the machine’s control board. There are no quick adjustment keys for the incline, as there are for speed. Thus, incline can be adjusted gradually, from the – / + keys on the left side of the console. Also, some of the workout programs in the console’s database involve incline; therefore, if you choose them for your workouts, incline (along with speed) will adjust automatically.
The deck’s step-up height is approx. 9″ (23 cm). Also, the maximum incline elevates its front part by at least 5 extra inches (12.7 cm). Therefore, make sure that the ceiling height in the room where you will be using the machine, is at least 22-23 inches (56-58 cm) higher than your height, to avoid any issues.
Since the T10HRC treadmill is an older model, naturally its console is not exactly one of the most up to date ones. It features 4 LED-based displays. The one on the left indicates the selected incline level, the one on the right shows the current speed setting, the lower middle one shows time, calories, heart rate and distance, while the top larger display shows the profiles of the workout program, or indicates the distance as a race track, keeping count of the laps you have completed.
The console allows you to input your age and weight, in order to provide a more appropriate reading of the calories burned. Speed is calculated in MPH only, while distance is calculated in miles only.
The control unit features 25 workout programs, which basically cover all the workouts that a runner may require, for a complete training regimen. Among these programs, there are 3 Walking Courses, 3 Running Courses, a 15-min Cardio Workout, a 20-min Interval Workout, a 25-min Fat Burn Workout, and a 30-min Endurance Workout. Target goal programs for time, distance and calories are available as well. Also, there are two Custom Workout settings which give you the possibility to create your own workout.
A Heart Rate Control program is also available. It allows you to select a percentage interval for your target heart rate. The machine does not integrate pulse sensors, such as the AFG 7 3AT or Schwinn MY16 830. It can only read your pulse via an HR chest strap, accessory which is included.
The machine’s control board is easy to operate. Incline and speed are adjusted from the – / + controls, while for speed there are also quick controls from 1 to 10. The CoolDown button activates the cooldown function. The Start key sets the belt in motion for the Manual workout. The Select and Enter keys are used for navigation through programs and selection of values. The big red button on the right side of the board covers the Pause and Reset functions. And finally, the left side of the board hosts the machine’s safety key.
Assembly and Maintenance
The deck with the motors, rollers and all the other internal parts, comes assembled from the factory. Thus, for assembly you only need to add the upright posts, the handlebars, and the console, connecting the cables. This shouldn’t take more than an hour. The included manual provides step-by-step guidance for the assembly. All tools required for assembly are also included.
Maintenance requires the periodic vacuuming of the running belt to prevent any debris or textile fibers to be dragged into the motor. The periodic check of the machine’s joints is also recommended. Lubrication is not required, as the deck comes pre-lubricated with high-grade industrial lubricants from the factory.
