The JOROTO IW9-PRO is one of the treadmills released in 2020.

It’s a machine with a compact construction that can be folded flat or stored vertically, against a wall.

The JOROTO IW9-PRO features a fairly sturdy steel frame, combining oval and rectangular tubes in its construction. All the metallic parts are double-coated with a durable paint finish. There are two color versions for the IW9 treadmill, one black/red, and one silver. In terms of features, they are the same.
The treadmill also integrates several plastic parts. The side rail covers, the motor cover, the console casing, the device holder, the bottle holders, and several other small covers are made from a durable thermoplastic material.
The machine is not extremely large. With all the parts assembled, it is approx. 65″ (165 cm) long, and 31″ (79 cm) wide. This being said, it should fit in a small room or apartment, but it’s still recommended to allow some clearance at the rear and on each side of the deck.
One of the main advantages of the JOROTO IW9 treadmill is that it can be folded flat which will render its height to approx. 8.7″ (22 cm). Thus, you can store it under a bed or under a couch if there is at least 9″ (23 cm) of clearance underneath it. The treadmill can also be stored vertically, against a wall.
The machine is not super heavy but does weigh approx. 134 lbs (60.7 kg). Therefore, the transport of the packaged unit requires two persons. However, once it is unboxed and assembled, it can easily be moved by only one person. Its front base has transport wheels while its rear base features a lifting handle.
The JOROTO IW9-PRO treadmill is equipped with a pretty sturdy deck. Even though it has an incline system, it is still rated for a maximum user weight limit of 260 lbs (118 kg) which is not bad. It also offers a fairly decent running surface, 50″ (127 cm) long, and 20″ (51 cm) wide. This being said, it should be able to accommodate users up to 6’2″ (188 cm) with no problem. Taller persons should still be able to use this machine but may not benefit from a complete range of motion while running at full speed.
The tread belt is multi-layered. It’s actually a 5-layer belt featuring an anti-slip, textured top layer, two shock absorption layers, and a noise reduction layer, while the bottom layer is designed to stick better to the rollers and to improve the overall structural sturdiness of the belt.
The exact diameter of the rollers is not specified. The front roller is approx. 2.1″ (5.5 cm) in diameter, while the rear roller is thinner. They’re made of stainless steel and integrate high-grade, sealed bearings for a smooth belt motion.
The deck integrates several shock absorption elements. They’re all concealed by the plastic covers of the side rails. Although they are non-adjustable, as is the case for the NordicTrack T 8.5 S, they do reduce a fairly decent amount of the impact generated by each foot strike. Therefore, running on this treadmill is way better for your joints than running outdoors.
The JOROTO IW9-PRO treadmill is equipped with an automatic incline system. This means that you don’t have to pause your workout to adjust the incline as is the case for machines with a manual incline system, such as the RUNOW 3305EB, for example. Evidently, in order to adjust the incline, the machine needs to be connected to a power source.
The incline system consists of a small motor (different from the treadmill’s drive motor), and a small lift placed under the front part of the deck. Thus, when you adjust the incline, the motor controls the lift which elevates or lowers the front section of the deck.
The unit’s incline range is 0% – 10%. It has 10 incline levels, which pretty much means that the incline increments are 1%. The console does not have pre-set incline controls. You can only adjust the incline by pressing the incline button and then turning the knob in the middle.
With the incline set at 0%, the height of the machine’s running platform is approx. 6″ (15.2 cm). Conversely, with the incline all the way to the top, the front of the deck gains several inches. Therefore, to avoid any issues, it’s best to use this machine in a room with a ceiling height that is at least 15″ (38 cm) higher than your own height.
The JOROTO IW9-PRO is an electric treadmill. Therefore, in order to adjust the speed of the belt, you have to connect it to a (110V) power source. A power cable is included with the machine. The connector for the cable is at the front of the deck and next to it there is an On/Off switch.
The machine is equipped with a 1.5 HP (3.0 peak power) motor. It’s a fairly decent motor for a small, home-use treadmill and should perform accordingly even for long distance running, without overheating or losing speed. It is recommended, though, to pause it and let it rest for a few minutes after every two hours of continuous use.
The motor offers a speed range of 0.6 – 9.0 MPH. The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 MPH so you can easily adjust your pace. The console does not have pre-set controls for speed. In other words, you can only adjust the speed gradually, by pressing the speed button and then rotating the adjustment knob in the middle.
The motor itself is pretty quiet. However, depending on your weight, running technique, running gear, room resonance, and other factors, your cadence may generate more or less noise. Also, since it’s not a super-powerful motor, the machine shouldn’t add more than a few dollars to your monthly electricity bill, even if you use it daily.
The JOROTO IW9-PRO treadmill is equipped with a minimalistic console. It features an LED display that shows time, distance, speed, incline, and calories burned. Speed and distance are shown in MPH and miles. There is also a heart rate reading but the machine does not have any pulse sensors and it is not clear if you can sync it with a wireless heart rate chest strap.
The console does not have Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity. It also isn’t compatible with any fitness apps, so you cannot sync it with your phone. However, it does have 12 programs to keep you motivated. The console display does not show the program’s profiles, but as a general idea, each program targets a specific type of workout. For example, some have an interval layout, other progressively increase the speed, then lower it, while other will focus on helping you burn more calories. Each program adjusts both the speed and incline and has a default duration of 30 minutes. Also, if a program is in use, you can still adjust the speed and incline manually whenever you like.
The console also has target settings. It offers the possibility to set a time target, a distance target, or a calorie target. If a target is set, the console will count down from the selected value until it reaches zero. This feature can be quite useful if you want to keep track of your progress from one workout session to another.
The console is pretty easy to use. It has four buttons and a large multi-function knob in the middle. The buttons are Program, Incline, Speed, and Pattern. Evidently, from the program button you can select the desired program (they’re numbered P1-P12), while the Pattern button covers the goal-setting function. In order to adjust the speed or the incline, you have to select it from the corresponding button and then rotate the knob.
Assembly and Maintenance
This JOROTO treadmill comes pre-assembled and folded. So, you only need to remove it from the box, unfold the two masts with the console and secure them in the upright position, then unfold the handrails, and add the device holder and the bottle holders. This shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes of your time. All the necessary tools are included.
For maintenance, the belt requires periodic lubrication. A bottle of lubricant is included and the manual provides instructions on how to carry out this task. Other than this, you only have to keep the machine clean.
