The RUNOW 3305EB treadmill features a steel frame made of rectangular tubing. All the steel tubes in its construction are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The color used is black, this being the only color available for this model (at least for the moment).
Of course, the machine also integrates several plastic parts. However, their role is protective and cosmetic, so they won’t reduce the overall sturdiness of the treadmill. The most notable ones are the motor cover, the side rail covers, the console display casing, and the accessory tray.
This RUNOW treadmill is not super large compared to other models, such as Horizon Fitness 7.8 AT, for example. It is approx. 60.4″ (153 cm) long, and 26.6″ (67 cm) wide, while its highest point is given by the top of the console which reaches 55.9″ (142 cm) above the floor. It is recommended, though, to allow at least two feet of clearance on each side of the treadmill, and at least three feet of clearance at the back of the deck, for safe usage.
The unit’s frame is foldable. The deck can fold up so you can save some space when the machine is not in use. With the deck folded up, the unit’s footprint becomes 37.6″L x 26.6″W (95 x 67 cm). Also, the folding mechanism involves a hydraulic cylinder that slowly lowers the deck when you unfold it.
This treadmill is fairly heavy. Its net weight is approx. 120 lbs (54.4 kg). This being said, the transport of the packaged unit requires two people or at least a box trolley. However, once it is assembled, it can easily be moved by only one person as the front base frame is equipped with transport wheels.
Deck construction and incline
The RUNOW 3305EB treadmill offers a running surface of 49.2″L x 16.5″W (125 x 42 cm). This being said, it should be able to accommodate users up to 6’0″ (183 cm) comfortably, allowing a complete range of motion. The deck is also pretty durable; it is rated for a maximum user weight limit of 280 lbs (127 kg).
The belt features a multi-layer construction. Its top layer has a diamond pattern in order to improve your footwear’s grip while running. The multi-layer design also adds to the overall cushioning of the running platform.
The machine’s deck is equipped with several cushioning elements. The shock absorption is higher at the front part of the deck in order to reduce the impact of each foot strike and lower at the rear of the deck to promote a better push. All the cushioning elements are concealed by the side rail covers.
This RUNOW treadmill has a standard manual incline system similar to the Sunny Health & Fitness FA-7967. It consists of two folding feet attached to the rear corners of the deck. Needless to say, since the incline system requires manual adjustment, you cannot adjust it while running on the treadmill; you will have to pause your workout.
The unit’s incline system makes available three levels of incline. These are 0°, 2°, and 4°. With the incline at 0°, the height of the running platform is approx. 6″ (15 cm). This being said, you should place and use the machine in a room with a ceiling that is at least 10″ (25 cm) taller than your own height, or the height of the tallest user.
The RUNOW 3305EB is an electric treadmill. This being said, you will need to connect it to a power outlet in order to power up its console and set the belt in motion. It requires a 110 V power source and comes with a cable featuring a standard US plug. The cable connects to the front section of the deck where the motor is.
The machine is equipped with a 2.5 HP (peak power) motor. It’s not a super powerful motor but for a small home-use treadmill it should suffice. It should be able to provide decent performance for prolonged workouts (at least up to two hours) without losing performance or overheating. It also integrates a small flywheel for improved motion stability.
The unit’s motor offers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 8.1 MPH. The adjustment increments are 0.1 MPH so you can safely adapt your pace when you increase or decrease the speed. The console has controls for gradual speed adjustment, and also for quick speed adjustment, for 1.2 MPH (2 kmh), 2.5 MPH (4 kmh), 3.7 MPH (6 kmh), 5.6 MPH (8 kmh), 6.2 MPH (10 kmh), and 7.5 MPH (12 kmh). Controls for gradual speed adjustment are also integrated into the right handrail of the machine.
Last but not least, the machine’s motor is fairly quiet. Its maximum noise output is 60 dB. However, depending on your workout gear, running technique, weight, type of floor, and other factors, your cadence may generate more or less noise. So, it can definitely be heard when in use. But as a general idea, the noise of the motor should not cover the sound of a TV set on a moderate volume level.
As we’ve mentioned above, the RUNOW 3305EB electric folding treadmill is equipped with an LED display console. Its display is divided into three windows that indicate distance, time/calories, and speed/pulse. Speed and distance can be set either to imperial or metric units. The pulse reading function is grip only. In other words, you cannot sync the console with any wireless HR chest strap. In order for it to read your pulse, you will have to hold on to the sensors integrated into the machine’s handrails.
This treadmill does not have Bluetooth connectivity and is not compatible with any fitness app. However, it has a pretty decent program base to keep you motivated. To begin with, it has a manual mode which allows you to adjust the speed as you like during the workout.
Next, there are three workout modes that give you the possibility to select workout targets for time, distance, and calories burned. If a goal is selected, the display will count down from the selected target until it reaches zero. And finally, there are 36 pre-set programs built-in the console which have various segment layouts, for different types of workouts.
Although the console does not have a Bluetooth function, it does have a set of speakers. It also integrates a small shelf that can serve as support for your smartphone or tablet.
Assembly and Maintenance
The machine’s deck with the belt, rollers, incline elements, and motor, comes pre-assembled. Therefore, you only have to secure the two upright bars into position, attach the handrail system, and the console. This shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. All the tools are included and the manual provides clear assembly instructions.
Once the treadmill is assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. All you have to do is keep the machine clean, especially the belt, to prevent any textile fibers or other small objects from being caught in the motor. The belt also requires lubrication every few months with standard treadmill oil.
