Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill Review


Ok, Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill is under our lenses this time. We wish to look at whatNordic Track 6.5 S Treadmill Review makes this treadmill tick and also the downside. Ordinarily,  by the mention of ‘’Nordic’’ one will presume it has to a great piece of equipment, but nevertheless, we shall look at it closely to enable you to make a decision, whether to buy or not.

If your eyes are already on Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill, as a result, it is affordable or by any other reason, you may still look up other options such as the Sunny Health and Fitness Treadmill or Weslo Cadence G5.9 Treadmill. And no, we are not saying that Nordic Track T 6.5 Treadmill is not great but all we are saying is that you have options after all Nordic review has just begun.

Aside from the features and pros of any treadmill equipment the other factor that needs to be considered before making a purchase would be the cost. If the features/pros plus the cost is right for you, I guess a purchase will be made. So, without further waste of time let’s look at Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill to help you make a wise purchase.

The cost is averagely affordable I would say, but the features will really help you achieve your goal. How do you mean? You might ask. Now, these are the things you must look out for when considering to buy a treadmill; they are the frame, motor, cushioning, tread belt and the warranty. If you are very critical about these things and eventually find them ok then chances are the equipment is good.

Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill has a powerful motor with 2.6 HP with 25 years warranty. It is CHP model of a motor, which means it is the most durable and efficient type of motor. And by the way, the full meaning of ‘’CHP’’ is ‘’continuous duty rated horsepower’’.  That is to say, the motor is a pass mark except runners wouldn’t find it very helpful as the motor can only go 10 MPH maximum.

Let’s look at the frame. Any treadmill was either made from aluminum or steel but this was made from steel which is also a better material than aluminum. It supports 300 pounds of weight. That is to say, the steel is a pass mark!

 How about the Tread belt? This is fairly thick and ok in terms of durability. The dimension is 20’’ width by 55’’ long which is to say is also fairly good for runners because the 55’’ is the lowest or rather the shortest length recommended for runners.

Cushioning– Going by the rate at which the Nordic Track Treadmill is sold, the comfort they provide is considered to be great by the cushion system. Cushion system is such that provides the feeling of running on the outside pavement.  As a matter of fact, it has on/off the system by which you can choose to turn it on so that the deck is so cushioned and while is turned off the deck will be stiff while running or walking on it. It is activated by manually turning it on or off beneath the deck of the equipment.

What We Don’t Like about Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill

As usual with everything, there are one or two downsides to this piece of equipment and that would be the speed and the noise which has to do with the motor. Yes, the motor is CHP model but the horsepower is about 2.6 which is not too good especially for runners. This can only get you to run 10 MPH. So if you are a runner this equipment may not just be an option.

The other con is the motor making noise at some point in time. Some users have actually complained about this which could also defeat the idea of using an iPod for listening to music.

I had to come back and update this last downside of Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill. It actually has to do the with the Nordic Track administration rather. People have complained to us on one of our Facebook fan pages about how disappointing their customer service is. As a matter of fact, some even suggested that their technicians aren’t even efficient. So, I thought you should also know about this just in case.

  1. The Nordic Track t65s looks like a great treadmill for the price, I can see why you gave it 4 stars. I especially like that you can plug your ipod into it. Does it fold away for convenient storage?

  2. I am in the market for a new treadmill and I came across your review on the Nordic TrackT6.5 and found it very interesting. I really dig the fact that it has an iPod connection port because I run better when I have music playing.

    I know you said the Con is it only goes up to 10 mPh, I’m perfectly fine with that because I am not bolt what so ever 🙂 LOL!

    I’m going to talk to my better half on getting one and I will revisit your review if I get the green light!

    Thank you for a great review and helping me make a decision.

    1. Hello Jaime,

      Thanks for the visit and I hope your better half will give the green light, lol. Anyways, if you are ok with the pros and cons and I guess the green light is already given.

  3. You’ve certainly done the product justice with your review. Concise, and to the point. That is what I like. One of the cons is not so much of a con for many, namely that it only gets up to 10mph. I think most would only want this device for jogging purposes, so I wouldn’t envision any issues with that. However, is this product available in the UK?

    1. Thank you Tony for looking up our website. As for the cons you said was not a problem, yes, it is not but there are some people that may be disappointed if it doesnt get further that 10 MPH especially runners. But is it generally ok for individual whose goal is to keep fit and lose weight.

      To answer your question about the availability for U.K consumers, well I am sorry that this very model is not available but there are other models you might want to check out here.

      Thanks again for checking in.

  4. Hello Nnamdi,

    I truly appreciate the fact that you address other criteria to look out for when looking to buy a treadmill i.e., frame, motor, cushioning, tread belt and the warranty.

    Some people may just look for treadmills to buy armed with a certain budget, ignoring their needs and how the treadmill can actually serve those needs.

    Seems that the Nordic 6.5 is suited for people like me because I’m not a jogger nor a runner. I’m a brisk walker so the treadmill’s power would suit me fine.

    Thanks Nnamdi for this comprehensive guide on the model!

    1. That’s right Zailinah, you don’t have to look at the budget alone when looking to buy a treadmill, you must also look at the major components that make the equipment tick otherwise you may end up buying crap.

    Nnamdi, I especially love that I can choose to have a cushioned run on this treadmill. This is great for people with old sports injury like myself and so I appreciate that you pointed this out in your review. I also love the IPod feature. Very helpful review. Thanks.
