BH Fitness iF2W Treadmill arrived with European 2 pin plug instead of UK 3 pin plug

I have been sold a BH Fitness Treadmill model i F2W and it arrived with a European 2 pin hard wired plug. I live in the UK and electric sockets require 3 pin plugs. They sent an adaptor to put onto the plug which will convert it into a 3 pin plug, and it has a 5 amp fuse. The Hard wire plug has "10/16 A" written on it, which I take to mean 10 to 16 amps. The instruction booklet says "Do not use an Adaptor with this appliance". The UK representative says the Spanish Manufactures mean "an extension lead" but the word adaptor is also used in an American Booklet. Is it safe to use this conversation adaptor with a 2.75 HP motor Treadmill. Is the 5 amp fuse the right one to use on a plug which has 10/16 A written on it. Have you heard of anyone else in the UK being sold a Spanish Treadmill with a two pin plug instead of the normal UK plug.
