The Horizon T6 Treadmill – Great Specs, Nice Design

The Horizon T6 treadmill goes big on features – a large motor, 15% incline, and 400-lb user weight limit – and leaves off the frills. It is a good choice for runners & serious walkers looking for substance over entertainment features.

The Machine

The Buzz

UPDATE: The Horizon T6 treadmill has been phased out.  Take a look at the latest Horizon treadmills to find a comparable model.  

The Horizon T6 treadmill is a non-folding model powered by a quiet 3.0 CHP motor and features a 2.2mm orthopedic belt, a 20" x 60" running area, speed range of .5 to 12 mph in 0.1 mph increments, and a thick elastomer cushioning system.

Reviews like how the treadmill stores training logs for up to two users – right on the machine, so you don’t have to download anything to a USB flash drive and transfer it to a computer, or sign up for an online membership. The Horizon T6 records monthly and lifetime mileage goals for up to 100 workouts, as well as calories and average pace. If you like a handy log of your training progress, you will like how the T6 does it for you.

What We Say

The Horizon T6 is $2,199 with great specs and a nice design, although it has an oddly weak parts and labor warranty for a machine this pricey. As Horizon’s best home model we would like to see it backed with something like a 5-year parts, 2-year home servicing warranty; otherwise, you will have to purchase extended coverage which will add to the overall price.

The Horizon T6 treadmill is a nice machine for performance training, but the value slips because of the warranty. (As a comparison, Smooth Fitness offers a lifetime parts & motor warranty on its 9.65LC model, also priced at $2,199.) If Horizon could only improve the warranty, then it could start to compete with the leaders at this price, such as Smooth, Sole, Lifespan, and Precor treadmills.
