Hello Polly,

I have and use a DKN EcoRun which cost £500 two years ago. This replaced a Reebok which broke down far too soon and was irreparable. The best advise I can give you is to look at a few review sites. This will give you information on what features you need, and what you get for your budget, which is a major consideration. If you go for a cheap one, make sure the motor is large enough and has a good guarantee.

The particular site I used is treadmill-running-machine-r... and I found this to be very good and reliable.

I am very happy with my choice of treadmill too.

Kind regards,

Eric.

PollyP, I have just submitted a post entitled "Treadmill" as I thought that others who have not considered one may benefit from some further information on them.

Good luck with yours.

Eric.
