Before commencing the review it is worthwhile pausing to offer an explanation as to what the different model names in the Landice range mean.

We know that this has caused some confusion in the past so the following is an overview of the Landice range to enable you to decide which Landice Light Commercial or Full Commercial exercise treadmill will meet your needs.

Landice Range - Model differences

The only difference between a Pro Sports Trainer, Cardio Trainer and Executive Trainer is the display. The Pro Sports Trainer has a basic display, while the Executive has an "amazing" display.

The difference between the L7, L8 and L9 treadmills is the rollers and deck length. They get heavier and more durable as you go up, and the running surface gets longer.

The L7’s are available in the LTD (Light Commercial) and Club (Full Commercial) versions.

The L8’s are available in the LTD (Light Commercial) version only.

The L9’s are available in the Club (Full Commercial) version only.

This model offers a color, dot-matrix motivational display. Built-in programs, user defined fitness programs, and wireless interactive heart-rate control make this machine a must have.
