The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7603 Electric Treadmill is an extremely popular treadmill due to the fact that it is extremely low priced making it suitable for those people on a budget.
This treadmill has a soft drop folding system, which makes it easy to fold up to store out of the way when not in use and easy to open back up when you are ready to workout. This Treadmill uses a 2.2 Hp DC motor, which is mainly designed for walking and light jogging. The belt has some cushioning, which makes it easier on the knee and ankle joints when using.
However, the actually running surface on this treadmill is shorter and quite narrow making it difficult for running on, especially for people who have long strides. It also comes with handrail controls. While we do not consider this treadmill to be top of the line especially for runners, we do find that it is a nice machine for those people who want to get a little exercise or are just beginning a fitness routine. We find the warranty on this treadmill almost non-existent.
This treadmill is only able to go between 5 and 9 mph making it possible for be used for speed walking and jogging purposes. Shorter users may be able to run using this treadmill, but the small running surface make it difficult if not impossible for taller people to run flat out on this machine.
This Treadmill does offer 3 manual incline levels totally less than a 10% incline
The running surface on this treadmill also proves that this treadmill is not designed for running as the surface is both narrow and short measuring 16 inches wide and only 49 inches long.

The computer console for this treadmill is a pretty basic computer and is capable of measuring speed, time, distance, pulse and calories burned and miles run. The computer is back lit making it easy for you to read the information while using the treadmill.
This Treadmill is relatively comfortable. It is fairly sturdy and doesn’t shake when being used. It runs quietly, has a cup holder, and a cushioned belt. However, the belt is a little more narrow and shorter than most treadmills, which means you need to measure your steps when using this treadmill.
The warranty on this electric treadmill is almost non-existent with only a 90 day warranty. The short warranty is somewhat disappointing.

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7603 Electric Treadmill Reviews from users
Reviews for this treadmill are overall good. Users find that this treadmill is easy to set up and get up and running. They like that it is designed for people with limited space making it able to be used in homes where other treadmills may be too large.
Users like that this treadmill speeds up and slows down quickly making it easier to use. It runs quietly and is well built and compact and comfortable to use.
There are only a few complaints regarding this treadmill. One of the complaints is regarding the narrow belt on this treadmill, which seems a bit unfair considering the fact that that buyers are made aware of the width of the belt prior to purchase. Perhaps consumers don’t realize just how narrow the belt is compared to models with 20 inch or 24 inch wide treadmills.
Another Complaint is that you can’t adjust the incline levels while you are walking or jogging, you actually have to get off the treadmill and adjust the treadmill manually.
In addition, Some users find that this treadmill breaks down after only a few users or fails to work from the start. Since the warranty is severely limited it only makes sense that you want to check out this treadmill as soon as you get it home.
Overall, this Sunny Health treadmill is a good treadmill for those people on a strict budget that wants to get some exercises at home. It is affordable and works fairly well for walking and light jogging, While its lower weight capacity and narrow and short running area makes this less suited for those who have longer strides or who weigh more than this treadmill is designed for, it is worth considering for those beginning to work out, older people who want to get some in low impact walking, or those with limited space and want to get in some type of workout at home.
