On Amazon it costs a friendly Check Price - $$ dollars which isn’t expensive enough to burn a hole through your pocket. But let’s dedicate the space of this article in exploring the features that the SF-T4400 model brings with it in order to see if the treadmill is worth occupying space in your home or not.

Dimensions

When assembled, the treadmill has dimensions measuring in length, width, and height of 62 x 27 x 50 inches respectively. It also comes with a folding mechanism and soft drop system to guarantee that it can fold it and unravel gently. Its folding dimensions measure up to 34.5 inches of length, 27 inches of width, and a height of 58 inches. You can easily tuck it away once you are done with your workout with the aid of its built-in wheels that’ll help you roll the treadmill to and from where you put it when you’re not exercising. Not a biggie, right?

The running surface stands at a generous 48.82 x 15.75 inches which is pretty broad even for those who occupy more space and have large strides to easily continue with their workout without having to narrow down the angle of their legs to make it fit between the moving conveyer belt.

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T4400 weighs 103 pounds but can only support weight capacity for up to 220 pounds which is lesser than other models.

Features

The LCD display that comes installed on the control panel is pretty large and provides 9 pre-configured workout programs that have been installed in accordance with the workout regimes set by physical trainers. In fact, with the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T4400 model you’ll feel as if you’re not only working out on the treadmill but also being guided by a fitness trainer who’ll help you achieve those fitness and body goals that you so deeply aspire towards. The LCD itself measures elapsed time, covered distance, number of calories burned, and pulse rate. The control panel also has a speed option between 0.5 mph to 9 mph. In fact, with the buttons on the panel, you can increase or decrease the speed in increments of 0.1 mph to suit the intensity of the workout. It also provides 3 quick speed modes that can be operated by 3 ‘easy, quick speed’ buttons that include the walk, jog, and run feature. Using these buttons you can instantaneously set the difficulty level of your workout. A safety key featured on the control panel also ensures that the treadmill will stop if the key is unplugged and will thus protect you from potential accidents. The treadmill also has a manual mode and power saving functions.

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T4400 model also has three incline options that can be manually adjusted towards incline angles of 0%, 2%, and 4.37%. This personalizes your workout experience and ensures you can yourself adjust the incline and therefore vary the intensity of your workout session. It has to be noted however that the treadmill will need to be lubricated before you adjust the inclines since the newness of the product means that its joints will be a bit tight and creaky at first.

With the latest technology, this treadmill comes with hand rail control settings that are pretty user-friendly and are present right at your fingertips. With these settings, you can stop, start, and increase or decrease speed by operating the handles.

Hardware

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T4400 treadmill is solidly built with steel frame construction and uses a 2.25 HP battery to help power it. It also offers shock absorption feature that’ll absorb the impact of your steps and help cushion your weight and ease your muscles and joints from feeling sore.

Pros

  • Nine pre-set workout programs is quite a lot of options for a budget friendly treadmill
  • Good LCD and features
  • Three easy, quick speed buttons to vary intensity
  • Three manually adjustable incline modes
  • Handlebar controls
  • Safety key

Cons

  • Weight capacity of 220 pounds is a little underwhelming. For people close to 200 pounds, using this treadmill MAY prove to be problematic in the future as the running belt could be subject to wear and tear after overuse.
  • A maximum speed of 9 mph is slow for those who are seeking to use this treadmill for high intensity workouts.

Verdict

For its low price but generally high number of features, the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T4400 treadmill can be pitted against the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 model and a great number of users might even prefer it to the popular Weslo. As an all-round piece of exercising equipment, the SF-T4400 model does a pretty good job at giving you a good bargain for the money you’ve paid for it. We, personally, would also pit this treadmill as highly recommendable if you’re looking to stock your home, office, or personal gym with a reliable exercising machine. The only area where it pales is its relatively lower weight capacity, but if you fit within its working capacity then we highly suggest you to give this model of Sunny a go.
