If you are in the market for a folding treadmill that is both durable and reliable, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 and the Sole F85 are two top 5-star rated models equipped with a folding design and spacious running areas. These models don’t compromise quality for convenience with well-built decks that offer plenty of support and cushioning for running, walking or jogging. And while the F85 does have a slightly more powerful 4.0 continuous HP motor, the Commercial 1750 isn’t far behind with a 3.6 continuous HP motor. These are powerful motors, especially for a folding frame machine, so you can be confident in the durability and life of either of these machines.

One attractive feature that the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 offers that the Sole F85 does not is a decline option of -3%. This feature is ideal for runners or walkers, simulating varying terrain and working the muscles of the lower body, so if this is a feature that’s on your wish list the Commercial 1750 might be a better fit for you. Looking at the console area, the Sole F85 offers a larger display screen with a large 9″ LCD display, versus the 7″ of the Commercial 1750; however, the Commercial 1750 offers internet connectivity and more programs at 38 options versus the 7 options of the F85. In the end, it really comes down to personal preference as to which machine would be the best fit for you and your needs. If you are more of a tech savvy person who wants a web-enabled console, the Commercial 1750 is a smart option, and if you are in the market for a machine with a more powerful motor and larger display screen, the Sole F85 might work out better.
