What most people don’t realise is that treadmills, like all mechanical equipment, need regular maintenance. One of the most important parts of the treadmill is the belt. The belt of any treadmill needs regular attention and lubrication to keep it in good working order and to prolong the life of the equipment.
A good treadmill lubricant will help keep you and your machine happy.
The lubricant oil helps to prevent wear and tear on the treadmill belt, which keeps it not only operating slickly, but also helps to prevent long term damage to the equipment.
Treadmill lubricant is very cost effective when you consider the expense involved in buying a new piece of equipment, or replacement parts should the treadmill become damaged through neglect.
Without lubrication, your treadmill will not last its intended life time. The mechanical parts will become worn and naturally this leads to parts breaking or ceasing to function correctly.
There are different types of treadmill lubrication on the market, and the ideal lubricant for your kit should be marked in the manual of your equipment. A small number of treadmills don’t need to be lubricated so make sure you adhere to the supplier recommendations. You can buy oils or waxes so make sure you get the right lubricant for your treadmill!
The treadmill belt is one of the most important parts of the machine as it takes a lot of stress and pressure when the equipment is used, especially if you use it on a regular basis – if you don’t lube it you could end up losing it! If you aren’t sure where to get your treadmill lubricant you can either buy it online at selected resellers or you should be able to buy it from the store where you purchased your treadmill equipment.
