Understanding How the Components of a Proform Treadmill Are Attached
Disassembling a treadmill is a time-consuming job because it has many parts and components attached to each other. There are lots of screws on each component. Manufacturers assemble them in the best possible secure way to ensure no accident occurs when someone is running on the belt.
Generally, a treadmill has a console, handrail, walking belt, walking platform, and foot rail.
The walking belt and walking platform are attached together. On the other hand, the walking platform is attached to the handrail, and rises perpendicular with the help of base mounts, which is also attached to the walking platform.
