Weight Limit Rating of the Welso Cadence G 5.9 treadmill

by Jack on February 28, 2016

What is the weight limit or capacity of the Welso Cadence G 5.9 treadmill? Are there any other treadmills in the same price range with a higher weight limit?

This model has a 275 lbs. weight capacity.

If you want to see this answer for yourself you can find it here. It’s on page 3 of the user manual under the precautions section. It would probably be wise to read over the entire set of important precautions listed on this page.

A 275 pound limit – what does it mean?

Exactly what does a 275 weight limit mean? This is a safety rating all treadmill companies use to rate the maximum user weight a specific model can support for exercise.

As you can imagine, the “effective weight” of any individual is greater when running vs. when walking. The weight capacities of treadmills are based on running.

Meaning the Welso Cadence G 5.9 treadmill can support a 275 pound person running.

If you are currently trying to decide whether or not this is the right home treadmill choice for you, read our review to see how we rate it.

Comparing weight capacities

Considering the affordable price of the Welso G 5.9 model the weight capacity of 275 lbs isn’t bad. Below are two lists. The first shows similarly priced models and their weigh capacities and the second shows models that are a bit more expensive but still very affordable.

Ancheer Running Folding Treadmill Exercise Machine – 300 lbs
Confidence GTR Power Pro – 250 lbs
Merit Fitness 715T Plus Treadmill – 250 lbs.
Sunny Fitness and health – 220 lbs

Compared to more expensive models

ProForm 505 CST Treadmill – 300 lbs
ProForm 6.0 RT Treadmill – 300 lbs
Gym 420 Treadmill – 300 lbs
Phoenix 98836 Easy Up Motorized Treadmill – 250 lbs

The models listed above don’t encompass everything available on the market. These we choose to list these because we think all are decent quality vs. price.

What you should notice between the two lists is the slightly higher priced models on average do provide slightly higher weight capacities but the capacities are very close when comparing the models on both lists.

Weight capacity may be a very important

For some buyers the weight capacity rating of a treadmill may be a very important factor in their decision making. If you are a heavier person you should definitely make sure to check the rating before buying.

However, for most people this rating shouldn’t be a huge factor. So while it is important to know, this doesn’t mean it’s the number #1 factor to use to judge the quality of any model on. Meaning a treadmill with a 300 lbs capacity isn’t necessarily higher quality overall compared to a model with a 250 lbs. capacity.

The best way to judge the quality of any model is to review the

  • Motor
  • Frame
  • Tread belt
  • Cushion System
  • Warranty

But how do you judge the quality of these core features? If you are currently looking for good but cheap home treadmill this guide will provide you with information and tips on how to best judge the core features mentioned above.
