Tagged Under : , ,

Today we’re going to figure out who’s the better treadmill between the Yowza Siesta and the Sole F63.

The Yowza Siesta and the Sole F63 are both at the bottom of the price line in their brands. Both are on sale price for $999 so let’s check out their specs and quality shall we?

We’ll start with the motors. Yowza has earned quick respect from the treadmill world for their quality motors. They have great reviews all over the web. The Motor of the Yowza Siesta is 2.5 CHP and it runs smooth and quiet. Although it’s small, the quality is great. The Sole F63 motor is not far behind. Sole motors are also well known for their quality and performance. The only downside of these motors are their size. It not uncommon to find 3.0 CHP motors at this price, so while they may be good, it’s hard to settle on a smaller motor than what you know is available.

The Sole exceeds the Yowza in strength of deck and frame. The Yowza has a specified weight capacity of 300 lbs, while the Sole has a weight capacity of 325 lbs. It’s not a big difference, but actually in the feel of the two, the extra strength in the sole is more apparent. Unit weight doesn’t always mean extra strength, but it can. In this case, the Sole weighs about 50 lbs more than the Yowza. The deck of the yowza rests on rubber cushion rings which help reduce impact. It also utilizes Yowza’s patented swing arm technology to reduce impact even more. The cushioning on the smooth is good, but doesn’t quite match up to the Yowza.

The Sole’s 2-ply belt is a bit sturdier than the Yowza’s. The belt glides sweetly across the deck quietly like ice. The Yowza also has a 2-ply treadbelt, and both have a 20″ x 55″ running area. The frames are mostly made of steel which keeps them strong and rattle free. Both treadmills have a few different workout programs built in. The screens are both small blue LCD screens. Neither have any sort of Ifit or progress tracking technology.

Here’s a little comparison table:

Well, this is a tough choice. These two seem like a tie from this review. With their different strengths and weaknesses, it’s a bit subjective to choose a winner. However in my opinion, the Sole F63 would be my pick. I would rather have Sole for my customer service, and the treadmill has years of excellent reviews where the durability of the Yowza is yet to be seen. I will include both coupon links here, but I choose the Sole F63 to move on to the next round toward the best buys.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
