Both the Xterra TR150 and TR300 Treadmills offer great value for money and are ideal for keeping fit in the comfort of your own home.

The Xterra Fitness TR300 is the higher-end treadmill over the TR300, offering extra features along with a more durable design and larger footprint, making it suitable for heavier use and a longer stride length, whereas the entry-level TR150 takes up less space and is ideal for beginners.

The Xterra TR300’s running deck measures a generous 55” long by 20” wide compared to the smaller TR150’s running deck of 50” long by 16”.  Both treadmill decks feature XTRAsoft cushioning to absorb the impact for a more comfortable workout.  The TR300 features a more heavy-duty 2.0-ply Duraweave belt compared to the TR150’s 1-ply belt.

Both the Xterra Fitness TR150 and TR300 electric-powered Treadmills utilize a high-torque 2.5 HP motor and offer speeds up to 10 mph, allowing you to walk, jog or run at your own pace.

Both treadmills offer incline options for additional challenge, but the TR150 is manually operated (i.e. you have to stop your workout to manually adjust the incline) and only offers 3 low incline settings of 0.5%, 1% or 2%, whereas the TR300 offers 10 incline levels which are electronically controlled at a touch of a button either on the console or on the handrails.

To keep your workouts varied, the Xterra TR150 and TR300 Treadmills offer a range of preset programs, with the TR300 offering twice as many as the TR150 – 24 programs on the TR300 compared to 12 programs on the TR150, along with a Manual option so you can just get on and get going!

The Xterra TR300 Treadmill’s console is more advanced than the TR150 – it features a 5.5” blue backlit LCD display screen for easy viewing compared to the TR150’s 5” LCD display that isn’t backlit.  Both the TR300 and TR150 display motivating workout stats as you exercise including time, speed, distance, calories burned and pulse heart-rate.

Your pulse heart-rate is measured by both Xterra treadmills via the hand pulse grip sensors built into the handrails.  The TR300 also has the addition of remote control buttons in the handrails for quick adjusting of speed and incline levels which the TR150 doesn’t have.

Additional features on both the Xterra TR150 and TR300 treadmills’ console include an integrated media tray, two accessory holders and a safety key.  Extra features included on the Xterra TR300’s console that the TR150 does not have include a sound system (audio jack and speakers) and a cooling fan.

Both the Xterra Fitness TR150 and TR300 treadmills feature a folding deck design to help save space when not in use.  However, the design of the folding deck system differs between the two treadmills – the TR150’s deck has to be manually folded, while the TR300’s deck features Lift Assist and Soft Drop for safe and easy folding and lowering of the deck.

Both the Xterra TR150 and TR300 treadmills are sturdily constructed.  But with its more durable build and larger footprint (see full dimensions listed in the table below), the Xterra TR300 offers a slightly higher user weight capacity of up to 300 lbs compared to the TR150’s 250 lbs user weight limit.

For peace of mind, both Xterra Fitness Treadmills come with a generous manufacturer’s warranty but as you would expect, the warranty differs between the entry-level TR150 and the higher-classed TR300 (see full details listed in the comparison table below).





Let’s take a glance at the main differences and similarities between the Xterra TR150 and TR300’s features and specifications laid out in the easy to read table below to help you decide on which is the best treadmill for you:
