SF-T7718 Frame & deck
The Sunny SF-T7718 folding treadmill features a space-saving design with a fold-flat frame, which you can store in narrow spaces. In addition, the console mast with the side grips folds down over the deck, resulting in an overall height for the folded unit of 7.25″ (18.5 cm). Therefore, you can store it under your bed if there is a clearance over 7.5″ (19 cm).
Its folded footprint remains approx. 62″L x 29.5″W (157.5 x 75 cm). Therefore, you can also store it vertically. In addition, its front base features two small bars with transport wheels that facilitate the unit’s relocation and serve as vertical stabilizers.
With the frame in the usable position, the unit’s footprint measures approximately 63″L x 29.5″W (160 x 75 cm), while its highest point reaches approx—48″ (122 cm) to the top of the tablet holder.
The Sunny SF-T7718 treadmill features a steel frame. However, it has ABS covers for the console masts, motor, and side rails, for a more aesthetic aspect.
Although it is a light-capacity treadmill, it isn’t exactly lightweight. Its net weight is approx. 117 lbs (53 kg) that provide plenty of stability. Furthermore, its rear part features a set of adjustable levelers, while its front section rests on rubber pads.
The machine’s deck is durable for a light-capacity treadmill with a maximum user weight limit of 250 lbs (113 kg). It also integrates two shock absorption elements, one on each side. They provide higher protection for your joints than a walk or a jog on an asphalt or concrete surface.
The belt offers a walking surface of 46″L x 20″W (117 x 51 cm), which is an optimal surface for walking and jogging. Unfortunately, users taller than 6’0″ (183 cm) may find it a bit short for running. Therefore, this machine is in the walking/jogging treadmill category. Moreover, most running treadmills have a belt at least 60″ (152 cm) long.
Unfortunately, this Sunny treadmill does not have an incline system. However, its walking surface has a low profile. Its step-up height is only approx—3″ (8 cm). Therefore, you won’t have to worry about hitting the ceiling when using the machine.
The Sunny SF-T7718 folding treadmill is an electric treadmill. Thus, it requires a connection to a power circuit. It integrates a 2.5 HP Peak Power / 1.25 CHP drive motor that is more than enough for walking or jogging workouts. In addition, it will support any user up to 250 lbs (113 kg), for prolonged exercising routines, without overheating or losing performance.
This drive motor delivers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 9.0 MPH (.97 – 14.5 kph). The speed is adjustable only from the console. There are +/- keys for gradual speed adjustment on the right side and quick speed controls for the 3 MPH and 6 MPH on the left side.
The speed increments are 0.1 MPH. Therefore, it allows you to find the perfect speed for your height and workout intensity. Moreover, the speed of the belt adjusts gradually and smoothly, without sudden jerking, allowing you to adjust your stride and pace with ease and safely.
There are two more aspects to note. One regards the level of noise generated and power consumption. The machine’s motor is far from being loud, and depending on your running style, your cadence will create some noise. Furthermore, you barely hear it during a walking workout.
However, if running at full speed, your rhythm will become louder, but it’s not loud enough to cover your TV’s sound on a moderate volume setting.
The second and last aspect regards power consumption. The drive motor is not super strong; therefore, you won’t have to worry about high electricity bills even if you use the machine daily.
The Sunny SF-T7718 folding treadmill console is a simplified version of the ASUNA SpaceFlex 7750. It features a LED display that divides into three separate windows. The left window indicates distance and calories burned, the middle window shows time elapsed and step count, and the right window displays speed and pulse.
For speed and distance, there are only Imperial units available (MPH and miles). The console is not telemetric; therefore, it cannot read your pulse via a Polar HR chest strap. However, it has a contact sensor on the right side, so by pressing your finger against it, you can still benefit from a heart rate pulse reading.
Goal settings are available for time, distance, and calories burned. After choosing a goal, the console will begin to countdown from that value until it reaches zero. In addition, you can set up limits to break for each one of your workouts.
In terms of programs, the console offers nine preset ones, from P1 to P9. They’re interval-based programs, each alternating different speed settings throughout its duration. In addition, each program has ten intervals. So, for instance, you can select a total time for each program, and each interval will last a 1/10th of that chosen duration.
Consequently, the starting speed for each program is either 1.2 MPH or 1.8 MPH. Finally, before the start of each interval, the console will beep to notify you about the speed change.
The SF-T7718 console has an integrated Bluetooth connection. Therefore, you can sync it with your phone or tablet to access the all-new free SunnyFit app for online tracking of your workout data. In addition, a USB port is also available. Unfortunately, this only serves as a docking port for recharging your phone or tablet.
And last, the console features a sound system and a tablet holder. The sound system consists of two small speakers under the console. An MP3 cable comes with the machine, which you can use to connect your phone or tablet and play your music through the console speakers.
The tablet holder is at the top of the console. It has a non-slip element to prevent your phone or tablet from falling. In addition, it’s also foldable, providing better storage possibilities for the whole machine.
SF-T7718 Assembly & Maintenance
The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 treadmill comes fully assembled. All you need to do is unfold it, plug it in, attach the magnetic safety key, and you’re ready to go. However, before the first use, it’s necessary to lubricate the belt with the included silicone lubricant.
For maintenance, the belt should be kept clean. It would be best if you wiped off any small objects, dust, sand, or textile fibers before each use to prevent any damage to the motor. Of course, the belt requires periodic lubrication. Furthermore, the console has a lubrication reminder which will prompt you to re-lubricate it after every 188 miles traveled.
