UREVO URTM005 Folding Treadmill | Soft-Drop Hydraulic Mechanism

The UREVO URTM005 Folding Treadmill has a soft-drop hydraulic mechanism, a great feature that allows the deck to gently lower itself to the floor. The soft drop hydraulic mechanism assures safe, hands-free unfolding. In addition, a 17-inch wide multi-layered tread belt and world-first whole machine anti-shock system can withstand a maximum weight of 265 pounds (120 kg).

The URTM005 features a light-commercial 3.0 HP DC Smart Motor with good stability and durability. Furthermore, this UREVO treadmill can provide a steady running experience at prolonged speeds of 0.5 – 8.5 MPH with silent bearing noise. In addition, you can conveniently adjust the speed you want with the built-in handrail controls.

A large area of running surface, 41L x 17W inches (104L x 43W cm), with the multi-layer 15 mm thick running belt can absorb vibration for a better running experience while helping to protect your knees and prevent injuries. In addition, the UREVO URTM005 folding treadmill comes equipped with a 3-position manual incline ( 1%, 3%, 4.5 %) to improve the effect of aerobic training.

URTM005 Frame construction

UREVO URTM005 Folding Treadmill

The UREVO URTM005 treadmill features a steel tubing frame. The base tubes are rectangular, the two upright bars that support the console are oval, while the two side handrails are cylindrical and have a thick layer of PVC foam for an improved grip. All the steel parts in the machine’s construction come with a durable black paint finish, with the “UREVO” logo orange.

The treadmill integrates several plastic parts as well. The most notable ones are the motor cover, the covers of the side rails, and the console dashboard. These are a rigid thermoplastic material, also black, to fit the color theme of the machine.

It is approx. 55″ (140 cm) long and 29″ (74 cm) wide, while the top of the console reaches approx. 50″ (127 cm) above the floor level. But even though it’s not a giant treadmill, it is advisable to allow at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck and at its rear for safe usage.

The machine is foldable. The deck can fold up, which is quite a plus because you can save some space when the treadmill is not in use, but it also offers the possibility to clean underneath it easily. The folding mechanism uses a hydraulic cylinder which safely lowers the deck when unfolding it.

One last aspect to note regards the unit’s weight. This UREVO treadmill has a net weight of 81.5 lbs (37 kg). Therefore, two people should transport and assemble the treadmill. But once completed, one person can quickly move the treadmill as its front base frame has transport wheels.

Deck construction

The UREVO URTM005 folding treadmill is small, but it has a pretty sturdy running platform. In addition, it has a maximum user weight limit of 265 lbs (120 kg) which is not bad for a home-use machine.

The treadmill’s running platform has some cushioning. It features three shock absorption elements on each side. One pair is more extensive and placed in the middle of the deck. The other two pairs are smaller and placed closer to the front and rear of the deck. The internal deck board also has a bit of flex which adds to the overall shock absorption properties of the machine’s running platform.

Since it’s a small treadmill, the URTM005 doesn’t offer a super sizeable active area. Its running surface is only 41L x 17W inches (104L x 43W cm). Therefore, it comfortably accommodates users up to 5’7″ – 5’8″ (170 – 173 cm) for running. Taller users may not benefit from a complete range of motion for running, but they should be able to use this treadmill with no problem walking.

The machine comes with a 6-layer belt featuring a textured, rubberized top layer for improved contact. The second layer is to reduce noise, while the mid-layers improve the belt’s structural strength. And finally, the bottom layer is the compression layer and has a unique texture that enables it to stick better to the rollers.

The exact diameter of the rollers is not specified. But as a general idea, they’re not too thick since it’s a light-capacity treadmill made for home use. In addition, the rollers have a crowned finish, which improves traction and prolongs the belt’s life. Furthermore, they also integrate high-grade ball bearings for smooth motion.

URTM005 Incline system

The UREVO URTM005 comes equipped with a manual incline system. Unfortunately, you cannot adjust the incline while actively using the treadmill. Instead, you have to pause your workout and step off the machine.

The console programs also do not adjust the incline. Furthermore, the calorie reading also does not adapt to a workout with an incline, even though you will burn more calories if exercising with an incline.

The unit’s incline system is pretty simple. It’s similar to the one of the SereneLife SLFTRD25. It consists of two metallic folding feet connected to the rear section of the running platform. Each foot has three adjustment holes. To adjust, you remove and re-inserting the pull-pins in the desired positions.

It’s essential to note that the machine’s deck does not have a perfectly horizontal position. With the pins inserted into the lowest holes of the adjustable feet, the machine’s active area has approximately an incline of 1%. The other two incline increments are 3% and 4.5%.

Drive motor

UREVO URTM005 Folding Treadmill

The UREVO URTM005 folding treadmill is a motorized treadmill. For instance, you will need to connect it to an electrical outlet to power up the console and adjust the speed of the belt. A power cord with a standard U.S. plug comes with the machine. The power cord connects in the front of the machine, next to an ON/OFF switch.

The machine comes equipped with a 3.0 HP DC motor. Although it is not as powerful as the motors of the commercial-grade machines, it still provides excellent performance for walking and jogging. In addition, it also integrates a small flywheel for motion stability.

The motor offers a speed range between 0.5 MPH and 8.5 MPH. In addition, the speed adjusts in increments of 0.1 MPH. Therefore, you can quickly adapt your pace to the speed adjustments.

There are speed controls for gradual and quick adjustment on the console and integrated into the right handrail. When pressed, the +/- keys adjust the speed in increments of 0.1 MPH. The preset speed adjustment buttons allow selecting 3 MPH or 6 MPH.

The motor does not generate too much noise at the highest speed. However, you may make noise when using the machine depending on weight, running gear, running technique, floor type, and other factors.

URTM005 Console

The UREVO URTM005 folding treadmill comes equipped with a pretty standard console. In addition, it features an LCD that tracks the most crucial workout metrics, including time, speed, distance, calories, and pulse.

In addition, it does not have a pace count feature. Unfortunately, the pulse reading function is hand-grip only. Therefore, the console can only track your pulse if you hold on to the HR pulse sensors integrated into the machine’s handrails. You cannot sync it with a wireless HR chest strap.

The console has 12 preset onboard programs. Each one of them has a segment layout engraved on the console. Some have an interval layout, others have a random arrangement, and others help burn more calories. You can select the desired workout program by repeatedly pressing the console’s program button.

In addition, the console also has a workout goal function. It allows selecting a workout target for time, distance, or calories burned. After choosing a goal, the console will count down from the desired value until it reaches zero.

Since it’s a pretty simple treadmill, the UREVO URTM005 does not have features such as speakers and Bluetooth connectivity and is not compatible with any fitness apps.

In particular, its dashboard has two accessory trays, while the bottom of the console features a small shelf that can support your tablet or phone. However, you cannot connect your device to the console.

URTM005 Assembly and Maintenance

The machine’s deck with the belt, motor, rollers, and other parts, comes pre-assembled. Therefore, you only have to attach the two upright bars and the console with the handrails.

Consequently, it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes of your time. The included manual provides clear assembly instructions, and all the necessary tools come with the machine.

For maintenance, similar to other treadmills, the deck requires periodic lubrication. The manual provides instructions for this as well. You should also keep the machine clean, periodically check for loose bolts and parts, and retighten them when needed.

  1. We had a treadmill for many years before it finally gave out.  It was heavy and took up a great deal of space in the garage.  This one seems to be a more reasonable size.  One of us could move the machine from place to place.  Although it would be nice to have an auto incline, I am not worried about getting off the device to adjust the incline.  It might be a good choice because it is a more lightweight machine.  There will be no running on it.  Thanks for the info.

  2. Thank you very much for this valuable detailed UREVO URTM005 Folding Treadmill review. I like treadmills. Because I don’t enjoy jogging on the road, this is a perfect treadmill. It has a multi-window console display. It can take care of everything, including pulse. That is very important. And it has 12 workout programs.
