Avanti XFit-2 treadmill console = Greenmaster 832?
Does anyone have a user manual for the console of the Greenmaster 832
I've recently purchased an Avanti Fitness XFit-2 treadmill:
This is an enlarged image:
The unit was delivered with a user manual which shows the same frame
and mechanical parts. However, the console depicted in the manual is a
different type with dual LCD displays and possible additional
features. It looks very similar to this one, except that the hand
controls (?) are different:
The manual does not discuss this console or any other console, nor
does it have a specifications page to confirm the claimed rating of
the motor, or the electrical specs of the machine. The only
instructions for the actual console are three miserable photocopied
pages. The illustration on these photocopies is of an "832" console,
possibly a Greenmaster 832.
It looks just like this one, only the badge is different:
My supplier (Workout World) has not been forthcoming with a proper
manual, and Avanti Fitness do not have a web presence. Needless to say
I'm very annoyed at having paid $2K for a product whose user manual
consists of three scraps of paper depicting a different product.
Having said that, most of the functions are self explanatory. The only
real difficulty is in clearing the user programs (P8,P9,P10). Does
anyone have the user manual for a Greenmaster 832 with this
I'm also suspicious of the claimed motor rating for the XFit-2. I
suspect it may really be a 2.5HP motor, as is the Smooth 7.1 depicted
The way I see it, a rating of 3HP = 3 x 746 = 2238 watts. This equates
to 9.325A at 240VAC. The rating plate indicates only 8A at 240VAC.
This is just marginally more than 2.5HP. Could it be that the motor
really is a 3HP unit with the treadmill being designed so that the
motor never operates at its full rating???
