SCAM - Some vibration machine companies advertise claiming they have these special motors and
vibration technolgy that is really powerful and are the "best" for everyone's needs.
Yea, sure they do!!
I keep seeing these cheap ones that look almost identical to the more expensive ones (on the surface, without looking under the frame seeing how cheap the motor and components are). So, I had to figure out what they were all about. I can't always go by specs. Some claim they have 1000 watts and others that have 1000 watts not even half the power of a true 1000 watt model. My freakin hair dryer has 2250 watts. Watts means nothing if you don't know the amperage and horswepower. 3 Horsepower right? is that peak horsepower or constant. 746 watts is 1 Horsepower. So if it really has 3 horsepower, then shouldn't it be over 2100 watts? Yes and no. This can depend on the gear ratio and engineering and other things. What happens when 2 years later when the motor loses power? Do you know what makes one motor lose power after this time when its put into a vibration machine? Most people don't. If the weight limit is 400 pounds, then why do you have to keep changing belts all the time?
I have 3 words for them. Cheap. Industrial. Components.
If you want to buy these cheap machines be their guest, not mine. You can pretend you bought a great machine when you actually didn't.
A Zaaz machine has only 400 watts and that is more powerful than most of the 1000 watt machines out there. Again, its all about the amperage and voltage. The Zaaz has 4 amps which I consider very high. There are cheap 300 dollar machines on Ebay that have 1500 watts but only 1.5 amps, and they bog down the second I lean back on my heels on the plate.
Beware of whole body vibration machine that don't include the horsepower and amperage together. Just saying 1000 watts means nothing to me. Most companies don't give out their amperage on their website.
Why do you think the cheap 1000 watt motors burn out quickly. Because they are cheap. If a heavy weight is on it and its pulling too much amperage than the motor allows it is the quickest way to burn out the motor and NO, this is not covered under the warranty.
A good vibration machine usually has components that are UL and ROHL listed and will often be more expensive. Companies that usually have these safety certifications list them on their website.
