I use mine I just dont walk on it. So we have had the dreaded treadmill in the bedroom for years not being used except to hang cloths on so I got sick of looking at it and drug it outside one afternoon while the Wifey was out. Now I just have to get it in the back of the pick up by myself when a light goes on in my pea brain, shoot I could use the top half for a bench base and then all I have to load is the lower treadmill part in the truck. I had a chunk of butcher block countertop from a remodel job I had done so I put the two together and made a nice bench I can roll around the shop if need be. If ya got it use it!
