The box size is 32.5 X 41.5 X 30.75. It will NOT fit in a car, not even sure it would fit in an SUV.

It just fit into my Honda CRV. They were only going to charge me $20 for shipping, and had I known the box was so big, I would have paid the $20.

The box is 41.5 x 30.75 x 32.5 (inches). It is pretty big and won't fit in many cars. You'll need a truck or something with at least the shape and size cargo space of a PT Cruiser.

Question

RESISTANCE

Resistance: I've heard the magnets are small and there is no noticable resistance (or very, very little), even at level 16. Any info out there?

It has 16 work load levels.
At level 1 I can't feel any resistance at all. It is a little difficult for me to stand on the pedals. Feels like standing on a barrel or ball and having to balance to keep one foot from shooting out from under.
At level 2 the resistance is very noticeable and the feeling of having to balance oneself disappears.
I have only been using mine for about a month and am working my way up in both time and work load level. Presently I am at 20 minutes at work load level 5 (out of 16). At this point it feels to me like climbing a stairway through molasses up to about my knees or hips. Difficult, but doable.
I have not even bothered to experiment at higher levels.

I use the programs built in to the unit and you can certainly tell when the resistance level changes. There is considerably more effort required at the peak resistance (9 I think) in my commonly used program than at the lowest (1).

I suspect that those who report that there is no apparent change in resistance have either not operated the machine correctly, or have a faulty unit.

The Gazelle has foot pedals that just hang suspended and swing like pendulums.
This is really an elliptical. The pedals are mounted on steel beams. The front ends of the beams are are attached to linkage arms connected to the handlebars. The rear ends of the beams lay on rubber rollers that are on a rotating crankshaft. The rotation of the crankshaft causes the crank to rotate in a circle under pedals, providing an up / down motion to the pedals and still allow the pedals to move forward and backward at the same time.

It's an elliptical. The flywheels are smaller than on some similar machines, so the elliptical motion is a little less dramatic than would otherwise be the case, but it's still an elliptical action.

The Gazelle type are rather different designs - basically providing motion in a simple arc.

Question

Are the handlebars comfortable enough for someone with shoulder problems?

Answers
answer 1
The handlebars are quite uncomfortable for someone WITHOUT shoulder problems. I see no reason to believe that shoulder problems would make them more comfortable.
I just assumed that being uncomfortable was part of fitness training and I would get used to it. At this point they don't bother me much any more.

answer 2
It depends on the nature of the problem of course. Using the handlebars provides for an extensive arm extension and some shoulder rotation, but the amount of effort depends on stance and preference. As such, you can somewhat temper this use to your physical situation.

Alternatively, if you cannot move your shoulder, you could instead use the static handlebars. The workout is less intense that way, but still effective.

The machine has small wheels on the front cross member, so it can be lifted at the rear to move it. However, the weight (around 200lbs) makes it a difficult proposition - not least because the only lifting point us the rear cross member just above floor level.

Question

EDGE 1400; OR NEW BALANCE 8000

Other than color, price and foot pads. Is the Fitness Quest 1400 Elliptical and the New Balance 8000 Elliptical the same machine?

They look near-identical, and it seems likely they have many common components - they share identical assembly instructions. They also share the same maximum capacity of 300lbs, but the New Balance 8000 has different stride lengths (18 and 20 rather than 17 and 21). In other respects the specifications appear the same.

The footpads also appear different, with the NB model having a better contour and surface grip, but the NB model appears to have only 6 programs, where the FQ 1400 has 8.

I am five foot tall. Would the stride length of 17" be too long for me? I've tried a 16" - it was OK.

I believe inseam measurement would be a better way to judge stride length. I have a 28 inch inseam and the 17 inch stride feels acceptable. I'm guessing that when I work up to higher work loads and faster speeds, I may even want to switch to the 21 inch stride, but for now 17 is just fine.

yes, it does... the control panel and resistance settings are controlled by a power pack that plugs into the wall, unlike a lot of others that require batteries or require you to purchase the power pack separately

Yes. You have to hit the "reset all" button and then hit the "up" button until "Man Prog" appears on the display. Hit "start" and use the up down buttons to control resistance.
