Both. It does have a plug, but you have to purchase that separately. It also runs off D batteries that are not included so make sure you pick some up. I got all the way home and was half way through putting it together before it mentioned the batteries. I live 2 hours from a store so it was a long time before I could get them.

The machine runs on 4 D alkaline batteries which will cost you around $7 or instead of using batteries you can buy a 6 volt 2 amp AC adapter plug in. If you choose the adapter option Walmart sells a ProForm 6-Volt AC Adapter on their website for around $19 plus shipping. I bought batteries so I could start using it right away, but to save money over time will probably order a cable soon. Though the batteries are nice if you use it in the middle of a room because then you do not need to be close to an outlet and can easily roll it around to move it.

The display is powered, and if you want to SET the stride, you need power, but otherwise, no, it appears to be manually propelled by the user - which I haven't found to be a problem.

You need to put a mat under it as well as balance it.

I don't have a mat under mine and it sits on a hardwood floor and thankfully doesn't wobble - but if it did, I'd get a floor mat for it.

Place your machine on a hard surface. I had mine on carpet and it did the same thing. I placed the rear feet on a piece of 3/4" plywood and it really stiffened it up.

No, it's one set stride length. There's a knob under the petals that lets you adjust the incline of the petals but not the stride length. It is perfect for myself at 5'3" and my husband at 6'. Hope that helps.

I had this same issue too on the 3rd usage! My turned out to be loose bolts at the base of the stem. Even though I had torqued down all bolts when putting together, they still became loose. If it happens again, I'll put on lock washers. You have to pry up the long cover over the main part of the base to get to the 5 bolts holding the stem up.

Paula928 I had the same issue when I firstb bought it. After trying it 3 times it began to squeak it was really annoying.
However, I did find a solution. All you have to do is spray WD40 near the bolts that you tightened. For the caps you need to pull the caps off, spray WD40 and put the caps back on. It works a charm and now I've had the treadmill for about a month with not a single squeak.

Paula, Determine exactly where the squeaking is coming from on the front. You might need a friend to assist. Assure your arm pivot bushings are well greased. (Only the outer 1/2" is used) There is only 6 areas that it could be coming from on the front. Let's start on the bottom and work up. The two roller wheels, the lower pivot bolt just ahead of the foot pegs, and the upper pivot bushings on the arm handles as mentioned above. I hope this helps and I've only owned mine for about a month but love it.

I just bought this elliptical and the adjustable pedal part is under the pedal and it manually rotates to 3 different positions. You have to lift up the pedal to turn the knob and it does not have a locking mechanism but is very sturdy and has a built in spring under the pedal.
