Weslo Momentum 635 Elliptical User Review

by Terry
(Lancaster, PA USA)

I got the Weslo Momentum 635 elliptical trainer used from a friend who rarely used it. However, in the time she did use it, she had to replace one of the arms that broke at the welds. In less than 6 months, the other arm broke at the welds and I had it welded on two different occasions, the second time having reinforcing rods placed to support the arms at the welds. A short time later, the support bar that runs from end to end of the trainer, collapsed at the welds! I took it apart and the welder rewelded the joints and added more support to the frame.

It worked great for a month or so, and now one of the rods that connects to the flywheel and supports the foot "pedals" has broken off. I'm not sure if I can get it welded back on or not.

My point is, I've owned a lot of exercise equipment over the years and never had a piece of junk like this Weslo elliptical trainer. I didn't need the bells and whistles of some of the higher priced elliptical trainers, but I did need one that is durable. If you are going to use it as a clothes rack, have at it...otherwise, the Weslo Momentum 635 is not worth the money.

The Weslo Momentum 635 Elliptical is Junk
by: Anonymous

I was also given one of these and it had a failed weld in a lower arm. In researching parts prices I found that the cost of a new lower arm was nearly 90% of the cost of the entire machine. Adding all parts prices together makes maintaining this toy astronomically expensive and ridiculous to buy, given the obvious design flaws. So the only choice is to junk it when it breaks and that will probably give you more exercise than its intended function.
