Review of the Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine
There’s no sense debating if vertical or pivotal vibration is better if the overall production quality is poor.
In the case of the Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine (MSRP $649), which earned just a 61 out of 100 score from vibration-machine-reviews.com, it is a dual vibration machine but doesn’t do either one well.
The general consensus with vibration training machines is that in order for them to be effective a 30-45 hertz range provides the most benefits. It’s generally not recommended to go above 50 hertz or lower than 25 hertz to realize the benefits of real vibration training.
With that in mind, the frequency range of 4-30 hertz on the Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine is extremely lacking. That’s too bad because we do like the overall unit weight of 400 pounds.
Not only is the machine not effective, it’s poorly built. It has a very strong gasoline smell and it off-gases due to the cheap quality of the rubber on the workout platform, which is a big problem if using in a smaller workout space such as a home exercise gym or garage where the smell will linger. A parts warranty of just one year is a sure-fire sign that the manufacturer isn’t very confident equipment is designed to last. Finally, the extremely low price tag is the final indicator that this machine is not well built.
Save your money and buy a machine that does either only pivotal or only vertical vibration and is designed to last.
