What’s the difference between magnetic, motorised and hydraulic treadmills?

I’m looking for a treadmill and not very sure what the difference is. What are the features & advantages of each one?

    magnetic ones work by magnetism
    motorised ones contain motors
    and hydraulic ones use fluid resistance.

    Easiest first – motor treadmill. The roadway – the belt – is turned by a motor and you jog along on top of it

    Magnetic and hydraulic ones are where you move the road by your action and the magnet or hydraulics provide some resistance to your movement.

    Advantages? Well there must be something inthe motorised ones since all the ones I have seen in the gyms and sports shops are that type. You can set the belt to turn at a set speed, some allow an incline on the belt as well to give you a harder work out.

    For the other 2 types, the speed of the belt is the speed of you, so I think it is a little simular to road running – if you start slowing you will where there motor one will force you tokeep a steady pace

    If I were you I would have a look in a large sports shop that sells several of each type, try them out – the sales man willlet you since it is a good sale for them, and see which you like the best. You could get a trial gym membership as wellfor a month to try out their treadmills before you decide
