    Stairmaster or stepmill?

    I lift at home and i really like stairmasters, but they are really expensive. I want one in my damn house lol. But before i shell out that kind of cash i wanted an opinion from you guys on another option. Theres 2 kinds of stair masters you mainly see;

    A real stepmill that we all love


    And these weird rinky dink ones


    Ive never used one of the rinky dink ones but for the price difference i would give it a shot if it will offer me a similar workout as a real stepmill. Has anyone used both with this in mind? Ive always walked right passed those cheap ones

    Almost 75% grade or plus. They are steps for an old loading dock from an old rail road system that cuts through a sheer cliff face . It's free, only cost is calories I spend to get to them right up the road at the park trail

    i know it sucks but. Took a I walk around there the other day and found some hidden water fall with like a 100' rock slide that goes right into a natural pool. It's been mild here for some reason. But then again weather is always weird here..literally can be 60and sunny one day as the next is 20 and blizzard...it's been a wet winter here.
    Can't wait for the summer
