Awesome chair and pleasantly surprised.


Ive had this chair about one month, my first chair, and I must say I am impressed! Its more and better quality than I hoped for and I really enjoy it. Fortunately, I have a modified van and I can easily load and unload without lifting. Otherwise, it would be too heavy for myself. Published weight is 190lbs with batteries. It goes everywhere, the speed is good, battery long life. $1,000.00 less than what I was looking at but, it is 25 lbs heavier then, it is more sturdy

Love it!


I don't know the exact speed, but it moves right along at the lowest speed, and I weigh 215 lbs. Make sure you have a place that it is safe to practice before using in public (I used a church parking lot near my house). Fun to ride in. It was also too heavy for my care provider to life high enough to put in her trunk by herself (2 people or 1 really strong one to lift}. Hope this was helpful.

Excellent electric chair for the money

We have had this chair for more than 2 years and we have had no issues with it at all. It folds to fit in a trunk or stow in a compartment under a bus with relative easy. Its a bit heavy for a senior but it can be managed to take apart the various components for storage. It is easy to drive with its rear wheel drive set up. I would and have recommended it to everyone who has asked.
