|We have carefully selected our range of Mobility Scooters to have a product range for every requirement. If you wish to have a light weight folding scooter or a large powerful Scooter to comfortably take you two miles from home to the shops and back home we have a scooter to meet your needs.|
We have taken time and effort to evaluate the market and select a range of Mobility Scooters to meet your comfort, quality and price requirements.
Small/Class 1 Scooters
These are ideal for people who need to travel, by car or other method, to the place their mobility scooter will be used. The batteries are necessarily smaller than average and hence have a more limited range between charges (typically around 10 miles).
The scooter chassis, battery pack and basket can be separated for storage during transport, the chassis often capable of being dismantled into smaller parts.
The rear section, containing the motor, is generally the heaviest component. Solid tyres are normally used on portable scooters, to avoid punctures.
Medium/Class 2 Scooters
These are larger and more comfortable than portable scooters, with larger batteries that permit around 20 miles of travel between charges. They are ideal for people who do not need to transport their scooter, although some mid size models can be dismantled with a tool kit if absolutely necessary.
Pneumatic or in-filled tyres tend to be employed on mid size scooters; the former provide a more comfortable ride over uneven ground but have the disadvantage of being liable to puncture or lose pressure.
Large/Class 3 Scooters
Class 3 mobility scooters are allowed to travel on the roads at speeds of up to 8 mph, so they come with all the lights, indicators and mirrors required. They are particularly useful if you live in an area with uneven terrain or insufficient pavements, as they have a better suspension than smaller models.
Their larger batteries lend them a greater range but they are mostly too bulky and heavy to transport unless you have a large van with ramps. Their size and weight also make them less manoeuvrable than smaller models.
All terrain chairs are able to go go where the majority of other chairs cannot go, over sand, snow, mud, grass and steep hills even the beach is a breeze.
We have a variety of models which really do open up the boundaries from simply walking the dog in the park ,accompanying the kids on a bike ride or checking the livestock in the fields - the off road capability's of our All Terrain chairs will open up your horizons.
However "Off Road" means surfaces that are not smooth, such as grass, gravel tracks and muddy paths. Any of these surfaces have potential dangers and even our all terrain chairs has their limitations.
So please, don't try steep hills or very rocky ground. At best you could get stuck, at worse damage to yourself or your chair.In any case, always go with a companion and make sure you carry a fully charged mobile phone with you.
Always let someone know where you are both going and check out that the area is passable by wheelchair, beforehand.
On Forestry Commission or other tracks, check that there are no stiles or gates to curtail your progress. Wear gloves, padded clothing and be on the lookout for an unstable situation, where you could tip and come out of the chair.
