Heavy Duty Mobility Scooters
A heavy-duty mobility scooter is a scooter that tends to have a bigger motor, wider base, and larger tires for better ground clearance. It is the ideal solution if you need a durable device to help you make trips outside your home. Whether you work in a different environment, patronize a business or store, visit family and friends, or participate in activities, you need a heavy-duty mobility scooter that can travel a greater distance, has important safety features (headlights, indicators, enhanced suspension), in addition to handlebar steering and a long battery life.
Features of Our Heavy-Duty Mobility Scooters
A mobility scooter described as heavy-duty or bariatric typically means the scooter itself can handle a greater weight capacity, in some models up to 500 lb., which makes them strong enough to support most users. All are adjustable regarding seat, arms and tiller or steering column. Heavy-duty scooter models generally have a larger chassis making them sturdier and are built for a more comfortable and long-term ride.
There are two main categories of heavy-duty mobility scooters: 3-wheel models or 4-wheel models. The single wheel in front of a 3-wheel model scooter provides for an excellent turning radius that allows you to better maneuver around obstacles. While 3-wheels are less stable than 4 wheels, it does mean the scooter is lighter with more leg room and tends to be lower in cost. They work best on even surfaces. Four-wheel models are heavier and are better for riding on grass, gravel, and overall uneven surfaces. Both 3-wheel and 4-wheel models tend to have larger tires, wider bases, and more powerful motors, however, the 4-wheel models simply withstand more challenging terrains and obstacles.
The Best Heavy-Duty Scooter to Meet Your Needs
In your search for the right heavy duty mobility scooter, it is important to find the model that works best to match your lifestyle, personal needs, and preferences. A 4-wheel model is not necessarily better than a 3-wheel model or vice-versa. There are pros and cons to both. Overall, it comes down to your needs and the multiple options available when it comes to style, features and budget. Maybe speed is your thing! With so many choices, talking to one of our experts for guidance is recommended.
