In the late 60’s the first mobility scooter was introduced to the general public and marked the beginning of an era where people who have difficulty walking are no longer restricted in the actions they can perform. A mobility scooter is a personal movement equipment that can greatly improve the independence and mobility of its rider. There are several different kinds of mobility scooters that are available today. Usually, one of the most rugged and powerful models of mobility scooter is the heavy duty scooter. Heavy duty scooters have been thoroughly engineered to provide service over some of the roughest terrains around.
Their dependability has earned them a lot of rewards and some of the 4 wheel drive models can travel over terrain that most people wouldn’t drive their car over. These are considered to be the lightest duty scooters with relatively short battery life and limited range. For conditions where storage or transportation options are limited, these scooters fold down to allow for placement in smaller areas whether in the house, car, or van. These models are best suited for use on level ground and activities such as shopping due to their tight dealing with and turning radius in close quarters. These models are built to heavier specifications and can carry up to 500 pounds. We know that the 4 wheel design of these scooters offers more stability, longer battery life, and heavy duty mobility than the three wheel mobility scooters.
Built to heavier standards than three wheel electric bikes, these offer much greater stability, greater top speeds and longer battery life. Electric scooters and electric bicycles are the next generation of mobility choices for people with conditions that restrict their ability to get around. With the wide variety of options, consulting a professional is the best way to ensure that the purchase of a mobility scooter or light weight mobility scooter meets the needs of the buyer.
