Strengths:*Endurance - Travels a long ways between charges

*Heavy Duty - Does well outdoors, un-level terrain, grass, goes up steep inclines

*Comfortable Seat
Weaknesses:Light Package way over-priced. The headlight does not illuminate ahead of you. Complained to Pacesaver and they said it isn't intended for you to see better, but so people see you from the front. Turn signals are controlled with 2 on/off switches. The rear lights are about 3" off the ground and not very bright.

Extremely vulnerable to moisture. Scooter was caught in a moderate rain and turned off - stopped raining in about 5 minutes. Scooter would not run after. Allowed it to dry for 3 days - still would not start. Unplugged and plugged in everything I could think of - finally took apart the controller box and unplugged/plugged in all connections. Finally worked after that. Still not sure what in the controller was problematic since all were unplugged at the same time.

Rough riding outdoors. There is no suspension in the back - just a 3/8" piece of rubber between the transaxle and frame. A small spring and shock would improve the ride considerably. Although it can do over 5 mpg, I can't drive it that fast because my back can't handle it.

Several parts not uniform - see in comments.
Comments:I would say this a really good homemade scooter. It is powerful and runs a long time on a charge.

I was unimpressed with hand made parts, such as the bracket that holds the transaxle to the frame. It is a piece of flat steel bent by hand - it is not uniform and you would have a problem if you didn't keep track of what side each go on. They are not interchangeable. Though it appears that the mount holes are drilled the same distance from each end, they are not. You have to put them on just as they were when you took them off. Having these brackets professionally shaped would be inexpensive when manufactured in quantity.

There is a piece of rubber between each end of the transaxle and the frame. The rubber piece is cut pretty crooked - it is obvious each one is hand cut, ang again, a jig could be made so they are square.

As I have looked over the scooter I found 3 places where a hole with a screw had an empty hole right next to it. Obviously it was not drilled in the right place the first time. Again, a jig would eliminate this problem.

The major flaw with this is its susceptibility to water. I use a GoGo Traveler at work and it goes between my car and the building daily. It has been subjected to much harder rains and never has had a problem. I now keep a cover on-board and immediately put it on if it even begins to sprinkle. I can sit on top of the cover and still operate it enough to get it out of the rain, but I drive it very slowly.

Strengths:Very good power. Good distance. I ordered a custom seat which I find comfortable.
I am over 400 pounds and have always been very active. I refuse to allow my disablilities to slow me down. As a result I am VERY demanding on my Eclipes Atlas Scooter. Consider this when reading my comments on its weaknesses.
Weaknesses:In the first year I went through three sets of front wheel bearings. I finally fixed it myself after I discovered gouging in both backplates of the front axles. I shimmed with steel washers and put in USA made "steel" bearing instead of the pressed China aluminum ones Leasure Lift uses.

The motor control board recently went bad because of the cheap potentiometer. Rather a dumb design; the direction/speed control is clamp attached to the end of the "pot" rod so the lateral force wears it out prematurely.
Comments:The biggest problem, and why my next scooter will not be a Leasure Lift product, is lack of parts and service.

The company I bought my scooter from went out of business and the Leasure Lifts approved sevice centers wount't work on scooters they didn't sell.

I am trained in electronics as well as mechanics and Leasure Lift refused to sell me the parts I needed. Fortunately I was able to fix the problems myself. Unless you can work on electrical and mechanical problems yourslf. stay away from Leasure Lift!!!
