steven from ny,ny submitted this review on February 1st 2008 at 01:26 PM. steven is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:It is easier than walking
Weaknesses:You have to be careful not to tip it over. I flipped mine twice on very small embankments.It is very hard to put together for someone with mobility issues. The front and rear sections require great care in their alignment. The throttle pot stopped functioning after limited use. I have heard from a dealer that this is a common problem.The front tiller adjustment is located closer to the floorboard than it should be for me to easily adjust.It cannot be used in the rain
Comments:It is time for the manufacturers of these products to be more concerned with quality, reliability and the ease of use for people with disabilities.

Zoomdoggies from Seattle submitted this review on July 17th 2007 at 05:16 PM. Zoomdoggies is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:The newer scooter, with larger batteries, has plenty of range. It's sturdy, but comes apart easily for transport. It's powerful and stable enough to manage my steep driveway without complaint. No maintenance or repair issues (knock wood) in the 2+ years I've had it.
Weaknesses:The speed control can be touchy -- if you want to go slow, you have to set the governor to 'tortoise'. With the speed set to 'bunny', it's hard to do anything besides stop or full speed ahead. It's reasonably handy indoors, but I wouldn't want to take it into a china shop. It's pretty useless on loose gravel or uneven surfaces.
Comments:I really like this scooter. I use it for tooling around town, shopping, visiting museums, walking the dogs, etc. I even used it for getting around the office, although it's not quite nimble enough for that.

rose from tampa fl USA submitted this review on November 16th 2006 at 06:44 PM. rose is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:great range. great for visiting theme parks and open areas. easy to handle and control.
Weaknesses:too bulky for in house, buildings, basic elevators, restaurants, etc... difficult manuevering around in a store so just not best choice for using inside esp tight places.
Comments:Have loved this scooter for using it to visit theme parks here in Florida. Can spend two and half days at the parks before needing to recharge. However, time came needed something inside and found very frustrating trying to get around in buidlings/offices, elevators, just too bulky. Definitely recommend a lift as although it can be taken apart, pieces put in trunk, the pieces are heavy at least for me.

The picture on this page is the old model. New model the batteries are under the seat in two boxes with handles for removing, can charge on or off. Batteries enterlock/fasten into place. Just one battery box is too heavy for me to lift, plus if removing battery i would also have to take seat off.

Overall for what I have used and needed a scooter, the Revo has been great, and met all my needs at the time.

John from Grand Rapids, Michigan USA submitted this review on December 15th 2004 at 04:12 PM. John is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:This review applies to the 2004 Revo, which is a larger, more powerful model than the 2003 Revo -- its got full sized batteries that are good for about 20 miles range and over 4 mph speed. I don't know anything about the 2003 model.

Light weight, easy disassembly -- almost a good travel scooter except the rear piece is still about 48lbs, which is too much for my wife to handle alone.

Batteries are in separate plastic cases, which is good.

The horn is very moderate in volume, which is good because you'll inadvertently hit it about once every minute you're riding.
Weaknesses:This scooter is very hard to control and is not suitable for some users. Let me explain in detail what's wrong:

The steering is "fixed" so that its steers straight ahead if you take your hands off the tiller. That's probably meant to make it more stable, but paradoxically it makes it less stable!!

The problem is that when you want to turn at slow speed, like when you're parking or maneuvering in a crowd, you have to apply so much force to make it turn that you wind up turning too sharply. If you just want to go straight, its great. If you need to turn and maneuver, its not so good!

The speed controler has a very narrow, non-linear range in which it works -- if you pride yourself in maneuvering by adjusting the speed, you can't do it in this scooter -- its pretty much either go at the maximum speed you set with the governor, or its no go -- there's no maneuverability.

The steering and speed controls are both non-linear -- there isn't a response proportional to the input you give it, which means that they interact to make this a chaotically controlled vehicle -- definitely not suited for a user with neurological deficits.

There's a 5-volt fuse sealed inside the battery case, and if that blows, as mine did in Madrid, Spain, you're pretty much screwed unless:

1. You have a replacement fuse
2. You have a long-shank philips head screwdriver.

I had the latter, and once I found the problem, I just wired the gap with a spring from a hotel ball point pen. That's a little risky because it glowed red hot during the night while it was charging, but at least I didn't burn the hotel and I did get to see the city. BTW, this fuse doesn't appear to be described in the documentation. I don't see the purpose for it frankly. I did tape a couple of replacements inside the battery case just in case it happens again.

The charger is external, which could be problem if you travel with it.

Like most scooter lights, the front one on this ISN'T good enough to see very far, but I don't really need it. There's a nice, large, flat, red rear light which I imagine works very well.

There's a green LED dashboard light that is so bright at night it destroys my dark adaption vision, but a piece of black electrical tape takes care of that!
Comments:This scooter has 9" wheels, which means its not so good on rough terrain, but otherwise its comfortable enough.

After 5 months (including the trip to Spain and lots of cobblestone streets in Segovia and Toledo), a front wheel bearing failed. Now after about 9 months, the rear wheel bearings are making the same sounds! I had a rear wheel bearing fail in my Pride Legend after 1 year, and that trashed the whole transaxle. I'm hoping they can replace the rear bearing before they fail, but I'm not sure that's possible.

Luana from Reno, Nevada submitted this review on November 10th 2003 at 03:32 PM. Luana is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:comfort; portability; easy to operate
Weaknesses:A little heavy for user to put in and out of car. Suggest a lift. Key connector loosens up with repeated insertion and removal of key
Comments:Overall, I have found this scooter to work really well and I will keep it for a long time.
