Bob from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK submitted this review on November 1st 2005 at 01:54 PM. Bob is an end user who has less than a month of experience with the product.
Strengths:A very robust scooter. I'm 250lb 6'3" and it copes very well with my weight. Up pavement edges (sidewalk edges) 4" no problem.
2 very large battery compartments for the larger 40ah batteries.
Steering is adjustable to suit my 6'3" height. Not top heavy.. And very quiet.
Weaknesses:Not too good a warning for battery charge.. The led lights for me are not acurate enough, unlike the anolog needle on earlier/diferent makes, models of scooters.It told you how much ampage you where using (the led lights only tell you of how much charge remains in the batteries)..
Going down 4" pavement edges (sidewalk kerbs) The 2 little wheels on the rear from the chassis seem to hinder a smooth controlled dismount to the lower level. this in turn gives me a jolt to my lower spine as where my disability is. Steering lock is fine, but has a tendancy to lock in the furthest right.. This is due to a very feeble little tag on the under side to prevent this, and actualy bending and allowing the steering mechanism to jam on full right lock.. This being the right in my case..
Rear monocott suspension (where fitted) is not enough for a good stable controll of direction.. As the rear end seems to cope with the undulations up and down, it seems as though it could get out of control where the surface you are travelling on has a undulating camber (starts rolling side to side and then starts to influence another direction...)making steering a full time job.. No suspension on the front does not allow a smooth forward mounting of obstacles ie. Kerbs again.. you have to practicaly stop dead to involve the smallest of different levels.. The same goes for the front axle's central mounting point.. myself am sure that this is what causes the swaying from side to side on alternate cambers. The rubber studs that are to minimise this have to be nearly squashed by adjusting to prevent this (when rear monocott suspension is fitted) I've removed my rear suspension and replaced it with the correct fitting Invacare UK's part Number 1421661 this a solid strutt that just a bolt at the bottom and double pinned at the top.. (this for me stopped the swaying from side to side)... 8km an hour is suitable for my needs but just now and then crossing busy roads could just do with a couple more KPH.
Comments:Overall I don't think my second hand 1 year old scooter is the bees knees of mobility at 6-8kph, but! I wont be parting with it for a while.. It copes with my 250lbs weight quite respectably and the more expensive ones seem to have very much the same fualts as mine.. So, I'll stick with mine and keep my mobility going.. I've not tried to flatten the batteries by distance.. But, just after buying it, it suffered a complete discharge and the scooter stopped dead.. This was down to fualty batteries and a loose battery terminal.. 2 new 40ah batteries (free of charge by who I bought it off) and connectors, has put that problem behind me...
