Echo-3 from New England submitted this review on January 20th 2008 at 11:37 AM. Echo-3 is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:Very manuverable indoors. A great scooter to have while your power chair is charging! Lightweight, charges fast, holds a charge fairly long. Can be found for a very affordable price compaired to other chairs/ scooters [under $500]. So, shop around! That is inexpensive compared to paying 1 to 3 thousand for others. Haven't used it outdoors but seems to have plenty of power for hard flat surfaces outdoors. I think hills or grass will kill any battery no matter what you buy. So, don't rule this scooter out.
Weaknesses:I wouldn't call it a weekness but it's not a strength. It's basic. In the end, that keeps it lightweight. However, being that it's lightweight, don't plop down in the seat. In it's stock form, I almost fell over on it once! The seat was too low for me [rasied as high as it could go in stock form] and I REALLY plopped down into it. Then the front wheel popped up! If you have long legs, it can feel crowded for your knees. You can always raise the seat with wood blocks and longer bolts to help remedy that but be careful if you do. Remember, you don't want it too high or it will be top heavy/ tippy. The seat padding is only about an inch thick. It probably wouldn't be comfortable to sit on for a long day. At 5'10" and 180 lbs, I'm OK with it. I'm not sure why, but i get a lot of static shocks when I ride this. Sometimes you can really hear/ feel the SNAP.
Comments:I like it. It really is "fun to drive". It can go much faster than I need indoors. The low price was a huge factor in deciding to buy this mail order item. I did not see it in advance but was very happy with it when I used it. It's probaly like a 3 to 4 on durability. You can't lean on the handle bars to get up, but can lean on the seat's arms if you get them. I was expecting a metal deck but it's plastic and it would probably crack if you stood up on it. Would I buy it again? YES.
