Bruce from South Padre Island, TX submitted this review on July 5th 2004 at 08:54 PM. Bruce is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Very durable, built like a tank, very little problems in over 5 yrs of daily use. VERY VERY FAST chair considering the load it is carrying. You will get hooked on the speed and never want to have anything else. This chair is expensive and does cost more but you get what you pay for.
Weaknesses:Its a heavy chair w/ group 27 batteries and with my previous lift, Bruno curbsider arm lift - it was all it could do to pick it up and it finally became a safety issue over time. Now I have a Ricon clearway platform lift and all is fine.
Comments:21st Century builds a very rugged durable chair. They are especially designed for bariatic use and they are fast. They also cost more than most chairs but well worth the investment. They might not be the most stylish of all that are out there on the market....but I can assure you they will perform and last probably twice as long with few problems.
