Great product great service. By:
This scooter was so good for the price that I bought two of them. One of them had a problem and the service folks sent another at no charge. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
Good value for the price By:
Great little transportable scooter. It has all the power I need, and it fits easily in the hatch of my wife's small car.
We love this Scout. By:
It's easy to use. My husband and I can easily get it into out car. I bought two extra batteries but we have never needed them.
Exactly What My Wife Needed! By:
My wife has Parkinson's and shopping has become too much for her with her walker. She resisted the "Power Shopping Carts". Finally figured out that a product like this is what she needs. Since getting this scooter, she get's out at least once a week to go grocery shopping, Walmart, etc. We park in a handicap spot, I assemble the scooter, help her get on and we are off.It has easy to use controls, nice battery guage (5 miles oer charge) and is thoughtfully designed to make getting on and off as easy as is possible. Sturdy flip up armrests and a swivel seat that locks into multiple positions are nice touches.My only small complaint is that the turning radius of this four wheeled version is really wide. Takes some practice but works fine in a store, not sure about inside a home. We only use if for shopping. We chose the stability of having four wheels vs the three wheeled version. This is solidly built, very stable and just "feels" safe to go on a spin.It seems durable and really is simple to use. The speed control knob limts speed but when turned up to max, will get you someplace in a hurry. After you do it a few times, the assembly and disassembly is quick and pretty painless.Really glad that we purchased this scooter. It's been nearly life changing for my wife . . .
Usable by anyone, of any age By:
So far, I am using this rig strictly indoors. However, I see no reason it could not be used outdoors. It is ruggedly constructed and very stable. The great turning radius allows easy use indoors without needing extra wide halls or doors. It is very forgiving when you do hit something – like baseboard or the inside of a doorway. Everything that “leads” is made of slightly soft plastic which bends rather than breaking.I am 6 foot 4 and weigh 220 lbs. While the unit does not have the legroom of the family sedan, it is ample, if slightly cramped. For example, with a cast on my right leg, getting the cast around the steering column to exit the “vehicle” on the left is a little difficult, but do-able. The obvious solution is to pull up with the right side facing where you need to get off.The battery appears to hold up well. I am in my fifth week of using the thing and have re-charged only three times. For sure once, and possibly twice, recharging was done before the audible warning to recharge went off.It is easy to use and straight forward enough for anyone. The grand-kids love it and someone who is elderly and cautious would find it easy to use. There is a rheostat to control top speed and a hand lever to control forward and back within the range set by the rheostat. Set at its lowest and slowest setting, even the most cautious person would feel safe. Cranking it up to 1/3 speed makes it challenging to navigate inside, but lots of fun. Somewhat the feel of a go-kart.Like so many products, the “manual” is next to useless. It provides no real guidelines for recharging, only platitudes such as “many factors go into determining how far you can go between charges.” Tell me something I did not already know. The one glowing miss in the instructions is telling you who to unlock the front wheels. The unit comes with them locked. There is a knob on the front of the steering column which has to be pulled out, then turned to unlock the front wheels.When it arrives, completely dissemble the unit before taking it out of the box. That will make it much lighter to lift. The rear wheel/motor assembly is probably the heaviest of the four main components, and the easiest to remove and re-install.Based on my experience, I would not hesitate recommending this product to almost anyone.

Love My New Ride! By:
Loving this mobility scooter. It’s very quiet. I went to an outdoor mall a week after receiving it. It was wonderful to be independent (instead of someone pushing my manual wheelchair) and to stay longer than I normally would (when I use my walking cane). I still need to learn how to load/unload it into the trunk of my car. My husband has done it every time. After watching him, it’ll take some time for me to be able to do it alone. It looks heavy and (I believe) there are five parts. When I left the mall after 3 hours, the charge on the scooter battery barely changed and my own (body) battery wasn’t totally drained. Yay! I’ve also tested out the speeds and am very impressed at how fast the scooter could go if I ever needed it to. The two cons are turning the wheel and the seat. I haven’t mastered turning because the wheel doesn’t turn all the way. When at the mall, I had to either cut really, really wide or back up & go forward several times. The seat is not as comfortable as I would like so I plan to buy a padded seat cover. For these two reasons, I wanted to give it 4 stars but at this price point I just couldn’t. It is much better priced than others I was looking at. I hope it holds up. Also, I left the arms off for now. The seat spins to the outside for me to get in and out which is very convenient. I cant wait to take it for another spin. So far, I love my new scooter. Will update this review in a few months.

    Interesting that colors are offered but they all come with the Scooter By:
    One of the best scooters on the market. Stable, easy to assemble and disassemble, great looking with lots of accessory choices.
    easy to assemble, well made, rides great! By:
    This scooter is very well designed! went together easy! I made my own cane/flag holder & have been loving riding!.Only bummer was finding a way to dispose of the monster box & all packing. Same early & driver was helpful.A smart phone holder and a flag & pole came as free extras. Using that for my garage door opener. Rides very well.
    easy to assemble By:
    i am handicapped and the ability to get outside and enjoy the sunny skies of arizona has raised my morale and i heartily recommend the buzz around
    Sturdy By:
    Very sturdy and rides well. We bought this for my mom and she loves it. The only negative comment would be that we were sent the incorrect color. Also, note this scooter is very large and not easy to lift or transport even though it breaks down. So make sure you have a hitch and carrier.
    A Terrific Mobility Scooter. By:
    Good value for the money. It is wonderful not to depend on an in-store electric cart being available. With my disability, it makes the trip into the store and back a breeze. This well-designed mobility scooter is a bargain.
    Great By:
    First Impressions... Pleased. Packed well. Easy to put together. Fast. Powerful. Lots of unexpected extras. Will report back if any problems...
    Very happy with this scooter! By:
    I have been very impressed with this scooter. I've had it for a few weeks now and have used it almost every day. I live in rural NH so it was important to me to have something that would go on dirt roads, low grass and gravel. This has worked great on all three. I can take my dog for a walk for the first time in 3 yrs. It is also hilly in NH, my driveway is somewhat steep and gravel, and this scooter goes right up it. I haven't tested how far it will go on a charge, worried I will get stranded since it's very painful for me to walk, but hope to go longer with it soon with my husband nearby incase the battery doesnt hold out.The largest part of the scooter is a bit heavy, 56lbs, although I am still strong enough to lift it into my car. The only other issue I had was the front tires were misaligned when I received it, facing different directions and not drivable, but luckily my husband knew how to realign them in a couple of minutes. Overall very happy!
    You gave my Mother her life back!!! By:
    I can't say enough good about this scooter! My Mother who has had mobility issues for the past 10-15 years had a scooter that was provided by Medicare and it stopped working. The scooter she had was of an age that nobody had parts for it anymore and so she reapplied for a new scooter. Medicare declined the request. I'll refrain from my comments about them in this post. Long story short, the scooter arrived today and my Mother is thrilled. She said "I finally have my life back!!" She uses the scooter to visit my sister who lives across the street and my brother who lives 2 houses down the street. She finally has the ability to visit her children and grandchildren any time she likes again.Thank you so much to William who helped get the scooter there as fast as possible!I know my Mother can't wait for the battery to finish the first charge so she can surprise everyone.I love the fact that this scooter has a headlight and tail light so she can be seen while traveling the 50 yards from my brothers house in the dark.She hasn't ridden it yet and I'll update my post once she does but you can't imagine how happy she is. She's already commented about it having so many more features than the one she had that died.I told her that this means that she will have to accompany my wife while she goes on her marathon training runs when we come and visit.Thank you again!!! You have no idea how happy this scooter has made my Mom!!

    Great scooter for the price. By:
    This is A great scooter for the money. Just spent two days days at an amusement park and used my scooter for the first time. Ran like A charm, comfortable and really a saved our days. Light enough and breaks down small enough to fit in my van. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
    it's ease of construction By:
    it's functional design
    Functionality By:
    This is an extraordinarily good product. Were the price three times higher than it is, the cost would be worth it. // I have only one (1) complaint: Change the battery disconnect location. Make such a fitting a retrofit option. // Whitney Gordon
    Small enough to fit in our mobility van for dad ... By:
    Small enough to fit in our mobility van for dad along with mom’s very large 6 wheeled electric chair. It has zip to it and holds a charge for us! It’s a little small so that has to be taken in as consideration, but it works for our needs.
    Great Scooter By:
    I love this scooter. It enables me to go places I could never go before. It folds nicely and fits easily in the back of my Odyssey. It’s not to large to keep you from going down any store isles. The one thing I dislike is the battery is kind of Heavy. Otherwise I love this scooter. Now I want to look for accessories like a bag that atteches right to the scooter. At this Amazon price, it’s well worth it.
    Great scooter By:
    Works wonderfully. Seat is comfy. Long battery life. Easy to maneuver and park. It is heavy tho so my brothers have to help me pack it into my van and then take it out at destination.
    Seems to be of good quality and my mom loves it. By:
    Bought this for my 79 year old mom. She has breathing trouble and can’t get around well without get winded. She loves it and calls to tell me where she goes on it almost daily. Small price to pay to give her more freedom and smiles.
    Great scooter! By:
    I purchased this scooted for my mom so she can have the same freedom she had before she got on oxygen. Now we can go together to the mall and other places without her running out of breath or getting tired!It works perfect! Easy to assemble, not very clear instructions but you can figure out with no problem.It’s light to carry between two people if you don’t have a ramp.I highly recommend it. Great price!
