Which is the Best Heavy Duty Mobility Scooter?
There are a lot of answers when responding to the question “Which is the best heavy duty mobility scooter?”
Scooters have varying purposes and the design best suited to a heavy duty mobility scooter will differ greatly from say a portable scooter.
Before you even consider buying a heavy duty or off-road scooter, you need to ask yourself what you intend to use the scooter for. If you just want to go for a jaunt on a country footpath for example then you don’t need full-blown off-road scooter.
If you really must go off road there are a few specifically designed heavy duty vehicles that claim to best even the roughest terrain, they come in various configurations be it three, four or six wheels with some even having tracks like a tank.
However, they are only of any use on really rough ground and tend to be totally impractical for day to day use. They are extremely heavy and have poor turning circles so you couldn’t use one to go shopping for example.
Tracked vehicles tend to damage the surface you take them over so you may not be popular when you tear up the golf course, national trust path or nature reserve with your scooter!
