Some mobility scooters are extremely lightweight and sporty, like the Tzora Elite and Tzora Lite, both of which weigh under 70 lbs. Then there are the heavier scooters which, while not necessarily made for racing or supreme collapsibility, are serious contenders in the mobility aid industry for their pragmatism. These scooters are ideal for people with moderately serious mobility issues generally associated with too much age.
Drive Medical is one of many distributors of mobility products that enhance the quality of life for folks who, back in the day, may have otherwise been confined. Today, with a plethora of mobility scooters to choose from, the question then becomes, Which one? In addition to their Bobcat series, Drive Medical has the Spitfire Scout 4, a transportable mobility scooter that disassembles into 5 pieces for loading. As with their other scooters, this 4-wheeled version is built for stability on rougher outdoor terrain. With a top speed of 4.25 mph, it is only slightly faster than the Drive Medical Bobcat X4. This model does have a slightly longer range of 9 miles, significantly less than that of a real bobcat.
The features one expects from Drive Medical mobility scooters are present on the Spitfire Scout 4: color-through panels to hide scuffs and scratches; an adjustable angle tiller; anti-tip wheels; a height-adjustable seat with a flip-down back that swivels 180-degrees; adjustable-width arms that fold down; and non-marking, flat-free tires. This model comes with additional safety attributes including a quick-connect battery pack, a free-wheel release knob, a delta tiller for those with limited strength or dexterity, and a rear reflector for better visibility. The maximum carrying capacity is 300 lbs., and the Scout 4's total weight is 94 lbs. Included are two sets of color panels in red and blue as well as a large front basket with a carry handle.
This is great. The price was great. Sturdy built. Goes faster than I expected. My dad has one he loves his too. Goes in grass and on gravel as well as paved areas. Must buy...
The ad was 100% accurate and correct. The scooter fills a dire need... The price is the best on the market for similar items.
Very easy to assemble and disassemble. the capability to remove the battery pack and recharge separate from the scooter is a nice feature.
I resisted such a purchase but glad we did. The four wheel stability makes me feel secure. It travels with us all the time.
Scooter is overall easy to use, is whisper quiet and being 4 wheels is very stable. We are very pleased, and a whole new world of opportunity has opened up with this purchase.
It is just what I expected. Easy to assemble, easy to get on and off. I would recommend this scooter great value.
The scooter was easy to put together and fully charged when I received it. I was ready to roll in no time.
If you need a mobility scooter that is portable and easy to transport, this is it... Excellent for casinos and the vegas strip. Highly recommended.
Easy to assemble and use.
Excellent stability and speed but it is mainly made on plastic.
