View Our Heavy-Duty Mobility Scooters For Sale Online

Seniors who need to use their scooters frequently for mobility purposes and wish to travel on unpaved roads will love heavy-duty mobility scooters. There are many options available, so it is worth knowing the details.

Wheels

You will need to take your scooter around on different terrains so it is worth investing in larger wheels that can absorb shock. Pneumatic wheels are the best for shock absorption. Some scooters have rubber wheels that are equipped with suspension systems to reduce bumpiness.

Weight Capacity

Heavy-duty scooters can carry up to 500 pounds. This is a great option for seniors with bariatric issues. To ensure the scooter can handle your weight, it is a good idea.

Comfortable seating

Your seat should be comfortable. First, consider the width and depth. You should be able to fit comfortably in the seat. This allows you to rest comfortably without putting pressure on your legs or buttocks.

Consider a cushioned seat if you are likely to use your scooter a lot. A cushioned seat is more comfortable than a standard plastic one.

Operating range

Your scooter's operating range is the distance your battery can take you. These scooters can travel between seven and 25 miles on a single charge. Think about how often you'll use your scooter, and in what environments.

You need to ensure that your scooter has the right range for your activities. A few scooters have an option to store a spare battery. If you are going to be using your scooter for long distances, a backup battery may be an option.

Easy Assembly

It is important that your scooter can be disassembled and assembled quickly if you plan on taking it with you. This will make it easier to transport your scooter.

To make it easier, you can choose scooters that are lightweight and require little to no tools. If seniors are not able to go out often, they should be able to handle this task on their own.

Turning Radius

A scooter that has a narrow turning radius is essential if you are going to be using your scooter in tight places. This will allow you to maneuver your scooter easily and avoid getting stuck. To make the best choice, refer to the specifications for the turning radius in inches.

Where you will use the Scooter

The features and specifications of your scooter will depend on where you use it. Look for large wheels that absorb shock if you spend a lot of time outside, especially on rough surfaces like grass and pavement.

Indoor use requires that the scooter glides smoothly across floors without getting stuck or leaving marks. This will allow you to move freely around your house without being impeded.

What to look out for when buying a heavy duty mobility scooter

Don’t take your dealer’s word for it - be an informed buyer! If you’re in the market for a high weight capacity scooter for the elderly, make sure the unit you buy fits the bill.


This collection only includes scooters that can carry 350 lbs or more. Though it is impossible to draw a firm line, 350 lbs is a good benchmark figure to separate standard mobility scooters from extra heavy duty ones. 


We sell heavy duty models from the best brands with US bases with exceptional track record: Pride Mobility, Drive Medical (heavy duty models), Afikim and Merits Healthcare.


Is a heavy duty mobility scooter suitable as an off road scooter?

If you need to take your heavy duty scooter for the diabled outdoors, you’re in the right place. Though not every outdoor scooter is heavy duty, every heavy duty scooter is going to be suitable for outdoor terrain. Some more than others, though, see the next paragraph. 


Though we define heavy duty scooter by bearing/weight capacity, some people for heavy duty models meaning suitable for difficult terrain or with a high ground clearance. If this is what you want to buy, we recommend our excellent “off road” mobility scooter collection.


The two collections do overlap but it’s best to see all your choices if weight capacity isn’t a priority for you.


How much are heavy duty adult scooters?


Cost is not something you can get away with on heavy duty units. Built stronger, they simply cost more. That doesn’t mean you need to pay an outrageous price for an HD unit! We have models for sale starting as low as $1299 (Drive Medical Phoenix Heavy Duty) all the way up to luxury HD scooters for $4000 and above.


Travelling with a heavy-duty mobility scooter


Unfortunately, travel mobility scooters are very rarely heavy-duty built, and this does exclude the overweight patient from a significant part of the mobility market. 


Some notable exceptions worth highlighting: The Tzora Titan 4 and 3 and the Revo 2.0 by Pride Mobility. We even have a heavy duty folding scooter  - the Triaxe Cruze by Enhance mobility has a weight capacity of 350 lbs - almost unheard of in its niche.


In most cases, a heavy duty scooter chair comes at the expense of easy transport, so be prepared to trade off that advantage for a solidly built vehicle that can take punishment both from the weight loaded onto it and the terrain it traverses.
