With proper care can easily last for five years. If you neglect your batteries by running them down and not charging them right away, you will be lucky to get a year of good service
Some people worry about stability but scooters are hard to tip over. 4-wheelers are more stable, but with a careful driver there should be no stability issues with 3-wheelers. The vast majority of 3-wheeler owners never tip them over. Just as car drivers have a feel for where they can take their car, scooter drivers soon get a feel for where they can take their scooter safely, whether it has three or four wheels.

Driving Related Questions
The scooter is a “pedestrian mobility device”, and is intended for use on sidewalks. You should only ride on the roadway when no sidewalk is available. Always ride with care.
There are many factors that affect driving distance, including:
- Tire pressure
- Rider weight
- And condition of terrain
Manufacturers’ predictions are all based on lighter riders under ideal conditions. Test ride your scooter so that you can determine when to head home or get recharged.
In Canada, medical mobility scooter do not require any form of licensing or insurance.
It is really easy, plus, it is not a racing car as you can go the same speed as a pedestrian.
3-wheelers are more maneuverable than 4-wheelers because they have a much smaller turning circle. 4-wheelers are generally not suitable for indoor use (home, shops etc) except for the very small ones.
3-Wheelers are a little easier to steer because there is only one wheel to turn.
This is a very important consideration. On a 4-wheeler, the front mudguard extends right across the scooter. On 3-wheelers the floor extends forward each side of the steering column so you can stretch your legs forward. Here’s a simple test to see how much legroom you’ll need: Sitting on a 3-wheeler is like sitting in the front seat of a car. Sitting on a 4-wheeler is like sitting in the back seat. If you can’t travel in the back seat of a car because your legs are too cramped up, you will probably need to consider a 3-wheel scooter.
The steeper the hills in your area, the larger the motor you’ll need because power depends on motor size (not battery size). Small scooters have small motors and large scooters have large motors. So larger scooters are better on steep hills.
If your footpaths and roads are fairly bumpy then you should have a scooter with suspension, and pneumatic (pump-up) tires. Solid tires have the advantage of being puncture proof, but they can give an uncomfortable ride on rough surfaces.
Most small and medium scooters can be easily dismantled and placed in the trunk of most cars. Most small and medium scooters will fit into station wagons and some hatchbacks without dismantling, except that the seat usually has to be removed. Many people carry a ramp to load their scooter into a station wagon or hatchback. All scooters will fit into vans without removing the seat, provided any van seats don’t get in the way. Scooters and Mobility offers a scooter lifter that will lift smaller scooters into a trunk, station wagon or van.
Direct or prolonged exposure to water or dampness could cause your product to malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical components to corrode and the unit’s frame to rust. Your scooter or power chair should be examined periodically for signs of corrosion caused by water exposure, bodily fluid exposure, or incontinence. Damaged components should be replaced or treated immediately.
If your scooter or power chair comes in contact with water:
- Dry your device as thoroughly as possible with a towel.
- Allow the product to sit in a warm, dry place for 12 hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
- Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your device again
- If any inconsistencies are found, take your product to your authorized Pride provider
Mobility devices that are frequently exposed to sources of water, such as incontinence, should be inspected often for corrosion, and electronic components may need to be replaced frequently.
One of the first decisions you need to make when purchasing a scooter is whether to go with three wheels or four. The four main considerations here are stability, maneuverability, ease of steering and comfort.
Generally, larger people need larger scooters because they have more room and larger motors. Larger motors are more powerful for hill climbing. Taller people often prefer 3-wheelers because they have much more leg room. All scooters have a specified Maximum Weight Capacity which cannot be exceeded without voiding the warranty, but we have scooters rated up to over 200kg!
It’s best to keep your scooter inside or in a garage to keep it away from the weather. If you can’t do this, it’s OK to keep it in a carport or other sheltered area, but you should cover it with an all-weather scooter cover.
The serial number starts with an S and is located on the seat post. The battery pack may need to be removed.
