When buying a mobility scooter, there are factors that can lead our purchase towards one type or another of scooter. In addition to price, a logical variable in any purchase, it will be essential to focus on the dimensions and weight of our scooter, being able to buy a large sized mobility scooter, a medium scooter or a small scooter. Large scooters offer us a series of advantages that we explain below.
Advantages of a Large Mobility Scooter
There are several factors that will lead us to decide to buy a large scooter.
The person who is looking for a robust, strong and powerful mobility scooter, should opt for a large scooter model. This type is a great option if the terrain we are moving through is uneven and with irregularities. Depending on the characteristics of the terrain, we could even consider buying an off-road mobility scooter.
These type of mobility scooters are heavier than medium or small ones. Weight and dimensions lose importance here and that is why manufacturers can assemble batteries with high capacity and autonomy, this being another of their great advantages.
Lastly, the comfort of a large scooter is one of its basic characteristics. Comfort on the seat, which, depending on the model, can even be reclining or tilting sideways for better access, pneumatic and not plastic wheels, shock absorbers, head restraints ... Large scooter models are, without any gender of doubts, the most comfortable of the market.
Advantages and disadvantages of buying a small mobility scooter
Disadvantages of the large scooter
- · Scooter length greater than 1.20 meters
- · Higher weight
- · Difficult access to narrow areas (elevators, corridors ...)
- · Difficulty of transport (most of the small ones are foldable or easy to disassemble, while none of the big ones are)
Advantages of the large scooters
- Longer battery life (longer autonomy)
- Pneumatic wheels that absorb movement
- Shock absorbers in all models
- Higher motor power
- Greater response on rough terrain and off-road.
- Greater speed
