The mobility scooter has become a common sight in our towns and cities, and these clever, compact and affordable machines have brought a new lease of life to disabled and elderly people. They can be used for getting to and from the shops, for visiting friends, for attending social events or just for getting some time out and about in the fresh air, and for the many thousands of users who have one, they really are a life-changing experience.
There are many different makes, models and types of mobility scooter on the market – from the simple models that are designed to get you about and that’s it, to those that have some very special features – and we have reviewed the ones that we reckon are the best and most appropriate available today. We advise you have a look at all of our reviews before you make a decision as to the right one for you, so here’s one that we think worthy of inclusion; the Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter is a very simple, affordable and usable mobility scooter that is also very popular, so let’s have a look at what makes it so.
Why the Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter?
We will begin by saying that the Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter is nothing special; that’s not a criticism, but actually a major plus. It’s a very simple easy to use, low-maintenance mobility scooter that is well-built and sensibly priced, and one that does the job it is intended to with no fuss. That is what most buyers and users want, after all, so it is little surprise it sells well. Let’s check out some of the feature you will find on this model:
Users of mobility scooters need to be comfortable, and the Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter does all it can to ensure that the user is as comfortable as can possibly be. The seat is lightweight and can be moved through 360-degrees for ease of access, and it is well-padded so the user is comfortable throughout. Also, there are various adjustments that can be made in order to ensure it is tailored for the rider specifically.
The Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter is designed to be small enough to fit into the boot of a car with simple disassembly – it can be done without special tools and put back together in a matter of a couple of minutes – or, if you have a larger vehicle such as an estate or MPV, it will fit in neatly without the need to take it apart.
Batteries power this model as they do most mobility scooters, so a range of 10 miles on a full charge is adequate, if not the best in the business. It’s perfect for getting the shopping done, and charging is by standard mains power point.
Electric braking, a horn, lights and other safety features are part of the Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter selling point; it has a nice basket for carrying your shopping, and it comes with a host of adjustable items so you can make it your own – including a set of extra body panels for a different colour if you wish.
Is this the one for you? Well, if you are looking for a simple, no-frills mobility scooter that does the job, is easy to put in a car, gives a sensible range and is easy to use, then it could be a good choice. The Scout Light Weight Mobility Scooter can be bought for around £550 – which makes it one of the cheaper models on the market – and you can even get a deal that includes three months of free insurance, so we recommend you consider this one carefully.
