Thumbs up Mobility Scooter Hoists

Mobility Scooter


I have a very low mileage Van Os Zoom 4 ( 5 mph ) mobility scooter, which I bought new in July 2014, and have hardly used since purchased.

One if the reasons is that even though it breaks up into 5/6 pieces, each piece is still quite heavy to lift in & out of the car, if you have no balance!

Ramps tend to be a bit awkward for me, so the Zoom is 'on the market' , and I have bought a Pride Quest actual folding scooter ( Aug 2014 and also hardly used & a bargain at 420 ), which is much easier to handle/transport, and it :-

a. Doesn't need breaking up, fitting nicely into the boot and

b. Is very much lighter to lift in & out

Then I go and damage my shoulder, and now it's become too much to lift it in & out, again!

Autochair and other auto lift suppliers are very expensive, so, this pm I bought me a used external electric hoist, powered by the scooter's lithium battery, and it's ' bloody fantastic - https://youtu.be/dtC1piRM7io

Wow she is indeed 'Bloody Fantastic'...... I'm extremely impressed !!

The Hoist is quite neat too, though only really looks suitable for the micro fold up scooters really ??

Cool

I actually used it to lift a few things up to just below the loft opening, whilst I sat on top of the step ladder- it lifts 30 kilos.

Used the removable battery from the scooter to power it, and as the switch is at the top, it was easy to control - Worked very well!
