The 3 Best Mobility Scooter for Going Up Hills

Are looking for a scooter that is capable of supporting  lot of weight and still driving uphill with ease? There are many different mobility scooters out there that serve different purposes so one may ask, what should I be looking for when shopping for a handicap scooter that can drive uphill? Today I will not only explain what it is that will help determine what mobility scooters are capable of driving up hill but I will also give you 3 of the best mobility scooters that can go up hills esaily to choose from

First things first, you want to be looking into more of a supportive mobility scooter, one with a bigger frame that is meant to support and sustain a larger than normal amount of weight. In most any cases you would want to look into heavy duty handicap scooters that have a full suspension. With the full suspension you will get that extra push and torque that normal mobility scooters would not have. This extra boost of power makes it easier to move up hill or on an incline. To determine in more detail how to find what full suspension heavy duty scooters work great when driving up hill, you will want to look into the handicap scooters product specifications and find the climbing angle or grade incline. The higher the climbing degree means the better the performance of the mobility scooter when driving up hill.

Another very important factor when looking for a heavy duty handicap scooter is an upgradable battery option. The more power or battery life that your mobility scooter has the better it is going to perform and last when going uphill.

Below I have listed in no particular order, three heavy duty models that I consider the best mobility scooters to climb uphill.

The Afiscooter S4 by AFIKIM is not only an excellent heavy duty mobility scooter but it is also the most luxurious of the three recommendations. Engineered in Israel, The Afiscooter S4 comes highly recommended. It’s big body is able to sustain quite a bit. Holding up a maximum weight capacity of 450 lbs the Afiscooter S4 is a mobility scooter that maneuvers very well and has an incredible climbing grade of 11.3 degrees making it somewhat similar in performance to the other two models mentioned, however the Afiscooter S4 has a rear suspension allowing it to provide plenty of torque when driving up hill, some may say it doesn’t have as much power or torque as the other two scooters due to it being only a rear and not a full suspension but in my opinion it is just as powerful and capable of performing under pressure.
