    Question Chair Loaders

    I have ran across this video on youtube many, many times and was wondering if there is any kit like this that is built in the USA. I have looked and there probably is something like it out there! I just think that not having to break the chair down every time would be freakn awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUHN-...&feature=feedf
    Is there anything that people use like this? What do you use?

    Nice rig. I run a Mazda5 with a different setup, but comparible. The company is in Vancouver Canada, don't know what's involved in importing the unit into the States.

    I was looking at an Chrysler 300C but it doesn't have an back compartment like the Volvo XC70 does. I just thought the whole design for not having to break down your chair was genius! Looking for a good looking car, get up and go when it needs to! Maybe an Chrysler Pacifica. Looks, OK! I really don't know ATM. Just looking for other options on loaders for right now and will see what type of vehicle i'm wanting. but my buddy told me that I would look like a soccer mom in the Pacifica, ahhh screw you, lol. No offense to any ladies!!!! I said how am I going to look like a soccer mom, I'm a man.

    Thanks!

    Just been considering my different option now! An wagon, coupe, sedan... Not looking into getting a van. Any suggestions?

    Some years ago a lot of people had like this one here. But I don't know what happened because when I asked for one, they give me the van istead. That loader did cost 20 000 dollars but the new car did cost 250 000 dollars.
    I wonder if I heared it is not working good in cold weather. I would preferred to have my old car with that loader instead of the van who is drinking diesel for 3 dollars a litre.

    Okay, that lift is the abiloader, which is made by a uk company and works in a similar way to the robot3000, made by an Israeli company and imported into north America by kinomobility in Canada. Google everything, also search this site. The abiloader is simpler, newer tech, doesn't use robotics.

    Cool design of the Bras Robot 3000. I forgot to say that I'm in a rigid chair, not looking into a folding. Also for the loader to be on the left side of the car as the driver, like American car ty AmyK

    So the Mazda5/Abiloader combination looks awesome! I am running my '07 Rollx Caravan into the ground. How long have you had it? Any maintenance issues?

    the Mazda5 shares its drivetrain with the Mazda3, great little 4-cylinder. The 3 is outselling the Honda Civic up here, reliability is top-notch. I've had it 6 months and like it more all the time. I was an auto mechanic prior to injury and did quite a bit of research prior to purchase. Hard to find a negative comment anywhere. I found a used `07 with less than 20k miles on it, loaded. Would've liked a newer one with the 5 speed automatic, but my gas mileage is more than acceptable with the 4-spd. I call it a micro-van. I'm actually surprised more people aren't interested in it, to me it's far more appealing than a mini-van (especially with gas prices where they are)
