Thread: Ricon Clearway lift problems?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Ricon Clearway lift problems?

    I'm buying a new van with a Ricon Clearway lift. Any problems or concerns?
    What about snow, ice and below zero temp problems? I'd really appreciate any feedback!

    I have a clearway model #s1231 and it is a rattle trap,the hydraulics squeal terribly, and the ricon door closers suck! Would never have another one. My Braun was much quieter and the door closers worked 1000 times beter.

    When did you buy it? Has it ever failed you? Thanks alot!

    Was talked into it by Mobility Works once installed they just kept insuring me it could be fixed, 1 year later and doors still dont shut real tight. Yes it has failed me more in the 1 year than my braun did in 7 years, twice in a rain storm I was stuck half way up, had to manually raise it to get in van. If I had a choice I would change to a Braun.

    Ya it's been an ongoing hell. This slide-away is junk. I'm just trying not to get screwed again when I buy the new van.
