    If money wasn't an obstacle I would go with the x5 frontier by innovations in motion.

    Not too many functional both inside and good off road.

    Omegatrac= www.nextmobilitynow.com

    Yes the X-5- mobility-usa.com

    Ranger wheelchairs, 904S YUKON -www.rangerwheelchairs.com
    Not currently available in US but will be very soon.

    I have both the Omegatrac and the X-5. VA purchased both over 5 years.
    The Omegatrac outperforms the frontier handily. Air suspension and and a transmission is hard to compete against. The Omegatrac is heavy but that substantially helps to lower the center of gravity which is critical in difficult terrain and to get off the road quickly to avoid speeding log trucks.

    Search other threads like all terrain wheelchairs and such.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Thanks for the input.
    Forestranger52 I am a little concerned the omega is not 4 wheel drive. By the way I have an Ibot now it is great but it is discontinued no parts after 2013. I got it through the VA that is why I am starting now to replace the Ibot. Also, I am a graduate of Missouri U School of Forestry class of 74 however, I ended up as a general contractor.
    Thanks again all.

    None of them are 4 wheel drive. There are no 4x4 chairs practical for indoor use.

    I would not hesitate for a minute to take the Omegatrac on a construction site. I was a carpenter for may years, so I understand the difficulties.

    Now if you don't need to use it inside there are lots of options. Just remember that powering 4 knobby tires using only batteries severely limits distance traveled.

    I would really like to see if a quad could handle the gennymobility. At 17 grand, the price for going most everywhere you want ain't bad. I would like to see the VA cover both segway conversions.
