    I've got a powered off road wheelchair Boma 7 now manufactured by Equal Adventure in Scotland, there is a French company called Quadrix who make a range of them. I did this http://www.cyclinguk.org/cycle/michael-bonneys-boma-7 article for a UK cycling mag recently

    For the money of a power chair, you could buy an ATV or side by side. Less crap to go wrong than all the electrics on the chairs. I use my lawn mower and haul my old Quickie rigid behind. 8 inch front wheels and 2 1/2 inch wide on 540 rims. Leather welding gloves (there are mean stickers here) to push with. I've learned to just take my time to save my shoulders.

    The Grit Freedom chair looks interesting. I haven't seen one up close yet. https://www.gogrit.us/shop/

    Any body have one, and do you like it. Looks like Colours, has the cheapest one, or the a little more expensive Invacare Top end Crossfire. Can't seem to find much else, in a standard configuration type wheelchair. One from Spain that cost a lot.
    i liked it but would not fit in my elavotor also the tires were 26 and i had to get a wedge cushion then put my jay on top of a lot of dump did not really care for the wheel in front but it was fun to use it went back as not fit in elavotor

    Thanks everybody for the great ideas. Went ahead and bought the 4 wheel drive electric chair with the scissor life under the seat. It's spendy, but hopefully will be great.
    Really wanted a seat with nothing in front of it, so I can continue working from the chair, but still get around my farm house, large yard and Orchard.
    Should be here in a week, will post some pictures.

    The specs say...

    Ground Clearance: 4.5?
    Length: 57? (with anti-tip & footplate)
    Width: 28.5? (with outdoor tires) 25.5 (with indoor tires)
    Seat to Floor Height: 19.7? (pan seat) 24" (with captain seat)

    Looks like it would be a great outdoor chair. Sorry to be blunt but a couple questions jumped into my head. Could you drive a ramp van (2002 Dodge Caravan) from the chair? Would you use it on a saltwater beach? It should go thru a 30" door no problem?

    I do not know if you can drive a van from the chair, but I don't see why not as long as you can drive straight at the steering wheel and had a way to keep the chair in one place.

    As for the salt water beach, yes that would be nice. It's about a 40 minute drive to the ocean from here. Just have to wipe the chair down real well, when done. But it's mainly for me to get around my three acres, to keep my place going. I live alone, so there's a lot to do.
