Thread: Permobil vs. Quickie powerchair

    [QUOTE=miltongm09;1878936]I actually do have the elevating so not sure why his height difference is so much. I took measurements of the 2 different chairs because I had very little extra headroom for my van. 1/4" difference[/QU
    Sounds like the cushion may make the difference.

    I have a Rovi X3 which is not very wide... just got it into a regular cruise door this past week but only went half in to see if I could because I wouldn?t have been able to get out as it was tight. Suspension is good. I have put over 1700 miles on it but I have only had to change batteries after the first 2 years and at almost 3 years I now need new tires and backrest soon but all of these things are typical wear and tear.

    It attaches/disconnects in seconds.
    It gives you some great options other than being stuck in one or the other (manual/power)
    It's about 75lbs, maybe 15 less with LiFePO batteries), so not practical for someone to lift into a trunk, etc. I made a simple hoist to load it into my wife's SUV for travel

    You KNOW your manual chair, clearances, comfort, where it will fit. The ZX1 preserves almost all of that and is a smooth running power chair.
    I got mine with <90 hrs on it for $1600 used. They come up pretty regularly.
    3.5 mph..??! Nooo thanks! Why must it be that dang slow??? That's horrible. Bad enough going 6 mph. I miss my Xterra that went 8. Bleh.
