Choosing the right 4 wheel scooter for you doesn't need to be complicated, but there are a few factors you'll want to consider when making your choice.

  • Size of the scooter
  • Type of terrain on which you'll be driving
  • Traveling distance
  • Battery Life
  • Preferences

Body Size of the Rider

Your total body weight, height, along with the weight of items you will carry on your electric scooter are important factors in choosing a mobility scooter. The typical scooter has a weight capacity of 250-350 pounds. Riders who need a higher weight capacity can invest in a heavy-duty scooter, which can support more weight while maintaining speed. For example, the Heavy Duty Mobility Scooter EW-72 is a high performance scooter that has a maximum rider weight capacity of 500 lbs and can reach speeds of 15 MPH. Many scooters that are designed for lighter weight riders are portable. They can be taken apart and transported easily, making traveling more convenient. The Traveler Scooter has a weight capacity of 250 LBS. It can be disassembled into five pieces and easily reassembled.

Terrain Navigation

4 Wheel Mobility Scooters are better for outdoor use as they can be driven over rougher terrain, including gravel, dirt roads, wet grass, hills and even curbs. There are some factors that you will want to consider in order to find a 4 wheeled electric scooter that will best meet the navigational needs of the rider. You will want to make sure that the scooter you purchase has high enough ground clearance for areas that the rider regularly visits. The average full-size scooter has a ground clearance range of 2-4.5 Inches. However, people who spend a lot of time outdoors might be interested in scooters like the The Prowler Mobility Scooter that has a 5 inch ground clearance, which makes everything much more accessible, particularly when you aren't sure what type of terrain you'll encounter.

Travel Speed and Stability

The 4-wheel scooter is a safe option because the weight of the rider is evenly distributed over the scooter. The broad wheelbase makes the risk of tipping over very slim, even while traveling at higher speeds. The four wheels serve similar functions to that of a car. The back two wheels are for pushing the scooter forward and the front two wheels are for steering. On top of increased stability, you will also find the 4-wheeled scooters are very durable and will keep the rider safe while getting them where they need to go. The average speed for 4- wheel scooters is 5 MPH. For those looking for a higher traveling speed, the Mobility Scooter EW-54R can reach up to 15 MPH. The speed capabilities, and how long it takes to attain that speed, are some things to consider when picking the right mobile scooter.

Accessibility and Battery Power

Battery power is also something to consider when purchasing an electric scooter. For someone who enjoys traveling, the number of miles that can be covered per charge will be an important factor. The Breeze is designed for travel and can be disassembled for transport convenience and driven up to 20 miles per charge.

Preferences

One preference to consider is turning radius. Four-wheel scooters do not have the same turning radius capabilities as the 3-wheel scooters. If the rider lives in a home with many tight corners, the 3-wheel scooter may be the better choice. However, the 4-wheel scooter is the superior option for traveling in open areas.

Other preferences to be considered when investing in a mobility scooter are the type of basket, the adjustable armrests, headlights, seating options and color. Baskets come in different sizes and shapes. Armrests might have an adjustable height and be removable. If the rider will be out in the dark, headlights should be made a priority when choosing a scooter. There are a wide variety of options for those looking to buy a mobility scooter. Choose the right options for you to select the scooter that best fits your needs.
