Verified Customer - Ranger Quattro
On road, off road the Quattro takes me in comfort, dependability, and utmost style!
Excited about having this forum to tout the massive change my new Ranger Quattro has engendered in my life!!!
I have been a T5 Complete paraplegic since 1991. I have no sensation or control from the upper chest down so I have been confined to manual wheelchairs since then. Nevertheless I prided myself in staying as fit as possible and wheeled miles each day as part of my fitness
routine. Unfortunately I have suffered some setbacks and over a year and a half ago my health further deteriorated when I developed a condition called Charcot's Joint. As such my independent mobility ended and I had to research the market for a powered alternative. Since I am a disabled veteran, the VA offered me a variety of their powered options but every unit was large, heavy, and unsightly. I did, however, find a number of more portable powered chairs that resembled my manual sport chair. I will attest to the fact that the Quattro is easily the most structurally sound and efficient of all the chairs I analyzed!
VA refused to supply me the chair but, for Christmas, my friends gifted me this veritable lifechanger! Now I am regaining my freedom. I am at the fitness center regularly. I go shopping with my daughter and I race against my granddaughter! Recently my family took me to Monterey and Pacific Grove - we walked and wheeled everywhere! Never once did I need a charge and I can state unequivocally - no hill bested the Quattro!!!
I LOVE this chair. Although rugged and substantial, my daughter can fold it and toss it in the back of my Mazda 2 or her Fusion Hybrid (even in its downsized trunk).
By the way - more people have stopped to ask about the Quattro!!! I should become a sales rep. Lol!!!
Thanks again for your excellent durable chair. On road, off road the Quattro takes me in comfort, dependability, and utmost style!

ABSOLUTELY would recommend this powerchair.
Verified Customer - Ranger D09-S XL
I got my D09-S XL and it has allowed me to be able to get outside my house whenever I want to. It is easy to navigate and the ability to easily fold up and put in the trunk of car has opened numerous things to be able to do. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 250 lbs and the chair is comfortable to use. I also am well pleased with the person I dealt with (AL) when ordering product and after receiving for taking care of a problem I had. To sum it up ABSOLUTELY would reccomend this powerchair.

I am a diabetic with constant ulcers on the bottom of my feet. This wheelchair wIll allow me to go places that I have avoided for a long time. The mall, Flea markets, and amusement parks just to name a few. I am 6‘1“ and weigh about 320 pounds and I have no problems fitting in the seat or getting in and out of the wheelchair. The chair is easy to use and folds just like advertised. I love my Porto Mobility Ranger Wheelchair and would recommend it to anyone needing a portable wheelchair.
Update: 5/1/19 Traveled to Florida for business and had no issues taking my Ranger through airport security and to the gate. You need to get a claim ticket at the gate. Folded it up right before the plane entrance, they put it on board and after landing it was awaiting for me at the plane exit, ready to unfold, jump on, and ride up the gate exit. It really travels well if you can fit your clothes in a large backpack as a carryon. I just strapped my backpack onto the back of the wheelchair when traveling through the airport. Wow what a great experience.

I have used this wheelchair for almost 3 months and it continues to impress me with the distance the dual batteries provide. I have used it most of the time in my house but on many occasions I have used it outside in grass, gravel, dirt and on my sidewalks. It handles all surfaces with ease and remains stable in pretty sharp turns at a reasonable speed. This is my fourth wheelchair and it is easily my favorite for all around use and is by far the best on uneven terrain or when there is need to go up slopes that are far steeper than any public access wheelchair ramps I have encountered. I am 73 y/o, 5'7" and weigh about 150. I believe my strength is no better than average for my age and size. I have been able to load this wheelchair by myself, although not easily, into the cargo area of my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I find it is much easier to manage with the seat cushion and batteries removed before folding when lifting into my vehicle. My only complaint is that the seat cushion, although being comfortable, is thick enough to affect the compactness when folded but not by a lot and is easily removed if desired during transport. I would definitely buy this wheelchair again.
