"This place put the Beast to the Ultimate test!
It was very steep!
Climbing up was no problem; it tipped back on the Wheelie bars a few times. The Beast kept it under control.
The freedoms I have now to go places and spend time with my Grandchildren are amazing!
I got a cart to pull so I can take my youngest Grandson for a ride.
He loves it!"
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!
