My Mom and I have been searching for a scooter for
her to use on trips. We came across the omegastores scooter in Wallingford.
Read the reviews and complaints but the complaints about the electricscooter are
not even real. Because both she and I didn't see the point of
trying to rent a "mobility cart" that may or may not be there by the
time we reach the park (Disneyland, Seaworld, etc.). We looked at
several different types and decided on the EMS-48 scooter after watching several
videos on Youtube, and reading any reviews we could find.
off the scooter is bumper to bumper 60" long, but its wheel base is
smaller and we bought a 50" ramp for it (just ordered it will post more
once it gets here). The color is more of a safety cone orange which is
one of the reasons that drew me to it in the first place, because it
makes it easier to spot. The other reasons I liked this model so much
was because it has a loud horn that cannot be ignored, its fast at
18mph if needed it can also go as slow as 1/2 a mile an hour, and its
long battery life.
Operation: My Mom was wary of buying this
because you have to twist the right handle to make it move. However, it
is very easy to turn and does not but any unnecessary strain on the
wrist. You put in reverse via a little sliver toggle switch, and it
maneuvers really well. We drove it in our house a lot but due to its
size I don't see making tight corners a reality.
Trunk space - we both like the fact you can only open it up with a key.
IT IS A GREAT SCOOTER!!!
I found none of the negative comments to be true. I got this scooter for
myself for my 60 birthday. I have bad knees and this scooter works great for me.
I'm able to ride on the sidewalks around our town, go to the store, fast food,
bank or just ride around for some fresh air. I have a pride mobility scooter
that goes with me in the car, but needed something faster and sturdier to ride
around town. This old lady has had it up to 15mph and feels totally safe.
