Pride Mobility Backpacker AVP Lift Review
If you have any sort of wheelchair, power chair, or scooter it can be difficult to move these vehicles to different locations because they are so heavy. If you intend to drive to a location and use your mobility vehicle you need a way to get them to the location. A lift is a perfect option to help you move your vehicle to a new location. Here's a little bit about the Pride Mobility Backpacker AVP Lift which we look at in this review.
Why a Lift?
The main reason that we want to use a lift to move your power chair, scooter, or electric wheelchair is that it enables you to move the vehicle to a new location, so you can use it at that location. the lift allows you to take the vehicle in and out of your car. These devices are very easy to operate once they have been installed in your vehicle. You can even have the place where you bought your mobility device installed the lift for you in your vehicle so that you can use it whenever you want.
This lift is specifically engineered for power chairs and scooters. You'll be able to store your vehicle inside your car. When your mobile device is stored, it's protected from the elements. This device is easy to load and unload your mobility device. It's made with an all steel Construction and there's a very durable 12-volt motor that comes with it. There's a 2-button hand control so it's a very simple as well as reliable device to move your mobility scooter or power chair in and out of your vehicle.
It comes with an easy install device so there's not a lot of work that has to be done. This lift will fit a wide range of different power chairs and scooters. Just check with the manufacturer of your scooter or power chair to ensure that this mobility lift will work with that particular model. In general, it will work with most of them. This mobility lift will carry up to 350 lb. It will fit into an SUV with a 31-inch opening height. All you need to do to load the mobility device onto your vehicle is to drive the mobility device onto the lift and it will lift the device into your vehicle.
