Mobility Scooters in the snow
I have received an email from one of our customers asking if there is any way to use a mobility scooter in the snow?
This conjures up many mental images, mobility scooters with snow chains, 4×4 mobility scooters, scooters with skies strapped to the front wheels.
The answer is of course do NOT use your mobility scooter in the snow or on icy pavements / roads
The majority of mobility scooters are rear wheel drive, so the rear of the scooter will tend to slide sideways.
Winter Tips for Mobility Scooter Owner
- Do not go out in the cold unless absolutely nessesary.
- Keep your Mobility Scooter in the dry, in a shed, garage or under cover.
- Before storing your Mobility Scooter for long periods, ensure the tyres are fully inflated as flat tyres will crack, and fully charge your battery.
- Place a blanket over the motor and battery end of the Mobility Scooter, to prvent condensation and the battery from freezing.
- Remember to charge your scooter for at least 12 hours (over night) once a month, while you scooter is in storage. This will top up the charge and help to preserve your batterie’s life.
