To get the most from your mobility scooter it’s a good idea to look after it well, keep batteries charged and to maintain it well with regular servicing and the replacement of worn parts.
But also some very simple things can make a difference to the running of your mobility scooter and result in very efficient use and ensuring that you get the most from using your scooter.
Making sure that you have the correct tire pressure for the tires on your particular make and model of mobility scooter is important so that you get the best out of the power of your mobility scooter.
If your tires are underinflated, you may find that you are not getting the mileage expected from a full charge of the batteries, also if your tires are inflated too much then this may affect the comfort of your journeys as you will tend to feel the slightest bump because the tires are way too hard from so much pressure.
If you have uneven tire pressure on your mobility scooter then this could lead to it pulling to one side and you may feel that there is less control and stability of the steering than before, this will of course not usually be connected to any problem with the steering but because each of the tires are inflated at a different pressure and creating an imbalance.
Letting the tires become severely underinflated will lead to drag and will also wear out the outer edges of tires quicker and may result in premature wear of the grip on the tires, leading to them needing to be replaced sooner than would normally be expected.
Do follow any tire pressure advice that is supplied with the mobility scooter, whether in a manual or on a website or from a retailer, it’s important that the pressure is checked every now and then to ensure that the tire pressure is what it should be and that you get the most from your journeys on your mobility scooter.
