Track Vehicles

 

This is a continuation of the discussion started in the post, Off-road Power Wheelchair (OPW) and OPW — Clarifications and Design Plans.

 

In our previous post, we listed specifications for several off-road power wheelchairs.

This month New Mobility magazine had an interesting article on Track Vehicles.  This article included manufacturers of the wheelchairs highlighted — Action Trackchair, Tank Chair and Trackmaster.  The website for the first two included specifications of their wheelchairs but the latter did not.  However, only the Action Trackchair listed its range — 6 miles/charge, for both the Action Trackchair and the Action Trackstander.  Neither listed the load capacity (rider weight) for their track vehicles.

According to New Mobility, “[P]rices range generally from $10,000 to $15,000.”  From the Tank Chair website, both the Tankchair and the Speedster, had a starting price of $19,500.  Also, according to New Mobility, “TC Mobility [maker of the Tankchair] is now so busy manufacturing and meeting orders for vets that [the company] has decided [to] temporarily stop taking orders from private, non-vet parties.”  So this limits the options of manufacturers of track vehicles at this time!
