Smooth performance and excellent features
The Panther scooter is a sophisticated 4-wheeler, ready to adjust to your every need. The scooter was designed with the purpose to excel in performance.
Design & Comfort
The first thing that is noticeable about the Panther is its design. The Panther has a modern look, with polished 14" mag-style wheels, as a part of the whole package of features. Additionally, Drive Medical managed to design an excellent four-wheeler that besides the good looks it’s also exceptionally comfortable. The scooter comes with a 20" or 22" wide Captain's Seat, height adjustable, featuring a fold-down, reclining backrest with adjustable headrest.
With the dual rear view mirror, handling your scooter in traffic will no longer be a problem. The Panther has excellent visibility and can easily be used thanks to the lighting package that consists of parking lights, a headlight and the turn signals. You can easily control this through the excellent control panel this scooter has. This includes the speed, the throttle, and the lights.
The brakes on the scooter are electromagnetic, combined with a hand brake as well. For additional control over the scooter, Drive Medical designed a delta tiller with ergonomic throttle control. This feature is excellent for users with limited dexterity.
As mentioned before, when it comes to performance, this Drive Medical scooter is one of the best choices you can make.
The traveling speed is 8mph, which is not the fastest, but it’s still faster than the walking speed, which is excellent. This will allow you to effortlessly run your errands around town. However, what makes the Panther even better is that it can travel up to 25 miles in a single charge.
On the other hand, this scooter is not one the lightest one on the market, as it weighs 264 lbs. That makes it difficult to handle and transport.
The maximum weight capacity in the other hand is 425.00 lbs., which is approximately the market’s average.
Great for long rides and outdoor terrains
The Panther 4-wheel scooter is designed to make outdoor traveling easier. The high ground clearance, rear anti-tip wheels, and pneumatic tires provide the users with a smooth ride even over a bumpy terrain. The fact that it can go for a long distance with one battery charge makes it the perfect chose for a long ride around town.
If that isn’t convincing enough for you, it’s important to know that the scooter is highly adjustable in any aspect, including:
The 20" or 22" wide Captain's Seat is height adjustable and can rotate to 45° for easier getting on and off the scooter.
The padded armrest on the seat can be adjusted accordingly to your height, as well as the width and angle you prefer.
The Panther 4-wheel has a delta tiller handle, with an ergonomic throttle that is perfect when it comes to users with limited agility.
Batteries and Charging
As with any other scooter, a proper care of the batteries will allow you to use the Panther for years. Its batteries are type 50AH which are perfect for many applications due to their properties and long-lasting nature. With Panther, users will be able to travel up to 25 miles on a full battery.
In order to use them properly, it is advised to fully charge the scooter before you use it for the first time from 8 to 12 hours. Then, after the battery has spent half of its capacity, do the same again. After this, depending on how much you use the scooter, the charging is different. For example, for a more regular use, such as on a daily basis, you should charge it as soon as you’ve stopped using it and leave it on the charger until the following day. On the other hand, if you use it less frequently, or every once in a while, it’s enough to charge it once a week for 10 to 14 hours.
Make sure you plan your drive and don’t forget to charge your batteries. If the little light on your battery indicator is flashing red, it means that the scooter ran out of battery.
If needed, you can add the following accessories to your scooter:
Additional holders – for an oxygen tank, a cane or a drink.
The three are all different accessories that simplify the use of the scooter and increase its overall performance. Depending on your needs, you can store and secure your cane or your oxygen tank as well as always keep a cool drink near you.
An armrest bag
If you want to rest your arm this is the perfect solution, making it a great addition. The armrest bag has four pockets and drinks holders.
A scooter cover
The customizable cover will protect your scooter when you are not using it, keeping the dirt away.
Trailer or Backpack
If you have more baggage or require additional comfort, you can add a trailer to your scooter which will allow you to also transport your belongings with you. It’s excellent for grocery shopping. Besides, it has a removable cover that will protect your cargo. On the other hand, you can also include a backpack, as excellent seat-back storage for your smaller items.
In case of a problem, you also get an excellent warranty. Drive Medical provides you with a lifetime limited warranty that covers the product frame, seat post, the platform, and the frame welds. On the other hand, you get a 2-year warranty on the motor assembly and the electronic controller. In case something goes wrong with your batteries, you can also have them repaired for free as long as it’s within 12 months of purchase.
Other device pieces not mentioned above, are not included in the warranty, as they are warranted to be free of defects.
