The fact is this topic never gets old because the options available to conquer the conundrum are limited. Previously on this topic, I did an article on tracked wheel chairs and although they are great options there are serious limitations as to what they can achieve. Whether it is limited range on the batteries in an electric model, overall cost for a gas powered style or the lack of comfort because it doesn't feel like your normal chair, the limitations are there and are very real.
So, here we are staring at the Mt. Everest of mobility limitation. There is a real need for an all terrain vehicle that is at a reasonable price and also delivers the range someone would want when going off-roading. If I could wave my magic wand and complete that punch-list, would you be interested…even just a little? I am certain your answer is - YEEEEESSSSSSS!
Right about now you are likely asking, “How do I get one?” John has a dealer in Canon City, CO. You can purchase the ATV through the dealer and ORAV Mobility then does the modification. After the mod is complete, they ship the finished product to you. At first thought, I figured the shipping would be very high. I was surprised to find out that he just recently shipped one to Wisconsin from Colorado for just under $800.
So, what if I already own one or I can get one cheap that is used and I want it modified? That’s cool. You simply have to have it shipped to them so they can modify it. If you inquire about a used one with John, he may be able to locate one for you. Just figure that your shipping costs will be double, as it will ship twice.
John was gracious in giving us a discount code when you call for an additional 10% off the cost of the modification. Be sure to use it when you call. The code = HANDICAPPEDOUTDOORS.
