Overview of the FAR-500XL Scooter and Power Chair Carrier

The FAR-500XL Scooter and Power Chair Carrier from Fold-A-Ramp has a 400 pound weight capacity, allowing this lift to transport some of the larger mobility products on the market. It also has a 60" long ramp that folds in half when not in use and the ramp can be stored flat in the carrier when it is not carrying a scooter or power chair. It is a fully manual lift that requires no motors, batteries or actuators. It has adjustment bolts for leveling and to prevent rattling and a spring-loaded locking pin that locks the ramp in place when it is folded vertically.

Securement and Safety
The FAR-500XL has multiple tie-down holes along the walls of the carrier for you to safely secure your mobility unit. It also has reflector strips for nighttime visibility and a heavy duty steel frame and platform that is powder coated for durability. 

Hitch and Specifications
The Fold-A-Ramp FAR-500XL fits any Class III hitch with a maximum hitch height of 11"-18". The platform size is 57" long and 33" wide and features 6.5" side rails. Please note the hitch pin is not included but is a standard item that can be purchased at most home improvement stores and U-Haul locations, or it may come standard with your hitch.

Absolutely wonderful.
Reviewer: B. from Calhoun, GA (caregiver)

End User Desc: My son has CP and is in a power chair. Having a dependable carrier is a must.

Strengths: The carrier is well-built. The bi-fold ramp loads the chair quickly and folds up easily and securely. I have used electric lifts in the past, and the manual is much simpler to operate. It also holds the chair more securely. I would recommend this carrier to anyone needing easy, dependable transportation.

Weaknesses: N/A

It came promptly.
Reviewer: D. from Muscatine, IA (caregiver)

End User Desc:

Strengths: This product is durable and fairly easy to put together.

Weaknesses: The only thing that we had trouble with is the hole for the screws needed to be a little bit bigger. Other than that it is wonderful.

overall good product
Reviewer: G. from Port Huron, MI

End User Desc: I am a 71 year old male, with difficulties walking due to lack of balance.

Strengths: Makes it much easier to transport my scooter which I now have to rely on

Weaknesses: Scooter should be backed on to equalize the weight on the carrier. One more hole could be drilled in hitch 5 inches closer to the carrier end which does help stop the sway when carrying the scooter
