This scooter has enough clearance from the ground to avoid getting stuck

I am 68 years old with multiple sclerosis. I have limited mobility and the pacesaver keeps me active. The junior has a small turning radius
Clearance, turning radius, good looking and comfortable
Should come with rear view mirror and back up lights. It has flipped when back tire hits large cracks on the street or hidden obstacles. Otherwise a nice cruiser.

User has MS and cannot use his legs at all, so the scooter is his only way of mobility.
It is made with quality.
User is a little disappointed in that this scooter is shorter than his last one and he hits his ankles on the battery case. Also, he misses his wrap-around handles on the tiller.

This is the second PaceSaver electric scooter I have owned! Beleve it or not, I have had the first one for about 20 years and it still works! However, it is time for it to retire. I chose PaceSaver for its quality and durability. I consider it to be the "work-horse" of electric scooters. While I do own a small travel electric scooter to use on trips, it is not as dependable as the PaceSaver. The PaceSaver works rain or shine, inside and outside on grass and gravel. It stops on a dime and can make tight turns. I have never had it tip on me unlike other products on the market. PaceSaver is a "Superior" product in my opinion. It does cost more than other electric scooters but,its worth it and its American made!
While I can't think of a single weakness about the product, my review is based on having used my first PaceSaver for 20 years. I haven't used my new PaceSaver yet. My first PaceSaver shipment was sent with the wrong type of seat. The second seat was damaged during shipment. The third seat was sent with hard molded arm rests rather than charcoal vinyl arm rests and the stitching in a back bottom corner of the seat was loose. I am currently waiting on the fourth shipment to arrive. Except for the damaged shipment, all other problems are quality control issues related to Leisure-lift, the manufacturer. Having said all of that, Leisure-lift the manufacturer of PaceSaver has been quick to send replacement parts and SpinLife's Customer Service is fantastic!

Plus III Jr., 3-Wheel Scooter is awesome. I absolutely love it.
sheila c. from vienna, va
I am a retired person in my 50's that's mobility impaired. I have been using PaceSavers for @ 25 years and I believe this is the best one!
The strengths of the Plus III Jr., 3-Wheel Scooter are: size, turn radius, power seat including arm and back height), able to access more areas than a larger scooter.
The weaknesses are few. The key sometimes doesn't turn on correctly & the power meter flickers back & forth & I have to turn off & turn on again (this may be due to rubber covering of the key is taller than actual key & it may not be turning key completely on so I am trying to turn at base to see if that takes care of the problem); with the height/weight of seat in the lowest position, when getting on the scooter it has a tendency to want to tip so knowing that I have to get on the scooter very carefully. The strengths far exceed the weaknesses.

Extremely limited walking because of post polio problems.
Ground clearance allows access to many more places; easy too operate and is very stable.
Seat turning is not smooth and easy; because of weak leg muscles it is hard to move feet from side-to-side over the front wheel housing

Balloon tires make an easy ride when I must cross railroad tracks to get to town plus I can now go into my yard which wasn't possible before. Good on grass & gravel.
Haven't found any yet.

I've had 3 scooters in 20 yrs of MS. They have all been pacesavers. They are the best and made in th USA.
holds up under everyday use and MADE BY ARTISANS IN THE USA.
COMPARED TO OTHER CHINESE JUNK, THEY HAVE NO WEAKNESS. sIMPLY THE BEST. AS LONG AS I NEED A SCOOTER, IT WILL BE A PACESAVER.
