The chair appears to be well made and durable. I love the power lift. I can do so many more things now that I reach so many more places. It is worth the additional cost. Using the joystick definitely takes a little practice, but once I got used to it, I was amazed at the maneuverability. The turn radius is great in tight spaces.
I wish the seat could be lowered. I am 5’8”, which is not that tall, and I cannot just sit down and be fully to the back of the seat. I am seated only on the front of the seat and need to use my arms to lift myself back in the chair. That is not easy for me. The footplate also needs to be adjustable (raised or lowered) versus just angle.
