A Little About Myself

71 year old male, semi retired with Neuropathy in my feet and ancles, arthritis in both knees an undergoing treatment for Multiple Myeloma.

Pros

Comfortable seat, small turning radius, nicely constructed. First unit to arrive had several issues. No back up b3eper, as ordered, leftward tilt to the seat last. After I brought these dificiencies to companies attention, Golden Technologies sent me a second scooter abd had the first one picked up by their local contract dealer.

Cons

The company is not supporting the scooter with touch up paint. I wanted to paint a minor scratch and they sent me on a Magical Mystery Tour for nail polish that was no longer available. All service could say is they are working on the issue. When you spend this much for a product, support by the manufacturer becomes very important.

Service & Delivery

USM is where you should buy your scooter. Very nice, professional employees.
Overall very satisfied. Asked about it wherever I go. I am more attractive to handicapped women astride my scooter.

Not For A Senior In A Nursing Home

Pros

excellent
This Golden Companion GC-240 3-wheel scooter was purchased August 4, 2014 for my Mom who is in a nursing home. After using this scooter for 5 months I have to say, "DO NOT BUY THIS SCOOTER IF YOUR LOVED ONE IS IN A NURSING HOME." I can't emphasize this enough. It doesn't stop fast enough to allow for other people who step or roll out in front of you quickly. This might be ok if you use this at home or in a park, but anywhere there are a lot of people this scooter is a disaster. Even a nurse who was moving the scooter put a hole in the wall of Mom's room, so it's not just Mom. Even when I am moving it to put it beside the bed, I have to be very careful using a stop and go maneuver to avoid hitting the night stand. Tight spaces are a problem. There is such a lag on when you let go of the tiller to when it actually stops. And I did read one review that mentioned this but I didn't realize what a big problem it was going to be. Delta Tiller-Not a good thing for a senior. Because both handles can make it move forward and backward, it is just too confusing for a senior to learn. If your loved one only has use of one arm it would be good in that situation as you can go forward and backward using the handle on either side. Also, you have to let go of one side of the tiller to make a tight turn because the tiller is so big and my Mom is a small woman who can't reach that far with both arms when she is trying to make a tight turn. My Mom won't let go. She has to hold on with both hands. So it is a long series of back and forth, back and forth, back and forth for her to turn a tight corner. The scooter can make a tight turn if your loved one has long enough arms or can just use one hand to turn it. I would never buy one with a delta tiller again. The handle to swivel the seat is odd in that you push down on it instead of pull up. So you have to be able to reach that far. And the EZ Reach tiller adjustment lever to move the tiller back and forth is too hard for her to pull. The other bells and whistles (headlight, rear lights, etc) aren't needed so don't pay more to get those things. Even though the brochure says it is carpeted, it is not. It has a rubber mat on the floorboard. I even called them about that and they laughed it off saying they haven't used carpet in years. Looking today it still references their under carpet trouble shooting guide. Not a big deal, just something to know. Something I didn't realize when I read about it was what an off-board battery charger was. It is a heavy box that sits on the floor that has its own off and on button that you are supposed to turn off when you are not charging the scooter. In a nursing home, it is impossible to ask every staff member who might be assisting my Mom to turn it off when they unplug the charging cord from the scooter. My Mom can't do it so it stays on 24/7. I don't know what problem this is going to cause, but the old Rally scooter she borrowed did not have this complication. You just plugged it in from the wall plug to the scooter. There was no additional box to deal with. Really you need to be a tall, strong person with quick reflexes to operate this scooter. I am sure it is a good scooter for the right person in the right situation. If your senior is small, gets easily distracted or doesn't learn new things easily, I would not recommend it. And it certainly doesn't work well in a nursing home as there are so many people and the bedrooms are so small. My Mom had used an old Rally scooter that another resident had and she had no problems with it. They don't even make Rally's anymore so I couldn't get that one. So I hope this review helps someone else make a better decision that I did. I had to order it online as it wasn't available locally so there was no chance to test drive it and there aren't many reviews online. It's a lot of money for something that doesn't fit the situation.
