Invacare offers a broad range of drive options including front-, center- and rear-wheel drive. Invacare claims an unrivaled commitment to extensive research and continuous improvement. However, we were surprised to find that the Invacare P9000 XDT is not much more than a manual wheelchair that has been converted to a powered unit. The Invacare P9000 XDT is quite heavy, coming in at a total weight of 142 pounds (64.4 kilograms) with battery. That is heavy considering that it is only rated to carry passengers weighing up to 250 pounds (113.4 kilograms). Another specification that is sub par is the large turning radius at 36 inches (91.4 centimeters) which can make it difficult to maneuver in tight areas, especially indoors. For the price tag of $2499, there are definitely much better, more cost effective devices out there. Let's see how it stacks up against the EZ Lite Cruiser Standard and HD Heavy Duty Models:
