The Pride Mobility Z-Chair is a mobility scooter weighing 83 pounds (37.6 kilograms) when you factor in the weight of the batteries. It can support passengers weighing up to 250 pounds (113.4 kilograms). Even though it is not terribly heavy, as other powered mobility devices in Pride Mobility's range, you will still need to purchase and install a lift on your car if you are going to be transporting it long distances. In terms of turning radius, you may be limited in your ability to maneuver through tight places, as the Pride Mobility Z-Chair has a relatively large turning radius at 26.75 inches (67.9 centimeters). A couple of the most limiting factors of the Pride Mobility Z-Chair is its max speed at only 3.5 miles per hour (5.6 kilometers per hour) and its range, able to only go as far as 8 miles (12.9 kilometers) on a full battery charge. For the retail price of $2999, it may not be completely worth it, as there are other, more affordable scooters on the market that are equipped with better features and specifications. Let's see how it stacks up against the EZ Lite Cruiser Standard and HD Heavy Duty Models:
