Golden Companion Scooter Series - Articles Surfing

Many people, whether due to age, disability, or injury, are not able to move around like they used to be able to. Rather give in to their limitations, however, they instead choose to live life to its fullest and purchase a mobility scooter to make getting around much simpler and less painful. Some people only use them in their home, while others take them traveling, to the super market, or to the mall. One mobility scooter that provides excellent value and is very well built is the Golden Companion I. It is a very durable and dependable unit and is 3 wheeled which gives it a much smaller turn radius.

The Golden Companion I is a very affordable and reliable mobility scooter. It offers the most features as well as the most functions. These features make this a great buy. Safety and quality is the number one concern at Golden and this philosophy carried through to this mobility scooter. The control panel is very easy to read and includes easy to access light and horn buttons and a keyed starter. It also has state of the art self diagnostics indicators that utilizes flashing light emitting diodes to transmit meaningful codes to the user. These codes make it easy for the owner or a technician to diagnose any problems that may arise. Some other safety features include a special free wheel safety brake which engages when the unit is stopped and prevents the scooter from rolling. In addition the Golden Companion I is engineered in a manner that ensures that the scooter will not unexpectedly move when the power is cut on. This safety feature means that if you have your hand on the throttle and turn the scooter on it will not unexpectedly move or jump.

The Companion utilizes a very bright headlight and countered grips that are shorter than traditional mobility scooters. This makes it very easy to maneuver and use the scooter. In addition there is a bright tail light for added visibility. One of the great things about the Golden Companion I is the adjustable tiller. The tiller refers to the steering controls and the bar that connects them to the base of the scooter. The tiller is completely adjustable so it is easy to find the most comfortable and ergonomic position for the handle bars. A removable carpet, similar to that found in fine automobiles, makes it very easy to keep the base of the mobility scooter clean and provides a non-skid surface on the scooter.

A 3 Amp battery charger ensures that the Golden Companion I will receive a quicker and stronger charge than many models currently on the market. There is also a Sleep Mode which turns the scooter off even if you forget to. Many off brand scooters have many issues with their control boards getting too hot. The Golden Companion I addressed this problem and also made it a snap to switch out the control board so upgrading is much simpler.

Whether you are looking for a mobility scooter to get around the house or if you are ready to go to Disney World, the Golden Companion I is one of the most dependable and reliable models on the market. Engineered with safety and reliability in mind it will provide many years of quality service.
