My dad had to get a wheelchair after being diagnosed with cancer 6 years ago. He had his leg amputated from the knee down and was in a need of a wheelchair. He used it everyday and never had any complaints. It was easy to put the wheel locks on and they work great. It was easy for him to push himself and even carry groceries.

It folds up and it fits into a trunk very easily. It isn't very heavy so you don't need a whole slew of people to lift it. The foot pedals go on and come off easily. The chair is very cushy and comfortable. The wheels are very smooth and don't get bothered too much by bumps.

When my dad passed away in 04 it was moved to the garage until just recently. We decided to bring it in clean it up and try to find a new owner for it. For being in our garage that whole time it has a few rust spots here and there but nothing major. The brakes still work just fine and the seat and back are just like new. The wheels turn smoothly just as when he used it.

It also has withstood a medium sized dog riding in it :) My girl used to love to play in her grandpa's wheelchair even though we got in trouble for it. Her nails never was able to scratch it and if she got it dirty wiping it off was easy. I'm really hoping someone will have a use for it and maybe we can make someones Christmas a little easier.
