Key Features of the ST4D Mobility Scooter:

A Road Worthy Scooter

As a class 3 scooter, this version of the ST4 is legally allowed to travel on the roads thanks to its increased upper speed of nearly 8mph.

This is the real key difference between this model and its twin, as whilst the ST4E is a top of the range pavement scooter, this version can travel further and faster which means you can take this scooter from your front door to wherever you like.

If you live within a reasonable distance to your high street, you will have the option when using the ST4D of going on the pavement (which is more recommended for your safety) or using the road if it is safe to do so.

Should you do decide to take it onto the road you must ensure that you are completely confident in the controls of the scooter, that you obey all traffic laws and that you are constantly aware of your surroundings and other road users. For this reason only an advanced user should take it on the road.

Should you do decide to take it on the pavement (and you certainly could with ease because the overall dimensions are virtually identical to its class 2 twin), you must switch it to ‘pavement mode’ by physically turning a switch on the tiller.

The reason for this is because you are only legally allowed to travel at a maximum speed of 4mph on the pavement, and the low speed switch will ensure that you cannot exceed this speed.

Great Safety Features

As dictated by current guidelines there are certain features which must be found on a class 3 scooter as standard, and you can be rest assured that the ST4D contains all of these.

Firstly, the braking system is great because you don’t even need to press anything to operate the brake. The reason for this is because stopping is don using an electronic system which automatically engages the brake unless you are operating the controls.

Another feature which will help you stay safe are the front and rear LED lights and indicators which will help to make you visible in the dark, let you see upcoming obstacles and let other users, both on the road and on public footpaths what your upcoming intentions to turn are. We strongly recommend that you avoid using the scooter on the road in the dark.

To further help ensure that your scooter is up to spec and that you are as safe as possible, there is also a rear view mirror to allow you to quickly glance behind you to make you more aware of upcoming obstacles coming behind you, reflectors and hazard warning lights.

More Power To You

As a class 3 scooter, you will be avoiding the need to take it apart and take it with you in a car because they are designed to be used to take you wherever you need to go directly from your home.

For this reason, they can afford to be heavier and more robust, including the battery pack and on the ST4D there are 2 x 12 volt 50Ah batteries which allows you to travel up to a huge 26 miles.

This figure of course is dependent on a wide variety of features, which includes the load weight on the scooter itself, how well the battery has been maintained, the age of the battery and the type and gradient of terrain on which it will be ridden.

Fully Adjustable For Comfort

Due to the fact that you are going to be seated on the scooter for elongated periods of time, it is vital that you are keep as comfortable as possible whilst you use it.

To help you with this you will find that the tiller (which is the steering boss on which the controls are attached) can be easily adjusted to help ensure that the controls can be swivelled around to meet your hands naturally.

To help you get on and off the seat itself, the amrests can folded up and out of the way and the seat can be adjusted so that you can get onto the scooter from a standing position.

You simply need to turn the chair to face outwards, lower yourself carefully onto it until you are seat and hold onto the controls and swivel yourself in place.

Ensure that firstly you perform this on a level piece of ground with the scooter turned off and secondly that you are definitely locked into the driving position before you set off.

As a final note on the controls, they are the delta style handlebars which are designed to prevent hand fatigue as you ride on the scooter for an elongated period of time as they allow you to lay your hands in different positions whilst still being able to use the controls.

This style of handlebar is especially beneficial for a user with limited grip.
