Why won’t my mobility scooter go uphill?

Your mobility scooter might not go uphill because the incline may exceed the scooter’s maximum capability, or it may have a mechanical issue.

If the hill’s steepness is more than what the scooter is designed to handle, it won’t be able to climb it. Some scooters are built for flat surfaces and might not have the power or features needed for steep inclines.

Aside from the hill’s steepness, there could be other reasons, such as worn-out parts, a low battery, or issues with the motor, that affect the scooter’s ability to go uphill. If you find that the hill should be within your scooter’s capabilities and it’s still struggling, it might be wise to consult with the manufacturer or a technician who can diagnose the problem and help you find a solution.
