When you want to go fast without compromising on overall comfort, the EW-72 scooter delivers beautifully. The mobility device is able to contend with multiple terrains and easily moves along highways and pathways in both rural and urban environments.

A full lighting package onboard the device allows you to enjoy extended time outdoors. When the sun goes down, a flip of the switch provides a bright headlight with dimmer capabilities. Additionally, the EW 72 offers safety through a loud horn and alarm system along with emergency lights, brake lights, and turning signals.

Comfort has not been forgotten on the EW-72 scooter either. The single captain’s seat comfortably sits up to 500lbs. on a very supportive adjustable chair. With plenty of leg room and a sure grip floorboard, your feet can stay just as comfortable as the rest of you. Ample storage and easy to reach dash components complete the package for a comprehensive and amazingly designed mobility device.

Multi Facetted Captain’s Chair

This seat offers adjustability at every turn. Angle and height adjusted arm rests coupled with a reclining back rest ensure you have the exact setting for optimal comfort. Not only does the seat recline, it also slides forward and back to help boost your comfort level no matter what height you are.

How long do the EWheels EW-72 batteries last per charge? How many years of use can I get out of the batteries?

Battery running time per charge is measured in miles as opposed to time i.e. how many miles can a fully charged set of batteries take the scooter?

How to Purchase & What's Included

How to Purchase & What's Included

Why are mobility scooters so expensive?

We sell all our scooters at the minimum price (MAP) the manufacturer allows us to advertise for. If we advertise for cheaper, we could be prosecuted.

This means we are cheaper or at the same price as all dealers complying with the rules.

If you find another site selling for cheaper, we will price match, so long as they are within MAP.

Scooters can be expensive because of the following reasons:

The recent skyrocketing of shipping prices, coupled with rising inflation, have made these scooters significantly more expensive than they were, say one year ago.

Does Medicare/Medicaid or private insurance help pay for the EWheels EW-72?

Many heavy-duty/recreational mobility scooters do not qualify as medical devices under Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance strict rules. Though you might be disabled and using the device in a full medical sense, Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance seem to want to save as much money as they can, and do so by making the rules about which models qualify very strict.

You might have spent significant time trying to find a Medicare/Medicaid provider online, to no avail. This is because it’s actually very hard for dealers to become Medicare providers, again making it hard for patients to get free scooters, again saving the insurance money.

We don’t work with Medicare. We also do not bill private insurances directly. Some private insurances may reimburse you outside of Medicare’s framework. To check if your insurer does this, we recommend contacting them directly and asking. If they say yes, we’re happy to provide invoices/proof of purchases so you can get your money back from your insurer.

Here’s a full disclaimer with regard to Medicare/Medicaid:

Notice to Medicare/Medicaid Beneficiaries. Medicare will pay for medical equipment and supplies only if a supplier has a Medicare supplier number. Heavy Duty Mobility does not have a Medicare supplier number. Medicare will not pay for any medical equipment and supplies we sell or rent to you. You will be personally and fully responsible for payment.
