How fast does the Shoprider Dasher 4 go?

At full speed, you can reach 3.8 mph top speed.

If a faster top speed is important to you, please check out our collection of recreational mobility scooters, pre-selected for faster speeds.

How long do the Shoprider Dasher 4 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?

The answer depends on the user’s weight as well as the kind of terrain the scooter is operated upon.

Please take these manufacturer figures with a grain of salt, bearing in mind manufacturers may test their scooters in optimum conditions you won’t find in real life.

For a Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter, the batteries last: Up to 7.5 miles.

The lifetime of your Shoprider Dasher 4 batteries is approximately 2 years, but very much depends on how much you use your scooter and whether you take good care of your batteries.

The cost of replacing a set of Shoprider Dasher 4 batteries is approximately $429

What kind of batteries are used in the Shoprider Dasher 4?

This mobility scooter uses sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries. These batteries are maintenance free, meaning you don’t need to add water to them or anything like that.

They happily stay under their shroud for the duration of their lifetime and you shouldn’t need to do anything to them at all.

Lithium-ion batteries are not used, primarily due to cost. With batteries expiring after 2-3 years, the cost of replacing lithium batteries for a machine this size would run into several thousand dollars, vs. gel-cell which is more around the $500 mark.

Will the Shoprider Dasher 4 seat fit me?

This scooter’s seat width is 18”.

This is a great seat size for most people and is more generous than most standard/travel mobility scooters.

If in doubt, we recommend measuring a chair in your house that you're comfortable on, to compare sizes.

How much weight can the Shoprider Dasher 4 carry?

The weight capacity of the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter is 250 lbs.

What kind of ground clearance does the Shoprider Dasher 4 have? Is it good for paths and trails?

The Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter has 1.5 inches of ground clearance. It will cope on grass, gravel and dirt paths, but there are other mobility scooters which would perform better in this area.

Explore our all-terrain mobility scooter collection.

How big is the Shoprider Dasher 4? Will it fit indoors and how sharp does it turn?

The Shoprider Dasher 4 is fine for indoor use, provided you have a large home. Three-wheeled models are better at turning in tight spaces than 4 wheeled models.

If you have a compact home, contact us to see if this could work.

This scooter will work in commercial indoor settings such as stores and supermarkets.

The turning radius of the Shoprider Dasher 4 is 37”.

Yes! We offer an armrest saddle bag free with every Shoprider purchase.

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 Shoprider Dasher 4?

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.

What do I need to do to purchase the Shoprider Dasher 4 online/over the phone?

To purchase over the phone, simply call our toll-free number 1-888-233-5563 and we can help you from there.

You will also receive an email confirmation, detailing the item you brought and the price you paid. The email will come from: Your email confirmation will contain instructions regarding delivery, please read these carefully. As soon as your item ships, we will send you an email containing a tracking link. Clicking on this link will allow you to track the shipping progress of your scooter. If you chose standard, curbside delivery at checkout: The shipping company will call you to schedule a delivery appointment - you don’t have to take the first day available - you can delay receiving your scooter for a couple of days if that works better for you. We will also provide you with their number so you can call to preemptively arrange an appointment, or incase they fail to call you. The shipping company will call you usually within an hour of delivery, to let you prepare yourself at the curbside nearest to your home. The truck (very often an 18-wheeler) will deposit your scooter on the curbside, on a wooden crate. For more info on unpacking, see the question below “How does my product arrive, is any setup required?” If you choose White Glove Delivery at checkout: The scooter will be sent to a technician in your area for setup. Once they have set it up (usually 1-2 business days), they will give you a call to arrange delivery. You have paid for a premium service, so here you can really ask the tech to deliver at any time that suits you, delay for some time if you aren’t ready for delivery, etc. If in doubt, just call us at 1-888-233-5563.

Shipping, Warranty & Returns


How long from the time of order until I get my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter?

This very much depends on two factors: the stock status above and how far you are from California, where most Shoprider Dasher 4 scooters ship out from. Bear in mind, different colors of the same model can have different stock statuses. The stock status for this scooter can be seen just under the product title at the top of the page.
  • This item can ship out as soon as the same business day the order is placed. Once shipped out, you can expect a transit time 4-5 business days.Please note these are indicative times and can vary based on how far you are from the supplier warehouse and the volume of orders being received. Also note that upgrades or extra accessory additions to your order may require extra time for installation.
  • If a Shoprider Dasher 4 scooter is showing LEAD TIME with a number of weeks indicated, the estimated ship out time is that lead time plus standard ship out and transit time indicated in the paragraph above.

    You can always contact us for more details at 1-888-233-5563 or live chat with an agent by clicking here.

    Please note, we have excellent relationships with our suppliers/manufacturers. If we are showing an item as having a lead time, it’s almost certainly the same for other dealers who might not have the most up-to-date information on the websites and may show the item as having a lead time.

  • If a Shoprider Dasher 4 scooter is showing OUT OF STOCK above, please contact us for more details. You can call us at 1-888-233-5563 or live chat with an agent by clicking here.

    Please note, we have excellent relationships with our suppliers/manufacturers. If we are showing an item as out of stock, it’s almost certainly the same for other dealers who might not have the most up-to-date information on the websites and may show the item as in stock.

Why are there such long lead times on some mobility scooters?

Covid has dealt a horrible blow to pretty much every industry on the planet. Right from mining materials to processing them to the factories that produce parts, shipping and freight companies - at every stage of the chain there are workforce shortages and severe delays.

My scooter is showing a long lead time above. Why should I buy a scooter now if in any case I won’t get it right away?

Unfortunately, the way things are nowadays, with delays across the entire supply chain, if you wait until there is no lead time on your scooter, you might end up waiting forever. As soon as new stock comes in, it is assigned to orders that were already placed, sometimes weeks in advance. We don’t know how soon the situation will get better - and it may actually get worse before getting better again.

For this reason, customers are placing their orders as soon as they are able, to be placed on the list for as soon as the next scooters are ready to ship.

Where will my scooter ship from?

Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooters generally ship from the main warehouse in Torrance, CA. In some cases, orders for the East Coast are shipped from a warehouse in the vicinity.

Who will ship my mobility scooter?

Your mobility scooter will be shipped by a freight company such as Southwest Freight Lines ForwardAir, etc. In most instances, your scooter is delivered by 18-wheeler, unless you choose white glove delivery.

How does the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobibility scooter arrive – is any setup required?

If you choose white glove delivery, your scooter will be 100% ready to ride. With standard delivery, these scooters will need some assembly. Assembly is straightforward to most people but you may need some help from a handy relative or friend.

We are always here to help you over the phone with assembly.

You may need to:

  • Install the batteries.
  • Put the seat on its post.
  • The wheels might have some air let out for safety during transit. You should top them up to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer in the user’s manual.
  • The tiller may be folded down too. Simply move the tiller into position as per the manual instructions, allowing you to raise it to driving position.
  • Mirrors may need to be screwed into the handlebars.

How do I book a delivery appointment slot for my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter?

The shipping company delivering your scooter will call you to arrange delivery. We will also give you their number so you can call them to preemptively arrange an appointment.

What if I miss my delivery appointment slot for my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter?

If you miss your delivery appointment, the shipping company will usually take your scooter back to their local terminal in your area and try to reschedule an appointment. There is usually no charge for one extra appointment. Please contact us to keep us in the loop if you do miss your appointment so we can ensure the scooter isn’t sent all the way back to the place of origin.

What if my order hasn’t arrived by the time it was supposed to?

Especially since Covid, which made the truck driver shortage issue even worse than it was, your shipment might be delayed. If this happens, please call us 1-888-233-5563, or the number of the shipping company we provide you with so you can get an update on your shipping status.

What happens if my order for an Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter is damaged?

  • When your scooter arrives, do not sign any forms until you have opened the boxes and ascertained that everything is as it should be.
  • If the external boxes are damaged, make sure to note this next to your signature. Make sure to inspect the contents before signing.
  • If your scooter is damaged in a way that the entire scooter needs to be replaced, just refuse the entire delivery.
  • If your scooter is damaged in a way that a spare part needs to be sent out and installed (eg a broken mirror), accept the delivery, and list any damaged items next to your signature.
  • If you find damage after having signed for delivery without any damage notes, this can be really problematic as the shipping company may try to shift the blame onto you. This is why it’s important to check for damage, especially if the outside boxes are damaged.

What happens if my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter breaks down?

If your scooter malfunctions, please contact us.

Sometimes we are able to troubleshoot with you over the phone to fix the issue. In other cases, it’s a matter of shipping out a simple part, say if a knob needs replacing, under warranty conditions.

If necessary, we will send out a technician to your home to repair your scooter within 1 year of purchase, or longer if you purchased further warranty plans in the “Options & Upgrades” section on this page. This includes everything besides wear & tear (such as seat wear, flat tire etc.) and the batteries, which are covered for 1 year by their manufacturer.

Depending on your location, it might take a few days to locate a local technician, arrange an appointment etc. This warranty service is not intended as an emergency breakdown service. If you are stuck and need urgent help, call 911.

Please note, it’s really important we don’t send technicians out for nothing, so to be open with you from the start, we will let you know that if a technician comes out for a problem which isn’t under warranty or was a user error, you may be charged for this visit.

Do I call you or the manufacturer if my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter breaks down?

Contact us before contacting the manufacturer.

How long does the warranty on Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooters last for? What’s included/excluded from the warranty?

We offer a free in-home warranty of 1 year from date of purchase on all Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooters.

This includes everything besides wear & tear (such as seat wear, flat tire etc.) and the batteries, which are covered for 1 year by their manufacturer.

What can I do after the warranty period? Can I get spare parts for Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooters? Who repairs these scooters and where?

After the warranty period, you are still welcome to contact us at any time.

Parts are available through us or the manufacturer, though you will be charged for these.

If you need someone to install parts or for other labor services post-warranty, the same local technicians that repair your scooter under warranty can do so at a charge post-warranty.

Technicians are available throughout the contiguous USA.

Daily Operation & Transportation

Daily Operation

Is the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter easy to drive? How does acceleration work? How does braking work?

The Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter is super easy to drive and control.

Remember, this is a scooter which was designed from scratch for seniors and those with disabilities. It takes into account that you might have slower reaction times and has automatic braking whenever you let go of the throttle.

It also features slow-speed mode for confined areas or whilst you’re building up your driving skills and want to go a little slower.

Acceleration/reverse is achieved by a lever in the handlebars, and braking is automatic when you let go of the brakes.

Due to the safety automatic brakes which kick in every time you let go of the throttle, your driving might seem a little jerky at first, but most people catch on very quickly and learn to use the throttle and brakes in a way that gives a smooth ride.

I only have use of my left hand. Can the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter work for left handed users? Can the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter be operated with one hand?

This scooter uses wig-wag throttle acceleration, meaning you can control it with one hand, without any modifications needed.

Can I ride the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter in the rain, snow, wind and hot sun?

  • Rain: It’s OK and safe if you get caught in the rain once in a while, or go through an occasional puddle, but you should try to avoid a trip if you know it’s going to rain.
  • Snow and ice: We cannot take responsibility for using the scooter in these kinds of weather conditions.
  • Cold weather: Fine, though it does negatively impact the battery health and lifetime.
  • Wind: Generally not an issue unless very strong winds that could tip the scooter over. If you have a mobility scooter with a canopy, remember, very strong winds can act as a sail to tip over your scooter.
  • Hot sun: No issue as far as the scooter is concerned. Remember to take along ample hydration!

Do the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter batteries need maintenance?

This mobility scooter uses maintenance-free batteries which do not need any care until they die, after around 2 years of use.

How often should my Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter be inspected?

It’s a good idea to have your scooter checked once a year by a qualified technician.

Call us 1-888-233-5563 to get details on a local technician in your area.

You should also call us or a local tech if you hear strange noises coming out of your scooter.

How many years can I expect the Shoprider Dasher 4 mobility scooter to last me?

For this kind of mobility scooter, you can expect to get a lifetime of around 7 years or more.

This obviously depends on the way you take care of your scooter amongst other factors.
