Nuts & Bolts…Here’s What You Need To Know

TrackMaster machines are designed to explore the world around You!

They are a power mobility unit much like traditional wheelchairs, but our machines have a track base intended for a variety of off-road use to navigate sand, dirt, mud, gravel, and other challenging outdoor surfaces where conventional powered wheelchairs can’t go. A TrackMaster is more aggressive than a typical wheeled mobility system. This includes the smoothness of the ride and how it maneuvers over traditional power chairs.

Designed with a sporty approach, TrackMaster machines allow individuals the opportunity to explore parks, wooded areas, hiking trails, beaches, and other rugged terrain challenges that conventional wheeled mobility devices cannot manage.

It is important to know that a TrackMaster is not meant to be confused with or used as an ATV, UTV, or other devices typically used in deep mud, deep water, deep sand, deep snow or deep gravel. Excessive towing weight, dragging or pulling of debris such as logs, or un-wheeled objects is NOT advised and may damage the machine.

TrackMaster products are designed with one goal in mind….to get the spirited individual off the beaten path!
