Bad knees? this may not be for you

By Orange A.

from Boston, MA

Comments about : Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

Received deluxe scoot as a gift because I love to garden and have moderate arthritis in both knees. For me, getting up and down from seat and, most of all, pushing with legs to move the scoot along grassy surface while seated, caused significantly more knee pain than other gardening positions. Won't be using this again.
On the plus side, it was straightforward to assemble and seems to be a solid well made piece of equipment that moves & steers easily when pulling by handle.

Comments about : Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

I'm 64 yrs old, 6'4", 240 lbs, and I like it. It's well made and has no problem supporting me, my gardening tools, and my bad knees. I have sloping property and the scoot has a tendency to follow the physics of such conditions. A locking brake system would be nice, but I guess either a rock or one of my tools can suffice. Otherwise, it is a knee and back saver for this aging young man.

Big and comfy

By Rosie's Mom

Comments about : Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

This was the only garden seat I could find that would support my weight. The seat is big and comfy and swivels easily. The telescoping handle is great. The tires are nice a beefy, so they do not sink into soft ground. If you get this, I highly recommend the 3 1/2 bucket that fits in the side (I also bought the colander).

On the downside, my garden is not large and this is a bit much. I am on a slight incline and at one spot it wants to run away with me. The tires do not "curb" as easily as I would like, meaning I have to get off it at that point and kick the tire to get it to angle enough to prevent rolling.

Overall thoughts - If you are not BIG like me and have a small garden, I would recommend something smaller. If you are over 180 this style/size seems to be the only option. I chose this one because it was a bit less expensive and had the attachment for the bucket.

I am choosing "Yes, I would recommend" because it is great for my situation, but may not be the best choice for all.

        Recent back surgery required me to be in a sitting position to work in my gardens. This is perfect.

        I have a bad knee and thought I would not be able to garden, but with the higher seat and the handle I am able to get myself off of it.

        Comments about : Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

        This is a great product and serves my needs well. I find it doesn't turn quite as easily as I would like, but it may just be a bit tight since it is brand new. It is a heavy duty, well made product above and beyond anything else I have found, I am looking forward to years of service from this scoot.

          Excellent construction, easy to assemble, extremely comfortable - particularly how the seat raises and lowers for different height projects.

            Comments about : Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

            This is a great step up from the plastic versions I have used for years! I like the large comfortable seat and the various places to put tools, etc. The handle requires a bit of a learning period so I don't sit down on it or trip on it. The wire basket on the rear is study but can fall off if bumped, hence the reason I gave it a 4 star.

                The holes drilled in the handle do not match up with the bolts on the frame. Sent me 2 more handles, & they are all the same. I will have to take the unit to a welder to correct this issue. This is a manufacturing defect, and Garderner's Supply's help was to keep sending additional defective handles. Which is no help..
