Description

  • Scoot lets you work from a seated position, so it's easier on your back and knees
  • Great for gardening and many other projects, from washing tires to painting low spots
  • Heavy-duty construction, with pneumatic tires and a swiveling, height-adjustable seat
  • Choice of Red, Green or Blue

Gardening is easier when you can sit, swivel and roll! Our back-saving Gardener's Supply Tractor Scoot lets you work from a seated position virtually anywhere in your yard or garden. Thanks to your input, we’ve made this customer favorite even more comfortable and easier to use. First, we added a longer handle so you can pull the Scoot behind you like a wagon. When retracted, the handle locks upright to make a sturdy handhold. We also lowered the swiveling, tractor-style seat by 3-1/2" to give you better access when planting and harvesting, and the seat now adjusts from 16" to 19" high, to suit your body and the task at hand. Lastly, we increased the weight capacity of the 1" tubular steel frame to 400 pounds. Hefty, pneumatic tires ensure a smooth, stable ride.

And now, our Scoot has a new bucket basket. It’s the perfect size for a 5-gallon pail or our 3-1/2 gallon Tubtrug and provides a convenient place to toss weeds or gather the day’s harvest.

Specifications

  • Powder-coated tubular steel
  • 44-1/2" L including handle x 18" W x 22" H
  • Weighs 38-1/2 lbs.
  • Weight capacity is 400 lbs.
  • Tires are 10" in diameter
  • Tools needed for assembly: Large flat head (slotted) screwdriver, 1/2 in. wrench or adjustable wrench, adjustable slip jaw pliers.
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    Comments about Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

    We had the original design for many years. My husband has refurbished it for his own use after buying a new model for me. We really appreciate the usefulness as we get older. The new design is an improvement on the original.

      The Tractor Scoot was purchased for my wife to help her around her flower gardens. It has become invaluable to her.
      I have become quite attached to it for help around the low to get at points on the vehicles and boat. A very much appreciated tool.

      • Sitting

      Comments about Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

      It rolls easily. The handle is a little flimsy, and I would not count on it to hoist myself up and down, I use my cane for that. The ground here is not really good for sitting and scooting, but it is not too much to get up, move it, sit. For a good seat height to get up and down from it, I have an issue with the last 4-8" to the ground if just using my hands. With a hand hoe, I can still reach. For raised beds, working on low planters and some of the building/installation work I am doing, this is perfect. My subtracting one star was assembly was difficult, especially the bolts provided for putting the underseat shelf on, I had to throw out the lock nuts and replace them, with hex head bolts and new nuts. Also had difficulty tightening in some other parts, they specify a slotted and the bolts are slot/Phillips, use a Phillips! It took two people to do it. The tires came with tubes and were inflated, the tubes were in crooked and had to deflate, reseat the tubes so the stems were straight then reinflate.
      If you were doing raised bed gardening with hard surface path between them, this would be absolutely wonderful. My spouse has sat on it as well, large person and big boned, and he also says comfortable and doesn't feel like it would collapse under him. Once you sit down it stays put, sit with confidence.

      Not easy to assemble

            Comments about Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

            I haven't used the Tractor Scoot yet but I wanted to go ahead and do a preliminary review: it was a total bear to assemble. Although only a screwdriver was needed, it was extremely difficult for me to hold screws, washers and bolts in place from the back side where I couldn't see while trying to tighten the screw from the front. I finally had my 89 year-old father to help, but I'm afraid that some of the screws are not tight. If I'd known there was going to be that much assembly required, I probably wouldn't have purchased the product. I hope it will be of benefit because I really like the idea.

              Assembly a bit tricky with some screws so close in size as to be confusing -- seat is comfortable and I like ability to adjust the height -- really helpful for weeding given my knee trouble -- glad I found this Tractor Scoot!

                I have rheumatoid arthritis & severe spinal stenosis. This scooter tractor has allowed me to work in my flower beds and pick veggies out of the garden. There is a place under the seat for tools & the basket in the back is able to hold the veggies I pick! So glad I found this on-line!!

                Comments about Deluxe Tractor Scoot with Bucket Basket:

                This scoot easily doubles the amount of time that I can comfortably weed and garden. Requires a little manipulation to get it in the right spot sometimes, but worth the effort compared to bending or kneeling. It is solid, a bit heavy - but with care it will also last forever, it is really well built. Overall, I'm very glad to have this.

                First off, this is a great idea and a wonderful product. Very tough, durable. I'll give it 4 stars for that. However, putting it together was tough. The screws and bolts were very hard to tighten as locations of each were difficult to get to. I needed someone else with special tools to tighten screws under seat and plastic tray.
