    Hello Riaan,
    Look at this thread: https://www.carecure.net/forum/showthread.php?t=123070

      Here are a few of my new TiLite ZRA I bought it used and it is around 6+ months old I think. I stripped off everything that wasn't necessary so it would be as light as possible because I have super wimpy arms.

      I have a zillion adjustments to make on it today but here it is....

          The front wheels are now anodized blue but they're still 4" casters with unitine frog legs. Shoulda gotten green casters to go with the green Dino's. I'll change it soon. (Base chair is a Quickie GTX.)

          Edit; the handrims are Natural Fit LT's now. Highly recommended investment!

            Looking good!

            Nice to see a different design out of the Lasher shop. I hadnt his fixed backrest or the ZR style axle plate/camber tube mount. I think the V might be stronger but it is undoubtedly lighter with only one down tube there.

            What is the bolt just below the backrest where it is welded to the frame rail used for?

                I believe the single downtube has to do with the low RSH (15" with 25" wheels), definitely have no complaints with it.

                That's an oopsie bolt. They originally built the chair with a folding back.

                  if you do a search of the chairs you're interested in you will find alot of info. Most people here post pics when they get a new ride.

                        Tooley what is that hammock type thing under your chair? The backpack is pretty inefficient for a quad.

                              All of my weight on the anti-tippers? Yup.. All 300lbs of my fat backside... However I do not usually have the anti-tippers (or handles or armrests) on the chair. Only for long 'outings'. Most of the time it's setup more of a 'naked' look. Frame, wheels, cushion and bag. That's it (like the first few pictures).

                              How-ever, I have tested everything and this chair build with the HD option is rated for 400 lbs. The anti-tippers have held me in the reclined position during a short movie at the museum (I was showing off) with no fear of tipping over. Actually, I'd keep the tippers on if they allowed for just a bit more elevation before contact with the floor. Someday I'll modify them but with my 25" wheels it's all they are going to do. I wheelie around constantly to get through doors, spin around quicker, etc. So far (knock-on-wood) I haven't flipped over backwards... But it's only a matter of time I'm sure, without the anti-tippers on...

                              The arms come off and put on just as easy. The handles have one bolt to take them off or put them on. But I only use them when we're going somewhere with a very long way to walk so I have the option of being pushed. But I often have people push me up a hill or something simply by pushing on my shoulders too (It's kinda-nice, a shoulder message plus help up the hill at the same time).

                              That might be a lot more information then you asked for but simply put; yes. The anti-tippers hold me, bouncing even, and all 300lbs of me with no problem. Never once giving me any doubt they would hold.
