    What's your preferred brand, and what are some others that you would suggest?

    lets drop Quickie and maybe Invacare from that list.

      From many months of reading posts here, the favorites among users on this site include TiLite, Lasher, Oracing, Colours, and Top End (in no particular order). The least favorite is Quickie (Sunrise), except some users love Quickie's new Q7 (Helium). Many are also excited about the Icon, which is not yet available for purchase.

      When I was choosing my first chair, I researched the order forms to cull out the various available choices that were important to me. The features that really narrowed my list included frame style, rear-seat-height-adjustment range and ease, flip-back footrest, future power-assist compatibility, and manufacturer reputation. Once I decided what was important to me, the list of choices was very short (i.e., 2-3 chairs).

      Here is a screen capture of my links to a number of ultralight manufacturers:

        I will personally never own another Tilite chair after my catastrophe with my ZRA s2. It works well now but it took 6 months of unnecessary arguing and unneeded stress from the DME and with Tilite. Todd from Tilite on the other hand was great to deal with. Overall bad experience with my first chair.

          I am sitting in a new Quickie GT. I have doubts that it will stand up under serious use.

            Still using my Quickie HP2 as my manual chair many years later. It doesn't get a lot of use these days, but it has held up well.

                Tilite is the only one for me. Hated invacare and quickie.

                  My quickie 2 hp titanium is 17 years old! They do need maintenance, as do bicycles (upholstery, tires, bearings, some plastic interfaces)! No cracks in frame, aligned well, traveled all over with it. Best chair they ever made.
                  The availability of parts is great, and the dealer we order from knows his stuff!

                      Toto, you had a post on here about the aluminum foot plates that you made.
                      I want to see those photos again, where are they?

                        I just got my Ti ZR and after some aggravating adjustments, it beats my Quickie in every way except the back upholstery.

                        The Ti upholstery is shoddy cheap and junk.

                        I just happened to have a new quickie back (upholstery only) in the closet, put it on the Ti, now I have my perfect chair.

                        The ZR a is a keeper.

                        I love it!
