The Extreme X8 powerchair can be fitted with either black or silver lifting rings, which allows the chair to be hoisted onto utes or a utility vehicle with lifting straps. This makes transporting the Extreme X8 from point A to point B much easier. The lifting rings are affixed to the centre of the wheels at four points on the chair, and are tested to a maximum rated load of 250kg. The user must vacate the chair before hoisting it.
Please note that lifting rings are not a substitute for tie down rings:
- They are NOT crash tested
- They are NOT a restraint point
- They are NOT to be used while the powerchair is occupied
