You Power King people are a special breed of people and might find it difficult to operate anything without an offset steering wheel so I found this for you when for when you are too old to walk around shows any longer.It's not my unit and if it were I might have the price a couple dollars lower.

What amazes me most about this pos, is the amount of time and energy (and cash to some extent) that someone invested.  Even if all the parts were free, I wouldnt have wanted to waste welding wire and a quart of black paint.

 

And $4999? Really? Wow. Someone is sniffing glue

I could get into so much trouble with that thing, sadly I don't think I'm alone in that thought.

I guess I'm one of those time and energy wasters too.   :(      

I spent a lot of time building a garden tractor that really serves no purpose.  I have used it occasionally to pull my sprayer around this place killing weeds in fencerows, and thistles in the pasture.  Even had to purchase some high dollar nickle rod to weld up some cast iron hubs to mount the back wheels.  I could just as easily have used a factory built machine.   Just think of all that leisure time I wasted, when I could have plopped my fat azz in front of the TV,  and watched some pro-wrestling.  Shame on me.   :wallbanging:

My Brother always goes thru many powered electric chairs and says they are all junk. He cobbles and modifies the heck out of them to keep going. He says they don't hold up, not built sturdy enough. THIS one ought to fit his bill. Be kinda stinky in house tho. :smilewink:

I would guess that 50 years ago when this thing was built it would have been a blessing to anyone in a wheel chair who wanted to travel and was probably well worth the time and effort put into especially considering what was available as far as wheel chairs were concerned.

I tend to agree with this, we got to realize that this wasn't built recently, and back then someone who was wheelchair bound would have benefited greatly from this machine, a lot has changed in 50 years, back then it wasn't crazy.

There is a difference between a useful machine for the pastures and a chair with wheels. Maybe my outlook on the chair would be different if he wasn't insane at $4999. His finger aparently got stuck on the 9 too long.

My apologies - I was under the impression it was recently built. In that case, I hope it served someone well. I still think the sellers finger got stuck on the 9 button though. At his current price he might as well roll it back in the corner and shut off the computer
