I especially love the extra wide wheels because they help my stride and balance a lot. The walker was simple to assemble and easy to get out of a specially designed carton even though it is heavy. I like the small yet sturdy seat but I wish the plastic tray fit in the basket for storage when I'm not using it. The basket in sturdy and deep, but it pops out of place when it's empty. The brakes are better than those on my other walkers. My rating for this Walker would be Better if some changes were made on it's Accessory features" for overall independence and lifestyle. As a walking aid only though, it's TOP NOTCH!
To be honest this unit for the price has many nice features. The reason I have rated our unit as average is because it was poorly assembled. Before my wife could use it I had to carry out far to many adjustments. Initially we couldn't even unfold this Rollator. I had to adjust and lubricate both left and right hinge mechanisms. Following those adjustments I had to re-adjust all four wheels, The wheels were much too tight and wouldn't spin. As well the two front wheels would not pivot correctly, as well as not spin. This required loosening the wheel bearings and pivots, lubricating them then re-assembly. Surprisingly one of the rear wheels (left) didn't even touch the floor. I had to shim and loosen the mounting nut. Once the wheels were working correctly I had to further adjust the right side brake shoe as it was binding against the wheel, therefore the wheel wouldn't spin. Lastly the two small black plastic axle caps were missing. Fortunately, these caps were both found loose under a fold at the bottom of the cardboard shipping carton. All told I believe I spent a good hour to set up and carry out adjustments before this unit was good to go. It is now working as it was designed, my wife enjoys it's light weight. She uses it strictly as an indoor unit. As I stated above this unit has many nice features. Factory assembly and inspection however requires work.
This is my in house rollator. It is too heavy for me to take with me but it fits thru our doors. I bought this for two main reasons, one for the narrow size and the other to help me carry items from room to room and from car to house. It is very sturdy and I call it my mack truck rollator because it is so sturdy and strong. I am very pleased with my purchase and the great service from overstock.com
This was exactly what I needed. Had purchases a larger rollator but found that I prefer the small size as it makes it easier to travel with.

My mom used to have a hard time to move around with the walker, we hve to help her walk. After I purchased this Mabis, she is moving more with lesser help. Also, she used to woke me up 2-3AM from her walker's noise, not with Mobis. William
The rollator walker is exactly as described and almost exactly like the one I was replacing. It has 2 improvements over my older model. The seat is 2" wider and there is clear plastic tray which fits on the seat to help carry things. The 8" wheels roll very easily even outside on dirt, roots, and grass. The very short turning radius allows me to turn around in very tight quarters. I do not have any complains with this walker. I use it daily and would definitely recommend it to other people.
I purchased this because of knee problems making it difficult for me to walk. After researching rollators, this was the most well built. The wheels will go through very thick grass with easy. The seat has a tray that fits on easy. The basket comes on and off for easy access. It is very easy to fold up to take along. I would recommend this to everyone!
