Heavy Duty Wheelchairs

With weight capacities of up to 700 pounds and seat sizes up to 30 inches, heavy duty wheelchairs (often referred to as extra wide wheelchairs or bariatric wheelchairs) are sturdy enough to accommodate almost any user. Just their lighter cousins, manual chairs, our heavy duty models all fold and feature arm rests and swing-away footrests - but they differ quite a bit in their construction. While lightweight wheelchairs often employ materials like aluminum or titanium alloy, a heavy duty wheelchair is usually fashioned from steel.

At 1800wheelchair, we have an excellent selection of heavy duty wheelchairs for sale. We also have an extensive wheelchair accessories section, where you’ll find plenty of customization options to help ensure that your chair is a perfect fit.

Remember, orders over $59 qualify for free shipping!
