CaterWil GTS3 EXPORT with options
Among all the advantages of the new model it’s necessary to note a new lithium battery with increased capacity. Compared to old lead-acid batteries the lithium battery has a larger capacity, higher power voltage, deeper discharge, less weight and most importantly a longer service life. The lithium battery has a lifetime of 1000 full charge cycles against 300 cycles of standard AGM or GEL batteries. Taking into account the fact that the lithium battery has 1.5-2 times longer cruising range, it can be counted that on the new battery for its entire lifetime it is possible to travel 5-6 times more! In addition the new lithium cells are created specifically for electric transport are more resistant to cold, lose less capacity in the frost than lead-acid maintenance-free batteries.
Equally important is the comfort and handleability of the CaterWil GTS3 EXPORT. This is achieved with new vibration damping pneumatic wheels and updated software. Long trips with new tires on the asphalt became much more pleasant and relaxed, noise from vibrations was decreased. The joystick has become more obedient and the wheelchair itself is smoother at speed especially at turns.
Also there is no denying that the updated appearance of the EXPORT version is more attractive and cool. The headlights “Angel Eyes” have two modes of operation: “Running lights” (only the blue color rim is lit) and “Head lights” (power white LED optics additionally lights the road). Rear LED lights have one mode of operation and are designed to illuminate the space behind when reversing and for road driving safety. The rear cast chromed wheels also give the new CaterWil GTS3 EXPORT a modern and unique appearance.

Практически нет непреодолимых преград при передвижению по городу, преодолении лестниц бордюров не вызывает затруднений. Манёвренная легко управляемая. Цена хоть и дороговата для российских инвалидов, но дешевле зарубежного аналога аналога в 3 раза. Сиденье регулируется, угол наклона. Ширина коляски позволяет заезжать в лифт.
Эноргозатратная при передвижение на гусеницах.
Новая версия с пневматическими колёсами стала уверено стоять на дороге, сглаживает неровности, лучше слушается пульта управления, при неровностях на дороге не кидает в сторону. Преодолевает мелкие пороги на колёсах без труда.
