Today, we’re going to be looking at that ATTO mobility scooter by Moving Life. As you can see, it's a pretty unique-looking scooter. It is not your everyday scooter thanks to its sleek lines, portability, and useful accessories.
The ATTO mobility scooter has some really cool lines and design to it. You are really going to like this scooter if you travel a lot. The most unique and helpful feature of the ATTO is its three separate modes.
The three modes for the ATTO are:
- Riding Mode
- Trolley Mode - which allows it to fold up into a suitcase
- Transport Mode - where it breaks apart into two pieces to make lifting easier
Weight & Sections
Overall, the scooter is not too heavy. The total weight is only 62 pounds. When split into two pieces, the first half is only 27 pounds and the other is about 35 pounds. So it is really easy to put in the back of your car trunk.
Unboxing & Setup
Next, this is how the scooter is going to arrive at your home. It will be in the box, obviously, so you will have to take all the wrappings off. But once it’s free, this is how quick and easy it is to really get it up into mode for you to start using it.
The controls are really simple to use. The ATTO doesn't have a key, but it does have an on-off button. This is the speed control, which goes from 1 all the way up to 5. When the scooter is set to 5, you can go a full 4 miles per hour, which may not seem like a lot. But it's really a pretty fast brisk walk/power-walk, so to speak. Four miles an hour really get you where you going.
Here is your battery indicator. This icon shows that the battery is fully-charged right now, and it allows you to monitor how quickly it depletes while you ride.
You can also change directions with this button. If you want to go forward or backwards, simply press the button. The scooter even has a little horn to help get people out of your way while you ride.
The other really nice feature on the ATTO is the thumb throttle. A thumb throttle is important because a lot of people tell us that twist throttles are difficult to use - especially if they have arthritis in their wrist and hand. With a thumb throttle, you just press the button and away you go.
The seat is completely height-adjustable. I'm about 5’ 11” tall, comfortably sitting on the seat. The handle allows riders to lower, raise or tilt it on the tiller bar. The tiller is what most people commonly call the steering wheel. The tiller bar can tilts down and toward the rider to get a little bit closer to you. It also raises up and down so that you can get to the exactly the most comfortable position for you for a completely custom fit.
Similarly, the seat can be adjusted up and down quite a bit. If you're a little bit shorter, and you want it in a low or medium position so your feet rest comfortably on the bottom - or all the way up - the handle on the back of the scooter makes this a great option to have.
1. Riding Mode
The most common and obvious mode for the ATTO is its Riding Mode. Once set up, most owners will leave the scooter in Riding Mode 90% of the time. Riding Mode is flexible because micro adjustments can be made to the tiller bar's height and angle, the seat position, and more. Be sure to set the front wheel's drive to Active (not neutral) - and you're ready to roll.
2. Trolley Mode
In Trolley Mode, the ATTO is simple to pull behind you. If you're in the airport, all you need to do is bring this clip forward and into place. Then it's just like carrying a suitcase to the luggage area.
The front wheel has two modes. You're either in Drive Mode or Neutral Mode. When it's in Neutral Mode, you can push it because the wheel rotates easily. The important thing to remember is that when you are ready to ride and turn on the controls on the tiller, you have to be in Drive Mode. Otherwise, the system will shut down automatically. Once it’s in Drive Mode and the wheel is locked, you can get on and off safely and won't fall.
3. Transport Mode
The other nice feature this has is that if you want to put the scooter in the back of your trunk, you don't have to pick up the whole 62 pounds all at once. All you have to do is press the red button, flip these two handles out, and it breaks into two separate pieces. The front section is about 27 pounds, and the back section is about 35 pounds, so putting in the trunk is really pretty simple.
Charging & Installing the Battery
The battery is totally removable for charging and a little carrying handle so if you want to
charge it if the plug isn't nearby, you can just bring this in your house to charge it and then when it's fully charged. All you do is put it back in first until you hear a click, and then you know that it's installed properly.
Some other nice feature on the ATTO is that it has a USB charging port here so while you have your phone with you you can plug it in and keep it charged up. The other thing I like about the ATTO are all of the accessories that are available.
The model we’re looking at a few of the really nice accessories including this Essential Pouch in the front where you can keep, well, your essentials. Whatever you want to put in there will be right at your fingertips
The last accessory we’ll cover is the ATTO’s under-seat cushion storage unit. It is very nice because it takes advantage of the space under the seat where you can put your handbag or groceries, or whatever whatever you're traveling with. It zips up and gets out of the way while you’re on the scooter.
One item that Moving Life has done a nice job with is including a paper guide to bring with you while you’re traveling - especially on airplanes. It is important to ensure that you have the right certification so authorities will allow you to bring your ATTO on the plane.
With this guide, you won’t have to learn any special language or technical jargon. Just take this pamphlet with you to the airport. If anyone says, “I'm not sure if you can bring this on the plane or not,” the guide has all the certifications for local and international flights.
Just hand them the pamphlet, and you can be assured that the ATTO will be allowed to be on the flight.
