    I had a conversation with the guy that over see’s disability stuff for Colorado government and he said that it has already went to trial in Colorado on using tracked wheelchairs in that state, and it was determined that if a person can walk their you can use your chair their because that chair is your legs in accordance with the U.S. accessibility act for handicapped. But in federal and state parks ,forest and wilderness areas you need to inform them as to what area you will be hunting in , in case someone reports you they know you are their legally, but you do have to aptly for a permit so that only disabled people are out their and not everybody else. I read an article that a guy was prevented from using his until be applies for a license to run his tank chair on public ground , but according to the accessibility act if it is a unit for disabled if you can walk their he can use his chair their. If I was him I would take it to court if be is legally handicapped.

    Do you have the issues worked out with social security disability so they will pay for a tank chair yet? I was a volunteer fireman and had a heart attack while on a wild land fire call. I went to the hospital and had a 6 way bypass during which they bruised my heart and had to put a pump in my groin which cut off circulation to my left leg and I lost it. Now I just found out I have throat cancer so there is not much hope that I will get out of a chair. I was an avid hunter but I haven’t been in the woods for several years because my Jazzy wont go over the terrain in my area, this is why I really need a track chair but I cant afford one on my income unless Disability pays, or I win a lottery. If you have a chair that is used and I can get a payment plan I would really like a chair.

    Hi Tankchair team,
    I have owned my Tankchair for a few years. The craftsmanship is absolutely outstanding and mechanically it has held up without a glitch. The delay in the controller drives me a bit crazy because it’s not as smooth of transition as my Invacare Torque but I do understand why it’s there. I bought the chair primarily for bow hunting and it’s worked out AMAZING. Once while going over some larger rocks across a pond spillway, my foot bounced off the footrest getting caught in the tracks. It hurt. I broke two bones in my foot. That is a simple fix I will address. Straps work but they are inconvenient. That is a safety issue I hope gets addressed by your team. LOVE the continual progression of the products and company. One thing is that it appears you’ve upgraded you’re batteries from when I bought mine, which I’m due to replace, and am hoping you’ll point me in the right direction on here or via email (c6tracy@gmail.com). Thanks and keep on keepin on,
    Regards, Cody C5/C6

  16. Gen Boyer/June 30, 2014

    Aloha Brad Soden,
    I love your story of innovation and compassion. I was wondering what is your opinion of the Segway line of products? I commend all inventors of mobile products that help our Vets and all people with impaired mobility.
    Congrats! Mahalo, Gen

    Are there any foundations to assist those who are not wounded warriors with the purchase of a Tankchair? My son was injured at age twenty (C6-C7). He has not allowed his injury to ruin his life. In fact, 1 1/2 years after his accident, he took first place in the Boston Marathon in the quad division, is a certified scuba diver, and plays wheelchair rugby. He married and had a child. One of his greatest sadnesses is that he cannot play out in the snow with his daughter, go to the beach, trek into the woods, etc. Our family is of limited means, but I would love it if we could somehow acquire a Tankchair for someone as deserving as my son. Thank you for your attention to my note. Nancy Woolley

    • Kristy Rocco/June 25, 2014

      Nancy, we are currently in the process of creating a foundation, however, the main focus is vets, children, and fallen officers and firemen. Some people have mentioned to us that they are doing fundraisers to get the money for a Tankchair, maybe this is something you can look into. Hopefully this helps.

    Looks like it could be fun. I wonder how many people will buy this just for the fun of it. It looks like it could go places that some ATV could not go. I would if there will be a gas motor version for out door use.

  19. Robert/June 19, 2014

    I watched your segment on The Today Show. Congrats and thank God you paid no intention to the fine (not) engineer in Minnesota who said your idea was physically impossible.

    I wish my Grandfather was still around to enjoy one of these.

    Keep up the good work!

  20. Wendy Lundeen/June 19, 2014

    I am so hopeful these chairs can fit in my grandson’s school elevator AND his wheelchair van. I don’t see that these issues have been addressed. I look forward to your reply! Both my grandsons (Dillon – 11 and Tyler – 8) have a terminal illness (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy). Because I tirelessly search for joy for them I can just imagine their smiles as they travel about the beach or the forest enjoying the Nature God intended for us ALL to enjoy! Thank you!

  21. Jon Erlenbush/June 19, 2014

    Saw your product on the “Today” show. Awesome products, keep up the good work.

  22. Pete Vaillancourt/June 11, 2014

    too bad you wouldn’t accept workers comp insurance.i’d love to cruz around town with the speedster …that 28mph would be a dream co me true;used to be a off road log-truck driver love speed…. c-5 c-6 quadraplegic from fort kent,maine…. keep up the great work

  23. Liliana Judge/June 11, 2014

    What a great product line! Through your ingenuity you have blessed many people who suffer from limited access and lack of mobility. Metaphorically speaking, Life gave lemons to the inventor of the tank chair, yet he turned it into great lemonade, and through tackling the unfortunate circumstances and challenges he came up with a great product that benefits many. I do hope Tank Chair products soon will reach international markets too. I am aware of a young man in Russia, who is 26 and chair bound, yet local SS authorities in his town do not wish to provide him with a chair that can climb up and down steps. He won a court hearing, yet they appealed. Sergey Yarkov lives on the 2nd floor of an apartment building that has NO handicap access,so he is confined to his tiny apartment. For him getting a chair like yours, that can walk up stairs and move fast would be a true blessing. We collect signatures to support Sergey’s petition for a mobile chair here http://goo.gl/N9zdsY
    Again, thank you and your team for a great work you do! Blessings!

    Very impressive to say the least. American ingenuity.

    MAY I SUGGEST A REAR VIEW MIRROR

    Good luck

  25. Nagels, Jo/June 6, 2014

    Just great… You tackled access which is the biggest barrier for people with a physical disability.

  26. Maria/June 6, 2014

    May I suggest making the chair also a portable commode so the rider doesn’t need to search for toilets? Maybe a plastic cover can be added (perhaps attached and rolled up on the side/s and maybe when un-rolled its close-able with velcro) to give the rider privacy. Just a thought.
    Great invention!

  27. Jason Snow/June 5, 2014

    I just discovered your mission via the Bloomberg News. I salute you and your whole family/team. You could be an inspiration and model for all of us. My friends and family will be discussing ways to help shortly!

  28. Cheryl Ewing/June 5, 2014

    As I slowly build out my birding website (between too many other priorities) it dawned on me that eventually I would like to add pages for people who have handicaps – sight, hearing, walking …. whatever it may be …. so they could get out and enjoy the wonderful hobby of birdwatching. So today, when I found your story — I was overjoyed to learn that you have found a way that people who are unable to walk could actually get out on trails and in the woods and find wild birds actually IN THE WILD! Maybe some day you would allow me to share your story on my birding site if it seems there is a match. God bless you and grant you many years of continuing along this new road you are traveling, enabling others who were not previously able to, to “walk along” that road with you.

  29. Peter O'Shaughnessy/June 5, 2014

    I saw your chairs and was impressed with your ingenuity. I prefer your other chair. What I need is a light weight chair for a big man. I’m 6’2″, 280 lbs. I like to travel but because of my injury I have difficulty lifting a large, heavy wheelchair. I need something that I can lift or my wife can lift into the car or be easily loaded into the airplane. Currently, I take the wheel chair to the door of the plane and then they store it below. I’m the last person to get off the plane and generally, the chair is there as I exit the plane.

    How much does your speedster weight? Does it come apart into pieces to be transported? Your chairs look great. Finally something that doesn’t look clinical or institutional. If you can e-mail me anything, that would be great. Look forward to hearing from you. Peter.

    • Kristy Rocco/June 11, 2014

      Peter, unfortunately the Speedster is about 350 pounds so it would be too heavy for you or your wife to lift. However, it is easy to load onto a trailer or wheelchair lift. It also does not come apart, so it would still need to be stored below in an airplane. We try to design our chairs so that they don’t look like every other chair. We call it the ‘prom queen effect,’ you get the attention of the people around you when you drive our chairs. We are sorry that our chairs will not work for your traveling needs. We are constantly coming up with new things so keep in touch, we might have something in the future that can help.

    Seen your video im bloomberg and very courage

    Keep it up the good work

  31. JL Brown Jr/May 16, 2014

    I love my chair, I would never consider any other chair. Its great,well made. I am so happy, from the service by the company, to my chair. I just hope more vets can get this chair, I still need someone to go hunting with, but now I can get out there to hunt.
    Never give in to the other chairs, you won’t be happier until you have a tank chair!

  32. Roland "Pegleg" Marchand/February 26, 2014

    This last weekend FEBRUARY 21-23 2014 my best Friend and I were invited to San Diego to meet and greet Bill O”Reilly and other wounded Warriors who were also RECEIVING their chairs from a couple of DISTRIBUTORS. I RECEIVED my Tank Chair from the ownwer and INVENTOR of the tank-chair brad soden. I meet his lovly wife liz and his mother also. what a great family and i for one am so thankful that i received one of brad great chars from the INDEPENDENCE fund. i have it at home learning to drive it and can’t wait to get out into the mountains to go FLY-FISHING and hunting again. I encourage all wounded Warriors from any conflict who is or wants to be active again to call the INDEPENDENCE fund and hook up with them so you to can get out and enjoy the great outdoors again. get a hold of brad at tank chairs and talk with him and tell him what you wounld want and then you will be ready to let the INDEPENDENCE fund know what you want and get out and roll again. brad and family keep up the great work and thank god he put this great idea of yours into FRUITION.

  33. C.L Jackson/January 23, 2014

    This is a wonderful machine. Allowing folks who otherwise wouldn’t get to outdoor sites to enjoy life with the more able members of their families. Fixed income however, limits those able to afford your track vehicle to the more financially ADVANTAGED.

  34. Pamela Blum/April 25, 2013

    You are inspiring , I wish you only the best life has to offer

  35. Chris Jordan/October 23, 2012

    Glad I stumbled upon this site! It gives me a chance to *thank you* for giving me incentive to customize my wheelchair last year when I had seen photos of your Tank Chair a 2 “high profile” wheelchairs. THANKS!

  36. Greg MacPherson/January 26, 2011

    Great idea!!! You do need to add better foot rest/guard to protect legs I noticed in videos. Also guarding over the top as learned in other tracked vehicles to keep from pulling operator/load etc under the tracks and causing damage. I would suggest fiberglass or better yet, a composite material to keep weight down and appearance up. A one piece unit per side probably would keep legs/feet in bounds and cover exposed tracks. Keep up the good work!

  37. Rod Bertrand/January 21, 2011

    Very cool products. Keep it up.
