Used Equipment for Sale/Donation

A lasher sport, magnesium frame, while a big chair it still lighter than my aluminum every day chair.  Very useful for camping, hiking and getting out doors. The extra large front wheels makes it very easy for someone to push you or push yourself. It is a 18×19 seat. However, with a chair like this, it doesn’t need to be exactly your fit. It was originally $11,000 however I am looking to get around $5000. I just don’t use it any more, and need the funds to get my everyday chair fixed. Email me if your interested imjosiah@comcast.net
