The AmeriGlide Rubex is the least expensive and most popular stair lift that AmeriGlide offers. The most notable difference is the track, which lays flat on the stairs. While this is more stable than other configurations, it also is not as conservative with most users’ limited stair space. Also, this means the track is unpainted aluminum, which does not fit most home decors. The lift is cable driven, which means it is simpler in construction and can be moved more easily in the unlikely event of a breakdown. The case is painted aluminum, much sturdier than other lifts’ plastic cases.
As far as cons go, there are a few that you would expect with a lower priced chair. The seat is not adjustable. You have to work with the height as it is. The armrests are smaller, and overall the lift is not as aesthetically attractive as higher-priced stair lifts.
If you’re looking for a less expensive lift with good functionality, this is going to be a great choice for you. Don’t expect a lot of bells and whistles, but this is still a great buy to help you get up and down your stairs with more ease. It starts at only $1,399.
