Nova Mighty Mack Heavy Duty Rollator Walker Review
The Nova Mighty Mack not only sports a simple elegant design but is also great at its functionality. Nova is a company that has always been striving to deliver function and style through their products and looks like even with Mighty Mack, they seem to have sort of got more closer to fulfilling their vision. Without wasting any more time, let’s begin with the Nova Mighty Mack review.
Weight & Folded Size
A tough and heavy-duty rollator won’t obviously be known for being lightweight, but at 24 pounds, you can still expect the walker to get easily transported in and out of your vehicle.
Another reason that it easily fits inside most of the trunks of the car is that it folds up front to back and gets down to 18.5 inches. Though, if you possess a very small car, then you gotta beforehand carefully examine the measurements to see if it fits or not.

Most of the quality rollators out there in the market can be seen equipped with 8-inch wheels and the same goes for Nova Mighty Mack. The solid rubber wheels roll smoothly over the common terrains. The wheels work very similarly to that as of a car, i.e., the rear sides remain fixed whereas the front sides swivel. This leads to more stability and helps to easily navigate.
The one thing that we personally liked a lot about the walker was its more than average-sized storage basket which holds the capacity to hold most of your personal belongings, including the groceries. This was mainly achievable due to the wide design of Nova Mighty Mack.
Though, in situations like rains and from the viewpoint of security, a bag would have been a better option in comparison to a basket. No worries, you can still opt for a basket cover, converting the basket into a bag and still getting the fun of both the sides.
Keeping the rollator’s size in mind, the Nova product seems to do justice by moving around easily wherever you feel like. When the walker is moving, you hardly take notice of the weight. Though, when it comes to narrow spaces, the difficulty arises as the walker is quite wide, measuring 28-inches.
We felt that when it comes to tight spaces like small doors, a traditional walker would have also performed a lot better, but nevertheless, this is how heavy duty walkers work. They aren’t much tight space-friendly dude!
The brake mechanism works very similarly to that of a bike’s brake system. To slow down you just have to pull on the brake levers towards yourself. It’s pretty easy to lock the brakes, all you have to do is push down on them. It’s advised that you lock the brakes every time before you head to sit on the walker. The safety brake is pretty straightforward to lock and unlock.
Though, if the brakes cables would have been running inside the frame, then it’d had been great from a safety and design point of view. Still, somewhere down the line, we feel that probably the brake cables were designed in such a manner so that it’d be easier to replace them and it would also add to the strength of the rollator.

Another fantastic feature of the walker is the 20-inch wide seat that’s pretty more than the average seat size and feels a lot comfortable. You shouldn’t count much on the backrest as it isn’t that great but it should still get you going with a decent seated position.
Thanks to the wide gap between the handles, there’s a lot of space for you to sit and relax in all corners without worrying about getting tangled on some part of the walker. The seat height of the rollator is constant at 22 inches which are perfect for most of the average-sized individuals. Though, if you are lesser than 5’5”, then you may have trouble touching your feet on the ground.
The 600lbs weight capacity of the unit is enough to prove the tough build quality! In comparison to a standard walker, the Nova Might Mack seems to be a lot sturdier and stronger walker. It doesn’t matter whether the walker is still or in motion, in almost every situation, it feels tough and brilliantly executed.
The great thing is that almost every part of the unit can be replaced. So, if after some time, some part’s condition deteriorates badly, then you can directly opt for the replacement from Nova.
Practical Road Experience
When it comes to going over speedbumps or sliding on super smooth tiled floors, the walker seems to perform quite great. In the day to day activities, we never felt that the sturdiness of the walker got reduced anywhere. Even in indoor environments, the change phase from a carpet to the floorboard also felt like it didn’t exist only.
Not every time you can expect heavy-duty walkers to look great as their main area of focus is not design or style, rather the sturdiness or durability of the product. But, fortunately, we have the Nova Mighty Mack with us that is not only sturdy but also great in terms of design and functionality. If you want a wide seat and a heavyweight capacity, then you can undoubtedly go for the Nova Mighty Mack.
