Mcombo 7040 Lift Chair Manual

I recently purchased an Mcombo 7040 Lift Chair for my elderly grandfather. Prior to purchasing the chair my Grandfather had some questions so I figured I would have a look at the manual for answers. Surprised that I couldn’t find one, I thought I’d share it here along with my thoughts about the chair.

About the chair

A lift chair is a chair designed to help elderly people who have challenges standing upright on their own. I decided to go with this chair because of it’s user reviews (almost 5 stars) and the value.

The Assembly Manual

Arrival

After reading the reviews online I learned that the chair would arrive in two boxes. Two large and very heavy boxes. The boxes arrived a day before Amazon’s estimated shipping date so that’s a plus.


Two Large Boxes

Unboxing

The chair arrived in two large boxes. One is heavy, the other medium weight. I’m not a particularly strong guy, but I was able to lift and move them by myself. I would recommend having a friend or assistant help with moving the boxes and assembling the chair.

Assembly

Ideally, two people are needed to unpack and assemble the chair. I was able to do it alone, but another person would have made the final part somewhat easier. I was surprised to find that the assembly didn’t require any additional tools (aside from a knife to open the packaging). The assembly manual is only 5 pages, but not really needed if you’re reasonably handy.

Final Thoughts

Here are a few initial observations:

Pros

  • The chair is very sturdy. Despite it arriving in a few boxes and requiring assembly, everything plugs together hardily weighing in at over 100 lbs (48 kg).
  • The movement is very quiet. I was surprised the motor is virtually silent.
  • The chair received an honorable mention on SeniorsMatter. First place was given to a more expensive chair. The value of this chair proves to be a good bang for your buck.

Cons

  • There are some particle board backing pieces that have yet to be fully wear tested. I’ll update this page if any issues are encountered.
  • Some additional wire management (cable ties, sturdy tape) has been recommended by other chair reviewers. The model I received looks as if that has been addressed by the manufacturer, but I’ll probably add a couple of wire ties just to be safe.

Update: After six months of daily use there are zero signs of wear, wobble or leather fatigue.

A word of caution

Medical professionals do not recommend using the lift function of the chair extensively. The body can get accustomed to having lift support, which will make it much more difficult to get up from a normal chair.
