Tired of inferior recliner chairs that simply don’t make the cut?. We were too, which is why we searched for what we believe to be the Best Heavy Duty Recliners For Men. Here we list only the recliners suitable for the obese, overweight and heavy people. Nothing substandard for us bigger folk. It’s time to kick the feet back and relax in style as we review some large capacity recliner chairs.
Being a big guy myself, I know how important the right recliner is. Not only for durability and weight capacity. But also for ease of use. Which is why I tend to always recommend recliner-lift chairs for us heavy people. A recliner alone is excellent, but when your larger then normal, getting out of the chair can be a massive struggle. Which is why I love these lift chairs that can tilt forward and basically ease the burden of trying to stand up. So let’s get into it.

The Mega Motion company has released a Mega superior lift recliner chair just for us oversized fellas. Ok so not just for us big guys but you get the point. Which is great news because Mega Motion are famous in the mobility industry and specialize in equipment to help specific people who find normal life activities a tad bit harder then the common folk.
This particular recliner is rated to a maximum of 500 lbs. That includes the lift feature as well. So to get in and out of the chair much easier all you have to do is press 1 button and your ready for easy sitting. It reclines to 3 different positions including full recline so you can really relax in comfort. The recline feature is powered by an electric motor which is controlled by a handy remote (That can’t get lost because its attached to the recliner).
As for comfort and style, I usually prefer fabric chairs, and it’s no different with the Mega Motion Heavy Duty Big Lift Chair. There’s nothing worse then on a hot summers day and your skin sticks to the vinyl or leather sofa. This material chair comes in a variety of colors too, so your not short on choices. I like the amount of cushioning on this recliner, its a good balance between over the top squishy and rock hard.
What a recliner chair this beast is, or should I say ‘Stallion’. It’s another heavy duty recliner with a load bearing capacity of 500 lbs. Brought to you by Lane Furniture and is proudly made in the USA. There’s so much to love about this recliner chair but the most important factors are what matters most. Firstly this Stallion recliner is suitable for the big and tall people. The high back and head rest ensure that the tall people can easily relax in comfort. In fact when fully reclined, this chair is the same length as a King size mattress. Pretty neat.
When you recline in this chair, the wall saver feature moves the chair forward automatically so that your not banging into your walls. It’s frame is made from all steel including the seat box, which is how it gets it’s heavy duty rating. The chair itself just looks so cosy and comfortable from all the thick padding, even on the foot rest. The Stallion is an all round must have chair for comfort relaxing and watching the flat screen while confidently reclining in style. .
Heavy duty frame, heavy duty materials, cushioning and pure comfort. This CatNapper 450 lb weight capacity recliner is one chair not to be messed with. It’s a massive chair that will keep you coming back for more. The oversized pockets on the sides are truly huge and perfect for almost anything you can think of. This is one chair you won’t want to get out of in a hurry.
Being a heavy duty lift chair means it’s a good choice for obese and heavy people who struggle to get in and out of normal sofa’s or chairs. All powered by an electric motor that seamlessly can recline to multiple positions. One nice feature on this chair is the back up power. So if you loose electricity for any reason, you won’t be left stuck in an awkward position unable to get out. The back up power comes from 9v batteries. Make sure you take advantage of this feature. Really important.
As for comfort levels, its hard to be disappointed with the Omni Catnapper. If you have ever slept in a recliner before or basically use a recliner as a bed, I think you’re in for a treat. Amazing things can happen when you sleep in a lift chair of this caliber. It’s also an acceptable temporary bed for people with bad backs or suffering from surgery. However be sure to consult your Doctor before using any chair as a sleeping apparatus. They should have named this chair the Everyday Napper!. Made in the USA.
For those that simply can’t have anything but leather, then I think you will love this heavy duty Lift Chair by Catnapper. Its rated a little less at 350 pounds, but made with the same heavy duty materials to make the above Catnapper. The steel seat box shouldn’t warp out of place which tends to happen with the wooden frame recliners.
This particular recliner is a microfiber material which is very soft on the skin, and easy to clean. It’s not a rocker, which is fine by me but worth noting for some folks. It’s designed just for the big and tall people according to Flash Furniture. The overall width is 41.5 inches, the overall height is 48 inches and the back rest part is 29″.
A pretty comfortable and basic recliner with a 350 Lbs weight capacity which would satisfy many heavier people. My only gripe with this chair is that the lever is on the left side of the chair. This is just a personal dislike as I prefer it on my stronger side. The actually lever is not a plastic or wooden arm, it’s one of those half circle type devices where you put fingers in and push outwards to release the chair.
Another great lift chair for overweight people by Mega Motion. The infinite position chair does just what it’s called. Two individual motors allow you to position both the chair and the foot rest to any position imaginable. This is ideal for people to find the correct position that suits there personal needs.
The material on the chair is so soft to touch and combined with the adequate cushioning makes a really comfortable chair or temporary bed. This recliner has a heavy duty rating of 325 pounds. So make sure you adhere to the weight restriction ratings.
Like it’s bigger Brother, this chair also has the back up power feature for those untimely electricity shut offs. The lift feature also works like a charm for easy access. With quite a few choices for color, I see this recliner being a popular choice among the heavy community.
