    The Best Heavy Duty Recliners For Big Men Up To 500 Lbs

    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.


    Our Loved Recliner For Big Menrecliners for obese people

    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.

    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.

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.

    Our Best Leather Recliner Recommendation

    For Up To 350 Lbs

    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.

    Another great lift chair for overweight people by Mega Motion. The infinite position chair does just what it’s called.

    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.

    What would you say is the best recliner for a 400 pound guy like me. Im not too tall but taller then average. I dont want my feet hanging off the edge of the chair when in reclined position. Can you recommend a recliner that can suit my needs and last a long time? thanks

    • bigman says:

      Hi Kenny,
      Thanks for stopping by to check out these recliners for big men. Because you are 400 pounds, I always recommend big guys to go above there weight. Because of the initial impact of sitting on the recliner is heavier then 400 Lbs so I would say to aim for a 450 pound capacity recliner. Such as the Catnapper Power Lift Recline

      . it’s a really tough recliner and rated to hold 450 lbs. However if your over 6’1″ tall your feet may slightly hang off the edge in reclined position. As you didn’t stated how tall you are, I believe the Catnapper will suit your needs just beautifully. Let us know what recliner you end up buying.

    • Clayton Harley says:

      I’m a 355 guy. My choice for the last decade has been the Best Furniture “Beast” product line, specifically the “Savanta” model. They make 4-5 different variations (one is a lift chair).
      My feet don’t hang off the end, but I have to scoot up and back when getting in and out of the chair. When slid to the back of the seat, my knees don’t even reach the edge of the seat.
      Well padded and comfortable…but the price is over one thousand dollars.
      Mine seem to last about 6-7 years before wearing out.

  2. Wendy says:

    Hi I am looking for heavy duty recliner for 450 lbs capacity without lifting, but I am in Ontario, Canada. Can you direct me to the location that carries them?

  3. Michael says:

    Been looking for a large mens recliner for over a year. Furniture is the hardest thing to shop for since you really have to sit in it before you buy it. I want a leather big mens recliner with power. Doesn’t need power lift, but power. To independently change the back and legs at different times. I don’t like those 1 button touch models. I’m over 6 feet tall and weigh 365 lb’s. Most recliners I sit in my legs are just too long. I need something large. Any suggestions?

  4. Michael says:

    I’ve been searching for a big rocker recliner for two years. Everything I have sat in is horrible. Not one has been comfortable. I am 300lb 6’1″ tall. Every chair I sit in my head is above the back headrest so when I put my head back I’m looking at the ceiling. Who puts a TV on the ceiling? And the salesman didn’t actually understand what I was saying. I also don’t want my feet, ankles hanging over the lest rest when extended. That happens all the time and very uncomfortable. It has been such a big problem for me to find a quality chair I may hire someone to actually build one for me.

  5. Christine says:

    Why arent there any big women chairs?

  6. Jane Allen says:

    This was so well put together. Especially for heavy people who often have a difficulty finding the right fit, when it comes to recliners. I always thought the La-Z-Boy takes care of that population segment but you’ve mentioned some brands I never knew about. I found this article useful.

    • steve says:

      lazy boy no longer has the equality of the past

    • Sandy says:

      Ditto what Steve says about La-Z-Boy. We bought a big/tall La-Z-Boy recliner, and we’re constantly having to repair the foot/leg rest. We had bought that brand due to past positive experience, but their products are not the good quality they used to be.

      • Karen Swan says:

        I will never buy a La-Z-Boy recliner again. They used to be well made from hardwood, but now they’re chipboard on a metal frame; and they don’t hold up well even for someone like me who is overweight but not huge. Now, my son is 6’8″ tall and weighs 537 pounds, he needs a long, heavy-duty chair. I’ve been looking at the Lane Stallion recliner on-line and read your description above, but want to know if you’ve actually used the chairs you describe and have actual experience with them or know people who do. If so, what has your experience been?

    where do I look for a lift recliner cover for a man with incontinence? Need both new recliner and heavy duty waterPROOF cover as he has a lot of accidents.
    Thank you
