Can you hang bags and equipment onto the wheelchair?
Yes

Do you have problems with the wheelchair tipping?
Yes. Tipping occurs when going over even the smallest of dropkerbs. Kerb steppers are useless, on the first time using this they just spun around facing upside down, Meaning I have to be taken up dropkerbs backwards.

Personal Opinion:

I would not necessarily recommend this chair to anybody, for it is not very comfortable. I am 5ft 7 and the footrests are on their longest adjustment, but I find my knees get very painful sitting in this chair for longer than 15 minutes. It tips on even the dropped kerbs that seem flat and safe enough, the lap belt is not long enough for a larger person, which makes no sense considering this is a larger than standard seat size. The seat is not the most comfortable, as you feel every single small bump in the road.
