When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and
then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the
slowest setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your scooter starts to move down the incline
faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control
lever. Then push the throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the scooter in
freewheel mode, especially when seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the
face of the incline. Drive your scooter straight up the incline. This greatly
reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when
negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your scooter across the side of an incline or diagonally up
or down an incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e.,
areas covered with snow, ice, cut grass or wet leaves).
WARNING! Even though your scooter is capable of climbing slopes greater than
those illustrated in figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline
guidelines or any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could
cause instability in your scooter.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries and therefore do
not necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made,
not designed specifically for scooters. Figure 1 illustrates your scooter's stability and its ability to climb
grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the scooter's seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat
base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your scooter's ability to travel
up inclines is affected by your weight, your scooter's speed, your angle of approach to the incline and your
scooter setup.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than what is shown in figure
1 may put your scooter in an unstable position and cause it to tip.
WARNING! Never carry an oxygen tank weighing more than 6.8 kg (15 lbs.). Never fill the
front or rear basket with contents exceeding 6.8 kg (15 lbs.).
