The handbrake lever contains hydraulic fluid. When the lever is depressed, the fluid is pushed through the
brake line to engage the brake pads against the brake discs. The handbrake lever is a completely sealed
unit, meaning that the hydraulic fluid should not leak; however, there are certain safety measures that
should be taken if the handbrake lever becomes cracked or damaged.
Do not touch spilled material unless wearing protective equipment, such as safety goggles and gloves.
For small spills, cover the material with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible absorbent material.
Once absorbed, enclose the material in a plastic bag and contact your local waste disposal agency for
proper disposal measures. Do not expose the material to waterways or sewers.
If the eyes are exposed, check for and remove contact lenses. Flush eyes with cool, clean, low-pressure
water while occasionally lifting and lowering the eyelids. Seek medical attention if excessive tearing,
redness or pain persists.
If the skin is exposed, remove all contaminated clothing. Wipe off excess material and wash exposed
skin with soap and water. Seek medical attention if skin appears damaged or if irritation persists.
Thoroughly clean contaminated clothing before reuse. Discard contaminated leather goods.
If ingested, do not induce vomiting or give anything to drink unless directed to by a physician. Never
give anything by mouth to a person who is not fully conscious. Seek medical attention immediately.
If inhaled, move the affected individual to fresh air. If the affected individual is not breathing, imme-
diately begin rescue breathing. If breathing is difficult, 100% humidified oxygen should be adminis-
tered by a qualified individual. Seek medical attention immediately and keep the affected individual
warm and at rest.
If ignited, use dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide or water fog to extinguish.
WARNING! Do not modify the handbrake lever or attempt to replace the hydraulic fluid.
If damage occurs, follow the safety information in this section and contact your autho-
rised Pride Dealer for handbrake replacement. The hydraulic handbrake should only be
serviced or replaced by your authorised Pride Dealer.
WARNING! The handbrake contains hydraulic fluid that can cause mild skin, eye and
nasal/bronchial irritation. Do not attempt to adjust or service the handbrake without
proper protective equipment such as safety goggles and gloves and wash hands after
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level sur-
faces composed of concrete, blacktop or tarmac. However, Pride recognises that there will be times when
you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed to perform admirably on
packed soil, grass and gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
Avoid driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
Do not use your scooter in fresh or salt water.
Do not use your scooter at the edge of a stream, lake or ocean
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! Exercise extreme caution when operating the scooter on footpaths, pave-
ments, bridleways, pedestrian areas and roads. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules.
