LIFT SYSTEMS/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be transporting your scooter during travel, you may find it necessary to use a vehicle-mounted
lift system or elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the
warnings, instructions, specifications and safety information set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/ele-
vation product before using that product.
WARNING! Not all lift systems/elevation products are rated for use with an occupied
mobility device. Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your scooter when
it is being used in connection with any type of lift system/elevation product unless:
That product is rated for occupied use by the manufacturer.
You are able to occupy your mobility device in strict conformity with the warnings,
instructions, specifications and safety guidelines set forth by the manufacturer.
WARNING! Always turn off the power to the scooter when you are being transferred via
an elevation product. Failure to do so may result in accidental throttle control lever con-
tact, resulting in unintended movement and personal injury or product damage.
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and
lead compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash
hands after handling.
WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are
unable to lift that much weight, be sure to get help. Use proper lifting techniques
and avoid lifting beyond your capacity.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen
battery. Charging a frozen battery may result in damage to the battery.
WARNING! Connect the battery harnesses in the proper manner. RED (+) cables
must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK (-) cables must
be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Protective caps should be
installed over all battery terminals. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.
BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag. Contact your local
waste disposal agency or your authorised Pride Dealer for instructions on disposal and battery recycling,
which is our recommended course of action.
PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle
control lever contact.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your scooter while traveling in a motor vehicle. The
scooter should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed
and/or properly secured. In addition, all removable scooter parts, including the armrests, seat and shroud
should be removed and/or properly secured during motor vehicle transport.
WARNING! Although your scooter may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not
designed to provide proper restraint during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in
a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the motor vehicle seat with safety belts
