OPERATING YOUR HURRICANE PMV
After planning your route:
! Set the 4 - 8 mph switch to your desired maximum speed of 4 or 8 mph; then set the speed adjustment dial to
your desired speed. We recommend you initially set the 4 - 8 mph switch to 4 mph and the speed adjustment
dial to the tortoise (slowest speed setting).
! Insert the key into the key switch.
! With your hands on the handgrips, use your thumb to gently push the right throttle lever to disengage your
Hurricane PMV's brakes and move forward; the electric brake automatically disengages and the Hurricane
PMV accelerates smoothly to the speed you set with the speed adjustment dial.
! Pull on the left handgrip to steer your Hurricane PMV to the left.
Pull on the right handgrip to steer your Hurricane PMV to the right.
! Move the tiller to the center position to drive straight ahead.
! Gently release the throttle lever to decelerate and come to a complete stop. The electric brake automatically
engages when your Hurricane PMVcomes to a stop.
! To move in reverse, use your thumb to gently push the left throttle lever to disengage your Hurricane PMV's
brakes and move rearward.
