When climbing an incline, try to keep your Hurricane 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 Hurricane 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 climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the incline.
Drive your Hurricane straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall.
Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating 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! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the Hurricane in freewheel mode
while seated on it or standing next to it.
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 scooters stability and its ability to climb grades under various
weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the Hurricanes seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat
base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your Hurricanes ability to travel up
inclines is affected by your weight, your Hurricanes speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your Hurricanes
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than that shown in figure 1 may put
your Hurricane in an unstable position and cause it to tip, resulting in personal injury.
