When climbing an incline, try to keep your Travel 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 Travel 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 Travel
Scooter in freewheel mode while 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 Travel 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 Travel Scooter across the side of an incline or diag-
onally 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 Travel 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 Travel 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 Travel Scooters. Figure 1 illustrates your Travel Scooter's stability and its
ability to climb grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the Travel 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 Travel Scooter's
ability to travel up inclines is affected by your weight, your Travel Scooter's speed, your angle of approach
to the incline, and your Travel Scooter setup.
Figure 1. Maximum Recommended Incline Angle
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than what is shown in figure
1 may put your Travel 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.).
