Weight Limitations

Your power chair is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal injury
and/or damage to your power chair. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property
damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your power chair. Carrying passengers on your power chair
may result in personal injury and/or property damage.

Tire Inflation

If your power chair is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of
your power chair.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times.
Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overin-
flated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in pneumatic tires at all times may
result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal injury and/or damage to your Jazzy.
WARNING! Inflate your power chair drive tires from a regulated air source with an available pres-
sure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in
a burst tire and/or personal injury.

Incline Information

More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your power chair.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the power
chair’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any
railing corners.
n When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and then
accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, set your power chair to the slowest setting and drive in the
forward direction only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired,
allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward slightly to ensure a
safely controlled descent.
