    How To Turn The Scooter On

    First, ensure that the rear switch is in the "locked" position

    The Scooter needs the brake freewheel locked to be able to send power to the wheels. In the event you need to push the scooter, you would use the unlocked position. 

     

    Put the key into the Scooter

    When turning the scooter on make sure your hand is not on the forward or reverse. If your hand is on the forward or reverse you will need to turn the scooter off and on. 

     

    Utilize the left or right paddle to power the scooter.

    It is compatible with either your right or left hand. When using the right paddle, the scooter will move in a forward direction when pulled and will reverse when pushed forward. The controls will be reversed for the left paddle. Do not use both paddles at the same time.

     

     

     

     

    How to disassemble the Scooter

    note: a 3-wheeled 300-pound capacity is shown but the process is similar for all 300 and 400-pound capacity scooters. 

    First, remove the chair

    To remove the seat do not jerk it. Wobble the seat and pull straight up.

    Remove the battery from the scooter

    To disconnect the battery, lift the handle upwards. Please note that our scooters are equipped with enhanced battery packs that can weigh up to 30 pounds. It is advisable to place one hand on the steering pole while using your dominant hand to raise the battery.

     

     Fold the steering column 

    To collapse the scooter's steering column, loosen the knob at the base of the column and lower the pole.

     Place the Scooter Into Your Car

    To maximize space in an SUV, place the scooter on its side and remove the basket. This allows you to use all three rows of seats and still fit the scooter.

    How To Charge The Scooter

    Connect the charging cable to the battery using the provided charger. The charger has 3 prongs that should fit snugly into the corresponding holes in the battery. The battery can either be attached or removed from the scooter for charging, either is fine.  
     
     
     
    The charger will give you a light when plugged in properly  
    Red = Battery is charging 
    Green = Full Charge
    Blinking Green = Battery is being tendered
     (Cease battery charging when the green light is blinking to prevent overcharging the battery.)

     

    Troubleshooting

    The scooter is beeping but still driving.

    This means the scooter is running low on battery. We suggest putting the scooter on charge soon. 

    The scooter is beeping and not driving.

    There are two main causes for this:
    1. When turning the scooter key to "On" make sure the rider does not have their hand on the forward or reverse. Also, make sure a cane is not pushing the forward or reverse when turning the key.
    2. Make sure the switch in the rear is in the "Locked" position on most scooters that is the back position. It is common for park employees to put the scooter in the un-locked position to move it when you are on a ride, at a show, or at a restaurant. Turn the scooter off & on any time the switch is moved. 

    The scooter will not turn on at all.

    Make sure that the battery is on and has a good connection. Try removing the battery and putting it back on.
