m.p.h. and is designed for occasional road use. The 650 model should be driven at no more than 4 m.p.h.
when not on the road.
Users could endanger themselves and others if they are not capable of driving this scooter safely. Dealers will
advise on the most suitable vehicle from the Rascal range, but it is up to users to ensure that they have the
manual dexterity to drive the vehicle, adequate sight and hearing to perceive danger in time, and can at all
times operate the scooter safely in the expected conditions.
If in doubt we suggest you consult a healthcare professional or your nearest dealer for advice on the most suitable
scooter for your particular condition. Users should regularly assess their ability to operate their vehicle safely.

Dashboard Description
1.
Indicators: On the top left hand side of the dashboard there is a left and right indicator switch.
2.
Battery Indicator: This instrument shows the level of charge in the batteries. When in the green area the
batteries are fully charged. When in the yellow area the batteries need recharging and when in the red area
the batteries urgently need recharging. Note: When the vehicle is climbing a steep incline or starting off,
the level may drop momentarily; this is normal.
3.
Speed Selection: A speed selector ( Hi Lo ) switch is fitted to the 650 model. When Hi is selected the
maximum speed is 6 m.p.h. with Lo selected the maximum speed is limited to 4 m.p.h. The lower speed
should always be selected for pavement use.
4.
Ignition Switch: The ignition key switches power to the vehicle. Remember to remove key when not
in use. Do not leave the ignition or lights on when not in use, especially when charging the vehicle.
5.
Lights: When the ignition key switch is on, the head and tail lights can be switched on using the press
button on the bottom right hand of the dashboard.
6.
Speed Control Dial: This controls the top speed of your scooter. It is located on the dashboard below
the battery indicator. When the dial is turned anticlockwise to the left, this is its slowest speed. As the dial
is turned to the right the speed will increase to a maximum, which is the highest speed. Set the speed
before you move off. Do not adjust when the vehicle is moving.
7.
Horn: Press the button on the bottom left hand side and the horn will sound. Release and the horn will cease.
8.
Hazard Warning Switch: On the left hand side of the tiller dashboard assembly is a triangular switch for
selecting the hazard warning lights (650 model only).

450 & 650 Scooter Owner’s Manual & Service Record
Brakes
There are two braking systems. The first works with the accelerator. When the accelerator is released the
scooter will automatically brake and bring the scooter to a stop. When the scooter stops the automatic brake
will engage. This will stop the vehicle rolling forward or backward. When you start, the brake will automatically
disengage. If the battery should go flat the brakes automatically engage. Note that even when freewheel is
selected, a secondary braking system is applied automatically to limit the maximum speed. You may notice this
system when moving the scooter in freewheel.
Warning! If the freewheel device is in “freewheel” the braking is disabled. Never select the freewheel
device if the scooter is on a slope or could be pushed onto a slope.
Seat Adjustment
By operating the lever on the left hand side at the
base of the seat back, the seat back folds down.
Be careful, as the spring is quite strong, so hold
the back and ease it down into the horizontal
position rather than letting it go.
Lifting the front lever below the seat enables it to be
moved forwards and backwards. Adjust for a comfortable
driving position and ensure it is locked before driving off.
Armrest Adjustment
When getting seated on the scooter lift the armrest
up. When riding always have the armrest in the
down position.
If you require more room in the width of the seat
undo the black knobs as shown. Slide the armrests
in or out to suit. Tighten both knobs to clamp.
(One on each armrest)
Lift armrests up for access
adjustment knobs
To ensure that the user is sitting centrally, the
armrests should always be adjusted to be equidistant
from the centre of the seat.
Warning! Always check the knobs are tight before driving the scooter.

2. To operate, locate the red release lever under the seat.
3. Pull the lever up and the seat will release allowing it to rotate.
4. Release the lever and the seat will lock automatically.
Warning! Do not use this device if the vehicle is on a slope. Always check the seat is locked in the
forward position before driving the vehicle.
Tiller Adjustment
The tiller adjustment allows you to
alter the angle of the tiller to suit your
driving style or to fold the tiller down
for transporting.
Locate the red lever at the base of
the tiller. With one hand hold the tiller
while pressing the locking lever
towards the barrel.
Warning! The tiller is now free to move. Move the tiller to the desired position and return the lever to the
locked position while ensuring the lock pin is fully engaged in the hole. Before driving, always check
that the tiller is locked.

450 & 650 Scooter Owner’s Manual & Service Record
Driving the Vehicle
Warning! Read this before driving the vehicle!
Whether or not this is your first mobility vehicle, please read these guidelines as all vehicles differ.
Failure to do this may cause damage to yourself, a third party or the vehicle.
1.
Before you set out, do check the weather forecast. We suggest that you make sure you are wearing
suitable clothing, whether your journey is long or short.
2.
If you are taking medication check with your doctor or physician that your ability to control the vehicle
will not be impaired and do not drink alcohol and drive.
3.
Only use the vehicle for the purpose its intended for. Do not drive through deep water; transport
more than one person; tow other vehicles or carry excess weight.
4.
Before getting onto your scooter, check the freewheel lever is not in the Freewheel position.
5.
Check the battery charger is disconnected.
6.
Check you have adjusted the seat as instructed in this manual - get comfortable - set the speed control dial to a low setting.
7.
Make sure the way ahead is clear.
8.
Switch on the vehicle. Check the battery level indicator is in the green area.
9.
Pull in right hand lever slowly. The vehicle will now move off. The more you pull the lever in the faster
the vehicle will go.
10. To brake, release the lever. If you become unsure or feel unsafe release the lever immediately.
11. As you get accustomed to the power you can increase the speed.
12. On the 650 model, fitted with the Hi/Lo speed setting, only select the Hi setting when you are
confident of driving safely. The hi setting is only intended to be used to drive on the road; it should not to
be used when you are driving on the pavement.
11
Driving the vehicle - hazards
Warning! Before driving the scooter you should be aware that, under certain circumstances it could
become unstable and tip over. The maximum safe slope it can negotiate in any direction is shown in the
Technical Specification. Your scooter has been designed to operate on paved, even surfaces and should
not be used on rough terrain.
1.
Getting on and off the vehicle: When getting on make sure that the vehicle is on level ground, and not
in freewheel mode. Ensure that the armrests are secure. When getting off, park on level ground, turn off
the ignition and remove the key before leaving your seat. Make sure you get off the vehicle in a safe area.
2.
Handlebar Position: Before driving, the handlebars should always be lowered into the driving position. This
correctly positions the headlight and ensures all the controls are in the right position for comfortable operation.
3.
Tiller Position: Never drive with the tiller in the unlocked position, as injury could result from unintended
tiller movement while driving.
4.
Curbs and Obstacles: Do not ride up kerbs or obstructions higher than that in the Technical
Specification Sheets. Always tackle curbs and obstacles head on. The sprung anti-tip rollers at the rear of
the scooter may contact the kerb as you descend; this may cause a loud click. This is normal. Always try
to avoid crossing a slope. If you have to cross a slope, take great care to avoid tipping. Never make sharp
turns on slopes.
5.
Hills & Slopes: Going Up Hill: Lean forward when going up. Make sure you have enough speed to climb
the slope. Do not stop or turn the vehicle around. If you have to turn while climbing an incline, keep going
until you reach a level area. If you have to start on an incline, lean forward and apply power slowly - do not
start and stop. If you are not comfortable with the hill gradient, consider adjusting your seat position forward to go uphill. Alternatively consider an alternative route. Note: Always check that the battery level is
high; going up hill takes a lot of energy. If the level drops too low the vehicle will automatically cut-out.
6.
Hills & Slopes: Going Down Hill: Lean back in the seat when going down, and turn the speed control
dial to low. If you are not comfortable with the hill gradient, consider adjusting your seat position further
back when going downhill. Alternatively consider an alternative route.
Try to avoid crossing slopes – always try to drive straight up and down the slope
NEVER BACK DOWN A SLOPE!
7.
Turning: Slow down and look in the direction you are travelling - If there is a blind corner sound the horn.
8.
Bad Weather: If it is snowing or icy stay at home! Remember that ice, snow and slippery surfaces such
as manhole covers, wet grass and drains could affect braking and steering. Use caution at all times.
9.
Pneumatic Tyres: Your vehicle is fitted with pneumatic tyres to give you a smooth comfortable ride over
uneven ground. Repair of tyres or wheels should be by your local dealer. If you are particularly concerned
about punctures consult you local dealer for advice on puncture proofing products.

450 & 650 Scooter Owner’s Manual & Service Record
Transporting your Scooter
Warning! Dismantling the scooter involves lifting and handling heavy parts. Weights are given in the
Technical Specification; consider if you need help in handling parts before you try to lift them. The 450 and
650 models can be transported in estate cars using ramps. By lowering the tiller and removing the seat the
height can be reduced to make entry into the boot of most estate cars possible. Contact your dealer for
advice on how best to transport you scooter.
Warning! Pinching or Crushing. Be careful to avoid being pinched or having your hands crushed when

Battery Charging
Warning! When charging batteries NEVER smoke. Do not charge batteries in a place where there are
naked flames such as gas-fired heaters as, under exceptional circumstances, batteries may give off gases
which could ignite and explode.
Warning! When charging batteries NEVER connect or disconnect the charger while it is still connected
to the mains.
Tiller Head
Battery Charger
The charging socket is located in the side of the tiller head (see picture). Slide round the protective cover and
push in the round silver plug. When the vehicle is charged remove the plug and check the protective cover is
set in the closed position. This keeps water out. The battery charger (see picture) has a small lamp as shown.
When the charger is connected and switched on it will show red . When the battery is charged the lamp will
change to green. Correct battery charging prolongs the life of your batteries.
Connection Instructions
When you receive your vehicle the batteries are only partially charged - always fully charge them before use
preferably over-night.

Frequently Asked Questions
I want to transport my vehicle in a car.
See page 13 - Transporting your scooter. We suggest transporting your vehicle in an estate car using ramps.
There are various techniques to loading the vehicle into a car. It depends on what type of vehicle you own.
Make sure your dealer has demonstrated the easiest way of doing this.
Can I fit weatherproofing such as a canopy ?
Yes, but remember if you fit any unauthorised accessories, it will invalidate your warranty. Be aware that
enclosed canopies can affect the handling of the vehicle in strong winds.
How long will my batteries last ?
This is a difficult question as it depends on many factors. The life of a battery depends upon the number of
cycles the battery goes through, the peak loads and on the conditions of use. Some general advice about
battery care:
• Keep them charged, do not let the batteries run completely flat.
• Batteries may not perform as well in very cold weather.
• Change your batteries if you find they are not performing as well as new.
What range can I expect ?
The generally expected range is about 40 Km or 25 miles. However, range can be affected by many things such as:
• Temperature. Cold weather can reduce the output of the batteries.
• Type of terrain. Obviously climbing hills takes more energy than driving on the flat.
• Weight of the user.
• The condition and charge of the batteries.
• Faulty or old batteries
• Faulty charger
Important Rule: Always use the correct charger with the correct batteries.
How long should I keep my vehicle before I change it?
It is important that the vehicle you have suits your needs and abilities. Your 450 & 650 model scooter should
serve you well for many years but change it if at any time you feel it no longer meets your needs. Consult your
dealer on the condition of your vehicle and remember vehicles of any type become more expensive to maintain
the older they get.

Technical Information Regarding EMI
Important Technical Information regarding Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
The intensity of interference from electromagnetic energy is measured in volts per meter (v/m), which refers to the
strength of the electrical source (voltage) as it relates to the distance away from the object being considered (in
meters). Resistance of a scooter/wheelchair to certain EMI intensity is commonly called its “immunity level”. 20
volts/meter is a generally achievable and useful immunity level against interference from radio wave sources (the
higher the immunity level, the greater protection).
Your scooter has been tested and found to meet the required immunity level from Electromagnetic Interference
(20v/m): the recommended density of interference from electromagnetic energy.
Warning! Even with the immunity level of 20 volts/meter, certain precautions must be followed to ensure your
scooter/wheelchair will not be affected by outside electromagnetic sources.
• Do not operate devices such as CB radios or mobile phones while the vehicle is switched on.
• Avoid getting close to transmitter masts, such as television and radio masts.
• Note you may experience interference when close to ambulance or fire stations.
If your vehicle starts to operate by itself switch it off and report this to your Dealer.
