Driving information
6.0 Information about safe Strider driving
Always carry out the safety information
described in chapter 1.5 “Safety during driving“!
Driving the Strider is very simple and after a few practice sessions you
will find it very easy.
The following information should help you to drive safely through traffic:
• always match your speed to the driving situation in which you find
yourself.
• always reduce the speed when you are driving through:
- unclear areas
- narrow gaps
- tight curves
- inclines
- ramps
• take a trial run with the Strider in an area with no pedestrians,
or in a closed-off area
• always steer the Strider using both hands on the handlebars
• always keep your feet in the foot area while driving the Strider
6.1
Driving up inclines and down slopes
The Strider can climb up inclines of up to 10° without danger.
Please note:
The maximum safe incline has been determined in accordance with
the EN standards . The scooter is able, under the maximum specified
load, to start, brake and turn.
It is possible to negotiate some steeper inclines however we do not
advise you to do so.
The overload protection device could trip due to a combination of,
incline driving duration, steepness of the incline and load applied to
the vehicle.
28
Issued: 28.02.2005
Strider MD 4 Plus
Driving information
Climb angle examples:
a 1 metre long ramp should not be higher than 18 cm
a 2 metre long ramp should not be higher than 36 cm
• Avoid driving across an incline
(always try to drive in the direction
of the incline / decline).
Tipping

Driving information
Overload protection - motor protection
The overload protection system switches the drive off if the motor
becomes overloaded by trying to climb over too high an obstacle such
as a kerbstone, or if you try to climb to steep an incline.
Should the overload protection system activate, the motor or power
module has overheated. This can be caused by driving up long inclines
with high load and/or under high environmental temperatures.
Activation of the overload protection trip should be seen as a warning to
inform users not to continue driving under present conditions.
If activation occurs on an incline, then the incline is either too steep or
the duration of driving on the incline is too long. Continued driving on
such an incline should not be continued - even if the overload protection
device allows you to do so. The motor could become dammaged by
such sustained excessive temperatures.
If the motor is overloaded, the following happens:
• the Strider becomes noticeably slower and then stops
• the control system switches the Strider off
To rectify this:
➨ Switch the scooter off and allow it to cool down for a few minutes.
➨ Switch the scooter on again and ...
... reverse away from the obstacle (such as kerbstone) and then
try again at a lower point.
... be careful turning the scooter round on inclines, and always
reverse away very slowly.
Tipping hazard!
There is an increased tipping hazard if the incline is very steep.
• Try to get help from a second person when turning your
scooter round.
Accident hazard in push mode!
If the incline is too steep, there is a danger that you will not
be able to hold onto the scooter and that it will roll down the
incline uncontrolled.
• Try to get help from a second person when turning your
scooter round.

Important information about reading the battery charge display:
• If the scooter is at standstill, it is often the case that the battery
charging state is shown higher than it actually is.
• The display can vary greatly while the vehicle is travelling (depending
on load).
• If the vehicle is under heavier loading (for example heavy
acceleration, driving up hills), the pointer can sometimes go to the red
area of the display. This is not critical and does not indicate the actual
charging state of the batteries.
• If the pointer has gone into the red area of the display after the
journey, it will often show green after the Strider has been turned off
for a long period.
This does not indicate the actual charging state of the batteries!
If the pointer is in the red area of the display at the end of the journey,
the batteries must be charged before continuing the journey.
Disregarding this can lead to destruction of the batteries!
Determining the actual charging state:
➨ Drive at a constant speed for about 200 m along a straight level
route. The value shown by the display during the journey is the
actual battery charging state.

6.4.2 Driving range
The Strider driving range is dependent on the following conditions in
addition to battery charge:
- landscape conditions (level or steep)
- weight of user
- weather conditions (cold, rain)
- driving with headlights
For this reason, information about the driving range is only given as a
guideline. The more experienced you are in using the Strider, the easier it will
be for you to determine the driving range using the battery charging state.
You will be able to achieve the best possible driving range if you:
• ensure that the tyres are inflated correctly
• avoid steep inclines as much as possible
• do not carry any unnecessary luggage
• drive at an even speed
• do not accelerate or brake unnecessarily
The driving range will be decreased if you:
• drive with headlights
• drive in cold weather
• drive in hilly regions
NOTE
Please see the information about batteries in the Appendix.
6.4.3 Overdischarge protection - battery protection
In order to protect the batteries from over-discharging, the control unit
switches the Strider off. This takes place when the battery voltage falls
below 17 Volts.
Display:
the battery charger display pointer is pointing
to the left at the end of the red area.
To rectify this:
➨ You must not drive the Strider any longer!
➨ Connect the Strider to the battery charger.

Things to know
12.0 Things to know
12.1 The battery charger - functioning principle
The battery charger regulates the voltage (Volt) and the current
(Ampere) from your mains connection down to the voltage
required for charging your batteries (24 Volt).
The amount of charging current required is dependent on the
charging state of the discharged batteries.
Batteries mostly discharged
= more charging current
Batteries half discharged
= decreased charging current
Batteries fully charged = current to keep up battery charging
When the batteries are full, only the current required for battery
charging flows, which means that battery overcharging is prevented.
12.2 The batteries
Batteries
The entire power supply is taken over
by two 12 V batteries. These are located
below the motor cover under the seat.
The batteries used in the Strider are
known as batteries for cyclic use. Only
enclosed maintenance-free batteries are
used.
12.2.1 What are batteries for cyclic use?
Batteries for cyclic use are designed, in contrast to starter batteries as
used in cars, so that they deliver continously energy over a longer
period of time and allow a considerable number of charging phases.
12.2.2 When do the batteries achieve their maximum performance?
Fixed cycle batteries achieved a maximum performance after four or
five charging and discharging cycles. Only at this point is their internal
chemical equilibrium achieved so that they can produce maximum
performance and service life.
12.2.3 How do I make sure the batteries achieve their best service life?
• Always charge your batteries completely after use.
• Charge your batteries regularly.
• Only store completely charged batteries in the vehicle.
