PREFACE AND INTRODUCTION
• Please carefully read this owner’s handbook before
using the scooter to ensure that you operate the
scooter safely. Improper use of the scooter could
result in damage, injury or traffic accidents.
2. SAFETY
Before Driving
• The user needs to be familiar with the use and
operation of this scooter before driving.
• This handbook also advises how to get most out of
your scooter by giving comprehensive operating,
assembly and maintenance instructions for the
scooter.
• Ride on the pavement and pedestrian areas only.
Never ride on motorways or dual carriageways.
Only use roads to cross to other side of the
pavement.
• A repair and maintenance record chart and
warranty information is included with this
handbook. Please keep it in a safe place or with the
scooter.
• Be aware of traffic when crossing or using roads.
• If someone else uses the scooter make sure that you
provide him or her with this handbook for their
consideration.
• As designs change some of the illustrations and
pictures in the manual may not correspond to the
scooters that you purchased. We reserve the right
to make design modifications.
• The Kite range of scooters have been designed and
manufactured to provide a comfortable and secure
yet affordable solution for some mobility
requirements. They are manoeuvrable and are
suitable for indoor and some outdoor application
where the terrain is forgiving (for example smooth
paths, shopping centres, etc). They are class 2
scooters as defined by the Road Traffic Act 1988.
They feature a rotating seat and can be easily
folded and disassembled.
• There are two models available:
3-wheel model for compact environments
4-wheel model for greater stability

• Use extreme caution when driving your scooter in
busy areas such as shopping malls.
• Do not drive the scooter under the influence of
drink or drugs, or when you are tired.
• Be careful when using the scooter in low light. It has
not been design for use at night.
• Before using the scooter in busy or hazardous
environments, familiarise yourself with the
operation of the scooter. Practice in an open and
safe area which is free from hazards and other
people. Turn the speed dial down for your initial
practice.
2.2 Whilst Driving
• Do not use your scooter on surfaces that are
muddy, gravelly, bumpy, narrow, snowed over, icy;
or on towpaths near to canals which are not

• Moving and Braking. Push the right hand side of the
wigwag paddle forward with your right thumb and
the scooter will move forward. Push the left hand
side of the wigwag paddle forward with your left
thumb and the scooter will move backwards,
emitting an audible reversing alarm. To brake,
release the wigwag paddle which will return to
neutral and activate the electromagnetic brake
automatically which will bring the scooter to a
prompt stop. The wigwag paddle allows you to
control the speed of the scooter up to a maximum
speed determined by the Speed Dial. The further
the wigwag paddle is deflected, the faster the
scooter will go (up to 4mph).
Warning
Do not push both left and right hand
sides of the wigwag simultaneously. You
will not be able to control the scooter.
• Battery Gauge. The battery gauge on the tiller
console lights LEDs to show remaining power:
Green (3 or 4 LEDS lit) - 40% - 100% capacity
Yellow (2 LEDs lit) - draining charge (10% - 30%)
Red (1 LED lit) - immediate recharge is necessary.
The remaining power indicated by the battery gauge
will vary by the driving time incurred and how you
drive. Repeated starting, stopping and climbing will
consume power more quickly. The gauge is shown
below.
• Horn Button. Press the horn button to sound the
horn, Release the button to stop the horn. The horn
is the yellow button located between the wigwag.
If the leftmost LED is flashing, this means the scooter
has encountered a problem. The LED will flash a
number of times then pause. Count the number of
flashes to determine the problem.
• Braking – Electromagnetic Brake. Release the
wigwag paddle completely, and the
electromagnetic brake will be activated
automatically and the scooter will stop
If you experience any flash sequences first restart the
scooter, ensuring the wigwag paddle is released. If this
does not remedy the problem recharge the batteries.
If the error persists contact your Drive Medical Dealer.
When on a gradient, never set the vehicle
to freewheel mode. The brakes will not be
applied.
• Seat. The seat can be rotated and locked in position
at 45º intervals. Push the seat lever forward and
swivel the seat. Release the lever and then continue
swivelling the seat until it locks in position.
Attention.
Return the seat to the forward position
before driving.
• Adjusting the Seat Height.
Remove the seat from your
scooter then remove the locking
pin (arrowed). Move the chrome
seat post to the desired height.
Adjust the seat post height so
that there is a predrilled hole to
reinsert the locking pin. Insert
the locking pin and lock.

Attention
You should recharge the batteries after
each use to ensure maximum range. Read
the Battery Charging section in the
handbook before use.
• Circuit Breaker. The circuit breaker may trip when
the scooter is under excessive load or when
travelling on steep inclines. It will be more prone to
tripping when the scooter is low on battery charge.
Under normal conditions the circuit breaker button
will protrude by 2mm – 3mm. If the circuit breaker
has tripped the button will protrude by 7mm. To
reset the circuit breaker, push the button in and the
scooter should operate as normal.

Charger Light
• The charger light will illuminate orange to indicate
the batteries are charging. The charging duration is
about 8 hours, however to a 12 hour charge is
recommended for optimum performance. The
orange light will turn green when charging is
complete.
Ensure that the charger is removed from
the mains and the scooter or battery pack
after charging. Failure to do this may
flatten the battery.
Do not remove the battery pack whilst the
scooter is switched on.
Suggestions
1. Do not disconnect the charger cord until
charging is completed and the light it lit
Green.
2. When fully charged the battery charger
will still trickle charge the battery for
optimum range.
3. Even when not in use, the scooter should
be charged at least every week to
ensure battery longevity.
4. Ambient temperature will effect
charging time. Charging time will be
longer in cold environments.
5. The batteries carry a 1 year warranty
which covers manufacturing defects
only. It does not cover battery faults as
result of not following the guidelines
herein.
Warning
1. Only use the charger supplied with the
scooter. Using the wrong type of
charger may cause damage. Never
disassemble or modify the scooter.
2. Always charge the scooter in a well
ventilated space. Avoid direct sunlight
or contact with water and moisture.
3. Do not charge or operate the scooter in
temperatures below -10ºC or above
50ºC. Do not expose the battery pack
to these temperatures.
Kite Electric Scooter
About the Battery Pack
• The battery pack contains two 12V 12ah batteries.
The batteries are sealed lead acid type and are
maintenance free and are non-spillable. They are
fitted with spade terminals.
• The batteries require charging every week to
ensure battery longevity.
• The batteries supplied as standard with the battery
pack are classified as safe for air transport under
IATA special provision A67.
Warning
If battery pack loses contact with the
scooter during operation switch the key
ignition off, re-insert the battery pack and
switch the ignition back on.
Battery Care
1. You should recharge the batteries after each
time the scooter is used to ensure maximum
battery range. The batteries should be charged
at least once a week even if the scooter is not
used.
2. After charging or replacing a new battery,
drive the scooter for a short period to ensure
battery capacity is sufficient.
3. In cold environment, the battery may respond
more slowly and range will be reduced.
4. When driving on a gradient, the battery gauge
will fluctuate. This is a normal occurrence.
5. Battery range is reduced when driving up
gradients or on rough terrain, as the scooter
uses more power.
6. The batteries should not be charged for more
than 24 hours.
Battery Replacement
It is natural for the battery capacity to reduce with
time, even if the battery is charged as directed above.
When the battery range is about half of its peak
performance we recommend that the batteries are
changed. Continuing to use an old battery will result in
a rapid reduction in the range of the scooter and can
cause excessive wear and tear on other parts of the
scooter.
Page 8 of 14
Owner’s Handbook (Code: Z40948)
Warning
• Do not use a hose pipe or splash water
directly on to the scooter.
• Do not use petrol, solvents or vaporising
solutions as these many damage body
panels. Do not use wax
• Ensure the charger is unplugged and the
scooter switched off before cleaning the
scooter.
7. INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
7.1 Weekly Checking
Check the following items weekly or before driving. If
you find anything abnormal contact your Drive Medical
Dealer for further inspection or advice.
