SECTION 1: IMPORTANT SAFE OPERATION PRACTICES
WARNING: This symbol points out important safety instructions which, if not followed, could endanger
the personal safety and/or property of yourself and others. Read and follow all instructions in this
manual before attempting to operate or service this vehicle. When you see this symbol - heed its
warning.
WARNING: Engine exhaust, some of its constituents, and certain vehicle components contain
or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other
reproductive harm.
DANGER: This vehicle is designed to be operated according to the rules for safe operation in
this manual. As with any type of vehicle, carelessness or error on the part of the operator can
result in serious injury. Failure to observe the following safety instructions could result in
serious injury or death.
General Operation
13. Sit on the center of the seat and keep both feet
within the foot platform perimeter. Clean foot
platform if dirty and remove any debris from around
foot controls, e.g. brake pedal.
14. Do not misuse the utility vehicle. It is an utility
vehicle, not a recreation vehicle or toy.
Recreational riding can lead to accidents, severe
bodily injury or death.
15. Inspect area around vehicle before moving, especially in reverse. Back up slowly. Always look down
and behind before and while backing to avoid a
back-over accident. Keep bystanders out of area.
16. Avoid driving through water, since loss of control
may occur. Drive belt may slip if exposed to water
thus reducing vehicle pulling power and stopping
vehicle entirely.
17. Always use vehicle lights while operating in low
light situations.
18. Do not mount or leave vehicle while it is in motion or
in actual operation.
19. Avoid sudden starts, stops, or turns and always use
a level turn-around area.
20. Never leave vehicle unattended with the key in the
ignition. Always turn key to the “Stop” position, set
the parking brake and remove key.
21. Check overhead clearances carefully before driving
under low hanging tree branches, wires, etc.,
where the operator may be struck or pulled from the
unit, which could result in serious injury.
22. Improper use of the vehicle or failure to properly
maintain it could result in decreased vehicle
performance or personal injury.
23. Engine must be stopped when cleaning, servicing,
adjusting, repairing, or installing attachments on

place for future and regular reference and for
ordering replacement parts.
2. This is an off-road utility vehicle and it should not be
operated on public highways. Know and comply
with all laws and regulations governing the use of
off-highway vehicles in your area.
3. This vehicle handles and maneuvers differently
than a normal passenger car. Sharp high speed
turns and abrupt maneuvers can cause vehicle to
roll over or go out of control. Slow down when
turning and avoid abrupt maneuvers.
4. Handling and maneuvering characteristics of
vehicle change depending upon cargo load. Heavy
loads affect steering, braking, stability, and overall
handling of vehicle.
5. Be familiar with all instructions and controls and
their proper operation before starting vehicle.

3. Do not let children ride in the cargo box, in the
driver’s or passenger’s lap or anywhere other than
the passenger seat. Never give small children a
ride; not even in the passenger seat. They may fall
off.
Slope Operation
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of control and
rollover accidents, which can result in severe injury or
death. If a slope is steeper than a 15° incline, do not
operate this unit on that area. Exercise extreme caution
while operating on slopes.
DO:
1. Travel straight up and down slopes, not across.
Exercise extreme caution when changing direction
on slopes.
2. Travel slowly while on a slope. Always keep the
forward speed limited when going down slopes to
take advantage of the motor braking action.
3. Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual.
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope.
4. Avoid slopes with slippery, loose, or bumpy
surfaces as they are especially hazardous.
5. Use extra care while carrying cargo. It may affect
the stability of the vehicle. Spread the load evenly
or tie down.
Do Not:
Cargo Box Loading/Operation
1. Do not exceed vehicle’s Total Load Capacity rating
of 1,400 lb. This includes operator, passenger,
accessories, and cargo.
2. Do not exceed 1,000 lb. load in cargo box.
3. Spread load evenly and secure to prevent
movement.
4. Do not load above height of cargo box front panel.
Load could shift forward and injure driver or
passenger.
5. Avoid loads which exceed the physical dimensions
of cargo box.
6. Go slow. Heavy loads will affect steering, braking,
stability, and overall handling of the vehicle. Limit
loads to those that can be safely controlled.
7. Avoid sudden starts, stops, and turns which could
cause load to shift.
1. Do not travel near drop-offs, ditches or
embankments. The vehicle could suddenly turn
over if a wheel is over the edge of a cliff, ditch, or if
an edge caves in.
2. Do not stop or start suddenly when going uphill or
downhill. Be especially cautious when changing
direction on slopes.
3. Do not turn sideways to the hill. The vehicle may roll
over. If you must turn, go slow and do so carefully
and gradually.
4. Do not carry cargo on steep slopes or tow loads.
Cargo Box Lift
1. Stop vehicle on level ground and set Parking Brake
before raising cargo box.
2. On manual lift units, unload cargo box before
raising cargo box by hand.

Towing Loads
WARNING: A loaded cargo box can be very
heavy. Do not attempt to dump a loaded
cargo box unless vehicle is equipped with an
electric lift option.
WARNING: To help prevent personal injury
due to loss of control or tipping, always tow a
load slowly enough to maintain control.
IMPORTANT: If dumping by electric lift, stop immediately
if actuator clutch slippage occurs. Lower cargo box
completely and remove excess load by hand before
dumping.
•
•
•
Reconnect the tailgate to the cargo box. Do not
drive the vehicle with cargo box in the raised
position.
•
•
Loading the Cargo Box
WARNING: The utility vehicle may become
unstable if the cargo box is loaded
incorrectly. Avoid loose and shifting loads or
uneven loading of material.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not tow a load that exceeds 1200 lbs.(545.5 kg)
rolling weight (i.e. trailer plus cargo) and never
exceed 100lbs (45.5kg) tongue weight.
Go slow when towing a heavy load. Allow for
increased braking distance. Tow load at a speed
slow enough to maintain control.
Do not tow on slopes greater than 5°.
Be particularly cautious when towing down even a
gradual slope or turning. The extra weight tends to
push the tow vehicle and may cause you to lose
control (braking and steering ability are reduced;
towed equipment may jack-knife).
IMPORTANT:Extreme angles such as high railroad
crossings can place high bending loads on hitch
connection. If traversing terrain where these conditions
exist, use of a ball or pintle type hitch is recommended.
Verify cargo box is latched before loading.
Securely anchor all loads in cargo box and do not
load beyond maximum capacity.
The maximum box capacity is 1000 lbs (454.5 kg).
When loading objects into vehicle, be sure load is
securely anchored and evenly distributed in cargo
box.
Do not load above height of cargo box front panel.
Load could shift forward striking driver or
passenger or cause driver to loose control of
vehicle.
Avoid loads which exceed physical dimensions of
cargo box.
Avoid concentrated loads at rear or side of cargo
box. Be sure load is distributed evenly.
Reduce load and ground speed when operating
over rough or hilly terrain. DO NOT overload
vehicle. Limit loads to those that can be safely
controlled.
•
Always use approved hitch and hitch point provided
for the utility vehicle. Do not modify the hitch in any
way.
Transporting Vehicle
IMPORTANT: Never tow the vehicle. Transaxle damage
will occur if vehicle is towed. Haul the vehicle on a
heavy-duty trailer or on a full-size truck.
•
•
•
Drive utility vehicle onto the trailer or truck and
leave transaxle gearshift lever in forward or
reverse.
Apply parking brake and turn fuel shut-off valve to
OFF position during transport.
Fasten vehicle to trailer or truck with straps, chains,
or cables.
