Introduction
Congratulations on your new Mini Crosser M Joy electric
mobility scooter.
You have now taken possession of an electric mobility scooter
developed for outdoor driving by active users. It is what is
called a Class C vehicle in accordance with the European
classification of electric scooters.
For optimum enjoyment of this vehicle - and to avoid
breakdowns and accidents - we recommend that you read this

Safety check Joystick
Daily safety check:
The electronic system has an integrated safety check which
runs up to 100 times per minute. To supplement this check, you
should carry out the following regular checks.
•
•
•
•
Switch off the electronic system (no lights in the display)
Check if the joystick is bent
Check if the joystick is damaged in any other way
Check that it returns to the central position when you release it
If the check reveals any problems, contact a competent service
engineer before using the scooter again.
Weekly safety check:
Parking brake: This test must be carried out on a flat surface
with at least one metre of free space around the scooter.
•
•
Start the scooter and slowly move the joystick forward. There is a
clicking sound. (The scooter may start to move in this setting).
Immediately release the joystick and listen for the clicking sound,
which should occur within one second.
Repeat in all directions.
•
•
Check that the rubber bellows around the joystick is intact. This
is important, as the bellows prevent moisture getting into the
electronic system.
Check that the control box is properly secured.
If the check reveals any problems, contact a competent service
engineer before using the scooter again.
Monthly check
Check the tyre pressure at least once a month. It should be 2.8
bar.

General care and maintenance
A Mini Crosser M Joy does not require much maintenance. It
should be kept in a generally good condition, however. The
following should be checked regularly:
•
•
•
•
Tyre pressure (if pneumatic tyres are fitted)
Tyre wear
Keep the control panel, the charging socket and the electronics
box under the seat dry.
Battery charging
Never wash the Mini Crosser with a high-pressure cleaner
or direct water jet! This could damage the Mini Crosser’s
electronics.
To keep the Mini Crosser in good condition safety-wise, we
recommend the following regular checks:
Daily:
•
Test the indicators and driving lights before using the Mini Crosser
in the dark or poor visibility.
Every three months:
Test the brakes and motor disengagement
With the disengagement lever up, it must not be possible to
push the Mini Crosser.
Test the brake disengagement function
When the brake disengagement lever is down, the battery
indicator should flash to show an error if the Mini Crosser is
turned on. In this case the Mini Crosser must not be able to
move when the joystick is activated.
Test the handbrake.
Apply the handbrake for a couple of seconds at low speed. This
will ensure that the lever arm and brake shoes do not seize up.
Lubricate the lever arm on the brake hub with acid-free oil - lefthand rear wheel.

(More information in the service manual).
Insurance
In the eyes of the law a Mini Crosser M Joy with a maximum
speed of 10 km/h is a cycle, so separate insurance is not
required.
Most contents/home insurance policies include third-party
liability insurance for cyclists and so also cover Mini Crosser M
Joy users.
We recommend that you talk to your insurance company about
this when the vehicle is delivered. If necessary, comprehensive
insurance will have to be taken out separately.

Seat rotation
Pull the release lever back. The seat can be rotated 90° to
either side. When the lever is released, it engages with the seat
and holds it in place at 45° intervals.
Other seats that can be supplied for the Mini Crosser work on
similar principles. The release lever is normally mounted on the
right, but can be put on the left if so wished.
IMPORTANT!
The Mini Crosser is most stable when the seat is in its lowest
position. Always drive carefully when the seat is raised. Never
use the seat adjustment when driving on an uneven surface or
in hilly terrain.
Take extra care when lowering the seat on a Mini Crosser using
electric seat adjustment. Make sure that nothing is trapped in
the space between the seat and the chassis.
Avoid trapping anything when lowering the seat.

Braking systems
There are three braking systems on the Mini Crosser:
•
Motor brake - adjusts vehicle speed also when going downhill.
•
Magnetic brake - the magnetic brake is automatic and engages
when the Mini Crosser stops. In an emergency, the Mini
Crosser can be stopped instantaneously by turning of the
joystick. Please note that this will cause very sharp braking.
The rear wheels will lock.
Must NOT be used in the normal course of driving.
The brake must never be disengaged mechanically using the
disengagement lever on a slope. This function is only designed
for use when pushing the Mini Crosser on a flat road.
•
Handbrake - intended as an emergency brake and parking
brake. It must be operated with caution when driving in
slippery conditions and downhill.
When using the handbrake as a parking
brake, lock it in braking position by
pressing the button in while applying the
brake.
To release the brake, press the button
again.
Handbrake lock
General safety advice
Make sure that the backrest is upright and the seat is as low as
possible.
Positioning belts are recommended if the user is unable to
maintain a good driving posture independently.
Adjust your driving to road conditions. Take account of light,
traffic and weather. Be particularly careful when driving in the
dark or in bad weather, such as rain or snow. Avoid driving on
gradients with poor surfaces, such as: snow, ice, new-mown
grass, wet grass and wet leaves.
Never drive when under the influence. This applies not only to
alcohol, but also to drugs and medicines.
User guide P9-0158-B
18 of 48
Version 1.0.2/2011
Medema Production A/S
Reduce speed immediately if you feel you are losing control.
Always use the indicators when changing direction.
Check that lights and indicators are working before driving off.
Use your lights when driving after lighting-up time.
ALWAYS switch the scooter off when it is not in use. I/O button.
Driving
Even though the Mini Crosser is very stable, it can tip over.
Avoid sudden changes of speed and direction when travelling at
high speed, on poor surfaces and, not least, on slopes.
For short distances the Mini Crosser can drive up steeper
gradients than it has been tested as dynamically stable for. The
same applies to driving down such gradients. In such cases
there is an increased risk of the Mini Crosser tilting and even
tipping over. So be extra careful in following the driving tips
given below.
Anti-tilt wheels are recommended for driving in very hilly terrain.
(Optional extra)
New users are urged to practise the following in an area where
there is no other traffic:
User guide P9-0158-B
•
Set the Mini Crosser to low speed. Drive forwards and backwards.
Gradually turn the speed selector up and feel the change in the
speed of the Mini Crosser.
•
Practise starting and braking. Get used to the Mini Crosser’s
response time.
•
Practise driving in a narrow space, similar to inside a shop or
through a door.
•
Practise turning, and get a sense of how much space is required.
Always drive slowly when turning. Practise reversing too.
•
Practise cornering and driving over obstacles and on slopes.
19 of 48
Version 1.0.2/2012
Medema Production A/S
Always drive straight up/down kerbs and ramps. Never at an
angle. See the illustrations on the following pages.
•
Try braking at different speeds and notice the stopping distances.
•
If possible, try driving on different surfaces (road, grass and
gravel).
•
Practise assessing how far you can drive on a single battery
charge. Note how quickly the battery indicator changes from
green to amber to red.
Note!
The driving distance of the scooter will be reduced when driving
in hilly districts, into a head wind, in cold weather and with low
tyre pressure.
Traffic regulations
The traffic legislation for scooters varies from country to
country. Before starting to use the vehicle outdoors, it is the
user’s responsibility to familiarise him/herself with the relevant
legislation.
The following rules apply in Denmark:
Mobility vehicles such as the Mini Crosser with a maximum
speed of up to 10 km/h count as cycles in traffic legislation and
the traffic regulations for cycles must be followed at speeds in
excess of 6 km/h.
At speeds of up to 6 km/h the Mini Crosser is regarded as a
“pedestrian”, and it is permissible to travel on the pavement at
this speed. “Tortoise” speed corresponds to approx. 6 km/h.
Lights must only be used during lighting-up time. Crash helmet
and seat belts are not compulsory.

Electromagnetic compatibility
If the Mini Crosser starts making involuntary movements or if
the brakes are released, turn the Mini Crosser off as soon as it
is safe to do so. In certain circumstances a Mini Crosser can set
off shop alarms.
The Mini Crosser satisfies the requirements for the use of
scooters in an environment with electromagnetic noise. There
may, however, be rare situations in which electromagnetic noise
can affect the Mini Crosser. Sources of such noise include radio
and television stations, amateur radio transmitters and mobile
phones.
If such equipment is being used close by, it is recommended
that the Mini Crosser is switched off. Mobile phones should not
be used while driving.
When driving in traffic...
Be particularly aware of the following when driving in traffic:
User guide P9-0158-B
•
The Mini Crosser is a low vehicle and not always easy for other
road users to see. Make quite sure that other road users have
seen you before driving onto the highway.
•
Keep an eye on traffic behind you. Keep well over to the side of
the road when driving on busy roads.
•
Turning right and left at crossroads. Be aware of cyclists and
pedestrians. Follow the rules of the road for cyclists.
•
How quickly things are happening. How long do the lights stay
green? How quickly are cars approaching? etc.

Specific driving situations
Up kerbs
•
•
•
•
Stop at right angles to the kerbstone about 5-10 cm away from it.
Keep an eye on other road users.
Lean forwards.
Accelerate moderately so that your vehicle can overcome the
obstacle. Do not stop halfway, but reduce speed once the vehicle
is up.
If the kerb is too high, do not try again, but find an alternative
route.
Down kerbs
•
•
•
User guide P9-0158-B
Lean back.
If you are driving onto a road with traffic, keep an eye on other
road users.
Drive forwards and down the kerb at low speed. Make sure that
your anti-tilt wheels (if fitted) do not catch on the edge.

Up a ramp/hill
•
•
•
•
There is a risk of tipping over backwards if the seat is pushed
back when you start driving up a slope, e.g. a ramp.
Pull the seat forward! Check that any ramp is stable.
Lean forwards.
Accelerate moderately so that your vehicle can overcome the
obstacle. Do not stop halfway. Reduce speed once the vehicle is
up. If you need to start on a hill, accelerate slowly so as not to tip
over backwards.
Down a ramp/hill
•
•
•
User guide P9-0158-B
Check that any ramp is stable.
Lean back.
Drive slowly down. Avoid stopping midway on short, steep slopes.
On long hills, it is advisable to stop every now and again if you
feel your speed is getting too high.

Across a slope
•
•
•
Lean into the slope.
Avoid sudden and sharp movements. This is particularly relevant
when reversing.
Always drive at low speed.
Anti-tilt wheels / stabilisers
The Mini Crosser is a very stable vehicle. HOWEVER, in the
case of incorrect weight distribution or careless driving there is
a risk of tipping over. On the M Joy this risc is increased due to
the more laid back position, and that there is no stearing column
to hold on to.
That is why the anti-tilt wheels are standard equipment on M
Joy. (See picture below). In the front is mounted a weight block.

Batteries
The Mini Crosser uses sealed, maintenance-free GEL batteries
(Exide 12 V/56 Ah or AGM 12 V/75 Ah).
They do not generate gas and do not have to be topped up with
water.
Charging
Please NOTE that the Mini Crosser can be equipped with
several types of charger (ask your dealer for information on the
various types).
IMPORTANT! Only ever use a charger designed for charging dry
maintenance-free batteries. The max. charging current is 12 A.
If charging is to take place outdoors, an enclosed charger
without a fan should be chosen.
The battery manufacturer recommends charging the batteries at
temperatures between +10° and +30°C in order to achieve the
charging times specified in “Technical data”.
Charging will take longer at temperatures below +20°C. This is
because the battery finds it more difficult chemically to absorb
the current.
Please NOTE that the capacity of the batteries will reduce
over time and at low temperatures. In practice this means that
vehicles with old batteries have a shorter driving distance than
they had when the batteries were new.
Battery capacity at -10°C is about half the equivalent capacity at
+20°C.
User guide P9-0158-B
25 of 48
Version 1.0.2/2012
Medema Production A/S
Avoid draining the batteries completely. We recommend
charging the batteries in a heated room. If it is not possible to
do this every day, it is a good idea to charge the Mini Crosser in
a heated room (approx. 20°C) once a week.
New batteries do not reach full capacity until they have been
charged and discharged about 20 times.
It is IMPORTANT to fit the batteries correctly. The battery terminals
and snap locks are marked +/-. They must be fitted as shown in the
sketch below. Make sure that the snap locks are properly closed.
For the same reason there must not be any burrs on the terminals.
The Mini Crosser should be charged while not in use. The
charger supplied from the factory switches over to trickle
charging (very low power consumption) automatically when the
batteries are fully charged. You can therefore leave the charger
connected until the Mini Crosser is next used. The charger
cannot overcharge the batteries.
The charger will flash until charging is complete. Then it will
show a steady light.
The charger must not be placed on the seat during charging.
IMPORTANT! Never use charging devices other than those
supplied from the factory without first contacting the dealer.

Battery disposal
Used batteries must be disposed of through your supplier or at
a recycling centre.
Take care when handling leaky batteries, as the gel contains
corrosive acid.
INFO!
New batteries can be purchased from Medema Production A/S.
Storage
The scooter should be stored and charged under cover,
preferably at temperatures above 0°C.
Note!
The charger must be kept dry, but should not be covered when
in use.
In the case of long-term storage we recommend covering the
Mini Crosser M Joy to protect it from dust, rain and sunlight.
Cleaning
Clean the Mini Crosser M Joy with a damp cloth. If necessary,
wipe dry with a chamois leather.
Wipe the covers dry and polish with car wax.
IMPORTANT! Never use a high-pressure cleaner or hose, as it
could damage the Mini Crosser’s electronics.

Fuses
The Mini Crosser has the following protection systems:
•
Thermal, which disconnects the power to the motor when
overloaded. This thermal fuse is placed on the back of the
scooter. The fuse protects against overloading of both steering
and engine. When overloaded, it will switch off the engine - full
speed and traction can be resumed after the motor has cooled
down for 2-5 minutes.
•
Mini Crosser M Joy also features a built-in fuse in the steering
box. This will turn off, for example. hard driving in wet grass
or very soft ground - wait 5 secs. Before you turn on the Mini
Crosser again. This fuse will be activated before the thermal jump.

•
•
•
Motor brake
Magnetic brake
Handbrake
•
Motor brake: adjusts vehicle speed also when going downhill.
•
Magnetic brake: automatic and comes on when accelerator is released.
It also acts as a parking brake when the Mini Crosser is at a standstill.
In an emergency, the Mini Crosser can be stopped instantaneously
by turning of the joystick. Please note that this will cause very sharp
braking. The rear wheels will lock!
Must not be used in the normal course of driving!
•
Handbrake: intended as an emergency brake and parking
brake. It must be operated with caution when driving in slippery
conditions and downhill.

Disengagement
•
Turn the vehicle off on the joystick (I/O).
•
Push the disengagement lever at the back down.
The motor brake is now disengaged and the vehicle can be
pushed or towed, but not driven.
NOTE!
The motor brake must never be disengaged on sloping terrain.
Once the motor brake has been disengaged, the Mini
Crosser can only be braked with the hand brake.
Push the disengagement lever down to
disengage (only handbrake works) and
push up to reactivate the motor (normal
driving now possible).

Transporting by motor vehicle
The Mini Crosser must always be restrained and the handbrake
locked during transport in a motor vehicle or trailer.
Avoid lifting by the seat, covers, handlebars and armrests
If you just need to lift the scooter slightly, take hold of it between
the rear lights and by the front bumper.
Secure it in the vehicle with belts attached to the two eyes at
the front and two at the back. All the eyes are marked in yellow.
See the section entitled “Securing to vehicle floor with belts”.

For transport in an estate car, the
Mini Crosser must be secured with
belts to the flor of the car
Eye for restraints
The Mini Crosser can be used as a seat during transport in
a van or bus, provided it is securely anchored to the vehicle
with approved four-point belts attached to the restraint points
provided on the Mini Crosser.
The Mini Crosser’s restraint points have been tested and
approved in accordance with ISO 7176-19.
The user must also always be independently restrained in the
actual motor vehicle in accordance with traffic legislation rules.
Example
Restraining the
passenger with a static
3-point seat belt:
Secure to the rearmost
retractors.
The shoulder belt must rest
against the collar bone and
fall diagonally to the hip,
where it is secured.
Tighten the belt by pulling on the loose strap. Undo it again by
lifting the buckle. This is the same as on an aircraft.

Medema Production A/S
Remember to turn the Mini Crosser off during transport. (I/O
button).
However, if at all possible, we recommend that the user
occupies one of the seats in the motor vehicle. All other things
being equal, this is safer.
Transporting by plane
If the Mini Crosser is to be transported by plane, the airlines
require:
•
•
•
the batteries to be flight-approved
the air to be let out of the tyres
the battery leads to be disconnected (not always, but frequently)
The seat and cover have to be removed to disconnect the
battery leads.
A battery declaration for air travel can be found on the Mini
Crosser website:
http://www.minicrosser.dk/Download_brochurer.asp
Towing
If you should be unfortunate enough to break down, the Mini
Crosser can be towed or pushed. The Mini Crosser must
always be turned off and the motor brake disengaged during
towing. See the section on Brakes.
If the Mini Crosser is to be towed, secure a rope to the tow
fitting on the front - marked with a yellow “hook mark”. Do not
tow faster than 5 km/h. The scooter will generate electricity
when it is towed, with the motor acting as a dynamo. If it
is towed at more than 5 km/h, there is a risk of the motor
generating enough electricity to damage the scooter and, in the
worst case, cause a fire.

The Dynamic electronic system is programmable so that the
driving characteristics can be optimised for individual users.
Programming must only be carried out by people trained in
Dynamic’s control systems. Changing parameters incorrectly
can produce driving characteristics that are dangerous for the
user.
Note
Mobile phones should not be used very close to the scooter
as they generate electromagnetic fields that may affect the
electronic system.
The electronic system of the scooter itself also generates some
electromagnetic fields, which on rare occasions may affect
equipment like the alarm systems in shops.
Dynamic’s control systems have been tested and meet the
requirements of ISO7176/14 and EN12184
