SAFETY
GENERAL
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new PMV for the first time without completely reading
and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your PMV is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an extensive
variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the PMV user. Please be aware that the final selection and
purchasing decision regarding the type of PMV to be used is the responsibility of the PMV user who is capable of
making such a decision.
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the PMV
to the user and has assisted the Pride Provider in the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the PMV user will need to practice operating the PMV in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family member or care
professional specially trained in assisting a PMV user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your PMV during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you will need
some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver through
doorways, on and off elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the PMV safely.
MODIFICATIONS
Pride has designed and engineered your PMV to provide maximum mobility and utility. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any feature, part, or function of your PMV.
WARNING! Do not modify your PMV in any way not authorized by Pride. Unauthorized
modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your PMV.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your PMV by any of its removable parts. Personal
injury and damage to the PMV may result.

SAFETY
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your PMV and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check before
each use to make sure your PMV operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your PMV:
! Check for proper tire inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
! Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
! Check all harness connections. Make sure they are secured properly.
! Check the brakes.
! Check battery charge.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride Provider for assistance.
TIRE INFLATION
If your PMV is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least once a
week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of your
PMV.
WARNING! It is critically important that 50 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic
tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in
loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 50 psi tire pressure in
pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal
injury and/or damage to your PMV.
WARNING! Inflate your PMV tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting
in a burst tire and/or personal injury.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your PMV is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your PMV. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property
damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your PMV. Carrying passengers may result in personal
injury and/or property damage.
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your PMV.
! Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
! Take wide swings with your PMV around any tight corners. If you do that, the PMV’s rear wheels will follow
a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.
! When driving down a ramp, keep the PMV’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a
safely controlled descent.
! Avoid sudden stops and starts.

II.
SAFETY
When climbing an incline, try to keep your PMV moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and
driving in the forward direction only. If your PMV starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or
desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the throttle control
lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your PMV straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip
or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your PMV across the side of an incline or diagonally up or down an
incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the PMV in freewheel
mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! Even though your PMV is capable of climbing slopes greater than illustrated in
figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other
specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your PMV,
resulting in personal injury and/or damage to your PMV.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do not
necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, not designed
specifically for PMVs. Figure 1 illustrates your PMV’s stability and its ability to climb grades under various weight
loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the PMV’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat base to
its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your PMV’s ability to travel up inclines is affected
by your weight, the PMV’s speed, the angle of approach to the incline, and your PMV setup.

II.
SAFETY
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the center of gravity of
you and your PMV toward the front of the PMV for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the
powered PMV may "rollback" approximately 1 foot before the brake engages. If the throttle control
lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered PMV may "rollback" approximately 3 feet before
the brake engages.
Figure 2. Normal Driving Position
Figure 2A. Increased Stability Driving Position
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of
tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road
surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from
a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High
cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and
steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your PMV from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your PMV at higher
speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid
personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your PMV is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
! Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the center/
stop position.
! Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.
! Handbrake: Gives you additional stopping power when squeezed.

SAFETY
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your PMV is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your PMV is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and
gravel. Feel free to use your PMV safely on lawns and in park areas.
! Reduce your PMV’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
! Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
! Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
! If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! Use extreme caution when operating your PMV on public streets and roadways.
Be aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your PMV.
Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then
proceed with extreme caution.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (curbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your PMV climb or descend an obstacle that is
inordinately high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your PMV proceed rearward down any step, curb, or
other obstacle. This may cause the PMV to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Be sure your PMV is traveling perpendicular to any curb you may be required to
ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 4.72 in.

SAFETY
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
Exposure of your PMV to inclement weather conditions should be avoided whenever possible. If suddenly caught
up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your PMV proceed to shelter at the earliest opportunity.
Thoroughly dry your PMV before storing, charging, or operating your PMV.
WARNING! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions, and on icy/slippery surfaces
can cause personal injury and/or damage to the PMV and electrical system. Maintain and
store your PMV in a dry and clean condition.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your PMV is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pushed down, allows the PMV to be pushed. For
more information about how to place your PMV into and out of freewheel mode, see IV. “Your PMV.”
WARNING! When your PMV is in freewheel mode, the braking system is disengaged.
! Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface.
! Ensure the key is removed from the key switch.
! Stand behind the PMV to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on a
PMV to do this.
! After you have finished pushing your PMV, always return it to the drive mode to lock
the brakes.
Failure to heed the above could result in personal injury and/or damage to your PMV.
An added feature is built into the PMV which safeguards against gaining excessive speed while in freewheel
mode. If the freewheel lever is disengaged from drive mode while the key is in the on position, you will encounter resistance as the PMV’s controller activates regenerative braking preventing the vehicle from rolling freely.
Whenever freewheel mode is desired, the power must be off.
NOTE: If the PMV is placed in freewheel mode (manual freewheel lever pushed down) while the key is
in the “on” position, the PMV will not run until the manual freewheel lever is pulled up and the key is
turned to the “off” position, then back to the “on” position.
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
PMVs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your PMV to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause injury to
yourself and to others and/or damage your PMV.
DOORS
! Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
! Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
! Drive your PMV gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your PMV gently and slowly
rearwards to pull the door open.
LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be traveling with your PMV, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth
by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.

SAFETY
ELEVATORS
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s).
! If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or
allow the rubber door edge to contact the PMV and the door will reopen.
! Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or PMV accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
NOTE: If your PMV’s turning radius is greater than 60 in., it may be difficult to maneuver in elevators
and building entrances. Use caution when attempting to turn or maneuver your PMV in small spaces,
and avoid areas that might pose a problem.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
WARNING! PMV batteries are heavy (refer to specifications table). Lifting weight beyond
your capacity could result in personal injury. If necessary, get someone physically able to
lift the PMV batteries for you.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery.
Charging a frozen battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
WARNING! RED (+) cables must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK
(-) cables must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Failure to connect
your battery harnesses in the proper manner may result in personal injury and/or damage
to your PMV. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.
BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorized
Pride Provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorized Pride Provider will also have the necessary information
on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a
person while seated in a PMV.
Although your PMV may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not designed to provide proper restraint
during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the motor vehicle
seat with safety belts fastened securely.
WARNING! Do not sit on your PMV while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/or
property damage may result.
WARNING! Ensure your PMV and its batteries are properly secured when being transported.
Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your PMV.

SAFETY
PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle
control lever contact. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR PMV
Getting onto and off of your PMV requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety tips when
getting onto and off of your PMV:
! Remove the key from the key switch.
! Ensure that your PMV is not in freewheel mode. See IV. “Your PMV.”
! Make certain that the seat is locked into place.
! Flip up the armrests up to make getting onto and off of the PMV easier.
WARNING! Position yourself as far back as possible in the PMV seat to prevent the PMV
from tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause
the PMV to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the
PMV to tip and cause personal injury.
REACHING AND BENDING
Avoid reaching or bending while driving your PMV. Bending forward creates the risk of accidental throttle control
lever contact. Bending to the side while seated creates the risk of tipping. It is important to maintain a stable center
of gravity and keep the PMV from tipping. Pride recommends that the PMV user determine his/her personal
limitations and practice bending and reaching in the presence of a qualified attendant.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the
PMV deck or from either side of the PMV. Movements such as these may change your
center of gravity and the weight distribution of the PMV and cause your PMV to tip, possibly
resulting in personal injury.
WARNING! Prevent personal injury! Keep your hands away from the tires when driving. Be
aware that loose fitting clothing can become caught in drive tires.
POSITIONING BELTS
Your authorized Pride Provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining
your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your PMV safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your PMV, make sure it is
fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the PMV.

may impair your ability to drive safely.
ELECTROMAGNETIC AND RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE (EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves
can have an adverse affect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile twoway radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless
computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency
vehicles. In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every
electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the
greater the protection against EMI. This product has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/M.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops, and other types of radio
transmitters may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered mobility vehicle
due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these items while operating your mobility
vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility
vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your PMV in
any way not authorised by Pride.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance
of other electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI, go to the resource center on www.pridemobility.com. If
unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn the PMV off as soon as it is safe to do so. Call Pride at
800-424-8205 to report the incident.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does the charger work?
When your PMV’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder, sending more electrical current to the batteries
to bring up their charge. As the batteries approach a full charge, the charger sends less and less electrical current.
When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at nearly zero amperage. Therefore, when
the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your PMV’s batteries, but does not overcharge them. We do
not recommend that you charge your PMV’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if my PMV’s batteries won’t charge?
! Ensure the red (+) and black or blue (-) battery cables are connected properly to the battery terminals.
! Ensure both ends of the charger power cord are inserted fully.
Can I use a different charger?
For the safest, most efficient, and balanced charging of your PMV’s batteries, we prefer and highly recommend
simultaneous charging of both batteries with the off-board battery charger supplied with your PMV.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your PMV’s batteries:
! All day PMV use on a daily basis.
! Infrequent or sporadic PMV use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your PMV’s
batteries. We designed the charger so that it will not overcharge your PMV’s batteries. However, you may encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do not charge them on a regular
basis. Following the guidelines below will provide safe and reliable battery operation and charging.
! If you use your PMV daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your PMV will be
ready each morning. We recommend that you charge your PMV’s batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
! If you use your PMV once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time.
! Keep your PMV’s batteries fully charged.
! Avoid deeply discharging your PMV’s batteries.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your PMV’s batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, or
stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely will you have ideal driving conditions—smooth, flat, hard driving surfaces with no wind or curves. Often, you will
face hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind, all of which affect the distance or
running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range per battery charge.
! Always fully charge your PMV’s batteries prior to daily use.
! Maintain 50 psi in each tire.
! Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible.

NOTE: If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call
your authorized Pride Provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorized Pride Provider will also
have the necessary information on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries (nicads), and other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power,
drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge.
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your PMV’s specific electrical
demands. Batteries are shipped fully charged to our customers. During shipping, the batteries may encounter
temperature extremes that can influence their initial performance. Heat diminishes the charge on the battery; cold
slows the available power and extends the time needed to recharge the battery.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your PMV’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or
ambient temperature.
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (partial draining followed by full recharging) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life.
Follow these steps to properly break in your PMV’s new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life.
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This charging cycle brings the battery up to about 88% of
its peak performance level.
2. Operate your new PMV in familiar and safe areas. Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from your
home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to your PMV’s controls and have properly
broken in your PMV’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your PMV again.
5. Fully recharge the batteries again.
6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak performance
level and are able to last for an extended period of time.
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation with your PMV, you must contact the transportation provider in advance
to determine their specific requirements.
