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.

Driving the Mini Crosser M2 Cabin
Getting in and out
It is important to learn a safe technique for getting in and out of the Mini
Crosser.
In general the following method should be followed:
•
•
•
•
Make sure that the Mini Crosser M2 Cabin is off (switch turned to 0) when
getting in and out, otherwise the Mini Crosser could start if the accelerator was
touched inadvertently.
Make sure that the brake is on. (Lever for disengaging motor in top position.)
Put the steering column in vertical position.
If necessary, raise the armrest.
Note! - Do NOT use the dors as support, when entering or getting out of the
vehicle.
IMPORTANT!
The Mini Crosser will turn itself off automatically after it has been stationary
for 10 minutes even if the key has been turned to driving position.
To restart the vehicle, the key must be turned to stop position (0) and then
to driving position (1).

When driving in traffic...
Be particularly aware of the following when driving in traffic:
•
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.
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.

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 the key switch. Please note that this will cause very
sharp braking.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.
•
Electric safety brake - if the brake is somehow disengaged on a slope/hill, the
Mini Crosser will brake automatically when it reaches a certain speed. There is
an electric safety feature in the control system, which works even if the battery
is disconnected. This is also the reason why the Mini Crosser cannot be towed
at more than 5 km/h. See the section about towing.
•
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
ALWAYS switch the scooter off when it is not in use. Turn the key to 0.

Charging
The Mini Crosser should be charged while not in use. The charger supplied
from the factory switches 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.
IMPORTANT!
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.
For further information see the User Manual.
Connect the charging plug to the 3-pin socket
on the steering column. The charging socket
is located under the protective cover.

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
•
•
•
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
•
•
•
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.

Long hills/difficult ground
The Mini Crosser is at risk of overheating on very long and steep hills or on
very soft ground, possibly also combined with high user weight.
To protect the Mini Crosser motor from overheating, there is a built-in
thermoswitch, which initially sets the Mini Crosser to half speed.
However, if you carry on moving over difficult ground, the Mini Crosser will
at some stage stop completely, and the battery indicator will flash with 6
lamps. The Mini Crosser must be left to cool down for 3-5 minutes before it
can start again.
To reset the fault, switch off the Mini Crosser then turn it on again.
If the Mini Crosser has not had long enough to cool down when it is
restarted, it will initially only run at half speed.
Note:
The situation described above will never happen in normal use. It only
happens if the conditions are extremely challenging.
