Introduction
Congratulations on your new Mini Crosser M-MaxX 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 User Manual
carefully. As a new user, you should pay particular attention to
the section entitled “Driving the Mini Crosser M-MaxX”.
The Mini Crosser M-MaxX is designed for safe travel for at least
10 years, up to a max. of 5,000 hours, provided it is serviced and
safety-checked every year, corresponding to 500 hours of operation.
The service must be carried out by an authorised workshop.
IMPORTANT! For safety reasons it is of the utmost importance
that service and safety check intervals are complied with, as
this minimises the risk of brake failure and short-circuits in the
wiring, which could generate heat and cause a fire.
We offer a wide range of accessories for the Mini Crosser
M-MaxX that can make everyday life easier for you. You are
always welcome to contact us for further information on special
accessories and adaptations.
Medema Production A/S is not responsible for any damage or injuries
caused by inappropriate or unsafe use of the Mini Crosser M-MaxX.

Designation
Description
Key switch
To start the vehicle:
Turn the key to driving position (1) When the Mini Crosser
is turned on, the control system performs a safety check of
the electrical system. The check lasts half a second. If the
accelerator is operated during this time, the Mini Crosser will not
be able to move until you have turned the key to 0 and back to 1.
Speed selector
The tortoise in minimum position indicates the lowest speed
range. 0-6 km/h
The hare in maximum position indicates the highest speed
range. Up to 11,5 km/h
Battery indicator
Lights up when the key is turned. After approximately 1
second, indicates the batteries’ charge level. Provides a more
accurate indication after a few minutes driving. This is not an
exact measurement and you must therefore build up some
experience with it. In the same way as the petrol gauge on a
car.
When the red light is farthest from “1”, there is plenty of power
in the batteries. When the red light is farthest from “0” and
flashing, it is close to being completely discharged.
Accelerator
Activate the arm at the front slowly and the Mini Crosser will
start to move forwards. The more the arm is pressed, the faster
the Mini Crosser will move. When the arm is released, it will flip
back to starting position of its own accord and the Mini Crosser
will stop. Activating the rear arm will cause the Mini Crosser to
reverse. The magnetic brake on the rear wheels will engage
when the scooter is stationary and is equivalent to the parking
brake on a car. The accelerator can also be used to control
speed downhill. In this case the motor will act as a brake.
(See picture
below)
Light switch
Turns on the front and rear lights. The key switch must be in
position 1 (driving position).
Hazard warning
lights
Turns on all the indicator lights at once. Also works when the
key is removed or turned to position 0 (stop position).
Indicator switch
Left arrow: indicator, left-hand side. Right arrow: indicator, righthand side. Activate the same switch to turn the indicators off.
Horn
Powerful electric horn. Press the horn switch to activate.

Driving the Mini Crosser M-MaxX
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 M-MaxX 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, turn the seat through 45° or 90° and make sure that
it is locked in position (clicked into place).
If necessary, raise the armrest.
For some users the assistance of an attendant can be
recommended. The attendant should:
•
•
•
Take care not to injure him/herself when lifting/lowering/supporting
the user.
Make sure that the Mini Crosser is stable and unable to move.
Turn off the Mini Crosser and check that the brake is on and the
seat has been rotated until it clicks into place at either 45° or 90°.
Make sure that the seat the user is being moved to is stable.
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).
User guide P9-0135-B
14 of 52
Turn the Mini Crosser off, return the
steering column to upright position, rotate
the seat and raise the armrest.
Version 1.0.3/2012
Medema Production A/S
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 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.
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.
User guide P9-0135-B

Version 1.0.3/2012
Medema Production A/S
Never drive when under the influence. This applies not only to
alcohol, but also to drugs and medicines.
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.
As far as possible, grip the handlebars firmly with both hands.
Take care not to have anything in the basket at the front that
might inadvertently operate the accelerator.
WARNING! Do not lower the handlebars so far that the
accelerator can hit you on the leg when you turn the vehicle and
so be operated in advertently. If the handlebars need to be very
low, a twist grip accelerator is recommended. This is particularly
relevant if leg supports are being used.
ALWAYS switch the scooter off when it is not in use. Turn the
key to 0.
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.

New users are urged to practise the following in an area where
there is no other traffic:
•
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.
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 11.5 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 P9-0135-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.

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 your Mini Crosser’s motor from overheating, there
is a built-in Thermo switch that will make the Mini Crosser stop
if the motors become too hot. The battery indicator will flash.
Next, the Mini Crosser must cool for 3 to 5 minutes, before it
can run again.
Note:
The situation described above will never happen in normal use.
It only happens if the conditions are extremely challenging.

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.
We therefore recommend fitting anti-tilt wheels in such
circumstances. (See picture below)
(Anti-tilt wheels / stabilisers are optional extras.)

General care and maintenance
A Mini Crosser M-MaxX 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 accelerator is activated.
Test the electrical release mechanism.
Test that the Mini Crosser can be pushed when the electrical
release button is held. When the button is released, it can no
longer be pushed.
Lubricate the lever arm on the brake hub with acid-free oil - lefthand rear wheel.

Annual
The Mini Crosser M-MaxX is designed for safe travel for at least
10 years, up to a max. of 5,000 hours, provided it is serviced
and safety-checked every year, corresponding to 500 hours of
operation. The service must be carried out by an authorised
workshop.
IMPORTANT! For safety reasons it is of the utmost importance
that the servicing and safety check intervals are complied with,
as this minimises the risk of brake failure and short-circuits in
the wiring, which could generate heat and cause a fire.
(For further information see the Service Manual.)
Insurance
In the eyes of the law a Mini Crosser M-MaxX with a maximum
speed of 11.5 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-MaxX 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.
User guide P9-0135-B

Batteries
The Mini Crosser uses sealed, maintenance-free GEL batteries
(Exide 12 V/56 Ah or AGM 12 V/71 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.
Det anbefales at batterierne lades op hver nat, hvis scooteren
har været benyttet.
User guide P9-0135-B
26 of 52
Version 1.0.3/2012
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 Danmark 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 to protect it from dust, rain and sunlight.
Cleaning
Clean the Mini Crosser M-MaxX 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:
•
Automatic overload protection, which limits the current to the
motor. This protection is integral to the control system and cannot
be adjusted. It prevents both the control system and the motor
from being overloaded. In the event of overload the current to the
motor is reduced - full speed and traction can be resumed after
the motor has cooled down for 2-5 minutes.
•
The control fuse protects against mains faults. It is located under
the rear cover.
•
The main fuse protects against short-circuits in the main current
circuit. The fuses are located under the rear cover behind the
batteries. Fuse type DIN 2581 - 150a.
•
If the ignition key is turned at the same time as the accelerator is
operated, the vehicle will not move off for safety reasons.
•
The lights and horn are protected by electronic fuses, which
protect against any short-circuiting that may occur. To prevent
accidental short-circuiting when a bulb is changed, the Mini
Crosser must be turned off when the new bulb is fitted and then
turned on again afterwards.

Brakes
There are three braking systems on the Mini Crosser M:
•
•
Motor brake
Magnetic brake
•
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 the key switch. Please note that this
will cause very sharp braking. The rear wheels will lock!
Must not be used in the normal course of driving!
Disengagement
There is two ways to disengage the M-MaxX. Mechanical and
electrical.
Mechanical release
•
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.
Push the disengagement lever up to
disengage and push down to reactivate
the motor (normal driving now possible).

Electrical release
•
Hold the disengagement button pressed in to disengage (can be
pushed or towed with max 5 km/h – see section about Towing). As
soon as you let go of the disengagement button, the motor brake is
working again (normal driving now possible).
Disengagement button
NOTE!
The motor brake must never be disengaged on sloping
terrain.
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
fi tting 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.

Transporting by motor vehicle
The Mini Crosser must always be restrained 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”.
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
For transport in an estate car,
the seat can be lifted off and the
handlebars folded down. This
reduces the maximum height to
70 cm.
