BATTERY STATUS METER
When the key is fully inserted the key switch, this meter indicates
approximate battery strength. For further information on the battery
condition meter, see page 5 on batteries and charging.
REAR SECTION
The manual freewheel lever, ant-tip wheels, and motor/transaxle assembly are located on the rear section of your scooter. (See figure 2).
MANUAL FREEWHEEL LEVER
Whenever you need or want to push your scooter for short distance,
you can put it in freewheel mode.
- The manual freewheel lever is located at the right of the rear section.
- Pull up the manual freewheel lever to disengage the driving system
you may now push your scooter manually.
- Push the manual freewheel lever down to reengage the driving systems, this changes your scooter to power drive mode.
ANTI-TIP WHEELS
The anti-tip wheels are an integral part and make an important safety
feature of your scooter. Do not, under any circumstances, remove the
anti-tip wheels from your scooter.
MOTOR TRANSAXLE ASSEMBLY
The motor transaxle assembly is an electromechanical device that converts
electrical energy from your scooter batteries into the controlled mechanical energy that drives the scooter’s wheels.
BATTERY PACK
The scooter is equipped with an innovative, easy to remove battery pack.
A handle on the top of the battery pack makes it easy to lift the pack off
the scooter with one hand. The battery pack contains two 12 volt, 17AH
batteries, the fuse and the charger receptacle.
OFF –BOARD BATTERY CHARGER
Plug the output of the charger into the charger receptacle on the battery,
then plug the charger input into the wall outlet to charge.
4
BATTERY
Your scooter is equipped with two sealed, maintenance free 17 AH
batteries.
- Charge the batteries prior to using your scooter for the first time.
- Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running
smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLUME
The battery volume meter on the tiller console uses a color code to
indicate the condition of your batteries. Green indicates fully charged
batteries, yellow a draining charge, and red indicates that an immediate
recharging is necessary.
CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
The following steps will guide in charging the battery safely:
- Position your scooters close to a standard wall outlet .
- Remove the key from the key switch.
- Plug the 3-pin charger cord into the battery receptacle.
- Plug the charger input into the wall outlet to charge. It is recommended that you charge your batteries for 8 to 14 hours.
- When fully charged, unplug the charger input cord form the wall
outlet first and then unplug the charger output cord from the battery
receptacle.
5
CHARGING STATUS
There is a LED on the charger, when lit:
Power (green)
Charger (red)
Charging is in progress
Power(green)
Charger is plugged in; batteries
Charger (green) fully charged
Power(red)
Charger (off)
Error: short circuit, lead reversed,
battery disconnected
*If the LED toggles between red and green:
The battery has dropped too low and needs normal charging, causing the
charger to automatically pulse charge the batteries to an acceptable level.
Once that level is reached it will charge normally.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
1. Removes battery pack from the scooter by releasing the battery pack
lock, grasping the handle, and lifting up.
2.Remove all screws that hold the battery pack.
3. Remove the connectors and replace the used battery with the new one.
BATTERY F.A.Q.
How does the charger work?
When your scooter’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder,
sending more electrical current to the battery to bring up their charge.
When the voltage approaches full level, the charger is at nearly zero
amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the
charging on your scooter’s batteries, but will not overcharge them. But
we do not recommend that you charge your scooter for more than 24
consecutive hours.
What if my scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
Ensure that both ends of the charger cord are inserted fully.
How often must I charge the batteries?
It depends on how often you use it:
- If you use your scooter daily, charge its batteries everyday. Your scooter will be ready each morning to give you a full day of service.
- If you use your scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least
once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time.
- Keep your scooter’s batteries fully charged.
- Avoid discharging your scooter’s batteries.
What type and size battery should I use?
Your scooter is equipped with two deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and
maintenance free. Use only the battery model designed for this scooter
that is supplied by Moose Mobility Scooter Co.
NOTE: Sealed batteries are not serviceable. Do not remove the caps.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
New batteries will not delivery their full capabilities until they have been
discharged and recharged in about 5 times.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and
extended battery life. Keep your scooter’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.

OPERATION
ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE
BEFORE GETTING ONTO YOUR SCOOTER
- Have you fully charged the batteries? See page 5, “Batteries and
charging.”
- Ensure that the manual freewheel lever in the open (power driven)
position? Never leave the manual freewheel lever in the close position
unless you are manually pushing your scooter.
- Ensure that the tiller lock knob is in the locked position? See page 9,
“Disassembly and assembly.”
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect powered scooter
and motorized scooters. Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of
unintended brake release or powered scooter movement, which could result in serious injury.
OPERATING YOUR SCOOTER
- After planning your route:
- Set the speed adjustment dial to your desired speed. The turtle indications slower speed, and the rabbit indications faster speed.
- Press the throttle control lever to move and release the lever to stop.
The green lever moves the scooter forward, and the red lever moves the
scooter backward.
Note: your scooter’s backward speed is slower than forward speed for
the safety reasons.
1) Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers), such as citizens band
(CB) radios, or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the
powered scooter is turned ON.
2) Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid coming
close to them;
3) If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the powered scooter OFF as soon
as it is safe.
4) Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered scooter, may
make it more susceptible to EMI (Note: There is no easy way to evaluate their effect on the
overall immunity of the powered scooter.
5) Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered scooter
manufacturer, and note whether there is a source of EMI nearby.
If unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn the power OFF as soon as it is safe.
FDA recommends that you report all incidents of unintended motion or brake release to us
or your dealer, and if possible, note whether there was a radio wave source nearby at the time
of the incident. You may also report to FDA’s Med Watch problem reporting program. Call
1-800-FDA-1088 and ask for Form 3500.
The following warning label is included in order to make users always aware that a possibility
of electromagnetic interference exists.
