beverages.
16. If vehicle stops on an incline, DO NOT attempt to
continue.
17. DO NOT start and stop when stopped on an incline,
back down with the speed set at “slow” and back down
in one continuous movement.
1 8 . A LWAY S l e a n f o rw a r d w h e n t r a v e l i n g o n i n c l i n e s
( u p o r d o w n ) f o r g re a t e r s t a b i l i t y.
19. ALWAYS reduce to a safe speed when making a turn or
going around a corner.
4.
DO NOT transfer on or off the unit until it is turned OFF,
completely stopped, and on a stable and level surface.
20. ALWAYS allow ample time to come to a complete stop
when driving down aisle or making turns, especially in
crowded store conditions.
5.
DO NOT ride over curbs or other obstruction higher
than 3 inches.
21. ALWAYS turn the power off when the unit is not in use.
This will keep the unit from being accidentally moved.
6.
DO NOT stop when going up an incline. If you must do
so, always lean forward when you start to move. This

12. ALWAYS remember vehicle capacity is limited to one
person only. This unit is not approved for towing, or for
weights in excess of the published maximum.
13. ALWAYS drive straight up and down inclines.
14. REDUCE SPEED when traveling on (up or down)
inclines. Select the slowest speed setting that will still
allow the vehicle to climb the incline.
15. NEVER try to turn around on an incline!
28. MAINTAIN tire pressure as shown on the tire sidewall to
insure proper performance of your Scooter.
29. OPERATOR MUST REMAIN SEATED with the seat
locked in the forward position when the unit is moving.
30. NEVER hose off your Scooter. To clean, use a soapy
water solution.
31. NEVER use your Scooter in a shower or steam room.
32. NEVER charge batteries that may be frozen.

Important Information Regarding Electromagnetic Interference
(EMI)
It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects of electromagnetic interference
(EMI) on your scooter. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) refers to the effects that outside sources of
electromagnetic energy (radio and television broadcasts, CB radios, garage door openers, cellular telephones,
etc.) might have on the control systems of your scooter. The interference from these sources could cause the
scooter to release its brakes, move by itself, or to move in an unintended direction. EMI could also result in
permanent damage to the control system.
The sources of electromagnetic energy can be broadly classified into three types:
• Hand held, short range portable transceivers. These are transmitter/receivers with the antenna mounted
directly on the unit. Examples include: citizen band (CB) radios, “walkie-talkies”, security, fire and police
transceivers, and devices that transmit signals even when not in use.
• Medium range mobile transceivers. These usually have the antenna mounted outside of a vehicle or
building. Examples include police, fire, ambulance and taxi transceivers.
• Long-range transmitters and receivers. These usually have the antenna mounted on a tower. Examples
include commercial radio and television broadcasts and amateur (HAM) radios. Other types of hand-held
devices like cordless/cellular phones, laptop computers, AM/FM radios, and small appliances like hair
dryers or electric shavers may also generate electromagnetic energy, but it is such a small amount that no
EMI problems should occur with these devices.
The intensity of interference from electromagnetic energy is measured in volts per meter (v/m), which refers to the
strength of the electrical source (voltage) as it relates to the distance away from the object being considered (in
meters). Resistance of a Scooter to certain EMI intensity is commonly called its “immunity level”. An immunity
level of 10 volts/meter is a generally achievable and useful immunity level against interference from radio wave
sources (the higher the immunity level, the greater the protection).
Your Scooter has been tested and found to meet the required immunity level from Electromagnetic Interference of
20 v/m.
WARNING!
Even with an immunity level of 20 volts/meter, certain precautions
must be followed to ensure that your Scooter will not be affected by
outside electromagnetic sources:
• Do not operate hand-held transceivers such as citizen band (CB) radios or turn on powered communication
devices such while the Scooter is turned on.
• Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio and television stations, and avoid coming close to them.
• If an unintended movement should occur while operating the Scooter, turn the Scooter OFF as soon as it is
safe to do so.
• Be aware that if you do operate any electrically powered accessories, radios, or other devices, that your
scooter may become more susceptible to interference from outside electromagnetic source.
• Report all incidents of unintended movement or unexpected brake releases to the Service department of
Electric Mobility Corp.

Rascal R6 300 Scooter Owner’s Manual
4-Wheel Front End
The Model R6 300 uses a 4-wheel front end to provide the maximum in
stability over a variety of outdoor terrains. Sturdy, independent front
suspension provides greater comfort and a smoother ride.
Controls
An internal, on-board, digital controller provides all major driving and
operating functions directly from the dash of the handlebar or tiller. SelfDiagnostics provide troubleshooting information to detect electrical
problems or faults. Additionally, the controller includes a power save
feature and will shut down automatically in order to conserve battery
power when not operated for a set period of time. The scooter can be
turned on again by turning the ON/OFF keyswitch from on to off and
then on again.
Rear Section
A common rear section provides a central, easily accessible location for
controls, charger, wiring components, while serving as the mounting
point for the removable quick disconnect drivetrain.
Covers
Internal components are protected by a plastic rear cover of the scooter.
The rear cover can be removed for access to charger, controller, etc.
Charger, controller, and batteries are also protected by an internal cover
inside the rear plastic cover.
Seat
For super comfort, all Rascals include a padded, removable, swivel seat
with adjustable back angle and “flip-up” armrests. As an option, the seat
is mounted to an electrically operated seat lift to raise and lower the
seat 5” using controls mounted in the dash/tiller. A manually adjustable
seat post can also be supplied. A spring-loaded lever mounted on the
base of the seat allows it to be rotated and locked in position at each
45° increments.
Dash/Handlebar Assembly
The Model R6 300 is steered and operated by a removable handlebar
and dash assembly. Operation of the individual control components are
described in the “Controls” section of this manual (see page 6).
Drivetrain
The scooter is propelled by a motorized differential drivetrain mounted
at the rear of the scooter. It drives the two rear wheels for forward/
reverse motion. An integral parking brake mounted on the motor
maintains the vehicle’s stopped position when the engager is released.
The brake includes a manual release lever to disengage it to allow the
vehicle to be pushed by hand. The drivetrain assembly also includes the
rear suspension and serves as the mounting location for the rear bumper
and rear casters. The gearbox is a sealed unit. No maintenance or
servicing is necessary.
Wheels & Tires
The R6 300 model scooters include, as standard, foam tires.

Seat Lift Switch (Optional)
If your scooter is equipped with optional seatlift, you can
use this switch to raise and lower the seat automatically.
Operating this switch and using the right side Engager
Lever raises the seat. Using the left side Engager lever
lowers the seat.
The keyswitch on the dash must be in the “On” position
for the Seat Lift to operate.
If the scooter does not include the Seat Lift, this switch
will not function.
Always check switch position before using the scooter
(driving or raising/lowering the seat).
Note: For your safety the scooter will not operate if it
is in seat lift mode. Please ensure that seat lift switch
is in the “down” position before attempting to drive,
even if the scooter does not have a seat lift installed.

will operate with the key in the “Off” position.
Horn
Pressing either horn button on the control panel sounds
the horn. Releasing the button deactivates the horn. The
horn is useful to warn people that you are coming
towards them. You may also find it helpful to use it when
rounding blind corners or going in reverse.
Keyswitch
Electrical power to the scooter is controlled by a 2position keyswitch on the dash. Inserting the key and
turning it to the right turns power “On.” Turning it to the
left (key upright) turns power “Off.”
A set of 2 keys are supplied with each Rascal Scooter.
We recommend that you put one away in a secure place
in case you lose your operating key.
IMPORTANT!
Always turn scooter “Off” and remove key if you are leaving it
unattended for any period of time. This will prevent unauthorized or
accidental use.

•
•
•
•
Charging the Battery
Adjusting the Seat
Adjusting the Handlebar Assembly and Dash Position
Setting the Dashboard Clock
Charging Batteries
Because your batteries may only have a partial charge when you first receive your scooter, you may not
experience full riding time until you have fully charged them. Your scooter is equipped with an onboard battery charger. Charging your batteries as specified will ensure maximum life, power, and range.
It is recommended that you charge your batteries as follows:
• Upon initial receipt of your R6 300.
• For 8-10 hours (overnight) after daily use, regardless of battery level.
• If the fuel gauge indicator should go into the red area while operating your vehicle, the batteries
need to be recharged as soon as possible.
• The battery’s life expectancy may be shortened if they are left fully discharged for more than 24
hours.
EMC Part: 19277200 • Rev. 06 • 09/04/2007

Rascal R6 300 Scooter Owner’s Manual
Use the following to charge batteries of your Rascal scooter.
1. Park the vehicle near a 3-Prong Grounded Electrical Receptacle.
WARNING!
Use of a non-grounded receptacle could result in an electrical shock.
2. Lift the trunk lid and remove the power cord from
the trunk area. Plug power cord into a 3-Prong
Grounded Electrical Receptacle.
3. Check that the needle of the ammeter in the trunk
area registers greater than 1 to ensure that vehicle is
in charge mode. If batteries are fully charged and
have not discharged sufficiently (approx. 2.5% to
5%), the needle on the ammeter will remain at 0, as
shown in Illustration 3 and the needle on the Battery
Level Indicator on the dash will be located to the
extreme right of the green area indicating a full
charge on the battery (and no charging is required).
4. Normal charging time is generally 8-10 hours for
fully discharged batteries. The batteries are fully
charged when the needle of the ammeter is at 0. We
do not recommend that you leave your vehicle in
charge mode. There is no added benefit after
batteries have been fully charged.
5. Disconnect the power plug of the charger from the
wall outlet and return it to the trunk area. Close
trunk lid before proceeding.
Note: Vehicle will not operate while in charge mode.

Using the Scooter
Once you are familiar with the components, controls, charged the batteries, and any height or width
adjustments, you can follow these instructions in this section to operate it.
• Transferring On & Off
• Driving
• Freewheel Operation
Additional information, including disassembling and re-assembling the scooter for transport/storage is
presented in a subsequent section (see page 22).
Transferring Onto the Vehicle
Your scooter has been designed to make transferring on and off the vehicle as easy as possible.
WARNING!
Make sure key switch is either in the OFF position or the key is
removed before transferring ON or OFF the vehicle.
Use the following recommendations to assist you in making a more comfortable transfer.
1. The Scooter Dash lifts up and out of your way for maximum clearance.
WARNING!
DO NOT use the dash to support your weight during transfers. Dash
movement may cause you to fall.
2. The Seat can be swiveled and locked into one of eight convenient positions (every 45°). To rotate
the seat:
— Lift the locking lever located on the side of the seat.
— Rotate the seat to desired position.
— Release the locking lever and check that the seat locks into position.
3. Lift folding armrests up and out of your way for added room to transfer.
Once seated on the vehicle it is important that the rider check the following items before operating the
vehicle. Failure to do so could result in the rider falling off of the vehicle causing a serious injury.
1. The Seat is locked into the forward position.
2. The Scooter Dash is pulled down into riding position.
3. The Folding armrests are down and in the riding position.

Rascal R6 300 Scooter Owner’s Manual
Driving
Once seated on your Rascal scooter, driving is simple. Set Speed Dial to desired speed range. Use the
Engager Lever to move forward (squeeze right side) or reverse (squeeze left side) Steer in the desired
direction. Before driving, however, you should confirm the following recommendations are followed.
• Handlebar Assembly and dash are locked in position, facing the operator.
• Seat is locked in forward position.
• Green Status Lamp is not flashing
• Armrests are lowered into driving position.
• Key is in switch and in “On” position.
Braking System
Whenever the engager lever is moved out of the neutral position, the electromagnetic brake will
automatically release and your scooter will move. When the speed engager lever is released, it will
return to the neutral position and the scooter will decelerate with regenerative braking and come to a
complete stop. The parking brake will then engage preventing further movement of your scooter. If your
scooter ever moves in an unexpected manner, release the speed engager lever. Once the scooter has
come to a complete stop turn off the power.
Your unit is equipped with a controller that has a high pedal disable safety feature. This will prevent
unexpected acceleration of the scooter, if the speed engager lever is activated at the same time you
turn the key ON. To reset the controller, release the speed engager lever and turn the key OFF for 3-5
seconds and then turn it back ON.
Safety Feature: There is a time delay between the release of the engager lever and when the parking
brake automatically activates. This delay allows your vehicle to gradually slow down before the parking
brake activates so you will come to a smooth stop.
Speed Settings
The top forward/reverse speed of the vehicle is selected from the Dial-A-Speed knob on the dash.
Lower settings, 1, 2 (indicated by the turtle symbol) result in slower speeds. Higher settings 9-10
(indicated by the rabbit symbol) provide faster speeds.
When first operating your vehicle, select slower settings to operate the unit until you feel comfortable.
Freewheel Operation
The scooter features a “freewheel” mode to allow it to be pushed by hand (manual operation). To
activate manually, turn the key switch OFF and locate the brake release lever under the rear cover on
the right side. Push lever up to disengage the parking brake. Move lever down to engage the parking
brake. When your vehicle is in manual push mode, parking and regenerative brakes will not operate.
The Brake Release lever is shown in Illustration 11.
