STORING YOUR SCOOTER
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
1. Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
2. Disconnect the batteries from the scooter.
3. Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment.
4. Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
NOTE: If there is an increase in the operational noise level in the transaxle, the warranty does not
apply. An increase in operational noise level usually occurs due to abusive and excessive strain on the
scooter.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a frozen
battery. Charging a frozen battery may reselt in damage to the battery.
Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures, or stored
without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life. It is
recommended that you charge the scooter batteries periodically throughout periods of prolonged storage to ensure
proper performance.
You may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise it off of the ground during periods
of prolonged storage. This takes the weight off the tires and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the
areas of the tires contacting the ground.
DISPOSAL OF YOUR SCOOTER
Your scooter must be disposed of according to applicable local and national statutory regulations. Contact your
local waste disposal agency or authorized Pride Provider for information on proper disposal of packaging, metal
frame components, plastic components, electronics, and batteries.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
XI.
Your scooter requires a minimal amount of care and maintenance. If you do not feel confident in your ability to
perform the maintenance listed below, you may schedule inspection and maintenance at your authorized Pride
Provider. The following areas require periodic inspection and/or care and maintenance.
TIRE PRESSURE
! If equipped with pneumatic tires, always maintain a proper 30-35 psi tire pressure.
WHEEL REPLACEMENT
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires and you have a flat tire, you can have the tube replaced. If your
scooter is equipped with a solid tire insert, either the solid insert or the entire wheel must be replaced depending on
model. Contact your authorized Pride Provider for information regarding replacement wheels for your scooter.
WARNING! Wheels on your scooter should only be serviced/replaced by an authorized
Pride Provider or qualified technician.
WARNING! Completely deflate pneumatic tires before dismantling the rim or attempting
repair.
WARNING! When changing a tire, remove only the center lug nut, then remove the wheel.
If any further disassembly is required, deflate the tire completely or it may explode.
EXTERIOR SURFACES
Bumpers, tires, trim, and the tiller boot can benefit from an occasional application of a rubber or vinyl conditioner.
WARNING! Do not use a rubber or vinyl conditioner on the scooter’s vinyl seat or tire tread,
as they will become dangerously slippery.
CLEANING AND DISINFECTION
! Use a damp cloth and mild, non-abrasive cleanser to clean the plastic and metal parts of your scooter. Avoid
using products that may scratch the surface of your scooter.
! If necessary, clean your product with an approved disinfectant. Make sure the disinfectant is safe for use on
your product before application.
AND
MAINTENANCE
WIRING HARNESSES
! Regularly check all wiring connections.
! Regularly check all wiring insulation, including the charger power cord, for wear or damage.
! Have your authorized Pride Provider repair or replace any damaged connector, connection, or insulation that
you find before using your scooter again.
WARNING! Even though the scooter has passed the necessary testing requirements for
ingress of liquids, you should keep electrical connections away from sources of dampness,
including direct exposure to water or bodily fluids and incontinence. Check electrical
components frequently for signs of corrosion and replace as necessary.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 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 30-35 psi tire pressure in
pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure.
! Regularly inspect your scooter’s tires for signs of wear.
CARE
ABS PLASTIC SHROUDS
! The front tiller shroud, front shroud, and the rear shroud are formed from durable ABS plastic and are coated
with an advanced formula urethane paint.

It may take a few days for the temperature of your scooter’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or
ambient temperature.
How do I change a battery?
WARNING! Contact your authourized Pride Provider if you have any questions
regarding the batteries in your scooter.
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.
WARNING! Do not replace the batteries while the scooter is occupied.
WARNING! The batteries on your scooter should only be servcied or replaced
by an authorized Pride Provider or a qualified technician.
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead
and lead compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and
wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always use two batteries of the exact same type, chemistry and
amp-hour (Ah) capacity. Refer to the specifications table in this manual and in
the manual supplied with the battery charger for recommended type and
capacities.
1. Remove the seat and the rear shroud. See IX. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
2. Disconnect the battery strap.
3. Disconnect the 2 pin, black and white battery harness from its mating plug. See figure 15 in IX. “Assembly
and Disassembly.”
4. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery terminals.
5. Remove the old batteries.
6. Place a the new batteries into the battery wells.
7. Connect the red battery cable to the positive (+) battery terminal for each battery.
8. Connect the black battery cable to the negative (-) battery terminal for each battery.
9. Reconnect the 2 pin, black and white battery harness to its mating plugs.
10. Reconnect the battery strap.
11. Reinstall the rear shroud and seat.
Follow these steps to properly break in your scooter’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 scooter 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 scooter’s controls and have properly
broken in your scooter’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your scooter 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 scooter, you must contact the transportation provider in advance to determine their specific requirements.
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 scooter’s specific electrical
demands. Fresh 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.

WARNING! If your battery charger has not been tested and approved for outdoor use, then
do not expose it to adverse or extreme weather conditions. If the battery charger is exposed
to adverse or extreme weather conditions, then it must be allowed to adjust to the difference
in environmental conditions before use indoors. Refer to the manual supplied with the
battery charger for more information.
Follow these easy steps to charge your batteries safely:
1. Position your scooter close to a standard electrical outlet.
2. Remove the key from the key switch.
3. Make certain that the manual freewheel lever is in the drive (down) position.
4. Plug the charger power cord into the charger power cord receptacle.
5. Extend the charger power cord and plug it into the electrical outlet. It is recommended that you charge your
batteries for 8 to 14 hours.
6. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the charger power cord from the electrical outlet and then from the
charger power cord receptacle.
NOTE: There is a charger inhibit function on your scooter. The scooter will not run and the battery
condition meter will not operate while the batteries are charging.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does the charger work?
When your scooter’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 scooter’s batteries, but does not overcharge
them. We do not recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if my scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
! Ensure the red (+) and black (-) battery cables are connected properly to the battery terminals.
! Ensure both battery harnesses, extending from the batteries, are plugged into their mating harness leading to
the charger.
! Ensure both ends of the charger power cord are inserted fully.
Can I use a different charger?
Chargers are selected precisely for particular applications and are especially matched to the type, size, and chemical formulation of specific batteries. For the safest and most efficient charging of your scooter’s batteries, we
recommend use of the charger supplied as original equipment with your Pride product only. Any charging method
resulting in batteries being charged individually is especially prohibited.

How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your scooter’s batteries:
! All day scooter use on a daily basis.
! Infrequent or sporadic scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your scooter’s
batteries. We designed the onboard charger so that it will not overcharge your scooter’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 scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter will be
ready each morning . We recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
! 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 deeply discharging your scooter’s batteries.
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. Protect your scooter and batteries from extreme heat or cold. Batteries
that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures, 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 scooter’s batteries prior to daily use.
! Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire.
! Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible.
! Limit your baggage weight to essential items.
! Try to maintain an even speed while your scooter is in motion.
! Avoid stop-and-go driving.
What type and size of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deepcycle batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals are contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell
batteries to reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
NOTE: Sealed batteries are not serviceable. Do not remove the caps.

Manual Freewheel Lever
Whenever you need or want to push your scooter for short distances, you can put it in freewheel mode.
1. Remove the key from the key switch.
2. Pull up on the manual freewheel lever to disable the drive system and the brake system. You may now push
your scooter.
3. Push down on the manual freewheel lever to reengage the drive and the brake systems and take your scooter
out of freewheel mode.
WARNING! When your scooter 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 to the side of the scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on
a scooter to do this.
!"After you have finished pushing your scooter, always return it to the drive mode to lock
the brakes.
Your scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. They
are recharged by an on-board charging system.
! Charge your scooter’s batteries prior to using it for the first time.
! Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition meter on the tiller console indicates the approximate strength of your batteries using a color
code. From right to left, green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a draining charge, and red indicates that an
immediate recharge is necessary. See figure 7. To ensure the highest accuracy, the battery condition meter should
be checked while operating your scooter at full speed on a dry, level surface.
You can also check the charging status of the batteries by the ammeter, located at the rear of the scooter. The
charger power cord must be plugged into a standard electrical outlet in order to obtain a reading. When the
amperage reading is at or near zero amps, charging is complete. See figure 8.
NOTE: If the scooter is placed in freewheel mode (manual freewheel lever pulled up) while the key is
in the on position, the scooter will not run until the manual freewheel lever is pushed down and the
key is turned to the “off” position, then back to the “on” position.
Batteries (Not Shown)
The batteries store electrical energy that powers your scooter. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
Anti-tip Wheels

INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
Exposure of your scooter to inclement weather conditions should be avoided whenever possible. If suddenly
caught up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your scooter, proceed to shelter at the earliest
opportunity. Thoroughly dry your scooter before storing, charging, or operating your scooter.
PROHIBITED! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions and on icy/slippery surfaces
may have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your scooter in a
dry and clean condition.
WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of
upholstered and non-upholstered items on the scooter, possibly resulting in skin irritation.
Exercise caution when using your scooter in extremely hot or cold conditions or when
exposing your scooter to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pulled up, allows the scooter to be pushed. For
more information about how to place your scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see V. “Your Scooter.”
WARNING! When your scooter 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 beside the scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on a
scooter to do this.
! After you have finished pushing your scooter, always return it to the drive
mode to lock the brakes.
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 scooter and the door will reopen.
! Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or scooter accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
NOTE: If your scooter’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 scooter in small
spaces, and avoid areas that might pose a problem.
LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be traveling with your scooter, 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.
WARNING! Never sit on your scooter when it is being used in connection with
any type of lift/elevation product. Your scooter was not designed with such use
in mind and any damage or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility
of Pride.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
An added feature built into the scooter is “push-too-fast” protection which safeguards the scooter against gaining
excessive speed while in freewheel mode.
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead
and lead compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and
wash hands after handling.
“Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists:
! If the key is switched “off” while in freewheel mode, the scooter’s controller activates regenerative braking
when the scooter is pushed faster than a maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed. In this case, the
controller is acting as a speed governor.
! If the key is switched “on” while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable resistance at any speed.
This prevents the scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently
be released while driving the scooter.
WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are
unable to lift that much weight, be sure to get help. Use proper lifting techniques
and avoid lifting beyond your capacity.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen
battery.
WARNING! Connect the battery harnesses in the proper manner. RED (+) cables
must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK (-) cables
must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. REPLACE cables
immediately if damaged. Protective caps must be installed over all battery
terminals.
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
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.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators.
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 scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your scooter gently and slowly
backwards to pull the door open.

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 scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the
powered scooter may "rollback" approximately 1 foot before the brake engages. If the throttle control
lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered scooter may "rollback" approximately 3 feet
before the brake engages.
SAFETY
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter 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 scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and
gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
! Reduce your scooter’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.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public streets and roadways. Be aware
that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter. 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.).
Figure 2. Normal Driving Position
Figure 2A. Increased Stability Driving Position
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is
inordinately high.
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 scooter from tipping.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed backward down any step, curb, or
other obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip.
WARNING! Be sure your scooter 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 2 in.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable center of
gravity. When using your scooter at higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly
reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. Always exercise common sense when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
! Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the centre/
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.

When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter 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 scooter 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.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
! 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.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a
tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride Provider for assistance.
WARNING! Do not drive your scooter 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.
TIRE INFLATION
If your scooter 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
scooter.
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 scooter in freewheel
mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 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 30-35 psi tire pressure
in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter 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.
WARNING! When changing a tire, remove only the center lug nut, then remove the wheel.
If any further disassembly is required, deflate the tire completely or it may explode.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity of your scooter. Exceeding the
weight capacity voids the warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or
property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Even though your scooter is capable of climbing slopes greater than those
illustrated in figures 1 and 1A, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline
guidelines or any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause
instability in your scooter.
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 scooters. Figures 1 and 1A illustrate your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under
various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the scooter’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 scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is
affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your scooter setup.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your scooter
may affect the center of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.

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 scooter.
! Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
! Take wide swings with your scooter around any tight corners. If you do that, the scooter’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 scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a
safely controlled descent.
! Avoid sudden stops and starts.
