Part No. 1076155
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Stability - Recliner Models Only
ALWAYS make sure that the wheelchair is stable before using the recliner option.
Ensure the spreader bar is attached and secured before using the 9000XT Recliner. ALWAYS return the back to the upright position before lifting the wheelchair.
Lift Kit Models only ‐ Both spring lift mechanisms MUST be operational before using the recliner. DO NOT operate the recliner option if only one (1) of the spring lift mechanisms is operational.
Anti-Tippers
Anti‐tippers are specific to the different seat‐to‐floor angles and/or seat‐to‐floor heights. Refer to the charts in Installing/Adjusting Anti‐tippers on page 80 for correct usage and adjustment. If these requirements cannot be achieved, DO NOT use the wheelchair. Contact a qualified technician. If changing the seat‐to‐floor height with or without a change to seat‐to‐floor angle, the correct anti‐tippers MUST be used to maintain a 1½ to 2‐inch ground clearance. Seat‐to‐floor angle of 0° or 3°: If so equipped, anti‐tippers MUST be attached at all times. Inasmuch as the anti‐tippers are an option for 0° or 3° on this wheelchair (you may order with or without the anti‐tippers), Invacare strongly recommends ordering the anti‐tippers as a safeguard for the wheelchair user.
Seat‐to‐floor angle of 6°: If changing the seat‐to‐floor angle to 6°, anti‐tippers MUST be installed.
Operating Information
Invacare products are specifically designed and manufactured for use in conjunction with Invacare accessories. Accessories designed by other manufacturers have not been tested by Invacare and are not recommended for use with Invacare products.
Unless otherwise noted, all service and adjustment should be performed while the wheelchair is unoccupied.
When cleaning rear cane or hand grip areas use only a clean towel lightly dampened with cool water. Verify that grips are dry prior to use. Use of soap or ammonia based cleaning solutions will result in the hand grips sliding off the cane assembly. Failure to observe this warning may result in injury to the user or bystanders.
If the wheelchair is exposed to extreme temperature (above 100°F or below 32°F), high humidity and/or becomes wet, ensure prior to use that the handgrips do not twist on the handle. Otherwise, damage or injury may occur.
Avoid storing or using the wheelchair near open flame or combustible products. Serious injury or damage to property may result.
Part No. 1076155

4. If tires are pneumatic, recommended tire pressure is listed on the sidewall of the tire.
CAUTION
As with any vehicle, check the wheels and tires periodically for cracks and wear.
Replace if damaged.
5. The rear wheels, casters and tires should be checked periodically for cracks and wear, and should be replaced if damaged.
NOTE: Tire wear is excessive if:
• Pneumatic Tires ‐ there is missing tread or the tires are bald.
• Urethane Tires ‐ there are cuts, surface defects or the tires are loose on the rims.
• Rubber Tires ‐ 30% or more of the tire has worn away.
NOTE: Invacare recommends that tires and casters be replaced every five (5) years.
6. Periodically adjust wheel locks in correlation to tire wear. Refer to Adjusting Patient‐Operated Wheel Locks on page 83.
7. Periodically check handrims to ensure they are secured to the rear wheels. If loose, tighten them.
8. Periodically check caster wheel bearings to make sure they are clean and free from moisture. Use a Teflon® lubricant if necessary.
WARNING
When cleaning rear cane or hand grip areas use only a clean towel lightly dampened
with cool water. Verify that grips are dry prior to use. Use of soap or ammonia
based cleaning solutions will result in the hand grips sliding off the cane assembly.
Failure to observe this warning may result in injury to the user or bystanders.
9. Hand grips should be checked monthly for wear/looseness/deterioration. Clean if desired. Replace if looseness or deterioration is found.
10. Check upholstery for sagging, rips or tears.

WARNING
After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching
hardware is tightened securely. Otherwise, injury or damage may occur.
NOTE: Except where noted, the procedures in this section apply to non‐recliner models only. For recliner models, refer to Recliner on page 58.
Removing/Installing Rear Wheels
Quick-Release Axles
WARNING
NEVER use quick-release axles on the 9000 XT (models with offset axle option
only), 9000XDT or 9000XT recliner wheelchairs.
NOTE: For this procedure, refer to FIGURE 6.1.
NOTE: If replacing the same size rear wheel, note the mounting position on the wheelchair frame for proper reinstallation of the new rear wheel.
1. Push in the detent pin of the quick‐release axle (with wheel) and pull the axle out through the opening in the center of the rear wheel and axle spacer.
NOTE: Axle spacer is used only if wheelchair is equipped with conventional arms.
2. Push in the detent pin of the quick‐release axle again and pull the axle out of the rear wheel.
3. Repeat STEPS 1‐2 for the opposite rear wheel.
4. To reinstall the rear wheel onto the wheelchair, reverse STEPS 1‐3.
NOTE: Make sure axle spacer is between rear wheel and wheelchair frame if wheelchair is equipped with conventional arms.
WARNING
Make sure the detent pin and detent balls of the quick-release axle are fully released
before operating the wheelchair.
The detent balls MUST be protruding past the inside of the rear wheel axle bushing
for a positive lock (Detail "A").
Keep detent balls clean.
Invacare recommends inserting quick-release axles with the detent pin to the inside
of the wheelchair to prevent accidental release during contact activities.

WARNING
After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching
hardware is tightened securely. Otherwise injury or damage may occur.
NOTE: The procedures in this section apply to non‐recliner models only except where noted. For the 9000XT recliner, refer to Recliner on page 58.
Installing/Adjusting Anti-tippers
WARNING
Anti-tippers are specific to the different seat-to-floor angles and/or seat-to-floor
heights. Refer to the chart on page 81 for correct usage and adjustment. If these
requirements cannot be achieved, DO NOT use the wheelchair. Contact a qualified
technician. If changing the seat-to-floor height with or without a change to
seat-to-floor angle, the correct anti-tippers MUST be used to maintain a 1-1/2 to
2-inch ground clearance.
Seat-to-floor angle of 0° or 3°: If so equipped, anti-tippers MUST be attached at all
times. Inasmuch as the anti-tippers are an option for 0° or 3° on this wheelchair (you
may order with or without the anti-tippers), Invacare strongly recommends
ordering the anti-tippers as a safeguard for the wheelchair user.
Seat-to-floor angle of 6°: If changing the seat-to-floor angle to 6°, anti-tippers MUST
be ordered and installed.
Anti-tippers MUST be fully engaged and release buttons fully protruding out of
adjustment holes.
ALWAYS use anti-tippers. When outdoors on wet, soft ground or on gravel
surfaces, anti tippers may not provide the same level of protection against tipover.
Extra caution must be observed when traversing such surfaces.
Ensure both anti-tippers are adjusted to the same mounting hole.
Installing Anti-Tippers
NOTE: For this procedure, refer to FIGURE 8.1.
1. Remove plug button (not shown) from end of rear frame tubing and install anti‐rattles if not already installed.
2. Press the release buttons in and insert the anti‐tippers with the anti‐tipper wheels pointing toward the ground/floor into the rear frame tubing until the bottom release button locks in place.
