Assemble, Operate and Disassemble the EZ-GO Deluxe
When it comes to health, mobility, customer service, and options for portable power vehicles, there is no competition for Merit Health Products. The latest Merits EZ-GO is the latest example of the combination of technology and comfort. With a slight difference in design and specifications, both models possess a tight running radius and higher seat back for required mobility and durability. They are easily assembled & offer complete user-friendly options. If you are planning to go out, this lightweight power wheelchair would easily disassemble into three parts to fit into your family vehicle. It is what we call customer Independence.
How to Assemble the EZ-GO/EZ-GO Deluxe?
Step 1: As soon as you have unboxed all parts of power chairs, begin with setting the seat post at a suitable height on the rear section of the chair and lock it with the help of a detent pin.
Step 2: Place and attach front & rear sections of the chair and pull the manual freewheel lever to ensure they are tightened up.
Step 3: Place the battery box on the rear section and attach the foot set with the front section with the help of screws. Front and rear shrouds will also be assembled accordingly.
Step 4: Place the seat on the seat post carefully. Make sure that under the storage point where the seat post is to be inserted is properly open.
Step 5: Put the set of arm sets in the receivers and adjust the desired width by aligning the holes using detent pins and adjustment knobs.
Step 6: Choose the side to attach the joystick & controller, place joystick mount in the arm set and tighten the screw with an allen wrench. Also, connect the joystick & controller to the power module, use wire ties to tighten the harness into the right places.
Step 7: Make sure no wire ties are loose to scratch the user. Ensure the battery is fully charged before use. For charging use controller plug on the rear side of the power chair.
