How to Operate your Jazzy Zero Turn

Learn How to Operate your Jazzy Zero Turn

The fact that you purchased a Jazzy Zero Turn says a lot about how much you want a quality scooter. The Jazzy Zero Turn is the embodiment of comfort. We are not only satisfied with you buying our comfortable, high-quality scooter, but we also want to ensure that you are operating it correctly and safely.

Here are some things to consider before getting onto your device:

  1. Have you fully charged the batteries?
  2. Is the manual freewheel lever in the drive (rearward) position? (See Figure 1) Never leave the manual freewheel lever in the forward position unless you are manually pushing your unit.
  1. Ensure the tiller lock knob is in the unlocked position. (See Figure 2)
  1. Ensure the air temperature is between -13ºF/-25ºC to 122ºF/50ºC.

How to get onto your scooter safely and correctly

  1. Make certain that the key is removed from the key switch.

Note: Never attempt to get onto or off your vehicle without first removing the key from the key switch. This will prevent the unit from moving if accidental throttle control lever contact is made.

  1. Stand to the side of your unit.
  2. Disengage the seat rotation lever and rotate the seat until it is facing you.
  1. Make certain that the seat is secured into position.
  2. Position yourself comfortably and securely in the seat.
  3. Disengage the seat rotation lever and rotate the seat until you are facing forward. (See Figure 3)
  4. Make certain that the seat is secured into position.
  5. Make certain that your feet are safely on the floorboard.

There are some things you must be sure are appropriately adjusted for you before you get going. Here are some things to check before you hit the road:

  • Is the seat at the proper height?
  • Is the seat secured into place?
  • Is the tiller at a comfortable setting and secured into place?
  • Is the key fully inserted into the key switch and turned clockwise to the “on” position?
  • Does the horn work properly?
  • Is your proposed path clear of people, pets, and obstacles?
  • Have you planned your route to avoid adverse terrain and as many inclines as possible?

OPERATING YOUR TRAVEL SCOOTER

As you seek to safely operate your device, you must bear in mind that there are some things that can adversely affect steering and stability while operating your vehicle. Some of these are:

  • Holding onto or attaching a leash to walk your pet.
  • Carrying passengers (including pets).
  • Hanging any article from the tiller.
  • Towing or being pushed by another motorized vehicle.

It is of utmost importance that you always keep both hands on the tiller and your feet on the floorboard while operating your device. This driving position gives you the most control over your vehicle.

With these safety tips in mind, you are ready to go.

 

Here’s how to get your Jazzy Zero Turn going:

  • Set the speed adjustment dial to your desired speed. 
  • Press your thumb against the appropriate side of the throttle control lever. 
  • The electromechanical disc park brake automatically disengages, and the unit accelerates smoothly to the speed you preselected with the speed adjustment dial.
  • Pull on the left handgrip to steer to the left.
  • Pull on the right handgrip to steer to the right.
  • Move the tiller to the center position to drive straight ahead.
  • To stop, slowly release the throttle control lever. The electronic brakes will automatically engage when you come to a stop.
  • If equipped with zero turn technology, ensure your travel scooter is pivoting properly in both directions by observing the rear wheel on the side of the scooter you are turning to.

Please note that your reverse speed is slower than that of the forward speed you preset with the speed adjustment dial.

How to safely get off of your travel scooter

  1. Bring your device to a complete stop.
  2. Remove the key from the key switch.

Never attempt to get onto or off of your unit without first removing the key from the key switch. This will prevent the vehicle from moving if accidental throttle control lever contact is made.

  1. Disengage the seat rotation lever and rotate the seat until you are facing towards the side.
  2. Make certain that the seat is secured into position.
  3. Carefully and safely get out of the seat and stand to the side.
  4. You can leave the seat facing to the side to facilitate boarding next time.

Here’s how the power down timer feature works

Your device is equipped with an energy saving automatic power down timer feature designed to preserve your Travel Scooter’s battery life. If you mistakenly leave the key in the key switch and in the “on” position but do not use your device for approximately 20 minutes, the controller shuts down automatically.

If the power down timer feature takes effect, perform the following steps to resume normal operation.

  1. Remove the key from the key switch.
  2. Reinsert the key and power up your unit.
