Zero Turn 10 Scooter

Maintaining your mobility scooter is essential to ensure it remains not only a safe mobility aid, but also to increase the longevity of your scooter. A well-maintained mobility scooter will serve you reliably and efficiently, providing you with the independence you need. Here are some essential tips to keep your mobility scooter in top condition:

Regular Cleaning:

Keep your scooter clean and free from debris. Use a mild detergent and a soft cloth to clean the exterior regularly. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the scooter’s finish.


Tires are the foundation of your mobility scooter, providing stability and a smooth ride. Regularly inspect your tires for wear and tear. Ensure they are properly inflated according to the manufacturer’s specifications. If you notice any cracking or the tread depth is insufficient, it’s time to replace them. Proper tire maintenance can prevent unexpected breakdowns and ensure a safer ride.

Battery Life:

The battery is the heart of your scooter. To maintain its performance and longevity, charge the battery regularly, and avoid letting it fully discharge. During cold weather when scooter usage might decrease, it’s crucial to continue charging the battery regularly. Store the battery indoors at room temperature when not in use, as extreme temperatures can affect battery life.


Regularly check the brakes to ensure they are functioning correctly. Test the brake responsiveness and adjust them if necessary. Consider having your brakes professionally serviced at regular intervals. A Brant Arts technician can thoroughly inspect and maintain the braking system, ensuring it remains in optimal condition. Properly functioning brakes are vital for your safety while using the scooter.

Storage and Transportation:

When not in use, store your scooter in a dry and secure location. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for disassembly and storage if you plan to store or transport the scooter for an extended period. If you need to transport it, use appropriate ramps and equipment to prevent damage. We recommend trying this single fold ramp for easy and safe transportation.



Maintaining Warranty Coverage:

Follow the recommended maintenance schedule outlined in your scooter’s user manual to ensure warranty coverage. Use authorized service centers or technicians for any repairs or maintenance as unauthorized repairs or modifications can void your warranty. Familiarize yourself with the terms of your warranty, it is important to know what is covered and what isn’t, including any specific maintenance tasks required to keep the warranty valid. Keep records of maintenance and servicing to provide documentation if needed for warranty claims.
