To maintain safe operation of the machine, it's very important that the brake works properly. Check the brake often to see if it will need adjustment. Make sure the brake lever stops halfway when being pulled fully. When the brake lever can be pulled to reach the handle, it needs adjustment.

  1. Make sure the wheelbarrow is completely shut down with battery and safety key removed.
  2. Remove bucket, and then tilt the carrier frame.
  3. Pull the brake lever to release the lock button of the brake lever.
  4. Loosen the adjusting sleeve and fixing nut by turning them counterclockwise.
  5. Tighten the fixing nut only by turning it clockwise.
  6. Loosen the adjusting sleeve located near the terrain wheel by turning it counterclockwise.
  7. Test the brake by pulling it. The brake should stop halfway while fully pulled. If it does, follow step 11. If it doesn't, follow steps 8-10.
  8. Loosen the fixing nut close to the hand brake by turning it counterclockwise.
  9. Tighten the fixing nut and the adjusting sleeve by turning them clockwise.
  10. Tighten the adjusting sleeve near the middle wheel by turning it clockwise.
  11. . Fold back the carrier frame, and then reattach the bucket.
