Thread: power add-on for manual chair

    I see they cambered the wheels a bit since the originals. Looking forward to your impressions Mac. I sure like mine, bigtime

    I would take a close look and make sure that the "camber" and front caster rubbing are not the result of rough handling during shipping knocking things ou of alignment or breaking something, just in case.

    Congratulations Mac85. I hope you get the anti-tip wheel sorted out.

    We have a ZX-1 that is making it's journey over now. I'm hoping you can help us out. We need to either buy a new charger for 230 volt or hopefully just a European power plug. I've looked through the ZX-1 OPERATOR’S MANUAL, and don't see the exact brand and model # of the charger. Would you mind taking a look at your charger and letting me know the brand and model #?

    Many thanks. I don't want it to get here and have to wait to sort it out before we can use it after waiting this long .

    Sure. On the photo, it looks like the caster fork axle seems to be not fairly vertical… Something to check there ?

    UPS Guy thought process: This thing is heavy, but the dolly is way at the back of the loading dock. What to do, what to do... Wait, I've got it! I'll just roll the box onto the truck. Brilliant problem solving by me once again!

    Thanks Pat. It looks like we just need a standard European AC plug like those used on a lot of PC equipment. I've got quite a few floating around.

    I'm just guessing/eliminating possibilities.
