Transportation & handling with gitaplus


Occasionally you may need to move your gitaplus around a difficult obstacle, across the garage, or into a tight parking place. In order to do so, always place gitaplus in Park so that you can freely push and pull gitaplus without the motors being engaged. (In Follow mode gitaplus’s motors will be active and will resist your efforts.) Remember that gitaplus won’t self-balance while in Park mode, so you have to do the balancing yourself.



gitaplus weighs approximately 50 pounds (without items in the bin). It can be lifted and carried by two people to maneuver curbs and stairs. First power off gitaplus, then use the hand holds inside gitaplus’s cargo bin to lift it; if you do not, you run the risk of injuring yourself and damaging your gitaplus.

WARNING: Do not lift gitamini by the side flaps that cover its wheels or from the wheel wells; if you do so, you run the risk of injuring yourself and of seriously damaging your gitamini. Damage caused by improper lifting is not covered by your warranty, so please use proper lifting procedures.


To transport gitaplus in a motor vehicle, first confirm that you have powered gitaplus off. Then employ the lifting procedure described above. Once properly positioned in a seat or your vehicle’s trunk or cargo bay, secure gitaplus firmly in place. If you do not properly secure gita you run the risk of damaging the robot as well as your motor vehicle. 

Note: Damage caused by the failure to secure gitaplus is not covered by your warranty.
