Seems to be a tricky one to find - found the 2017 version (there's a 2013 too) but it's pretty sparse/useless as service manuals go...

Is that the same one I found? Doesn't even mention GB motors... 4.6Mb, 52 pages?

Is this the manual you found Irving... https://www.manualslib.com/download/132 ... x-Sp2.html

Yep, it doesn't mention GB motors anywhere.

Yes, that's the only one that was downloadable for free. There was another on a pay site (Scribd or manualzz, can't recall which) but i think it was same one (edit: manualzz actually is 208 pages and downloadable, but still no GB info). And Invacare.ie had a broken (404) link to one. Invacare.es has the same manual but dated 2018.

This is the 2019 Service Manual for the TDXSP2... https://www.invacare.co.uk/sites/uk/fil ... manual.pdf :thumbup:

No mention of GB motors which means Invacare must have a lot of issues that they can't resolve with the GB Setup.

Other than date, that appears to be pretty much the same as the earlier ones. Still only 52 pages.

The manuals for the US RWD H-frame models (Storm, Ranger-X, etc.) have a pretty decent amount of info on the GB stuff, and a lot of it will be the same, as they use the same motors, controllers, etc. Just different swingarms and mounting stuff on the frames...

With one massive difference though. We have the newer control systems, that were never used in the US. So more programmable, and more options. The motors themselves may be the same. But different tyre positions on the drum.

It may depend on the vintage... My understanding is that US and elsewhere used the same control systems up until the last generation, which wasn't allowed into the US... My GB chair had MKIV electronics, but I believe the later chairs had at least MKV and MKVI depending on age....
