ASSEMBLY

1.SECURELY ATTACH unit to the bed of a truck, trailer, or use the hanging brackets, so that the exhaust discharges into an enclosed container.

NOTE: This unit must be securely mounted to the bed of a truck or to a trailer before operating.

See page 14 for parts diagram to assemble

2.ATTACH hose to housing intake, using hose quick clamp (item 8) making sure to place the safety switch under the clamp (see interlock page 12. Then slide the hose onto the housing intake and place the shut off switch under the clamp. Make sure the shut off switch is pressed in or the vacuum will not start, and clamp the hose to the intake.

3.ASSEMBLE nozzle handle (item 11), to nozzle (item 10), using screws (item 60), fender washers (item 56), washers (item 57) and lock nuts (item 43).

4.ATTACH assembled nozzle to hose using hose clamp (item 9). Before tightening hose clamp, position nozzle handle upward when hose is stretched to prevent twisting load on hose assembly during operation.

5.ATTACH the hose boom (item 5) by sliding the boom through the ring on the top of housing and resting it in the cup on the top of the housing.

6.ASSEMBLE hose band (item 13) around hose and secure chain between flanges of the hose band using capscrew (item 52), washers (item 54), and lock nut (item 53). To adjust the hose boom height see page 11)

7.SECURELY ATTACH exhaust elbow (item 4) to the housing (see MOUNTING on page 10) with the hardware located on the exhaust chute.

8.INSTALL BATTERY (Electric Models Only) Due to the location of the battery it is recommended that only the specified battery be used on the DL1401SE and DL1801VE. This is due to the heat generated by the muffler and the location of the battery. Using the wrong size battery could result in premature failure, damage to unit or personal injury. The battery needs to be within the specification list on page 3. The U1 group or equivalent is recommended for the DL18VE (SEE PAGE 3 FOR BATTERY

SPECIFICATIONS)

9.(Electric Models Only) Attach the battery cables to the battery and secure it to the unit with the hold down strap.

MOUNTING

MOUNTING: Main unit

GENERAL: Unit must be securely mounted to a trailer, truck bed, hanging brackets, or other similar surface before use. Do not use this unit in a freestanding position. Unit is not stable until it has been secured in place.

Secure unit by bolting through the base of the unit and through the mounting surface using 3/8" dia. bolts, with washers and locking nuts (see fig. 1)

MOUNTING: Exhaust elbow

Note: this process is easier with two people, one to support the exhaust elbow and one to attach plates and hardware.

1)Remove the bolts (item 50), washers (item 51), and nuts (item 41) from the parts bag.

2)Place the elbow on top of the housing chute and line up with the holes in the elbow with the housing in the desired position you want the exhaust to go.

3)Secure the elbow to the housing with the hardware provided. Make sure the hardware is properly tightened.

DL12/13/14/18 Owner’s Manual

VACUUMING OPERATION

 

EXHAUST DIRECTION & DISTANCE: Exhaust direction and distance are controlled by

 

the rotation of the exhaust elbow. Typically debris is aimed to discharge to the rear of the

 

container. The direction of discharge is adjusted by rotating the exhaust elbow on the

 

housing and securing with the hardware provided.

 

NOTE: Elbow is heavy. Use caution when adjusting. Never stand directly under the elbow

 

while adjusting direction of exhaust.

 

Never direct exhaust into an area where bystanders may cross the path of the

 

debris.

 

INTAKE OPERATION: With machine running and fully assembled, move the nozzle in

 

sweeping motions over debris. Always allow air to flow into the nozzle along with the

 

debris. Do not completely block the nozzle when vacuuming, it will reduce performance,

 

and increase clogging (See figure 3).

Fig. 3

For removal of heavier debris, or debris that is stuck to the ground, rock nozzle forward to

 

concentrate suction power around the debris (See figure 4).

 

ADJUSTING HOSE BOOM

Properly adjusting the boom will prevent most hose clogs from occurring and will maximize vacuum performance by keeping the hose straight and perpendicular to the housing (see fig. 5). Height adjustments are made by raising or lowering one of the attachment links to a different area on the chain.

UNCLOGGING A CLOGGED HOSE

With engine running and unit secured to a trailer, truck bed, or other similar surface, fully stretch hose in a straight line to dislodge the clog. If the clog will not clear, turn unit off, and allow engine to come to a complete stop. Remove hose and manually clear hose clog. NOTE: The clogged debris may be sharp. Always wear durable gloves when removing clog.

UNCLOGGING A CLOGGED HOUSING OR EXHAUST ELBOW

Turn engine off and wait for impeller to come to a complete stop. Disconnect spark plug wires and battery cables. Remove the hose from the housing and determine where the clog is located. If possible clear the clog through the intake opening. It may require removal of the intake adaptor (item 16) to allow access to clear the housing. If clog is in the elbow, carefully remove the elbow. Remove elbow by removing the bolts and nuts on the elbow clamp so that the plates can be removed.

NOTE: Elbow is very heavy. Do not stand directly under elbow during removal.Danger, the clog may contain sharp materials. Wearing durable gloves, clear the clog. Reconnect spark plug wire.

HOSE CARE AND TIPS

To increase hose life, periodically rotate hose and reposition nozzle and coupler on front plate of unit. This increases hose life by keeping hose from wearing only on one side.

Keep hose as straight as possible and avoid sharp bends during operation for best pickup and to avoid clogs.

Never drag hose. Always remove and store hose before transporting unit. Store hose straight and flat to maintain flexibility for next use.

THE HOSE IS A REPLACEABLE WEAR ITEM.

HOSE STORAGE: Storing hose in a covered area, out of sunlight and heat will prolong hose life. Do not store hose where it could be stepped on or where other objects could crush or damage hose.

IMPELLER REMOVAL

1.

Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug wires from the engine.

 

2. Remove the hose from the unit.

 

3. Unattach the hose from boom assembly.

 

4.

Remove the intake housing assembly (item 16) by removing (6) locknuts (item 44). Be careful to

 

place intake assembly to the side without putting excess strain on safety switch wire harness

 

5. Remove impeller bolt (item 34), lock washer (item 35), and spacer (item 37) using 5/8" socket and

 

impact wrench (see fig. 6).

 

6. Once bolt is removed impeller should slide out freely. If the impeller doesn’t slide off freely use

 

penetrating oil and work the hub off using a pry bar. Do not use the pry bar on the impeller plate.

 

7. When impeller is free of the engine shaft, align impeller with the opening and pull it straight out of the

 

housing.

 

8. Using a new impeller bolt, washer, and lock washer, install new impeller in reverse order.

 

Note: Be sure that the key is in place on the engine shaft before installing impeller.

 

9. Tighten impeller bolt. Torque the impeller bolt to[33-38Ft. Lbs.(45-52N.m)]

 

10. Repeat steps 2 through 5 in reverse order.
