ASSEMBLY

1.SECURELY ATTACH unit to the bed of a truck or to a trailer, 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.

2.ATTACH hose to housing intake, using hose clamp (item 22) making sure to place the safety switch under the clamp. Then place the clamp (item 22) over around the end of the hose to be attached to housing. 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 45), to nozzle (item 25), using screw (item 51), eye bolt (item 31), washers (item 66), washers (item 68) and lock nuts (item 60).

4.ATTACH assembled nozzle to hose using hose clamp (item 26). 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 9) by sliding the boom through the rings on the top of housing.

6.ASSEMBLE hose band (item 29) around hose and secure chain between flanges of the hose band using capscrew (item 63) and lock nut (item 59) Repeat same steps on the other chain. (See ADJUSTING HOSE BOOM on page 11).

7.SECURELY ATTACH exhaust elbow (item 21) capturing both flanges inside the clamp, then firmly tighten the clamp, securing the elbow to the housing (see MOUNTING on page 10).

8.INSTALL a standard 12 volt lawn and garden battery “U1” series (not included) with at least 240 cold cranking amps and a 40 amp hour rating by using battery bracket DL (item no. 70, hold down rods (item 71), washers (item 65), and lock nuts (item 59).

9.ATTACH red battery cable to + terminal and black battery cable to - terminal.

OPERATION

Like all mechanical tools, reasonable care must be used when operating machine.

Inspect machine work area and machine before operating. Make sure that all operators of this equipment are trained in general machine use and safety.

MOUNTING: Main unit

Typical on

both sides

 

 

GENERAL: Unit must be securely mounted to a trailer, truck bed, 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 loose hardware from the clamp assembly so that there are 4 separate pieces (two top plates and two bottom plates).

2)Apply good quality grease to the top and bottom of the toothed plate of the exhaust elbow (791114). Also grease top surface of housing and bottom of clamp plates where the gear will rotate.

3)Place the exhaust elbow on the chute with the teeth of the flange against the worm gear and the exhaust holes aligning.

4)Place the two bottom plates on the opposite edges beside the elbow teeth aligning the holes.

5)Place the top plates on top of the lower plates aligning the holes.

6)Secure the assembly with a plate half on top of the elbow flange and a plate half on bottom of the housing flange using 6, 1" carriage bolts and 6 lock nuts (removed hardware in step 1).
