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.

PUT OIL IN ENGINE BEFORE STARTING

STARTING

ENGINE: See engine manufacturer’s instructions for type and amount of oil and gasoline used. Engine must be level when checking and filling oil and gasoline.

ENGINE SPEED: Controlled by throttle lever on the engine. Under normal conditions, operate at minimum throttle to accomplish your current cleaning task.

FUEL VALVE: Move fuel valve to "ON" position (when provided on engine).

CHOKE: Briggs-Locatedon engine and must be controlled manually.

Honda-Placeremote throttle in choke position

PRIMER: Push primer per engine instructions (B&S only).

THROTTLE: Move throttle to fast/choke position. Located on handle.

TRANSMISSION: Engaged by pulling the clutch bail towards handle.

IF YOUR UNIT FAILS TO START:

See Troubleshooting on page 12.

HANDLING & TRANSPORTING:

This unit requires two people to lift it. Lift holding the lower handle and front wheels. Secure the machine in place during transport. See page 3 for weight specifications

Never lift the machine while the engine is running.

STORAGE

Never store engine indoors or in enclosed poorly ventilated areas with fuel in tank, where fuel fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot light, as on a furnace, water heater, clothes dryer or other gas appliance.

If engine is to be unused for 30 days or more, prepare as follows:

Remove all gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of engine. Drain fuel outdoors, into an approved container, away from open flame. Be sure engine is cool. Do not smoke. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine runs out of gasoline.

OPERATION

VACUUMING OPERATION

VACUUM NOZZLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: is raised and lowered by pushing slightly downward on handle to reduce tension on the adjuster, and then pulling height adjust trigger on the handle (item 23) up at right rear of machine. Then select the desired height that fits the task.

FOR MAXIMUM PICKUP: Adjust nozzle close to debris, but without blocking airflow into the nozzle.NOTE: Never bury nozzle into debris.

CLEARING A CLOGGED NOZZLE & EXHAUST: Turn engine off and wait for impeller to stop completely and disconnect spark plug wire. Wearing durable gloves, remove clog.Danger, the clog may contain sharp materials. Reconnect spark plug wire.

DEBRIS BAG

Debris bags are normal replaceable wear items.

Note: Frequently empty debris to prevent bag overloading with more weight than you can lift.

An optional felt bag is available for use where debris will be vacuumed in dusty conditions (see Optional Accessories shown on page 1).

DO NOT place bag on or near hot surface, such as engine. Be sure engine has come to a complete stop before removing or emptying bag.

This vacuum is designed for picking up trash, organic material and other similar debris (see Safety Warnings page 4-5).

However, many vacuums are used where dust is mixed with trash. Your unit can intermittently vacuum in dusty areas. Dust is the greatest cause of lost vacuum performance. However, following these rules will help maintain your machine's ability to vacuum in dusty conditions:

Run machine at idle to quarter throttle.

The debris bag must be cleaned more frequently. A vacuum with a clean, pillow soft bag will have good pickup performance. One with a dirty, tight bag will have poor pickup performance. If dirty, empty debris and vigorously shake bag free of dust.

Pressure-washdebris bag if normal cleaning does not fully clean bag. Bag should be thoroughly dry before use.

NOTE: Having one or more spare debris bags is a good way to reduce down time while dirty bags are being cleaned.

DO NOT leave debris in bag while in storage.
