FORCE BLOWER PUSH Owner’s Manual

BLOWING OPERATION

Your Billy Goat Force blower is equipped with an air director cone and the patented Aim-N-ShootTM control lever to allow the operator to direct the air stream up or down as required to assist in moving debris. This feature is extremely useful when debris has piled up to the point that it cannot be blown any farther. The air stream can be directed upward to blow the top of the debris pile over and allow the operator to continue moving more debris farther.

ADJUSTING AIR DIRECTOR

To adjust air direction, squeeze Aim-N-ShootTM control lever. When you want to blow debris at the same angle for an extended period, choose a suitable position and use the finger controlled push button lock to lock the cone in position. For operations that do not require the use of theAim-N-ShootTM feature the manual adjustment knob, pictured below, can

be used to permanently lock the cone into position. NOTE: be sure to release the knob when returning to using the Aim-N-ShootTM.

DO NOT position director cone to where it will blow debris towards people, vehicles or other objects in vicinity. Flying debris may damage, harm, or cause injury to people or objects in air flow range.

Manual Adjustment knob

FRONT DIVERTER POSITIONING (F9 and F13 models only)

The removable front diverter adapter can be slipped inside the cone to direct the air stream forward. First turn off engine, and then simply collapse the fold in the larger opening of the diverter and slide inside the cone and allow it to expand. Then position to the desired angle by rotating the diverter. This option is extremely useful for cleaning out long cracks in pavement or for cleaning under bushes, building overhangs or along curbs.

WARNING: Unit will be more difficult to control due to the air exiting the unit. Keep hands on the unit at all times when using the front diverter. Please note that theAim-N-ShootTM feature will not function when the Front Diverter is installed.
