ASSEMBLY

1.Follow the steps in figures A and B, then securely tighten all hardware shown.2.Connect spark plug wire.

Figure A

Figure B

The hardware for attaching the upper handle to the lower is in the parts bag. Install upper handle (item 30), to preassembled lower handle (item 28) by sliding the upper over and down the outside of the lower handle. Using bolt (items #36 and 123), washers (item #10) & lock nut (item #11) to install upper handle to lower handle. Note: The Pigtail bolt should go on the side that the pull start is on and the open end should be facing down. Finish installing the other side of the upper handle assembly using screw and lock nut provided.

The throttle control will be attached to the throttle arm on the engine and wrapped around the engine for shipping. Unwrap and secure throttle control (item #31) to upper handle with screws (item #39). Screws will already be mounted in handle, simply remove and use to mount the throttle control. Secure the throttle cable and clutch cable with two Ty-wraps.TheAim-and-ShootTM is not attached, you will need to unroll the cable and attach the ball end to the lever and seat the cable end into the hole on the saddle clamp, with the cable running through the slot. The Clutch cable will also be wrapped up under the machine. Route the cable under the axle and attach it by removing the hitch pin and clevis pin and attaching it to the clutch control lever. After it is attached pull on the cable and slide it into the hole on the bracket so that it clicks into place. To keep the cable from being damaged use threety-wraps(item 74) to secure it to the handle as shown making sure that the cable is not rubbing against the tire.Note:the cable should be seated properly in the saddle and should follow the contours of the handle.

OPERATION

DRIVE LEVER:

To engage the clutch for forward motion, simply hold down the clutch lever with your left hand while the engine is running,

this will cause the drive to engage and the machine will proceed to move forward. Caution: It is not recommended to “feather” the drive. The drive lever should be either fully engaged or fully disengaged. Failure to do so can cause premature failure of the cone clutch in the transmission. This type of failure will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

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. CAUTION: Be sure to release the knob when returning to using theAim-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 and 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

IMPELLER REMOVAL

1.Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.

2.Remove housing front cover, by removing (11) bolts and nuts, items #13 & #14, around outside of front cover.

3.Remove impeller bolt (item #35), lock washer (item #71) and washer (item #34).

4.DO NOT pry on impeller. Pull on center hub area only of impeller. Using a penetrating oil can help loosen a stuck impeller.

5.Reinstall new impeller in reverse order of removal.

6.Tighten impeller bolt. Torque impeller bolt (see parts list on page 15 for proper impeller bolt torque specifications).

TIRE AIR PRESSURE

Check at regular intervals and maintain.

Front Tires - 24 Psi (165 kPa).

Rear Tires - 20 Psi (137 kPa).

BELT TENSION ADJUSTMENT

DO NOT ADJUST WHILE THE MACHINE IS RUNNING!

1.Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.

2.Loosen the nut (item 92) on the Idler pulley (item 93) but do not remove it. This should allow the pulley to slide left or right. Once the pulley is at the proper distance to apply tension to the belt tighten the nut. Note: Do not place too much tension on the belt, as it will cause premature failure.

3.Reattach the spark plug.

BELT REPLACEMENT

1. Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug. 2.Follow the Impeller removal steps (2-5on page 12).

3.Remove the four bolts (item 8) holding the back plate (item 4) to the back housing (item 6).

4.Loosen the nut on the idler pulley and slide it to the right to relieve tension on the belt.

5.Slip the belt (item 86) off the engine pulley and the transmission.

6 Replace the belt with a new one and slide the Idler pulley to put proper tension on the belt. Note: Do not place too much tension on the belt, as it will cause premature failure.

7. Reassemble the machine in reverse order. Note: You will need to replace the Impeller bolt and torque to the proper specifications see page 16,DO NOT use the old one.

8. Reconnect spark plug wire.

DRIVE CHAIN REPLACEMENT

1.Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.

2.Place a block of wood, or another object that will support and steady the unit under the axle on the side of the machine you will be working on.

3.Remove the two screws (item 103) holding the chain guard (item 104) and then remove the chain guard.

4.Loosen the two nuts (item 98) holding the bearing (item 97).

5.Remove the retaining ring holding the wheel on and then slide the wheel off.

6.Replace the chain (item 105). Remove the old chain by walking it off the sprockets.

7.Position the bearing so that it applies the proper tension to the chain and tighten the nuts holding the bearing Note: DO NOT over tighten the chain, as this will cause premature failure. Likewise if the chain is too loose it will come off when the drive is engaged.

8.Reassemble the machine using steps 1-4in reverse order.

Loosen these nuts

CLUTCH CABLE ADJUSTMENT

1.With the machine off, loosen the two nuts on the end of the clutch cable (item 111) going in to the transmission.

2.By moving the position up or down on the threads it will change the tension on the clutch lever (item 113). Note: Do not position it too high on the threads as this could cause the drive not to engage. Likewise, if it is placed too low the drive may stay permanently engaged. The optimum setting is to remove any slack in the clutch cable when disengaged. The travel of the clutch control will apply the correct spring force on the cone clutch. Once the desired position is in place tighten the nuts securely.

3.Start the machine and check the operation. If the drive cable is not engaging properly, shut the machine off and reposition the nuts on the cable to tighten the drive cable.
