16 OPERATION

INTENDED USE: This machine is designed for vacuuming leaves, grass clippings and other types of organic litter.

Debris mixed with cans, bottles and small amounts of sand can be vacuumed; however, it is not this machine's primary purpose. Vacuuming cans, bottles and sand will affect the longevity of your machine.

Do not operate if excessive vibration occurs. If excessive vibration occurs, shut engine off immediately and check for damaged or worn impeller, loose impeller bolt, loose impeller key, loose engine or lodged foreign objects. Note: See parts list for proper impeller bolt torque specifications. (See trouble shooting section on page 12).

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.

16.1 STARTING

SECURE LOADER TO TAILGATE OR MOUNTING:

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 frame (16HP Twin on 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).

INTAKE HOSE: Must be attached to front plate to start engine.

CHOKE: Located on engine near engine throttle panel.

STOP SWITCH: Move to on position (when provided).

THROTTLE: Move remote throttle control to fast position. Pull starting rope to start engine.

IF YOUR UNIT FAILS TO START:

See Troubleshooting on page 12.

16.2 VACUUMING OPERATION

EXHAUST FLAPPER: Discharging into enclosed container, position exhaust flapper to desired opening and secure adjustment knob before starting engine. NOTE: An enclosed container must capture all debris delivered into it preventing any debris from blowing back onto unit's engine (see page 1 optional accessories).

NOZZLE: With machine running and fully assembled, move nozzle in sweeping motions over debris. For maximum pickup, move nozzle close to debris, but without blocking air flow into the nozzle (see figure 1).NOTE: Never bury nozzle into debris.

16.6 HOSE OPERATION TIPS

THE HOSE IS A REPLACEABLE WEAR ITEM.

FOR BEST HOSE OPERATION RESULTS, FOLLOW THESE RECOMMENDATIONS.

Keep hose as straight as possible during operation for best pick-upand to avoid clogs.

Avoid sharp bends in hose which will reduce efficiency and may promote clogs.

NEVER DRAG HOSE. Always remove and store hose before transporting unit.

fig. 1

ADJUSTING HOSE BOOM:

Properly adjusting the boom will prevent most hose clogs from occurring and will give optimum vacuum performance by keeping hose straight next to housing (see fig. 2).

16 OPERATIONcontinued

16.6HOSE OPERATION TIPS continued

UNCLOGGING A CLOGGED HOSE:

With engine running and unit secured to tailgate, 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.

UNCLOGGING A CLOGGED HOUSING OR EXHAUST ELBOW:

Turn engine off and wait for impeller to come to a complete stop. Disconnect spark plug wire. Danger, the clog may contain sharp materials. Wearing durable gloves, clear the clog. Reconnect spark plug wire.

HOSE LIFE:

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.

16OPERATION continued

16.4HANDLING & TRANSPORTING:

ALWAYS REMOVE LOADER FROM TAILGATE OR MOUNTING BEFORE TRANSPORTING OR OPENING TAILGATE.

Using two people to lift machine is recommended. Lift holding the rear handle and front of frame. Secure in place during transport.

HOSE: DO NOT drag the hose with vehicle.

16.5STORAGE

Turn fuel supply off when unit is not in use.

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:

Be sure engine is cool. Do not smoke. 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. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine runs out of gasoline.

NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such asSta-Bil)is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always follow mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 min. after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach the carburetor.

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.
