Operation & Care Instructions
Save For Future Reference
45-10 Gallon Dry HEPA Filter Poly Vacuum
This vacuum cleaner is a high quality, precision made product. All parts used in
the manufacturing of this vacuum cleaner have passed rigid quality control standards prior to assembly and an “each unit” final inspection prior to packaging to
assure proper assembly. This vacuum cleaner was protectively packed to prevent possible damage in transit. Should damage occur, please notify the
transporting carrier immediately for loss and/or claim.
ABOUT THE MACHINE
TO CONNECT THE HOSE
Simply push the swivel hose cuff into the tank inlet until the lock
feature engages. Press the button to remove the hose assembly.
The wand and/or tools are attached to the opposite (non-swivel)
end of the hose.
DRY OPERATION
The cloth filter located inside the can provides highly efficient separation of dust and dirt particles from the incoming air stream.
CAUTION
Never operate the vacuum cleaner unless the HEPA and never
clog filter is in good condition and properly installed.
The use of a disposable paper bag is strongly recommended for
picking up very fine dry materials. The paper bag not only makes
dirt disposal clean and convenient, but also provides an additional
layer of filtration. CLEAN CLOTH FILTER AFTER EACH USE!
DRY FILTER CLEANING
Remove the filter from the vacuum and clean by brushing the
Never-Clog bag to remove direct accumulation from outer surface.
Do not attempt to clean the HEPA filter.
MOTORHEAD
When removing the motorhead, care in handling is essential.
Dropping, banging or other abuse may result in a poor vacuum seal
and loss in suction power.
STORAGE
Store in a dry location indoors. Wrap the cord carefully around the
vacuum head to avoid accidental damage. Clean the tank, filter,
hose and tools prior to storage.
CAUTION
Never lubricate the vacuum cleaner motor. The motor bearings are permanently sealed. Introduction of lubricant into
the motor may cause premature failure.
NEVER USE THIS VACUUM CLEANER TO PICK UP COMBUS11BLE OR
EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS SUCH AS GASOUNE OR KEROSENE, ETC.
HAZARDOUS MATERIAL PICKUP & CLEAN-UP
FOR DRY OPERATION:
With the HEPA Filter Assembly in place, the motor head securely
clamped, and the hose adapter connected to the inlet, plug the
power cable into the proper outlet. Select the appropriate hose,
wand and/or tool and connect to the hose adapter. The vacuum
cleaner is ready for dry use.
DISPOSABLE BAG CHANGING:
Over filling the bag will result in loss of vacuum efficiency. The recommended bag replacement procedure is as follows:
1. Remove vacuum head and HEPA filter.
2. Tape a 6-mil poly bag over the canister so that the canister is
completely enclosed.
3. Using the poly bag as a glove, disengage the paper bag from the
vacuum inlet stem inside the canister.
4. Invert the canister so that the paper bag tails into the poly bag.
Seal the poly bag and dispose as prescribed by law.
5. Attach a new paper bag to the vacuum inlet securely and fold
the top of the bag down so it does not interfere with the HERA
filter.
6. Replace the HEPA filter and motor head.
7. Thoroughly vacuum the work area to recover any asbestos dust
which may have been dropped.
Dacron "Never Clog"
Filter Bag: H.E.P.A. filter equipped vacuums are sup-plied with a white
"Never Clog" filter bag surrounding the H.E.P.A. filter barrel. The bag
should be changed fre-quently and can be washed in laundry detergent and warm water.
Warning
A used filter is contaminated and must be disposed of in
accordance with local and federal E.P.A. regulations.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having equipment grounding conductor and grounding
plug. The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can
result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician
or service person if you are in doubt as to weather the outlet is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it will not fit
the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120- Volt circuit, and has a
grounded plug that looks like the plug illustrated in sketch A above.
A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle
as shown in sketch B if a properly grounded receptacle is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet (sketch A) can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green colored ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter
must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be
held in place by a metal screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted
by the Canadian Electrical Code.
EXTENSION CORDS:
Vacuums that have 3 wire cords requiring grounding must only be
used with extension cords that have 3-prong grounding type plugs
and 3-pole receptacles.
To determine the minimum wire size required, refer to the chart
below:
