Keeping the edge of deck adapter as close as possible to the offset in the adapter bracket, see if the slot in the adapter bracket can be aligned with one or two of the deflector holes in your mower deck's discharge opening. If the bracket can not be located correctly using existing holes, it will be necessary to drill one or two 5/16" diameter holes in the deck. See figure 31. With deck adapter positioned correctly over the discharge opening, use the adapter bracket as a template and drill three 9/32" diameter holes in the top of the deck adapter. See figure 33. Bolt deck adapter to bracket using three 1/4" x 3/4" bolts, nylon washers, 1/4" flat washers and 1/4" hex lock nuts. Nyk)n washers should be against the inside of the ddck adapter. See figure 33.

Service the engine with oil and gas as instructed in the separate engine manual. Inspect the Vac System to make sure all covers (rear door, hardtop boot, elbow, hose adapter, hose and deck adapter are properly attached. Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs). • • HOW • TO STOP YOUR CHIPPER VAC • To stop engine, move the throttle control lever to the OFF position. Disconnect spark plug wire from plug to prevent accidental starting while equipment is unattended or is being worked on. • Inspect the Chipper Vac to make sure all covers (rear door, hard top boot, elbow, chipper chute with tamper plug, hose adapter (nozzle), hose and deck adapter are properly attached. Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs). Check oil and gas in Chipper Vac engine. Begin operation at low speed, adjusting forward speed to match grass height and/or moisture condition to prevent clogging. Do not attempt to vacuum up any material other than vegetation found in a normal yard, such as light branches, leaves, twigs, etc. • • • with the engine running, or while the engine WARNING: Never fill fuel tank indoors, or is hot. Do not smoke while filling tank. & CAUTION: areas are hot!r_e muffler and adjacent HOW TO START YOUR CHIPPER • • • • MAC MAC CAUTION: Vehicle braking and stability may be affected with the addition of an accessory or an attachment. Be aware of changing conditions on slopes, & • CHIPPER WARNING: Should your Chipper Vac become clogged, shut off tractor and Chipper Vac engines. Before attempting to unclog, remove wire from spark plug to prevent accidental starting. To empty cart, shut off tractor engine and set brake. Shut off Chipper Vac engine. Remove rear door from cart. Release latch lock lever on tongue and tip cart back. See figure 36. sure that no one is near the cart before CAUTION: To avoid possible injury, be releasing the latch lock lever. engine without Never all covers WARNING: start being or runproperly the attached to the blower housing and cart. 'T" • • • • • • • • Check oil and gas in Chipper Vac engine. Attach spark plug wire to spark plug. Move choke lever on engine to CHOKE position. (A warm engine may not require choking.) Move throttle control lever on engine to FAST position. Grasp starter handle and pull rope out slowly until engine reaches start of compression cycle (rope will pull slightly harder at this point). Let the rope rewind slowly. Pull rope with a rapid, continuous, full arm stroke. Keep a firm grip on starter handle. Let rope rewind slowly. Do not let starter handle snap back against starter. Repeat instructions in two preceding paragraphs until engine fires. When engine starts, move choke control gradually to RUN position. • • Lift rear of hard top and secure it in the upper raised position with right and left prop rods. Using a rake or suitable tool, pull grass clippings and/ or leaves out of cart. After cart is emptied, close hard top, tip cart forward and secure it to the tongue. Reattach rear door and hardtop boot. FIGURE 36 2O USING • • • • THE CHIPPER CHUTE Material such as stalks or heavy branches up to 3" in diameter may be fed into the chipper chute as shown in figure 37. Be sure to wear eye protection and gloves when feeding material into the chipper chute. Use the tamper plug, not your hands, to force material down through the chipper chute. For best performance, it is important to keep the chipper blades sharp. If the composition of the material being discharged changes (becomes stringy, etc.) or if the rate of discharge slows down considerably, it is likely that the chipper blades are dull and need to be sharpened or replaced. Refer to the Service and Adjustments section, on page 23. & WARNING: Do not attempt to feed any material larger than 3" in diameter into the chipper chute. Personal injury or damage to the machine could result. & DANGER: Keep hands out of chipper chute. Rotating blades in impeller housing can cause serious injury. Use the tamper plug to help push material down into the chute. FIGURE 37 21 CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES • Read and follow the maintenancescheduleand the maintenanceprocedureslistedin thissection. MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE Fill in dates as you complete regular service. Check for loose fasteners _ "_ "_._'_.,,"_F _ _,,J_'_ Service Dates "_/" X Check soft vinyl boot X I Check tire pressure X Check engine oil level X Lubricate X Clean X X Maintain engine per instructions below and in engine manual. BEFOREEACH USE & CHECK FOR LOOSE FASTENERS • Make a thorough visual check of the Chipper Vac for any bolt_ and nuts which may have loosened. RetiaE_en any loose bolts and nuts. ENGINE CHECK VINYL BOOT • Check the vinyl boot (on front of hardtop) for wear. Replace if worn or damaged. • • CHECK TIRE PRESSURE • Check tire pressure regularly. Recommended tire pressure is 12-14 Lbs. CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL • Check oil level before each use. Maintain engine oil as instructed in the separate engine manual. • LUBRICATION • • WARNING: Always stop engine and disconnect spark plug wire before cleaning, lubricating or before performing any repairs or maintenance. MAINTENANCE Check oil level before each use. Maintain engine oil as instructed in the separate engine manual. Service air cleaner every 25 hours under normal conditions. Clean every few hours under extremely dusty conditions. Poor engine performance and flooding usually indicates that the air cleaner should be serviced. To service the air cleaner, refer to the separate engine manual. The spark plug should be cleaned and the gap reset once a season. Spark plug replacement at the start of each seasoCl,is recommended, Check the engine manual for correct plug type and gap specifications. CLEANING At the beginning of each season, lubricate the latch, latch pivot bolt, and the axle where the hitch tongue pivots, with a light machine oil. At least once a season, grease or oil the wheel bearings. Use automotive wheel bearing type grease or 20 weight oil. • • 22 Make sure the cart, the sides and front panel and top are cleaned after each use. Grass clippings and leaves left in the cart will mildew and cause damage if not cleaned out. Clean the engine regularly-with a cloth or brush. Keep the cooling fins on the engine housing clean to permit proper air circulation which is essential to engine performance and life. Be sure to remove all dirt and debris from muffler area. SHARPENING BLADES OR REPLACING CHIPPER NYLOCK NUTS • • • • • Disconnect the spark plug wire and move away from the spark plug. Remove the access plate by removing two hex lock nuts. See figure 38. Locate one of the chipper blades in the access plate opening by rotating the impeller assembly by hand. Remove the blade using a 3/16" allen wrench on the outside of the blade and a 1/2" wrench on the impeller assembly, inside the housing. Remove the other blade in the same manner. Replace or sharpen blades. If sharpening, make certain to remove an equal amount from each blade. Reassemble in reverse order. NOTE: Make certain the blades are reassembled with FIGURE 38 the sharp edge facing upward, as viewed from the access plate opening. • • Clean the engine and the entire unit thoroughly. Refer to engine manual for correct engine storage instructions. • • 23 If storing in an unventilated or metal storage shed, coat metal parts with light oil or silicone to prevent rust. Store unit in a clean, dry area. PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE(S) CORRECTIVE ACTION Engine fails to start 1. 2. 3. 4. Spark plug wire disconnected. Safety switch not contacted.
