Model 462-IC/H/PRO/K Assembly Instructions:
1. Mount hitch (26) to tractor. Each different tractor has its own specific hitch so the
look and method of attachment may be slightly different than pictured, but the hitch
should always be mounted with the lip upward. Many come with specific instructions
in the box with the hitch. (Fig 1)
2. Slip vertical support (7) into receiver tube on frame (1), with offset towards tractor
(away from frame) as shown. Align slot in support brace (28) with hole about
halfway up vertical support (7) and loosely secure with 3/8” x 2 1/2” hexbolt and
whizlock nut. Adjust the height of the vertical support until the lower hole in the
brace aligns with the hole in the top of the box on the frame (1). Loosely secure the
upright with a 3/8” x 2 1/2” hexbolt and whizlock nut and the bottom of the brace
with a 3/8” x 1” hexbolt and whizlock nut. (Fig. 2)
3. Attach frame (1) onto hitch (29) by hooking lip of frame box onto lip of hitch and
sliding the frame to the right or left until hole in bottom of hitch box aligns with hole
in drawplate of the hitch installed in step 1. Secure with 5/8” x 1 1/2” carriage bolt,
5/8” split lock washer and 5/8” hexnut. Once secured, pivot lock tab over corner of
lip on the frame (1) and tighten bolt. (Fig. 3)
4. Mount air turbine assembly onto frame (1) with four 5/16” x 1 1/4” hexbolts, 5/16”
flatwashers and 5/16” locknuts. (Fig. 4)
5. Attach container holder (20) to frame with two 5/8” x 1” hexbolts and locknuts.
Tighten bolts until ring supports the container (19) in a tilted position. (Fig. 5)
6. Attach eyebolts (8) to brackets on vertical support by trapping brackets between 5/16”
hexnut and 5/16” whizlock. Rotate eyebolts so that eyelets face from front to back.
(Fig. 6)
7. The molded top assembly has been partially assembled by the factory. Fit the filter
(16) over the filter support inside the top. Slide intake nozzle (21) through hole in top
from the inside out with the lip inside. Attach the latch (18) to molded top with two
1/4” x 3/4” truss head screws and whizlock nuts. (Fig. 7)
8. Place container in container ring. Set top assembly down onto container. Align 1/2”
swivel hole in top assembly (hole furthest from top) with top hole in vertical support.
Secure with 1/2” x 2 1/2” hexbolt and 1/2” nylon locknut. Tighten until slight drag
can be felt when pivoting assembly. (Fig. 8)
9. Pivot top assembly back until the springs (9) can be attached to upper spring retainers
on top support and to the eyebolts on vertical support installed in step 6. Once springs
are attached, pull top assembly down onto container and immediately slip 3/8” x
2 1/4” clevis pin through locking hole in top support and secure with 1/8” cotter key.
This locking pin will not allow top to rotate all the way around and allow the springs
to come off. Rotate container until container latch (18) lines up with a handle on
container (19) and secure latch by locking it over handle. Note: latch may have to be
adjusted to be tight on handle. Once achieved, tighten bolts in vertical support (7) and
vertical support brace (27). (Fig. 9 & 10)
10. Attach discharge hose (23) to intake nozzle in molded top with 6” band clamp (22)
Note: try to bunch a few ribs of hose up between the band clamp and the molded top
to achieve a more airtight attachment. Once achieved, attach the other end of exhaust
hose to the exhaust on the blower housing with the other 6” band clamp (22)
provided. (Fig. 11)
5
11. Attach intake hose (25) to inlet on blower housing with 8” band clamp (24). (Fig. 12)
12. Attach chute to mower deck. The chutes are also deck specific so your chute may
look and attach differently than what is pictured. Usually the chutes require mounting
an adapter to the deck to accept the bracket on the chute or for the chute to pin into it.
Most of the time the adapters pick up existing holes on the deck but occasionally they
do not. If they do not clip or pin the chute into the adapter, hold the chute up to the
deck and adjust to the best fit. Once best fit is achieved, mark and drill holes through
the deck, if 1/4” hardware is to be used drill with 9/32” bit, if 5/16” hardware is to be
used drill with 11/32” bit and if 3/8” hardware is to be used drill with 13/32” drillbit.
After drilled, attach with hardware provide. (Fig. 13)
13. Cut intake hose to fit and attach free end of intake hose (25) to discharge chute with
8” band clamp (24). (Fig. 14)
14. Read engine-operating instructions before starting.
OPERATING PROCEDURE
1. Follow engine manufacturer's instructions in preparing engine for operation.
2. Inspect area to be vacuumed and pickup all harmful objects and litter. Rocks and other harmful debris
can do serious damage to vacuum assembly and cause bodily injury.
3. For best vacuuming results operate tractor at manufacturer's recommended speed for best cutting. If
grass is high, mow first and vacuum on the second pass.
4. When mowing keep discharge chute to the outside of cutting area for better cut and efficient pickup of
grass clippings and leaves.
5. Your vacuum is preset to run at approximately 3800-RPM, at no load. Do not slow down engine.
6. SHUT OFF ENGINE TO UNLOAD.
7. When operating tractor on slope or grade, exercise extreme caution. Do not cut across grade or slope.
Mow directly up and down hills.
8. Periodically check all fasteners for tightness.
9. Listen for unusual vibration of engine or air turbine. If excessive vibration is present, STOP engine and
check for damage to turbine fan.
10. Always shut off tractor engine and vacuum engine before servicing.
11. Replace deflector shield when discharge chute is removed.
12. When removing clogs, SHUT OFF ALL ENGINES.
