SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
DO NOT operate Brown Ride-On Blower-Vac until thoroughly reading and
understanding this manual and becoming familiar with the operation of the
Brown Ride-On Blower-Vac.
DO NOT touch engine muffler or other hot surfaces.
DO NOT stand near blower discharge ports or adjust ports so that discharge

thrown from machine during certain maneuvers. Operator should slow down
during tight turns or while operating on uneven terrain, as well as maintain
a firm grip on operator handlebar at all times.

TEST SAFETY SWITCHES
A. TEST PARKING BRAKE SAFETY SWITCH
1. Disengage parking brake
2. Turn key to start position
Result: Engine should not crank
B. TEST FAN HOUSING GUARD SAFETY SWITCH
1. Engage parking brake
2. Remove fan housing guard
3. Turn key to start position
Result: Engine should not crank
(re-secure fan housing guard after test)
C. TEST OPERATOR PLATFORM SAFETY SWITCH
1. Engage parking brake
2. Stand on operator platform
3. Turn key to start position and crank engine
4. Disengage parking brake
5. Place one foot on ground behind operator platform
6. Remove pressure from operator platform with remaining foot
Result: Engine should shut off
(re-engage parking brake after test)
NOTE: If parking brake is engaged, the engine will continue running when the operator steps off the operator platform. The engine
should only be allowed to run without operator on platform when
the operator is using truck loader attachment on even terrain.

OPERATION
Engine Starting Procedure
A. Check Brown Ride-On Blower-Vac to ensure entire machine is clear of debris and all guards are in place.
B. Ensure airflow dampers are closed.
C. Engage parking brake.
D. Turn ignition to “ON” position.
E. Close choke if engine is cold.
F. Turn key to start engine.
G. As the engine warms, gradually move the choke back to the
open position
Using Hydrostatic Controls
Pushing a hydrostatic control lever forward will cause that lever’s corresponding
drive wheel to provide forward movement. The amount of input dictates the
speed of that wheel. The same applies when pulling the lever backward. This
will cause the corresponding drive wheel to provide backward movement with
the speed determined by the amount of input. A top-down drawing of the
hydrostatic controls is provided below.
PAGE 10
OPERATION
Controlling Hydrostatic Drive
This shows the neutral position. No input is being provided to either control.
This input will result in straight forward motion.
This input will result in straight backward motion.
This input will result in a left turn.
PAGE 11
OPERATION
Controlling Hydrostatic Drive
This input will result in a right turn.
This input will result in a stationary (ZTR) left turn on axis.
This input will result in a stationary (ZTR) right turn on axis.
PAGE 12
OPERATION
POSITIONING AIRFLOW DAMPERS
The Brown Ride-on Blower-Vac utilizes two independently controlled airflow
dampers in the air discharge port. This allows the operator to more fully control
the direction of airflow in order to accommodate varying conditions. The damper
control switches are located on the left side of the operator control panel. The
upper switch controls the forward damper and the lower switch controls the
rear damper. The image below illustrates this control interface.
Optimal positioning of Brown Ride-On Blower-Vac airflow dampers will
vary based on factors including: terrain; operator preference; nature of
material being moved; engine rpm; forward speed; and distance between
Brown Ride-On Blower-Vac and material being moved. Each operator will
need to experiment with different front and rear damper configurations in
order to achieve the most effective air pattern. The image below illustrates a
configuration that provides downward airflow from the front of the discharge
port and a more level airflow from the rear half of the port. A configuration
such as this may be beneficial for situations such as cleaning curbs, but optimal
positioning will vary per type of operation.
