Clean or replace if necessary. 4. Check the air intake and cooling area for dirt or debris and clean as necessary. Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive under certain conditions. BE SURE to install fuel cap after refueling. Fill fuel tank with good quality, clean, unleaded regular gasoline to the level recommended by the engine manufacturer. TO CHECK OR ADD FUEL: - - - - - - Use a funnel to avoid spilling. Do it outdoors. Do not smoke. Stop the engine; allow to cool. Do not overfill. Clean up spilled fuel. STARTING THE ENGINE 1. 2. 3. 4. Check oil level (Daily). Turn fuel shut off valve to OPEN. Put choke control in “CHOKE” position. Move throttle control 1/3 of the way toward high speed position. 5. Turn key to the START position. 6. Let engine warm up. Slowly adjust CHOKE toward RUN position. 11 OPERATION TRUCKLOADER OPERATING This machine has been designed for two methods of vacuuming debris: - With the handle of the Intake Nozzle in the operator’s hands, move the nozzle back and forth in a sweeping motion over the debris - Rotate Intake Nozzle to lay sideways on the ground. By placing the Nozzle in this position, debris can be raked into the nozzle by an operator. While large amounts of debris can be vacuumed quickly with this machine, caution must be taken to avoid blocking the airflow into the Nozzle. STOPPING THE ENGINE When operation is complete or the unit needs to be checked or a clog needs to be cleared: 1. Move the throttle to SLOW. 2. Turn the key switch to the OFF position. 3. Close fuel valve. 4. Note: Impeller will continue to rotate for several seconds after engine is stopped. EXCESSIVE VIBRATION Shut off the engine immediately if abnormal/excessive vibration occurs. Remove spark plug wire. Find the cause of vibration and repair it. Some possible causes for excessive vibration are: - Damaged impeller - Loose impeller bolt - Loose impeller key - Lodged objects CLOGS To prevent clogs, do not overfeed, especially with heavy wet material. Pay attention to how full the debris receptacle is. Overfilled debris receptacles cause material to back up and get tightly packed in the discharge chute. REMOVING CLOGS If a decrease in suction is experienced, there may be a debris blockage in the hose. Often a clogged hose can be cleared by stretching the hose out straight with the engine running. If the hose does not clear, before removing the hose or attempting to clear a clog manually: - Stop the engine. Turn the key switch to the OFF position. - Wait for the fan to come to a complete stop. - Disconnect the spark plug wire so fan movement cannot accidentally start the engine. 12 Removing Clogs ( continued) CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN CLEARING DEBRIS FROM INSIDE THE HOUSING. GLOVES SHOULD BE WORN AS SHARP EDGES ON THE IMPELLER, OR IN THE DEBRIS MAY BE PRESENT. Remove the Hose assembly from the Inlet Flange Assembly. With this removed, remove any debris that is clogging housing. Remove the Discharge Chute. With the Chute removed, inspect the Transition Discharge part of the housing and remove any debris clogging this area. Reassemble removed parts, reconnect the spark plug wire and resume operation. RAISING THE TRUCKLOADER BODY 1. Stop the truckloader engine. 2. Wait for the impeller to come to a complete stop. 3. Open the rear doors of the truckloader body if you are dumping the collected material. Make sure the area above the truckloader is free 4. of hazards such as electrical lines. 5. Press the UP button on the controller to raise the body of the truckloader. USING THE SAFETY ARM 1. T he safety arm must be used when the body of the truckloader is being serviced.
