Figure A
Figure B
The hardware for attaching the upper handle to the lower
is in the parts bag. Install upper handle (item 30), to
preassembled lower handle (item 28) by sliding the upper
over and down the outside of the lower handle. Using bolt
(items #36 and 71), washers (item #10) & lock nut (item
#11) to install upper handle to lower handle. Note: The
Pigtail bolt should go on the side that the pull start is on
and the open end should be facing down. Finish installing
the other side of the upper handle assembly using screw
and lock nut provided.
The throttle control will be attached to the throttle arm on
the engine and wrapped around the engine for shipping.
Unwrap and secure throttle control (item #31) to upper
handle with screws (item #17). Screws will already be
mounted in handle, simply remove and use to mount the
throttle control securing the cable with two Ty-wraps. The
Aim-and-Shoot TM is not attached, you will need to unroll
the cable and attach the ball end to the lever and seat the
cable end into the hole on the saddle clamp, with the
cable running through the slot. To keep the cable from
being damaged use three ty-wraps (item 74) to secure it
to the handle as shown making sure that the cable is not
rubbing against the tire. Note: the cable should be seated
properly in the saddle and should follow the contours of
the handle.

BLOWING OPERATION
Your Billy Goat Force blower is equipped with an air director cone and the patented Aim-N-Shoot TM control lever to allow
the operator to direct the air stream up or down as required to assist in moving debris. This feature is extremely useful
when debris has piled up to the point that it cannot be blown any farther. The air stream can be directed upward to blow
the top of the debris pile over and allow the operator to continue moving more debris farther.
ADJUSTING AIR DIRECTOR
To adjust air direction, squeeze Aim-N-ShootTM control lever. When you want to blow debris at the same angle for an
extended period, choose a suitable position and use the finger controlled push button lock to lock the cone in position.
For operations that do not require the use of the Aim-N-ShootTM feature the manual adjustment knob, pictured below, can
be used to permanently lock the cone into position. NOTE: be sure to release the knob when returning to using the AimN-ShootTM.
DO NOT position director cone to where it will blow debris towards people, vehicles or other objects in vicinity. Flying
debris may damage, harm, or cause injury to people or objects in air flow range.
Manual Adjustment
knob
FRONT DIVERTER POSITIONING (F9 and F13 models only)
The removable front diverter adapter can be slipped inside the cone to direct the air stream forward. First turn off engine,
and then simply collapse the fold in the larger opening of the diverter and slide inside the cone and allow it to expand.
Then position to the desired angle by rotating the diverter. This option is extremely useful for cleaning out long cracks in
pavement or for cleaning under bushes, building overhangs or along curbs.
WARNING: Unit will be more difficult to control due to the air exiting the unit. Keep hands on the unit at all times when
using the front diverter. Please note that the Aim-N-ShootTM feature will not function when the Front Diverter is installed.
