WARNING: The Engine Exhaust from this product contains chemicals known
to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
WARNING: DO NOT
13. DO NOT tamper with governor springs,
governor links or other parts which may
change the governed engine speed.
1. DO NOT run engine in an enclosed area.
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, an
odorless and deadly poison.
14. DO NOT tamper with the engine speed
selected by the engine manufacturer.
2. DO NOT place hands or feet near moving
or rotating parts.
15. DO NOT check for spark with spark plug
or spark plug wire removed. Use an
approved tester.
3. DO NOT store, spill or use gasoline near
an open flame, or devices such as a stove,
furnace, or water heater which use a pilot
light or devices which can create a spark.
16. DO NOT crank engine with spark plug
removed. If engine is flooded, place throttle
in “FAST” position and crank until engine
starts.
4. DO NOT refuel indoors where area is not
well ventilated. Outdoor refueling is recommended.
17. DO NOT strike flywheel with a hard
object or metal tool as this may cause
flywheel to shatter in operation. Use proper
tools to service engine.

running. Allow engine to cool for 2 minutes
before refueling. Store fuel in approved
safety containers.
6. DO NOT remove fuel tank cap while

18. DO NOT operate engine without a
muffler. Inspect periodically and replace, if
necessary. If engine is equipped with
muffler deflector, inspect periodically and
replace, if necessary, with correct deflector.
7. DO NOT operate engine when smell of
gasoline is present or other explosive
conditions exist.
19. DO NOT operate engine with an
accumulation of grass, leaves, dirt or other
combustible material in the muffler area.
8. DO NOT operate engine if gasoline is
spilled. Move machine away from the spill

OPERATION
16
INTENDED USE: This machine is designed for vacuuming
leaves, grass clippings and other types of organic litter and
for chipping brush, limbs, corn and sunflower stalks and
palm fronds.
Debris mixed with cans, bottles and small amounts of sand
can be vacuumed; however, it is not this machine's primary
purpose. Vacuuming cans, bottles and sand will affect the
longevity of your machine.
Do not operate if excessive vibration occurs. If excessive
vibration occurs, shut engine off immediately and check for
damaged or worn impeller, loose impeller bolt, loose impeller
key, loose engine or lodged foreign objects. Note: See parts
list for proper impeller bolt torque specifications. (See trouble
shooting section on page 12).
Like all mechanical tools, reasonable care must
be used when operating machine.
Inspect machine work area and machine before operating. Make sure that all operators of this equipment are
trained in general machine use and safety.
PUT OIL IN ENGINE BEFORE STARTING.
16.1
STARTING
ENGINE: See engine manufacturer’s instructions
for type and amount of oil and gasoline used.
Engine must be level when checking and filling oil and
gasoline.
ENGINE SPEED: Controlled by throttle lever on the engine.
Under normal conditions, operate at minimum throttle to
accomplish your current cleaning task.
FUEL VALVE: Move fuel valve to "ON" position (when
provided on engine).
16.4
DEBRIS BAG
Debris bags are normal replaceable wear items.
Note: Frequently empty debris to prevent bag overloading with
more weight than you can lift.
An optional bag and dust cover is available for use where debris will be
vacuumed in dusty conditions (see Optional Accessories shown on
page 1).
DO NOT place bag on or near hot surface, such as engine. Run
engine at 1/2 throttle for first 1/2 hour to condition new bag. Your
new bag requires a break-in period to condition the pores of the
material against premature blockage. The entire bag surface
serves as a filter, and must be able to breath to have good vacuum
performance.
Be sure engine has come to a complete stop before removing
or emptying bag.
This vacuum is designed for picking up trash, organic
material and other similar debris (see Safety Warnings page 2-3).
However, many vacuums are used where dust is mixed with
trash. Your unit can intermittently vacuum in dusty areas. Dust
is the greatest cause of lost vacuum performance. However,
following these rules will help maintain your machine's ability to
vacuum in dusty conditions:
• Run machine at idle to quarter throttle.
• The debris bag must be cleaned more frequently.
A vacuum
with a clean, pillow soft bag will have good pickup performance.
One with a dirty, tight bag will have poor pickup performance. If
dirty, empty debris and vigorously shake bag free of dust.
• Pressure-wash debris bag if normal cleaning does not fully
clean bag. Bag should be thoroughly dry before use.
NOTE: Having one or more spare debris bags is a good way to reduce
down time while dirty bags are being cleaned.
DO NOT leave debris in bag while in storage.
CHOKE: Operated with throttle control (Honda only).
PRIMER: Push primer per engine instructions ( B&S only).
THROTTLE: Move remote throttle control to fast position.
Pull starting rope to start engine.
IF YOUR UNIT FAILS TO START:
See Troubleshooting on page 12.
16.2
VACUUMING OPERATION
VACUUM NOZZLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: is
raised and lowered by pulling slightly upward on handle and
pulling height adjust rod (item 23) up at left rear of machine.
FOR MAXIMUM PICKUP: Adjust nozzle close to
debris, but without blocking airflow into the nozzle. NOTE: Never
bury nozzle into debris.
CLEARING A CLOGGED NOZZLE
& EXHAUST: Turn engine off and wait for impeller to
stop completely and disconnect spark plug wire.
Wearing durable gloves, remove clog. Danger, the
clog may contain sharp materials. Reconnect spark
plug wire.
16.3
HANDLING & TRANSPORTING:
Using two people to lift machine is recommended. Lift holding the
handle and front of nozzle. Secure in place during transport.
Part No. 890033
Page 5 of 8
STORAGE
16.5
Never store engine indoors or in enclosed poorly ventilated
areas with fuel in tank, where fuel fumes may reach an open
flame, spark or pilot light, as on a furnace, water heater, clothes
dryer or other gas appliance.
If engine is to be unused for 30 days or more, prepare as
follows:
Be sure engine is cool. Do not smoke. Remove all
gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent gum deposits
from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of
engine. Drain fuel outdoors, into an approved container, away
from open flame. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and
engine runs out of gasoline.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such as Sta-Bil) is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the
formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage
container. Always follow mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 min.
after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach the carburetor.
Do not store with debris in bag.
16.6
COMPOST
Vacuumed leaves, grass and other organic material from your own
yard can be emptied into a pile or composter to provide enriched soil
for later use as fertilizer in gardens and flower beds (see fig. 3).
NOTE:
Allow green chips to dry before spreading around living plants.
