OPERATION
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).

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.
(fig. 2) Note: Dry wood is
harder to chip than
green wood.
16.5
Having one or more spare debris bags is a good way to reduce down time
while dirty bags are being cleaned.
•DO NOT
MULCH
leave debris in bag while in storage.
Wood chips made from branches in your own yard make excellent mulch. A thick blanket of wood chips around plants and
flowers to keeps weeds out and moisture in.
16.6
COMPOST
ENGINE
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.
Note: Allow green chips to dry before spreading around living
plants.
When servicing engine refer to specific manufacturers engine
owner's manual. All engine warranty is covered by the specific
engine manufacturer. If your engine requires warranty or other
repair work contact your local servicing engine dealer. When
contacting a dealer for service it is a good idea to have your
engine model number available for reference(See table page 11).
If you can not locate a servicing dealer in your area you can
contact the manufacturers national service organization.

TAMPER-TKD ONLY
Before turning machine off, use the Tamper to slowly push
remaining pieces of wood through the chipper. This can
prevent any remaining wood from jamming in the chipper when
machine is turned off.
Do not leave tamper on the ground, store tamper in the chipper
hopper.
HANDLING & TRANSPORTING:
Using two people to lift machine is recommended. Lift holding the
handle and front of nozzle. Secure in place during transport.
STORAGE
16.11
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.
Tamper Storage Position
Do not store with debris in bag.

17.1 IMPELLER REMOVAL and CHIPPER ADJUSTMENT
Chipper blades are normal replaceable wear items.
DANGER Chipper blade is sharp.
Replace any damaged blade.
Depending on the type and amount of wood being chipped, the
chipper blade will eventually get dull, losing it’s cutting ability.
Evidence of a dull blade is a noticeably reduced chipping ability or a
rough cut on end of branch.
Note: The chipper blade gap is factory set and should be checked
each time impeller is removed from engine crankshaft and reset if
required. If reassembly requires a different quantity of shim
washers, Billy Goat® shim washer must be used.
10. Using a 3/16" Allen wrench and 1/2" open end wrench, remove
chipper blade from impeller.
11. Sharpen blade by lightly grinding the cutting edge of the blade
at 40 degrees (see fig. 5). It is not necessary to remove all nicks
from the cutting edge. CAUTION: Be careful to avoid heat buildup
in the blade during sharpening. This will reduce it’s heat- treated
hardness properties and will reduce blade life. Evidence of too
much heat build-up is a change of color along sharpened edge.
12. The same chipper blade can be sharpened several times.
However, blade replacement is required when blade no longer
overhangs the chip relief hole in impeller back plate or if increased
vibration occurs (see fig. 5).
13. Chipper blade installation is in reverse order of removal.
IMPELLER REMOVAL
1. Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.
