OPERATION
VACUUMING OPERATION
VACUUM NOZZLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: is raised and lowered by pushing slightly downward on handle
to reduce tension on the adjuster, and then pulling height adjust trigger on the handle (item 23) up at right rear of
machine. Then select the desired height that fits the task.
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.
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 felt bag 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. 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 4-5).
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.

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
NOTE: Allow green chips to dry before spreading around living plants.
MULCH
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.
CHIPPER OPERATION (TKV only)
Your TKV chipper is designed to process tree branches and limbs up to 2"
(50.8mm) diameter.
Several small branches can be grouped together and fed together into the
chipper (see figure right).
When feeding forked branches, squeeze forks together and feed into chipper
entrance (DO NOT overload). If forks are too large, use a pair of loppers to trim
forks down to size. A lopper storage bracket is provided on every unit (loppers
are not included)
Clearing a clogged chipper (TKV only)
Under normal circumstances, allow time for machine to clear all wood
from chipper hopper before stopping engine. Otherwise, remaining
pieces of wood will jam inside of chipper when engine stops. (See
Tamper below).
Disconnect spark plug wire.
Remove debris bag quick disconnect from debris outlet on machine.
Wearing durable gloves, access impeller through debris outlet on fan housing
and rotate impeller counter clock wise to dislodge and remove jam and remove
debris from hopper with tongs or equivalent. Reconnect debris bag quick
disconnect to machine.
Reconnect spark plug wire.
TAMPER (TKV 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.

BELT TENSION ADJUSTMENT
DO NOT ADJUST WHILE THE MACHINE IS RUNNING!
1. Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.
2. Remove the transmission cover
3. Using two ½” wrenches loosen the two nuts on the cable that connects to the idler arm.
4. The setting of the tension on the belt is controlled by the distance on the threads of the cable. To loosen
tension, move the position towards the end of the threads and in the opposite direction to tighten.
5. Check the travel of the idler arm by engaging the bail, which the drive should start to engage when the bail
is 2 ½ inches away from the handle. The spring, at a relaxed state should be 1.5 inches long on the coil, and
when the bail is in contact with the handle it should be 1.75 inches long. If the belt is too tight it can cause
premature failure and if it is too loose it can come off of the pulley.
6. When satisfied with the position, place the transmission cover back into place and secure. Then run the
machine to make sure the transmission is engaging properly. If the drive will not engage or will not disengage
repeat the previous steps.

CHIPPER BLADE REMOVAL AND SHARPENING (TKV ONLY)
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.
1. Follow the steps 1-6 on the impeller removal instructions.
2. Using a 3/16" Allen wrench and 1/2" open end wrench, remove chipper blade from impeller.
3. Sharpen blade by lightly grinding the cutting edge of the blade at 40 degrees (see figure below). 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.
4. 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
below).
5. Chipper blade installation is in reverse order of removal.
