Identify your mower deck (see fold outs) and cut
out the correct discharge opening template for your
mower deck size. If there is no template for your deck
size you can make your own template by marking
around a piece of cardboard held against the edge of
the discharge opening.
,
Tape the template to the face of the adapter, locating
template approximately 1/2" from front and 1/4" down
from top of adapter. Keep as close to top as possible.
See figure 24. Mark outline of template on face of
adapter using white crayon, nail or scriber. Drill a
starting hole inside the outline, then use a saber saw
or key hole saw to cut out the opening. See figure 24.

Position the adapter over the deck opening, and check
for fit of cutout as shown in figure 25. Trim cutout, if
necessary, to allow tilting of adapter, keeping the fit as
close as possible for best vacuum suction.
6. Assemble the adapter bracket to the deck using two
5/16" x 1" hex bolts, 5/16" flat washers and 5/16"
nylock nuts. See figure 27.
NOTE: It may be necessary to use extra 5/16" flat
washers to shim under the bracket next to the deck

Holding the adapter bracket and the deck adapter
together, position the deck adapter on the mower
deck. Keeping the edge of deck adapter as close as
possible to the offset in the adapter bracket, see if the
slot in the adapter bracket can be aligned with one
or two of the deflector holes in your mower deck's
discharge opening. If the bracket can not be located
correctly using existing holes, it will be necessary to
drill one or two 5/16" diameter holes in the deck. See
figure 26.
With deck adapter positioned correctly over the
discharge opening, use the adapter bracket as a
template and drill three 9/32" diameter holes in the top
of the deck adapter. See figure 28.

NOTES

BEFORE
STARTING
HOW TO USE YOUR CHIP-N=VAC
1. Your Chip-N-Vac engine is shipped without oil or
gasoline. Service the Chip-N-Vac engine with oil and
gas as instructed in the separate engine manual.
2. Inspect the Chip-N-Vac to make sure all covers (rear
door, vinyl boot, elbow, hose adapter, hose and deck
adapter are properly attached.
3. Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs).
CAUTION:
Vehicle braking and stability
may be affected with the addition of an
accessory or an attachment. Be aware of
changing conditions on slopes.
1. Inspect the Chip-N-Vac to make sure all covers (rear
door, vinyl boot, elbow, chipper chute with tamper
plug, hose adapter (nozzle), hose and deck adapter
are properly attached.
2. Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs).
3. Check oil and gas in Chip-N-Vac engine.
4. Begin operation at low speed, adjusting forward speed
to match grass height and/or moisture condition to
prevent clogging.
5. Do not attempt to vacuum up any material other
than vegetation found in a normal yard, such as light
branches, leaves, twigs, etc.
WARNING:
Never fill fuel tank indoors, or
with the engine running, or while the engine
is hot. Do not smoke while filling tank.
HOW TO STOP YOUR CHIP-N=VAC
1. To stop engine, move the throttle control lever to the
OFF position.
2. Disconnect spark plug wire from plug to prevent accidental starting while equipment is unattended or is
being worked on.
WARNING:
Should your Chip-N-Vac
become clogged, shut off tractor and
Chip-N-Vac engines. Before attempting
to unclog, remove wire from spark plug to
prevent accidental starting.
CAUTION:
The muffler and adjacent
areas are hot!
6.
7.
8.
9.
To empty cart, shut off tractor engine and set brake.
Shut off Chip-N-Vac engine.
Remove rear door from cart.
Release the latch holding cart down to the tongue by
pulling up on the latch lever. See figure 31.
10. Using a rake or suitable tool, pull the grass clippings
and/or leaves out of cart.
HOW TO START YOUR CHIP-N-VAC
CAUTION:
To avoid possible injury, be
sure that no one is near the cart before
releasing the latch.
WARNING:
Never start or run the engine
without all covers being properly attached to
the blower housing and cart.
11. After cart is emptied, secure cart to tongue with latch
and reattach the rear door and the vinyl boot.
1. Check oil and gas in Chip-N-Vac engine.
2. Attach spark plug wire to spark plug.
3. Move choke lever on engine to CHOKE position.
(A warm engine may not require choking.)
4. Move throttle control lever on engine to FAST position.
5. Grasp starter handle and pull rope out slowly until
engine reaches start of compression cycle (rope will
pull slightly harder at this point). Let the rope rewind
slowly.
6. Pull rope with a rapid, continuous, full arm stroke.
Keep a firm grip on starter handle. Let rope rewind
slowly. Do not let starter handle snap back against
starter.
7. Repeat instructions in two preceding paragraphs until
engine fires. When engine starts, move choke control
gradually to RUN position.
FIGURE 31
18
USING THE CHIPPER
CHUTE
1. Material such as stalks or heavy branches up to 3" in
diameter may be fed into the chipper chute as shown
in figure 32.
2. Be sure to wear eye protection and gloves when
feeding material into the chipper chute.
3. Use the tamper plug, not your hands, to force material
down through the chipper chute.
4. For best performance, it is important to keep the
chipper blades sharp. If the composition of the
material being discharged changes (becomes
stringy, etc.) or if the rate of discharge slows down
considerably, it is likely that the chipper blades are dull
and need to be sharpened or replaced. Refer to the
Service and Adjustments section, on page 21.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to feed any
material larger than 3" in diameter into the
chipper chute. Personal injury or damage to
the machine could result.
DANGER:
Keep hands out of chipper
chute. Rotating blades in impeller housing can
cause serious injury. Use the tamper plug to
help push material down into the chute.

BEFORE
EACH USE
WARNING:
Always stop engine and
disconnect spark plug wire before cleaning,
lubricating or before performing any repairs
or maintenance.
CHECK FOR LOOSE FASTENERS
1. Make a thorough visual check of the Chip-N- Vac
for any bolts and nuts which may have loosened.
Retighten any loose bolts and nuts.
ENGINE
CHECK VINYL BOOT
2. Check the soft vinyl boot (on front of hard top) for
wear. Replace if worn or damaged.
MAINTENANCE
1. Check oil level before each use. Maintain engine oil
as instructed in the separate engine manual.
2. Service air cleaner every 25 hours under normal
conditions. Clean every few hours under extremely
dusty conditions. Poor engine performance and
flooding usually indicates that the air cleaner should
be serviced. To service the air cleaner, refer to the
separate engine manual.
3. The spark plug should be cleaned and the gap
reset once a season. Spark plug replacement is
recommended at the start of each season. Check
the engine manual for correct plug type and gap
specifications.
CHECK TIRE PRESSURE
3. Check tire pressure regularly. Recommended tire
pressure is 12-14 Lbs.
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
4. Check oil level before each use. Maintain engine oil as
instructed in the separate engine manual.
LUBRICATION
CLEANING
1. At the beginning of each season, lubricate the latch,
latch pivot bolt, and the axle where the hitch tongue
pivots, with a light machine oil.
2. At least once a season, grease or oil the wheel
bearings. Use automotive wheel bearing type grease
or 20 weight oil.
1. Make sure the cart, the side and front panels and
top are cleaned after each use. Grass clippings and
leaves left in the cart will mildew and cause damage if
not cleaned out.
2. Clean the engine regularly with a cloth or brush.
Keep the cooling fins on the engine housing clean
to permit proper air circulation which is essential to
engine performance and life. Be sure to remove all dirt
and debris from muffler area.

SHARPENING
BLADES
OR REPLACING
CHIPPER
NYLOCKNUTS
1. Disconnect the spark plug wire and move wire away
from the spark plug.
2. Remove the access plate by removing two hex lock
nuts. See figure 33.
3. Locate one of the chipper blades in the access plate
opening by rotating the impeller assembly by hand.
Remove the blade using a 3/16" allen wrench on
the outside of the blade and a 1/2" wrench on the
ACCESS
PLATE
impeller assembly, inside the housing.
4. Remove the other blade in the same manner.
5. Replace or sharpen blades. If sharpening, make
certain to remove an equal amount from each blade.
Reassemble in reverse order.
NOTE: Make certain the blades are reassembled with
FIGURE
the sharp edge facing upward, as viewed from the access
plate opening.
1. Clean the engine and the entire unit thoroughly.
2. Refer to engine manual for correct engine storage
instructions.
33
