OPERATION
VACUUMING OPERATION
VACUUM NOZZLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: is raised and lowered by adjusting front wheel height control.
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 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.
•Machine or pressure-wash debris bag if normal cleaning does not fully clean bag. Bag should be thoroughly dry before
use.
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.

Clean Debris bag

Check bag strap tightness

Engine (See Engine Manual)

Check for excessive vibration
IMPELLER REMOVAL
1. Wait for engine to cool and disconnect spark plug.
2. Drain fuel and oil from engine.
3. Remove bag and remove upper handle.
4. Invert and support machine without engine touching to prevent damage to recoil starter.
5. Remove rear wheels (item 11), and bolt axle bracket (item 48), [one each side, closest to middle inlet
plate (item 3)], washer (item 57) and nut (item 49).
6. Remove intake wrapper (item 2), assembly and middle inlet plate (item 3), eight screws and eight nuts.
7. Remove impeller bolt (item 37) and lock washer (item 36).
8. Lift impeller free of engine.
9. If impeller does not remove easily, obtain a 1" (25.4mm) longer bolt of the same diameter and thread
type as the impeller bolt. Thread longer bolt by hand into crankshaft until bolt bottoms. Using a suitable
gear or wheel puller against the bolt head and impeller back-plate (near the blades), remove impeller from
shaft.
10. Reinstall new impeller, impeller bolt and lock washer in reverse order. Torque impeller bolt to 33-38
ft-lbs (45-52 N.m).
Troubleshooting
