If damage is discovered, immediately notify the transportation company that delivered
your vacuum. As a shipper, we are unable to report any claim for damage. You must
originate any claim within five (5) days.
This manual is for your protection and information. Please read carefully since failure to
follow precautions could result in discomfort or injury.
Use only as described in this safety operating manual. Use only the manufacturer’s
recommended attachments, accessories, replacement parts and filters. Replace damaged
or worn parts immediately with genuine, original equipment parts to maintain safety and
to protect your limited warranty.
Always turn OFF the vacuum before connecting, disconnecting or working on the
vacuum. This vacuum must be connected to a properly grounded outlet only (see
grounding instructions). The extension cord provided with this unit is 50-foot, 16/3-gauge
wire and MUST be used with this unit to ensure grounding protection. Turn off all
controls before unplugging. Make sure the on/off switch is in the off position. This is
not a toy. Close attention is necessary when used around or near children. Use extra care
when cleaning on stairs.
NOTE: when using the vacuum with a powerhead tool and connection, always turn off
the vacuum and nozzle tool before connecting or disconnecting either the hose or power
nozzle. Depending on your vacuum model, the hose may contain electrical wires.
• DO NOT leave the vacuum when plugged in. Unplug it from the outlet when not in
use and before servicing.
• DO NOT use this vacuum with a damaged cord or plug. If the vacuum is not working
as it should because it has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors or dropped into
water, etc., contact an authorized service center.
• DO NOT unplug the vacuum by pulling the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the
cord. DO NOT pull or carry by the cord, use the cord as a handle, close a door on the
cord, or pull the cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep the cord away from heated
surfaces.
• DO NOT overstretch the safety power cord between the vacuum and the electrical
outlet in the wall.

2.0 Grounding Instructions
DANGER: IMPROPER GROUNDING METHOD CAN RESULT IN A RISK OF
ELECTRIC SHOCK!
Electrical equipment must be grounded. Improper connection of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. If the equipment should malfunction or
breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical current to reduce
the risk of electric shock.
This vacuum is equipped with a cord containing a grounding conductor and grounding
plug. The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the
outlet is properly grounded. DO NOT modify the plug provided with the equipment. If it
will not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, DO NOT connect the grounded
wire to a flat bed terminal. The wire with insulation having an outer surface that is green
with or without yellow stripes is the grounding wire.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian
Electrical Code.

2.0 Grounding Instructions Continued
This electric equipment is for use on a normal 120 volt circuit. It has a grounded plug that
looks like the plug illustrated in (Fig A). A temporary adapter, such as illustrated in (Fig B
and C), may be used to connect this plug into a two-pole receptacle, as shown in (Fig B),
if a properly grounded outlet is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (Fig A) can
be installed by a qualified electrician. The green color rigid ear lug or the like extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded
outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw.
3.0 Care of your Backpack Vacuum
Treat your vacuum as you would any other high grade, precision made product.
Dropping, unreasonable bumping across thresholds and other misuses may result in a
damaged unit which will not be covered under warranty.
When not in use, the power cord should be wrapped around the molded-in cord wrap and
stored in a dry area. After each use, wipe the vacuum body, accessories and power cord
with a slightly damp cloth.
WARNING: DO NOT use vacuum without the proper cloth filtration bag, paper
filter bag and other filters in place. Failure to do so, will VOID your warranty.
If using this vacuum in a paint, sawdust or drywall environment, you must dispose of
the paper filter bag and the shakeout cloth filter bag after each use. Failure to do so will
cause severe damage to your vacuum and VOID your warranty. Dispose of the paper
filter bag in a fireproof container. The combination of urethane and wood, may result in a
combustion.
All filters must be used at all times. Failure to do so will VOID your warranty.

4.0 Operation and Assembly Instructions
4.0 Operation and Assembly Instructions Continued
DRY PREPARATION AND OPERATION ONLY! DO NOT ASSEMBLE OR USE
ON WET SURFACES.
Maintaining the HEPA Cloth Filter:
This vacuum is equipped with an air-thru motor and is designed for dry pickup only.
Ensure assembly and use of this equipment is only conducted in a dry environment. To
begin, unpack the carton and remove the vacuum and attachments (if purchased with
tools). Always exercise caution when handling the vacuum. Dropping the vacuum could
cause permanent damage to the internal components.
Getting Started:
1. Make sure the on/off switch is in the OFF position.
2. Remove the lid and check to ensure you have both a cloth filter bag and paper filter
bag in place. Place the lid back onto the vacuum body, tightening securely. Both bags
must be used at all times. Any damage resulting from the lack of using both bags will
VOID your warranty.
3. Wrap the safety power cord around the molded-in cord wrap on the side of the unit.
Do not tie or loop the pigtail cord with the extension cord.
4. Loosen the shoulder and waist belt straps and slide vacuum onto your back.
5. Connect and tighten the waist belt making sure the majority of the weight is on your
hips and not your shoulders.
6. Adjust the shoulder straps for comfort.
7. Connect the sternum strap for added support and ideal fit.
8. Plug the vacuum into a properly grounded outlet.
9. Turn the unit to the ON position and proceed with vacuuming.
10. Always store vacuum, safety power cord and tools in a cool, dry place indoors.
NOTE: The weight of the vacuum should be distributed on your hips. Adjust any strap as
needed for your custom fit.
When the white disk inside your dome filter is discolored, replace it with a new HEPA
filter with bag support. Replacement time frame of the HEPA filter depends on the
frequency and application of use. For best results, replace every six (6) months.
IMPORTANT: Following the above instructions is critical in prolonging the life of your
vacuum. All filters must be used at all times. Failure to do so will VOID your warranty.
Assembling Attachments:
The vacuum comes assembled, but you will need to install the hose to the wand and the
wand to the attachment.
Wand Assembly (for 2-Piece Wand Only):
• Align the button lock of the upper wand section with the opening
for the button lock in the lower wand section.
• Push the sections together until the button lock slides into place
and the lock is secured.
To Connect Wand to Hose:
• Insert the tapered end of the wand into the swivel cuff at the end
of the hose.
To Connect Wand to Attachments:
• Turn wand nut counterclockwise approximately four (4)
complete turns.
• Insert the tool into the wand and coupling.
• While holding the tool in place, turn nut clockwise until wand
nut is fully locked.
Changing the Paper Filter Bag:
1. Unscrew lid and lift lid off of the body.
2. Remove the full paper bag from the tank and dispose of
properly in a fireproof container.
3. Take a new paper filter bag and set inside cloth filter bag,
expanding it to the sides of the cloth filter bag.
4. Place lid back onto the vacuum body, tightening securely.
Maintaining the Cloth Filter:
The cloth filter should be inspected and cleaned each time you empty the tank. DO NOT
wash the cloth filter. It could cause shrinkage of the cloth and damage to the gasket.
Simply shake off any dust or loose particles and brush the exposed surface with a soft
bristle brush.
