!!WARNING!!
Test manholes for gases before using the Smoke Blower. If toxic or flammable gases are present, ventilate the
manhole. Gases can cause injury, asphyxiation and DEATH! If the sewer system has hazardous gases from sewage
or solvents, the Smoke Blower may push them into the adjacent manhole during operation. If you plan on entering
the manhole after the smoke testing operation, test for gases again.

DESCRIPTION
THE HOUSING: A light weight, corrosion-resistant, cast aluminum housing locates the Smoke Blower over the
manhole. The housing provides a sturdy platform for the engine and seals the manhole opening. The impeller area
is totally enclosed by wire guards, preventing entry of large objects or debris and provides personal protection from
the rotating impeller. The two top mounted handles make handling easy. A ½” thick foam pad attached to the
underside of the flange minimizes noise and vibration and prevents excess movement of the unit during operation.
THE ENGINE: The 5.5 horsepower gasoline engine is equipped with a convenient vertical pull recoil starter and
top mounted oil fill/dipstick.
THE IMPELLER: The 16” diameter impeller is designed for high performance and can produce (at the maximum
rated engine speed) a free flow of over 4000 cubic feet per minute. The impeller is a two piece cast aluminum
assembly and 10 chemical resistant polypropylene airfoil style blades. The impeller is attached to a cast aluminum
hub.
SAFETY
1.
Observe all state and federal regulations if entering a manhole. Also follow Cherne’s safety procedures for
entrance into manholes and confined spaces on page 11 of this manual.
2. Stand clear after starting the unit. The high velocity air created by the Smoke Blower may pick, accelerate and
discharge dirt and debris that could injure the operator.
3. Do not operate the unit with the guards loose or removed. The guards protect operators from the rotating
impeller. The guards also aid in preventing objects and debris from entering the impeller area.
4. Do not operate the unit over occupied manholes. The high velocity air moving through the manhole may pick
up and accelerate dirt and debris, causing injury. The Smoke Blower may also draw toxic or flammable gases to
the manhole that were previously undetected.
5. Keep the impeller area free of foreign objects and debris. Severe damage could occur given the high rotating
speeds and small clearance between the housing and impeller.
6. Do not operate the Smoke Blower if it vibrates excessively. The impeller assembly is well balanced. The only
vibration should be what is typical for a small gasoline engine. Any unusual indicates a potentially serious and
dangerous problem.
7. Never operate the Smoke Blower unless it is properly installed in a manhole. Operation under any other
condition could cause an unstable platform, excess vibration and entry of debris in to the Smoke Blower unit.
8. Always wear a safety hat, safety glasses and ear protection when working in sewers, manholes and while
operating the Smoke Blower.
9. Do not operate the Smoke Blower in the presence of gases or liquids that are flammable or toxic. This unit is
capable of moving large volumes of air within the sewer system. The engine can ignite flammable gases and
liquids.
10. Frequently check for loose fasteners before, during and after operation.
11. Follow all instructions and warnings provided by the engine manufacturer regarding safety, operation and
maintenance.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING A CHERNE SMOKE BLOWER
Advance Notice
Press releases to the news media (newspapers, radio and TV) will generate much
public good will and support for a program that will improve the local sewerage
system, and assure compliance with EPA regulations. Such releases should out
line the place, as well as the problems that will be solved by having the smoke
testing done.
Local fire and police departments should be advised daily of the areas being tested,
on a street to street basis. Personnel handling telephone inquiries should be
acquainted with the purposes of the smoke testing program, and be prepared to
advise against unnecessary exposure to the smoke.
Proper advance notices are necessary and the responsibility of the agency or contractor
performing the tests. Door to door notification within 24 hours before the tests is
recommended. This prevents unethical occupants from covering up illegal drains, sump
pumps, etc. before the tests. While giving advance notice discrete neighborhood inquiries
can identify persons suffering from heart and/or lung diseases, such as emphysema, who
should never be exposed to any smoke, including Cherne. Individuals with respiratory
problems should be removed from the premises prior to the tests. Others, such as house
confined invalids, sleeping shift workers and locked in animals should be identified and
evacuated before the test.
The last page of this manual contains a form that conveys the necessary information to
the residents of the affected area. This form, or one similar to it should be distributed to
all of the residents of the affected area.

2.
Place the unit onto the open manhole.
3.

CONVERTING TO A LINE STRINGER
The smoke Blower is a multipurpose unit. It can be converted to draw air for use in a line stringing operations. The
conversion is done by simply changing the impeller. A new line stringer impeller can be ordered directly from
Cherne by requesting part number 014-714.
Follow the Impeller Removal and Installation instruction below to properly change impellers.
IMPELLER REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
1. !!WARNING!! REMOVE THE WIRE FROM THE SPARK PLUG AND ATTACH IT TO
THE RETAINING POST.
2. Remove the three (3) 3/8" impeller retaining bolts (item 31) using a 9/16" wrench. DO NOT remove the center
bolt (item 17).
3. Remove the impeller from the hub.
4. Prior to installing the new impeller, make sure that the fan blade orientation matches that of VIEW P-P for line
stringing operations.
5. Install the new impeller on the hub using the 3/8" bolts that were previously removed. Be sure to tighten the bolts
before operating.
NOTE: Steps 6-9 are for Hub installation only.
6. Remove the center bolt and set screws. Remove the old hub from the shaft. Make sure shaft is clean before
installing new hub. If the Smoke Blower is equipped with a hub spacer (item 35), make sure to put it into the hub
prior to installing the hub.
7. Slide the Woodruff keys (item 11) into place on the shaft then install the new hub.
8. Install the lock washer and center bolt (items 30 & 17) on the end of the engine shaft.
9. Tighten the hub to the shaft with the set screws (item 29).

MAINTENANCE
ENGINE:
Follow the engine manufacture’s instructions with the following exceptions and additions:
1.
When changing the oil using the normal method, the lower guard and impeller must be removed.
a. Remove the guard from the housing by loosening the four (4) attaching bolts and pulling the guard down.
b. Remove the impeller, change the oil, then reinstall the impeller.
c. When reinstalling the lower guard, ensure the proper self locking nuts are used and all fasteners are
tightened completely.
2.
An alternate method for changing the oil:
a. drain all fuel from the engine tank and carburetor.
b. Remove the oil cap and dipstick.
c. Slowly drain the oil through the oil fill tube by tilting the Smoke Blower and engine assembly towards the
oil fill opening. Care should be taken to ensure all oil flows from the oil sump to the corner of the engine
and through the fill tube.
FASTENERS
Check all fasteners frequently. Ensure the fasteners are properly installed using self locking nuts and thread locking
compound. Vibration during normal usage with small gas engines can cause the fasteners to loosen.
The Cherne Smoke Blower uses a combination of self locking nuts and thread locking compound on all fasteners to
help minimize these problems.
