PREFACE
This is the User Manual for the PowerBoss Commander C Series Sweeper Scrubber.
This manual covers all Standard Commander C Series machine variations beginning May 2009.
We believe this machine will provide excellent service for many years.
However, the best results will be obtained if:
• The machine is operated with reasonable care.
• The machine is maintained regularly per the maintenance schedule provided in the User Manual.
• The machine is maintained with PowerBoss Inc. supplied or equivalent parts.
All right side and left side references to the machine (except for engine) are determined by facing the direction
of forward travel. The front of the engine or engine fan faces the rear of the machine. Some hardware
considered to be common or locally available has been omitted from the parts section to make this manual
clear. Be sure to use equivalent hardware when replacement becomes necessary.
The Model and Serial Number of your machine is shown on the I.D. name plate. This information is needed
when contacting Technical Support or when ordering parts. The I.D. plate is mounted on the console of the
machine left of the operator and adjacent the main broom adjustment access door.
Parts may be ordered by phone,fax or e-mail from any PowerBoss parts and service center. Before
ordering parts or supplies, be sure to have your machine model number and serial number handy. For your

Turning or Replacing the Rear Squeegee Blade
The rear blade on the main squeegee frame has four
different edges that may be used: the front and back
lower edge and the front and back upper edge. When
the edge in use becomes worn to the midpoint of
thickness, turn the rubber to an unused edge in the
order indicated:
1. Front Lower Edge,
2. Opposite Lower Edge,
3. Front upper Edge and
4. Opposite Upper Edge.
Removal and replacement instructions follow. This
procedure can be performed with the squeegee tool on
or off the machine.
NOTE: Removal and replacement of the inner squeegee
rubber is easier if the squeegee frame is
removed from the machine.
1. Unlatch the clamping strap at the center of the
squeegee frame and remove the 2 outer knobs.
2. Remove the metal strap, the two back-up strips
and the outer squeegee blade.
Page 74
3. Turn the side ends of the squeegee blade 180°,
or turn the rubber upside down to expose an
unused edge. Reposition the blade on the pins
of the squeegee frame.
4. Reposition the first back-up strip using the top
holes.
5. Reposition the second back-up strip using the
bottom holes.
6. Reposition the metal strap and reattach the two
outer knobs.
7. Attach the clamp straps at the center being
careful not to bunch the blade.
NOTE: Replace the back-up strips only if they
lose their elasticity.
Main Squeegee Tool Removal
All machines are equipped with auto-squeegee lift. To
remove the squeegee tool, proceed as follows:
1. Engage the parking brake and chock the
wheels.
2. Lower squeegee & pull the pin at the rear of the
squeegee tool.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
3. Remove the knobs at the square lift arms
supports.
4. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the
squeegee.
5. Lift the supports up off the pins on the
squeegee frames and slide the squeegee away
from the machine.
Main Squeegee Tool Installation
1. At the back of the machine, push the squeegee
under the machine into position.
2. Attach the lift arms to the supports onto the
pins on the squeegee frame.
3. On each side of the squeegee, attach the hand
knobs (one on each side) to the squeegee
frame supports.
4. Connect the quick-release pin to the squeegee.
5. Connect the vacuum hose to the squeegee.
Inner Squeegee Replacement
The inner squeegee is a component of the rear
squeegee assembly. When the squeegee is down,
locked and the rear squeegee blade is flared, check
to see if the inner squeegee has become too worn to
make proper even contact with the floor.
1. Remove the main squeegee tool (see removal
instructions).
2. Remove the nuts on the front of the inner
squeegee frame.
3. Remove the strap and the inner squeegee
rubber.
4. Install the new inner squeegee rubber.
5. Position the strap and secure with the nuts.
Auto Squeegee Lift Mechanism
Bearing Replacement: If any binding occurs in the lift
apparatus, replace the bushings, spacers and fiber
glide bearings located on the squeegee lift assembly
as necessary.
NOTE: Bent components may cause binding.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
HOPPER
Flap Replacement
Flaps located at the entrance lip of the hopper must be
replaced when worn or damaged. The flap panels may
be replaced separately.
1. Park the machine on a level surface and
engage the parking brake.
2. Raise the hopper.
3. Turn off the engine
4. Remove the flap retaining angle and worn or
damaged flaps.
5. Install new flaps.
6. Replace the retaining angle.
Floor Clearance
In order to perform properly, the hopper (on both
the low and high dump models) must maintain a
distance of 3½” (8.89 cm) from the floor to the rear
hopper entrance lip. The front of the hopper should
Page 76
be adjusted so that the front bumper aligns with the
hopper frame where the two meet. When properly
adjusted, the front edge of the hopper will be 5”
(12.7 cm) to 6” (15.24 cm) from the floor.
Frame Seal Replacement
Front Frame Seal
The hopper frame seal bolts to the front edge of the
engine pan. Install a new seal by folding it in half to
align the holes. Doubled edge with holes goes on the
bottom. Support the seal straight up while bolting the
retainer bar in place. The seal should fall over the
retainer bar after installation. Be certain that the seal
edges are aligned to prevent twisting of the seal.
Side Frame Seal
The side frame seals should clear the floor by at least
⅛” (3.18 cm). If the bottom of a side seal measures
½” (1.27 cm) or more above the floor, readjust it or
replace it by removing the bolts on the inside of the
wheel wells, installing a new seal, and securing it with
the bolts. The double edge with the holes goes toward
the front.

PARKING BRAKE
Normal adjustment of the parking brake can be
accomplished from the operator compartment. Locate
the knurled handle on the parking brake lever. Turn the
handle clockwise to increase brake tension.
NOTE: Two or three turns is usually adequate. DO
NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
If this adjustment becomes ineffective, it will be
necessary to adjust the cable length.
Adjusting The Parking Brake Cable Length
1. Park the machine on a level surface and chock
the wheels.
2. Place the parking brake lever in the OFF
position.
3. Turn the knurled handle counter-clockwise to
loosen the tension as far as possible.
4. Locate the cable clevis ends for the parking
brake cables in the left front wheel well.
5. Disconnect the clevis ends from the bar.
Commander C Series PB# 4100040UM Rev.B 04/12
PowerBoss, Inc. Copyright 2012
6. Loosen the jam nuts at the base of the clevis.
7. Turn the clevis clockwise three or four complete
turns.
8. Tighten the jam nuts and re-install the clevis
ends onto the bar.
9. Adjust the knurled handle on the parking brake
lever.
Cable Adjustment for Standard brake
1. Locate the parking brake cable in the top of the
left wheel well opening.
2. Loosen the locking nut located against the hex
bar.
3. Thread the cable end into the hex bar.
4. If threads are not sufficient for adjustment,
disconnect the springs, move the cable bars
to the next adjusting hole on the hex bar and
reconnect the springs.
5. Retighten the locking nut against the hex bar.
This adjusts both sets of brake shoes.
6. Test the brakes. Readjust if necessary.
