NOTE: This filter is made of high quality
paper designed
to stop very small parti-
cles of dust. The filter can be used for wet
or dry pick up. Handle the filter carefully
when removing to clean or installing
it.
Creases

of the filter.
Cleaning
Your filter should be cleaned often to
maintain
peak vac performance.
Be sure to dry the filter before storing or
picking up dry debris.
IMPORTANT:
After cleaning,
check the
filter for tears or small holes. Do not use a
filter with holes or tears in it. Even a small
hole can cause a lot of dust to come out of
your vac. Replace it immediately.

or
replacement,
unscrew
the filter nut from
the filter cage, remove filter plate and lift
off filter.
WARNING:

wheel.
IMPORTANT:
To avoid damage
to the
blower wheel and motor, always reinstall
the filter before using the vac for dry mate-
rial pickup.
Dry Filter
1. Some removal of dry debris can be
accomplished
without removing
the fil-
ter from the vac. Slap your hand on top
of the power assembly
while the vac is
turned off.
2. For best cleaning
results due to accu-
mulated dust, clean the filter in an open
area. Cleaning
SHOULD
be done out-
doors and not in the living quarters.
3. After filter removal from vac, remove the
dry debris by gently tapping
the filter
against the inside wall of your dust
drum. The debris will loosen and fall.
4. For thorough
cleaning
of dry filter with
fine dust (no debris),
run water through
it as described
under "Wet Filter".
Wet Filter
After filter is removed,
run water through
the filter from a hose or spigot. Take care
that water pressure from the hose is not
strong enough to damage
filter. Remem-
ber: To dry a filter quickly, reinstall the fil-
ter on the vac and allow the unit to run for
approximately
10 minutes. The clean air
rushing through
the filter will dry it.
Installation
Refer to page 5, "Filter Assembly".
Allow the filter to dry before storing the
vac.
