Safety Rules and Instructions: Polarized Plug
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). This equipment must be used with a suitable polarized 2 wire or 3 wire
extension cord. Polarized connections will fit together only one way. Make sure that the
receptacle end of the extension cord has large and small blade slot widths. If the plug does
not fit fully into the extension cord, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, obtain a suitable
extension cord. If the extension cord does not fit fully into the outlet, contact a qualified electri-
cian to install the proper outlet. Do not change the tool plug or extension cord in any way.
Before Operating
SECURING POWER SUPPLY CORD - Secure the extension cord in the tool's built-in cord
retainer as shown in Figure 7.
Switch
On/Off Switch (Fig. 1)
For extra control, your blow vac is fitted with a two speed switch located on the handle of the
powerhead.
The switch has a central off. Position 0.
To use in low speed, move the switch fully to the rear. Position I.
To change to high speed push the switch back to the off position and then fully forward.
Position II.
NOTE: The switch will not operate if the release button, shown in Figure 1, is depressed.
To turn the tool ON, slide the switch forward, as shown in Figure 1. To turn tool OFF, slide
switch to the middle position.
Assembly
USE AS A BLOWER: ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES, WEAR A FILTER MASK IF
THE OPERATION IS DUSTY. USE OF RUBBER GLOVES AND SUBSTANTIAL
FOOTWEAR IS RECOMMENDED WHEN WORKING OUTDOORS. FOR HOUSEHOLD
USE ONLY.
WARNING: When turning the tool off for tube installation or any other reason, wait 10
seconds for the fan to stop rotating before disassembly.
Vacuum Tube Assembly (Fig. 4)
• Vacuum tubes must be assembled together before use.
• To ease assembly apply soapy water solution to joint area.
• Align the notches and the triangles on upper and lower tubes. (Fig. 4)
• Push the lower tube firmly into the upper tube, until the triangles click into place. (Never
operate apart).
• In the interests of safety, it is not intended for the tubes to be separated once assembled.
Blow Tube Assembly (Fig. 2)
• Blow tube must be assembled to the blow clamshell before use.
• Align the circles on the clamshell and the tube.
• Push the tube firmly onto the clamshell until the circles click into place.
Cord Retainer
• A cord retainer is incorporated into the rear of the powerhead. (Fig 7)
• Insert the cord into the powerhead and flip the cord retainer lever against the plug to hold it in
position.
• To release, depress the side button and then pull up lever.
Using Your Product (Fig. 8)
When using as a blower or vacuum, always wear safety glasses. If using in dusty conditions,
wear a filter mask as well.
Blow Mode
• Ensure your product is switched off and disconnected from the main power supply.
• Attach the blow clamshell and tube to the powerhead (Fig. 3) by locating the blower as
indicated by arrow, then pivot about this point until the locking/release catch is fully engaged.
• Hold the blow tube approximately 180mm (7") above the ground, switch your product on and
using a sweeping motion from side to side, advance slowly keeping the accumulated
debris/leaves in front of you (Fig. 9).
• Once you have blown the debris/leaves into a pile, you can convert to vacuum mode to
collect the debris.
• Installing the concentrator will help remove matted debris and leaves (Fig. 12).
Removing Blow/Vacuum Tube
• Switch off your product and disconnect from power supply.
• To disconnect the blow clamshell or vacuum tube from the powerhead, depress the release
button, ensuring the tube does not fall to the ground.
• The release button will not depress if the power switch is in the "on" position. (Fig. 1)
Carrying Strap Assembly
• Fit the carrying strap to the powerhead, if required, and adjust to suit the user.
For your comfort, the shoulder strap is designed to be used in vacuum mode.
1. Dual Point Attachment
- Clip the hook through the eyelet on the powerhead (Fig. 10)
- Clip the hook through the eyelet on the rear of the power head (Fig. 11)
Vacuum Mode
• Switch off your product and disconnect from power supply.
To fit the bag assembly to your product:
Locate the bag rim into the bag holder channel ensuring that the front of the bag is placed
over the vacuum outlet as shown in Fig. 5.
Slide the bag fully into the channel and depress the latch to lock the handle into the bag top.
(Fig. 6)
12
Position the tube slightly above the debris/leaves. Switch your product on, then using a
sweeping motion the debris/leaves will be sucked up the tube, mulched and deposited into
the collection bag. (Fig 8)
For matted debris/leaves your vacuum tube is incorporated with a scraper. Use this scraper
to loosen the debris and continue to vacuum as normal.
As the bag fills the power of the suction will decrease, switch off your product and unplug
from power supply.
To remove the bag, depress the latch to disengage from the bag holder and slide the bag out.
To empty, hold the plastic handle and grab the nylon handle on the underside of the bag. Turn
the bag upside down and shake out any debris and leaves. (Fig. 5C)
• For easier use in vac mode, the tool should be fitted to the user using shoulder strap (Fig. 8)
CAUTION: NEVER REMOVE THE COLLECTION BAG WITHOUT FIRST TURNING
OFF AND UNPLUGGING THE VACUUM.
NOTE: If the suction decreases and the bag is not full, the vacuum tube is probably clogged
with debris. Turn off and unplug the vacuum and clear the tube before continuing.
Operation
• Do not use in vacuum mode without the vacuum tubes and collection bag in place.
• Always switch off and remove the plug from the electrical supply when:
• Changing from blower to vacuum.
• The supply cable has become damaged or entangled.
• You leave your product unattended.
• Clearing a blockage.
• Checking, adjusting, cleaning or working on your product.
• Use your product only in daylight or good artificial light.
Maintenance
• CLEANING AND STORAGE
TURN OFF AND UNPLUG TOOL! (Unplug extension cord at power source.)
Use only mild soap and a damp cloth to clean the tool. Clean out any clippings which may
have accumulated in the Blower/Vac. When used properly with dry leaves the fan chamber
of your Blower/Vac should remain clean. If damp earth and debris are ingested some of the
particles may build up on the inside of the fan chamber. If this happens the performance of
the unit will decrease. This area can be cleaned out by gently wiping out with a damp rag
after disconnecting from the power source. Your Blower/Vac should be stored in a dry place.
CAUTION: DO NOT POUR OR SPRAY WATER ON THE TOOL IN AN ATTEMPT TO
CLEAN.
Do not store the tool on or adjacent to fertilizers or chemicals. Such storage can cause rapid
corrosion of the metal parts.
Use only mild soap and a damp cloth to clean the tool. Never let any liquid get inside the
tool; never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
