4 gallon portable wet/dry vac

Operation (continued)
Dry Materials
1. The filter must always be in correct
position to reduce the risk of leaks and
possible damage to Vac.
2. When using your Vac to pick up very
fine dust, it will be necessary for you to
empty the drum and clean the filter at
more frequent intervals to maintain
peak Vac performance.
NOTE: A dry filter is necessary to pick up
dry material. If you use your Vac to pick
up dust when the filter is wet, the filter wilt
clog quickly and be very difficult to clean.
Dry the filter before storing.
the Drum
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
injury from accidental starting, unplug
power cord before emptying the drum.
1. Remove the power head of the Vac by
pulling outward on the latches located
on each side of the Vac. Lift off the
power head by the handle.
2. Dump the drum contents into the
proper waste disposal container.
_, WARNING: Do not operate
without filter cage and float, as they
prevent liquid from entering the
impeller and damaging the motor.
1. When picking up small amounts of
liquid the filter may be left in place.
2. When picking up large amounts of
liquid we recommend that the filter be
removed. If the filter is not removed,
it wilt become saturated and misting
may appear in the exhaust.
3. When the liquid in the drum reaches a
level, the float
mechanism will rise automatically to cut
off air-flow. When this happens, turn off
the Vac, unplug the power cord, and
empty the drum. You wilt know that the
float has risen because Vac airflow
ceases and the motor noise wilt
become higher in pitch, due to
increased motor speed.
4. After using the Vac to pick up liquids,
the filter must be dried to reduce the
risk of possible mildew and damage to
the filter.
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of
damage to the Vac do not run motor with
float in raised position.
