Electric motor powered, wide area vacuum.
Hide thumbs


In the USA this machine operates on a
standard 15 amp 115V, 60 hz, A.C. power
circuit . The amp, hertz, and voltage are listed
on the data label found on each machine.
Using voltages above or below those indicated
on the data label will cause serious damage to
the motors.
If an extension cord is used, the wire size must
be at least one size larger than the power cord
on the machine, and must be limited to 50 feet
(15.5m) in length.


This appliance must be grounded. If it should
malfunction or break down, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and grounding
plug. The plug must be inserted into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt
circuit, and has a grounded plug that looks like
the plug in "Fig. A". A temporary adaptor that
looks like the adaptor in "Fig . C" may be used
to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as
shown in "Fig. B", if a properly grounded outlet
is not available. The temporary adaptor should
be used only until a properly grounded outlet
(Fig. A) can be installed by a qualified
electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or
wire extending from the adaptor must be
connected to a permanent ground such as a
properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever
the adaptor is used, it must be held in place by
a metal screw.
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of
electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service person if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the
appliance - if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
