• DO NOT put any objects into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair and
everything that may reduce air flow.
KEEP hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
• TURN OFF all controls before unplugging.
• DO NOT vacuum water, other liquids, or wet objects. Never immerse any part of the tool in liquid.
• DO NOT handle plug or appliance with wet hands.
• KEEP CHILDREN, BYSTANDERS AND ANIMALS AWAY from the work area a minimum of 30 feet (10 meters)
when starting or operating the tool. Do not blow debris in directions of bystanders.
INSPECT THE AREA before using the tool. Remove all debris and hard objects such as rocks, glass, wire, etc. that
can ricochet, be thrown, or otherwise cause injury or damage during operation. As a vacuum, the tool is designed to
pick up dry material such as leaves, grass, small twigs, and bits of paper. Do not vacuum stones, gravel, metal, broken
WARNING: Shock Hazard. To reduce the risk of electrical shock; do not expose to rain, do not use on wet
surfaces. Store indoors.
WARNING: Cut Hazard. Turn off and unplug unit, then wait until fan stops or at least 10 seconds before removing
the blower or vacuum tube assemblies.

Servicing of Double Insulated Appliances
Your Blower/Vac is double-insulated to give you added safety. In a double insulated appliance, two systems of
insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double insulated appliance, nor
should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a double insulated appliance requires extreme
care and knowledge of the system and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a
double insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they replace. A double insulated appliance is marked with the
words double insulated or "double insulation". The symbol (square within a square) may also be marked on the
Safety Rules and Instructions: Extension Cords
Double insulated tools have 2-wire cords and can be used with 2-wire or 3-wire extension cords. Only round jacketed
extension cords should be used, and we recommend that they be listed by Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) (C.S.A. in
Canada). If the extension will be used outside, the cord must be suitable for outdoor use. Any cord marked as outdoor
can also be used for indoor work.
An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for safety, and to prevent loss of
power and overheating. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is 16
gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension to make up the total length, be sure
each individual extension contains at least the minimum wire size. Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose
or exposed wires, damaged insulation, and defective fittings. Make any needed repairs or replace the cord if
To determine the minimum wire size required, refer to the chart:
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 equip-
ment 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 ex-
tension cord does not fit fully into the outlet, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the
tool plug or extension cord in any way.
