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 necessary. To determine the minimum wire size required, refer to the chart:

(Unplug the extension cord at the power source.) 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 in a liquid. 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 using a wooden stick as shown in figure 13 after disconnecting from the power source. Your Blower/Vac should be stored in a dry place.


  • Hold the blow tube approximately 7 inches (180mm) above the ground, turn the blower/vac on, and using a sweeping motion from side to side, advance slowly keeping the accumulated debris/leaves in front of you.
  • Once you have blown the debris/leaves into a pile, you can convert to vacuum mode to collect the debris.
  • Using the air concentrator will help remove matted debris and leaves.
  • To use the cord retainer as shown in figure 10B, loop the extension cord over the power head cord and plug the two ends into each other. Then hook the extension cord under the retainer
  • To use the cord retainer as shown in figure 10A, hook the extension cord under the retainer. Then plug the cord from the power head into the extension cord.

SHOCK HAZARD. DO NOT POUR OR SPRAY WATER ON THE TOOL IN AN ATTEMPT TO CLEAN IT. Do not store the tool on or adjacent to fertilizers or chemicals. Such storage can cause rapid corrosion of the metal parts.
