USER MANUAL 2 32401131(1)2005-03 A 1 Introduction The operational safety of the vacuum cleaner is entrusted to those who work with it every day. This manual has been compiled in order to inform operators about the precautions and regulations to ensure their safety and allow the vacuum cleaner to remain in good working condition. Before starting the vacuum cleaner, the personnel authorised to work with it, must become thoroughly familiar with the contents of this Manual. Keep the manual near the vacuum cleaner, store it in a safe and dry place, away from direct sunlight and at hand for future reference. This Manual reflects the state-of-the-art technology at the time of sale and cannot be considered adequate if modifications are subsequently made. The manufacturer reserves the right the update the production range and relative manuals at any time without being obliged to update previous vacuum cleaners and manuals. In case of doubt, consult your nearest Nilfisk-Advance Service Center. 1.1 Description This vacuum cleaner has been especially designed to collect shavings, scraps, dust and various waste materials. The vacuum cleaner is mounted on tough rubber wheels, two of which are castors, in order to make it easy to handle. Besides, the vacuum cleaner is equipped with brakes, to safely stop it in the place of use. The vacuum cleaner can be used in commercial environments, such as hotels, schools, hospitals, factories, shops and offices. The vacuum cleaner has been designed and manufactured to operate in industrial environments, where it can be used for normal cleaning operations. The collected material is subjected to a centrifugal action inside the container where the coarser items fall down, owing to their weight. The air passes through a filtering surface where the larger solid particles are retained. The filter clogging sensor (vacuum switch) installed on the vacuum cleaner detects the vacuum created by the filter and warns the operator when the suction power is excessively reduced. Nilfisk-Advance offers vacuum cleaners that can work with fluids. Vacuum cleaners with absolute filters are also available. The high quality of the vacuum cleaner is guaranteed by the strictest tests. Materials and components are subjected to a series of strict inspections during the various production phases in order to ascertain compliance with the established high qualitative standards. WARNING! Read this Manual before operating and servicing the vacuum cleaner. Comply with the instructions and warnings shown on the plates. Failure to do so could cause personal injuries and even death. Check that the plates are always legible. Otherwise, replace them. In case of emergency, turn off the main power switch and disconnect the vacuum cleaner plug. NOTE Read this manual carefully before using the vacuum cleaner.

USER MANUAL 32401131(1)2005-03 A 7 6 Controls (Fig. 3) 1. Filter clogging indicator. When the yellow light turns on, the filter is clogged or the suction flow is obstructed downstream of the filter. Remove the accessories and try to check. If the yellow light stays on, the filter must be cleaned and, if necessary, replaced. For further information, see paragraph 8.2. 2. Power on indicator 3. If the white light turns on, the vacuum cleaner is operating. Motors ON/OFF switches, green coloured (there can be 2 or 3 switches, according to the type of vacuum cleaner). 7 Starting and stopping (Fig. 3 and 4) 7.1 Precautions 7.2 Starting Make sure that the vacuum cleaner has been properly connected to the electrical mains. In particular, ensure that the electrical mains voltage and frequency values match the data on the vacuum cleaner plate (see Fig.1). Install the desired accessories to the suction inlet. Bring the vacuum cleaner where it has to be used. Lock the front wheels by pressing the locking levers downwards. Insert the power cord plug into the wall socket. In order to start the motors (2 or 3 motors), press the green switches, one at a time. The lighting of the green light indicates that the motor is running. In order to obtain the maximum suction power, all the motors (2 or 3) must be turned on, and they must operate simultaneously. The motors must always be turned ON and OFF one at a time. When a lower suction power is required, it is possible to use only one motor at a time. 8 How to use the vacuum cleaner 8.1 Correct use Before using the vacuum cleaner, connect the hose to the suction inlet (see paragraph 7.2). If the suction hoses are very long, try to keep them as straight as possible. Do not allow them to become bent or twisted as this will cause easy wear and clogging. When the vacuum cleaner is turned on, the suction power is created to collect the waste material through the suction inlet. The waste material passes through the hose and the accessories until it reaches the suction inlet “4” and then proceeds to the dust container “6” where a baffle “5” in the filtering unit subjects it to a centrifugal action causing the heavier solids to drop to the bottom of the dust container “6”. The main filter “3” retains the lighter particles in the suction flow which proceeds to the HEPA filter, if installed. WARNING! Unauthorized personnel are forbidden to use the vacuum cleaner. The operator must make sure that the all protections and safety devices are installed and efficient. WARNING! If the vacuum cleaner is used for collecting fluids or wet materials, and leaks occur, the vacuum cleaner must be immediately turned off, cleaned and dried, and all filters must be replaced.

USER MANUAL 32401131(1)2005-03 A 13 14 Maintenance 14.1 Foreword The operator must disassemble, clean and service the vacuum cleaner only when these procedures cannot cause damage to the personnel in charge for the maintenance and other people. Precautions include cleaning before disassembly, forced ventilation in the room where the vacuum cleaner is disassembled, cleaning of the place where maintenance is performed and protective clothing. Vacuum cleaners for dust class H and M needs to be cleaned in their exterior parts. Collect the dust or seal it before the vacuum cleaner is taken out of the danger zone. All vacuum cleaner components are to be considered contaminated when they are taken out of the danger zone, so avoid to shatter the dust. The suction unit does not require any particular maintenance or lubrication. However, remember that correct use and maintenance are essential if the safety and efficiency of the vacuum cleaner are to be guaranteed. To ensure regular and constant operation and to prevent the guarantee from becoming void, only ever use genuine Nilfisk-Advance spare parts when repairs are needed. For dust class “M” and “H”, it is necessary to close the suction inlet with a plug during transport or filter shacking. 14.2 Checks and inspections on start-up The customer should proceed with the following inspections to ensure that the vacuum cleaner has not been damaged during transport. 14.2.1 Before starting Check that the mains voltage value corresponds to that for which the vacuum cleaner is preset (see the plate on paragraph 3.1, Fig. 1). Check that all warning and danger plates are affixed and legible. Check that all protections are installed and efficient. 14.2.2 During the vacuum cleaner operation Check that all the air seals are perfectly tight. Check that all fixed protections are efficient. Perform suction test using the same materials as that used during work. This will ascertain whether all parts of the vacuum cleaner operate correctly. 14.3 Routine maintenance Strictly comply with the following operations to ensure that the vacuum cleaner remains in a constantly reliable condition. During maintenance or repair procedure, it is necessary to dispose of all the contaminated objects that cannot be properly cleaned. These objects must be disposed of in waterproof bags, according to the law in force. 14.3.1 Before each work shift Check that all warning and danger plates are affixed and legible. Replace them if they are damaged or incomplete. Check that the dust container is empty. Otherwise, empty it. See paragraph 8.3. 14.3.2 Every 200 hours (monthly) Check the tightness of the vacuum cleaner. There must be no leaks. Check the condition of the suction hoses and other accessories. They must not be torn, cut or broken since this would lower the suction power. Check that the power cord has not been damaged, torn or crushed. Check the condition of the main filter. It must be undamaged, i.e. there must be no tears, holes or other damage. Change the filter, if necessary. 14.3.3 Every 2000 hours (once every year) Check the condition of the suction unit. Have the vacuum cleaner completely overhauled by the manufacturer or by an authorized Service Center. 14.4 How to perform the required inspections The following instructions show how to perform the required inspections.
