How do I assemble the TURBINE FUSION Leaf Blower, Mulcher & Yard Vacuum?
To assemble the TURBINE FUSION, snap together the two nozzle pieces, making sure that the grooved tabs on the front nozzle piece fit securely into the corresponding cutouts on the back nozzle piece (Featured in the manual as Figure A). Fit the wider end of the tube over the front of the motor housing, lining up the pegs on the motor housing to the channels on the nozzle (See Figure B in the manual). Turn clockwise to lock and secure. That’s it!
Once I put the TURBINE FUSION together, can I disassemble it?
Yes, you can disassemble the TURBINE FUSION after you’ve put it together. Press the orange clip under the nozzle to release the nozzle and twist the nozzle counterclockwise. Separating the motor and nozzle makes the tool more compact for transport or easy storage in tight spaces.
If you need to further disassemble the nozzle, find the grooved indentation on each side near the seam at the middle of the two nozzle pieces. Press down hard on these while pushing the seam against a hard surface. It is difficult to separate, but can be done if necessary.
Are there any precautions I should follow when using the blower with damp leaves? Will I get shocked?
The TURBINE FUSION Electric Leaf Blower is double-insulated to prevent shock, but we recommend that our customers follow standard safety precautions while using our tools - including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back.
The TURBINE FUSION will handle damp leaves, but note that wet leaves may cause clogging. For optimum performance, be sure to allow for proper airflow when vacuuming. When switching from blowing to mulching, be sure the impeller has stopped before opening the protective screen to attach the collection bag.
With a superfine mulching ratio, the WG510 may produce dust when mulching dry leaves. For those with sensitivity to dust and allergens, we recommend taking precautions to protect yourself appropriately.
ATTENTION: The bottom of the motor housing is the air intake for the TURBINE FUSION Leaf Blower, Mulcher & Vacuum. Keep all loose clothing, hair and debris away from this area to avoid accident, injury or damage to the tool. Hold the blower at your side and keep the bottom of the motor housing clear at all times. For safety, if the air intake screen is not closed, the TURBINE FUSION will not operate.
