- Always operate propane-powered equipment in well-ventilated area.
- DO NOT smoke in the vicinity of propane powered floor equipment.
- DO NOT change pads or make machine adjustments while the machine is running.
- If you ever smell propane gas during operation, shut off the engine and move it outside. Determine, and repair the source of the leak before restarting.
- The pad is spinning very rapidly so keep your hands, feet, hair, arms and clothing away from the spinning pad.
- Do not leave the machine unattended.
- Do not tip the machine fully upward while the engine is running.
- To stop the engine, close the service valve on the propane tank by turning clockwise and allow the engine to run until it stops from lack of fuel, and then shut off the key switch.
- DO NOT overfill the propane tank. If the regulator freezes, turn off the tank valve and remove tank to the outside of the building.
- To bleed excess propane from the tank:
1) Put on insulated rubber safety gloves.
2) Open the liquid level gauge on top of the tank until the propane escapes as a clear vapor instead of white liquid.
3) Close the liquid level gauge securely. Disconnect the fuel line from the tank, remove the tank from the machine, and then store the propane tank in a secure storage cabinet outside the building.
- A propane tank can be transported either on or off the machine.
- In either case it should be secured to the vehicle in its upright position with the service valve closed. Never leave your tanks in a vehicle unsecured or lying on their side.
