Ensure the thickness of uncompacted material is approximately 300mm.
The material must be slightly moist (not wet and not dry) throughout the layer.
3 to 4 passes with the machine advancing at its normal pace will usually result in optimum compacting results.
Do not over compact or run the machine on a hard surface as this will cause vast damage to the machine.
Always run the machine at full speed.
Do not push or pull the machine - just guide it without leaning heavily on it.
Always use Coastal Hire supplied 2 Stroke Fuel mix.
Do not attempt to service the air filter or any other part of the machine. Call a Coastal Hire technician.
Do's and Donts:
Be careful that the machine does not jump onto your feet. The force is high enough to cause serious damage.
Do not allow the machine to run against any adjacent structure or rock etc.
Never operate the machine on hard or solid surfaces. Eg: concrete, asphalt etc.
Before shutting down ensure that the machine is running on a safe flat surface and is in your control.
Reduce the throttle fully which will cut the engine immediately. Turn off the petrol lever.
Use only Coastal Hire ready mix. This is a 50:1 ration of fuel and premium 2 stroke oil.
Ensure petrol switch is off before refueling.
Machine may not be running whilst refueling.
Do not smoke or use a cell phone whilst refueling.
Remove fuel cap and place in clean dry area within reach of the machine.
Pour the petrol into the fuel tank.
Replace fuel cap and burrow fuel canister.
Do not place any plastic bags around the fuel cap as this will close the breather hole in the cap.
