information concerning fault finding maintenanceIt is strongly recommended that you read this manual and familiarise yourself with itscontents before commencing any procedures contained within this

introduction toThe output from the generator can be checked withthe machine still erected on the mounting pole byconnecting an ammeter in the circuit The ammeter willie above 5 mph Fig2If there is no reading on the ammeter disconnect theoutput leads from the battery and check the voltage byconnecting a DC voltmeter across the output leads fromthe generator If the measured voltage is over 12

Furlmatic is designed to furl out of the wind in verystrong winds above 40 mph If the machine does not furlout the batteries may be damaged through that the tail rotates freely on its brushes Ifstiff
