The motor housing has a spring loaded, hinged cover over the fan blades (so you don't chop your fingers off when using it as a blower). Open the cover using a screwdriver or narrow tool. Holding the cover open, attach the vacuum tube. Attach the collection bag to the discharge port (same place you attach the blower tubes) and secure in place using the velcro strip sewn onto the bag. Adjust the ******** the bag to fit your shoulder, turn power on and go. To empty the bag, just unzip the bag completely. Make sure you tighten the velcro strip so the bag doesn't come off while you are sucking up leaves.
OK this may seem difficult but its really not. The spring door there are only 2 things to do with it open. Either you put in the round circular attachment and then close the door or you attach the bigger of the 2 "funnels."
The big funnel is used to **** up the leaves and it will NOT work WITH that circular attachment attached. The Barracuda will NOT blow leaves without the circular attachment.
If you want to blow leaves, open the swing door, put in the circular piece with a twist to keep it in place, close the door and attach the smaller "funnel" to the smaller opening on the front side of the blower.
If you want to **** up leaves open that swing door, take out the circular piece HOLDING OPEN the swing door and in that same place attach the larger "funnel". Where the smaller funnel goes is where you attach the bag! There should be a small opening in the bag with a velcro strap. Put that over the opening of the blower, attach in place with the velcro and your ready to **** the leaves! When putting on the bag, make sure the bag shoulder strap is facing the top of the blower, not the swing door.
Hope that helps. Now on to find the solution to my problem!
The bag should fasten to the blower where the blowing tube comes out. (blowing tube is removed to install the bag, and a pick up tube is installed on the 'screen door') It should have a tightening strap or velcro to hold it in place.
