Re: digital photocopier

I rarely carry a vac any more. Only if i spill toner on carpet or maybe suck out a dv unit. The new copiers run so clean, i carry a 32-3 gallon refillable air tank. You can refill it at any gas station or if you have a compressor. Take out all the guts and engine (drum , developer units. And give that baby agood blowig out. It wont hurt it and its the fastes way to do a pm there is. I,ve been iindependent sevice for 25 years and go out side the standard rules. Youll find out how efficient it is once you do it. Thatll clean that baby out, especially if your packin 80 pounds of air pressure. You can get a tank with all the attachments at farm and fleet, menards, ar any other store like that.

1- the best way is to get a silicone based rag. It cleans and lubricates, DO NOT TOUCH DRUM, or transfer roller.
2- And/or use a vacuum that can handle small particles. regular household vacs WILL NOT WORK, the toner is too fine and will blow through the bag in the air.
3- It depends on where there is toner left, as long as it's not in the paper path and will not leave residue on the paper,it's not going to harm the machine (just looks filthy)
