Install the desired grooming insert into the Groom Hero handpiece
Install from the back side and push forward, lining up the rear tabs until the insert is fully seated.
Attach Groom Hero™ to the Shop Vacuum
For vacuum hose ends 1¼ inches through 2 inches, push vacuum hose end securely into flexible adapter on the end of the Groomer Hero hose. Please note that the connection becomes much stronger when the vacuum is turned on.
If Hose is 2¼ in.: Remove the Rubber Gasket
The Groom Hero™ Vacuum Brush will attach to your vacuum hose end that is 2¼ in. Just remove the rubber gasket as shown before inserting vacuum hose.
Connect the Groomer Hero Adaptor hose to the Groom Hero Brush
Insert the rotating tip into the back of the brush handpiece as far as it will go.
Strap Handpiece to Hand
Insert your hand under the strap and tighten or loosen the strap as necessary for comfort and brush positioning. The Groom Hero™ Equine Vacuum Brush can be used without the hand strap if preferred.
To Groom a Horse, Dog or Livestock:
While holding the brush in your hand, turn on shop vacuum, then recheck the hose connection to the Groom Hero™ adapter to make sure the connection is firm. On first use start slowly to allow the animal a moment to become comfortable with the sound and feel. Then using a normal brushing motion, stroke the Groom Hero™ Brush over the body with gentle pressure to remove dirt, dust, loose hair and to gently massage. The brush can be moved both with the hair and against the hair to penetrate deeper into the coat. Finishing strokes should follow the growth of hair to leave a smooth and lustrous finish.
To Clean Surfaces:
While holding the brush in your hand, turn on shop vacuum, then recheck the hose connection to the Groom Hero™ adapter to make sure the connection is firm. Move the Groom Hero™ Brush across the furniture or surface to be cleaned with moderate pressure until all areas have been cleaned.
