Step 1- Install each leg and lock it into place by tightening the knob.

Make sure that you have a level surface to assemble your machine.  Place each leg onto a square leg receiver with the knob-nut on top.  Slide the leg as far onto the receiver as it will go.  Place a knob into each leg and tighten it until the leg is locked securely in place.  Check each leg to insure that it is tight and does not move.

Step 2- Put the height adjustment collar onto the axle and tighten the knob.

The axle is shipped inside the support column and must be pulled up to slide the height adjustment collar onto it.  Place two fingers inside the axle and pull it up at least 6 inches.  Slide the collar onto it and tighten the adjustment knob locking the collar securely into place.

Step 3- Apply heavy duty wheel axle grease to the machine’s axle for lubrication.

To lubricate the machine’s axle, grab the top component and pull the axle up and out of the support column.  Apply grease to the axle below the height adjustment collar.  Spin the top component completely around several times to evenly spread the grease.  Carefully slide the axle back into the support column.  Always leave your axle inside the column.  The grease used for this application is the heavy-duty wheel axle grease that can be purchased at any auto parts store or automotive section of any mass merchant’s store.

Step 4- Install the machine’s top component and tighten knob to lock it onto the top end of the axle.

Slide the top component down onto the top end of the axle.  The top component is the part of the machine that holds the ball unit in place.  It has the Hurricane decal on both sides.  Put an adjustment knob into it and tighten the knob securing the top component onto the axle.

Step 5- Install the hook-bar and tighten the knob to secure it.

The hook-bar has three hooks on it.  It serves as the machines bottom connection for the powerbands.  Slide the hook-bar onto the square receiver extending from the back of your support column.  The hooks should be on top.  Tighten the knob to secure it.  Line up the top component over the hook-bar, so the hook is directly over the bottom three hooks of the hook-bar.

Step 6- Install Powerbands – Adjust length if necessary.

The powerbands are the black bungee cords with black plastic balls.  The plastic balls connect to the machine using the hooks on the machines top component and the hook-bar.  The powerband end with the rubber protective sleeve goes up.  Powerbands are always connected to the bottom hook first and then attached to the top component.  Start with one Powerband on the machine.


Step 7- Installing “Ball Unit” or “Impact Head” into the machine’s top component.

The square end of the ball unit slides into the top component and locks securely into place.                                                      Make sure that the two drilled holes are facing upward when you slide the square shape into the top component so the holes are perfectly aligned.  Tighten both top component knobs into place.  Pull on the unit to make sure that it is tightly locked into place.

Step 8- Anchoring your machine during use.

Before setting your machine up for use, choose a location indoors or outdoors that has sufficient space to allow an adequate “24 ft. Safety Zone” during use.  To anchor your machine on a hard surface, indoors or outdoors, use sandbags filled with sand.  Outdoors you should use the Hurricane Machine’s ground pins.  The ground pins are inserted through the holes in each leg of the machine.  You may have to use a hammer to “drive” the ground pins into the ground if the ground is hard.  Using sand bags and ground pins prevents your machine from moving during use.  Once your machine has the sandbags or ground pins in place, the machine is ready for use.
