fuel and cheMical warninG  
Gasoline engine exhaust and some of  
its constituents, and some dust  
created by power sanding, sawing,  
grinding, drilling and other  
construction activities contain  
chemicals know to cause cancer, birth  
defectsand other reproductive harm.  
Someexamplesofthesechemicalsare:  
!Lead from lead-based paints  
!Crystalline silica from bricks  
! Cement and other masonry products  
! Arsenic and chromium from chemically  
treated lumber  
Your risk from these exposures varies,  
depending on how often you do this  
type of work. To reduce your exposure  
to these chemicals: ALWAYS work in a  
well-ventilated area, and work with  
approved safety equipment, such as  
dust masks that are specially designed  
to filter out microscopic particles.

WARNING WARNING  
SILICOSIS WARNING  
RESPIRATORY HAZARDS  
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and  
other materials with silica in their composition may give  
off dust or mists containing crystalline silica. Silica is a  
basic component of sand, quartz, brick clay, granite and  
numerous other minerals and rocks. Repeated and/or  
substantial inhalation of airborne crystalline silica can  
cause serious or fatal respiratory diseases, including  
silicosis. In addition, California and some other  
authorities have listed respirable crystalline silica as a  
substance known to cause cancer. When cutting such  
materials, always follow the respiratory precautions  
mentioned above.  
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and  
other materials can generate dust, mists and fumes  
containing chemicals known to cause serious or fatal  
injury or illness, such as respiratory disease, cancer,  
birth defects or other reproductive harm. If you are  
unfamiliar with the risks associated with the particular  
process and/or material being cut or the composition of  
the tool being used, review the material safety data  
sheet and/or consult your employer, the material  
manufacturer/supplier, governmental agencies such as  
OSHA and NIOSH and other sources on hazardous  
materials. California and some other authorities, for  
instance, have published lists of substances known to  
cause cancer, reproductive toxicity, or other harmful  
effects.  
Control dust, mist and fumes at the source where  
possible. In this regard use good work practices and  
follow the recommendations of the manufacturers or  
suppliers, OSHA/NIOSH, and occupational and trade  
associations. Water should be used for dust  
suppression when wet cutting is feasible. When the  
hazards from inhalation of dust, mists and fumes cannot  
be eliminated, the operator and any bystanders should  
always wear a respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for  
the materials being used.

General infOrMatiOn  
engine Care  
geneRaL  
For care and operation of the Honda engine, refer to the  
maintenance procedures in this manual and the engine  
manufacturer’s operating instructions furnished with the  
engine. We recommend draining and refilling the engine  
crankcase at least every thirty hours of operation. Check  
the engine oil level daily.  
The MQ Model WM45HCE plaster and mortar mixer is  
shipped completely assembled and has been factory tested.  
The drum batch capacity of this mixers is between 1.5 and  
2.5 bags. With proper care it will give continuous service  
year after year.  
This mixer is powered by a Honda GX160 gasoline engine.  
The shaft of the engine is attached to a main gear via a  
pinion gear. As the main gear rotates it causes the paddle  
shaft to rotate.  
Before Starting  
Before starting the engine, read the engine owner's manual  
and thoroughly understand the safety information.  
Check the items listed below:  
Oil Levels  
Be sure to check the oil levels in the engine and engine  
reduction unit before starting the unit (gasoline model only).  
Hardware  
Check all hardware on the mixer before starting.Periodically  
inspect all hardware. Loose hardware can contribute to  
early component failure and poor performance. Use the  
torque chart below as a general guideline and keep all  
hardware tight:

Figure 2 illustrates the basic components and controls of  
the WM45HCE mixer.  
6. engine Cover — Lift this cover to gain access to the  
engine compartment.  
1. Lifting Handle Bars — Use these handle bars to lift  
and maneuver the mixer.  
7. Lifting Handle Bars (engine Side) — Use these  
fold-down handle bars to lift and maneuver the mixer.  
2. pivot point/Zerk Fitting — There is, on each end of  
the mixing drum a zerk grease fitting. These fittings  
lubricate the dumping mechanism. Lubricate both  
fittings at least twice a week.  
8. engine On/OFF Switch — Pull switch outward to start  
engine. Push inward to stop engine.  
3. Safety grill — Provided for operator safety.This safety  
grill is designed to keep hands and solid objects out of  
the mixing drum when in use.This grill should be closed  
at all times when mixer is in use. dO nOT remove the  
grill or grill opening bar.Keep the grill clean by washing  
it down daily.  
9. Tires — Replace tires with the recommended type  
tire of 12 x 3.  
10. Chock Blocks — Place these blocks (not included  
as part of the mixer package) under each mixer wheel  
to prevent rolling.  
4. Mixing paddles — Used in the mixing of material.  
This unit uses four different types of paddles to provide  
a fast uniform mix.  
11. Steel Mixingdrum — Mixing materials such as mortar,  
plaster are to be placed into this drum for mixing.  
Always clean the drum after each use  
5. Bag Cutter — This feature allows compound mixing  
bags to be opened easily, therefore allowing the  
contents of the bag to fall directly into the mixing drum.  
12. dump Handle — Pull this handle downward to dump  
the contents of the drum. Push the handle upward to  
return the drum to its vertical position.
