    I was talking to another cleaner today as I was finishing at a house today. He told me that I was starting up and shutting off my machine wrong.

    I start up without the vacuum hose connected, with the machine at low idle. I throttle up and connect the vacuum hose to the waste tank.

    I shut down in reverse of start up and bring the machine down to low idle for a bit before turning the engine off.

    He said that I should leave my machine at full throttle at all times. Start up and shut off without the vacuum hose connected, but never lower the throttle.

    Is one way better? Why?
