How to run a grain vac?

I just purchased a Handleair 560 grain vac, and I am wondering how to run it? I figured the airlock and pump out, but whats the proper way to run it? I seen on the airlock shaft it said something about not going faster than 60 rpm's? I don't have a vacuum gauge on it so I don't know what it is doing as far as a vacuum point of view. I really probably need a manual to tell me what to set it to. I had moved some soybeans with it, and I have the suction end that is a wide end to clean up the floor. Also there is a little slide door on the suction pipe by the flat head, what does that do? Also when I was moving the grain I stuck the end in the grain and the grain buried the suction end and the spot where the grain comes out on the vac it start moving the vac up and down like it was getting plugged, then I took the end back out of the grain and it quick bouncing. What would cause something like that? Anybody know what I am talking about? Or can anybody help me figure out how to run one of these things? Thanks!
