Loose wire on Fradan walk behind leaf blower

Does anyone know what this wire is for or where the other end might be? I just bought this unit used (and it runs great), but I can't figure out why there's a loose wire.

I checked their website (http://www.fradanpower.com/PDFs/PB5....ed%20Views.pdf) and couldn't find any mention of these wires.

Thanks!

Knowing what it is would help... What engine is on it?

It's a Briggs & Stratton. Not sure about a kill switch. I'll grab some better pics this weekend.

Here are some more pics. I still can't figure out what model I have... I checked against the Fradan site and have no idea what I have. It's 8HP and Briggs (309cc), but nothing matches what I found on page 4 of this: http://www.fradanpower.com/PDFs/Clas...ner-Manual.pdf

That engine model and type number shows it to be an electric start model and that would be the alternator wire. It should go to a voltage regulator if the electric start is used in this application. If not, leave it hanging there like it is.

Hmm. Didn't realize it had an electric start (I only used the pull start). So it's ok to just leave it hanging?

Also, can anyone figure out what model Fradan this is?

Thanks again!
