SPECIAL NOTICE: This unit is equipped
with a temperature limiting muffler and spark
arresting screen which meets the requirements of California Codes 4442 and 4443. All
U.S. forest land and the states of California,
Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington require by law that
many internal combustion engines be
equippedwith a spark arresting screen. If you
operatein a locale where such regulations exist, you are legally responsible for maintaining
the operating condition of these parts. Failure

OPERATION
KNOW YOUR HEDGE TRIMMER
READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL AND SAFETY RULES BEFORE OPERATING YOUR
UNIT. Compare the illustrations with your unit to familiarize yourself with the location of the various controls and adjustments. Save this manual for future reference.

Fuel Mix Fill Cap
ON/OFF SWITCH
PRIMER BULB
The ON/OFF SWITCH is used to stop the engine. To stop engine, move switch to OFF.
The PRIMER BULB removes air from the carburetor and fuel lines and fills them with fuel.
This allows you to start the engine with fewer
pulls on the starter rope. Activate the primer
bulb by pressing it and allowing it to return to
its original position.
CHOKE
The CHOKE helps to supply fuel to the engine
to aid in cold starting. Activate the choke by
moving choke lever to the desired position. See
STARTING YOUR ENGINE for complete starting information.
WARNING: Muffler is very hot during
and after use. Do not touch the muffler or allow combustible material such as dry grass or
fuel to do so.
BEFORE STARTING ENGINE
WARNING: Be sure to read the fuel
information in the safety rules before you begin. If you do not understand the safety rules,
do not attempt to fuel your unit. Call
1-800-554-6723.
FUELING ENGINE
WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly
when refueling.
This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic
2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a ratio of 40:1. Poulan/Weed Eater
brand synthetic oil is recommended. A 40:1
ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces (95 ml)
of oil with 1 gallon (4 liters) of unleaded gasoline). DO NOT USE automotive oil or boat oil.
These oils will cause engine damage. When
mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on oil
container. Once oil is added to gasoline,
shake container momentarily to assure that
the fuel is thoroughly mixed. Always read and
follow the safety rules listed under HANDLE
FUEL WITH CAUTION.
THROTTLE TRIGGER
The THROTTLE TRIGGER controls engine
speed. Squeeze the trigger for full speed operation; release it for idle speed.
IMPORTANT
Experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels
(called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol)
can attract moisture which leads to separation
and formation of acids during storage. Acidic
gas can damage the fuel system of an engine
while in storage. To avoid engine problems,
empty the fuel system before storage for 30
days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage
may occur.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
It is recommended that the engine not be
operated for longer than 30 seconds at full
throttle. Releasing the trigger and allowing
the engine to briefly return to idle speed (5 -10 seconds) will be sufficient.
IMPORTANT POINTS
S Use the minimum throttle speed necessary
to effectively cut hedges for optimal hedge
trimmer performance.
S Never attempt to use this hedge trimmer to
cut hedges that have any branches with a
diameter larger than 7/16".

STARTING A FLOODED ENGINE
Cleaning the air filter:
Flooded engines can be started by placing
the ON/OFF switch in the ON position and the
choke lever in the OFF CHOKE position and
engaging the throttle lock as directed in the
STARTING A COLD ENGINE section; then,
pull the rope to clear the engine of excess
fuel. Starting could require pulling the starter
rope many times depending on how badly the
unit is flooded. If the unit still doesn’t start, refer
to the TROUBLESHOOTING TABLE or call
1-800-554-6723.
A dirty air filter decreases engine performance and increases fuel consumption and
harmful emissions. Always clean after every
5 hours of operation.
S Clean the cover and the area around it to
keep debris from falling into the carburetor
chamber when the cover is removed.
S Remove parts as illustrated.
NOTE: Do not clean filter in gasoline or other
flammable solvent. Doing so can create a fire
hazard or produce harmful evaporative emissions.
S Wash the filter in soap and water.
S Allow filter to dry.
S Add a few drops of oil to the filter; squeeze
filter to distribute oil.
S Replace parts.
