OPERATE YOUR UNIT SAFELY
WARNING: Stop the engine before
opening the vacuum inlet door. The engine
must be stopped and the impeller blades no
longer turning to avoid serious injury from the
rotating blades.
D Inspect unit before each use for worn,
loose, missing, or damaged parts. Do not
use until unit is in proper working order.
D Keep outside surfaces free of oil and fuel.
D Never start or run engine inside a closed
room, building or other unventilated area.

SPECIAL NOTICE: Exposure to vibrations through prolonged use of gasoline powered hand tools could cause blood vessel or
nerve damage in the fingers, hands, and
joints of people prone to circulation disorders
or abnormal swelling. Prolonged use in cold
weather has been linked to blood vessel damage in otherwise healthy people. If symptoms
occur such as numbness, pain, loss of
strength, change in skin color or texture, or
loss of feeling in the fingers, hands, or joints,
discontinue the use of this tool and seek
medical attention. An antivibration system
does not guarantee the avoidance of these
problems. Users who operate power tools on
a continual and regular basis must monitor
closely their physical condition and the condition of this tool.

S To reduce the risk of hearing loss
associated with sound level(s), hearing
protection is required.
S To reduce the risk of injury associated with
contacting rotating parts, stop the engine before installing or removing attachments. Do
not operate without guard(s) in place.
S Operate power equipment only at reasonable
hours--not early in the morning or late at night
when people might be disturbed. Comply with
times listed in local ordinances. Usual recommendations are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday though Saturday.
S To reduce noise levels, limit the number of
pieces of equipment used at any one time.
S To reduce noise levels, operate power
blowers at the lowest possible throttle
speed to do the job.
-- 4 --
S Use rakes and brooms to loosen debris before blowing.
S In dusty conditions, slightly dampen surfaces or use a mister attachment when water is available.
S Conserve water by using power blowers
instead of hoses for many lawn and garden
applications, including areas such as gutters,
screens, patios, grills, porches, and gardens.
S Watch out for children, pets, open windows,
or freshly washed cars. Blow debris away
safely.
S Use the full blower nozzle extension so the
air stream can work close to the ground.
S After using blowers and other equipment,
CLEAN UP! Dispose of debris in trash receptacles.
FUELING
WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly
when refueling.
This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline. 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 of oil with 1
gallon of unleaded gasoline). When mixing
fuel follow the instructions printed on the
container. Always read and follow the safety
rules under HANDLE FUEL WITH
CAUTION.
STARTING POSITION
WARNING: When starting engine,
hold the unit as illustrated. Do not set unit on any
surface except a clean, hard area when starting
engine or while engine is running. Debris such
as gravel, sand, dust, grass, etc. could be
picked up by the air intake and thrown out
through the discharge opening, damaging the
unit or property, or causing serious injury to bystanders or the operator.

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.
