Safety
This machine operates at very high speeds and has the
potential to do serious damage if misused, abused or mishandled. To reduce the risk of injury, you must maintain
control at all times, and observe all safety precautions
during operation. Never permit a person without training
or instruction to operate this machine!
NOTE:
For specific maintenance and safety information about your
Multipurpose Tool Carrier, consult the owner's manual
provided with it. If it has been lost or misplaced, contact a
Shindaiwa dealer for a replacement.
Operating Precautions
WARNING!
■■This Shindaiwa tool is specifically
designed for use on the Shindaiwa
Multipurpose Tool Carrier. Installation and/or use on any other
model, brand or type of power tool
is not approved by Shindaiwa.
Attempts to use on non-approved
models can damage the equipment and cause accidents, serious
injury or death.
■■Always make sure the Multipurpose Tool is properly installed and
firmly tightened before operation.
■■Never use a cracked or warped
cutting attachment: replace it with
a serviceable one and make sure
it fits properly.
■■Before starting the engine, make
sure the cutting attachment is not
contacting anything.
■■Always stop the engine immediately and check for damage if
you strike a foreign object or if the
machine becomes tangled. Do not
operate with broken or damaged
equipment.
■■Stop the machine immediately if
it suddenly begins to vibrate or
shake. Inspect for broken, missing or improperly installed parts or
attachments.
■■Never transport the machine or set
it down with the engine running. An
engine that’s running could be accidentally accelerated causing the
cutting attachment to rotate.
■■ALWAYS keep a Solid Stance.
Maintain footing and balance at all
times. Do not stand on slippery,
uneven or unstable surfaces. Do
not work in odd positions or on ladders. Do not over reach.
The Properly Equipped Operator
Wear hearing protection devices and a
broad-brimmed hat or helmet. A helmet
is required when using a blade-equipped
brushcutter to clear small trees.
Prolonged exposure to excessive noise
is fatiguing and could lead to impaired
hearing.
Wear close-fitting clothing to
protect legs and arms. Gloves
offer added protection and are
strongly recommended. Do not
wear clothing or jewelry that
could get caught in machinery
or underbrush. Secure long hair
so that it is above shoulder level.
NEVER wear shorts!
Long-term exposure to vibration
can damage your hands.
Keep a proper footing and do not
overreach. Maintain your balance at all
times during operation.
Wear appropriate footwear (non-skid
boots or shoes): do not wear opentoed shoes or sandals. Never work
barefooted!
Always wear eye protection such as
goggles or safety glasses to shield
against thrown objects.
Always wear a harness when operating the unit.
It adds comfort and helps ensure safety by limiting
movement fore and aft. When the harness is
adjusted properly, the unit should balance with the
cutting attachment parallel to the ground.
Always operate with both hands
firmly gripping the unit.
When operating with a blade, make sure
the handle is positioned to provide you with
maximum protection from contacting the
blade. Always make sure the handlebar
is installed in accordance with the
manufacturers instructions.
Always make sure the
appropriate cutting attachment
shield is correctly installed and
in good condition. Do not
operate the unit if the
cutting attachment shield
is missing, loose, or
broken.
Keep away from the rotating
trimmer line or blade at all
times, and never lift a moving
attachment above waist-high.

Be Aware of the Working Environment
Avoid long-term
operation in very hot
or very cold weather.
Make sure
bystanders or
observers outside
the 15 meter
(50 feet) “danger
zone” wear eye
protection.
15 METERS (50
FEET)
Be extremely careful
of slippery terrain,
especially during rainy
weather.
Always make sure
the appropriate
cutting attachment
shield is correctly
installed.
Be constantly alert for
objects and debris that
could be thrown either
from the rotating cutting
attachment or bounced
from a hard surface.
If contact is made with a hard object,
stop the engine and inspect the cutting
attachment for damage.
Reduce the risk of bystanders
being struck by flying debris. Make
sure no one is within 15 meters
(50 feet)— that’s about 16 paces
of an operating attachment. Stop
immediately if a child, pet, or
person comes within a 15 meter
(50 feet)radius. Outside this
radius, there is still a risk of injury
from thrown objects.
Do not operate the unit
if the cutting attachment
shield is missing, loose,
or broken.
Beware of a coasting
blade when brushcutting or
edging. A coasting blade
can injure while it continues
to spin after the throttle
trigger is released or after
the engine is stopped.
ALWAYS clear your work area of
trash or hidden debris that could
be thrown back at you or toward
a bystander. When operating in
rocky terrain or near electric wires
or fences, use extreme caution to
avoid contacting such items with
the cutting attachment.
Safety Labels
IMPORTANT!
Safety and Information Labels: Make sure all safety and information labels are undamaged, readable and up to date.
Immediately replace damaged or missing labels.
New labels are available through your local authorized
Shindaiwa dealer.

IMPORTANT!
Discard blades that are bent, warped, cracked, broken or damaged in any way.Use a sharp blade. A dull blade is more likely
to snag and thrust.
IMPORTANT!
Units with adjustable carburetors must be readjusted for blade use, otherwise serious engine damage can occur.
WARNING!
A standard grass trimmer unit with loop handle should NEVER be operated with blade-type attachments. For blade use,
the trimmer must be fitted with a bicycle-type handlebar or barrier bar that is located in front of the operator to reduce the
risk of the operator coming in contact with the cutting attachment. (Per ANSI B175.3). When using a blade, the unit must
be equipped with a harness or strap.
Shoulder Strap
Adjust the shoulder strap so the shoulder pad rests comfortably on the off-side
shoulder and the cutting path of the cutting attachment is parallel to the ground.
Tighten hanger screw.
WARNING!
Always wear a shoulder strap when operating this unit with a blade. A shoulder
strap is also recommended when using trimmer line.
NOTE:
Using a shoulder strap with a brush-cutter allows you to maintain proper control
of the unit and reduces fatigue during extended operation.

Using A Brushcutter Blade
WARNING!
■■Before working with a blade-equipped unit, always inspect and clean the area of objects that could interfere with or
damage the blade.
■■Never use a blade near sidewalks, fence posts, buildings or other objects that could cause injury or damage.
■■Never use a blade for purposes other than those for which it was designed.
■■Whenever you strike a hard object with a blade, always stop the brushcutter and carefully inspect the blade for damage. NEVER OPERATE THE UNIT WITH A DAMAGED BLADE!
■■A blade-equipped unit must be equipped with a bicycle-type handlebar or barrier as well as a harness or strap.
■■Always make sure the cutting attachment shield is properly installed before operating the unit.
Blade Thrust
‘Blade thrust’ is a sudden sideways or backward motion of the brushcutter. Such motion may occur when the blade jams
or catches on an object such as a sapling tree or tree stump. BE CONSTANTLY ALERT FOR BLADE THRUST AND
GUARD AGAINST ITS EFFECTS!
Barrier Bar
A brushcutter’s barrier bar helps prevent the operator from moving forward, or the unit moving rearward, thus preventing
inadvertent bodily contact with the blade. ALWAYS KEEP THE BARRIER BAR SECURELY IN PLACE ON THE UNIT!
Shoulder Strap or Harness
A shoulder strap or harness provides additional protection against blade thrust. In addition, a shoulder strap or harness
gives significant support and comfort to help ensure safe and efficient operation.
When operating a unit equipped with a blade, make sure both the handle/barrier bar and shoulder strap or harness are
adjusted to the size of the operator using the unit.
The blade rotates counter-clockwise. For best performance and to minimize being struck by debris, move the blade from
right to left while advancing on your work.
Maintenance
WARNING!
Before performing any maintenance, repair, or cleaning work on
the unit, make sure the engine and
cutting attachment are completely
stopped. Disconnect the spark plug
wire before performing service or
maintenance work.
