Select the oil's SAE viscosity your expected grade according to operating temperature: Co_der << _ >>Warmer << _ 5W30 NOTE: -- >> SAE30 Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30, etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil. TO ADD ENGINE OIL • Place the Edger on a level surface. • Remove the oil fill cap as shown in next figure. • Fill the engine crankcase, pouring slowly. DO NOT OVERFILL. For approximate capacity see PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS on page 10 of this manual, • Reinstall the oil fill cap and tighten securely, Wipe away excess oil, • Check oil before each use, Add if needed. • Change oil every 25 operating hours thereafter, operate on regular unleaded gasoline. Include the following emission control system(s): EM, TWC (if so equipped). Include any user adjustables features therefore no other adjustments are needed. Fill the fuel tank with clean, fresh, unleaded premium or reformulated automotive gasoline only. DO NOT use leaded gasoline. Be sure that the container you pour the gasoline from is clean and free from dust or other foreign particles. Never use gasoline that may be stale from long periods of storage in the container. Reinstall fuel cap. Z_WARNING: Experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using 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, the fuel system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer. Drain fuel tank, start engine and let it run until fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage Instructions for additional information. Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur. WARNING: Gasoline is flammable and caution must be used when handling or storing it. Do not fill fuel tank while Edger is running, hot, or when Edger is in an enclosed area. Keep away from open flame, electrical spark, and do not smoke while _ling the fuel tank. Never fill fuel tank completely; but fill the tank to within 1/4-1/2 inch from the top to provide space for expansion of fuel. Always fill fuel tank outdoors and use a funnel or spout to prevent spilling. Make sure to wipe up any spilled fuel before starting the engine. Store gasoline in a clean, approved container, and keep the cap in place on the container. Keep gasoline in a cool, well ventilated place; never in the house. Never buy more than a 30 day supply of gasoline to ensure volatility. Gasoline is intended to be used as a fuel for internal combustion engines; therefore, do not use gasoline for any other purpose. Since many children like the smell of gasoline, keep it out of their reach because the fumes are dangerous to inhale, as well as being explosive. TO START THE ENGINE Before starting the engine, be sure you have read and understood all the instructions on the preceding pages. The Edger is equipped with a recoil starter. The operation of the engine is controlled by the throttle control lever. See page 6. • Push the depth control lever forward and latch in the forward slot of the adjustment bracket to raise the blade. • Move the throttle control lever, see figure on page 6, to the FAST'_ position.

DO NOT allow the starter rope to snap back, let it rewind slowly while holding the starter handle. NOTE: If engine fails to start after three pulls, push primer button two times and pull starter rope again. • When the engine starts, run at fu!l engine speed during normal use. NOTE: The cutting blade speed is controlled by the engine speed. To reduce the cutting blade speed, push back on the throttle control lever. To increase the blade speed, push the throttle control lever forward. • To stop I_ the engine, make sure the depth control lever is all the way forward and release the engine control lever to the stop position or pu=sh the throttle control lever to stop IO. See figure on page 6. ,_ WARNING: Never run the engine indoors or in a poorly ventilated area. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas. Keep hands, feet, hair and loose clothing away from any moving parts on the engine or Edger. Avoid the muffler and surrounding areas. Temperatures may exceed 150 ° F. EDGING TIPS • Edging is best performed when conditions are dry. If the soil is too wet, dirt becomes packed in and around the blade causing premature belt wear and decreased performance. • If dirt does become packed around the blade, stop the engine, remove the spark plug wire, and remove the packed debris before continuing to edge. • If very deep edging is required, we recommend that a shallow cut be made first, then cuts at greater depth until the desired depth is obtained. • Uniform edging can be performed when the blade guide (see figure on page 6 for location) rides on and against the surface which you are edging. • Edging can be customized by varying the number of passes and by the distance your blade is from the surface you are edging.
