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.
SPECIAL NOTICE: For users on U.S. Forest Land and in some states, including California (Public Resources Codes 4442 and
4443), Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey,
Oregon, and Washington: Certain internal
combustion engines operated on forest,
brush, and/or grass covered land in the above
areas are required to be equipped with a
spark arresting screen, maintained in effective working order, or the engine must be constructed, equipped, and maintained for the
prevention of fire. Check with your state or local authorities for regulations pertaining to
these requirements. Failure to follow these
requirements is a violation of the law. This unit
is not factory equipped with a spark arresting
screen; however, a spark arresting screen is
available as an optional part. If a spark arresting screen is required in your area, contact
your authorized service dealer for the correct
kit. The spark arresting screen, blower tubes,
and nozzles must be assembled to unit to be
in full compliance with regulations.
ASSEMBLY
WARNING: Stop engine and be sure
the impeller blades have stopped turning before opening the vacuum inlet door or attempting to insert or remove the vacuum or
blower tubes. The rotating blades can cause
serious injury. Always disconnect the spark
plug before performing maintenance or accessing movable parts.

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. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio
of 40:1. 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 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 relating to fuel before fueling your
unit.

Protection

Vacuum
OPERATING TIPS
S While vacuuming or blowing debris, hold
the unit with the muffler side facing away
from your body and clothes (see OPERATING POSITION illustration above).
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.
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.
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.
NOTE: Unit must be placed on its side when
adding fuel (see illustration below).
TO STOP THE ENGINE
To stop the engine, move the throttle lever
to the STOP position.

air filter after every 5 hours of operation or
yearly, whichever comes first.
1. Clean the cover and the area around it to
keep debris from falling into the carburetor
chamber when the cover is removed.
2. 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.
3. Wash the filter in soap and water.
4. Allow filter to dry.
5. Apply a few drops of oil to the filter;
squeeze filter to distribute oil.
6. Replace parts.
REPLACE SPARK PLUG
Replace spark plug each year to ensure the
engine starts easier and runs better. Set
spark plug gap at 0.025 inch. Ignition timing is
fixed, nonadjustable.
1. Twist, then pull off spark plug boot.
2. Remove spark plug from cylinder and discard.
3. Replace with Champion RCJ-6Y spark
plug and tighten securely with a 3/4 inch
socket wrench.
