FUEL
WARNING
• Gasoline is very flammable. Avoid smoking or bringing any
flame or sparks near fuel. Make sure to stop the engine and
allow it cool before refueling the unit. Select outdoor bare
ground for fueling and move at least 10 ft (3 m) away from
the fueling point before starting the engine.
■ GASOLINE REQUIREMENTS
• All 2-Stroke RedMax Products are powered by RedMax
Professional-Commercial Duty, Hi-Performance, Hi-RPM, Air
Cooled 2-Stroke engines.
RedMax – Hi-Performance 2-stroke engines produce higher HP
outputs as compared to standard Home Owner Duty or Light
Commercial Duty production engines offered by most
manufacturers.
• Exhaust emission are controlled by the fundamental engine
parameters and components (eq., carburation, ignition timing
and port timing) without addition of any major hardware or the
introduction of an inert material during combustion.
• The RedMax Engines are registered and certified with CARB
(California Air Resources Board) and EPA (Environmental
Protection Agency) to operate on CLEAN Mid-grade 89 octane
or Premium, unleaded (lead-free) gasoline and RedMax AirCooled "Max Life", Synthetic blend Premium two-stroke engine
oil mixed at 50:1 ratio.
• Unleaded gasoline is recommended to reduce the
contamination of the air for the sake of your health and the
environment.
• This Hi-Performance Air Cooled 2-stroke Engine requires the
use of Minimum 89 Octane [ R+M ] (Mid grade or Premium)
2
clean gasoline. Gasoline may contain maximum of 10% Ethanol
(grain alcohol) or up to 15% MTBE (Methyl tertiary-butyl ether).
Gasoline containing Methanol (Wood Alcohol) is NOT
approved.
NOTE
• Failures caused by operating engines on gasoline with octane
rating lower than 89 are not covered by the RedMax TwoStroke engine warranty.
WARNING
• Alternative Fuels (Not Gasoline)
Alternative fuels, such as E-15 (15% ethanol), E-20 (20%
ethanol), E-85 (85% ethanol) are NOT classified as gasoline
and are NOT approved for use in RedMax 2-stroke gasoline
engines. Use of alternative fuels will cause major engine
performance and durability problems such as: improper
clutch engagements, overheating, vapor lock, power loss,
lubrication deficiency, deterioration of fuel lines, gaskets
and internal carburetor components, etc... Alternative fuels
cause high moisture absorption into the fuel/oil mixture
leading to oil and fuel separation.
■ OIL REQUIREMENTS
• Use only RedMax "Max Life", Synthetic blend Premium AirCooled two-stroke engine oil or oil certified to ISO-L-EGD
(ISO/CD1378) standard AND one that is JASO-FD registered.
RedMax Air-Cooled "Max Life", Synthetic blend Premium two
stroke engine oil and ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD1378) AND JASO-FD
oils are fully compatible with gasoline's containing 10% Ethanol.
RedMax Air-Cooled "Max Life", Synthetic blend Premium two
stroke engine oil and ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD1378) AND JASO-FD
oils are Universal and should be mixed at 50:1 ratio for all 2
stroke air cooled engines sold in the past regardless of mixing
ratios specified in those manuals.
• If the oil is registered with JASO, the JASO Logo with FD and
registration number will be displayed on the container. The
highest JASO rating is "FD", which equals the ISO-L-EGD
rating. Lower ratings are "FC", "FB", and "FA".
NOTE
• IF octane rating of the Mid Grade gasoline in your area is lower
than 89 Octane use Premium Unleaded Gasoline. The majority
of all 2-stroke engine manufacturers in the USA and Canada
recommend using gasoline with 89 Octane or higher.
WARNING
• Gasoline with an octane rating lower than 89 will greatly
increase the engines operating temperature. Low octane
gasoline will cause detonation (knock) resulting in piston
seizures and major internal engine components damage.
• Poor quality gasolines or oils may damage sealing rings, fuel
• Engine problems due to inadequate lubrication caused by
failure to use ISO-L-EGD certified and JASO FD registered oil
such as "MaxLife", RedMax Synthetic blend Premium 2-stroke
oil WILL VOID THE REDMAX TWO-STROKE ENGINE
WARRANTY.
WARNING
• Do not use NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers
Association), BIA (Boating Industry Association), and TCW (two
cycle water cooled) oils designed for MoPeds or Outboard,
water cooled Marine Engines. Do not use API (American
Petroleum Institute), TC (Two Cycle) labeled oils. The API-TC

7. Fuel
test standard has been discontinued by API in 1995 and it no
longer exists.
IMPORTANT
• Gasoline/Oil mixture Storage Recommendations
Store your gasoline or gasoline/oil mixture in a cool dry area in
a tightly sealed approved container to limit the entry of moisture
and additional air (oxygen). Moisture and air cause the
development of varnish and gum, making the fuel stale. Stored
gasoline and gasoline/oil mixture ages and loses its octane
rating and volatility. Do not mix more gasoline/oil than you
intend to use in 30 days, and 60 days when fuel stabilizer is
added. RedMax Air-Cooled "Max Life" Synthetic blend
Premium two-stroke engine oil "Contains fuel stabilizer" and
will automatically extend your gasoline/oil mixture life up to 60
days.
■ HOW TO MIX FUEL
RECOMMENDED MIXING RATIO
GASOLINE 50 : OIL 1
(when using RedMax Air-Cooled "Max
Life")
50:1 MIXING CHART
1. Select flat and bare ground for fueling.
2. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from the fueling point
before starting the engine.
3. Stop the engine before refueling the unit. At that time, be
sure to sufficiently agitate the mixed gasoline in the
container.
■ FOR YOUR ENGINE LIFE, AVOID
1. FUEL WITH NO OIL (RAW GASOLINE) – It will cause severe
damage to the internal engine parts very quickly.
2. GASOHOL – It can cause deterioration of rubber and/or plastic
parts and disruption of engine lubrication.
3. OIL FOR 4-CYCLE ENGINE USE – It can cause spark plug
fouling, exhaust port blocking, or piston ring seizure.
4. Mixed fuels which have been left unused for a period of
one month or more may clog the carburetor and result in the
engine failing to operate properly.
5. In the case of storing the product for a long period of time,
clean the fuel tank after rendering it empty. Next, Start the
engine and run the carburetor dry residual fuel.
6. In the case of scrapping the used mixed oil container, scrap it

■ SPARK PLUG
• The spark plug may gather carbon
deposits on its firing end with
reasonable use. Remove and inspect
the spark plug every 25 hours and
clean the electrodes as necessary with
a wire brush. The spark gap should be
adjusted to .025 in (0.6~0.7mm).
• Plug manufacturers recommend
replacing the plug twice a year to avoid
unexpected plug failure in a job.
REPLACEMENT PLUG IS A NGK
CMR7H.
IMPORTANT
• Note that using any spark plugs other
than those designated may result in the
engine failing to operate properly or in
the engine becoming overheated and
damaged.
• To install the spark plug, first turn the
plug until it is finger tight, then tighten it
a quarter turn more with a socket
wrench.

■ MUFFLER
(1) Screw
(2) Air inlet screen
WARNING
• Inspect periodically, the muffler for
loose fasteners, any damage or
corrosion. If any sign of exhaust
leakage is found, do not use the blower
and have it repaired immediately.
• Note that failing to do so may result
in the engine catching on fire.
F14
■ PROCEDURES TO BE PERFORMED
AFTER EVERY 50 HOURS OF USE
• Remove the muffler, insert a
screwdriver into the vent, and wipe
away any carbon buildup. Wipe away
any carbon buildup on the muffler
exhaust vent and cylinder exhaust port
at the same time.
• Tighten all screws, bolts, and fittings.
IMPORTANT
• Before starting operation, always make
sure to check if the muffler is properly
held by three bolts to the cylinder.
(Fastening Torque : 70~110 kg·cm)
• Even if one bolt out of three bolts is
loose, the muffler may get loose during
operation which may result in engine
catching on fire.
F12
■ SPARK ARRESTER
• The muffler is equipped with a spark
arrester to prevent red hot carbon from
flying out of the exhaust outlet.
Periodically inspect and clean as
necessary with a wire brush. In the
State of California it is required by law
(Section 4442 of the California Pulic
Resources Code) to equip a spark
arrester when a gas powered tool is
used in any forest covered, bush
covered, or grass covered unimproved
land.
(1) Spark Arrester
■ AIR INLET SCREEN
IMPORTANT
• Blowing air is taken in from the air inlet
screen. When air flow has dropped
down during operation, stop the engine
and inspect the air inlet screen for
blocking by obstacles.
• Note that failure to remove any such
obstacles may result in the engine
becoming overheated and damaged.
F13
WARNING
Never use the blower without the
screen at the air intake of the blower.
Before each use, check that, the screw
(1) is securely tightened and is free
from any damage.

FEDERAL AND CALIFORNIA EMISSIONS CONTROL WARRANTY
STATEMENT YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
U
S
The EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), CARB (California Air Resources Board), Environment
Canada and RedMax are pleased to explain the emissions control system's warranty on your 2009 and later
small off-road engine. In U.S. and Canada, new equipment that use small off-road engines must be designed,
built, and equipped to meet the applicable Federal or Californian stringent anti-smog standards. RedMax must
warrant the emissions control system on your small off-road engine for the period listed below provided there
has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your equipment. Your emissions control system may
include parts such as carburetor, ignition system, catalytic converter, fuel tank, filters and other associated
components. Also, included may be hoses, belts, connectors, sensors, and other emission-related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, RedMax will repair your small off-road engine at no cost to you including
diagnosis, parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY COVERAGE
This emissions control system is warranted for two years or if the product qualifies for a longer warranty period
resulting from the type of use, that period shall prevail. If any emissions-related part on your equipment is
defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by RedMax.
OWNER'S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for performance of the required maintenance listed in
your Owner's Manual. RedMax recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your small offroad engine, but RedMax cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or your failure to ensure the
performance of all scheduled maintenance. As the small off-road engine owner, you should however be aware
that the RedMax may deny you warranty coverage if your small off-road engine or a part has failed due to
abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to a RedMax distribution center or service center
as soon as the problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to
exceed 30 days. If you have any questions regarding your warranty coverage, you should contact RedMax at 1800-291-8251 or via e-mail at service@redmax.com.
WARRANTY COMMENCEMENT DATE
The warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered to an ultimate purchaser.
LENGTH OF COVERAGE
RedMax warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent owner that the engine or equipment is
designed, built, and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by EPA and CARB, and
is free from defects in materials and workmanship that causes the failure of a warranted part for a period of two
years.
WHAT IS COVERED
REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF PARTS Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty
must be performed at no charge to the owner at a warranty station. Warranty services or repairs will be provided
at all RedMax distribution centers that are franchised to service the subject engines. Throughout the emissions
warranty period of two years, RedMax must maintain a supply of warranted parts sufficient to meet the expected
demand for such parts.
WARRANTY PERIOD Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required in the maintenance
schedule, is warranted for the period of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. If the
part fails prior to the first scheduled replacement, the part will be repaired or replaced by RedMax at no cost.
Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty is warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first
scheduled replacement point for the part. Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required
in the maintenance schedule, is warranted for two years or if the product qualifies for a longer warranty period
resulting from the type of use, that period shall prevail. If any such part fails during the period of warranty
coverage, it will be repaired and replaced by RedMax at no cost. Any such part repaired or replaced under the
US-15
HBZ2610
warranty is warranted for the remaining warranty period. Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular
inspection in the maintenance schedule will be warranted for a period of two years. A statement in such written
instructions to the effect of "repair or replace as necessary" will not reduce the period of warranty coverage. Any
such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remaining warranty period.
DIAGNOSIS The owner must not be charged for diagnostic labor that leads to the determination that a
warranted part is in fact defective, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at a warranty station.
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RedMax is liable for damages to other engine components proximately caused
by a failure under warranty of any warranted part.
