Fill the fuel tank with clean, fresh, unleaded grade automotive gasoline. SAE viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature. Although multi-viscosity oils (5w3g, lOW30, etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32 degrees.

Before you add gasoline, stop the engine and let the engine cool for several minutes. NOTE: The cutting blade speed is controlled by the engine speed. To reduce the cutting blade speed, decrease the engine speed. To increase the cutting blade speed, increase the engine speed. 3. Make sure the spark plug wire is connected to the spark plug. 4. Pull the engine stop lever back to the ENGAGED position. Hold the engine stop lever against the handle. _b 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. Avoid the muffler and surrounding areas. Temperatures can exceed 150 degrees. 5. Move the throttle control lever to the FAST position. 6. When starting a cold engine, push the primer button five times. Wait approximately two seconds between each push. See Figure 10. F_001101M 12 OPERATION EDGING TIPS • Edging is best performed when conditions are dry. If the soil is to wet, dirt becomes packed around the blade causing premature belt wear and decreased performance. • If dirt does become packed around the blade, stop the engine and remove the wire from the spark plug. Remove the packed dirt and debris from the blade. • For deep edging, first cut at shallow depths. Then, cut at greater depths until the desired depth is obtained. • For uniform edging, make sure the blade guide rides on the surface. • Edging can be customized by varying the number of passes and by the distance the blade is from the surface. Manual. Know location and WARNING: Read the Owner's functions of all controls. Keep all safety devices and shields in place. Never allow children or uninstructed adults to operate the Edger. Shut off engine before unclogging blade or making repairs. Keep bystanders away from machine. Keep away from the blade all rotating parts, which cause injury.

Put the Edger in a building that has good ventilation. Change the engine oil. See "How To Change The Engine Oil" in the Maintenance section. Cover the Edger with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Lubricate the piston/cylinder area. This can be done by first removing the spark plug and squirting a small amount of clean engine oil into the spark plug hole. Then, cover the spark plug hole with a rag to absorb oil spray. Next, rotate the engine by pulling the starter two or three times. Finally, install the spark plug and attach the spark plug wire. IMPORTANT: Never cover the Edger while the engine and exhaust areas are still warm. NOTE: A yearly checkup or tune-up by a Sears Service Center is a good way to make sure that your Edger will provide maximum performance for the next season. Store the Edger in the operating position with the wheels down. If the Edger is stored in any other position, oil from the crankcase will enter the cylinder and cause a service problem.
