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
3m(10ft) away from the fueling point before
starting the engine.
• The RedMax engines are lubricated by oil
specially formulated for air-cooled 2-cycle
gasoline engine use. If RedMax oil is not
available, use an anti-oxidant added quality oil
expressly labeled for air-cooled 2-cycle engine
use.(FC GRADE OIL)

• 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.
• These engines are certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline.
• Make sure to use gasoline with a minimum
octane number of 90 ROZ(USA/Canada : pump
octane min.87)
• Unleaded gasoline is recommended to reduce
the contamination of the air for the sake of your
health and the environment.
• Poor quality gasolines or oils may damage
sealing rings, fuel lines or fuel tank of the
engine.
■ HOW TO MIX FUEL
1. Measure out the quantities of gasoline and oil to
be mixed.
2. Put some of the gasoline into a clean, approved
fuel container.
3. Pour in all of the oil and agitate well.
4. Pour in the rest of gasoline and agitate again for
at least one minute.
5. Put a clear indication on the outside of the
container to avoid mixing up with gasoline or
❲9 ❳

easy identification.
■ FUELING THE UNIT
1. Untwist and remove the fuel cap. Rest the cap
on a dustless place.
2. Put fuel into the fuel tank to 80% of the full
capacity.
3. Fasten the fuel cap securely and wipe up any
fuel spillage around the unit.
WARNING
1. Select 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.
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 or WATER
COOLED 2-CYCLE ENGINE USE – It can
cause spark plug fouling, exhaust port blocking,
or piston ring sticking.

6. Set up
IMPORTANT
• As a suction hose, be sure to use attached
suction hose(nominal diameter 25mm x 3m) or
an equivalent ‘water suction hose’ only.
• Securely connect hoses with attached hose
couplings and clumps.
• If the suction hose connection is loose, or a
packing in hose coupling has been lost or
damaged, air may be sucked into the pump and
interrupt water suction (air lock).
• A strainer shall be placed so that it does not
appear above water level nor suck bottom sand
and mud.
F1
1. Place your pump at nearby water resource
horizontally.
2. Insert attached hose couplings to the suction
hose and discharge hose and tighten them with
clumps.
3. After checking the packing of each hose
coupling, connect the suction hose to a suction
port and the discharge hose to a discharge port.
NOTE
Discharge port angle can be changed to 3 different
directions. Adjust to your operating condition.
F2
4. Submerge the suction hose strainer in the water.
5. Lay the discharge hose where necessary.
Arrange protective covers if the hose can be
disturbed by foot steps of others.
6. Remove self-suction plug and top up the pump
with water. (F1)
7. Fill up fuel tank with fuel and tighten the tank cap
securely. (F2)
❲ 11 ❳
7. Operation
WARNING
• Fuel(Gasoline) is highly flammable and
incorrect handling will cause fire accident.
Strictly avoid smoking or fire during mixing
or supplying the fuel.
• Be sure to stop the engine and allow it to be
cooled before refueling.
• Spilled fuel shall be completely wiped away
with wiping cloth, etc. before restarting the
engine.
• Do not leave any flammable object around
engine exhaust port.
WARNING
Before starting the engine, check if there is
anything that must not be wet near the discharge
hose tip. Give warning to nearby people of starting
water discharge.
IMPORTANT
• Idle operation with no water in the pump may
cause pump damage. Before starting the engine,
check if the pump is filled with selfsuction(priming) water. In case the suction
strainer comes out of the water level during
operation, immediately reduce the engine speed
and stop the operation.
• Confirm that the suction hose connection is not
too loose. Loose connection may result in no
suction water.
• In case the discharge hose is clogged or a valve
connected to the discharge hose is closed, the
pump may not suck water.
• Stepping on the discharge hose or sudden
closure of the discharge valve may create
instantaneous high pressure in the pump and
result in pump damage(Water Hammer Effect).
Arrange protective covers if the hose can be
disturbed by others stepping on, and avoid
closing the valve rapidly.
