Personal Condition and Safety Equipment
Users of this product risk injury to themselves and others if the
unit is used improperly and/or safety precautions are not
followed. Proper clothing and safety gear must be worn when
operating unit.
Physical Condition
Your judgment and physical dexterity may not be good:
• If you are tired or sick.
• If you are taking medication.

SAFETY
• If you have taken alcohol or drugs.
Operate unit only if you are physically and mentally well.
Eye Protection
◆
◆
Eye protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 or CE requirements
must be worn whenever you operate the unit.
For additional safety, a full-face shield may be worn over
safety glasses or goggles to provide protection from sharp
branches or flying debris.
Hand Protection
Wear sturdy, no-slip, rubber work gloves to improve your grip on the
handles. Gloves also provide protection against cuts and scratches, cold
environments, and reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your
hands.
Hearing/Ear Protection
ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection whenever unit is used.
Breathing Protection
Operators who are sensitive to dust or other common airborne allergens
may need to wear a dust mask to prevent inhaling these materials while
operating unit. Dust masks can provide protection against dust, plant debris,
and other plant matter such as pollen. Make sure the mask does not impair
your vision, and replace the mask as needed to prevent air restrictions.
Proper Clothing
Wear snug-fitting, durable clothing:
• Pants should have long legs, shirts should have long sleeves.
• DO NOT WEAR SHORTS.
• DO NOT WEAR TIES, SCARVES, JEWELRY, or clothing with loose or
hanging items that could become entangled in moving parts or
surrounding growth.
• Keep clothing buttoned or zipped, and keep shirt tails tucked in.
Wear sturdy work shoes with nonskid rubber soles:
• DO NOT WEAR OPEN TOED SHOES.

SAFETY
99944200490
• DO NOT OPERATE UNIT BAREFOOTED.
Keep long hair away from engine and air intake. Retain hair with cap or net.
Heavy protective clothing can increase operator fatigue, which may lead to
heat stroke. Schedule heavy work for early morning or late afternoon hours
when temperatures are cooler.
The components of this machine generate an electromagnetic
field during operation, which may interfere with some
pacemakers. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury,
persons with pacemakers should consult with their physician
and the pacemaker manufacturer before operating this
machine. In the absence of such information, ECHO does not
recommend the use of this machine by anyone who has a
pacemaker.
Extended Operation / Extreme Conditions
Prolonged exposure to cold and/or vibration may result in
injury. Read and follow all safety and operation instructions to
minimize risk of injury. Failure to follow instructions may result
in painful wrist/hand/arm injuries.
It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects
the fingers of certain individuals, may be brought about by exposure to
vibration and cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling and
burning sensations, followed by loss of color and numbness in the fingers.
The following precautions are strongly recommended, because the
minimum exposure, which might trigger the ailment, is unknown.

SAFETY
• Keep your body warm, especially the
head, neck, feet, ankles, hands, and
wrists.
• Maintain good blood circulation by
performing vigorous arm exercises
during frequent work breaks, and also
by not smoking.
• Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill
each day with jobs where operating the
unit or other hand-held power
equipment is not required.
• If you experience discomfort, redness,
and swelling of the fingers followed by whitening and loss of feeling,
consult your physician before further exposing yourself to cold and
vibration.
Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
It is believed that overusing the muscles
and tendons of the fingers, hands, arms,
and shoulders may cause soreness,
swelling, numbness, weakness, and
extreme pain in those areas. Certain
repetitive hand activities may put you at a
high risk for developing a Repetitive
Stress Injury (RSI). An extreme RSI
condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
(CTS), which could occur when your wrist
swells and squeezes a vital nerve that
runs through the area. Some believe that
prolonged exposure to vibration may
contribute to CTS. CTS can cause severe
pain for months or even years.
To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following:
• Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended, or twisted position. Instead try
to maintain a straight wrist position. Also, when grasping, use your whole
hand, not just the thumb and index finger.
• Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest your hands.
• Reduce the speed and force with which you do the repetitive movement.
• Do exercises to strengthen the hand and arm muscles.

SAFETY
99944200490
• Immediately stop using all power equipment and consult a doctor if you
feel tingling, numbness, or pain in the fingers, hands, wrists, or arms. The
sooner RSI/CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent nerve and
muscle damage can be prevented.
All over head electrical conductors and communications wires
can have electricity flow with high voltages. This unit is not
insulated against electrical current. Never touch wires directly
or indirectly, otherwise serious injury or death may result.
Do not operate this product indoors or in inadequately
ventilated areas. Engine exhaust contains poisonous emissions
and can cause serious injury or death.
Read the Manuals
• Provide all users of this equipment with the Operator’s Manual and Safety
Manual for instructions on Safe Operation.
Clear the Work Area
• Spectators and fellow workers must be warned, and children and animals
prevented from coming nearer than 15 m (50 ft.) while the unit is in use.
• Take wind conditions into account: avoid open doors and windows.
• Do not point blower at people or animals.
• Review area to be cleared. Look for potential hazards such as stones or
metal objects.
Keep a Firm Grip
• Always hold throttle handle and support handle with thumbs and fingers
tightly encircling the handles.
Keep a Solid Stance
• Maintain footing and balance at all times. Do not stand on slippery,
uneven or unstable surfaces. Do not work in odd positions or on ladders.
Do not over reach.

housing and attachment bearing
housing may become very hot, too
hot to touch. Avoid contact during

Operating Blower
Moving parts can amputate fingers or cause severe injuries.
Keep hands, clothing and loose objects away from all openings.
Always stop engine, disconnect spark plug, and make sure all
moving parts have come to a complete stop before removing
obstructions, clearing debris, or servicing unit. Blower housing
may contain shredder blades and other sharp edges that can
cause serious injuries if touched, even if engine is off and
blades are not moving. Wear gloves to protect hands from sharp
edges and hot surfaces.

OPERATION
Always wear safety glasses, hearing protection and a face filter
mask or serious personal injury may result. Do not point the
blower pipe in the direction of people or pets.
Use reduced speed only when
performing light-duty tasks or to
comply with local noise regulations.
Continuous low speed operation may
allow fuel/oil residue to build-up on
the piston and cause rapid build-up of
carbon on the spark arrestor screen,
resulting in overheating and engine
damage. To reduce harmful build-up,
run engine at wide open throttle for at
least 5 minutes every hour, and
inspect/clean the spark arrestor
screen after approximately 40 hours of operation.
Read the Safety Section carefully.
To avoid engine damage due to over-revving, do
not block blower pipe.
1.
Use only during appropriate hours.
2.
Allow the engine to warm up at a fast idle for a
few minutes.
3.
Use lower speed to blow debris from hard
surfaces.
4.
Additional speed may be necessary to clean debris, snow, etc. from
lawns and flowerbeds.
Note: Never use a higher speed setting than necessary to perform a
task. Remember, the higher the engine speed, the louder the
blower noise. Minimize dust by using blower at lower speeds.
Keep debris on your property. Be Smart - be a good neighbor.
