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 anti--vibration 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: This unit is equipped
with a temperature limiting muffler and spark
arresting screen which meets the requirements of California Codes 4442 and 4443. All
U.S. forest land and the states of California,
Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington require by law that
many internal combustion engines be
equipped with a spark arresting screen. If you
operate in a locale where such regulations exist, you are legally responsible for maintaining
the operating condition of these parts. Failure
to do so is a violation of the law. For normal
homeowner use, the muffler and spark arresting screen will not require any service. After
50 hours of use, we recommend that your
muffler be serviced or replaced by an authorized service dealer.
CUTTING SAFETY
WARNING: Inspect the area before

PRIMER BULB
The CHOKE helps to supply fuel to the engine
to aid in cold starting. Activate the choke by
moving the choke lever to the FULL CHOKE
position. After the engine attempts to start, move
the choke lever to the HALF CHOKE position.
Once engine has started, move the choke lever
to the OFF CHOKE position.
BEFORE STARTING ENGINE
follow the safety rules relating to fuel before
fueling your unit.
The PRIMER BULB removes air from the carburetor and fuel lines and fills them with fuel.
This allows you to start the engine with fewer
pulls on the starter rope. Activate the primer
bulb by pressing it and allowing it to return to
its original form.
WARNING: Be sure to read the fuel
information in the safety rules before you begin. If you do not understand the safety rules,
do not attempt to fuel your unit. Call
1-800-554--6723.
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.
See the STORAGE section for additional information.
FUELING ENGINE
WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly
when refueling.
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 of oil with 1 gallon 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

WARNING: Always wear eye protection. Never lean over the trimmer head. Rocks
or debris can ricochet or be thrown into eyes
and face and cause blindness or other serious
injury.
Do not run the engine at a higher speed than
necessary. The cutting line will cut efficiently
when the engine is run at less than full throttle.
At lower speeds, there is less engine noise and
vibration. The cutting line will last longer and will
be less likely to “weld” onto the spool.
Always release the throttle trigger and allow
the engine to return to idle speed when not
cutting.
To stop engine:
S Release the throttle trigger.
S Push and release the engine ON/STOP
switch.
S During light duty cutting.
S Near objects around which the line can
wrap such as small posts, trees or fence
wire.
S For mowing or sweeping, use full throttle for
a good clean job.
TRIMMING -- Hold the bottom of the trimmer
head about 3 in. (8 cm) above the ground and
at an angle. Allow only the tip of the line to
make contact. Do not force trimmer line into
work area.
TRIMMER LINE ADVANCE
The trimmer line will advance approximately 2
in. (5 cm) each time the bottom of the trimmer
head is tapped on the ground with the engine
running at full throttle.
The most efficient line length is the maximum
length allowed by the line limiter.Always keep
the shield in place when the tool is being operated.
To advance line:
S Operate the engine at full throttle.
S Hold the trimmer head parallel to and above
the grassy area.
S Tap the bottom of the trimmer head lightly
on the ground one time. Approximately 2 in.
(5 cm) of line will be advanced with each
tap.
Always tap the trimmer head on a grassy
area. Tapping on surfaces such as concrete
or asphalt can cause excessive wear to the
trimmer head.
If the line is worn down to 2 inches (5 cm) or
less, more than one tap will be required to obtain the most efficient line length.
Trimming
SCALPING -- The scalping technique removes unwanted vegetation. Hold the bottom
of the trimmer head about 3 in. (8 cm) above
the ground and at an angle. Allow the tip of the
line to strike the ground around trees, posts,
monuments, etc. This technique increases
line wear.
WARNING: Use only 0.080! (2 mm)
diameter line. Other sizes of line will not advance properly and can cause serious injury.
Do not use other materials such as wire,
string, rope, etc. Wire can break off during
cutting and become a dangerous missile that
can cause serious injury.
CUTTING METHODS
WARNING: Use minimum speed
and do not crowd the line when cutting around
hard objects (rock, gravel, fence posts, etc.),
which can damage the trimmer head, become
entangled in the line, or be thrown causing a
serious hazard.
S The tip of the line does the cutting. You will
achieve the best performance and
minimum line wear by not crowding the line
into the cutting area. The right and wrong
ways are shown below.
MOWING -- Your trimmer is ideal for mowing
in places conventional lawn mowers cannot
reach. In the mowing position, keep the line
parallel to the ground. Avoid pressing the
head into the ground as this can scalp the
ground and damage the tool.
S The line will easily remove grass and
weeds from around walls, fences, trees and
flower beds, but it also can cut the tender
bark of trees or shrubs and scar fences.
S For trimming or scalping, use less than full
throttle to increase line life and decrease
head wear, especially:
6
SWEEPING -- The fanning action of the rotating line can be used for a quick and easy
clean up. Keep the line parallel to and above
the surfaces being swept and move the tool
from side to side.
MAINTENANCE
CLEAN AIR FILTER
WARNING:
Disconnect the spark
plug before performing maintenance except
for carburetor adjustments.
A dirty air filter decreases engine performance and increases fuel consumption and
harmful emissions. Always clean after every
5 hours of operation.
1. Clean the cover and the area around it to
keep dirt from falling into the carburetor
chamber when the cover is removed.
2. Remove parts as illustrated.
NOTE: To avoid creating a fire hazard or
producing harmful evaporative emissions, do
not clean filter in gasoline or other flammable
solvent.
3. Wash the filter in soap and water.
