Mixing Fuel
WARNING!
Alternative fuels, such as E15 (15% ethanol), E-85 (85% ethanol) or any fuels not meeting Shindaiwa
requirements are NOT approved for use in Shindaiwa gasoline engines. Use of alternative fuels may cause
performance problems, loss of power, overheating, fuel vapor lock, and unintended machine operation, including,
but not limited to, improper clutch engagement. Alternative fuels may also cause premature deterioration of fuel
lines, gaskets, carburetors and other engine components.
Fuel Requirements
Gasoline - Use 89 Octane [R+M/2] (mid grade or higher) gasoline known to be good quality. Gasoline may contain
up to 10% Ethanol (grain alcohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether). Gasoline containing methanol (wood
alcohol) is NOT approved.
2 Stroke Mixture Oil - A 2-stroke engine oil meeting ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. M345/FD standards
must be used. Shindaiwa OneTM 2-Stroke Oil is strongly recommended as it meets this standard and is specifically
formulated for use in all Shindaiwa 2-stroke engines. Engine problems due to inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. M345/FD certified oil will void the engine warranty.
For increased engine protection, Shindaiwa recommends using Shindaiwa Red ArmorTM engine oil to protect the
engine from harmful carbon build up, maintain engine performance, and increase engine life. Shindaiwa Red ArmorTM
engine oil exceeds ISO-L-EGD and J.A.S.O. M345/FD performance requirements.
IMPORTANT!
Examples of 50:1 mixing quantities
Shindaiwa OneTM 2-Stroke oil or Red ArmorTM engine oil may be mixed at 50:1
ratio for application in all Shindaiwa engines sold in the past, regardless of ratio
specified in those manuals.
IMPORTANT!
Stored fuel ages. Do not mix more fuel than you expect to use in thirty (30) days, ninety (90) days when a fuel stabilizer is added. Use of unmixed, improperly mixed, or stale fuel, may cause hard starting, poor performance, or severe
engine damage and void the product warranty. Read and follow instructions in
the Long Term Storage section of this manual.
Handling Fuel
DANGER
Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling or serious personal injury may result.
•Use an approved fuel container.
•DO NOT smoke near fuel.
•DO NOT allow flames or sparks near fuel.
•Fuel tanks/cans may be under pressure. Always loosen fuel caps slowly allowing pressure to equalize.
•NEVER refuel a unit when the engine is HOT or RUNNING!
•DO NOT fill fuel tanks indoors. ALWAYS fill fuel tanks outdoors over bare ground.
• DO NOT overfill fuel tank. Wipe up spills immediately.
•Securely tighten fuel tank cap and close fuel container after refueling.

Carburetor Adjustment
Engine Break-In
New engines must be operated a minimum duration of two tanks of fuel break-in before carburetor adjustments can be
made. During the break-in period your engine performance will increase and exhaust emissions will stabilize. Idle speed can
be adjusted as required.
High Altitude Operation
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting, emission, and durability performance up to
1,100 feet above sea level (ASL) (96.0 kPa). To maintain proper engine operation and emission compliance above
1,100 feet ASL the carburetor may need to be adjusted by an authorized ECHO service dealer.
IMPORTANT!
If the engine is adjusted for operation above 1,100 feet ASL, the carburetor
must be re-adjusted when operating the engine below 1,100 feet ASL, otherwise severe engine damage may result.
NOTE:
Every unit is run at the factory and the carburetor is set in compliance with
emission regulations. Carburetor adjustments, other than idle speed, must be
performed by an authorized Shindaiwa dealer.
Adjusting engine idle
The engine must return to idle speed whenever the throttle lever is released.
Idle speed is adjustable, and must be set low enough to permit the engine
clutch to disengage the cutting attachment.
WARNING!
The cutters must NEVER engage at engine idle speeds! If the idle
speed cannot be adjusted by the procedure, described here, contact your
authorized Shindaiwa servicing dealer.
Idle Speed Adjustment
1. Place the trimmer on the ground, then start the engine, and then allow it to
idle 2-3 minutes until warm.
2. If the attachment rotates when the engine is at idle, reduce the idle speed
by turning the idle adjustment screw counter-clockwise.
3. If a tachometer is available, the engine idle speed should be final adjusted
to the values in the Specification section.

WARNING!
The cutter blades are very sharp! Always wear gloves when
working around the cutter assembly.
Cutting performance of your machine depends a great deal on proper cutter
blade adjustment. Properly adjusted blades will oscillate freely yet help prevent binding of cut material between blades. Adjust blades as follows:
1. Loosen all blade locknuts at least one full turn.
2. Tighten each blade shoulder bolt firmly, and then loosen the shoulder bolts
1/4 to 1/2 turn.
CAUTION!
Operating the trimmer with worn or improperly adjusted cutters will reduce
cutter performance and may also damage your machine. Never operate the
machine with damaged or worn cutters.

3. Working from the gearcase end, lock each bolt in place by firmly tightening
its locknut while preventing the shoulder bolt from turning.
When shoulder bolt adjustment is correct, there should be a gap of 0.25–
0.50 mm between the cutter blades and the flat washers, and the flat washer
beneath each bolt head should turn freely.

Long Term Storage
Whenever the unit will not be used for 30 days or longer, use the following procedures to prepare it for storage:
• Clean external parts thoroughly.
• Drain all the fuel from the fuel tank.
IMPORTANT!
Stored fuel ages. Do not mix more fuel than you expect to use in thirty (30) days, ninety (90) days when a fuel stabilizer is added.
CAUTION!
Gasoline stored in the carburetor for extended periods can cause hard starting and could also lead to increased service and maintenance cost.
• Remove the remaining fuel from the fuel lines and carburetor.
1. Prime the primer bulb until no more fuel is passing through.
2. Start and run the engine until it stops running.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the engine will no longer start.
• Remove the spark plug and pour about 1/4 ounce of 2-cycle mixing oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole.
Slowly pull the recoil starter 2 or 3 times so oil will evenly coat the interior of the engine. Reinstall the spark plug.
• Before storing the unit, repair or replace any worn or damaged parts.
• Remove the air cleaner element from the carburetor and clean it thoroughly with soap and water. Let dry and reassemble the element.
• Store the unit in a clean, dust-free area.
