FUELING ENGINE
WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly
when refueling.
This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded petrol. Before operation, petrol
must be mixed with a good quality 2-cycle
air-cooled engine oil. We recommend
McCulloch brand oil mixed at a ratio of 40:1
(2.5%). A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 5
liters of unleaded petrol with 0,125 liter of oil.
When mixing fuel, follow the instructions
printed on the container. Always read and
follow the safety rules before fueling your unit.

OPERATING TIPS
IMPORTANT
Vacuum
S While vacuuming or blowing debris, hold
the unit with the muffler side facing away
from your body and clothes (see OPERATING POSITION).
S To reduce the risk of hearing loss
associated with sound level(s), hearing
protection is required.
S To reduce the risk of injury associated with
contacting rotating parts, stop the engine before installing or removing attachments. Do
not operate without guard(s) in place.
S Operate power equipment only at reasonable
hours--not early in the morning or late at night
when people might be disturbed. Comply with
times listed in local ordinances. Usual recommendations are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday though Saturday.
S To reduce noise levels, limit the number of
pieces of equipment used at any one time.
S To reduce noise levels, operate power
blowers at the lowest possible throttle
speed to do the job.
S Use rakes and brooms to loosen debris before blowing.
S In dusty conditions, slightly dampen surfaces or use a mister attachment when water is available.
S Conserve water by using power blowers
instead of hoses for many lawn and garden
applications, including areas such as gutters,
screens, patios, grills, porches, and gardens.
S Watch out for children, pets, open windows,
or freshly washed cars. Blow debris away
safely.
S Use the full blower nozzle extension so the
air stream can work close to the ground.
S After using blowers and other equipment,
CLEAN UP! Dispose of debris in trash receptacles.
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.
HOW TO STOP YOUR ENGINE
S Release the throttle trigger.
S Push and hold the STOP switch in the
STOP position until the engine stops.
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
WARNING: You MUST make sure the
tubes are secure before using the unit.
D Fuel engine. Move at least 3 meters away
from the fueling site.
D Hold the unit in the starting position as
shown. Make sure the blower end is directed away from people, animals, glass,
and solid objects.
