7. Fuel
■ FUEL
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 3 m (10 ft) away from the
fueling point before starting the engine.
• The Zenoah engines are lubricated by oil specially
formulated for air-cooled 2-cycle gasoline engine use.
If Zenoah oil is not available, use an anti-oxidant
added quality oil expressly labeled for air-cooled 2cycle engine use (JASO FC GRADE OIL or ISO EGC
GRADE).
• Do not use BIA or TCW (2-stroke water-cooling type)
mixed oil.
■ RECOMMENDED MIXING RATIO
GASOLINE 50 : OIL 1
<when using ZENOAH genuine 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 89RON (USA/Canada: 87AL).
• If you use a gasoline of a lower octane value than
prescribed, there is a danger that the engine temperature may rise and an engine problem such as
piston seizing may consequently occur.
• 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
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. As some oils may be difficult to agitate depending on oil ingredients, sufficient agitation
is necessary for the engine to last long. Be careful
that, if the agitation is insufficient, there is an increased
danger of early piston seizing due to abnormally lean
mixture.
5. Put a clear indication on the outside of the container
to avoid mixing up with gasoline or other containers.
6. Indicate the contents on outside of container for 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. At that
time, be sure to sufficiently agitate the mixed gasoline in the container.
■ 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 – It can cause spark
plug fouling, exhaust port blocking, or piston ring sticking.
4. Mixed fuels which have been left unused for a period of one month or more may clog the carburetor
and result in the engine failing to operate properly.
5. In the case of storing the product for a long period of
time, clean the fuel tank after rendering it empty. Next,
activate the engine and empty the carburetor of the
composite fuel.
6. In the case of scrapping the used mixed oil container,
scrap it only at an authorized repository site.
NOTE
As for details of quality assurance, read the description
in the section Limited Warranty carefully. Moreover, normal wear and change in product with no functional influence are not covered by the warranty. Also, be careful
that, if the usage in the instruction manual is not observed
as to the mixed gasoline, etc. described therein, it may
not be covered by the warranty.
IMPORTANT
Pay attention to agitation.
1. Measure out the quantities of gasoline and oil to be
mixed.
2. Put some of the gasoline into a clean, approved fuel
container.

Adjust the harness length so that the cutting head
may become parallel to the ground.
WARNING
• Make sure to use harness and cutting attachment guard. If not, it is vary dangerous
when you slip or lose your balance.
• When replacing blade always be sure to use products
which have been certified by ZENOAH.
WARNING
• When sharpening, removing, or reattaching the blade,
be sure to wear thick, sturdy gloves and use only
proper tools and equipment to prevent injury.

8. Operation
CUTTING METHOD
(a)Use the front left side cutting.
(b) Guide the blade from your right to left with it tilted
slightly to your left.
(c) When mowing a wide area, start working from your
left end to avoid interference of cut grass.
(d) The blade may be seized by weeds if the engine
speed is too low, or the blade cuts too deep into
weeds. Adjust the engine speed and cutting depth
according to the condition of object.
WARNING
• If the grass or other object gets caught in the blade,
or if the unit starts to shake or vibrate, turn off the
engine and check the whole unit. Change the blade if
it has been damaged.
• Turn off the engine and make sure the blade has completely stop before checking the blade, and removing any object got caught in.
WARNING
CONTROLLING BLADE BOUNCE
• Kick out can cause serious personal injury. Carefully
study this section. It is important that you understand
what causes kick out, how you can reduce the chance
of kick out and how you can remain in control of the
unit if kick out does occur.
1. What causes kick out:
• Kick out can occur when the moving blade contacts
an object that it cannot cut. This contact causes the
blade to stop for an instant and then suddenly move
or ”bounce” away from the object that was hit. The
operator can lose control of the unit and the blade
can cause serious personal injury to the operator or
any person nearby if the blade contacts any part of
the body.
2. How you can reduce the chance of kick out:
a. Recognize that kick out can happen. By understanding and knowing about bounce, you can help eliminate the element of surprise.
b. Cut fibrous weeds and grass only. Do not let the blade
contact materials it cannot cut such as hard, woody
vines and brush or rocks, fences, metal, etc
c. Be extra prepared for bounce if you must cut where
you cannot see the blade making contact such as in
areas of dense growth.
d. Keep the blade sharp. A dull blade increase the
chance of bounce.
e. Avoid feeding the blade too rapidly. The blade can
bounce away from material being cut if the blade is
fed faster than its cutting capability.
f. Cut only from your right to your left.
g. Keep your path of advance clear of material that has
been cut and other debris.
3. How you can maintain the best control:
a. Keep a good, firm grip on the unit with both hands. A
firm grip can help neutralize bounce. Keep your right
and left hands completely around the respective
handles.
b. Keep both feet spread apart in a comfortable stance
and yet braced for the possibility that the unit could
bounce. Do not overreach. Keep firm footing and
balance.

BC2604DL / BC2604DW
8. Operation
CUTTING WORK (TRIMMER HEAD USAGE)
2. You can avoid thrown debris by sweeping from your
left to the right.
WARNING
1. Always wear eye protection such as safety
goggles. Never lean over the rotating cutting head.
Rocks or other debris could be thrown into eyes
and face and cause serious personal injury.
2. Keep the cutting attachment guard in place at all
times when the unit is operated.
TRIMMING GRASS AND WEEDS
• Always remember that the TIP of the line does cutting. You will achieve better results by not crowding
the line into the cutting area. Allow the unit to trim at
its own pace.
1. Hold the unit so the head is off the ground and is tilted
about 20 degrees toward the sweep direction.
3. Use a slow, deliberate action to cut heavy growth.
The rate of cutting motion will depend on the material
being cut. Heavy growth will require slower action than
will light growth.
4. Never swing the unit so hard as you are in danger of
losing your balance or control of the unit.
5. Try to control the cutting motion with the hip rather
than placing the full workload on the arm and hands.
6. Take precautions to avoid wire, grass and dead, dry,
long-stem weeds from wrapping around the head
shaft. Such materials can stall the head and cause
the clutch to slip, resulting in damage to the clutch
system if repeated frequently.
ADJUSTING THE LINE LENGTH
• Your brush cutter is equipped with a semi- auto type
nylon line head that allows the operator to advance
the line without stopping the engine. When the line
becomes short, lightly tap the head on the ground
while running the engine at full throttle.
• Each time the head is bumped, the line advances
about 25 mm. For better effect, tap the head on bear
ground or hard soil. Avoid bumping in thick, tall grass
as the engine may stall by overload.

AIR FILTER
• The air filter, if clogged, will reduce the engine performance. Check and clean the filter element in warm,
soapy water as required. Dry completely before installing. If the element is broken or shrunk, replace
with a new one.
(1) Air filter
FUEL FILTER
• When the engine runs short of fuel supply, check the
fuel cap and the fuel filter for blockage.
Point :
1. Keep the end corner sharp.
2. Round the root of the edge, using round file.
3. Do not use water when using a grinder.
IMPORTANT
• It is recommended that filing should be done by
professionals.
• Especially regarding filing the saw blade, Leave it to
the professionals.

SPARK PLUG
• Starting failure and misfiring are often caused by a
fouled spark plug. Clean the spark plug and check
that the plug gap is in the correct range. For a replacement plug, use the correct type specified by
ZENOAH.
WARNING
• Make sure that the engine has stopped and is cool
before performing any service to the machine. Contact with moving cutting head or hot muffler may
result in a personal injury.

INTAKE AIR COOLING VENT
WARNING
• Check the intake air cooling vent after every 25
hours of use for blockage, and remove any waste
which has attached itself to the brushcutter.
IMPORTANT
• If waste gets stuck and causes blockage around the
intake air cooling vent, it may cause the engine to
overheat, and that in turn may cause mechanical failure on the part of the machine.
WARNING
• Inspect periodically, the muffler for loose fasteners,
any damage or corrosion. If any sign of exhaust leakage is found, stop using the machine and have it repaired immediately.
• Note that failing to do so may result in the engine
catching on fire.
