WARNING!
A standard grass trimmer with a loop handle should NEVER be operated with blade-type attachments. For
blade use the trimmer must be fitted with a bicycle-type handlebar or a barrier bar that is located in front of the operator
to reduce the risk of the operator from coming in contact with the cutting attachment (per ANSI B175.3). When using a
blade, the unit must also be equipped with a harness or strap.
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 2-stroke 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. FD standards must
be used. Shindaiwa One 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. FD certified oil will void the engine warranty.
For increased engine protection, Shindaiwa recommends using Shindaiwa Red Armor engine oil to protect the
engine from harmful carbon build up, maintain engine performance, and increase engine life. Red Armor engine
oil exceeds ISO-L-EGD and J.A.S.O. FD performance requirements.
IMPORTANT!
Examples of 50:1 mixing quantities
Shindaiwa One 2-Stroke oil or Red Armor 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.
9

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..
WARNING!
When carburetor adjustment is completed, the cutting attachment should not move at idle, otherwise serious
personal injury may result.
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.
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 cutting attachment must NEVER rotate at engine idle! If the idle
speed cannot be adjusted by the procedure described here, return the trimmer to your Shindaiwa dealer for inspection.
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 3,000 (±250) min-1 (rpm).
4. Carburetor fuel mixture adjustments are preset at factory and cannot be
serviced in the field.
