It has been reported that vibrations from hand-held
tools may contribute to a condition called Raynaud’s
Syndrome in certain individuals. Symptoms may
include tingling, numbness and blanching of the fingers,
usually apparent upon exposure to cold. Hereditary
factors, exposure to cold and dampness, diet, smoking
and work practices are all thought to contribute to the
development of these symptoms. There are measures
that can be taken by the operator to possibly reduce
the effects of vibration:
a) K eep your body warm in cold weather. When
opera-ting the unit wear gloves to keep the hands

and wrists warm. It is reported that cold weather is
a major factor contributing to Raynaud’s Syndrome.
b) After each period of operation, exercise to increase
blood circulation.
c)Take frequent work breaks. Limit the amount of
exposure per day.
If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition,
immediately discontinue use and see your physician
about these symptoms.
Keep the tool well maintained, fasteners tightened
and worn parts replaced.
Mix and store fuel in a container approved for fuel.
Mix fuel outdoors where there are no sparks or flames.
Wipe up any fuel spillage. Move 9m away from
refuelling site before starting engine.
Stop the engine and allow to cool before refueling or

enough to cause the operator to lose control of the unit.
Kick back can occur without warning if the blade
snags, stalls, or binds. This is more likely to occur
in areas where it is difficult to see the material being
cut. For cutting ease and safety, approach the weeds
being cut from the right to the left. In the event an
unexpected object or woody stock is encountered,
this could minimize the blade kick back reaction.
n Never cut any material over 13mm diameter.
n Always wear the shoulder strap when using the brush
cutter and adjust to a comfortable operating position.
Maintain a firm grip on both handles while cutting with
a blade. Keep the blade away from body and below
waist. Never use the brush cutter with the blade
located 76cm or more above the ground level.
n Cover the blade with the blade protector before
storing the unit, or during transportation. Always
remove the blade protector before using the unit.
If not removed, the blade protector could become a
thrown object as the blade begins to turn.
Replace string head if cracked, chipped, or damaged
in any way. Be sure the string head or blade is
properly installed and securely fastened. Failure to do
so can cause serious injury.
Make sure all guards, straps, deflectors and handles
are properly and securely attached.
Use only the manufacturer's replacement line in the
cutting head. Do not use any other cutting attachment.
Never operate unit without the grass deflector in place
and in good condition.
Maintain a firm grip on both handles while trimming.
Keep string head below waist level. Never cut with
the string head located over 76cm or more above the
ground.

After engine stops, keep rotating blade in heavy grass
or pulpy weeds until it stops.
Do not operate the brushcutter unless the blade
guard is firmly secured in place and in good condition.
Use heavy gloves while installing or removing blades.
Always stop the engine and remove the spark plug
wire before attempting to remove any obstruction
caught or jammed in the blade or before removing
and installing the blade.
Do not attempt to touch or stop the blade when it is
rotating.
A coasting blade can cause injury while it continues
to spin after the engine is stopped or throttle trigger
released. Maintain proper control until the blade has
completely stopped rotating.
Replace any blade that has been damaged. Always
make sure blade is installed correctly and securely
fastened before each use. Failure to do so can cause
serious injury.
Use only the manufacturer's replacement TRI-ARC
blade intended for use on this brushcutter. Do not use
any other blade.
The TRI-ARC blade is suited for cutting pulpy weeds
and vines only. Do not use for any other purpose.
Never use the TRI-ARC blade to cut woody brush.
Exercise extreme caution when using the blade with
this unit. Blade thrust is the reaction that may occur
when the spinning blade contacts anything it cannot
cut. This contact may cause the blade to stop for
an instant, and suddenly “thrust” the unit away from
the object that was hit. This reaction can be violent

OPERATION
OPERATING THE TRIMMER
proper
operating
position
See Figure 13.
WARNING
Always position the unit on the operator’s right
side. The use of the unit on the operator’s left
side will expose the user to hot surfaces and can
result in possible burn injury.
WARNING
To avoid burns from hot surfaces, never operate
unit with the bottom of the engine above waist
level.
Hold the trimmer with your right hand on the rear handle
and your left hand on the front handle. Keep a firm grip
with both hands while in operation. Trimmer should be
held at a comfortable position with the rear handle about
hip height.
Always operate trimmer at full throttle. Cut tall grass from
the top down. This will prevent grass from wrapping around
the shaft housing and string head which could cause
damage from overheating. If grass becomes wrapped around
the string head, STOP THE ENGINE, disconnect the spark
plug wire, and remove the grass. Prolonged cutting at partial
throttle will result in lubricant dripping from the muffler.
WARNING
Always hold the string trimmer away from the
body keeping clearance between the body and
the product. Any contact with the housing or
string trimmer cutting head can result in burns
and/or other serious personal injury.
Fig. 13
TO ADVANCE THE CUTTING LINE (reel easy
string head)
String advance is controlled by tapping the string head on
grass while running engine at full throttle.
n
Run engine at full throttle.
n
Tap the knob on ground to advance string. The string
advances each time the knob is tapped. Do not hold
the knob on the ground.
NOTE: The line trimming cut-off blade on the grass
deflector will cut the line to the correct length.
NOTE: If the string is worn too short you may not be able
to advance the string by tapping it on the ground. If so,
stop the engine, and manually advance the string.
To advance the cutting line manually:
n
Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire.
n
Push the knob in while pulling on string(s) to manually
advance the string.

OPERATION
CUTTING TIPS
DANGEROUS
CUTTING AREA
See Figures 14 .
n Avoid hot surfaces by always keeping the tool away from
your body. (Proper operating position shown in figure 13.)
n Keep the trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this
is the best cutting area.
n The curved shaft trimmer cuts when passing the unit
from right to left. The straight shaft trimmer cuts when
passing the unit from left to right. This will avoid throwing
debris at the operator. Avoid cutting in the dangerous
area shown in illustration.
n Use the tip of string to do the cutting; do not force string
head into uncut grass.
n Wire and picket fences cause extra string wear, even
breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may
wear string rapidly.
n Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings,
siding, and fence posts can easily be damaged by the
string.

See Figure 15.
The trimmer is equipped with a line trimming cut-off blade
on the grass deflector. For best cutting, advance string
until it is trimmed to length by the cut-off blade. Advance
the line whenever you hear the engine running faster than
normal, or when trimming efficiency diminishes. This will
maintain best performance and keep the string long enough

OPERATING THE BRUSHCUTTER
See Figures 16 - 17.
Hold the brushcutter with your right hand on the rear handle
and the your hand on the “J” handle. Keep a firm grip with
both hands while in operation. Brushcutter should be held
at a comfortable position with the rear handle about hip
height. Maintain your grip and balance on both feet. Position yourself so that you will not be drawn off balance by
the kickback reaction of the cutting blade.
Adjust the shoulder harness to position the brushcutter at
a comfortable operating position and to assure that the
shoulder harness will reduce the risk of operator contact
with the blade.

n
Inspect and clear the area of any hidden objects such
as glass, rocks, concrete, fencing, wire, wood, metal,
etc.
Never use blades near sidewalks, fencing, posts,
buildings or other immovable objects.
Never use a blade after hitting a hard object without
first inspecting it for damage. Do not use if any damage
is detected.
The unit is used as a scythe, cutting from the right to
the left in a broad sweeping action from side to side.
Use only the Tri-Arc® blade. To install any other brand
blade or cutting head to this brushcutter can result in
serious personal injury.
BLADE THRUST
proper
operating
position
Exercise extreme caution when using the blade with this
unit. Blade thrust is the reaction that may occur when the
spinning blade contacts anything it cannot cut. This contact
may cause the blade to stop for an instant, and suddenly
“thrust” the unit away from the object that was hit. This reaction can be violent enough to cause the operator to lose
control of the unit. Blade thrust can occur without warning if
the blade snags, stalls, or binds. This is more likely to occur
in areas where it is difficult to see the material being cut.
For cutting ease and safety, approach the weeds being cut
with the brushcutter from the right to the left. In the event
an unexpected object or woody stock is encountered, this
practice could minimize the blade thrust reaction.
WARNING
To avoid burns from hot surfaces, never operate
unit with the bottom of the engine above waist
level.
Tri-Arc® BLADE
The Tri-Arc® blade is suited only for thicker weeds and
pulpy stalks. When the blade becomes dull, it can be
turned over to extend the life of the blade. Do not sharpen
the Tri-Arc® blade.
