DANGER: RISK OF CUT. KEEP
HANDS AND FEET AWAY FROM TINES
AND CUTTING AREA. Rotating tines can
cause serious injury. Do not attempt to clear
away cut material or hold material to be cut
when the engine/motor is running. Make sure
powerhead is stopped and spark plug wire is
disconnected (or powerhead is disconnected
from power source) when removing jammed
material from the tines. Do not grab or hold attachment by the tines.

Mix and pour fuel outdoors.
Keep away from sparks or flames.
Use a container approved for fuel.
Do not smoke or allow smoking near fuel or
the powerhead.
Avoid spilling fuel or oil. Wipe up all fuel
spills before starting the powerhead.
Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from
fueling site before starting powerhead engine.
Stop engine and allow to cool before removing fuel cap.
Remove fuel cap slowly.
Store unit and fuel in an area where fuel vapors cannot reach sparks or open flames
from water heaters, electric motors or
switches, furnaces, etc.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY (for electric
powerheads)
WARNING: Keep away from rotating
tines. You and others can be blinded/injured.
Wear eye and leg protection.
WARNING: Avoid a dangerous environment. To reduce the risk of electrical
shock, do not use in rain, in damp or wet locations, or around swimming pools, hot tubs,
etc. Do not expose to snow, rain, or water to
avoid the possibility of electrical shock. Do
not handle extension cord plug or unit with wet
hands.
S Use only a voltage supply as shown on the
nameplate of the unit.
S Avoid dangerous situations. Do not use in
presence of flammable liquids or gases to
avoid creating a fire or explosion and/or
causing damage to unit.

DOUBLE INSULATION
CONSTRUCTION
S Avoid dangerous environments. Do not
use in unventilated areas or where dust or
explosive vapors can build up.
S To reduce the risk of electrical shock, use
extension cords specifically marked as
suitable for outdoor appliances. The electrical rating of the cord must not be less than
the rating of the unit. The cord must be
marked with the suffix “W-A” (in Canada,
“W”). Make sure your extension cord is in
good condition. Inspect extension cord before use and replace if damaged. An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in
line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number,
the heavier the cord.
S Do not use multiple cords.
S The powerhead may have a polarized plug
(one blade is wider than the other); if so, it
will require the use of a polarized extension
cord. The appliance plug will fit into a polarized extension cord only one way. If the
plug does not fit fully into the extension
cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does
not fit, obtain a correct polarized extension
cord. A polarized extension cord will require the use of a polarized wall outlet. This
plug will fit into the polarized wall outlet only
one way. If plug does not fit fully into the wall
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install the
proper wall outlet. Do not change the equipment plug, extension cord receptacle, or
extension cord plug in any way.
S Do not attempt to repair unit. Inspect the insulation and connectors on the powerhead
and extension cord before each use. If
there is any damage, do not use until damage is repaired by your authorized service
center.
S Do not pull or carry by cord; do not use cord
as a handle, close a door on cord, or pull
cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep
cord away from heated surfaces. Do not
unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp
the plug, not the cord.
S Do not use the powerhead if the switch
does not turn the unit on and off properly.
Have the unit repaired by your authorized
service center.
S Keep the extension cord clear of operator
and obstacles at all times. Do not expose
cords to heat, oil, water, or sharp edges.
S Avoid any body contact with any grounded
conductor, such as metal fences, or pipes,
to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
Don’t handle plug or unit with wet hands.
S Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If
powerhead is not working as it should, has
been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or
dropped into water, return it to your authorized service center for repair.
S Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
protection should be provided on the circuit
or outlet to be used for the powerhead. Receptacles are available having built-in
GFCI protection and may be used for this
measure of safety.
Your powerhead should be double insulated to
help protect against electric shock. Double insulation construction consists of two separate
“layers” of electrical insulation instead of
grounding. Tools and appliances built with a
double insulation system are not intended to be
grounded. Safety precautions must be observed when operating any electrical tool. The
double insulation system only provides added
protection against injury resulting from an internal electrical insulation failure.
WARNING: All repairs to an electric
powerhead, including housing, switch, motor,
etc., must be diagnosed and repaired by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a
double insulated appliance must be identical to
the parts they replace. A double insulated
appliance is marked with the words “double insulation” or “double insulated”. The symbol
(square within a square) may also be marked on
the appliance. Failure to have the unit repaired
by your authorized service dealer can cause the
double insulation construction to become ineffective and result in serious injury.
UNIT/MAINTENANCE SAFETY
WARNING: Disconnect powerhead
spark plug (or disconnect powerhead from
power source) before performing maintenance.
S Inspect entire unit before each use. Replace damaged parts. Check for fuel leaks.
Make sure all fasteners are in place and securely fastened.
S Maintain unit according to recommended
procedures.
S Have all maintenance and service not explained in this manual performed by an authorized service center.
S Throw away tines that are bent, warped,
cracked, broken, or damaged in any other
way. Replace parts that are cracked,
chipped, or damaged before using the unit.
S Use only recommended Weed Eater! parts
and accessories. Never use wire, wire
rope, string, flailing devices, etc.
S Be sure tines stop turning when engine
idles (see CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENTS section of powerhead manual).
S Remove the tines before making carburetor
adjustments. Hold the unit by hand.
S Keep others away when making carburetor
adjustments.
S Never start the unit with the clutch housing
removed. The clutch can fly off and cause
serious injury.
S Avoid heavy contact with solid objects that
might stop the tines. If heavy contact occurs, stop the unit and inspect for damage.
S If tines strike a foreign object, follow these
steps: stop unit and disconnect spark plug
wire (or disconnect from power source), inspect for damage, and repair any damage
before resuming operation of the unit.

S Never douse or squirt the attachment with
water or any other liquid. Clean unit and decals with a damp sponge (see STORAGE).
If situations occur which are not covered in
this manual, use care and good judgment. If
you need assistance, call 1-800-554-6723.
SPECIAL NOTICE: Exposure to vibrations through prolonged use of gasoline powered hand tools could cause blood vessel or
nerve damage in the fingers, hands, and
joints of people prone to circulation disorders
or abnormal swellings. Prolonged use in cold
weather has been linked to blood vessel damage in otherwise healthy people. If symptoms
occur such as numbness, pain, loss of
strength, change in skin color or texture, or
loss of feeling in the fingers, hands, or joints,
discontinue the use of this tool and seek medical attention. An anti-vibration system does
not guarantee the avoidance of these problems. Users who operate power tools on a
continual and regular basis must monitor
closely their physical condition and the condition of this unit.
CULTIVATING SAFETY
WARNING: Inspect the area to be cultivated before each use. Remove objects
(rocks, vines, branches, broken glass, nails,
wire, string, etc.) which can be thrown by the
tines or can wrap around the shaft.
S Hold the unit firmly with both hands.
S Keep firm footing and balance. Do not overreach or stand on unstable surfaces.
S Look behind and use care when backing
up.
S Keep all parts of your body away from the
tines and muffler.
S Do not force the unit. Use only for jobs explained in this manual. Use only for cultivating. Do not abuse unit. Do not use in rain or
wet locations.
S Use only in daylight or good artificial light.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
TRANSPORTING AND STORAGE
S Stop powerhead before leaving work area.
S Allow powerhead and gearbox to cool before storing or transporting it in a vehicle.
S Store unit and fuel in area where fuel vapors
cannot reach sparks or open flames from
water heaters, electric motors or switches,
furnaces, etc.
