■ 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. It is presently unknown what, if any,
vibrations or extent of exposure may contribute to the
condition. There are measures that can be taken by the
operator to possibly reduce the effects of vibration:
a) Keep your body warm in cold weather. When operating 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.
■

OPERATION
FUELING AND REFUELING THE TRIMMER
OPERATING THE TRIMMER
FUEL MIXTURE
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires
pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle oil. Pre-mix unleaded
gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil in a clean 1 gallon container
approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix oil with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact
Mix oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine
oil, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive oil or 2-cycle outboard oil.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30
days.
DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
See Figure 8.
Hold the trimmer with the right hand on the rear handle and
the 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 may 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 oil dripping from the muffler.

4. Prior to replacing the fuel cap, clean and inspect the
gasket.
5. Immediately replace fuel cap and hand tighten. Wipe up
any fuel spillage.
NOTE: It is normal for smoke to be emitted from a new
engine after first use.
WARNING:
Always shut off engine before fueling. Never add fuel
to a machine with a running or hot engine. Move at
least 30 ft. (9 m) from refueling site before starting
engine. Do not smoke!

OPERATION
ADVANCING THE STRING
ADVANCING STRING USING THE EZ LINE™ TAP
ADVANCE SYSTEM
String advance is controlled by tapping string head on grass
while running engine at full throttle.
1. Run engine at full throttle.
2. Tap string head on ground to advance string. String
advances each time the head is tapped.
3. Several taps may be required until string strikes the cut
off blade.
4. Resume trimming.
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.
ADVANCING THE STRING MANUALLY
Push the spool retainer down while pulling on string(s) to
manually advance the string.
CUT OFF BLADE
This trimmer is equipped with a cut-off blade on the grass
deflector. For best cutting, advance string until it is trimmed
to length by the cut-off blade. Advance string whenever you
hear the engine running faster than normal. This will maintain best performance and keep string long enough to
advance properly.
CUTTING TIPS
See Figure 9.
■ Keep the trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this is
the best cutting area.
■ Do not cut in dangerous cutting area.
■ Use the tip of string to do the cutting; do not force string
head into uncut grass.
■ Wire and picket fences cause extra string wear, even
breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may
wear string rapidly.
■ Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings,
siding, and fence posts can easily be damaged by the
string.

See Figures 10 and 11.
■ Loosen the wing nut and slide the edger guide to adjust it
to the desired trimming length then retighten the wing nut
securely. Refer to “Edger Guide Assembly” earlier in this
manual for additional information.
■ The edger guide allows the trimmer to be used as an
edger for cutting along sidewalks, driveways, flower
beds, etc. The edger guide is convenient to use and
supports the trimmer as it is being used as an edger.
■ Be extremely careful when tilting the trimmer to use as
an edger. The muffler, and the exhaust from the muffler
get very hot during operation. Keep the muffler away
from all body parts. See Figure 11.
