Personal protective eqipment
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
•
Incorrect or careless use of a hedge trimmer can
turn it into a dangerous tool that can cause
serious or even fatal injury. It is extremely
important that you read and understand this
manual.
•
When using a hedge trimmer, protective
equipment approved by the appropriate
authorities must be used. Personal protective
equipment does not eliminate the risk of
accidents, however, it can reduce the effects of an
injury in the event of an accident. Ask your dealer
for help when choosing protective equipment.
!
WARNING!
Remove your hearing protection as soon as
you stop the engine, so that you can hear
any noises or warning signals.
GLOVES
Gloves should be worn when
necessary, e.g., when
inspecting, cleaning or
assembling cutting equipment.
EAR PROTECTION
Ear protection offering
sufficient dampening effect
should be used.
EYE PROTECTION
Blows from branches or
objects thrown by the
moving blades can damage
the eyes.
BOOTS
Use anti-slip and stable
boots.
CLOTHING
Wear clothes made of a
strong fabric and avoid loose
clothing that can catch on
shrubs and branches. Always
wear heavy-duty long pants.
Do not wear jewellery,
shorts, sandals or go barefoot. Secure hair so it is
above shoulder level.
FIRST AID KIT
A first aid kit should be close
at hand.

The machine’s protective equipment
This section describes the hedge trimmer’s protective equipment, its function and how checks and maintenance are
carried out to ensure that it operates correctly. (See the chapter
”What is what” to locate where this equipment is positioned on
your machine.)
!
WARNING!
Never use a hedge trimmer with defective
protective equipment. Follow the control,
maintenance and service instructions
described in this section.
1. Throttle trigger lock
The throttle trigger lock is
designed to prevent the
throttle from accidentally
being engaged. The trigger
(A) can only be pressed in, if
the lock (B) is held in (= the
operator holding the
handle). When the grip on
the handle is released the
throttle and the throttle
trigger lock return to their
original positions. This
takes place via two independent return spring systems.
This means that the throttle
is automatically locked in
the idling position.
"

2. Stop switch
The stop switch (C) should
be used to stop the engine.
3. Hand guard
The hand guard (D)
prevents the operator’s
hands from coming into
contact with the blades. For
example, if the operator
should loose his grip on the
front handle.
D
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
4. Vibration
damping system
The hedge trimmer is
equipped with a vibration
damping system, which is
designed to give as vibration-free and comfortable
use as possible.
The hedge trimmer’s
vibration damping system
reduces the transfer of
vibrations between the
engine/unit blades and the
hedge trimmer’s handles.
The engine body, including
the blades, is suspended on
the handlebar system by five
springs.
!
WARNING!
Over exposure to vibrations can result in
blood-vessel or nerve injury to persons
suffering with blood circulation problems.
Seek medical attention if you experience
physical symptoms that can be related to
over exposure to vibrations. Examples of
such symptoms are ”numbness”, lack of
feeling, ”tickling”, ”pricking”, ”pain”, lack
of or a reduction in normal strength,
changes in the colour of the skin or its
surfaces. These symptoms normally appear
in the fingers, hands or wrists.
5. Muffler
The muffler is designed to
give the lowest possible noise
level and to direct the
engine‘s exhaust fumes away
from the operator. Muffler
fitted with catalytic converter is also designed to
reduce harmful exhaust
components.
In countries that have a
warm and dry climate the
risk of fire is obvious. We
have therefore fitted certain
mufflers with a spark arrest
screen. Make sure that your
muffler is fitted with this
kind of screen.
It is extremely important
that the instructions for
checking, maintaining and
servicing the muffler are
followed. (See the section
“Control, maintenance and
service of the machine‘s safety
equipment“).
!
!
WARNING!
Mufflers fitted with catalytic converters
become extremely hot during use and
after stopping. This also applies at idling
speeds. Contact can result in burns to
the skin. Be observant to the risk of fire!
WARNING!
Bear in mind that exhaust fumes:
• contain carbon monoxide, which can
cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Therefore never start or run the machine
indoors.
• are hot and can contain sparks that can
cause fires. Never start the machine
indoors or close to inflammable material.

equipment. The safety equipment should
be maintained as described in this
section. If your machine does not meet
any of these controls you should contact
your service workshop.
WARNING!
Always stop the engine before starting
work on any part of the cutting
equipment. This continues to rotate even
after the throttle has been released.
Ensure that the cutting equipment has
stopped completely and remove the cable
from the spark plug before you start to
work on it.
1. Throttle trigger lock
2. Stop switch
• Check that the throttle is
locked in the “idling
position“ when the
throttle trigger lock is in
its original position.
• Start the engine and
make sure that the engine
stops when the stop
switch is moved to the
stop position.
• Press in the throttle
trigger lock and make
sure it returns to its
original position when
released.
3. Hand guard
• Ensure that the throttle

move easily and that their
return spring systems
function.
• See the section ”Start”.
Start the hedge trimmer
and apply full throttle.
Release the throttle and
check that the blades
stop and remain at a
standstill. If the blades
rotate with the throttle in
the idling position then
the carburettor’s idling
setting must be checked.
See chapter ”Maintenance”.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
5. Muffler
7. Blade guard
• Never use a machine that
has a defective muffler.
• Replace the blades if they
are bent or damaged.
• Check regularly that the
muffler is secure.
• If your muffler is fitted
with a spark arrest screen
then it should be cleaned
regularly. A blocked
screen leads to the engine
overheating with serious
damage as a result. Never
use a muffler with a
defective spark arrest
screen.
6. Blades
To ensure good cutting
results it is important that
the contact pressure
between the blades is
correct.
The contact pressure
between the blades is
adjusted by tightening the
screws on the underside of
the bar as far as they will
go, then backing them off
1/4 turn. Lock the screws
using the locking nuts on
the top face of the bar.
The washers should still
slide freely under the
screw heads after the
screws have been tightened.
The edges of the blade are
too hard to be filed. Dull
blades should be sharpened using a grinder.

FUEL HANDLING
Fuel
Mixture
NOTE!
The machine is fitted with a two-stroke engine and must
always be run on a mixture of petrol and two-stroke oil. It is
important to measure the quantity of oil accurately, to ensure
the correct mixture ratio. Small discrepancies in the amount of
oil have a great bearing on the proportions of the fuel mixture
when mixing small amounts of fuel.
• Always mix petrol and oil in a clean container intended for
petrol.
• Always start by filling half the quantity of petrol required.
Then add the entire oil quantity. Mix (shake) the fuel
mixture. Fill the remaining quantity of petrol.
• Mix (shake) the fuel mixture carefully before filling in the
machine‘s fuel tank.
• Do not mix more than max. one month’s supply of fuel.
• If the machine is not used for a long period of time, the fuel
tank should be emptied and cleaned.
!
WARNING!
Always provide good ventilation when
handling fuel.
Petrol
NOTE!
Always use an oil-mixed
quality petrol (at least 90
octane). If your machine is
equipped with a catalytic
converter, (see “technical
data”) an unleaded, oil
mixed quality petrol should
always be used. A leaded
petrol will destroy the
catalytic converter.
• The lowest recommended
octane rating is 90. If you
run the engine on a petrol
with a lower octane rating
than 90 so-called
“knocking“ can occur.
This leads to an increased
engine temperature,
which can result in a
serious engine
breakdown.
• When working at
continuous high revs a
higher octane rating is
recommended.
Two-stroke oil
•
For the best results use
HUSQVARNA twostroke oil, which has been
specially produced for
HUSQVARNA’s small,
two-stroke engines.
Mixing ratio 1:50 (2%).
•
If HUSQVARNA two-stroke oil is not available you can
use a high quality two-stroke oil intended for air cooled
engines. Contact your dealer when selecting an oil.
Mixing ratio: 1:33 (3%).
•
Never use two-stroke oil intended for water cooled
outboard motors, so-called outboard motor oil.
•
Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
12 – English
!
WARNING!
The catalytic converter muffler gets very hot
during and after use. This also applies
during idling. Be aware of the fire hazard,
especially when handling the saw near
flammable substances or vapours.
Fuelling
!
WARNING!
The following precautions reduce the risk
of fire:
Do not smoke or place any sources of heat
in the vicinity of the fuel. Never refuel
when the engine is running. Always stop
the engine and let it cool for a few minutes
before refuelling. Open the fuel cap slowly
when fuelling so that any over pressure is
released slowly. Tighten the fuel cap
carefully after refuelling. Always move the
machine from the fuelling place before
starting.
• Clean around the fuel
cap. Contamination in
the tank can disrupt
operations.
• Ensure that the fuel is
well mixed by shaking
the container before
filling the tank.

MAINTENANCE
Carburettor
Basic setting
Your Husqvarna product has been designed and manufactured to specifications that reduce harmful emissions.
After your unit has been run 8-10 tanks of fuel the engine
has broken in. To ensure that your unit is at peak performance and producing the least amount of harmful emissions
after break in, have your authorized servicing dealer, who has
a revolution counter at his disposal, to adjust your carburettor for optimum operating conditions.
•
!
WARNING!
The complete clutch cover and gear must
be fitted before the machine is started,
otherwise the clutch may come loose and
cause injury.
Operation
• The carburettor governs
the engine’s speed via the
throttle. Air/fuel is mixed
in the carburettor. The
air/fuel mixture is
adjustable. To take
advantage of the engine’s
optimal output the
adjustment must be
correct.
The carburettor is set to its basic setting when test run at
the factory. The basic setting is richer than the optimal
setting and should be kept during the machine’s first
working hours. Thereafter the carburettor should be finely
adjusted. Fine adjustment should be carried out by a skilled
technician.
NOTE! NOTE! If the blades move while the engine is idling
the T-screw should be turned anti-clockwise until the blades
stop.
Recommended idling speed is 2 700 rpm.
Recommended max. speed: See “technical data”.
!
WARNING!
If the idling speed cannot be adjusted so
that the blades stop, contact your
service workshop. Do not use the
machine until it has been correctly
adjusted or repaired.
Fine adjustment
L
H
T
• The setting of the
carburettor means that
the engine is adapted to
local conditions, for
example, the climate,
altitude, petrol and the
type of 2-stroke oil.
•
The carburettor is equipped with three adjustment
possibilities:
H = High speed needle
L = Low speed needle
T = Idle speed adjuster screw
•
The fuel quantity in relation to the air flow permitted by
the throttle opening is adjusted using the L and H-needles.
Turning the needles clockwise gives a leaner fuel mixture
(less fuel) and turning them anti-clockwise gives a richer
fuel mixture (more fuel). A leaner mixture gives high revs
while a richer mixture give less revs.
•
The T-screw regulates the position of the throttle while
the engine is idling. Turning the screw clockwise gives a
higher idling speed while turning it anti-clockwise gives a
lower idling speed.
• When the machine has been ”run-in” the carburettor should
be finely adjusted. The fine adjustment should be carried
out by qualified person. First adjust the L-jet, then the
idling screw T and then the H-jet.
Conditions
• Before any adjustments are made the airfilter should be clean
and the airfilter cover fitted. Adjusting the carburettor while
a dirty airfilter is in use will result in a leaner mixture when
the filter is finally cleaned. This can give rise to serious
engine damage.
• Carefully turn the L and H needle to the mid point between
fully turned in and fully turned out.
• Do not attempt to adjust the needles beyond the stops as
damage can occur.
• Now start the machine according to the starting instructions
and run it warm for 10 minutes.
NOTE! If the blades move, the T screw should be turned
counter-clockwise until the blades stop.
Low speed needle L
L
Try to find the highest idling
speed, turning the low speed
needle L clockwise respectively counter-clockwise.
When the highest speed has
been found, turn the low
speed needle L 1/4 turn
counter-clockwise.
NOTE! If the blades move
when the engine is idling,
turn the idling speed screw T
counter-clockwise until the
blades stop.

14 – English
MAINTENANCE
Adjusting the idle speed, T
Correctly adjusted carburettor
Adjust the idling speed with
the screw T, if it is necessary
to readjust. First turn the
idle speed adjusting screw T
clockwise until the blades
start moving. Then turn the
screw anti-clockwise until
the blades stop. The idle
speed is correctly adjusted
when the engine runs
smoothly in every position.
There should also be a good
margin to the rpm at which
the blades start to move.
A correctly adjusted carburettor means that the machine
accelerates without hesitation and the machine 4-cycles a little
at max speed. Furthermore, the blades must not move at
idling. A too lean adjusted low speed needle L may cause
starting difficulties and bad acceleration.
A too lean adjusted high speed needle H gives lower power =
less capacity, bad acceleration and/or damage to the engine.
A too rich adjustment of the two speed needles L and H gives
acceleration problems or too low working speed.
T
WARNING! Contact your dealer/service workshop if the idle
speed setting cannot be adjusted so that the blades stop. Do
not use the machine until it has been properly adjusted or
repaired.
High speed needle H
The high speed needle
affects the machine’s power,
speed, temperature and fuel
consumption. A too lean
adjustment on the high
speed needle H (the high
speed needle H is screwed
in too much) gives a too
high speed resulting in
engine damage. Do not
allow the engine to run at
full speed for more than 10
seconds.
Apply full throttle and turn
the high speed needle H
slowly anticlockwise until
the engine runs unevenly.
The high speed needle H is
then turned slowly clockwise a little until the engine
runs smoothly.
Note the engine should be
run unloaded when
adjusting the high speed
needle.
H
H
The high speed needle is adjusted correctly when the machine
‘splatters’ a little . If the machine smokes heavily at the same
time as it ‘splatters’ heavily the adjustment is too rich.
NOTE! For optimum setting of the carburettor, contact a
qualified servicing dealer who has a revolution counter at his
disposal.

To maintain as low operating temperature as possible
the engine is equipped with
a cooling system.
The muffler is designed to
dampen the noise level and
to direct the exhaust fumes
away from the user. The
exhaust fumes are hot and
can contain sparks, which
can result in fire if the
exhaust fumes are directed
towards a dry and inflammable material. Some
mufflers are equipped with a
special spark arrest screen. If
your machine is fitted with
this type of screen it should
be cleaned regularly. This is
done using a wire brush. On
mufflers without a catalytic
converter the screen should
be cleaned weekly, or
replaced if necessary. On
mufflers fitted with a
catalytic converter the
screen should be checked
and cleaned monthly. If the
screen is damaged it should
be replaced. If the screen is
frequently blocked, this can
be a sign that the function
of the catalytic converter is
impaired. Contact your
dealer to inspect the muffler.
A blocked screen will cause
the engine to overheat
resulting in damage to the
cylinder and piston. Also see
under “Maintenance”.
The cooling system consists
of:
1. An air intake on the
starter unit.
2. Cooling fins on the
flywheel.
3. Cooling fins on the
cylinder
4. Cylinder cover (leads
cold air onto the
cylinder).
NOTE!
Never use a machine with a
defective muffler.
If the machine is low on
power, difficult to start or
runs poorly while idling
always check the spark plug
first before taking other
action.
!

WARNING!
Mufflers fitted with catalytic converters
become extremely hot during use and
after stopping. This also applies at idling
speeds. Contact can result in burns to
the skin. Be observant to the risk of fire!

Clean the cooling system
using a brush at least once a
week, in difficult conditions
more often.
A dirty or blocked cooling
system leads to the engine
overheating resulting in
damage to the cylinder and
piston.
Spark plug
The condition of the spark
plug is affected by:
• An incorrect carburettor
setting.
• An incorrect fuel mixture
(too much or faulty oil).
• A dirty air filter.
These factors cause deposits
on the spark plug electrode
that may result in malfunction or starting difficulties.
If the spark plug is dirty,
clean it and at the same time
check that the electrode gap
is 0.5 mm. The spark plug
should be changed after
about one month of operation or earlier if necessary.
NOTE! Always use the
recommended type of spark
plug. An incorrect spark plug
can damage the cylinder/
piston.

MAINTENANCE
Air filter
Gearbox
The air filter (A) should be
cleaned regularly removing
dust and dirt to avoid:
There is a grease nipple (A)
on the gearbox. Use a grease
gun to top up with grease.
This should be carried out
after approximately every 20
working hours. Use
Husqvarna special grease,
No. 503 98 96-01.
•
•
•
•
carburettor malfunction
starting problems
reduced engine power
unnecessary wear to
engine parts
• abnormal fuel
consumption
A
Clean the filter after every
25 hours or more regularly if
operating conditions are
exceptionally dusty.
B
Cleaning the air filter
Dismantle the air filter cover (B) and remove the air filter.
Wash in clean, warm soapy water. Ensure that the filter is dry
before refitting.
An air filter used for a long period of time can never be cleaned
completely. Therefore it is necessary to replace the filter from
time to time with a new filter. A damaged air filter must always
be replaced.
If the machine is used in dusty conditions the air filter
should be soaked in oil, see the section on “Oiling the air
filter“.
A
Note that the gearbox must
not be filled completely
with grease. The grease
expands as the machine
heats up during operation.
If the gearbox was completely filled with grease it
could damage the seals and
lead to leakage.
The lubricant in the gearbox does not normally need to be
replaced other than with repair.
Lubrication
Always lubricate the blade
runners with special grease
531 00 60-74 (UL 21)
before use.
Oiling the air filter
Always use HUSQVARNA
filter oil, order no. 503 47
73-01. The filter oil contains a solvent to make it
spread evenly through the
filter. You should therefore
avoid skin contact. Put the
filter in a plastic bag and the
pour the filter oil over it.
Knead the plastic bag to
distribute the oil. Squeeze
the excess oil out of the filter
inside the plastic bag and
pour off the excess before
fitting the filter on the
machine. Never use common engine oil. This would
drain through the filter
quite quickly and collect in
the bottom.
