Dear Valued Customer,
When you operate your new Craftsman air blower don't expect !o hear the high-pitchedengine noise commonly
associatedwith motorizedpower equipment.
L
This is a blower designedto meet the needs of both professionaland occasional users and comply with future noise
and emission standards.Many years of reseamh and engineeringwent intocreating this quieter, more efficientunit.
By redesigningthe engine,fan, and blower housingcomponents, noise emissionswere cut by 50%. Engine speed
was lowered by 2,500 RPM, which reduces noise, fuel consumption,and emissions, while increasing operatingtime
between refuelingwith the added benefit of a longer engine life.
Incorporatinga very powerfulengine and specially designed high volume fan the Craftsman blower is able to achieve
maximum air power at only 4,800 RPM. Competitive blowers typically run at 7,000 to 8,000 RPM. This air blower is
quietand powerful,features you and your neighborswill quicklyappreciate.

HOW TO USE YOUR BACKPACK
BLOWER
AIR
GASOUNE AND OIL MIXTURE
Important! Do not use automotive or boat oils in
your air blower. These oilsdo not have proper
additives for 2-cycle, air-cooled enginesand can
cause engine damage.
The 2.cycle engine on this productrequiresa fuel
mixtureof regular unleaded gasolineand a high quality
2-cycle air-cooled engine oil for lubricationof the
bearings and other moving pads. The correctfuel:oil
mixture is 40-1 (see Fuel Mixture Chad). Too littleoil
or the incorrectoil type will cause poor performance
and may cause the engine to overheatand seize.
USING THE MULTI-FUNCTION HANDLE
_Themulti-functionhandle has an on-off switch (Fig. 5,
A), a throttlelever (Fig. 5, B), and a speed lever (Fig.
5, C). It can be rotated to assure the operator's
•comfort.Once started, the speed lever can be set at a
desired RPM. This frees the operator from holdingthe
throttlelever. If not set on maximum RPM and a
• greater RPM is required, simplysqueeze the throttle
lever. To returnto the lower RPM, release the throttle
lever. If the operator plans on blowing at the maximum
RPM for a long period of time, the speed lever is
moved to the =max" setting. If the operator is only
blowingin shortbursts leave the speed lever at the
"min" settingand use the throttle lever to controlthe
speed.
FIGURE 5
Gasoline and oil must be premixed in a clean
approved fuel container. Always use fresh regular
unleaded gasoline. This engine is certifiedto operate
on unleaded 'gasoline.

IMPORTANTI Alcohol blended fuels called gasohol
(using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture,
which leads to oil/gas separation and formationof
acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel
system of an engine while in storage. To avoidengine
problems,the fuel system should be emptied before
storage of 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, then
run the fuel out of the carburetor and fuel lines by
startingthe engine and letting it run until it stops.Usa
fresh fuel next season. See storageinstructionsfor
additionalinfot'mation.Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner produc_sin the fuel tank or permanentdamage
may occur.
STARTING COLD
1. Move on-off switch to the on position identified
with an "1"(Fig. 5).
2. Set speed lever half way between the =rain" '_
and "max"'_ positions(Fig. 5).
3. Move choke lever (Fig. 6, A) to the =START"
position.
4. Press primer bulb (Fig. 6, B) until it is half full and
resistanceis felt.
5. Place left hand on top of the blower housing near
carryinghandle. Pull the starter rope handle'with
right hand slowly until resistance is felt. Then pull
forcefullyand repeatedly until engine attemptsto
start; usually2-3 pulls, no more than 5 pulls.
6. When engine attempts to start, immediately move
choke lever t0 "RUN" posifion.Continue to pull
starter rope handle until engine starts.
2-CYCLE OIL
Craftsman 2-cycle, air-cooled engine oil is specially
blended with fuel stabilizers. If you do not usethis
Sears oil, you can add a fuel stabilizer,such as
Craftsman No. 33500, to your fuel mix.
FUEL STABILIZER
A fuel stabilizer is an acceptable altamative in
minimizingthe formation of fuel gum depositsduring
storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline mixturein fuel
storage container and mix well. Always follow the fuel
mix ratiofound on the stabilizer container. Run engine
at least 5 minutes after adding stabilizerto allow the
stabilizer to reach the carburetor.You do not have to
drain the fuel tank for storage if you are using fuel
stabilizer.
FIGURE 6

STARTING WARM
Follow cold startinginstructionsbut leave choke lever
in "RUN" position.
STOPPING
To stop engine, release the throttle lever and adjust
the speed lever to "min_ position.Move switch to
STOP (O) position.In an emergency, immediately
move the switch to the STOP (O) position.
ADJUSTING THE CARRYING STRAPS
Put the blower on your back and yourarms through
the carrying straps as shown.The back plate of the
blower should rest securelyagainst your back. If the
