PUTTING INTO OPERATION
Fuel
CAUTION:
This trimmer is powered by mineral-oil products (gasoline
(petrol) and oil).
Be especially careful when handling gasoline (petrol).
Avoid all flame or fire. Do not smoke (explosion hazard).
Fuel mixture
The engine of the hedge trimmer is a high-efficiency two-stroke
engine. It runs on a mixture of gasoline and two-stroke engine
oil.
The engine is designed for unleaded regular gasoline with a
min. octane value of 91 ROZ. In case no such fuel is available,
you can use fuel with a higher octane value. This will not affect
the engine.
In order to obtain an optimum engine output and to protect
your health and the environment use unleaded fuel only.
For lubricating the engine use a two-stroke engine oil (quality
grade: JASO FC or ISO EGD), which is added to the fuel. The
engine has been designed for use of DOLMAR high-performance
two-stroke engine oil and a mixture ratio of only 50:1 to protect
the environment. In addition, a long service life and reliable operation with a minimum emission of exhaust gases are ensured.
DOLMAR high-performance two-stroke engine oil is available in
the following sizes to suit your individual requirements:
1 l
order number 980 008 107
100 ml order number 980 008 106
In case DOLMAR high-performance two-stroke engine oil is not
available, it is urgently recommended to use a mixture ratio of
40:1 with other two-stroke engine oils, as otherwise optimum
operation of the engine cannot be guaranteed.
Caution: Do not use ready-mixed fuel from petrol
stations.
The correct mixture ratio:
50:1 when using DOLMAR high-performance two-stroke
engine oil, i. e. mix 50 parts gasoline with 1 part oil.
40:1 when using other two-stroke engine oils, i. e. mix 40
parts gasoline with 1 part oil.
NOTE:
For preparing the fuel-oil mixture first mix the entire oil quantity with half of the fuel required, then add the remaining fuel.
Thoroughly shake the mixture before filling it into the hedge
trimmer tank.

It is not wise to add more engine oil than specified
to ensure safe operation. This will only result in a
higher production of combus-tion residues which
will pollute the environment and clog the exhaust
channel in the cylinder as well as the muffler. In
addition, fuel consumption will rise and performance will decrease.
The Storage of Fuel
Fuels have a limited storage life. Fuel and fuel mixtures age. Therefore fuel and fuel mixtures, which have
been stored for too long, can cause starting problems.
Purchase only that amount of fuel, which will be consumed over the next few months.
Store fuel safely in a dry place in approved containers only.
AVOID SKIN AND EYE CONTACT
Mineral oil products degrease your skin. If your skin
comes in contact with these substances repeatedly
and for an extended period of time, it will desiccate.
Various skin deseases may result. In addition, allergic
reactions are known to occur.
Eyes can be irritated by contact with oil. If oil comes into
your eyes, immediately wash them with clear water.
If your eyes are still irritated, see a doctor immediately!
fuel/oil mixture
Refuelling
FOLLOW THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS!
Be careful and cautious when handling fuels.
Refuel only with the engine switched off and cooled
down!
Thoroughly clean the area around the caps, to prevent dirt from
getting into the fuel tank.
Unscrew the tank cap and fill the tank with fuel mixture until
it reaches the bottom edge of the filler neck. Be careful not to
spill fuel when pouring.
Screw the tank cap back on hand tight.
After refuelling, clean the tank cap and area, and check
for leaks!
B
Starting position for the HT-2556 D
Start the trimmer only after it has been completely assembled!
Move at least 3 meters (10 feet) away from where you fuelled
the trimmer. Make sure you have a secure footing, and place
the trimmer on the ground (cutter to the left).
The tip of your right foot should be firmly placed in the rear
handguard.
Grasp the front grip firmly with your left hand and tip the trimmer
away from yourself until you feel resistance (the cutter will be
lifted slightly so that it is not touching the ground).
Do not use any other starting method!
Starting position for the HT-2576 E
Start the trimmer only after it has been completely assembled!
Move at least 3 meters (10 feet) away from where you fuelled
the trimmer. Make sure you have a secure footing, and place
the trimmer on the ground (cutter to the right).
The tip of your right foot should be firmly placed on the front
grip.
Grasp the rear grip firmly from the top with your left hand and
tip the trimmer away from yourself until you feel resistance
(the cutter will be lifted slightly so that it is not touching
the ground).
Do not use any other starting method!
C
Cold start:
Move the ON/OFF (I/O) switch (2) to position “I”.
Turn the starting lever (6) to the START position.
Press the fuel pump (5) several (7-10) times to supply fuel to
the carburetor.
Assume the starting position (see above under Starting position).
Pull the starter cable by the grip (3) out slowly until you feel
resistance (the piston is now before top dead center).
Pull quickly and powerfully until the engine starts.
Caution: Never pull the starter cable out more than about 50
cm (20“), and guide it back slowly by hand.
As soon as the engine is running, grasp the grip (the safety cutoff
(1) is actuated by the palm of the hand) and tap the throttle (4).
The starting lever (6) will move to the RUN position and the
engine will run in idle.
Warm starting:
Move the ON/OFF (I/O) switch (2) to position “I” and start the
engine. If necessary push the fuel pump (5) a few times.

These operations are identical for the HT-2576 E.
Switching off the engine
Move the ON/OFF (I/O) switch (2) to position “O” (
).
D
Adjusting the carburetor (idle)
The carburetor is an injection model with fixed nozzles. This
makes adjustment of the idle and main nozzle superfluous, and
these are impossible on this model.
If necessary, the idle speed can be adjusted with the adjusment
screw (8).
Idle speed correction is necessary if the blade moves in
idle (i.e. when the throttle is not actuated).
The blade must be completely stationary in idle!
Use a screwdriver (7, blade width 4 mm, part no. 944 340 001)
for this adjustment.
7
Let the engine warm up for 3-5 minutes before adjusting the
carburetor.
Avoid high engine speeds!
Adjusting the idle speed
Turning the adjustment screw (8) counter-clockwise:
Idle speed goes down.
Turnign the adjustment screw clockwise:
Idle speed goes up.
Caution: If the blade still does not come to a stop in idle
even after idle speed adjustment, do not work with the
trimmer under any circumstances. Take it to a DOLMAR
service centre!

Tips on trimming hedges
The procedure described here can be used very often and makes working easier. If a hedge has to be cut back very substantially,
it should be trimmed in two passes. The trapezoidal form shown prevents the lower portion of the hedge from thinning out due to
lack of light.
2
1
- First cut the hedge to the desired height (1). With practice,
it is possible to remove cut material from the hedge with a
swinging motion. To get a straight cut, stretch a string along
the hedge at the desired height.
- Trim the hedge to a trapezoidal shape (about 10 cm / 4“ in
at the top for every 1 m / 3’3“ of height), cutting from bottom
to top (2). In this way you avoid cut material falling down
into the area not yet cut.
4
3
- Round off the top edges of the hedge (3), and finally trim
the bottom edges back somewhat (4).
The best times to trim hedges are:
Broad-leaf hedges:
June and October
Fast-growing hedges:
About every 6 weeks starting in May
Coniferous hedges:
April and August
Environmental protection information
Do not use the hedge trimmer during times when people are likely to be resting.
Before trimming a hedge, check to make sure that no birds are nesting in it. If they are, wait until the young have left the nest before
trimming near that part of the hedge.
Dispose of cut material in an environment-friendly way, or compost it.
11
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning and care
Caution: Be especially careful when cleaning and caring
for the cutter (injury hazard!). Never touch the cutter with
bare hands. Always wear protective gloves!
STOP
General
CAUTION: Never do maintenance work near an open
flame. FIRE HAZARD!
CAUTION: Before doing any work on the trimmer,
always switch off the engine, pull the spark plug
cap (see Changing the spark plug) and wear protective gloves!
Do not attempt to repair a damaged cutter (bent,
broken)!
Clean the trimmer regularly and make sure all screw
fasteners are tight.
Regularly check the cutter for damage and clean it with a suitable brush or cloth.
If after extended use cutting performance is no longer satisfactory, the blade needs resharpening. Take it to a DOLMAR
service centre.
A
Adjusting the cutter slide play
STOP
CAUTION: Switch off the engine, pull the spark plug cap
and wear protective gloves!
The slide play needs adjustment when cuttings get stuck between
the blades or the play becomes excessive after extended use
through normal cutter wear.
Loosen nuts (1) one or two turns. Tighten screws (2) only slightly
(if necessary, loosen them beforehand).
Adjust all screws as follows: Loosen 1/4 turn and hold in this
position with screwdriver. Tighten nut (1).
NOTE: The play is correct when it is just possible to move
the disc under the screw head back and forth by hand. Then
lubricate the cutter with a few drops of oil.
Caution: If the play is insufficient, the cutter will heat up
and can become damaged.
B
STOP
Cleaning the air filter insert
- Push the tab (3) in the direction of the arrow and lift open
the air filter cover.
- Take out the foam filter insert.
Caution: To prevent eye injuries, do not blow dirt particles
out.
- If the insert is very dirty, wash it out with standard dishwashing liquid.
- Clean it often if it gets very dirty. The engine can only develop
its full power with a clean filter insert.
- Before putting the insert back in, clean out the interior of
the air filter with a brush. Do not allow dirt particles to get
into the induction opening of the carburetor!
- Let the filter insert dry thoroughly and put it back in the
filter.
C
12
Caution: If the filter insert is damaged, replace it immediately! Torn bits of fabric and large dirt particles can destry
the engine.
Replacing the spark plug
CAUTION:
Do not touch the spark plug or plug cap if the engine is
running (high voltage).
Switch off the engine before starting any maintenance work.
A hot engine can cause burns. Wear protective gloves!
The spark plug must be replaced in case of damage to the
insulator, electrode erosion (burn) or if the electrodes are very
dirty or oily.
Pull the plug cap (4) off the spark plug. Use only the combination
wrench supplied with the saw to remove the spark plug.
Electrode gap
The electrode gap must be 0,6 - 0,7.
D
Checking the ignition spark
Use insulated pliers to hold the loose spark plug (5), with the
spark plug cap firmly attached, against the engine housing (away
from the spark plug hole!).
Put the ON/OFF (I/O) switch in the “I” position.
Pull the starter cable hard.
If the function is correct, an ignition spark must be visible near
the electrodes.
CAUTION: Use only the following spark plug: NGK BPMR
7A.
E
Checking the muffler bolts / cleaning the exhaust outlet
STOP
Caution:
Do not tighten the muffler bolts when the engine is hot!
The muffler bolts (6) are directly accessible so they can be
checked for tightness. If loose, hand-tighten (caution: do not
over-tighten).

Replacing the suction head
The felt filter (8) of the suction head can become clogged.
It is recommended to replace the suction head once every
three months in order to ensure unimpeded fuel flow to the
carburetor.
To remove the suction head for replacement, pull it out through
the tank filler neck using a piece of wire bent at one end to
form a hook.
G
Lubricating the drive
The drive needs to be lubricated every 10 to 20 operating
hours.
Apply a grease gun at the lubrication opening (9) and press in
grease (SHELL ALVANIA RL3 or equivalent).

Service, spare parts and guarantee
Workshop service
The maintenance and repair of modern hedge trimmers as well as all safety devices require qualified technical training and a special
workshop equipped with special tools and testing devices.
All work not described in this Instruction Manual must be done only by a DOLMAR service centre.
The DOLMAR service centres have all the necessary equipment and skilled and experienced personnel, who can work out costeffective solutions and advise you in all matters.
Repair attempts by third parties or unauthorized persons will void the warranty.
Please contact your nearest service centre (list enclosed).
Spare parts
Reliable long-term operation, as well as the safety of your hedge trimmer, depend among other things on the quality of the spare
parts used. Use only original DOLMAR parts.
Only original spare parts and accessories guarantee the highest quality in material, dimensions, function and safety.
Original spare parts and accessories can be obtained from your local dealer. He will also have the spare part lists to determine the
required spare part numbers, and will be constantly informed about the latest improvements and spare part innovations.
Please bear in mind that if parts other than original DOLMAR spare parts are used, this will automatically invalidate the DOLMAR
product guarantee.

DOLMAR guarantees the highest quality and will therefore reimburse all costs for repair by replacement of damaged parts resulting
from material or production faults occurring within the guarantee period after purchase. Please note that in some countries particular
guarantee conditions may exist. If you have any questions, please contact your salesman, who is responsible for the guarantee of
the product.
Please note that we cannot accept any responsibility for damage caused by:
• Disregard of the instruction manual.
• Non-performance of the required maintenance and cleaning.
• Normal wear and tear.
• Obvious overloading due to permanent exceeding of the upper performance limits.
• Use of force, improper use, misuse or accidents.
• Damage from overheating due to dirt on the fan housing.
• Work on the hedge trimmer by unskilled persons or inappropriate repairs.
• Use of unsuitable spare parts or parts which are not original DOLMAR parts, insofar as they have caused the damage.
• Use of unsuitable or old oil.
• Damage related to conditions arising from lease or rent contracts.
