personal condition and safety equipment
warning
Edger users risk injury to themselves and others if the edger is used improperly and or safety precautions are not followed. Proper clothing and safety gear must be worn when operating an edger.
Physical Condition
Your judgment and physical dexterity may not be good:
• if you are tired or sick,
• if you are taking medication,
• if you have taken alcohol or drugs.
Operate unit only if you are physically and mentally well.
Eye Protection
Wear eye protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 or CE requirements whenever you operate the unit.
Hand Protection
Wear no-slip, heavy duty work gloves to improve your
grip on the edger handles. Gloves also reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your hands.
Hearing Protection
Proper Clothing
Wear snug fitting, durable clothing;
• Pants should have long legs, shirts with long
sleeves.
• DO NOT WEAR SHORTS,
• DO NOT WEAR TIES, SCARVES, JEWELRY.
Wear sturdy work shoes with non-skid soles;
• DO NOT WEAR OPEN TOED SHOES,
• DO NOT OPERATE UNIT BAREFOOTED.
Keep long hair away from engine and air intake.
Retain hair with cap or net.
Hot Humid Weather
Heavy protective clothing can increase operator fatigue, which may lead to heat stroke. Schedule heavy
work for early morning or late afternoon hours when
temperatures are cooler.
ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection whenever
unit is used.
Vibration and Cold
It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects the fingers of certain individuals, may be
brought about by exposure to vibration and cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling and burning sensations, followed by loss of color and numbness in the fingers. The following precautions are strongly recommended,
because the minimum exposure which might trigger the ailment is unknown.
• Keep your body warm, especially the head, neck, feet, ankles, hands, and wrists.
• Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous arm exercises during frequent work breaks, and also by not smoking.
• Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill each day with jobs where operating the unit or other hand-held power equipment is not required.
• If you experience discomfort, redness and swelling of the fingers, followed by whitening and loss of feeling, consult your physician before further exposing yourself to cold and vibration.
Power Edger
Operator's Manual
Repetitive Stress Injuries
It is believed that overusing the muscles and tendons of the fingers, hands, arms, and shoulders may cause soreness,
swelling, numbness, weakness, and extreme pain in those areas. Certain repetitive hand activities may put you at a high
risk for developing a Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). An extreme RSI condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), which
could occur when your wrist swells and squeezes a vital nerve that runs through the area. Some believe that prolonged
exposure to vibration may contribute to CTS. CTS can cause severe pain for months or even years.
To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following:
• Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended, or twisted position. Instead, try to maintain a straight wrist position. Also, when grasping,
use your whole hand, not just the thumb and index finger.
• Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest your hands.
• Reduce the speed and force with which you do the repetitive movement.
• Do exercises to strengthen the hand and arm muscles.
• Immediately stop using all power equipment and consult a doctor if
you feel tingling, numbness, or pain in the fingers, hands, wrists, or
arms. The sooner RSI/CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent
nerve and muscle damage can be prevented.
danger
Do not operate this product indoors or in inadequately ventilated
areas. Engine exhaust contains poisonous emissions and can cause
serious injury or death.
Read the Manual
• Provide all users of this equipment with the Operator's Manual and
Safety Manual for instructions on Safe Operation.
Clear the Work Area
• Spectators and fellow workers must be warned, and children and
animals prevented from coming nearer than 15 m (50 ft.) while the
unit is in use.
Keep a Firm Grip
• Hold the front and rear handles with both hands, with thumbs and
fingers tightly encircling the handles.
Keep a Solid Stance
• Maintain footing and balance at all times. Do not stand on slippery,
uneven or unstable surfaces. Do not work in odd positions or on ladders. Do not over reach.
Avoid Hot Surfaces
• Keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris. Avoid contact during

openings. Always stop engine, disconnect spark plug, and make sure all moving parts have come to a complete stop
before removing obstructions, clearing debris, or servicing unit.
WARNING
Operation of this equipment may create sparks that can start fires around dry vegetation. This unit is equipped with
a spark arrestor and a spark arrestor may be required. The operator should contact local fire agencies for laws or
regulations relating to fire prevention requirements.
fuel
NOTICE: Use of unmixed, improperly mixed, or fuel older than 90 days, (stale fuel), may cause hard starting,
poor performance, or severe engine damage and void the product warranty. Read and follow instructions in the
Storage section of this manual.
warning
Alternative fuels, such as E-15 (15% ethanol), E-85 (85% ethanol) or any fuels not meeting ECHO requirements
are NOT approved for use in ECHO 2-stroke gasoline engines. Use of alternative fuels may cause performance
problems, loss of power, overheating, fuel vapor lock, and unintended machine operation, including, but not limited
to, improper clutch engagement. Alternative fuels may also cause premature deterioration of fuel lines, gaskets,
carburetors and other engine components.
Fuel Requirements
Gasoline - Use 89 Octane [R+M/2] (mid grade or higher) gasoline known to be good quality. Gasoline may contain up to
10% Ethanol (grain alcohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether). Gasoline containing methanol (wood alcohol)
is NOT approved.
Two Stroke Oil - A two-stroke engine oil meeting ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. FC/FD Standards must
be used. Echo brand premium Power Blend X TM Universal 2-Stroke Oil meets these standards. Engine problems due to
inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. FC/FD certified oil, such as
Echo premium Power Blend X TM, will void the two-stroke engine warranty.
IMPORTANT
Echo premium Power Blend X TM Universal 2-Stroke Oil may be mixed at 50:1 ratio for application in all Echo engines sold in the past regardless of ratio specified in those manuals.
12
Handling Fuel
warning
Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling or serious personal injury may result.
•Use an approved fuel container.
•DO NOT smoke near fuel.
•DO NOT allow flames or sparks near fuel.
•Fuel tanks/cans may be under pressure. Always loosen fuel caps slowly allowing pressure to equalize.
•NEVER refuel a unit when the engine is HOT or RUNNING!
•DO NOT fill fuel tanks indoors. ALWAYS fill fuel tanks outdoors over bare ground.
• DO NOT overfill fuel tank. Wipe up spills immediately.
•Securely tighten fuel tank cap and close fuel container after refueling.
•Inspect for fuel leakage. If fuel leakage is found, do not start or operate unit until leakage is repaired.
•Move at least 3m (10 ft.) from refueling location before starting the engine.
Mixing Instructions

gasoline.
2. Add the proper amount of 2-stroke oil to gasoline.
3. Close container and shake to mix oil with gasoline.
4. Add remaining gasoline, close fuel container, and remix.
IMPORTANT
Spilled fuel is a leading cause of hydrocarbon emissions. Some
states may require the use of automatic fuel shut-off containers to
reduce fuel spillage.
After use
• DO NOT store a unit with fuel in its tank. Leaks can occur. Return
unused fuel to an approved fuel storage container.
Storage - Fuel storage laws vary by locality. Contact your local government for the laws affecting your area. As a precaution, store fuel in
an approved, airtight container. Store in a well-ventilated, unoccupied
building, away from sparks and flames.
IMPORTANT
Stored fuel ages. Do not mix more fuel than you expect to use in
thirty (30) days, ninety (90) days when a fuel stabilizer is added.
IMPORTANT
Stored two-stroke fuel may separate. ALWAYS shake fuel container thoroughly before each use.

operating techniques
WARNING
Engine exhaust IS HOT, and contains Carbon Monoxide (CO), a poison gas. Breathing CO can cause unconsciousness, serious injury, or death. Exhaust can cause serious burns. ALWAYS position unit so that exhaust is directed
away from your face and body.
1. Before edging, water the area to soften the ground to make edging
easier.
2 Before edging, check the area and remove all obstacles and objects
that could be thrown.
3. Plan to edge regularly to make it easier to keep a neat edge and to
avoid having to make more than one pass.
NOTE
Blade depth may have to be adjusted due to differences in height
between the hard surface and the top of the grass.
warning
Never adjust blade height with engine running, otherwise serious
personal injury may result.
WHEEL
4. Adjust the blade's depth of cut to produce a fine cut between sidewalk and grass using a minimum blade depth, usually with about
13 mm (1/2 in.) of the blade into the ground.
5. Before edging, plan your direction of travel so that the unit will
always be positioned on your right side and so that you walk on a
hard surface whenever possible.
6. Hold edger as shown.
warning
Before edging, be sure to read and understand the entire Operator's
Manual to avoid the chance of serious injury.
7. When starting to edge, run the engine at full throttle, and lower the
blade gently into the ground, being careful not to hit the concrete
with the blade.
8. Don't force the blade. Move as quickly as the blade will allow.
warning
The complete unit, specifically the drive shaft assembly and muffler
exhaust area may become very hot during use. Avoid contact during
and immediately after operation, otherwise serious personal injury
may result.

air filter
Level 1.
Tools required: 25 or 50 mm (1 or 2 in.) Cleaning brush
Parts required: REPOWERTM Air & Fuel Filter Kit.
1. Close choke (Cold Start Position [
]). This prevents dirt from
entering the carburetor throat when the air filter is removed. Brush
accumulated dirt from air cleaner area.
2. Remove air filter cover. Brush dirt from inside cover.
3. Remove air filter and lightly brush debris from filter. Replace filter
if it is damaged, fuel soaked, very dirty, or the rubber sealing edges
are deformed.
4. If filter can be reused, be certain it:
• Fits tightly in the air filter cavity.
• Is installed with the original side out.
5. Install air filter cover.
fuel filter
Level 1.
Tools required: 200-250 mm (8-10 in.) length of wire with one end bent into a hook. Clean rag, funnel, and an approved fuel container.
Parts required: REPOWERTM Air & Fuel Filter Kit.
DANGER
Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing
or handling.
1. Use a clean rag to remove loose dirt from around fuel cap and empty fuel tank.
2. Use the “fuel line hook” to pull the fuel line and filter from the tank.
3. Remove the filter from the line and install the new filter.

spark plug
Level 2.
Tools Required: T-Wrench, feeler gauge, soft metal brush.
Parts Required: REPOWERTM Tune-Up Kit IMPORTANT
Use only NGK BPM-8Y spark plug (BPMR-8Y in Canada) otherwise severe engine damage may occur.
1. Remove spark plug and check for fouling, worn and rounded center electrode.
2. Clean the plug or replace with a new one. DO NOT sand blast to
clean. Remaining sand will damage engine.
3. Adjust spark plug gap by bending outer electrode.
4. Tighten spark plug to 150-170 kgf • cm (130-150 in • lbf).
cooling system
Level 2.
Tools required: 4 mm hex wrench, 25 or 50 mm (1 or 2 in.) cleaning brush.
Parts Required: None if you are careful.
IMPORTANT
To maintain proper engine operating temperatures, cooling air must pass freely through the cylinder fin area. This flow of air carries combustion heat away from the engine.
Overheating and engine seizure can occur when:
• Air intakes are blocked, preventing cooling air from reaching the
cylinder.
• Dust and grass build up on the outside of the cylinder. This build up insulates the engine and prevents the heat from leaving.
Removal of cooling passage blockages or cleaning of cooling fins is
considered “Normal Maintenance”. Any failure attributed to lack of
