personal condition AND safety equipment
WARNING
Power PrunerTM users risk injury to themselves and others if the Power PrunerTM is used improperly and or safety
precautions are not followed. Proper clothing and safety gear must be worn when operating a Power PrunerTM.
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.
Hearing Protection
ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection whenever
unit is used.
Proper Clothing
When trimming overhead, always wear head protection
meeting ANSI Z89.1 or CE requirements with a full face
shield. Head protection with full face shield will help
protect you from falling branches and debris.
Wear snug fitting, durable protective clothing; chain saw
safety pants or chaps are recommended.
• Pants should have long legs, shirts with long sleeves.
• DO NOT WEAR SHORTS,
• DO NOT WEAR TIES, SCARVES, JEWELRY.
Wear sturdy protective safety shoes or boots with nonskid 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.
Hand Protection
Hot Humid Weather
Eye Protection
Wear eye protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 or CE requirements whenever you operate the unit
Face and Head Protection
Wear no-slip, heavy duty work gloves to improve your
grip on the unit handles. Gloves also reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your hands.
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.
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 PrunerTM
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
All over head electrical conductors and communications wires can
have electricity flow with high voltages. This unit is not insulated
against electrical current. Never touch wires directly or indirectly
when pruning, otherwise serious injury or death may result.
warning
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 Manuals
• Provide all operators of this equipment with the Operator's Manual,
and instructions for 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.
Use Proper Clothing & Equipment
• Always wear head protection with full face shield to help protect
against falling branches and debris.
Keep A Firm Grip
• Grip Power PrunerTM with both hands with thumbs and fingers encircling the handle, and shaft tube.
5
6
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 overreach.
• Operate the Power PrunerTM only from the ground or out of an approved bucket lift.
• Always evaluate the branches to be pruned for hazards such as loose
dead branches which may fall and strike the operator or helpers.
Remove hazards before pruning.
• Plan retreat path from falling objects.
• Cut branches bounce when striking ground.
• Check that shoulder harness is adjusted for safe, comfortable operation. See picture at right for proper adjustment.
• Turn the Power PrunerTM off when moving from tree to tree.
• Avoid any contact with saw chain.
Avoid Hot Surfaces
• Keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris. Avoid contact during
and immediately after operation.
kickback
warning
Kickback can lead to dangerous loss of control of the Power PrunerTM and result in serious injury to the operator or
any one standing close by. Hold the Power PrunerTM firmly with both hands with thumbs and fingers encircling the
front and rear handles. Be aware of the down and outward path the pruner will take after the cut is made.
Kickback may occur when the moving saw chain at the nose or tip of
the guide bar touches an object, or when the wood closes in and pinches
the saw chain in the cut. In some cases this may cause a lightning-fast
reverse action, kicking the guide bar and saw chain up and back or
down and back towards the operator. Either of these reactions may
cause the operator to lose control of the Power PrunerTM which could
result in serious personal injury.
With a basic understanding of kickback, you can reduce or eliminate
the element of surprise which contributes to accidents.
Avoid contact of the guide bar tip with any object while the saw chain
is moving.
Cut only wood. Avoid striking concrete, metal, wire, or other obstructions which could cause kickback or damage to the saw chain.
If the saw chain does strike a foreign object, immediately stop the engine, inspect and repair the Power PrunerTM if necessary.

Operation
WARNING
Moving parts can amputate fingers or cause severe injuries. Keep hands, clothing and loose objects away from all
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.
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.
fuel
WARNING
Alternative fuels, such as E-20 (20% 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/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. FC/FDcertified oil, such as Echo premium
Power Blend X TM, will void the two-stroke engine warranty. (Emission related parts only are covered for two years,
regardless of two-stroke oil used, per the statement listed in the Emission Defect Warranty Explanation.)
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.
Handling Fuel
DANGER
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.
16
Mixing Instructions
1. Fill an approved fuel container with half of the required amount of
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.

pruning 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 blow
exhaust away from your face and body.
The Power Pruner is designed for light to medium trimming of limbs
and branches up to 203 mm (8 in.) in diameter. Follow these tips for
successful operation.
TM
• Plan cut carefully. Check direction branch will fall.
• Plan retreat path from falling branch. Cut branches bounce when
striking ground.
• Long branches should be removed in several pieces.
• Do not stand directly beneath branch being cut.
• When ready to cut:
Hold "cutting shoe" against branch. This will prevent whipping of the
branch. DO NOT use back and forth sawing action.
• Look out for branch immediately behind the branch being cut. If saw
chain hits rear branch damage to saw chain may occur.

Maintenance
WARNING
Moving parts can amputate fingers or cause severe injuries. Keep hands, clothing and loose objects away from all
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.
Your ECHO Power PrunerTM is designed to provide many hours of trouble free service. Regular scheduled maintenance
will help your pruner achieve that goal. If you are unsure or are not equipped with the necessary tools, you may want to
take your unit to an ECHO Service Dealer for maintenance. To help you decide whether you want to DO-IT-YOURSELF or have the ECHO Dealer do it, each maintenance task has been graded. If the task is not listed see your ECHO
Dealer for repairs.

spark plug
Level 2.
Tools required: 10x19mm (13/32x3/4in) T-wrench, Feeler gauge, Soft metal brush
Parts Required: Spark Plug NGK BPM-8Y
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 0.65mm (0.026 in.) by bending outer electrode.

cooling system cleaning
Level 2.
Tools required: 4 mm Hex wrench, Cleaning brush 25 - 50 mm (1 - 2 in.)
Parts Required: None.
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
maintenance is not warranted.

carburetor adjustment
Engine Break-In
New engines must be operated a minimum duration of two tanks of fuel
break-in before carburetor adjustments can be made. During the breakin period your engine performance will increase and exhaust emissions
will stabilize. Idle speed can be adjusted as required.
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting,
emission, and durability performance up to 1,100 feet mean sea level
(MSL) (96.0 kPa and below). To maintain proper engine operation and
emission compliance above 1,100 feet MSL the carburetor may need to
be adjusted by an authorized ECHO service dealer.
Important
If the engine is adjusted for operation above 1,100 feet MSL, the
carburetor must be re-adjusted when operating the engine below
1,100 feet MSL, otherwise severe engine damage can result.
Level 2.
Tools required: Screwdriver, Tachometer (ECHO P/N 99051130017).
