GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Important
HEARING PROTECTION
Wear hearing protection that provides
adequate noise reduction.
IMPORTANT! The machine is only designed
for trimming grass.
The only accessories you can operate with
this engine unit are the cutting attachments
we recommend in the chapter on Technical
data.
Never use the machine if you are tired, if you
have drunk alcohol, or if you are taking medication that could affect your vision, your
judgement or your co--ordination.
Wear personal protective equipment. See instructions under the heading Personal
protective equipment.
Never use a machine that has been modified
in any way from its original specification.
Never use a machine that is faulty. Carry out
the checks, maintenance and service instructions described in this manual. Some maintenance and service measures must be carried
out by trained and qualified specialists. See
instructions under the heading Maintenance.
All covers and guards must be fitted before
starting. Make sure the spark plug cap and
lead are not damaged. Otherwise you could
get an electric shock.
The machine operator must ensure that no
people or animals come closer than 15
metres while working. When several operators are working in the same area, the safety
distance should be at least 15 metres.
EYE PROTECTION
Always wear approved eye protection. If
you use a visor then you must also wear
approved protective goggles. Approved
protective goggles must comply with EN
166 in EU countries.
GLOVES
Gloves should be worn when necessary,
e.g., when fitting cutting attachments.
WARNING: Never allow children
to use or be in the vicinity of the
machine. As the machine is equipped
with a spring-- loaded stop switch and
can be started by low speed and
force on the starter handle, even
small children under some circumstances can produce the force necessary to start the machine. This can
mean a risk of serious personal injury. Therefore remove the spark plug
cap when the machine is not under
close supervision.
BOOTS
Wear 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,
long pants. Do not wear jewelry, shorts
sandals or go barefoot. Secure hair so it is
above shoulder level.
Personal protective equipment
IMPORTANT! Whenever you use a clearing saw, brushcutter or trimmer you must
wear personal protective equipment that is
approved by the authorities. Personal
protective equipment does not eliminate
the risk of accidents, but it can reduce the
effects of an injury in the event of an accident. Ask your dealer for help when
choosing protective equipment.
FIRST AID KIT
A first aid kit should be carried by operators of clearing saws, brushcutters or trimmers.
WARNING: Listen out for warning signals or shouts when you are
wearing hearing protection. Always
remove your hearing protection as
soon as the engine stops.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Machine’s safety equipment
This section describes the machine’s safety equipment, its purpose, and how checks
and maintenance should be carried out to
ensure that it operates correctly. See the
“What is what” section to locate where this
equipment is positioned on your machine.
The life span of the machine can be reduced and the risk of accidents can increase if machine maintenance is not carried out correctly and if service and/or repairs are not carried out professionally. If
you need further information please contact
your nearest service workshop.
Press the throttle lock and make sure it returns to its original position when you release it.
IMPORTANT! All servicing and repair work
on the machine requires special training. This
is especially true of the machine’s safety
equipment. If your machine fails any of the
checks described below you must contact
your service agent. When you buy any of our
products we guarantee the availability of professional repairs and service. If the retailer
who sells your machine is not a servicing
dealer, ask him for the address of your nearest service agent.
Check that the throttle control and throttle
lock move freely and that the return springs
work properly.
WARNING: Never use a machine
that has faulty safety equipment!
Follow the control, maintenance
and service instructions described
in this section. If your machine fails
any of these checks contact your
service agent to get it repaired.
See instructions under the heading Start.
Start the machine and apply full throttle.
Release the throttle and check that the
cutting attachment stops and remains at a
standstill. If the cutting attachment rotates
with the throttle in the idle position then the
carburettor idle setting must be checked.
See instructions under the heading
Maintenance.
Throttle lock
The throttle lock is designed to prevent accidental operation of the throttle control.
When you press the lock (A) (i.e. when you
grasp the handle) it releases the throttle
control (B). When you release the handle,
the throttle control and the throttle lock both
move back to their original positions. This
movement is controlled by two independent
return springs. This arrangement means
that the throttle control is automatically
locked at the idle setting.
A
Stop switch
Make sure the engine stops when you push
and hold the stop switch.
B
Make sure the throttle control is locked at
the idle setting when the throttle lock is released.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
In countries that have a warm and dry
climate there is a significant risk of fire.
We therefore fit certain mufflers with a spark
arrestor mesh. Check whether the muffler
on your machine is fitted with this kind of
mesh.
Cutting attachment guard
This guard is intended to prevent loose
objects from being thrown towards the
operator. The guard also protects the
operator from accidental contact with the
cutting attachment.
Muffler bolts
For mufflers, it is very important that you
follow the instructions on checking, maintaining, and servicing your machine.
Never use a machine that has a faulty
muffler.
Check that the guard is undamaged and not
cracked. Replace the guard if it has been
exposed to impact or is cracked.
Always use the recommended guard for the
cutting attachment you are using. See the
“Technical data” section.
WARNING: Never use a cutting
attachment without an approved
guard. See the section on “Technical
data”. If an incorrect or faulty guard
is fitted this can cause serious
personal injury.
Regularly check that the muffler is securely
attached to the machine.
Use of incorrectly wound trimmer line or an
incorrect cutting attachment increases the
level of vibration.
WARNING: Overexposure to
vibration can lead to circulatory
damage or nerve damage in people
who have impaired circulation.
Contact your doctor if you experience symptoms of overexposure to
vibration. Such symptoms include
numbness, loss of feeling, tingling,
pricking, pain, loss of strength,
changes in skin color or condition.
These symptoms normally appear
in the fingers, hands or wrists. The
risk increases at low temperatures.
WARNING: Mufflers get very hot
during use and remain so for some
time after stopping. This also applies at idle speed. Contact can result in burns to the skin. Remember
the risk of fire!
WARNING: The inside of the
muffler contain chemicals that may
be carcinogenic. Avoid contact with
these elements in the event of a
damaged muffler.
Muffler
WARNING: Bear in mind that:
Engine exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, which can cause
carbon monoxide poisoning. For
this reason you should not start or
run the machine indoors, or anywhere that is poorly ventilated.
The exhaust fumes from the engine
are hot and may contain sparks
which can start a fire. Never start
the machine indoors or near combustible material!
The muffler is designed to reduce the noise
level and to direct the exhaust gases away
from the operator.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Cutting equipment
Trimmer head
This section describes how to choose and
maintain your cutting equipment in order to:
S Obtain maximum cutting performance.
S Extend the life of cutting equipment.
IMPORTANT!
Always ensure the trimmer line is wound
tightly and evenly around the drum, otherwise the machine will generate harmful
vibration.
IMPORTANT!
Only use cutting attachments with the guards
we recommend! See the section on
“Technical data”.
Refer to the instructions for the cutting attachment to check the correct way to load the
trimmer line and the correct line diameter.
S Only use the recommended cutting attachments. See the section on “Technical
data”.
WARNING: Always stop the engine before doing any work on the
cutting attachment. This continues
to rotate even after the throttle has
been released. Ensure that the
cutting attachment has stopped
completely and disconnect the
lead from the spark plug before
you start to work on it.
S Smaller machines generally require small
trimmer heads and vice versa. This is because when clearing using trimmer line
the engine must throw out the trimmer
line radially from the trimmer head and
overcome the resistance of the grass
being cleared.
S The length of the trimmer line is also important. A longer trimmer line requires
greater engine power than a shorter
trimmer line of the same diameter.
S Make sure that the cutter on the trimmer
guard is intact. This is used to cut the
trimmer line to the correct length.
S To increase the life of the trimmer line it
can be soaked in water for a couple of
days. This will make the line tougher so
that it lasts longer.
WARNING: A faulty cutting attachment may increase the risk of
accidents.

FUEL HANDLING
Fuel safety
Petrol
Never start the machine:
1. If you have spilled fuel on it. Wipe off the
spillage and allow remaining fuel to evaporate.
2. If you have spilled fuel on yourself or your
clothes, change your clothes. Wash any
part of your body that has come in contact
with fuel. Use soap and water.
3. If the machine is leaking fuel. Check regularly for leaks from the fuel cap and fuel
lines.
CAUTION! Always use a good quality petrol/oil mixture (at least 90 octane).
Use low--emission petrol, also known as
alkylate petrol, if it is available.
Transport and storage
S Store and transport the machine and fuel
so that there is no risk of any leakage or
fumes coming into contact with sparks or
naked flames, for example, from electrical machinery, electric motors, electrical
relays/switches or boilers.
S When storing and transporting fuel always use approved containers intended
for this purpose.
S When storing the machine for long periods the fuel tank must be emptied. Contact your local petrol station to find out
where to dispose of excess fuel.
S Ensure the machine is cleaned and that
a complete service is carried out before
long--term storage.
S In order to prevent unintentional starting
of the engine, the spark plug cap must
always be removed during long--term
storage, if the machine is not under
close supervision and when performing
all service measures.
S The lowest octane recommended is 90.
If you run the engine on a lower octane
than 90, it can result in knocking. This
gives rise to a high engine temperature,
which can result in serious engine damage.
S When working at continuous high revs, a
higher octane rating is recommended.
Two--stroke oil
S For best results and performance, use
HUSQVARNA two--stroke oil, which is
specially formulated for our two--stroke
engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%).
S If HUSQVARNA two--stroke oil is not available, you may use another two-stroke oil of
good quality that is intended for air cooled
engines. Contact your dealer when selecting an oil. Mixing ratio 1:33 (3%).
S Never use two--stroke oil intended for
water--cooled outboard engines,
sometimes referred to as outboard oil.
S Never use oil intended for four--stroke
engines.
WARNING: Take care when handling fuel. Bear in mind the risk of
fire, explosion and inhaling fumes.

WORKING TECHNIQUES
General working instructions
WARNING: Neither the operator
of the machine nor anyone else
may attempt to remove the cut material while the engine is running or
the cutting equipment is rotating,
as this can result in serious injury.
Stop the engine and cutting equipment before you remove material
that has wound around the blade
shaft as otherwise there is a risk of
injury. The bevel gear can get hot
during use and may remain so for a
while afterwards. You could get
burned if you touch it.
IMPORTANT!
This section describes the basic safety precautions for working with trimmers. If you
encounter a situation where you are uncertain how to proceed you should ask an expert. Contact your servicing dealer.
Avoid all usage which you consider to be
beyond your capability.
You must understand the difference between
forestry clearing, grass clearing and grass
trimming before use.
Basic safety rules
1. Look around you:
S To ensure that people, animals or other
things cannot affect your control of the
machine.
S To ensure that people, animals, etc.,
do not come into contact with the cutting attachment or loose objects that
are thrown out by the cutting attachment.
S CAUTION! Do not use the machine
unless you are able to call for help in
the event of an accident.
2. Do not use the machine in bad weather,
such as dense fog, heavy rain, strong
wind, intense cold, etc. Working in bad
weather is tiring and often brings added
risks, such as icy ground, unpredictable
felling direction, etc.
3. Make sure you can move and stand safely.
Check the area around you for possible obstacles (roots, rocks, branches, ditches, etc.)
in case you have to move suddenly. Take
great care when working on sloping ground.
WARNING: Watch out for
thrown objects. Always wear approved eye protection. Never lean
over the cutting attachment guard.
Stones, rubbish, etc. can be thrown
up into the eyes causing blindness
or serious injury. Keep unauthorised persons at a distance. Children, animals, onlookers and helpers should be kept outside the
safety zone of 15 m. Stop the machine immediately if anyone approaches. Never swing the machine around without first checking
behind you to make sure noone is
within the safety zone.
Basic working techniques
S Always slow the engine to idle speed after
each working operation. Long periods at
full throttle without any load on the engine
can lead to serious engine damage.
WARNING: Sometimes branches
or grass get caught between the
guard and cutting attachment.
Always stop the engine before
cleaning.
Grass trimming with a trimmer head
Trimming
S Hold the trimmer head just above the ground
at an angle. It is the end of the trimmer line
that does the work. Let the trimmer line work
at its own pace. Never press the trimmer
line into the area to be cut.
4. Switch off the engine before moving to
another area.
5. Never put the machine down with the engine
running or while the cutting attachment is
rotating.
14
S The trimmer line can easily remove grass
and weeds up against walls, fences, trees
and borders, however it can also damage
sensitive bark on trees and bushes, and
damage fence posts.
WORKING TECHNIQUES
S Reduce the risk of damaging plants by
shortening the trimmer line to 4--4 1/2 inches
(10--12 cm) and reducing the engine speed.
S When trimming you should use less than
full throttle so that the trimmer line lasts
longer and to reduce the wear on the
trimmer head.
Clearing
Sweeping
S The fan effect of the rotating line can be
used for quick and easy clearing up.
Hold the trimmer line parallel to and
above the area to be swept and move
the tool to and fro.
S The clearing technique removes all unwanted vegetation. Keep the trimmer
head just above the ground and tilt it. Let
the end of the trimmer line strike the
ground around trees, posts, statues and
the like. CAUTION! This technique
increases the wear on the trimmer line.
S When cutting and sweeping you should
use full throttle to obtain the best results.
WARNING: Neither the operator
of the machine nor anyone else may
attempt to remove the cut material
while the engine is running or the
trimmer line is rotating, as this can
result in serious injury. Stop the
engine and trimmer head before you
remove material that has wound
around the drive shaft as otherwise
there is a risk of injury. The bevel
gear can get hot during use and may
remain so for a while afterwards. You
could get burned if you touch it.
S The trimmer line wears quicker and must
be fed forward more often when working
against stones, brick, concrete, metal
fences, etc., than when coming into contact with trees and wooden fences.
Cutting
WARNING: Watch out for thrown
objects. Always wear eye protection.
Never lean over the cutting attachment guard. Stones, rubbish, etc.
can be thrown up into the eyes
causing blindness or serious injury.
Keep unauthorized persons at a distance. Children, animals, onlookers
and helpers should be kept outside
the safety zone of 15 m.
Stop the machine immediately if
anyone approaches.
S The trimmer is ideal for cutting grass that
is difficult to reach using a normal lawn
mower. Keep the trimmer line parallel to
the ground when cutting. Avoid pressing
the trimmer head against the ground as
this can ruin the lawn and damage the
tool.
S Do not allow the trimmer head to con-stantly come into contact with the ground
during normal cutting. Constant contact
of this type can cause damage and wear
to the trimmer head.

MAINTENANCE
The owner is responsible for the performance of all required maintenance as
defined in the operator’s manual.
Idle Speed
Screw--T
Carburetor
Your Husqvarna product has been designed
and manufactured to specifications that reduce harmful emissions. After the engine
has used 8--10 tanks of fuel, the engine will
be run--in. To ensure that it continues to run
at peak performance and to minimize harmful exhaust emissions after the run--in period, ask your servicing dealer to adjust your
carburetor.
WARNING: If the idle speed cannot be adjusted so that the cutting
attachment stops, contact your servicing dealer. Do not use the machine until it has been correctly adjusted or repaired.
WARNING: The complete clutch,
clutch cover, and shaft must be
fitted before the machine is started,
otherwise parts could come loose
and cause personal injury.
Unit/Maintenance Safety
Disconnect the spark plug before performing maintenance, except carburetor adjustments.
Function
Muffler
S The carburetor governs the engine’s
speed via the throttle control. Air and fuel
are mixed in the carburetor.
S The T--screw regulates the throttle setting
at idle speed. If the T--screw is turned
clockwise this gives a higher idle speed;
turning it counterclockwise gives a lower
idle speed.
The muffler is designed to reduce the noise
level and to direct the exhaust gases away
from the operator. The exhaust gases are
hot and can contain sparks, which may
cause fire if directed against dry and combustible material.
Basic setting
S The basic carburetor settings are adjusted during testing at the factory. Fine
adjustment should be carried out by a
skilled technician.
CAUTION! If the cutting attachment rotates
when the engine is idling the idle adjustment
screw T should be turned counterclockwise
until the cutting attachment stops.
Rec. idle speed:
See “Technical data” section.
Recommended max. speed:
See “Technical data” section.
Mufflers are equipped with a special spark
arrestor mesh. You should clean the mesh
at least once a month. This is best done
with a wire brush. If the mesh is damaged
it should be replaced. A blocked mesh
will cause the machine to overheat and result in damage to the cylinder and piston.
Fine adjustment of the idle speed--T
Adjust the idle speed using the idle adjustment screw--T if it is necessary to readjust.
First, turn the idle adjustment screw--T
clockwise until the cutting attachment starts
to rotate. Then, turn the screw counterclockwise until the cutting attachment stops.
The idle speed is correctly adjusted when
the engine will run smoothly in every position. The idle speed should also be well
below the speed at which the cutting attachment starts to rotate.

Spark arrestor mesh
CAUTION! Never use a machine that has
a faulty or loose muffler. Ensure the muffler
bolts are tight.

MAINTENANCE
Two--piece shaft
WARNING: Mufflers get very hot
during use and remain so for some
time after stopping. This also applies at idle speed. Contact can result in burns to the skin. Remember
the risk of fire!
The drive shaft end in the lower shaft
should be lubricated with grease every 30
hours. There is a risk that the drive shaft
ends (splined coupling) will seize if they
are not lubricated regularly.
WARNING: The inside of the
muffler contain chemicals that may
be carcinogenic. Avoid contact with
these elements in the event of a
damaged muffler.
WARNING: Bear in mind that:
Engine exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, which can cause
carbon monoxide poisoning. For
this reason you should not start or
run the machine indoors, or anywhere that is poorly ventilated.
The exhaust fumes from the engine
are hot and may contain sparks
which can start a fire. Never start
the machine indoors or near combustible material!
Air filter
The air filter must be regularly cleaned to
remove dust and dirt in order to avoid:
S Carburetor malfunctions
S Starting problems
S Loss of engine power
S Unnecessary wear to engine parts
S Excessive fuel consumption
Spark plug
The spark plug condition is influenced by:
S Incorrect carburetor adjustment.
S An incorrect fuel mixture (too much or incorrect type of oil).
S A dirty air filter.
These factors cause deposits on the spark
plug electrodes, which may result in operating problems and starting difficulties.
If the machine is low on power, difficult to
start or runs poorly at idle speed: always
check the spark plug first before taking
any further action. If the spark plug is dirty,
clean it and check that the electrode gap is
0,6 mm. The spark plug should be replaced
after about a month in operation or earlier if
necessary.
0,6 mm
Clean the filter every 25 hours, or more
regularly if conditions are exceptionally
dusty.
Cleaning the air filter
Remove the air filter cover and take out the
filter. Wash it clean in warm, soapy water.
Rinse thoroughly. Ensure that the filter is dry
before refitting it.
An air filter that has been in use for a long
time cannot be cleaned completely. The
filter must therefore be replaced with a new
one at regular intervals. A damaged air
filter must always be replaced.
CAUTION! Always use the recommended
spark plug type! Use of the wrong spark
plug can damage the piston/cylinder.

MAINTENANCE
Bevel gear
The bevel gear is filled with the right quantity of grease at the factory. However, before using the machine you should check
that the bevel gear is filled three--quarters
full with grease. Use HUSQVARNA special
grease.
The grease in the bevel gear does not normally need to be changed except if repairs
are carried out.
