INTR ODUCTION

Dear Customer ,

Cong ratulations on your choice to buy a Husqvarna product! Husqvarna is based on a tradition that dates back to 1689, when the Swedish King Karl XI ordered the construction of a factory on the banks of the Husqvarna River, for production of muskets. The location was logical, since water power was harnessed from the Huskvarna River to create the waterpowered plant. During the more than 300 years of beeing, the Husqvarna factory has produced a lot of different products, from wood stoves to modern kitchen appliances, sewing machines, bicycles, motorcycles etc. In 1956, the first motor driven lawn mowers appeared, followed by chain saws in 1959, and it is within this area Husqvarna is working today.

Today Husqvarna is one of the leading manufacturers in the world of forest and garden products, with quality as our highest priority. The business concept is to develop, manufacture and market motor driven products for forestry and gardening as well as for building and construction industry. Husqvarna

′ s aim is also to be in the front edge according to ergonomics, usability, security and environmental protection. That is the reason why we have developed many different features to provide our products within these areas.

We are convinced that you will appreciate with great satisfaction the quality and performance of our product for a very long time to come. The purchase of one of our products gives you access to professional help with repairs and service whenever this may be necessary. If the retailer who sells your machine is not one of our authorised dealers, ask for the address of your nearest service workshop.

It is our wish that you will be satisfied with your product and that it will be your companion for a long time. Think of this operator

′ s manual as a valuable document. By following its

content (using, service, maintenance etc) the life span and the second-hand value of the machine can be extended. If you will sell this machine, make sure that the buyer will get the operator

′ s manual.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Cutting equipment

This section describes how to choose and maintain your cutting equipment in order to:

• Reduce the risk of blade thrust.

• Obtain maximum cutting performance.

• Extend the life of cutting equipment.

General rules

Only use cutting attachments with the guards we recommend! See the chapter on Technical data.

IMPORTANT!

Only use cutting attachments with the guards we recommend! See the chapter on Technical data.

Refer to the instructions for the cutting attachment to check the correct way to load the cord and the correct cord diameter.

Keep the teeth of the blade correctly sharpened! Follow our recommendations. Also refer to the instructions on the blade packaging.

Keep the teeth of the blade correctly sharpened! Follow our instructions and use the recommended file gauge. An incorrectly sharpened or damaged blade increases the risk of accidents.

!

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

HT lead from the spark plug before you start to work on it.

Check the cutting attachment for damage or cracks. A damaged cutting attachment should always be replaced.

!

WARNING! Using an incorrect cutting attachment or an incorrectly sharpened blade increases the risk of blade thrust.

Cutting equipment

Grass blades and grass cutters are intended for cutting coarse grass.

Sharpening grass cutters and grass blades

• See the cutting attachment packaging for correct sharpening instructions. Sharpen blades and cutters using a single-cut flat file.

• Sharpen all edges equally to maintain the balance of the blade.

A trimmer head is intended for trimming grass.

!

WARNING! Always discard a blade that is bent, twisted, cracked, broken or damaged in any other way. Never attempt to straighten a twisted blade so that it can be reused. Only use original blades of the specified type.

10 – English

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Trimmer head

IMPORTANT!

Always ensure the trimmer cord is wound tightly and evenly around the drum, otherwise the machine will generate harmful vibration.

• Only use the recommended trimmer heads and trimmer cords. These have been tested by the manufacturer to suit a particular engine size. This is especially important when a fully automatic trimmer head is used. Only use the recommended cutting attachment. See the chapter on Technical data.

• Smaller machines generally require small trimmer heads and vice versa. This is because when clearing using a cord the engine must throw out the cord radially from the trimmer head and overcome the resistance of the grass being cleared.

• The length of the cord is also important. A longer cord requires greater engine power than a shorter cord of the same diameter.

• Make sure that the cutter on the trimmer guard is intact. This is used to cut the cord to the correct length.

• To increase the life of the cord it can be soaked in water for a couple of days. This will make the line tougher so that it lasts longer.

FUEL HANDLING

WARNING! Take care when handling fuel.

Bear in mind the risk of fire, explosion and inhaling fumes.

Fuel

CAUTION! The machine is equipped with a two-stroke engine and must always been run using a mixture of petrol and two-stroke engine oil. It is important to accurately measure the amount of oil to be mixed to ensure that the correct mixture is obtained. When mixing small amounts of fuel, even small inaccuracies can drastically affect the ratio of the mixture.

WARNING! Fuel and fuel fumes are highly inflammable and can cause serious injury when inhaled or allowed to come in contact with the skin. For this reason observe caution when handling fuel and make sure there is adequate ventilation.

Petrol

20

CAUTION! Always use a quality petrol/oil mixture at least

90 octane (RON). If your machine is equipped with a catalytic converter (see chapter on Technical data) always use a good quality unleaded petrol/oil mixture. Leaded petrol will destroy the catalytic converter.

Use low-emission petrol, also known as alkylate petrol, if it is available.

• The lowest octane recommended is 90 (RON). If you run the engine on a lower octane grade than 90 socalled knocking can occur. This gives rise to a high engine temperature, which can result in serious engine damage.

• When working at continuous high revs a higher octane rating is recommended.

Two-stroke oil

• For best results and performance use HUSQVARNA two-stroke engine oil, which is specially formulated for our air-cooled two-stroke engines.

• Never use two-stroke oil intended for water-cooled engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil (rated

TCW).

• Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.

• A poor oil quality and/or too high oil/fuel ratio may jeopardise function and decrease the life time of catalytic converters.

• Mixing ratio

1:50 (2%) with HUSQVARNA two-stroke oil.

1:33 (3%) with oils class JASO FB or ISO EGB formulated for air-cooled, two-stroke engines.

FUEL HANDLING

Mixing

• Always mix the petrol and oil in a clean container intended for fuel.

• Always start by filling half the amount of the petrol to be used. Then add the entire amount of oil. Mix

(shake) the fuel mixture. Add the remaining amount of petrol.

• Mix (shake) the fuel mixture thoroughly before filling the machine’s fuel tank.

Fuelling

!

WARNING! Taking the following precautions, will lessen the risk of fire:

Do not smoke or place hot objects near fuel.

Always shut off the engine before refuelling.

Always stop the engine and let it cool for a few minutes before refuelling.

When refuelling, open the fuel cap slowly so that any excess pressure is released gently.

Tighten the fuel cap carefully after refuelling.

Always move the machine away from the refuelling area before starting.

• Do not mix more than one month’s supply of fuel at a time.

• If the machine is not used for some time the fuel tank should be emptied and cleaned.

• Always use a fuel container with an anti-spill valve.

• Clean the area around the fuel cap. Contamination in the tank can cause operating problems.

• Ensure that the fuel is well mixed by shaking the container before filling the tank.

General working instructions

6 Always hold the machine with both hands. Hold the machine on the right side of your body.

IMPORTANT!

This section describes the basic safety precautions for working with clearing saws and trimmers.

If you encounter a situation where you are uncertain how to proceed you should ask an expert. Contact your dealer or your service workshop.

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:

• To ensure that people, animals or other things cannot affect your control of the machine.

• 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.

• CAUTION! Do not use the machine unless you are able to call for help in the event of an accident.

2 Inspect the working area. Remove all loose objects, such as stones, broken glass, nails, steel wire, string, etc. that could be thrown out or become wrapped around the cutting attachment.

3 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.

4 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.

7 Keep the cutting attachment below waist level.

8 Switch off the engine before moving to another area.

Fit the transport guard before carrying or transporting the equipment any distance.

9 Never put the machine down with the engine running unless you have it in clear sight.

!

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 burnt if you touch it.

!

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.

5 Keep a good balance and a firm foothold.

Basic working techniques

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.

!

!

WORKING TECHNIQUES

WARNING! Sometimes branches or grass get caught between the guard and cutting attachment. Always stop the engine before cleaning.

WARNING! Machines fitted with saw blades or grass blades can be thrown violently to the side when the blade comes into contact with a fixed object.

This is called blade thrust. A blade thrust can be violent enough to cause the machine and/or operator to be propelled in any direction, and possibly lose control of the machine. Blade thrust can occur without warning if the machine snags, stalls or binds. Blade thrust is more likely to occur in areas where it is difficult to see the material being cut.

Avoid cutting with the area of the blade between the 12 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions. Because of the speed of rotation of the blade, blade thrust can occur if you attempt to cut thick stems with this area of the blade.

• Try to work rhythmically. Stand firmly with your feet apart. Move forward after the return stroke and stand firmly again.

• Let the support cup rest lightly against the ground. It is used to protect the blade from hitting the ground.

• Reduce the risk of material wrapping around the blade by following these instructions:

1Always work at full throttle.

2Avoid the previously cut material during the return stroke.

• Stop the engine, unclip the harness and place the machine on the ground before you start to collect the cut material.

Grass trimming with a trimmer head

Trimming

• Hold the trimmer head just above the ground at an angle. It is the end of the cord that does the work. Let the cord work at its own pace. Never press the cord into the area to be cut.

Grass clearing using a grass blade

• Grass blades and grass cutters must not be used on woody stems.

• A grass blade is used for all types of tall or coarse grass.

• The grass is cut down with a sideways, swinging movement, where the movement from right-to-left is the clearing stroke and the movement from left-toright is the return stroke. Let the left-hand side of the blade (between 8 and 12 o’clock) do the cutting.

• The cord 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.

• Reduce the risk of damaging plants by shortening the cord to 10-12 cm and reducing the engine speed.

Clearing

• The clearing technique removes all unwanted vegetation. Keep the trimmer head just above the ground and tilt it. Let the end of the cord strike the ground around trees, posts, statues and the like.

CAUTION! This technique increases the wear on the cord.

• If the blade is angled to the left when clearing grass, the grass will collect in a line, which makes it easier to collect, e.g. by raking.

• The cord 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.

• When trimming and clearing you should use less than full throttle so that the cord lasts longer and to reduce the wear on the trimmer head.

English

21

WORKING TECHNIQUES

Cutting

• The trimmer is ideal for cutting grass that is difficult to reach using a normal lawn mower. Keep the cord parallel to the ground when cutting. Avoid pressing the trimmer head against the ground as this can ruin the lawn and damage the tool.

• Do not allow the trimmer head to constantly come into contact with the ground during normal cutting.

Constant contact of this type can cause damage and wear to the trimmer head.

Sweeping

• The fan effect of the rotating cord can be used for quick and easy clearing up. Hold the cord parallel to and above the area to be swept and move the tool to and fro.

• When cutting and sweeping you should use full throttle to obtain the best results.

22 – English

Carburettor

MAINTENANCE

Adjusting the idle speed (T)

Check that the air filter is clean. When the idle speed is correct, the cutting attachment should not rotate. If adjustment is required, close (turn clockwise) the idle adjustment screw T, with the engine running, until the cutting attachment starts to rotate. Open (turn anticlockwise) the screw until the cutting attachment stops. The idle speed is correctly set when the engine runs smoothly in all positions, and there is a clear margin to the speed at which the cutting attachment starts to rotate.

Procedures to be performed after every

100 hours of use

1 Remove the muffler, insert a screwdriver into the vent, and wipe away any carbon builup. Wipe away any carbon buildup on the muffler exhaust vent and cylinder exhaust vent at the same time.

2 Tighten all screws, bolts and fittings.

3 Check to see if any oil or grease has worked its way in between the clutch lining and drum, and if it has, wipe it away using oil-free, lead-free gasoline.

CAUTION! Never use a machine with a defective muffler.

Cooling system

To keep the working temperature as low as possible the machine is equipped with a cooling system.

Note: The machine should only be run for short periods at its highest speed.

!

WARNING! If the idle speed cannot be adjusted so that the cutting attachment stops, contact your dealer/service workshop. Do not use the machine until it has been correctly adjusted or repaired.

Muffler

CAUTION!

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.

The cooling system consists of:

1 Cooling fins on the cylinder.

2 Air intake / cooling vent (back)

Clean the cooling system with a brush once a week, more often in demanding conditions. A dirty or blocked cooling system results in the machine overheating which causes damage to the piston and cylinder.

Air filter

MAINTENANCE

Bevel gear

The air filter must be regularly cleaned to remove dust and dirt in order to avoid:

• Carburettor malfunctions

• Starting problems

• Loss of engine power

• Unnecessary wear to engine parts.

• Excessive fuel consumption.

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.

Spark plug

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. 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.

Fuel filter

The spark plug condition is influenced by:

• Incorrect carburettor adjustment.

• An incorrect fuel mixture (too much or incorrect type of oil).

• 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 0,6-0,7 mm.

The spark plug should be replaced after about a month in operation or earlier if necessary.

1 Fuel filter

When the engine runs short of fuel supply, check the fuel cap and the fuel filter for blockage.

CAUTION! Always use the recommended spark plug type! Use of the wrong spark plug can damage the piston/ cylinder. Check that the spark plug is fitted with a suppressor.
