WARNING
The ignition components of this machine generate an electromagnetic field during operation which may interfere
with some pacemakers. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, persons with pacemakers should consult with
their physician and the pacemaker manufacturer before operating this machine. In the absence of such information, ECHO does not recommend the use of ECHO products by anyone who has a pacemaker.
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 BLOWER
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 Manuals
• Provide all users of this equipment with the Operator’s 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.
• Take wind conditions into account: avoid open doors and windows.
• Do not point blower at people or animals.
Keep a Firm Grip
• Hold the front and rear handles with both hands, with thumbs
and fingers 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 and immediately after operation.

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. Blower housing may contain shredder blades and
other sharp edges that can cause serious injuries if touched, even if engine is off and blades are not moving. Wear
gloves to protect hands from sharp edges and hot surfaces.
WARNING
Operation of this equipment may create sparks that can start fires. This unit is equipped with a spark arrestor to
prevent discharge of hot particles from the engine. Metal blade use also can create sparks if the blade strikes rocks,
metal, or other hard objects. Contact local fire authorities for laws or regulations regarding 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. 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. FD certified oil, such as
Echo premium Power Blend X TM, will void the two-stroke engine warranty.
IMPORTANT

of gasoline.
2.
3.
4.
Add the proper amount of 2-stroke oil to gasoline.
Close container and shake to mix oil with gasoline.
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 BLOWER
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.
WARNING
Always wear safety glasses, hearing protection, a face filter mask
and take all safety precautions or serious personal injury may result.
Do not point the blower pipe in the direction of people or pets.
IMPORTANT
Use reduced speed only when performing light-duty tasks or to
comply with local noise regulations. Continuous low speed operation may allow fuel/oil residue to build-up on the piston and cause
rapid build-up of carbon on the spark arrestor screen, resulting in
overheating and engine damage. To reduce harmful build-up, run
engine at wide open throttle for at least 5 minutes every hour, and
inspect/clean the spark arrestor screen after approximately 40 hours
of operation.
Read the Safety Section carefully.
IMPORTANT
To avoid engine damage due to over-revving, do not block
blower pipe opening.
1.
Use only during appropriate hours.
2.
Make sure all blower pipes are installed.
3.
Allow the engine to warm up at a fast idle for a few minutes.
4.
Set engine speed with throttle (A).
5.
Use lower speed to blow dry grass and leaves from walks, patios
and drives.
6.
Additional speed may be necessary to clean leaves from a lawn or
flower bed.
7.
Higher speed may be necessary to move gravel, dirt, snow, bottles
or cans from a driveway, street, parking lot or stadium.
NOTE
Never use a higher speed setting than necessary to perform a task.
Remember, the higher the engine speed, the louder the blower
noise. Minimize dust by using blower at lower speeds and by
dampening material with water/mist when necessary. Keep debris
on your property.

To maintain proper engine operating temperatures, cooling air
mustpass freely through the cylinder fin area. This flow of air
carriescombustion 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 buildup 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.
Cleaning Grill
1.
Remove accumulated debris from intake grill between backpack
frame and blower housing.
Cleaning Cylinder Fins
1.
Remove spark plug cover and spark plug.
2.
Remove engine cover (five screws), pull cover away from engine,
and tie temporary knot in starter rope. Clean cylinder fins to allow
cooling air to pass freely.
IMPORTANT
Always reinstall spark plug cover, otherwise engine cooling will
be greatly reduced, and engine failure will result.

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.
High Altitude Operation
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting,
emission, and durability performance up to 1,100 feet above sea level
(ASL) (96.0 kPa). To maintain proper engine operation and emission
compliance above 1,100 feet ASL 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 ASL, the
carburetor must be re-adjusted when operating the engine below
1,100 feet ASL, otherwise severe engine damage may result.
Level 2.
Parts required:
None.
NOTE
Do not adjust carburetor unless necessary. If you have difficulty,
see your ECHO dealer.
Adjustment Screws
Idle Speed (A)
Control throttle opening at idle.
Low (LO) Speed (B) Controls amount of fuel at low speed and
supplementary fuel for smooth progression from
idle to high speed.
High (HI) Speed (C) Controls amount of fuel at full throttle
Before Adjustment
A
Check that:
• Air filter is clean and properly installed.
• Spark arrestor screen and exhaust port are free of carbon
• Blower pipes are installed
C
B
22
Initial Adjustment
1.
With engine off, turn HI speed screw (C) counterclockwise to
stop.
2.
Turn LO speed screw (B) midway between stops.
3.
Turn idle screw (A) until tip of screw just touches throttle plate;
then turn three (3) turns clockwise.
Final Adjustment
IMPORTANT
Limiter caps prevent exceeding emission limits and over rich adjustment, but not over lean adjustment, which can cause engine
failure: Do not exceed recommended HI speed engine R.P.M.
during operation, or for long periods during adjustment.
1.
Start engine, run at idle for one minute.
2.
Complete warm up by running at full throttle for 5 minutes, operating choke twice to clear air from carburetor chambers.
3.
Run at idle and accelerate to check for smooth transition from idle
to high speed; if engine hesitates, turn LO speed screw (B) counterclockwise 1/8th of a turn at a time until acceleration is smooth.
4.
Use a tachometer to adjust idle speed to specifications found on
page 25.
