2. Drain the fuel from the fuel tank. Start the engine and run it
until no fuel remains in the carburetor. (The engine will stop
automatically when no fuel remains.)
3. Allow the engine to cool. Remove the spark plug and squirt a
small amount of fresh engine oil into the spark plug hole. Slowly
pull the recoil starter cord two or three times.
4. Reinstall the spark plug. Slowly pull the recoil starter cord and
release it when you feel resistance. (This closes the intake and
exhaust ports.)
5. Lightly wipe the external surface of the engine with cloth. Then,
store the machine in a dry dust-free location where no open fire
is present.
6. Before storing the machine, clean the cutting blade and check
for any irregularities. Install the blade cover provided as a
standard accessory.
7. Store the drained fuel in a safe container and keep it in a cool,
dry room.
CAUTION
Do not store the machine for a prolonged period with fuel remaining
in the fuel tank. Impurities in the fuel will deteriorate, adversely
affecting the carburetor and fuel filter and possibly causing an
engine malfunction. Always fully drain the fuel before storing the

always shut off the engine before turning around.
Plan a clear escape route should you need to avoid falling
items.
Before starting work, remove tree branches, leaves and other
obstacles that can limit your field of vision.
Determine the falling path of cut debris based on the angle of
the hedge or foliage being cut, the presence of obstacles, and
the topography and wind direction.
To avoid injury from falling foliage, remain aware of the path of
falling foliage while working. Do not stand right below the area
you are cutting.
8. Cutting pattern
• Do not attempt to cut branches exceeding 5 mm in diameter.
• When cutting longer branches or cutting deeply into a hedge,
cut in several stages.
• During the trimming work, the cutting blades can become
jammed with twigs or get snagged by branches and the like. If
this occurs, shut off the engine before removing the cause of
the jam.
• Run the engine at speeds between 5.500 and 8.000 rpm to
suit the working conditions.

Long term storage
If the machine will not be started for 30 days of longer, maintain and
store the machine as follows:
1. Remove debris from the machine. Check the machine for
damage and loose screws. Correct any problems so that the
machine can be restarted later without a problem.
2. Drain the fuel from the fuel tank. Start the engine and run it
until no fuel remains in the carburetor. (The engine will stop
automatically when no fuel remains.)
3. Allow the engine to cool. Remove the spark plug and squirt a
small amount of fresh engine oil into the spark plug hole. Slowly
pull the recoil starter cord two or three times.
4. Reinstall the spark plug. Slowly pull the recoil starter cord and
release it when you feel resistance. (This closes the intake and
exhaust ports.)
5. Lightly wipe the external surface of the engine with cloth. Then,
store the machine in a dry dust-free location where no open fire
is present.
6. Remove debris from the cutting blades. Check the cutting
blades for irregularities. To prevent rusting, apply oil sparingly
to the surface of the cutting blades and attach the blade cover
(standard accessory).
CAUTION
Do not store the machine for a prolonged period with fuel remaining
in the fuel tank. Impurities in the fuel will deteriorate, adversely
affecting the carburetor and fuel filter and possibly causing an
engine malfunction. Always fully drain the fuel before storing the
machine.
BRUSHCUTTER
CAUTION
The cutting blades are very sharp. Wear heavy-duty
gloves and handle the blades with care. The cutting
blades are sharp and can cause injury.
1. Loosen the lock nut (O) (M6).
2. Tighten the screw (P) until no gap is present between the upper
and lower blades. Then back off the screw by 1/3 to 1/2 turn.
3. With the screw (P) held in position, tighten the lock nut (O) (M6).
4. Confirm that you can turn the flat washer (Q) with your finger.
HEDGE TRIMMER
10. Adjusting the gap of the cutting blades
Four screws secure the lower cutting blade to the upper blade.
Adjust these screws to create sufficient gap between the upper and
lower cutting blades to allow the blades to reciprocate freely. If the
gap between the blades is insufficient, the cutting blades will not
reciprocate; if the gap is too great, the cutting blades will not cut
efficiently and will tend to become jammed with debris.
Before starting the work, relubricate the cutting blades
with oil.
PRUNING SAW
NOTICE
Even before completing work, relubricate the cutting blades when
refueling or when taking a break. Frequent relubrication will help
extend the service life of the cutting blades.

Ensuring Safe Operation
PRUNING SAW
13. Limit your worktime
WARNING
• Do not operate the machine for more than 2 hours a day.
• Rest for 10 to 20 minutes after every 30 to 40 minutes of
operation.
6. Checking the chain oil feed rate
Before starting the work, check that the chain oil is fed at the
correct rate. To do so, start the engine and allow the saw chain to
run. Point the end of the guide bar at a wood board or other flat
surface without allowing the saw chain to touch the board. Run the
chainsaw at a fairly high speed for 2 to 3 seconds. If a small amount
of chain oil has splashed onto the board, the chain oil feed rate is
appropriate.
For the procedure on adjusting the chain oil feed rate, see 13.
Adjusting the chain oil feed rate under Inspection and Maintenance.

CULTIVATOR
10. Exhaust Gas Precautions
DANGER
10. Kickback
Never use the leading end of the guide bar (especially not the
leading 1/4 near the tip) to cut a branch. If the leading end of the
guide bar contacts a tree, branch, or other hard object while the
saw chain is running, violent kickback will occur. Kickback is a
violent reaction force that causes the chainsaw to swing back
toward the operator, possibly leading to injury.
11. Special precautions when two or more machines are in
use
When two or more machines are in use simultaneously, it is
essential that all operators use extreme care to maintain a safe
distance from each other, constantly look around, and always
remain aware of presence of the other operators to ensure safe
operation.
WARNING
The saw chain has very sharp edges. Use protective gloves for
safety.
•
•
12. Abnormal noise and vibration
• If the machine suddenly exhibits abnormal noise or vibration,
immediately shut off the engine.
• If abnormal noise or vibration occur, check for damage to the
saw chain, a loose screw, or other failure. Check the entire
machine for any sign of a problem.
• After the cause has been found, do not use the machine until
you have completed the repair.

Do not attempt to cut branches exceeding 15 cm in diameter.
If it is necessary to cut a thick branch, cut it in several stages.
If the saw chain becomes jammed in a branch during
operation, or if the saw chain becomes entangled with a
branch, shut off the engine before attempting to free up the
saw chain.
Run the engine at speeds between 5.500 and 8.000 rpm to
suit the working conditions.
Be extremely careful about the possibility of kickback when
cutting bent or split branches.
Press the guide on the gearcase against the branch you intend
to cut. With this technique, the running saw chain will not lurch
forward when the branch has been cut through. Do not allow a
gap between the guide and branch being cut; do not move the
saw chain back and forth. (Fig.3-3)
If another branch is immediately behind the branch being cut,
use extreme caution. The second branch can cause the guide
bar to break. (Fig.3-4)
When cutting a branch, lightly push the saw chain against it.
Immediately before cutting through the branch, stop pressing
and hold the chainsaw securely.
Attaching The Pruning Mechanism (Fig 17)
• Remove the locating screw (5).
• Using a 4mm Allen key, loosen the clamping bolt (4).
• Slide the drive shaft (1) into the gearbox (2) until the locating
hole (3) in the drive shaft is visible through the locating hole in
the gearbox (5).
• Insert the locating screw (5) into the gearbox (2) and tighten.
• Using a 4mm Allen key, tighten the clamping bolt (4).
NOTE
• Do not use waste or regenerated oil that can cause damage to
the oil pump.
• The oil reservoir has a capacity sufficient to provide about 20
minutes of cutting time (when set to deliver the minimum flow
rate). Be sure to refill the oil tank every time when refuelling the
saw.
Checking the oil supply
• After starting the engine, run the chain at medium speed and see
if chain oil is thrown off as shown in
the figure Fig 23.
Loosen the nut 6, Fig 18/20 and remove the chain cover 8.
Mount the guide bar, then fit the saw chain around the bar and
sprocket Fig 19.
Adjusting Oil Flow Rate
Pay attention to the correct direction of the saw chain Fig 19.
•
•
•
•
Fit the chain tensioner into the lower hole of the guide bar, then
install the chain cover, and fasten the mounting nut to finger
tightness Fig 20.
Turn the adjuster screw 1 clockwise until the chain does not
sag from the underside of the guide bar Fig 21.
Tighten the chain cover nut.
Pull the chain around the guide bar by hand to check that the
chain has the correct tension, without any tight spots.
WARNING
Never fill the oil reservoir or adjust the oiler with the engine
running.
• An increase in bar oil flow rate will speed oil consumption,
requiring more frequent checks on the oil reservoir.
• The guide bar and chain are lubricated automatically by a
pump that operates whenever the chain rotates. The pump is
set at the factory to deliver a minimum flow rate, but it can be
adjusted in the field. A temporary increase in oil flow is often
desirable when cutting hardwood.
Adjust the pump as follows:
• Stop the engine and make sure the stop switch is in the OFF
position.
• Place the unit on its side with the oil reservoir (1) up.
• The oil flow adjusting screw must be pressed in slightly in order
to turn. Failure to do so could damage the pump and screw
(Fig 24).
• With a screwdriver, push in on the oil flow rate adjusting screw
and turn in the desired direction (there are three incremental
settings)
• Clockwise-decrease lubrication, Counter clockwiseincrease lubrication.
It is important to maintain the proper chain tension. Rapid
wear of the guide bar or the chain coming off can be caused
by improper tension, especially when using a new chain.
