WARNING - ALL LITTLE WONDER EDGERS ARE SHIPPED WITHOUT OIL. WHEN FILLING OIL Use SAE 30 Oil. REFER TO ENGINE MANUFACTURES INSTRUCTION MANUAL
FOR PROPER ENGINE OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
A. BEFORE STARTING
1. Place Edger on level surface; be sure blade
is not obstructed and the area is clear and free of
bystanders. Your Edger is equipped with a Honda
4-cycle engine.
2. Check oil level, and be sure crankcase is filled
with oil.
3. Fill gas tank with fresh gas. Do not mix gas with
oil.
NOTE: Refer to Honda Operating and Maintenance
Instructions for recommended grades of oil and gas.
4 For easier starting, remove belt tension by pulling
up the belt slackener lever (P/N 167-2).
B. STARTING PROCEDURE
1. For easier starting, remove belt tension by pulling
up the belt slackener lever (P/N 167-2).
2. Prior to starting the engine, secure and hold the
edger handle with your left hand.
3. Refer to your Engine Operator/Owner Manual for
Engine Starting Instructions.
4. Once the engine starts, set the throttle control
lever to desired speed.
NOTE: A warm engine requires less choking than a
cold engine.
C. STOP PROCEDURE
1. Pull throttle lever towards you to STOP position.
2. Turn engine switch to OFF position.
! CAUTION ▲
!
▲
D. CAUTION
1. Do not change the
engine governor settings or overspeed the engine.
2. If the product vibrates abnormally, immediately
stop the engine and check for the cause. Vibration is
generally a warning sign of trouble.
3. Stop the engine whenever you leave the operating
position; disconnect the spark plug lead wire before
unclogging the unit, when making a repair, adjust-
ment, inspection or the like.
4. Operate machine from position where guards
block the line of sight to the cutting member.
E. OPERATING
1. Eye protection must be worn at all times. Use
common sense and exercise caution at all times when
operating your Edger.
2. Operate in a safe manner. When edging, the
potential exists for thrown objects which can cause
injury (i.e.) from rocks, cement, pieces of steel, glass,
etc. These obstructions should be avoided at all times.
3. Never leave the machine when the engine is running, particularly on hills where the unit might roll.
4. Setting depth of blade. (1) Place left hand on
upper handle. (2) Grasp lever, P/N 228, with right
hand and pull to the right, which disengages lever
from rachet segment on handle. Move lever forward
or backward along rachet segment and insert key on
lever into notch on rachet at the desired depth.
Moving lever forward decreases depth of cut, moving
lever backward increases depth of cut.
6. Engine speed - The engine speed should be kept
to the minimum consistent with the job at hand.
Speeds higher than necessary will only cause undue
wear and tear. A speed half-way between "fast" and
"slow" is normally adequate. Tougher jobs may
require higher speeds.
7. Little Wonder Edgers provide the finishing touch.
They edge at any angle along flower beds, terraces,
sidewalks and curbs. They trim along buildings,
trees, walks, marker hedges and fences with ease
and reliability.
8. Edging - The blade should be perpendicular to
the ground or sidewalk. The cutting depth should
be sufficient to cut away the root system, usually 1”
to 1 1/2" deep. Along flush sidewalks or driveways,
it is easier to place the wheels on the sidewalk or
driveway rather than the grass. The hardened tool
steel blade, P/N 129, becomes its own guide if it is
permitted to rub against the side or edge of the sidewalk or driveway. Angles other than vertical my be
desirable when edging flower beds, walls, posts, etc.
When edging along a curve, the rear wheels should
be held off the ground so the machine may be maneu9
vered "wheelbarrow fashion."
USER MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight.
2. Never store the machine filled with fuel inside a
building or in a confined space where fumes may be
susceptible to sparks or an open flame.
3. Refer to the instructions manual for important
details if the product is to be stored for an extended
period of time.
4. Check the tightness of the blade nut prior to each
use.
5. Prior to each use, lubricate cutter head shaft
(P/N 131), cutter head bracket (P/N l00-C), and key
(P/N 138) at slip rotation points every 8 hours
6. Prior to each use, check to see that set screws on
pulley are tight, and guards are in place.
NOTE: The belt guard is an important safety feature
and is vital to the proper operation of the edger.
7. Grease cutter head every 25 hours. Use Lithium
#0 grease (P/N 4042). Add grease until grease starts
to squeeze through the bearing.
! CAUTION ▲
!
▲
Loose set screws can cause
damage to shaft and pulley.
Improper maintenance will void warranty.

WARNING: The engine on your Pro Honda
Edger is not equipped with a spark arrester and
if machine is to be used on any forest-covered,
brush-covered, or grass-covered unimproved
land, before using on such land a spark arrester
must be added to the muffler. The arrester must
be maintained in effective working order by the
operator. In the State of California, the above is
required by law (Section 4442 of the California
Public Resources Code). Other states may have
similar laws. Federal laws apply on federal
lands. See your Authorized Honda Service
Center for spark arrester muffler options.
NOTE: The belt guard is vital to the proper
operation of the edger. The belt guard is not just
a safety feature!
