Move the engine throttle lever to the slow position (push throttle lever to the front of the edger). 5. Remove the throttle cable retaining clamp and screw from the engine. 6. Insert the end of the throttle cable into the hole on the engine throttle lever. 7. Place the cable-retaining clamp over the cable, insert the screw and tighten. 8. Replace the air filter cover. 9. The remote throttle lever should move from slow to fast and be approximately centered in its slot. 10. If the throttle feels tight, loosen the engine throttle lever pivot nut. 11. If the throttle does not stay where it is placed, tighten the remote throttle lever pivot nut (key # 63). Fig. 4 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 8 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. 10 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! Fig. 5 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE CORRECTIVE ACTION A.
