2. If the attachment moves when the engine is at idle, reduce the idle speed by turning the idle adjustment screw(T) coun ter-clockwise.

3. If a tachometer is available, the engine idle speed should be final adjusted to 2750 (±250) rpm (min -1 ).

NOTE

When the carburettor cannot be adjusted properly with the idle speed adjustment screw (T), you must contact an authorized service dealer.

WARNING

 

The cutter blades are very sharp. Always wear gloves when working around the cutter assembly.

Failure to observe the precautions could cause an accident or injury, or even lead to a fatality.

Cutting performance of your machine depends a great deal on proper cutter blade adjustment. Properly adjusted blades will os cillate freely yet help prevent binding of cut material between blades. Adjust blades as follows: 1. Loosen all blade locknuts at least one full turn.

2. Tighten each blade shoulder bolt firmly, and then loosen the shoulder bolts 1/4 to 1/2 turn.

3. Working from the gearcase end, lock each bolt in place by firmly tightening its locknut while preventing the shoulder bolt from turning.

When shoulder bolt adjustment is correct, there should be a gap of 0.25–0.50 mm between the cutter blades and the flat washers, and the flat washer beneath each bolt head should turn freely.

CAUTION

Operating the trimmer with worn or improperly adjusted cutters will reduce cutter performance and may also damage your machine. Never operate the machine with damaged or worn cutters.
