Failure to follow all safety instructions listed below, can result in serious personal injury.

[] Do not allow children or untrained individuals to use this unit.

[] Never start or run the engine in a closed or poorly ventilated area; breathing exhaust fumes can kill.

[] Clear the work area before each use. Remove all objects such as rocks, broken glass, nails, wire, or string which can be thrown or become entangled in the cutting line or blade.

[] Wear safety glasses or goggles that are marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1 standard when operating this product.

[] Wear heavy, long pants, boots, and gloves. Do not wear loose fitting clothing, short pants, sandals, or go barefoot.

Do not wear jewelry of any kind.

[] Heavy protective clothing may increase operator fatigue, which could lead to heat stroke. During weather that is hot and humid, heavy work should be scheduled for early morning or late afternoon hours when temperatures are cooler.

[] Product users on United States Forest Service land, and in some states, must comply with fire prevention regulations.

This product is equipped with a spark arrestor; however, other user requirements may apply. Check with your federal, state, or local authorities.

[] Never operate this unit on the operator's left side.

[] Secure long hair above shoulder level to prevent entanglement in moving parts.

[] Keep all bystanders, children, and pets at least

50 ft. away. Bystanders should be encouraged to wear eye protection.

If you are approached, stop the engine and cutting attachment. In the case of bladed units, there is the added risk of injury to bystanders from being struck with the moving blade in the event of a blade thrust or other unexpected reaction of the saw.

[] Do not operate this unit when you are tired, ill, or under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication.

[] Do not operate in poor lighting.

[] Keep firm footing and balance.

Do not overreach.

Overreaching can result in loss of balance or exposure to hot surfaces.

[] Keep all parts of your body away from any moving part.

3

[] To avoid hot surfaces, never operate the unit with the bottom of the engine above waist level.

[] Do not touch area around the muffler or cylinder of the unit, these parts get hot from operation.

[] Always stop the engine and remove the spark plug wire before making any adjustments or repairs except for carburetor adjustments.

[] Inspect the unit before each use for loose fasteners, fuel leaks, etc. Replace any damaged parts before use.

[] The cutting attachment should never rotate at idle during normal use. The cutting attachment may rotate at idle during carburetor adjustments.

[] It has been reported that vibrations from hand-held tools may contributeto a condition called Raynaud's Syndrome in certain individuals.

Symptoms may include tingling, numbness, and blanching of the fingers, usually apparent upon exposure to cold. Hereditary factors, exposure to cold and dampness, diet, smoking, and work practices are all thought to contribute to the development of these symptoms.

It is presently unknown what, if any, vibrations or extent of exposure may contribute to the condition.

There are measures that can be taken by the operator to possibly reduce the effects of vibration: a) Keep your body warm in cold weather. When operating the unit wear gloves to keep hands and wrists warm. It is reported that cold weather is a major factor contributing to Raynaud's Syndrome.

b) After each period of operation, exercise to increase blood circulation.

c) Take frequent work breaks.

Limit the amount of exposure per day.

d) Keep the tool well maintained, fasteners tightened, and worn parts replaced.

If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, immediately discontinue use and see your physician about these symptoms.

[] Mix and store fuel in a container approved for gasoline.

[] Mix fuel outdoors where there are no sparks or flames.

Wipe up any fuel spillage. Move 30 ft. away from refueling site before starting engine. Slowly remove the fuel cap after stopping engine. Do not smoke when refueling.

[] Stop the engine and allow to cool before refueling or storing the unit.

[] Allow the engine to cool; empty the fuel tank and secure the unit from moving before transporting in a vehicle.

[] Wear your protective equipment and observe all safety instructions.

For units equipped with a clutch, be sure the cutting attachment stops turning when the engine idles. When the unit is turned off make sure the cutting attachment has stopped before the unit is set down.

SPECIFIC SAFETY

RULES FOR TRIMMER

USE

[] Inspect before use. Replace damaged parts. Make sure fasteners are in place and secure. Check for fuel leaks.

[] Replace string head if cracked, chipped, or damaged in any way. Be sure the string head or blade is properly installed and securely fastened. Failureto do so can cause serious injury.

[] Make sure all guards, straps, deflectors, and handles are properly and securely attached.

[] Use only the manufacturer's replacement string in the cutting head. Do not use any other cutting attachment.

To install any other brand of replacement string or cutting head to this string trimmer can result in serious personal injury. Never use, for example, wire or wire-rope, which can break off and become a dangerous projectile.

[] Never operate unit without the grass deflector in place and in good condition.

[] Maintain a firm grip on both handles while trimming. Keep string head below waist level. Never cut with the string head located over 30 in. or more above the ground.

SPECIFIC SAFETY

RULES

FOR

BRUSH=

CUTTER

AND BLADE USE

[] After engine stops, keep rotating blade in thicker weeds or pulpy stalks until it stops.

[] Do not operate the brushcutter unless the brushcutter guard is firmly secured in place and in good condition.

[] Use heavy gloves when operating the brushcutter and when installing or removing blades.

[] Always stop the engine and remove the spark plug wire before attempting to remove any obstruction caught or jammed in the blade or before removing and installing the blade.

[] Do not attempt to touch or stop the blade when it is rotating.

[] A coasting blade can cause injury while it continues to spin after the engine is stopped or throttle trigger released.

Maintain proper control until the blade has completely stopped rotating.

[] Replace any blade that has been damaged. Always make sure blade is installed correctly and securely fastened before each use. Failure to do so can cause serious injury.

[] Use only the manufacturer's replacement Tri-Arc _ blade intended for use on this brushcutter. Do not use any other blade. To install any other brand blade or cutting head to this brushcutter can result in serious personal injury.

[] The Tri-Ard ° blade is suited for cutting thicker weeds or pulpy stalks only. Do not use for any other purpose. Never use the Tri-Ard e blade to cut woody brush.

[] Exercise extreme caution when using the blade with this unit. Blade thrust is the reaction that may occur when the spinning blade contacts anything it cannot cut. This contact may cause the blade to stop for an instant, and suddenly "thrust" the unit away from the object that was hit. This reaction can be violent enough to cause the operator to lose control of the unit. Blade thrust can occur without warning if the blade snags, stalls, or binds. This is more likely to occur in areas where it is difficult to see the material being cut. For cutting ease and safety, approach the weeds being cut from the right to the left. In the event an unexpected object or woody stock is encountered, this could minimize the blade thrust reaction.

[]

[]

Never cut any material over 1/2 in. diameter.

Always wear the shoulder harness when using the brushcutter and adjust to a comfortable operating position.

Maintain a firm grip on both handles while cutting with a blade. Keep the blade away from your body and below waist level.

[] Never use the brushcutter with the blade located 30 in.

or more above the ground level.

[] Prior to replacing the fuel cap, clean and inspect the gasket.

[] Immediately replace fuel cap and hand tighten. Wipe up any fuel spillage.

NOTE: It is normal for smoke to be emitted from a new engine after first use.

WARNING:

Always shut off engine before fueling. Never add fuel to a machine with a running or hot engine. Move at least

30 ft. from refueling site before starting engine. Do not smoke! Failure to heed this warning could result in serious personal injury.

OXYGENATED

FUELS

Some conventional gasolines are blended with alcohol or an ether compound.

These gasolines are collectively referred to as oxygenated fuels. To meet clean air standards, some areas of the United States and Canada use oxygenated fuels to help reduce emissions.

If using an oxygenated fuel, make sure it is unleaded and meets the minimum octane rating requirements. Before using an oxygenated fuel, try to confirm the fuel's contents. Some states/provinces require this information to be posted on the pump. The following are the EPA approved percentages of oxygenates:

Ethanol

(ethyl or grain alcohol} 10% by volume. You may use gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by volume.

Gasoline containing ethanol may be marketed under the name "Gasohol." Do not use E85 fuel.

MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether} 15% by volume. You may use gasoline containing up to 15% MTBE by volume.

Methanol (methyl or wood alcohol) 5% by volume. You may use gasoline containing up to 5% methanol by volume as long as it also contains cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors to protect the fuel system. Gasoline containing more than 5% methanol by volume may cause starting and/or performance problems.

It may also damage metal, rubber, and plastic parts of the product or your fuel system.

If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms, try another service station or switch to another brand of gasoline.

NOTE: Fuel system damage or performance problems resuiting from the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more than the percentages of oxygenates stated previously are not covered under warranty.

OPERATING THE TRIMMER

See Figure 15.

,_

WARNING:

Always position the unit on the operator's right side. The use of the unit on the operator's left side will expose the user to hot surfaces and can result in possible burn injury.

_IL

WARNING:

To avoid burns from hot surfaces, never operate unit with the bottom of the engine above waist level.

Hold the trimmer with your right hand on the rear handle and your left hand on the front handle. Keep a firm grip with both hands while in operation. Trimmer should be held at a comfortable position with the rear handle about hip height.

Always operate trimmer at full throttle. Cut tall grass from the top down. This will prevent grass from wrapping around the shaft housing and string head which could cause damage from overheating. If grass becomes wrapped around the string head, STOP THE ENGINE, disconnect the spark plug wire, and remove the grass. Prolonged cutting at partial throttle will result in lubricant dripping from the muffler.

WARNING"

Always hold the string trimmer away from the body keeping clearance between the body and the product.

Any contact with the housing or string trimmer cutting head can result in burns and/or other serious personal injury.

DANGEROUS

CUTTING AREA

TO ADVANCE THE CUTTING

LINE (REEL EASY

STRING HEAD)

String advance is controlled by tapping the string head on grass while running engine at full throttle.

[] Run engine at full throttle.

[] Tap the knob on ground to advance string. The string advances each time the knob is tapped. Do not hold the knob on the ground.

NOTE: The line trimming cut-off blade on the grass deflector will cut the line to the correct length.

NOTE: If the string is worn too short you may not be able to advance the string by tapping it on the ground. If so, stop the engine, and manually advance the string.

To advance the cutting line manually:

[] Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire.

[] Push the knob in while pulling on string(s) to manually advance the string.

CUTTING TIPS

See Figures 16 -17.

[] Avoid hot surfaces by always keeping the tool away from your body. (Proper operating position shown in figure 15.)

[] Keep the trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this is the best cutting area.

[] The curved shaft trimmer cuts when passing the unit from right to left. The straight shaft trimmer cuts when passing the unit from left to right. This will avoid throwing debris at the operator. Avoid cutting in the dangerous area shown in illustration.

[] Use the tip of string to do the cutting; do not force string head into uncut grass.

[] Wire and picket fences cause extra string wear, even breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may wear string rapidly.

[] Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings, siding, and fence posts can easily be damaged by the string.

Hold the brushcutter with your right hand on the rear handle and the your hand on the "J" handle. Keep a firm grip with both hands while in operation. Brushcutter should be held at a comfortable position with the rear handle about hip height.

Maintain your grip and balance on both feet. Position yourself so that you will not be drawn off balance by the kickback reaction of the cutting blade.

Adjust the shoulder harness to position the brushcutter at a comfortable operating position and to assure that the shoulder harness will reduce the risk of operator contact with the blade.

BLADE

THRUST

Exercise extreme caution when using the blade with this unit. Blade thrust is the reaction that may occur when the spinning blade contacts anything it cannot cut. This contact may cause the blade to stop for an instant, and suddenly

"thrust" the unit away from the object that was hit. This reaction can be violent enough to cause the operator to lose control of the unit. Blade thrust can occur without warning if the blade snags, stalls, or binds. This is more likely to occur in areas where it is difficult to see the material being cut.

For cutting ease and safety, approach the weeds being cut with the brushcutter from the right to the left. In the event an unexpected object or woody stock is encountered, this

3ractice could minimize the blade thrust reaction.

,_

WARNING:

To avoid burns from hot surfaces, never operate unit with the bottom of the engine above waist level.

TRI=ARC ® BLADE

The Tri-Arc ®blade is suited only for thicker weeds and pulpy stalks. When the blade becomes dull, it can be turned over to extend the life of the blade. Do not sharpen the Tri-Arc ® blade.

CUTTING TECHNIQUE

WARNING:

Extreme care must be taken when using blades to ensure safe operation. Read the safety information for safe operation using the blade, refer to Specific Safety Rules for Brushcutter and Blade Use earlier in this manual.

[] Always hold brushcutter on your right side with both hands when operating. Use a firm grip on both handles.

[] Maintain your grip and balance on both feet. Position yourself so that you will not be drawn off balance by the kickback reaction of the cutting blade.

[] Inspect and clear the area of any hidden objects such as glass, rocks, concrete, fencing, wire, wood, metal, etc.

[] Never use blades near sidewalks, fencing, posts, buildings or other immovable objects.

[] Never use a blade after hitting a hard object without first inspecting it for damage. Do not use if any damage is detected.

[] The unit is used as a scythe, cutting from the right to the left in a broad sweeping action from side to side.

[] Use only the Tri-Arc ® blade. To install any other brand blade or cutting head to this brushcutter can result in serious personal injury.

(c) The warranty on emissions-related parts will be interpreted as follows: Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required in the Emissions

Maintenance Schedule and Warranty Parts List set forth below is warranted for two years. If any such part (including any part that is scheduled only for regular inspection) fails during the period of warranty coverage, it will be repaired or replaced at any

RYOBI® Authorized Service Center at no charge. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remaining warranty period.

A statement to the effect of "repair or replace as necessary" would not reduce the period of warranty coverage.

Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the Emissions Maintenance Schedule and Warranty Parts List is warranted for the period of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty is warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point, and will be repaired or replaced at any RYOBB, Authorized Service Center for no charge until

Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., is liable for damages to other engine components caused by the failure of a warranted part still under warranty.

Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the California Air Resource Board may not be used. The use of any non-exempted add-on or modified parts will be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim. Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., will not be liable to warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of a nonexempted add-on or modified part.

The California Air Resources Board's Emission Warranty Parts List specifically defines the emission-related warranted parts. (EPA's regulations do not include a parts list, but the EPA considers emission-related warranted parts to include all the parts listed below.)
