Before Operating the Multi-Tool
Before beginning work, carefully check the work area and remove any obstacles. Within a perimeter of 15
metres of the work area should be considered a hazardous area into which no-one should enter while the
Multi-Tool is being used, and when necessary this area should be marked with a warning rope, warning signs,
or other forms of warning.
When work is to be performed simultaneously by two or more operators, care should also be taken to
constantly look around to check the presence and locations of other operators within the work area to
maintain a safe distance between each operator.
Before beginning work, each component of the Multi-Tool should be checked to make sure that it is in
proper working order, make sure that there are no loose screws or bolts, fuel leaks, ruptures, dents, broken
guards or any other problems which might interfere with safe operation.
Keep all parts of your body away from the cutting head when the engine is running.
Before Starting the Engine
Carefully check the work area to make sure that no obstacles exist within a perimeter of 15metres around the
Multi-Tool before starting the engine.
To start the engine, place the Multi-Tool onto the ground in a flat clear area and hold it firmly in place to
ensure that neither the cutting head nor the throttle come into contact with any obstacles when the engine
starts.
After starting the engine, make sure that the cutting head stops moving when the throttle trigger is
released (idle). If the cutting head continues to move when the engine is at idle, adjust the idle screw on the
carburettor to a point where the cutting head stops moving, if this cannot be achieved, take the Multi-Tool to
your authorised service dealer for adjustment.

271MT / 281MT Multi-Tool
Two-Stroke Fuel
Fuel is very flammable. Do not smoke or bring any flame or sparks near fuel.
Always stop the engine and allow it to cool before refuelling.
Refuel outdoors on bare ground, restart engine at least 5m away from the refuelling area.
The engine is lubricated by oil mixed into petrol. Prepare a mixture of unleaded petrol and semi-synthetic
two-stroke oil that meets the specifications of: API TC, ISO-L-EGC, JASO FC (Low Smoke) oil.
Recommended mixing ratio is 40:1.
FUEL WITH NO OIL (RAW PETROL) will cause severe damage to the engine which is not covered by
manufacturer’s warranty.
Use fresh, unleaded petrol (95 RON) and semi-synthetic oil specially made for high performance two-stroke
engines. Mix in a ratio of 40 parts petrol to 1 part of oil.
By using two-stroke oil specially made for two-stroke engines you will reduce the formation of ash and
carbon deposits on the spark plug, piston, exhaust muffler and cylinder as well as reducing emissions of
harmful exhaust gases.
Oil FOR 4-CYCLE ENGINES should not be used as two-stroke lubrication oil as it can cause fouling of the spark
plug, exhaust port blocking, piston ring sticking and other internal engine damage.
Original Instructions Version June13

271MT / 281MT Multi-Tool
Fuel Storage
Mixed two-stroke fuel which has been left unused for a period of one month or more may damage
the carburettor and result in the engine failing to start or operate correctly.
When storing the Multi-Tool for a period of more than one month, empty the fuel tank, and
run the engine to empty the carburettor of fuel.
Two stroke fuel can cause deterioration of rubber and/or plastic components during prolonged
storage.
It is important to only use good quality, fresh fuel mix.
Fuelling
Shake the fuel container to thoroughly mix the two-stroke oil and petrol.
Clean dirt from around the fuel cap before removing.
Pour two-stroke fuel into the fuel tank with a filtered funnel, up to 80% of the fuel tank’s capacity.
Replace the fuel cap and tighten securely. Spilled fuel must be wiped away from the Multi-Tool before
starting the engine.
Move at least 5m away from the refuelling area before restarting the engine.
When refilling the tank, always turn off the engine and allow it to cool down. Take a careful look around to make sure that there are no sparks or open flames anywhere nearby before refuelling.

Using the Brushcutter
Choosing the cutting device
Choose the most suitable cutting device for the job to be done, according to these general indications:
•
The cutting line head can eliminate tall grass and non-woody vegetation
•
The 3-point blade is suitable for cutting brushwood and small shrubs up to 2 cm in diameter.
Nylon Head
•
Cut the grass in 1.5 metre widths, keeping the machine well balanced.
•
Avoid engaging stones, piles of earth, small pieces of wood or anything that could be hidden or difficult to see in the grass. If a large object is accidentally struck, if the cutting head gets blocked, overloaded or stringy material gets wrapped in the cutting head, reduce the engine speed so the engine idles. Make sure that the cutting head has stopped rotating switch off the engine and remove the material.
•
Put the brushcutter on the ground and check that the cutting head has not been damaged. If necessary, change the cutting head. If the head is only wrapped by vegetation, remove by hand and clean the cutting head.
•
Always wear safety gloves for this operation and ensure the engine is switched off and the head is stationary.
•
When the 2 nylon cords become too short, accelerate the engine and bump the nylon head on the ground. Automatically the 2 nylon cords will feed out and be cut to the correct length. Repeat the operation if necessary.
3-Point Blade
•
Start cutting above the undergrowth and then move down with the blade so as to cut the brush into small pieces.
•
Avoid hitting stones, piles of earth, small pieces of wood or anything that could be hidden or difficult to see in the grass.

Chain Oil
Filling the Oil Reservoir
•
Fill the chain oil tank with low
viscosity chain oil or SAE30 oil.
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.
Adjusting the Oil Flow Rate
Never fill the oil reservoir or adjust the oiler with the engine running.
•
•
24
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.

Running In
During the first ten hours of work, avoid running the engine at maximum speed for a prolonged period until
all the components have bedded in, after the engine has been run in, it will reach its maximum power.
Transportation
Never transport the Multi-Tool with the engine running. An engine that is running could be accidently
accelerated causing the cutter head to engage.
Make sure the blade safety guards are in place when transporting the Multi-Tool.
When carrying by hand, the cutting head should be pointing backwards.
Ensure the Multi-Tool is secure when transporting in a vehicle and the tank is drained of fuel.
Maintenance
IMPORTANT
After every use, check that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely fastened and tighten if necessary.
In the event of an accident, breakdown or blockage, ensure the engine is turned off before any work is
carried out to rectify this.
Make sure the engine has stopped and is cool before performing any service to the machine. Contact with a
moving cutting head or hot muffler may result in a personal injury.
Fuel Filter
Every 15 hours of operation, using a wire hook, take the
fuel filter from the fuel tank and clean or replace with
a new fuel filter.

Spark Plug
Poor starting or misfiring is often caused by a fouled or defective
spark plug, clean and reset the gap to 0.65 mm, or replace the spark
plug with NGK: BPMR7A as necessary.
Air Filter
Before using the Multi-Tool, check the air filter (a). A clogged air filter will reduce the engine performance.
Remove the air filter cover by undoing the cover screw clean the filter element in warm, soapy water and
dry completely before installing. If the element is broken or shrunk, replace with a new one.
(a)
Carburettor
The carburettor mixture setting has been set at the factory and will
not need adjusting.
Adjusting the idle speed. If adjustment is necessary turn the T screw
(b) clock wise until the cutter head starts to move, then turn the
screw T anticlockwise until the cutter head stops.
If the idle speed cannot be adjusted to stop the cutting head
moving at idle, contact your dealer for repair before use.
(b)
Safety Lock
The safety lock is to prevent the throttle lever from accidentally
being engaged. The throttle lever (c) can only be pressed in if the
safety lock (d) is held down. Check if the safety lock and throttle
lever returns to its original position and the engine returns to idling
when you release your hand from the handle.
Any defects contact your nearest service agent for repairs
before using the machine.
