INTRODUCTION
This product has many features for making its use more pleasant and enjoyable. Safety, performance, and dependability
have been given top priority in the design of this product, making it easy to maintain and operate.
general SAFETY RULES
Do not touch area around the muffler or cylinder of the unit.
These parts get hot from operation. Failure to heed this
warning could result in possible serious personal injury.
■■Carry the chain saw with the engine stopped, the guide bar
and saw chain to the rear, scabbard on the guide bar and
saw chain, and the muffler away from your body.
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 chain may rotate during carburetor adjustments.
■It has been reported that vibrations from hand-held tools
may contribute to 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 the 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.
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.
Check for damaged parts. Before further use of the tool, any
part that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other
conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part
that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by
an authorized service dealer. Be sure the chain stops moving
when the throttle trigger is released. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of shock, fire, or serious injury.
WARNING!
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow
all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock,
fire and/or serious personal injury.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
For safe operation, read and understand all instructions
before using this product. Follow all safety instructions.
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 let anyone use the machine who has not received
adequate instructions in the machine’s proper use. This
applies to rentals as well as privately owned units and also
to the power head it is attached to.
A l w a y s w e a r s a f e t y g l a s s e s w i t h s i d e s h i e l d s .
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They
are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of eye injury.
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.
Wear heavy, long pants, boots, and gloves. Do not wear
loose fitting clothing, short pants, or go barefoot. Do not
wear jewelry of any kind. Wear hearing protection.
 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.
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.
Do not operate in rain or use in damp or wet environments.
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.
To avoid hot surfaces, never operate the unit with the bottom
of the engine above waist level.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
Follow the sharpening and maintenance instructions for
the saw chain.
Kickback is a dangerous reaction that can lead to serious
injury. Kickback may occur when the moving chain contacts an object at the upper portion of the tip of the guide
bar or when the wood closes in and pinches the chain
in the cut. Contact at the upper portion of the tip of the
guide bar can cause the chain to dig into the object and
stop the chain for an instant. The result is a lightning-fast,
reverse reaction which kicks the guide bar up and back
toward the operator. If the chain is pinched along the top
of the guide bar, the guide bar can be driven rapidly back
toward the operator, which can cause loss of control and
may result in serious injury. Do not rely exclusively upon
the safety devices built into the product.
Use only the replacement guide bars and low kickback
chains specified for the unit.
Operate saw in well ventilated areas.
Do not operate the saw with one hand! Serious injury to
the operator, helpers, bystanders, or any combination of
these persons may results from one hand operation. This
saw is intended for two-handed use.
Use extreme caution when cutting small sized brush
and saplings because slender material may catch the
saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull you off
balance.
With a basic understanding of kickback, you can reduce
or eliminate the element of surprise. Sudden surprise
contributes to accidents.
When cutting a limb that is under tension, be alert for
spring back so that you will not be struck when tension
in wood fibers are released.
Make sure that the area in which you are cutting is free
from obstructions. Do not let the nose of the guide bar
contact a log, branch, fence, or any other obstruction
while you are operating the unit. Have a planned retreat
path.
Keep a good firm grip on the saw with both hands, the
right hand on the rear and the left hand on the front
handle, when the engine is running. Use a firm grip with
thumbs and fingers encircling the chain saw handles. A
firm grip will help you avoid kickback and maintain control
of the saw. Don’t let go.
Cut only when visibility and light are adequate for you to
see clearly.
Do not operate a chain saw in a tree unless you have
been specifically trained to do so.
Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Always cut
with both feet on solid ground to prevent being pulled off
balance.
refueling
To protect yourself from electrocution, do not operate
within 50 feet of overhead electrical lines.
 Fuel is highly flammable. Take precautions when
using to reduce the chance of serious personal injury.
Before starting the engine, make sure the chain is not
contacting any object.
Store fuel in a cool, well-ventilated area, safely away from
spark and/or flame-producing equipment.
Always cut with the engine running at full speed. Fully
squeeze the throttle trigger and maintain a steady cutting
speed.
Store fuel in containers specifically designed for this
purpose.
Only refuel outdoors and do not smoke while ­refueling.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it is designed.
Add fuel before starting the engine. Never remove the cap
of the fuel tank or add fuel while the engine is running or
when the engine is hot.
To protect yourself from falling branches, do not stand directly under the branch or limb being cut. This unit should
not be held at an angle over 60° from ground level.
Keep the handles dry, clean, and free of lubricant or fuel
mixture.
If fuel is spilled, do not attempt to start the engine but
move the machine away from the area of spillage and
avoid creating any source of ignition until fuel vapors
have dissipated.
Shut off the engine and make sure the cutting attachment
has stopped before setting the unit down.
If the fuel tank has to be drained, do this outdoors.
Replace all fuel tank and container caps securely.
To prevent electrical shock or serious personal injury, do
not use this product with any AC power head.

OXYGENATED FUELS
FILLING TANK
n Clean surface around fuel cap to prevent contamination.
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 resulting from the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more
than the percentages of oxygenates stated previously are
not covered under warranty.
n Loosen fuel cap slowly. Rest the cap on a clean
­surface.
n Carefully pour fuel into the tank. Avoid spillage.
n Prior to replacing the fuel cap, clean and inspect the
gasket.
n 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 the engine. Do
not smoke! Failure to heed this warning could result in
serious personal injury.

use a left-handed (cross-handed) grip, or any stance that
places your body or arm across the chain line.
WARNING:
Do not allow familiarity with this product to make you
careless. Remember that a careless fraction of a second is
sufficient to inflict serious injury.
n Never stand directly under the limb you are cutting.
n Always wear shoulder strap for increased safety and to
support the pruner.
WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles
side shields, a hard hat, and
erating power tools. Failure

Basic Cutting Procedure
Follow the steps below to prevent damage to tree or shrub
bark. Do not use a back-and-forth sawing motion.
n Accelerate the engine to full throttle just before entering
the cut by squeezing the throttle trigger. Keep the engine
at full throttle the entire time you are cutting.
WARNING:
Do not use any attachments or accessories not recommended by the manufacturer of this product. The use of
attachments or accessories not recommended can result
in serious personal injury.
n Make a shallow first cut (1/4 of limb diameter) on the
underside of the limb close to the main limb or trunk.
n Make a second cut from the top side of the limb outboard
from the first cut.
WARNING:
n Make a final cut close to trunk.
To avoid kickback, binding of the saw bar, and possible
injury, never cut limbs that the pruner does not reach
when supported by the shoulder strap.

N
 OTE: For second and final cuts (from top of limb or branch),
hold front cutting guide against the limb being cut. This will
help steady the limb and make it easier to cut. Allow chain to
cut for you; exert only light downward pressure. If you force
the cut, damage to the bar, chain, or engine can result.
n Release the trigger as soon as the cut is completed, allowing the engine to idle. If you run the pruner at full throttle
without a cutting load, unnecessary wear or damage can
occur to the chain, bar, and engine.

n Work slowly, keeping both hands on the saw with a firm
grip. Maintain secure footing and balance.
Failure to follow proper cutting procedures will result in the
bar and chain binding and becoming pinched or trapped in
the limb. If this should happen:
n Stop the engine.
n Keep the tree between you and the chain while limbing.
Cut from side of tree opposite branch you are cutting.
n Do not cut from a ladder; this is extremely dangerous.
Leave this operation for professionals.
n Loosen the knob on the coupler.
n Do not make the flush cut next to the main limb or trunk
until you have cut off the limb further out to reduce the
weight. Following proper cutting procedures will prevent
stripping the bark from the main member.
n Depress the button on the shaft; twist and pull the shafts
to separate the pruner from the power head.
n If the limb can be reached from the ground, lift the limb
while holding the attachment. This should release the
“pinch” and free the pruner.
n Do not use the pruner for felling or bucking.
n If the pruner is still trapped, call a professional for assistance.
n To prevent electrocution, do not operate within 50 ft. of
overhead electrical lines.
Limbing and Pruning
n Keep bystanders at least 50 ft. away.
See Figures 7 - 8.
This unit is designed for trimming small branches and limbs
up to 6 in. in diameter. For best results, observe the following precautions.
n Plan the cut carefully. Be aware of the direction in which
the branch will fall.
n Branches may fall in unexpected directions. Do not stand
directly under the branch being cut.
n The most typical cutting application is to position the
unit at an angle of 60° or less, depending on the specific
situation, as shown. As the angle of the pruner shaft to
ground increases, the difficulty of making the first cut
(from the underside of limb) increases.
Fig. 8
n Remove long branches in several stages.
n Cut lower branches first to allow the top branches more
room to fall.

Idle Speed Adjustment
BAR LUBE
RESERVOIR
See Figure 21.
If the chain turns at idle, the idle speed screw needs adjusting
on the engine. Turn the idle speed screw counterclockwise
to reduce the idle RPM and stop the chain movement. If
the saw chain still moves at idle speed, contact a service
dealer for adjustment and discontinue use until the repair
is made.

WARNING:
The saw chain should never turn at idle. Turn the idle
speed screw counterclockwise to reduce the idle RPM
and stop the chain, or contact a service dealer for adjustment and discontinue use until the repair is made.
Serious personal injury may result from the saw chain
turning at idle.

Chain Maintenance
See Figure 23.
For smooth and fast cutting, the chain needs to be maintained properly. The following conditions indicate that the
chain requires sharpening: nWood chips are small and powdery
nChain must be forced through the wood during cutting
nChain cuts to one side
During maintenance of the chain, consider the following:
nImproper filing angle of the side plate can increase the
risk of a severe kickback.
IDLE
SPEED SCREW
nDepth gauge (or raker clearance) setting determines the
height the cutter enters the wood and the size of the wood
chip that is removed. Too much clearance increases the
potential for kickback. Too little clearance decreases the
size of the wood chip thus decreasing the chain's cutting
ability.
Fig. 21
automatic bar and chain lubrication
nIf cutter teeth have hit hard objects such as nails and
stones, or have been abraded by mud or sand on the
wood, have service dealer sharpen chain.
See Figure 22.
nUse Premium Bar and Chain Lubricant. It is designed for
chains and chain oilers and is formulated to perform over
a wide temperature range with no dilution required.

nPut a few firm strokes on every tooth. File all left hand
cutters in one direction. Then move to the other side and
file the right hand cutters in the opposite direction. Occasionally remove filings from the file with a wire brush.
How to Sharpen the Cutters
See Figures 24 - 27.
Be careful to file all cutters to the specified angles and to
the same length, as fast cutting can be obtained only when
all cutters are uniform.

nTighten the chain tension enough that the chain does not
wobble. Do all of your filing at the mid-point of the bar.
Wear gloves for protection.
CAUTION:
nUse a 5/32 in. diameter round file and holder.
Dull or improperly sharpened chain can cause excessive
engine speed during cutting which may result in severe
engine damage.
nKeep the file level with the top plate of the tooth. Do not
let the file dip or rock.
WARNING:
Improper chain sharpening increases the potential of
kickback. Failure to replace or repair damaged chain can
cause serious injury.
CLEANING THE EXHAUST PORT AND
MUFFLER
Fig. 25
Depending on the type of fuel used, the type and amount
of lubricant used, and/or your operating conditions, the
exhaust port and muffler may become blocked with carbon
deposits. If you notice a power loss with your gas powered
tool, a qualified service technician will need to remove these
deposits to restore performance.
nUsing light but firm pressure, stroke towards the front
corner of the tooth. Lift file away from the steel on each
return stroke.
SPARK ARRESTOR
The spark arrestor must be replaced every 50 hours or yearly
to ensure proper performance of the product. Spark arrestors may be in different locations depending on the model
purchased. Please contact the nearest service dealer for the

WARRANTY
The following California Air Resources Board (CARB) statement only applies to model numbers required to meet the CARB requirements.
TECHTRONIC INDUSTRIES NORTH AMERICA, INC., LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT FOR FEDERAL
AND CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS NON-ROAD AND SMALL OFF-ROAD ENGINES
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board
(CARB), and Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., are pleased to explain the
Emissions Control System Warranty on your 2008 model year non-road or small offroad engine. In California, new equipment that uses small off-road engines must be
designed, built, and equipped to meet the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. In
other states, new 2000 and later model year non-road engines must be designed,
built, and equipped at the time of sale to meet the U.S. EPA regulations for small
non-road engines. The non-road engine must be free from defects in materials and
workmanship which cause it to fail to conform with U.S. EPA standards for the first
two years of engine use from the date of sale to the ultimate purchaser. Techtronic
Industries North America, Inc., must warrant the emission control system on your
non-road or small off-road engine for the period of time listed above provided there

Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., shall remedy warranty defects at any
authorized RYOBI® Authorized Service Center, including any distribution center
that may be franchised to service the subject engines. Any diagnostic work done
at a RYOBI® Authorized Service Center shall be free of charge to the owner if such
work determines that a warranted part is defective. Any manufacturer-approved or
equivalent replacement part may be used for any warranty maintenance or repairs
on emission-related parts, and must be provided free of charge to the owner if the
part is still under warranty. 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,

OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
(a) As the non-road or small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for
the performance of the required maintenance listed in your operator’s manual.
Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your non-road or small off-road engine, but
Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., cannot deny warranty solely for the

and durability may be used in non-warranty maintenance or repairs, and shall
not reduce the warranty obligations of Techtronic Industries North America, Inc.
(b) As the non-road or small off-road engine owner, you should be aware, however,
that Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., may deny you warranty coverage if
your non-road or small off-road engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect,
improper maintenance, or unapproved modifications.
(c) You are responsible for presenting your non-road or small off-road engine to an
authorized service dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should
be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you
should contact a Techtronic Industries North America, Inc., Customer Representative at 1-800-860-4050.
DEFECT WARRANTY COVERAGE REQUIREMENTS:
(a) The warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered to
an ultimate purchaser.
(b) General Emissions Warranty Coverage. Techtronic Industries North America,
Inc., warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that your
non-road or small off-road engine is designed, built, and equipped at the time of sale
to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by the California Air Resources
Board or the United States Environmental Protection Agency; and that it is free from
defects in materials and workmanship which cause the engine to fail to conform with
applicable regulations for a period of two years from the date the non-road or small
off-road engine is purchased by the initial purchaser.
(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 RYOBI® Authorized Service Center for no charge until
that replacement point is reached.
