BuI-r ON
- . • Each-time the injector button is pressed and
-.+.:_- ---released, fuel is forced'from'the
fuel tank to
'- the accumulator c:hamber.
• The accumulator chamber provides a secondary fuel supply until the carburetor can
obtain fuel through the primary line
• When the accumulator chamber is full, fuel
is injected into the carburetor manifold to
provide a rich mixture for starting.
Excess fuel escapes through a drain to
prevent the engine from flooding
if the
injector button is pressed too many times.
As a result, a few drops of fuel may appear
on the ground during the starting procedure.

squeezing and keeping the throttle trigger
fully depressed
until the engine runs
smoothly.
e. Press the injector button down fully allowing the button to return completely after
each pressing. Follow conditions and injections listed.
Conditions
POINTS TO REMEMBER
a. If the engine starts to die immediately after
starting, keep throttle trigger depressed
and press injector button once with forefinger to give unit additional fuel.
b. If the engine is stopped momentarily (less
than 5 minutes), it probably will not require
an injection.
c. If unit runs out of fuel or is drained for storage "First Starting" procedure may be required because the system will be dry.
d. After starting and engine runs smoothly,
keep unit running at half speed until engine
is warmed up to proper idle.
e Usinggasoline orfuelmix over2 months old
will cause the engine to be difficult or impossible to start!

USING YOUR UNIT
Your Trimmer is equipped with a semi-automatic advancing
cutting head that cuts with the tip of a monofilament nylon line.
The nylon cutting line will easily remove grass and
weeds from around walls, fences, trees, and flower
beds, but it also can cut the tender bark of trees or
shrubs and scar fences. For this reason, it is very
important to learn the proper techniques of cutting
around and near objects.
The nylon cutting line will wear faster and will
require being advanced more frequently when you
are cutting against rocks, bricks,concrete, metal fences,
etc., than against trees or wooden fences.
The cuttinghead
--if
will wear prematurely:
allowed to continuously

B. ADVANCING
THE CUTTING
Inspect the area to be cut.
Remove all debris and objects that can ricochet, be
thrown,become entangledinthe cuttinghead orotherwise cause injuryor damage during cutting.
6. Keep observers, children, bystanders, and animals
safely away.
Beforestarting the engine and during operation,make
certainchildren,animalsand bystandersare awayfrom
the work area - a minimum of 30 feet (10 meters).
LINE
• The cutting line is extended semi-automatically by
tapping thebottom ofthe head on the ground with
.the engine_running.
k.• Approximately 2 Inches oflinelsextended
each
time the tap button is tapped on the ground,
• The line,miter on the splash deflector cuts line to
a maximum allowable length.
• The most efficient cutting line length Is the maximum length allowed by the line Iimiter.
1. To advance line:
a. Operate the engine at fullthrottle.
b. Hold cutting head parallel to and above the
grassy area of the ground.
c. Tap the cutting head lightly on the ground one
time. See Figure 12. Approximately 2 inches of
line will be advanced after each tap.
NOTE: If the line is worn down to two inches or
less, more than one tap may be required to
obtain the most efficient line cutting length.
10
Always wear eye protection. The
splash deflector/line limiter will not
prevent rocks and debris from being
thrown or ricocheting into the eyes
and face which can result in loss of vision or
serious personal injury.
3. Dress safely in long pants-and wear boots or
safety shoes.
Do not wear Iooseclothing, jewelry, short pants or
sandals; or go barefoot.
--if the line limiter is not kept sharp.
WARNING
Use only flexible, non-metalic, monofllament cutting
line. Do not use other materials such as rope, wire, etc.
Wire can break off during cutting and become a
dangerous missile.
INSTRUCTIONS
2. Always keep the splash deflector in place when
the unit Is being operated.
- 3. Keep the line Iimitersharpfor fast, easycut-off.
See page 13for sharpening instructions.

METHODS
• The tip of the line does the cutting. Allow the unit
to trim at its own pace. You wilJachieve better results
by not crowding the line into the cutting area. The right
way and wrong way are shown in Figure 13.
• Always cut left to right,
.
TRIMMING -- Figure 14
Hold the cutting head at a 30 degree angle to the
cutting area for efficient trimming. Do not force the

cause damage toyourunitas well as scalp the ground.
4. SCALPING -- Figure 17
To remove unwanted vegetation around trees, posts,
monuments, etc., maintain a 30 degree angle with the
cutting head and allow the tip of thecutting line to
strike the ground.
