OPERATE YOUR UNIT SAFELY
WARNING: This unit is intended for
blower use only. Do not attempt to open inlet
cover. Opened or damaged inlet cover can result in serious injury. Discontinue use of blower immediately if inlet cover becomes opened
or damaged. Take unit to your nearest authorized service dealer for repair.

room, building or other unventilated area.
Breathing exhaust fumes can kill.
D To avoid static electricity shock, do not
wear rubber gloves or any other insulated
gloves while operating unit.
D Do not set unit on any surface except a
clean, hard area while engine is running.
Debris such as gravel, sand, dust, grass,
etc. could be picked up by the air intake and

SPECIAL NOTICE: Exposure to vibrations through prolonged use of gasoline powered hand tools could cause blood vessel or
nerve damage in the fingers, hands, and
joints of people prone to circulation disorders
or abnormal swelling. Prolonged use in cold
weather has been linked to blood vessel damage in otherwise healthy people. If symptoms
occur such as numbness, pain, loss of
D
strength, change in skin color or texture, or
loss of feeling in the fingers, hands, or joints,
discontinue the use of this tool and seek
medical attention. An antivibration system
does not guarantee the avoidance of these
problems. Users who operate power tools on
a continual and regular basis must monitor
closely their physical condition and the condition of this tool.
SPECIAL NOTICE: For users on U.S. Forest Land and in some states, including California (Public Resources Codes 4442 and
4443), Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey,
Oregon, and Washington: Certain internal
combustion engines operated on forest,
brush, and/or grass covered land in the above
areas are required to be equipped with a
spark arresting screen, maintained in effective working order, or the engine must be constructed, equipped, and maintained for the
prevention of fire. Check with your state or local authorities for regulations pertaining to
these requirements. Failure to follow these
requirements is a violation of the law. This unit
is not factory equipped with a spark arresting
screen; however, a spark arresting screen is
available as an optional part. If a spark arresting screen is required in your area, contact
your authorized service dealer for the correct
kit. The spark arresting screen, blower tubes,
and nozzles must be assembled to unit to be
in full compliance with regulations.

fore installing or removing attachments. Do
not operate without guard(s) in place.
Operate power equipment only at reasonable
hours--not early in the morning or late at night
when people might be disturbed. Comply with
times listed in local ordinances. Usual recommendations are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday though Saturday.
To reduce noise levels, limit the number of
pieces of equipment used at any one time.
To reduce noise levels, operate power
blowers at the lowest possible throttle
speed to do the job.
Use rakes and brooms to loosen debris before blowing.
In dusty conditions, slightly dampen surfaces or use a mister attachment when water is available.
Conserve water by using power blowers
instead of hoses for many lawn and garden
applications, including areas such as gutters,
screens, patios, grills, porches, and gardens.
Watch out for children, pets, open windows,
or freshly washed cars. Blow debris away
safely.
S Use the full blower nozzle extension so the
air stream can work close to the ground.
S After using blowers and other equipment,
CLEAN UP! Dispose of debris in trash receptacles.
NOTE: Unit must be placed on its side when
adding fuel (see illustration below).
BEFORE STARTING ENGINE
WARNING: Be sure to read the fuel
information in the safety rules before you begin. If you do not understand the safety rules,
do not attempt to fuel your unit. Call
1-800-554-6723.
FUELING ENGINE
WARNING:
when refueling.
Remove fuel cap slowly
HELPFUL TIP
To obtain the correct oil mix
ratio, pour 3.2 ounces of
2-- cycle synthetic oil into
one gallon of fresh gas.
This engine is certified to operate on unleaded
gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be
mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle
air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a
ratio of 40:1. Poulan/WEED EATER brand
synthetic oil is recommended. Mix gasoline and
oil at a ratio of 40:1. A 40:1 ratio is obtained by
mixing 3.2 ounces (95 ml) of oil with 1 gallon (4
liters) of unleaded gasoline. DO NOT USE
automotive oil or boat oil. These oils will cause
engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow
instructions printed on container. Once oil is
added to gasoline, shake container momentarily
to assure that the fuel is thoroughly mixed.
Always read and follow the safety rules relating
to fuel before fueling your unit.
TO STOP THE ENGINE
D
To stop the engine, move the throttle lever
to the STOP position.
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
WARNING: You MUST make sure
the tubes are secure before using the unit.
D Fuel engine. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from the fueling site.
D Hold the unit in the starting position as
shown. Make sure the blower end is directed away from people, animals, glass,
and solid objects.
STARTING POSITION
IMPORTANT
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or
methanol) can attract moisture which leads to
separation and formation of acids during
storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel
system of an engine while in storage. To avoid
engine problems, empty the fuel system
before storage for 30 days or longer. Drain the
gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh
fuel next season. Never use engine or
carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or
permanent damage may occur.
WARNING: When starting engine,
hold the unit as illustrated. Do not set unit on any
surface except a clean, hard area when starting
engine or while engine is running. Debris such
as gravel, sand, dust, grass, etc. could be
picked up by the air intake and thrown out
through the discharge opening, damaging the
unit or property, or causing serious injury to bystanders or the operator.
HELPFUL TIP

Cleaning the air filter:
A dirty air filter decreases engine performance and increases fuel consumption and
harmful emissions. Always clean or replace
air filter after every 5 hours of operation or
yearly, whichever comes first.
1. Clean the cover and the area around it to
keep debris from falling into the carburetor
chamber when the cover is removed.
2. Remove parts as illustrated.
NOTE: Do not clean filter in gasoline or other
flammable solvent. Doing so can create a fire
hazard or produce harmful evaporative emissions.
3. Wash the filter in soap and water.
4. Allow filter to dry.
5. Apply a few drops of oil to the filter;
squeeze filter to distribute oil.
6. Replace parts.
REPLACE SPARK PLUG
Replace spark plug each year to ensure the
engine starts easier and runs better. Set
spark plug gap at 0.025 inch (0.6 mm). Ignition timing is fixed, nonadjustable.
1. Twist, then pull off spark plug boot.
2. Remove spark plug from cylinder and discard.
3. Replace with Champion RCJ-6Y spark
plug and tighten securely with a 3/4 inch
(19 mm) socket wrench.
4. Reinstall the spark plug boot.
Once each year, ensure muffler mounting
screws are secure and tightened properly to
prevent damage.

engine speed. The throttle lever can be
placed in one of four positions: STOP, IDLE
, FULL THROTTLE or
, and one
or
intermittent position. If your engine will not run
properly or you require further assistance,
contact an authorized service dealer or call
1--800--554--6723.
STORAGE
WARNING:

FUEL SYSTEM
Under FUELING ENGINE in the OPERATION section of this manual, see message labeled IMPORTANT regarding the use of gasohol in your engine.
Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in
minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits
during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel
tank or fuel storage container. Follow the mix
instructions found on stabilizer container. Run
engine at least 5 minutes after adding stabilizer.
HELPFUL TIP
During storage of your gas/
oil mixture, the oil will separate from the gas.
We recommend that you
shake the gas can weekly
to insure proper blending of
the gas and oil.
