A.
Break-In Procedure
Fuel Mixture
Your Mantis Single Edge Hedge Trimmer is powered by an
Echo Model SV-5H/2. This model has a two stroke, air cooled
engine which requires a fuel mixture of gasoline and 2-stroke
oil.
There are no special requirements for engine break-in. After
normal operation and two (2) tanks of fuel, engine break-in is
complete.
If adjustments are necessary, follow Special Carburetor
Adjustment Procedures on this supplementary Operator's
Information Sheet. All other adjustments and maintenance
procedures are in the complete Owner’s Manual.
1. Important Engine Information
This unit is certified to operate on approved two-stroke
fuel (a mixture of 2-stroke oil and gasoline/ gasohol).
2. Fuel Statement
Gasoline - Use 89 Octane [R+M/2] gasoline or gasohol
known to be good quality. Gasohol may contain up to 10%
Ethanol (grain alcohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl
ether). Gasohol containing methanol (wood alcohol) is NOT
approved.
3. Two-Stroke Oil
A two-stroke engine oil meeting proposed ISO-L-EGD
Standard (ISO/CD 13738), must be used. Mantis brand
Premium 50:1 oil meets this proposed standard. Engine problems
due to inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-LEGD approved oil, such as Mantis Premium 50:1 Two-stroke
Oil, will void the two-stroke engine warranty. (Emission
related parts only are covered for two years, regardless of twostroke oil used, per the statement listed in the EPA California
Emission Defect Warranty Explanation.)
B.
Mixing Fuel
1. Pour 1/2 of the gasoline into a safe container. DO NOT
mix fuel in the engine fuel tank.
2. Add the oil to the gasoline and mix.
3. Add the remaining gasoline and remix.
4. Install fuel cap and wipe spilled fuel from container and area.
5. Important, two stroke fuel separates and ages. Do not
mix more than you will use in a month. Shake fuel container to
thoroughly mix fuel before each use. Do not attempt to run
your engine on gasoline only, use the proper fuel mixture.

3. Starting with the screw nearest the gear housing, tighten the screw
until the blade guard of the single edge trimmer can just be moved
with finger pressure and a .0015" (1 1/2 thou.) feeler blade just slips
under the blade guard. Tighten the locknuts while holding the screw
stationary in its correct adjusted position.
Blade Adjustment
The care and adjustment of the blades is very important to the
efficient operation of the trimmer and especially to the long life of
the engine.
1. Place trimmer in vise, clamping on the frame bar. Be careful! Blades
are sharp!
2. Using a 7/16” wrench, loosen all blade locknuts and unscrew the
large head screws by two turns.
4. Repeat Step 3 on the screws in turn until all are
correctly adjusted.
NOTE: Correct blade adjustment can only be achieved on clean,
oiled blades.

Carburetor Adjustment
e. Idle Speed Adjustment
1. General
Units with Cutting Attachments.
Turn "idle" speed adjustment screw CW (clockwise) until
cutting attachment begins to turn, then turn screw out
CCW (counter clockwise) until attachment stops turning.
Turn screw out, CCW, an additional 1/4 turn.
NOTE: The diaphragm carburetor has three external
adjustments. Each adjustment affects the others.
The idle speed adjustment screw controls the throttle opening
at idle position.
The low (LO) speed adjustment screw controls the volume of
fuel mixture at low engine speed. It also controls the
supplementary fuel required to obtain smooth progression from
idling to high speed.
The high (HI) speed adjustment screw controls the volume of
fuel mixture at full throttle.
f. Start unit and accelerate to full throttle for 2-3 seconds to
clear any excess fuel in the engine, then return to idle.
Accelerate engine to full throttle to check for smooth
transition from idle to high speed. If engine hesitates turn
LO needle CCW 1/8 turn and repeat acceleration. Continue
adjustment until smooth acceleration results.
g. Check idle speed and reset if necessary as described in “item
e” above. If a tachometer is available idle speed should be
set as specified in the Owner’s Manual.
2. Carburetor Adjustment
Every unit is run at the factory and the carburetor is set in
compliance with EPA California Emission Regulations. In
addition, the carburetor is equipped with HI and LO needle
adjustment limiters that prevent settings outside acceptable
limits. Limiter caps must remain or be replaced on both the Hi
and Lo carburetor adjusting screws. There is no limiter cap on
the idle screw.
NOTE: The needle screws have a sharp point. To avoid damage
to the carburetor, do not use excessive force.
a. Before adjusting carburetor clean or replace air filter and
muffler, "Spark Arrestor Screen".
Important: Do not run the engine at full throttle or with no
load for more than 5-6 seconds to avoid engine damage.
Note: This hedge trimmer is equipped with a speed limiting
carburetor (the high speed circuit has a by-pass system). With
this feature the engine will continue to run even with the high
speed adjusting screw turned all the way in. Although the engine
will continue to run, it will only produce full power with the HI
adjusting screw opened to about 3/8 to 1/2 turn.
b. Make sure the cutting attachment such as hedge clipper
blades are properly adjusted.
WARNING - DANGER
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM THE BLADES WHILE
SERVICING THE HEDGE TRIMMER. BE SURE TRIMMER
IS SECURED AND BLADES ARE GUARDED WHILE
MAKING ADJUSTMENTS.
HI
LOW
F.
IDLE SCREW
c. Start engine and run several minutes to bring to operating
temperature. Flash choke twice during warm-up to clear any
air from the fuel system.
NOTE: The Idle speed screws may have to be re-adjusted to
keep engine from stalling. The Engine must be at normal
operating temperature to adjust properly.
d. Stop engine. Turn HI speed needle counter-clockwise to stop.
Turn LO speed needle midway between full clockwise stop
and counter-clockwise stop.
