Remove two nuts & bolts (key #’s 11 & 81), holding handle supports (key #’s 41 & 61) to lower handle (key #44). 2. Align upper handle (key #77) with lower handle (key #44) and replace the two nuts and bolts that were removed in step one. 3. Use two bolts & nuts (Key # 80 & 11) in the upper holes of the handles - now tighten all four bolts. 4. Use a #10-32 x 1 1/4 screw and lock nut (key #’s 82 & 83) to connect the upper adjusting rod (key #64) to the lower adjusting rod (key #55). 5. Remove cotter pin and washer (key #’s 40 & 25) from belt slackener lever (key #71) and place elongated loop of the draw bar (key #72) onto the belt slackener lever. Place washer back on and install cotter pin bending the legs once it is in place. 6. Remove the cotter pin (key #40) from the clevis pin (key #60) and slide the clevis pin out of its hole. Place the round hole of the draw bar (key #72) between the two holes of the link belt slackener (key #43) and slide clevis pin back in place. 7. Replace cotter pin and bend the legs. Fig. 1 8. Rotate the mud flap (key #38) out from under the machine so that it is as far forward as possible without touching the blade while the edger is in its lowest position and the rubber flap is bent forward. Tighten from underneath. 9. Place blade guard (key # 23) on cutter head assembly (key # 15) as shown in fig. 2, and install 5/16 washers, lock washers, and screws (key #’s 25, 4 & 22). NOTE: The blade guard has slotted holes for adjusting. Location of the blade guard should be adjusted so that the bottom of the guard just clears the ground while edging. 10. Remove 1/2 -20 nut (key # 16) and one washer (key # 6), place blade (key # 17) on shaft, then reinstall washer and nut. 5 Fig. 2 Fig. 3 6 THROTTLE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS 1. Remove the air filter cover from the engine. 2. Use a 10mm socket to loosen the throttle lever pivot nut. 3. Move the remote throttle lever all the way to slow (turtle) position. Move it 1/16” - 1/8” back towards the fast (rabbit) position. 4. Move the engine throttle lever to the slow position (push throttle lever to the front of the edger). 5. Remove the throttle cable retaining clamp and screw from the engine. 6. Insert the end of the throttle cable into the hole on the engine throttle lever. 7. Place the cable-retaining clamp over the cable, insert the screw in and pull back and tighten. 8. Replace the air filter cover. 9. The remote throttle lever should move from slow to fast and be approximately centered in its slot. 10. If the throttle feels tight, loosen the engine throttle lever pivot nut. 11. If the throttle does not stay where it is placed, tighten the remote throttle lever pivot nut (key # 63). Fig. 4 7 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS WARNING A. BEFORE STARTING DANGER ALL LITTLE WONDER EDGERS ARE SHIPPED WITHOUT OIL. WHEN FILLING OIL- USE SAE 30 OIL. REFER TO ENGINE MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR PROPER ENGINE OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS. 1. Place Edger on level surface; be sure blade is not obstructed and the area is clear and free of bystanders. 2. Check oil level, and be sure crankcase is filled with oil. 3. Fill gas tank with fresh gas. Do not mix gas with oil. NOTE: Refer to the engine Operating and Maintenance Instructions for recommended grades of oil and gas. E.OPERATING 4 For easier starting, remove belt tension by pulling up the belt slackener lever (P/N 167-2). 1. Eye protection must be worn at all times. Use common sense and exercise caution at all times when operating your Edger. 1. For easier starting, remove belt tension by pulling up the belt slackener lever (P/N 167-2). 2. Operate in a safe manner. When edging, the potential exists for thrown objects which can cause injury (i.e.) from rocks, cement, pieces of steel, glass, etc. These obstructions should be avoided at all times. 2. Prior to starting the engine, secure and hold the edger handle with your left hand. 3. Never leave the machine when the engine is running, particularly on hills where the unit might roll. 3. Refer to your Engine Operator/Owner Manual for Engine Starting Instructions. 4. Setting depth of blade. (1) Place left hand on upper handle. (2) Grasp lever, P/N 228, with right hand and pull to the right, which disengages lever from rachet segment on handle. Move lever forward or backward along rachet segment and insert key on lever into notch on rachet at the desired depth. Moving lever forward decreases depth of cut, moving lever backward increases depth of cut. B. STARTING PROCEDURE 4. Once the engine starts, set the throttle control lever to desired speed. NOTE: A warm engine requires less choking than a cold engine. C. STOP PROCEDURE 1. Pull throttle lever towards you to STOP position. 2. Turn engine switch to OFF position. 6. Engine speed - The engine speed should be kept to the minimum consistent with the job at hand. Speeds higher than necessary will only cause undue wear and tear. A speed half-way between “fast” and “slow” is normally adequate. Tougher jobs may require higher speeds. 7. Little Wonder Edgers provide the finishing touch. They edge at any angle along flower beds, terraces, sidewalks and curbs. They trim along buildings, trees, walks, marker hedges and fences with ease and reliability. D. CAUTION 1. Do not change the engine governor settings or overspeed the engine. 8. Edging - The blade should be perpendicular to the ground or sidewalk. The cutting depth should be sufficient to cut away the root system, usually 1” to 1 1/2” deep. Along flush sidewalks or driveways, it is easier to place the wheels on the sidewalk or driveway rather than the grass. The hardened tool steel blade, P/N 129, becomes its own guide if it is permitted to rub against the side or edge of the sidewalk or driveway. Angles other than vertical my be desirable when edging flower beds, walls, posts, etc. When edging along a curve, the rear wheels should be held off the ground so the machine may be maneuvered “wheelbarrow fashion.” 2. If the product vibrates abnormally, immediately stop the engine and check for the cause. Vibration is generally a warning sign of trouble. 3. Stop the engine whenever you leave the operating position; disconnect the spark plug lead wire before unclogging the unit, when making a repair, adjustment, inspection or the like. 4. Operate machine from position where guards block the line of sight to the cutting member. 8 USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS 1. Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight. WARNING: The engine on your Pro Honda Edger is not equipped with a spark arrester and if machine is to be used on any forest-covered, brush-covered, or grass-covered unimproved land, before using on such land a spark arrester must be added to the muffler. The arrester must be maintained in effective working order by the operator. In the State of California, the above is required by law (Section 4442 of the California Public Resources Code). Other states may have similar laws. Federal laws apply on federal lands. See your Authorized Honda Service Center for spark arrester muffler options. 2. Never store the machine filled with fuel inside a building or in a confined space where fumes may be susceptible to sparks or an open flame. 3. Refer to the instructions manual for important details if the product is to be stored for an extended period of time. 4. Check the tightness of the blade nut prior to each use. 5. Prior to each use, lubricate cutter head shaft (P/N 131A), cutter head bracket (P/N l00C), and key (P/N 138) at slip rotation points every 8 hours 6. Prior to each use, check to see that set screws on pulley are tight, and guards are in place. NOTE: The belt guard is vital to the proper operation of the edger. The belt guard is not just a safety feature! NOTE: The belt guard is an important safety feature and is vital to the proper operation of the edger. Fig. 5 Loose set screws can cause damage to shaft and pulley. Improper maintenance will void warranty. 9 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE CORRECTIVE ACTION A. Engine will not start 1.
