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 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 anti- vibration 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:

This unit is equipped with a temperature limiting muffler and spark arresting screen which meets the requirements of California Codes 4442 and 4443. All

U.S. forest land and the states of California,

Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington require by law that many internal combustion engines be equipped with a spark arresting screen. If you operate in a locale where such regulations exist, you are legally responsible for maintaining the operating condition of these parts. Failure to do so is a violation of the law. For normal homeowner use, the muffler and spark arresting screen will not require any service. After

50 hours of use, we recommend that your muffler be serviced or replaced by your authorized service dealer.

THROTTLE LEVER

The throttle lever is used to select the desired engine speed and to stop the engine. To stop engine, move the throttle lever to the STOP position.

PRIMER BULB

The PRIMER BULB removes air from the carburetor and fuel lines and fills them with fuel.

This allows you to start the engine with fewer pulls on the starter rope. Activate the primer bulb by pressing it and allowing it to return to its original form.

CHOKE LEVER

The CHOKE helps to supply fuel to the engine to aid in cold starting. The CHOKE OFF position is used for full speed operation. The 1/2 position is used for a brief initial warm-up period and to set the engine at idle speed.

OPERATING POSITION

Eye

Protection

OPERATING TIPS

S

To reduce the risk of hearing loss associated with sound level(s), hearing protection is required.

S

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.

S

To reduce noise levels, operate power blowers at the lowest possible throttle speed to do the job.

S

To reduce noise levels, limit the number of pieces of equipment used at any one time.

S

Use rakes and brooms to loosen debris before blowing.

S

In dusty conditions, slightly dampen surfaces when water is available.

S

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.

S

Watch out for children, pets, open windows, or freshly washed cars. Blow debris away safely.

S

Use the full blower tube 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.

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

FUELING ENGINE

WARNING:

Remove fuel cap slowly when refueling.

-- 5 --

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 fluid 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.

CAUTION:

Never use straight gasoline in your unit. This will cause permanent engine damage and void the limited warranty.

FUEL REQUIREMENTS

This engine requires the use of minimum 87 octane [R+M]/2 clean gasoline.

IMPORTANT

Use of alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can cause major engine performance and durability problems.

WARNING:

Alternative fuels (not gasoline) such as E--15 (15% alcohol), E--20

(20% alcohol), E--85 (85% alcohol) are NOT classified as gasoline and are NOT approved for use in 2--stroke gasoline engines. Use of alternative fuels will cause problems such as: improper clutch engagements, overheating, vapor lock, power loss, lubrication deficiency, deterioration of fuel lines, gaskets and internal carburetor components, etc. Alternative fuels cause high moisture absorption into the fuel/oil mixture leading to oil and fuel separation.

TO STOP THE ENGINE

D

To stop the engine, move the throttle lever to the STOP position.
