REFER TO PARTS EXPLOSION AND ILLUSTRATION AND
ASSEMBLY YOUR PRO MODEL EDGER AS FOLLOWS:
1. Install lower handle P/N 199, to handle extensions P/N
186L and P/N 186R which are mounted on axle. Use two cap
screws P/N 129C, and two nuts P/N 114B and tighten securely.
2. Install lift handle P/N 187 on engine stud with nut P/N
114B, P/N 217 (Cat. #6031K only). Place curved end of lift
handle over lower handle P/N 199 and insert cap screw P/N
144-1, and nut P/N 972.
3. Use the four cap screws P/N 144-1 and nuts P/N 972 to
assemble the handle to the main edger assembly. Cap screw P/N
378 and nut P/N 972 are used to assemble the throttle P/N 188 or
P/N 214 (Cat. #6031K only) to handle assembly.
4. Assembled loose on lower adjusting handle are nut P/N 973
and cap screw P/N 208. Remove nut and install upper adjusting
handle P/N 155E, replace nut, and secure.
5. The adjusting rod is then inserted in the adjusting rod
clamps, P/N 153 which are placed on the brace bolt right, P/N
152 which has been preassembled on the handle. Secure the
knob, P/N 154.
6. Assemble draw rod, P/N 198 as shown in figure 1. Remove
cotter pin P/N 156, and washer, P/N 163 from lever belt
slackener P/N 167 located on upper handle. Place elongated loop
in draw rod on belt slackener lever. Reinstall washer and replace
and bend legs of cotterpin. Remove cotterpin P/N 156, and clevis
pin P/N170, from belt slackener P/N 169. Place round hole in
draw rod between legs of belt slackener. Reinstall clevis pin
through belt slackener and draw rod and replace and bend legs of
7. The blade guard, P/N 129B is installed on the flange of the
cutter head, P/N 126. Place flat washers, P/N 163 against outside
surface of blade guard, place lock washer, P/N 129D under head
of cap screws, P/N 129C. Screw cap screws, into tapped holes in
flange of cutter head. Location of blade guard, should be adjusted
so the bottom of the guard just clears the ground when edging. Set
to the desired position and tighten cap screws.
8. Remove nut, P/N 130 and one washer, P/N 128 and install
blade, P/N129. Replace washer and tighten. Be sure to install
washers, with flat side against blade.
9. Rotate mud flap, P/N 209 to a position directly behind, and
perpendicular to blade guard, P/N 129B. Tighten nut P/N 114B,
and cap screw P/N 129C to secure mud flap to edger.
YOUR PRO EDGER IS NOW ASSEMBLED.
A. BEFORE STARTING
1. Place Edger on level surface, be sure blade is not obstructed
and the area is clear and free of bystanders. Your Edger is
equipped with a Briggs & Stratton or Kawasaki 4 cycle engine.
2. Check oil level, be sure crankcase is filled with oil.
3. Fill gas tank with fresh gas. Do not mix gas with oil.
NOTE: Refer to Briggs & Stratton or Kawasaki Operating and
Maintenance Instructions for recommended grades of oil and gas.
1. Your Edger is equipped with remote or Choke-a-Matic, and
remote stop switch. To start, move lever on throttle control as
far forward as possible to START position.
NOTE: A warm engine requires less choking than a cold engine.
2. Remove belt tension by pulling the belt slackener lever, P/N
167, up. This provides easier starting.
3. Hold the handle of Edger with your left hand and pull the
rewind starter grip with your right hand.
4. Once engine starts, move throttle control lever to desired
minimum or maximum range as required.
1. Do not change the engine governor settings or overspeed the
2. If the product vibrates abnormally, immediately stop the
engine and check for the cause. Vibration is generally a warning
3. Stop the engine whenever you leave the operating position:
disconnect the spark plug lead before unclogging the cutting
member guard, when making a repair, adjustment inspection, or
4. Operate edger from position where guards block the line of
sight to the cutting member.
1. Use common sense and exercise caution at all times when
operating your edger.
2. Your Little Wonder edger has been carefully designed to
eliminate hazards; however, when edging, the potential exists for
blows from rocks, cement, pieces of steel, glass, etc. These
obstructions should be avoided at all times.
3. Never leave the Edger when the engine is running, particularly
on hills where the Edger might roll.
4. Setting depth of blade. (1) Place left hand on upper handle,
P/N 142, loosen knob, P/N 154 with right hand, grasp adjusting
rod upper, P/N 155E with right hand. By pulling adjusting rod,
you lower blade for deeper cuts. By pushing adjusting rod, you
raise blade for shallow cuts. Retighten knob, P/N 154 when
desired setting is achieved.
5. 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 halfway
between “idling” and “wide open” is normally adequate. Tougher
jobs may require higher speeds.
6. Little Wonder Edgers provide the finishing touch. They edge
along flower beds, terraces, sidewalks and curbs.
7. Edging — The blade is perpendicular to the ground or
sidewalk. The cutting depth should be sufficient to cut away the
root structure, usually 1 to 1Y2” deep. Along flush sidewalks or
drives and when possible it is easier to place the wheels on the
cement 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 cement. When edging along a curve, the rear
wheels should be held off the ground so that the machine may be
maneuvered “wheelbarrow fashion.”
USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight.
2. Never store the edger trimmer with fuel in the fuel tank inside
a building where fumes may reach an open flame or sparks, or in a
confined space such as a car trunk.
3. Always refer to the instruction manual for important details if
the product is to be stored for an extended period.
4. Check tightness of blade nut before each use.
5. Prior to each use, lubricate cutter head shaft, key, keyway and
bushings with good grade of light oil.
6. Prior to each use, check to see that set screws on pulleys are
CAUTION — Loose set screws can cause damage to shaft and
pulley. Improper maintenance could void warranty.
WARNING: The engine on your Edger is not
equipped with a spark arrester and if Edger 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 Briggs
& Stratton or Kawasaki Service Center for spark
arrester muffler options.
