This operator’s manual describes safety and international symbols and pictographs that
appear on this product. Read the operator’s manual for complete safety, assembly, operating,
maintenance and repair information.
SYMBOL
MEANING
• SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL
Indicates danger, warning or caution. May be used in
conjunction with other symbols or pictographs.
• WARNING - READ OPERATOR’S MANUAL
Read the operator’s manual(s) and follow all warnings and
safety instructions. Failure to do so can result in serious
injury to the operator and/or bystanders.
• WEAR EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION
WARNING: Thrown objects and loud noise can cause severe
eye injury and hearing loss. Wear eye protection meeting ANSI
Z87.1 standards and ear protection when operating this unit.
Use a full face shield when needed.
• KEEP BYSTANDERS AWAY
WARNING: Keep all bystanders, especially children and pets,
at least 50 feet (15m) from the operating area.
• THROWN OBJECTS AND ROTATING CUTTER CAN
CAUSE SEVERE INJURY
WARNING: Do not operate without the cutting attachment
shield in place. Keep all from the rotating cutting attachment.
WARNING: Never use blades or flailing devices. This unit is
designed for line trimmer use only. Use of any other
accessories or attachments will increase the risk of injury.
SAFETY RULES
• Do not allow a person to use this unit unless instructions are read and understood. Never
allow children to operate or play with the unit.
• Do not operate this unit when tired, ill or under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication.
• Always wear heavy, long pants, boots, gloves, and a long sleeve shirt. Do not wear loose
clothing, jewelry, short pants, sandals, or go barefoot. Secure hair so it is above
shoulder level.
• Inspect unit before each use. Replace damaged parts. Check for fuel leaks. Make sure all
fasteners are in place and secure. Replace cutting attachment parts that are cracked,
chipped, or damaged in any way. Make sure the cutting attachment is properly installed and
securely fastened. Be sure the cutting attachment shield is properly attached, and in the
position recommended by the manufacturer. Use only flexible, non-metallic line
recommended by the manufacturer. Never use, for example, wire or wire-rope which can
break off and become a dangerous projectile.
• Keep firm footing and balance. Do not over-reach. Keep cutting attachment below waist
level. Keep all parts of your body away from the rotating cutting attachment and hot
surfaces.
• Never start or run the unit inside a closed room or building; breathing exhaust fumes can kill.
• Pour fuel outdoors where there are no sparks and flames. Slowly remove the fuel cap only
after stopping the engine. Do not smoke while fueling. Wipe spilled fuel from the unit. Move
at least 10 ft. (3 m) away from the fueling source and site before starting engine.
• Clear the area to be cut before each use. Remove all objects such as rocks, broken glass,
nails, wire, or string which can be thrown or become entangled in the cutting attachment.
Clear the area of children, bystanders and pets. At a minimum, keep all children, bystanders
and pets outside a 50 ft. (15 m) radius; outside the 50 ft. zone, there is still a risk of injury
to bystanders from being struck with the moving strings in the event of a cutting lines
thrust or other unexpected reaction of the saw.
• The cutting attachment may be spinning during carburetor adjustments. Wear your
protective equipment and observe all safety instructions. When the unit is turned off make
sure the cutting attachment has stopped before the unit is set down.
• The handles and shield must be mounted according to the instructions. The unit is
designed to be used while positioned on the right side.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
HOLDING THE TRIMMER
NOTE: Do not rest the bump head on the ground while the
unit is running.
Some line breakage will occur from:
•
Entanglement with foreign matter
•
Normal line fatigue
•
Attempting to cut thick, stalky weeds
•
Forcing the line into objects such as walls or fence posts.
WARNING: Always wear eye, hearing,
foot and body protection to reduce the
risk of injury when operating this unit
Before operating the unit, stand in the operating position
(Fig. 1). Check for the following:
•
The operator is wearing eye protection and
proper clothing.
•
With a slightly-bent right arm, the operator’s hand is
holding the shaft grip.
•
The operator’s left arm is straight, the left hand holding
the D-handle
•
The unit is at waist level
•
The cutting attachment is parallel to the ground and easily
contacts the grass without the need to bend over.
CAUTION: Do not remove or alter the line
cutting blade assembly. Excessive line length
will overload the engine and could cause
damage to the engine.
TIPS FOR BEST TRIMMING RESULTS
•
•
Keep the cutting attachment parallel to the ground.
Do not force the cutting attachment. Allow the tip of the
line to do the cutting, especially along walls. Cutting with
more than the tip will reduce cutting efficiency and may
overload the engine.
•
Cut grass over 8 in. (200 mm) by working from top to
bottom in small increments to avoid premature line wear or
engine drag.
•
Cut from right to left whenever possible. Cutting to the left
improves the unit’s cutting efficiency. Clippings are
thrown away from the operator.
•
Slowly move the trimmer into and out of the cutting area at
the desired height. Move either in a forward-backward or
side-to-side motion. Cutting shorter lengths produces the
best results.
•
Trim only when grass and weeds are dry.
•
The life of your cutting line is dependent upon:
• Following the trimming techniques
• What vegetation is being cut
• Where vegetation is cut
For example, the line will wear faster when trimming against
foundation wall as opposed to trimming around a tree.
™
Fig. 1
ADJUSTING TRIMMING LINE LENGTH
The bump head cutting attachment allows you to release
trimming line without stopping the engine. To release more line,
lightly tap the cutting attachment on the ground (Fig. 2) while
operating the trimmer at high speed.
NOTE: Always keep the trimming line fully extended. Line
release becomes more difficult when the cutting line
gets shorter.
DECORATIVE TRIMMING
Decorative trimming is accomplished by removing all
vegetation around trees, posts, fences and more.
Rotate the whole unit so that the cutting attachment
is at 30° angle to the ground (Fig. 3)
Fig. 2
Each time the head is bumped, about 1 in. (25.4 mm) of
trimming line releases. A blade in the cutting attachment shield
will cut the line to the proper length if any excess line
is released.
For best results, tap the bump knob on bare ground or hard
soil. If you attempt a line release in tall grass, the engine may
stall. Always keep the trimming line fully extended. Line release
becomes more difficult when the cutting line
gets shorter.

SERVICE/ADJUSTMENTS
LINE REPLACEMENT
SAFETY RULES
1. Shut down the trimmer to make certain the head cannot turn while working with
the head.
2. Check mounting of cutting head on trimmer and tighten if it is loose
3. Inspect head for wear, chips or cracks. Replace parts or entire head if needed.
4. Always use line that is the correct diameter and type for this unit. Do not use
metal reinforced or metal line.
5. Make sure the two retaining pawls spread out to the periphery of the
cover windows.
6. Check the head for deflection or abnormal noise by rotating the head by hand.
Deflection or abnormal noise may cause vibrations, which will cause the cutting
line to weld together. It is also potentially dangerous.
REFILLING TRIMMING LINE
1. For replacement line, use a diameter of .095 in.
(2.4 mm). The spool is capable for a line up to 20
ft. (6 m) on the 4 in. head. Avoid using a larger line
as it may cut down the trimming performance.
2. Pinch the slotted area on the both sides of the
spool housing to unhook the bottom cap.
3. Take out the spool and pull off the old line. Put one
end of new line through the spool holes and pull it
until the length is equal between each part of
the line.
4. Wind up the line in the correct direction as
indicated on the spool.
5. Hook each end of the line in the slot on the edge of
the spool, and then put the ends through the
eyelets on the housing. Make sure that the spring
and the washers are in place.
6. While holding the spool against the housing, pull
the line ends to release them from the slot.
7. Line up the slot on the bottom cap with the hook on
the housing, press the cap against the housing until
it clicks.
