Starting and adjusting your brush cutter

obstructions. Start the engine, with the engine running, attach the brushcutter to your back.

Before Starting
Check that your power tool is properly assembled and in good condition

To reduce the risk of accidents, never operate your power tool if it is damaged, improperly
adjusted or not completely or securely assembled.

Starting the Engine
Start the engine at least 3 m (10 ft) from the fueling spot, outdoors only.
Place the unit on firm ground in an open area. Make sure you have good balance and secure footing. Hold the unit securely. The cutting tool must be clear of the ground and all other obstructions.

STARTING COLD ENGINE – Step by Step
1. Move the stop switch to “START” position.(If there is one)
2. Put the fuel cock on the “ON” station.(let it fill fuel to the caburetor)
3. Turn the trottle level to slow – acceleration speed.
4. Cold Starts: Pull choke to fully closed position (upwards).
*When sufficient fuel is retained and the engine is warm,
set the choke lever at the fully opened position to start. (downward)
5. Pull starter handle until engine you hear combustible sounds.
6. Push choke lever down( excessive cranking with choke lever will cause flooding engine making it difficult to start.)

STARTING WARM ENGINE
If fuel tank was not run dry, pull starter one to three times and engine should start.
DO NOT USE CHOKE when starting warm engine.
If fuel tank was run dry, after refilling repeat steps 3 thru 7 in STARTING COLD
ENGINE.

• Then pull the recoil starter briskly. I After starting the engine, allow it about 2 – 3 minutes to warm up before subjecting it to any load.

CAUTION: Blade may rotate and flexible & shaft may vibrate as engine starts. Do not let the cutting tool touch any object when engine starts.

 

 

Adjusting the Carburetor
When the idle speed is too high or too low, adjust it with the idle speed adjusting screw (1}.
ln case that the cutting tool keeps turning at idling speed, turn the idle adjusting screw
counterclockwise.

 

Correct idle speed: The cutting tool must not rotate when the engine is idling with the throttle
trigger in idle position.
