The machine is fitted with a two-stroke engine and must
always be run on a mixture of petrol and two-stroke oil. It is
important to measure the quantity of oil accurately, to ensure
the correct mixture ratio. Small discrepancies in the amount of
oil have a great bearing on the proportions of the fuel mixture
when mixing small amounts of fuel.
Always provide good ventilation when
Always use an oil-mixed
quality petrol (at least 90
octane). If your machine is
equipped with a catalytic
converter, (see "technical
data") an unleaded, oil
mixed quality petrol should
always be used. A leaded
petrol will destroy the
• The lowest recommended
octane rating is 90. If you
run the engine on a petrol
with a lower octane rating
than 90 so-called
"knocking" can occur.
This leads to an increased
engine temperature, which
can result in a serious

• For the best results use
Husqvarna two-stroke oil,
which has been specially
produced for brush cutters
and chain saws. Mixing
ratio 1:50 (2%).
• If Husqvarna two-stroke oil is not available you can use a
high quality two-stroke oil intended for air cooled engines.
Contact your dealer when selecting an oil.
Mixing ratio: 1:25 (4%).
• Never use two-stroke oil intended for water cooled outboard
motors, so-called outboard motor oil.
• Never use oil intended of four-stroke engines.
• Always mix petrol and oil in a clean container intended for
• Always start by filling half the quantity of petrol required.
Then add the entire oil quantity. Mix (shake) the fuel
mixture. Fill the remaining quantity of petrol.
• Mix (shake) the fuel mixture carefully before filling in the
machine's fuel tank.
• Do not mix more than max. one month's supply of fuel.
• If the brush cutter is not used for a long period of time, the
fuel tank should be emptied and cleaned.

The following precautions reduce the risk
Do not smoke or place any sources of heat
in the vicinity of the fuel. Never refuel
when the engine is running. Always stop
the engine and let it cool for a few minutes
before refuelling. Open the fuel cap slowly
when fuelling so that any over pressure is
released slowly. Tighten the fuel cap
carefully after refuelling. Always move the
machine from the fuelling place before
