SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Personal protective equipment IMPORTANT! Whenever you use the hedge trimmer you must use personal protective equipment that is approved by the authorities. Personal protective equipment does not eliminate the risk of injury, but it can reduce the degree of injury in the event of an accident.

The machine s vibration damping system reduces the transfer of vibration between the engine unit/cutting equipment and the machine s handle unit.

Fuel CAUTION! The machine is equipped with a two-stroke engine and must always been run using a mixture of petrol and two- stroke engine oil. It is important to accurately measure the amount of oil to be mixed to ensure that the correct mixture is obtained.
STARTING AND STOPPING Check before starting • Inspect the working area. Remove any objects that could be thrown out. • Check the cutting attachment. Never use blades that are dull, cracked or damaged. • Check that the machine is in perfect working order. Check that all nuts and screws are tight.
STARTING AND STOPPING Air purge: Press the air purge diaphragm repeatedly until fuel begins to ﬁll the diaphragm. The diaphragm need not be completely ﬁlled. Hold the body of the machine on the ground using your left hand (CAUTION! Not with your foot!). Grip the starter handle, slowly pull out the cord with your right hand until you feel some resistance (the starter pawls grip), now quickly and powerfully pull the cord.
Carburettor Your Husqvarna product has been designed and manufactured to speciﬁcations that reduce harmful emissions. After the engine has used 8-10 tanks of fuel the engine will be run-in. To ensure that it continues to run at peak performance and to minimise harmful exhaust emissions after the running-in period, ask your dealer/service workshop (who will have a rev counter at their disposal) to adjust your carburettor.
The blades must also remain stationary when the choke control is in the start throttle position. IMPORTANT! If the idle speed cannot be adjusted so that the cutting attachment stops, contact your dealer/service workshop. Do not use the machine until it has been correctly adjusted or repaired.
Cooling system To keep the working temperature as low as possible the machine is equipped with a cooling system. The cooling system consists of: 1 Air intake on the starter. 2 Fins on the ﬂywheel. 3 Cooling ﬁns on the cylinder. 4 Cylinder cover (directs cold air over the cylinder).
Gear housing There are three grease nipples on the gear housing. Use a grease gun to top up with grease. This should be carried out approximately every 20 working hours. Use Husqvarna special grease, part no. 503 98 96-01. CAUTION! The gear housing must not be ﬁlled completely with grease.
