Fuel safety

Never start the machine:
1. If you have spilled fuel on it. Wipe off the
spillage and allow remaining fuel to evapo-
rate.
2. If you have spilled fuel on yourself or your
clothes, change your clothes. Wash any
part of your body that has come in contact
with fuel. Use soap and water.
3. If the machine is leaking fuel. Check regu-
larly for leaks from the fuel cap and fuel
lines.
Transport and storage
S Store and transport the machine and fuel
so that there is no risk of any leakage or
fumes coming into contact with sparks or
naked flames, for example, from electri-
cal machinery, electric motors, electrical
relays/switches or boilers.
S When storing and transporting fuel al-
ways use approved containers intended
for this purpose.
S When storing the machine for long peri-
ods the fuel tank must be emptied. Con-
tact your local petrol station to find out
where to dispose of excess fuel.
S Ensure the machine is cleaned and that
a complete service is carried out before
long- -term storage.
S In order to prevent unintentional starting
of the engine, the spark plug cap must
always be removed during long- -term
storage, if the machine is not under
close supervision and when performing
all service measures.
WARNING:
Take care when han-
dling fuel. Bear in mind the risk of
fire, explosion and inhaling fumes.

Fuel

CAUTION! The machine is equipped with a
two- -stroke engine and must always be run
using a mixture of petrol and two-stroke
engine oil. It is important to accurately mea-
sure the amount of oil to be mixed to ensure
that the correct mixture is obtained. When
mixing small amounts of fuel, even small
inaccuracies can drastically affect the ratio
of the mixture.
WARNING:
Fuel and fuel fumes
are highly inflammable and can
cause serious injury when inhaled
or allowed to come in contact with
the skin. For this reason observe
caution when handling fuel and
make sure there is adequate ven-
tilation.

FUEL HANDLING

Petrol
CAUTION! Always use a good quality pet-
rol/oil mixture (at least 90 octane).
Use low- -emission petrol, also known as
alkylate petrol, if it is available.
S The lowest octane recommended is 90.
If you run the engine on a lower octane
than 90, it can result in knocking. This
gives rise to a high engine temperature,
which can result in serious engine damage.
S When working at continuous high revs, a
higher octane rating is recommended.
Two- -stroke oil
S For best results and performance, use
HUSQVARNA two- -stroke oil, which is
specially formulated for our two- -stroke
engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%).
S If HUSQVARNA two- -stroke oil is not avail-
able, you may use another two-stroke oil of
good quality that is intended for air cooled
engines. Contact your dealer when select-
ing an oil. Mixing ratio 1:33 (3%).
S Never use two- -stroke oil intended for
water- -cooled outboard engines,
sometimes referred to as outboard oil.
S Never use oil intended for four- -stroke
engines.
