periodically
to properly
maintain
your unit.

section
of this manual.
* At least once a year, replace the spark
plug, clean or replace
air filter element

A new spark
plug and clean/new

assure proper air-fuel
mixture and help
your engine run better and last longer.

IMPORTANT:
Do not oil or grease
plastic
wheel
bearings.
Viscous
lubricants
will
attract dust and dirt that will shorten the life of
the self-lubricating
bearings.
If you feel they
must be lubricated,
use only a dry, powdered
1 1 graphite
type lubricant
sparingly.
