• This machine is equipped with a two-stroke
engine and should therefore be fueled with a
mixture of unleaded gasoline (with a mini-
mum octane rating = 90) and fully synthetic
oil specific for two-speed engines that use
unleaded gasoline in the proportions indi-

the machine.

cause the White Finger Syndrome (Syndrome of
Raynaud). This could reduce the sensitivity of
the hands in distinguishing different tempera-

CAUTION! Control the specifications of
the oil shown on the package; the use of
oil lacking the specifications expressly indicat-
ed in this manual could cause serious damage
to the engine!
• To obtain the best mixture, pour the oil into an
approved container first, followed by the gaso-
line, and shake the container well (every time
you take fuel out of it).
• Be careful not to spill the gasoline.
• The characteristics of the mixture tend to deteri-
orate in time, so you should only prepare as
much mixture as you are going to need.


CAUTION! The following precautions
should be taken to reduce the fire hazard:
• Always ensure there is adequate ventilation.
• Do not smoke or take sources of heat or
sparks near the fuel.
• Refuel with the engine off.
• Open the cap on the tank carefully to elimi-
nate any excess pressure.
• Do not take the cap off the tank with the
engine running.
• After fueling, close the cap tightly.
• Fill the tank in a well-ventilated place.
• Place the machine on a solid flat surface so that
it cannot tip over, with the cap on the tank fac-
ing upward.
