OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
When using
the blade,
bring the engine to full
throttle before entering the material to be cut. The
Blade has maximum
cutting
power at full throttle
and is less likely to bind_ stall, or cause blade thrust,
which can result in serious injury to the operator or
o_ers.
Refer to "Guard A_st
Blade Thrust".
When using the trianmer bead, do not run the en-
gine at a higher speed than necessary.
The cutting
line will cut efficiently when the engine is run at less
• than full throttle.
At lower speeds, there is less en-
gine noise and vibration.
The cutting line wil! last
longer and w_ be less likely to "weld" onto the spoo!.

or trimmer
head
does
not turn
when
the engine
is accelerated,
make sure the
drive shaft housing is properly seated in the engine
shroud. Refer to '_,ssembly Steps-Tube."

en-
gine to return
