Tips for
Long
Storage
Drain all fuel from
the fuel tank
and carburetor.
Remove
spark
plug,
pour a teaspoon
of oil through
the plug hole.
Rotate
the crankshaft

times by pulling
the starter
handle
slowly.
Replace
the spark
plug and proceed
with

BRUSH
CUTTER
OPERATION
CAUTION:
Shoulder
harness
must
be worn, and both
hands
kept
on
the handlebar
grips at all times during
brush
cutter
operation.
Positive
control
is .man-
datory
for safe operation.
DO NOT EDGE WITH
METAL
BLADE!
The brush
blade
was exclusively
designed
for its shear cutting
action.
It has a much
faster
cutting
ability
than
conventional,
bar type,
rotary
blades.
The brush cutter
blade will effectively
cut
all growth,
up
to
2"
in diameter,
flush
to the
ground,
leaving
no unsightly
or dangerous
stumpage.
For clearing
large
areas the unit
should
be used similar
to the
mowing
action,
or a swing
scythe
applying
large semi-circular
swings of 6-7 feet advancing
forward
approximately
five inches
with
each swing.
Cutting
heavier
growth
with
the brush
blade
will
require
slower
action.
After
you
are
acquainted
with
this
type
cutting
action..,
you
will
want
to
control
the
swinging
with
the hip rather
than
to put the full workload
on
the arms
and hands.
Avoid
"WRAPPING"
when cutting
some
types
of
growth
such as wire
grass, Johnsoo
grass, dead,
dry,
long
stem
weeds,
grass or vines;
there
is a possibility
of this
material
"WRAPPING"
around
the
blade
shaft.
This
action
can
stall
the blade
and cause the clutch
to slip. To avoid
this
problem,
the unit
should
be operated
at full
throttle,
swinging
the
machine
into
the
materials
to
be cut
and avoiding
the
material
just cut,
as you make the return
swing.
I
IMPORTANT:
!
Clean
and inspect
cutter
shaft
periodically,
re-
I
move debris,
etc. to insure
optimum
operation.
CAUTION
Stop
engine
before
removing
grass or weed wrappings.
Sharpening
the brush
blade...the
brush
blade should
be
kept
sharp
at all times. When
cutting
for any length
of time
keep a file
handy;
a few strokes
now and then will
keep the
blade
sharp
and cutting
precisely.
CAUTION:
Always
shut
the engine
down
to sharpen
the blade.
When sharpening
the
blade
in the shop
be sure it is straight.
Lay the blade
on a
flat
surface
to determine
if it is straight.
Always
replace
a
bent
blade,
do not attempt
to straighten
and re-use.
FILE
OR
GRIND
'_':
BLADE
AS
SHOWN.
Use the
4-tooth
blade
only
for
mowing,
if 4-tooth
blade
is
worn
out,
grind the base of blade into round
curve as shown
above.
Emergency
measure during operation

pull
the detaching
belt upward
strongly
and the machine
will
be detached
from
the body.
