INSTALLING THE PROPANE CANISTER

USE THE CORRECT PROPANE CANISTER
Always use Propane canisters or "Bottles" that are the
correct size. The 17 ounce or 16.4 ounce/465 g can -
isters that are approximately 3-7/8 inches (9.5 cm) in
diameter are the correct canisters (Fig. 8). Do not use
the smaller diameter canisters as they will not latch
securely to the unit and vibration may cause damage to
the trimmer and potentially result in a dangerous leak.
ATTACHING THE PROPANE CANISTER
1. Make sure the engine is o .
2. If the propane canister to be installed has a protec -
tive plastic cap over the threaded end, remove it.
Make sure the canister clamp is in the un-latched
position.
3. Insert the threaded end of the propane canister into
the clamp as far as it will go (Fig. 9A). Insert the propane con-
nector onto the threaded end of the canister and screw it
onto threads clockwise (Fig. 9B). Screw it until snug.
Do not over tighten. It may be normal to hear or smell
a slight momentary leak of propane as the connector
is being screwed in. Make sure that the connector is
installed tight enough that any leakage stops. Hand
tight is suf cient. Slide canister back so all of fuel line
components are behind the guard and latch the canister
clamp.
