cutting head rotate.
From time to time ensure all screws are tight.
Replace damaged, worn, cracked or warped
blades. Always make sure nylon string head or
blade have been assembled correctly (see sec-
tions NYLON STRING HEAD and BLADE
ASSEMBLY) and blade fastener is tightened.

This may prevent the engine from reaching its
maximum speed and cause high fuel con-
sumption and/or difficult starting.

switched off, the rotating cutting attachment,
blade or string head, will continue to rotate for
a few seconds due to their inertia. Continue to
hold the machine firmly off the ground until it
stops completely. Keep your hands away whilst
it is moving.
N.B. In an emergency, the cutting
attachment can be stopped quickly by
touching it parallel to the ground after
moving the switch to the «STOP» position.
From time to time (at least every 50 hours)
remove and clean the spark plug and check
the electrode gap (0,5/0,6 mm.). Replace spark
plug about every 100 working hours or whenever
it is extremely encrusted. Heavily encrusted
electrodes can result from wrong fuel mixture
(too much oil in the petrol) or a poor quality of
oil in the fuel mix. Check and correct.
To change fuel filter remove the tank cap and
pull out the filter with a piece of bent wire or
long forceps. Contact your Service Station for
general servicing and cleaning of internal parts
at least once a year.This will reduce the possi-
bility of unexpected problems and will ensure
maximum product life and efficiency.
REGULARLY: it is important, in order to avoid
engine overheating, to remove dust and dirt
from slots, gaps and from in between cylinder
fins using a wooden scraper.
LONG STORAGE: empty fuel tank and run
engine until dry.
Store trimmer in a dry place.
