S To reduce the risk of hearing loss
associated with sound level(s), hearing

contacting rotating parts, stop the engine be-
fore installing or removing attachments. Do
not operate without guard(s) in place.

when people might be disturbed. Comply with
times listed in local ordinances. Usual recom-
mendations are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday though Saturday.

BEFORE STARTING ENGINE
WARNING:
information in the safety rules before you
begin. If you do not understand the safety
rules, do not attempt to fuel your unit. Contact
an authorized service dealer.
FUELING ENGINE
WARNING:
when refueling.
This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded petrol. Before operation, petrol
must be mixed with a good quality 2-cycle
air-cooled engine oil.
Husqvarna® brand oil mixed at a ratio of 40:1
(2.5%). A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 5
liters of unleaded petrol with 0,125 liter of oil.
When mixing fuel, follow the instructions
printed on the container. Always read and
follow the safety rules before fueling your unit.
IMPORTANT
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or
methanol) can attract moisture which leads to
separation and formation of acids during stor-
age. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system
of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine
problems, empty the fuel system before stor-
age for 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank,
start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines
and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next
season. Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
