Adjusting the drive belt

• The drive belt is fully
enclosed and well protected
from dust, dirt and
mechanical effects during
the cutting process.
• To tension the drive belt,
slightly loosen the nuts (A),
which secure the cutting
head and belt guard.
• Turn the tensioning screw
so that the nut (B) is located
directly under the arrow on
the cover. Shake the head
to ensure the spring can
tension the belt. The belt
now automatically has the
right tension.
• Tighten the nuts that hold
the cutting head.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION! A new drive belt should be
tensioned after using one or two tanks of fuel.

Changing the drive belt

• Loosen the two nuts (A).
• Turn the tensioning screws
(B) until the tension has
been released.
• Remove the two nuts (A).
• Remove the front belt cover
(C).
• Remove the belt from the
pulley.
• Dismantle the cutting head.
• Remove the two nuts (D),
and the screws that are
straight under these (E) and
lift off the cutting arm.
• Replace the drive belt.
• To assemble reverse the
procedure for dismantling.
• Check the cutting disc's
disc guard for signs of
cracking or other damage.
Replace it if damaged.
