    GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Important IMPORTANT! The machine is only designed for trimming grass, grass clearing and/or forestry clearing. The only accessories you can operate with this engine unit are the cutting attachments we recommend in the chapter on Technical data. Never use the machine if you are tired, if you have drunk alcohol, or if you are taking medication that could affect your vision, your judgement or your co-ordination.
  • Page 7: Machine's Safety Equipment

    GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS GLOVES Gloves should be worn when necessary, e.g., when fitting cutting attachments. BOOTS Wear boots with steel toe-caps and non-slip sole. CLOTHING Wear clothes made of a strong fabric and avoid loose clothing that can catch on twigs and branches. Always wear heavy, long pants.
  • Page 8 The machine′s vibration damping system reduces the transfer of vibration between the engine unit/cutting equipment and the machine′s handle unit. Regularly check the vibration damping units for cracks or deformation. 535RX, 535RXT Check that the vibration damping element is undamaged and securely attached.
  • Page 9 GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WARNING! Overexposure to vibration can lead to circulatory damage or nerve damage in people who have impaired circulation. Contact your doctor if you experience symptoms of overexposure to vibration. Such symptoms include numbness, loss of feeling, tingling, pricking, pain, loss of strength, changes in skin colour or condition.
  • Page 10: Cutting Equipment

    GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WARNING! Mufflers fitted with catalytic converters get very hot during use and remain so for some time after stopping. This also applies at idle speed. Contact can result in burns to the skin. Remember the risk of fire! WARNING! The inside of the muffler contain chemicals that may be carcinogenic.
  • Page 11: Sharpening The Saw Blade

    A correctly sharpened blade is essential for working efficiently and to avoid unnecessary wear to the blade and brush cutter. • Make sure that the blade is well supported when you file it. Use a 5.5 mm round file with a file holder.
  • Page 12: Trimmer Head

    GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS round file. The top edges must be filed down by the same amount for all the teeth. • Adjust the blade setting. This should be 1 mm. Trimmer head IMPORTANT! Always ensure the trimmer cord is wound tightly and evenly around the drum, otherwise the machine will generate harmful vibration.
  • Page 13: Assembly

    Assembling the handlebar and throttle • Remove the screw at the rear of the throttle handle. • Slide the throttle handle onto the right side of the handlebar, (see diagram). • Align the screw hole in the throttle handle with the hole in the handlebar.
  • Page 14: Fitting A Blade Guard, Grass Blade And Grass Cutter

  • Page 15: Fitting Other Guards And Cutting Attachments

    • Insert the locking pin (C) in the hole to lock the shaft. • Place the blade (D) and support flange (F) on the output shaft. • Fit the nut (G). The nut must be tightened to a torque of 35-50 Nm (3.5-5 kpm). Use the socket spanner in the tool kit.
  • Page 16: Adjusting The Harness And Brush Cutter

    Adjusting the harness and brush cutter WARNING! When using a brush cutter it must always be hooked securely to the harness. Otherwise you will be unable to control the brush cutter safely and this can result in injury to yourself or others.
  • Page 17 Tighten the chest strap under your left arm so that it fits closely around your body. Adjust the shoulder strap to distribute the load evenly across your shoulders.

  • Page 18: Fuel Handling

    When working at continuous high revs a higher octane rating is recommended. Two-stroke oil • For best results and performance use HUSQVARNA two-stroke engine oil, which is specially formulated for our air-cooled two stroke-engines. • Never use two-stroke oil intended for water-cooled engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil (rated TCW).
  • Page 19: Fueling

    Mixing • Always mix the gasoline and oil in a clean container intended for fuel. • Always start by filling half the amount of the gasoline to be used. Then add the entire amount of oil. Mix (shake) the fuel mixture. Add the remaining amount of gasoline.
  • Page 20: Starting And Stopping

    Check before starting • Check the blade to ensure that no cracks have formed at the bottom of the teeth or by the centre hole. The most common reason why cracks are formed is that sharp corners have been formed at the bottom of the teeth while sharpening or that the blade has been used with dull teeth.
  • Page 21 Primer bulb: Press the air purge repeatedly until fuel begins to fill the bulb. The bulb need not be completely filled. WARNING! When the engine is started with the choke in either the choke or start throttle positions the cutting attachment will start to rotate immediately.

  • Page 23 WARNING! Neither the operator of the machine nor anyone else may attempt to remove the cut material while the engine is running or the cutting equipment is rotating, as this can result in serious injury. Stop the engine and cutting equipment before you remove material that has wound around the blade shaft as otherwise there is a risk of injury.
