SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS General working instructions WARNING! This section describes basic safety directions for using a power cutter.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS • Move the blade slowly forwards and backwards to achieve a small contact area between the blade and the material to be cut. This reduces the temperature of the blade and ensures effective cutting. • Feed down the machine in line with the blade. Pressure from the side can damage the blade and is very dangerous.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Pinching/rotation If the cut is pressed together this can lead to jamming. The machine can be pulled down suddenly with a very powerful jerk. How to avoid pinching Support the work piece in such a way that the cut remains open during the cutting operation and when the cut is ﬁnished.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Ensure the blade it not cracked or damaged in any other way. Test the abrasive disc by hanging it on your ﬁnger and tapping it lightly with a screwdriver or the like. If the disc does not produce a resonant, ringing sound it is damaged. Diamond blades Diamond blades consist of a steel body provided with segments that contain industrial diamonds.
Do not use different dimensions of ﬂange washers. Fitting the cutting blade Husqvarna cutting blades are manufactured and approved for freehand cutting. The paper labels on each side of the blade are there to distribute the pressure from the ﬂange washer and prevent the blade from slipping.
This gives rise to a high engine temperature, which can result in serious engine damage. 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. •...

In order to obtain a good ﬁltering effect, the ﬁlter must be replaced regularly or cleaned and oiled. A special HUSQVARNA oil has been produced for this purpose. Remove the foam plastic ﬁlter. Wash the ﬁlter well in tepid soapy water.
Starter WARNING! When the recoil spring is wound up in the starter housing it is under tension and can, if handled carelessly, pop out and cause personal injury. Always be careful when changing the recoil spring or the starter cord. Always wear protective goggles.
Spark plug The spark plug condition is inﬂuenced by: • Incorrect carburettor adjustment. • Wrong fuel mixture (too much oil). • A dirty air ﬁlter. These factors cause deposits on the spark plug electrodes, which may result in operating problems and starting difﬁculties.
MAINTENANCE General maintenance instructions Below you will ﬁnd some general maintenance instructions. If you have more questions, contact your service agent.
