Your Husqvarna product has been designed and
manufactured to specifications that reduce harmful
emissions. After the engine has used 8-10 tanks of fuel the
engine will be run-in. To ensure that it continues to run at peak
performance and to minimise harmful exhaust emissions
after the running-in period, ask your dealer/service workshop
(who will have a rev counter at their disposal) to adjust your
WARNING! The complete clutch cover and
gear housing must be fitted before the
machine is started, otherwise the clutch may
come loose and cause personal injury.
The carburetor governs the engine's speed via the throttle
control. Air and fuel are mixed in the carburetor. The air/
fuel mixture is adjustable. Correct adjustment is essential
to get the best performance from the machine.
The setting of the carburetor means that the engine is
adapted to local conditions, for example, the climate,
altitude, fuel and the type of 2-stroke oil.
Adjusting the idle speed
The T-screw regulates the throttle setting at idle speed. If the
T-screw is turned clockwise this gives a higher idle speed;
turning it anti-clockwise gives a lower idle speed.
Before any adjustments are made, make sure that the air filter
is clean and the air filter cover is fitted.
Adjust the idle speed with the idle adjustment screw T, if
adjustment is necessary. First turn the idle adjustment screw
T clockwise until the blades start to move. Then turn the idle
adjustment screw T anticlockwise until the blades stop. The
idle speed is correctly adjusted when the engine runs
smoothly in every position. There should also be a clear
margin to the speed at which the blades start to move. The
blades must also remain stationary when the choke control is
in the start throttle position.
WARNING! If the idle speed cannot be
adjusted so that the cutting attachment
stops, contact your dealer/service
workshop. Do not use the machine until it
has been correctly adjusted or repaired.


CAUTION! Some mufflers are fitted with a catalytic
converter. See chapter on Technical data to see whether your
machine is fitted with a catalytic converter.
The muffler is designed to reduce the noise level and to direct
the exhaust gases away from the operator. The exhaust
gases are hot and can contain sparks, which may cause fire
if directed against dry and combustible material.
Some mufflers are equipped with a special spark arrestor
screen. If your machine has this type of muffler, you should
clean the screen at least once a week. This is best done with
a wire brush.
On mufflers without a catalytic converter the screen should be
cleaned weekly, or replaced if necessary. On mufflers fitted
with a catalytic converter the screen should be checked, and
if necessary cleaned, monthly. If the screen is damaged it
should be replaced. If the screen is frequently blocked, this
can be a sign that the performance of the catalytic converter
is impaired. Contact your dealer to inspect the muffler. A
blocked screen will cause the machine to overheat and result
in damage to the cylinder and piston. See also instructions
under the heading Maintenance.
CAUTION! Never use a machine with a defective muffler.
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
