GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Important IMPORTANT! The machine is only designed for edging lawns. 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.
GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS CLOTHING Wear clothes made of a strong fabric and avoid loose clothing that can catch on twigs and branches. Always wear heavy, long pants. Do not wear jewellery, shorts sandals or go barefoot. Secure hair so it is above shoulder level.
GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS be checked. See instructions under the heading Maintenance. Stop switch Use the stop switch to switch off the engine. Start the engine and make sure the engine stops when you move the stop switch to the stop setting. Cutting attachment guard This guard is intended to prevent loose objects from being thrown towards the operator.
GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Mufﬂer The mufﬂer is designed to keep noise levels to a minimum and to direct exhaust fumes away from the user. A mufﬂer ﬁtted with a catalytic converter is also designed to reduce harmful exhaust gases. In countries that have a warm and dry climate there is a signiﬁcant risk of ﬁre.
The lining should offer a resistance of at least 1.5 Nm. The nut should be replaced after it has been put on approx. 10 times. Locking screw (326ES) The locking screw secures the cutting attachment on the output shaft.
• Firmly tighten the screw. 12 – English ASSEMBLY Assembling the angle gear (326ES) • Assemble the angle gear back on the suppporting tube. Turn the blade so that the drive shaft engages in the angle gear. •...
Remove the locking pin. CAUTION! Do not forget to remove the locking pin before using the machine. Assembling the blade (326ES) Fit the blade as follows: Fit the drive disc (A) on the outgoing shaft. Make sure that the edge that ﬁts in the hole of the blade is facing outward.
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).
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.
Check before starting • Check that the support ﬂange is not cracked due to fatigue or due to being tightened too much. Discard the support ﬂange if it is cracked. • Ensure the locking nut has not lost its captive force. The nut lock should have a locking force of at least 1.5 Nm.
STARTING AND STOPPING Repeat pulling the cord until the engine starts. When the engine starts. return choke control to run position and apply full throttle; the throttle will automatically disengage from the start setting. CAUTION! Do not pull the starter cord all the way out and do not let go of the starter handle when the cord is fully extended.
General working instructions IMPORTANT INFORMATION This section describes the basic safety rules for working with edgers. If you encounter a situation where you are uncertain how to proceed you should ask an expert. Contact your dealer or your service workshop. Avoid all usage which you consider to be beyond your capability.
• To ensure that people, animals, etc., do not come into contact with the cutting attachment or loose objects that are thrown out by the cutting attachment. • CAUTION! Do not use the machine unless you are able to call for help in the event of an accident. Do not use the machine in bad weather, such as dense fog, heavy rain, strong wind, intense cold, etc.
Safety instructions after completing work • Make sure the cutting attachment has stopped before cleaning, carrying out repairs or an inspection. Disconnect the HT lead from the spark plug. • Always wear heavy-duty gloves when repairing the cutting attachment. This is extremely sharp and can easily cause cuts.
Carburetor 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...
Low speed jet L Try to ﬁnd the highest idling speed, turning the low speed needle L clockwise respectively counter-clockwise. When the highest speed has been found, turn the low speed needle L 1/4 turn counter-clockwise. CAUTION! If the cutting attachment rotates when the engine is idling the idle adjustment screw T should be turned anti-clockwise until the cutting attachment stops.
Mufﬂer 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.
24 – English MAINTENANCE Oiling the air ﬁlter Always use HUSQVARNA ﬁlter oil, art. no. 531 00 92-48. The ﬁlter oil contains a solvent to make it spread evenly through the ﬁlter. You should therefore avoid skin contact. Put the ﬁlter in a plastic bag and pour the ﬁlter oil over it.
