Air filter
The air filter must be regularly cleaned to remove dust
and dirt in order to avoid:
Carburettor malfunctions
Starting problems
Loss of engine power
Unnecessary wear to engine parts
Excessive fuel consumption.
Clean the filter every 25 hours, or more regularly if
conditions are exceptionally dusty.
Cleaning the air filter
Remove the air filter cover and take out the filter. Wash it
clean in warm, soapy water. Ensure that the filter is dry
before refitting it.
An air filter that has been in use for a long time cannot be
cleaned completely. The filter must therefore be replaced
with a new one at regular intervals. A damaged air filter
must always be replaced.
If the machine is used in dusty conditions the air filter
should be soaked in oil. See instructions under the
heading Oiling the air filter.

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.
Knead the plastic bag to distribute the oil. Squeeze the
excess oil out of the filter inside the plastic bag and pour
off the excess before fitting the filter to the machine. Never
use common engine oil. This would drain through the filter
quite quickly and collect in the bottom.

Angle gear

The angle gear is filled with a sufficient quantity of grease
at the factory. However, before using the machine you
should check that the angle gear is filled to 3/4 with
grease. Use HUSQVARNA special grease.
The grease in the bevel gear does not normally need to
be changed except if repairs are carried out.
