WARRANTY STATEMENT ..Note the following before starting: Husqvarna AB has a policy of continuous product development and therefore reserves the right to modify the design and appearance of products without prior notice.
Wear sturdy, non- -slip boots. Only use non- -metallic, flexible cutting attachments, i.e. trimmer heads with trimmer line. Only intended for trimmer heads. Use unleaded or quality leaded gasoline and two- -stroke oil mixed at a ratio of 2% (1:50).
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Personal protective equipment IMPORTANT! Whenever you use a clear- ing saw, brushcutter or trimmer you must wear personal protective equipment that is approved by the authorities. Personal protective equipment does not eliminate the risk of accidents, but it can reduce the effects of an injury in the event of an acci- dent.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Use of incorrectly wound trimmer line or an incorrect cutting attachment increases the level of vibration. WARNING: Overexposure to vibration can lead to circulatory damage or nerve damage in people who have impaired circulation. Contact your doctor if you experi- ence symptoms of overexposure to vibration.
S The length of the trimmer line is also im- portant. A longer trimmer line requires greater engine power than a shorter trimmer line of the same diameter.
S Always keep the engine on the right hand side of your body. S Hold the unit firmly with both hands. S Keep trimmer head below waist level and away from all parts of your body. Do not raise engine above your waist.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS S Check that the trimmer head and guard are correctly secured. S When adjusting the carburetor, make sure the lower end is supported and that no one is in the immediate vicinity. S Make sure the cutting head does not rotate when idling.
S Do not allow the trimmer head to con- - stantly come into contact with the ground during normal cutting. Constant contact of this type can cause damage and wear...
Sweeping S The fan effect of the rotating line can be used for quick and easy clearing up. Hold the trimmer line parallel to and above the area to be swept and move the tool to and fro. S When cutting and sweeping you should use full throttle to obtain the best results.

Never use, for example, wire or wire rope, which can break off and become a dangerous projectile. S Check that the trimmer head and trimmer guard are not damaged or cracked. Replace the trimmer head or trimmer guard if they have been exposed to impact or are cracked.
Carburetor Your Husqvarna product has been designed and manufactured to specifications that re- duce harmful emissions. After the engine has used 8- -10 tanks of fuel, the engine will be run- -in.
WARNING: If the idle speed can- not be adjusted so that the cutting attachment stops, contact your ser- vicing dealer. Do not use the ma- chine until it has been correctly ad- justed or repaired. Unit/Maintenance Safety Disconnect the spark plug before perform- ing maintenance, except carburetor adjust- ments.
However, be- fore using the machine you should check that the bevel gear is filled three- -quarters full with grease. Use HUSQVARNA special grease. The grease in the bevel gear does not nor- mally need to be changed except if repairs are carried out.
