Proper clothing and safety gear must be worn when operating a trimmer. Physical Condition Hearing Protection Your judgment and physical dexterity may not be good: • if you are tired or sick, • if you are taking medication, • if you have taken alcohol or drugs. Operate unit only if you are physically and mentally well. ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection whenever unit is used. Eye Protection Wear eye protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 or CE requirements whenever you operate the trimmer. Hand Protection Wear no-slip, heavy duty work gloves to improve your grip on the Trimmer/Brush Cutter handles. Gloves also reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your hands. Proper Clothing Wear snug fitting, durable clothing; • Pants should have long legs, shirts with long sleeves. • DO NOT WEAR SHORTS, • DO NOT WEAR TIES, SCARVES, JEWELRY. Wear sturdy work shoes with non-skid soles; • DO NOT WEAR OPEN TOED SHOES, • DO NOT OPERATE UNIT BAREFOOTED. EXTENDED OPERATION/EXTREME CONDITIONS Vibration and Cold It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects the fingers of certain individuals may be brought about by exposure to vibration and cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling and burning sensations followed by loss of color and numbness in the fingers. The following precautions are strongly recommended because the minimum exposure which might trigger the ailment is unknown. • Keep your body warm, especially the head, neck, feet, ankles, hands and wrists. • Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous arm exercises during frequent work breaks and also by not smoking. • Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill each day with jobs where operating the trimmer or other hand-held power equipment is not required. • If you experience discomfort, redness and swelling of the fingers followed by whitening and loss of feeling, consult your physician before further exposing yourself to cold and vibration. 5 6 Repetitive Stress Injuries It is believed that overusing the muscles and tendons of the fingers, hands, arms, and shoulders may cause soreness, swelling, numbness, weakness, and extreme pain in those areas. Certain repetitive hand activities may put you at a high risk for developing a Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). An extreme RSI condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), which could occur when your wrist swells and squeezes a vital nerve that runs through the area. Some believe that prolonged exposure to vibration may contribute to CTS. CTS can cause severe pain for months or even years. To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following: • Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended or twisted position. Instead try to maintain a straight wrist position. Also, when grasping, use your whole hand, not just the thumb and index finger. • Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest your hands. • Reduce the speed and force with which you do the repetitive movement. • Do exercises to strengthen the hand and arm muscles. • Immediately stop using all power equipment and consult a doctor if you feel tingling, numbness, or pain, in the fingers, hands, wrists, or arms. The sooner RSI/CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent nerve and muscle damage can be prevented. EQUIPMENT WARNING DANGER Use only ECHO-approved attachments. Serious injury may result from the use of a non-approved attachment combination. ECHO, INC. will not be responsible for the failure of cutting devices, attachments, or accessories which have not been tested and approved by ECHO. Read and comply with all safety instructions listed in this manual and safety manual. • Check unit for loose/missing nuts, bolts and screws. Tighten and/or replace as needed. • Inspect fuel lines, tank, and area around carburetor for fuel leaks. DO NOT operate unit if leaks are found. • Inspect shield for damage, and ensure that the cut-off knife is securely in place. Replace if either is damaged or missing. • Check that the cutting attachment is firmly attached and in safe operating condition. • Check that front loop handle and shoulder strap/ or shoulder/ waist harness are adjusted for safe, comfortable operation. See Assembly Section for proper adjustment. • Keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris. Avoid contact during and immediately after operation.

The Shoulder/Waist Harness suspends the trimmer from the operator's shoulder, and reduces operator fatigue during nylon line trimming or cutting with a blade. Operator safety is also enhanced by restricting trimmer movement and preventing blade or line contact with the operator's hands and feet during operation. NOTE In case of Emergency, the trimmer/brushcutter can be released from the the harness by pulling up on the quick-release collar. 17 18 FUEL Fuel Requirements Gasoline - Use 89 Octane [(R + M)/2] (mid grade or higher) gasoline known to be good quality. Gasoline may contain up to 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether). Gasohol containing methyl (wood) alcohol is NOT approved. Two Stroke Oil - A two-stroke engine oil meeting ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. FC Standards, must be used. Echo brand Premium 50:1 oil meets these standards. Engine problems due to inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-L-EGD and J.A.S.O. FC certified oil, such as Echo Premium 50:1 Two-stroke Oil, will void the two-stroke engine warranty. (Emission related parts only are covered for two years, regardless of two-stroke oil used, per the statement listed in the Emission Defect Warranty Explanation.) IMPORTANT Echo Premium 2-Stroke Oil may be mixed at 50:1 ratio for application in all Echo engines sold in the past regardless of ratio specified in those manuals. Mixing Instructions 1. Fill an approved fuel container with half of the required amount of gasoline. 2. Add the proper amount of 2-stroke oil to gasoline. 3. Close container and shake to mix oil with gasoline. 4. Add remaining gasoline and remix. 5. Install fuel container cap and wipe any spilled fuel from container and surrounding area. Handling Fuel WARNING DANGER Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling, otherwise serious personal injury may result. • Use an approved fuel container. • DO NOT smoke near fuel. • DO NOT allow flames or sparks near fuel. • Fuel tanks/cans may be under pressure. Always loosen fuel caps slowly allowing pressure to equalize. • NEVER refuel a unit when the engine is HOT! • NEVER refuel a unit with the engine running. • DO NOT fill fuel tanks indoors. ALWAYS fill fuel tanks outdoors over bare ground. • Securely tighten fuel cap after refueling. • Inspect for fuel leakage. If fuel leakage is found, do not start or operate unit until leakage is repaired. IMPORTANT Spilled fuel is a leading cause of hydrocarbon emissions. Some states may require the use of automatic fuel shut-off containers to reduce fuel spillage. Contact your ECHO dealer for ordering information. After Refueling • Wipe any spilled fuel from the unit. • Move at least 3 m (10 ft.) from refueling location before starting. After Use • DO NOT store a unit with fuel in its tank. Leaks can occur. Return unused fuel to an approved fuel storage container. Storage Fuel storage laws vary by locality. Contact your local government for the laws affecting your area. As a precaution, store fuel in an approved, air tight container. Store in a well ventilated, unoccupied building, away from sparks and flames. Do not store fuel longer than 30 days. IMPORTANT Stored fuel ages. Do not mix more fuel than you expect to use in thirty (30) days, ninety (90) days when a fuel stabilizer is added. IMPORTANT Stored two-stroke fuel may separate. ALWAYS shake fuel container thoroughly before each use. GRASS TRIMMER/BRUSH CUTTER OPERATOR'S MANUAL OPERATION STARTING COLD ENGINE WARNING DANGER The cutting attachment should not rotate at idle.

Tools required: 25-50 mm (1 or 2 in.) medium bristle paint brush. Parts required: 90030 REPOWERTM AIR & FUEL FILTER KIT. 1. Close choke (Cold Start Position). This prevents dirt from entering the carburetor throat when the air filter is removed. Brush accumulated dirt from the air cleaner area. 2. Remove the air cleaner cover. Clean and inspect the element for damage. If element is fuel soaked or very dirty, replace. 3. If element can be cleaned and reused, be certain it: • still fits the cavity in the air cleaner cover. • is installed with the original side out. NOTE Carburetor adjustment may be needed after air filter cleaning/ replacement. FUEL FILTER Level 1. Tools required: Fuel line hook. 200-250 mm (8 - 10 in.) length of wire with one end bent into a hook. Clean rag, funnel, and an approved fuel container. Parts required: 90030 REPOWERTM AIR & FUEL FILTER KIT. WARNING DANGER Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling. 1. Use a clean rag to remove loose dirt from around fuel cap and empty fuel tank. 2. Use the “fuel line hook” to pull the fuel line and filter from the tank. 3. Remove the filter from the line and install the new filter. GRASS TRIMMER/BRUSH CUTTER OPERATOR'S MANUAL SPARK PLUG Level 2. Tools Required: Scrench (combination socket wrench & screw driver) Feeler gauge, preferably a wire gauge. Brush. Parts Required: Spark Plug, NGK BPM-7A 1. Remove spark plug and check for wear or fouling. 2. Clean the plug or replace with a new one. DO NOT sand blast to clean. Remaining sand will damage engine. 3. Adjust spark plug gap by bending outer electrode. 4. Install spark plug and tighten to 145-155 kg/cm (125-135 in. lb.). 0.65 mm (0.026 in.) COOLING SYSTEMS CLEANING Level 2. Tools required: Pointed Wood Stick, 25-50 mm (1 -2 in.) medium bristle paint brush. Parts Required: No parts are required if care is used during cleaning. IMPORTANT To maintain proper engine operating temperatures, cooling air must pass freely through the cylinder fin area. This flow of air carries combustion heat away from the engine. Overheating and engine seizure can occur when: • Air intakes are blocked, preventing cooling air from reaching the cylinder. • Dust and grass build-up on the outside of the cylinder. This build up insulates the engine and prevents the heat from leaving. Removal of cooling passage blockages or cleaning of cooling fins is considered “Normal Maintenance.” Any failure attributed to lack of maintenance is not warranted. 1. Disconnect spark plug lead from spark plug. 2. Remove three (3) screws from muffler cover, and remove cover. 3. Use the wooden stick or brush to remove dirt from the cylinder fins and muffler area. 23 24 4. Remove grass and leaves from the grid between the recoil starter and fuel tank. 5. Position cover over muffler, and secure with three (3) screws. 6. Connect spark plug lead to spark plug. EXHAUST SYSTEM Spark Arrestor Screen Level 2.

Remove three (3) screws from muffler cover (A) and remove. 2. Remove screen holder (B), gasket (C) and screen (D) from muffler body. 3. Clean carbon deposits from muffler components. 4. Replace screen if it is cracked, plugged or has holes burned through. 5. Reassemble in reverse order of removal. Make sure screen is positioned properly before tightening screws. A D C B GRASS TRIMMER/BRUSH CUTTER OPERATOR'S MANUAL CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENT Level 2. Tools required: Screwdriver, Tachometer (ECHO P/N 99051130017). Parts required: None. NOTE Every unit is run at the factory and the carburetor is set in compliance with emission regulations. In addition, the carburetor is equipped with HI and LO needle adjustment limiters that prevent settings outside acceptable limits. 1. Before adjusting the carburetor, clean or replace the air filter and spark arrester screen. 2. Trimmer line must be extended to the cut-off knife. 3. Start engine and run for several minutes to reach operating temperature. 4. Stop engine. Turn HI speed needle (A) CCW (counter clockwise) to stop. Turn LO speed needle (B) midway between full CCW and CW (clockwise) stops. 5. Idle Speed Adjustment. • Start engine and turn idle speed adjustment screw (C) CW until the cutting attachment begins to turn, then turn the screw CCW until attachment stops turning. Turn screw (C) CCW an additional 1/4 turn. 6. Accelerate to full throttle for 2-3 seconds to clear excess fuel from engine then return to idle. Accelerate to full throttle to check for smooth transition from idle to full throttle. If engine hesitates, turn LO needle (B) CCW an additional 1/8 turn and repeat acceleration. Continue adjusting until smooth acceleration results. 7. Check HI speed RPM at W.O.T. (Wide Open Throttle). HI speed RPM should be set to the specifications found on Page 11 "Specifications" of this manual for the type of cutting attachment on this unit. 8. Check idle speed and reset if necessary. If a tachometer is available, idle speed should be set to the specifications found on page 11 "Specifications" of this manual. WARNING DANGER When carburetor adjustment is completed, the cutting attachment should not turn at idle, otherwise serious personal injury may result. 25 26 LUBRICATION Level 1.

Index line out by pushing tap knob and trim line to cut-off knife length. 28 SHARPENING METAL BLADES Of the three styles of metal blades that are approved for use on the ECHO Brush Cutter, only the 8-tooth blade can be sharpened as an operator maintenance item. The clearing blade and 80 tooth blade require professional service. Before sharpening, CLOSELY inspect blade for cracks (look at the bottom of each tooth and the center mounting hole closely), missing teeth, and bending. If ANY of these problems are discovered, replace the blade. When sharpening a blade, always remove the same amount of material from each tooth to maintain balance. A blade that is not balanced will cause unsafe handling due to vibration, and can result in blade failure. Sharpening 8-tooth Blades Tool required: Flat file (preferred). Electric grinder (if special care is used) Round (rat tail) file for gullet (radius) IMPORTANT If an electric grinder is used, use care not to overheat teeth. DO NOT allow tips/tooth to glow red or turn blue. DO NOT place blade in cooling water. This will change the temper of the blade and could result in blade failure. 1. File each tooth at a 30 degree angle a specific number of times, eg. 4 strokes per tooth. Work your way around the blade until all teeth are sharp. 2. DO NOT file the 'gullet' (radius) of the tooth with the flat file. The radius must remain. A sharp corner will lead to a crack and blade failure. 3. After sharpening teeth, check each tooth radius for evidence of a square (sharp) corner. Use the round (rat tail) file to renew the radius.
