11 BEFORE START OF OPERATION Inspection and refill of engine oil Perform the following procedure, with the engine cooled down. Set the engine level, remove oil cap (Fig. 1), and check to see whether or not there is oil in the range between the upper limit and lower limit marks of the oil pipe (Fig. 2). Top up with oil to upper limit mark if oil is insufficient (oil level is close to lower limit mark) (Fig. 3). The area surrounding the external marks is transparent, so the amount of oil inside can be checked without having to remove the oil cap. However, if oil pipe becomes extremely dirty, visibility may be lost, and oil level will have to be checked against stepped section on inside of oil pipe. For reference, the oil refill time is about 10h (every 10 refuellings). If the oil changes in color or mixes with dirt, replace it with new one. (For the interval and method of replacement, refer to P 16) Recommended oil: SAE 10W-30 oil of API Classification, Class SF or higher (4-stroke engine for automobile) Oil volume: Approx. 0.08L Note: If the engine is not kept upright, oil may go into around the engine, and may be refilled excessively. If the oil is filled above the limit, the oil may be contaminated or may catch fire with white smoke. Point 1 in Replacement of oil: Oil cap Remove dust or dirt near the oil refill port, and detach the oil cap. Keep the detached oil cap free of sand or dust. Otherwise, any sand or dust adhering to the oil cap may cause irregular oil circulation or wear on the engine parts, which will result in troubles. External mark (upper limit) Oil Oil cap Internal stepped section (upper limit) External mark (lower limit) Oil pipe Internal stepped section (lower limit) Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Oil pipe Fig. 3 Top up with oil until oil level reaches internal stepped section (upper limit). The area between the external upper and lower limits is transparent, so oil level can be checked externally against these marks. (1) Keep the engine level, and detach the oil cap. (2) Fill with oil to upper limit mark. (see Fig. 3) Use oil bottle when filling. (3) Securely tighten the oil cap. Insufficient tightening may cause oil leakage. 11

12 Note Do not replace oil with the engine in a tilted position. Filling with oil while engine is tilted leads to overfilling which causes oil contamination and/or white smoke. Point 2 in Replacement of oil: If oil spills out If oil spills out between the fuel tank and engine main unit, the oil is sucked into through the cooling air intake port, which will contaminate the engine. Be sure to wipe out spilt oil before start of operation. REFUELING Handling of fuel It is necessary to handle fuel with utmost care. Fuel may contain substances similar to solvents. Refueling must be performed in a sufficiently ventilated room or in the open air. Never inhale fuel vapor, and keep fuel away from you. If you touch fuel repeatedly or for a long time, the skin becomes dry, which may cause skin disease or allergy. If fuel enters into the eye, clean the eye with fresh water. If your eye remains still irritated, consult your doctor. Storage period of fuel Fuel should be used up within a period of 4 weeks, even if it is kept in a special container in a well-ventilated shade. If a special container is not used or if the container is not covered, fuel may deteriorate in one day. STORAGE OF MACHINE AND REFILL TANK Keep the machine and tank at a cool place free from direct sunshine. Never keep the fuel in the cabin or trunk. Fuel The engine is a four-stroke engine. Be sure to use an automobile gasoline (regular gasoline or premium gasoline). Points for fuel Never use a gasoline mixture which contains engine oil. Otherwise, it will cause excessive carbon accumulation or mechanical troubles. Use of deteriorated oil will cause irregular startup. Refueling WARNING: INFLAMMABLES STRICTLY PROHIBITED Gasoline used: Automobile gasoline (unleaded gasoline) Loosen the tank cap a little so that there will be no difference in atmospheric pressure. Detach the tank cap, and refuel, discharging air by tilting the fuel tank so that the refuel port will be oriented upward. (Never refill fuel full to the oil refill port.) Wipe well the periphery of the tank cap to prevent foreign matter from entering into the fuel tank. After refueling, securely tighten the tank cap. If there is any flaw or damage on the tank cap, replace it. The tank cap is consumable, and therefore should be renewed every two to three years. Fuel upper limit Fuel tank Fuel tank cap 12

If oil cap is not tightly secured, it may leak. External mark (upper limit) Internal stepped section (upper limit) External mark (lower limit) Internal stepped section (lower limit) Upper limit mark Oil POINTS ON OIL Never discard replaced engine oil in garbage, earth or sewage ditch. Disposal of oil is regulated by law. In disposal, always follow the relevant laws and regulations. For any points remaining unknown, contact Authorized Service Agent. Oil will deteriorate even when it is kept unused. Perform inspection and replacement at regular intervals (replace with new oil every 6 months). CLEANING OF AIR CLEANER DANGER: INFLAMMABLES STRICTLY PROHIBITED Interval of cleaning and inspection: Daily (every 10 operating hours) Turn the choke lever to the full close side, and keep the carburetor off from dust or dirt. Loosen the fixing bolt. Remove the air cleaner cover by pulling its bottom side. Remove the elements and tap them to remove dirt. If the elements are heavily contaminated: Remove the elements, immerse them in warm water or in water-diluted neutral detergent, and dry them completely. Do not squeeze or rub them when washing. Before attaching the elements, be sure to dry them completely. Insufficient drying of the elements may lead to difficult startup. Wipe out oil adhering around the air cleaner cover and the breather part with waste cloth. Fit the element (sponge) into the element (felt). Fit the elements into the plate so that the sponge faces the air cleaner cover. Immediately attach the cleaner cover and tighten it with fixing bolts. (In remounting, first place the upper claw, and then the lower claw.) Air cleaner cover Element (sponge) Element (felt) Fixing bolt Plate Breather part Choke lever NOTICE: Clean the elements several times a day, if excessive dust adheres to it. Dirty elements reduce engine power and make starting engine difficult. Remove oil on the elements. If operation continues with the elements remaining not cleared of oil, oil in the air cleaner may fall outside, resulting in contamination of the environment. Do not put the elements on the ground or dirty place. Otherwise they pick up dirt or debris and it may damage the engine. Never use fuel for cleaning the elements. Fuel may damage them. 17

18 CHECKING THE SPARK PLUG Only use the supplied universal wrench to remove or to install the spark plug. The gap between the two electrodes of the spark plug should be mm ( ). If the gap is too wide or too narrow, adjust it. If the spark plug is clogged or contaminated, clean it thoroughly or replace it. CAUTION: Never touch the spark plug connector while the engine is running (danger of high voltage electric shock). 0.7 mm mm ( ) CLEANING OF FUEL FILTER WARNING: INFLAMMABLES STRICTLY PROHIBITED Interval of cleaning and inspection: Monthly (every 50 operating hours) Suction head in the fuel tank Check the fuel filter periodically. To check the fuel filter, follow the steps below. (1) Remove the fuel tank cap, drain the fuel to empty the tank. Check the tank inside for any foreign materials. If any, remove them. (2) Pull out the suction head by using a wire hook through the tank opening. (3) If the fuel filter clogged slightly, clean it. To clean it, gently shake and tap it in fuel. To avoid damage, do not squeeze or rub it. The fuel used for the cleaning must be disposed in accordance with the method specified by regulations in your country. If the fuel filter became hard or heavily clogged up, replace it. (4) After checking, cleaning or replacing, push the fuel filter in all the way to the bottom of the fuel tank. Clogged or damaged fuel filter can cause insufficient fuel supply and reduce engine power. Replace the fuel filter at least quarterly to ensure satisfactory fuel supply to the carburetor. Fuel pipe Hose clamp Fuel filter REPLACEMENT OF FUEL PIPE CAUTION: INFLAMMABLES STRICTLY PROHIBITED Interval of cleaning and inspection: Daily (every 10 operating hours) Replacement: Annually (every 200 operating hours) Replace the fuel pipe every year, regardless of operating frequency. Fuel leakage may lead to fire. If any leakage is detected during inspection, replace the fuel pipe immediately. Fuel pipe INSPECTION OF BOLTS, NUTS AND SCREWS Retighten loose bolts, nuts, etc. Check for fuel and oil leakage. Replace damaged parts with new ones for safety operation. CLEANING OF PARTS Keep the engine always clean. Keep the cylinder fins free of dust or dirt. Dust or dirt adhering to the fins will cause piston seizure. REPLACEMENT OF GASKETS AND PACKINGS In reassembling after the engine is dismounted, be sure to replace the gaskets and packings with new ones. Any maintenance of adjustment work that is not included and described in this manual is only to be performed by Authorized Service Agents. 18

19 STORAGE WARNING: When draining the fuel, be sure to stop the engine and confirm that the engine cools down. Just after stopping the engine, it may still hot with possibility of burns, inflammability and fire. ATTENTION: When the machine is kept out of operation for a long time, drain up all fuel from the fuel tank and carburetor, and keep it at a dry and clean place. Drain up fuel from the fuel tank and carburetor according to the following procedure: 1) Remove the fuel tank cap, and drain fuel completely. If there is any foreign matter remaining in the fuel tank, remove it completely. 2) Pull out the fuel filter from the refill port using a wire. 3) Push the primer pump until fuel is drained from there, and drain fuel coming into the fuel tank. 4) Reset the filter to the fuel tank, and securely tighten the fuel tank cap. 5) Then, continue to operate the engine until it stops. Drain fuel Humidity Remove the spark plug, and drip several drops of engine oil through the spark plug hole. Gently pull the starter handle so that engine oil will spread over the engine, and attach the spark plug. Do not move the lever in the lock position while not mounting the attachment. The lever in the lock position without the attachment being mounted does not allow the pole shaft of the attachment to be mounted. In general, store the machine in horizontal position. If it is not possible, place the machine as the motor unit comes below the cutting tool. Otherwise engine oil may leak from inside. Always pay attention to storing the machine in a safe place to prevent machine damage and personal injury. Keep the drained fuel in a special container in a well-ventilated shade.
