A. Safety Precautions
Important! The following safety precautions must always be observed.
Fuel (gasoline) is extremely flammable and its vapors can explode
if ignited. Store gasoline only in approved containers, in well-
ventilated, unoccupied approved areas, and away from sparks or
flames. Do not fill the fuel tank while the engine is hot or running.
Do not start the engine near spilled fuel. Never use the
fuel as a cleaning agent
Engine components can get extremely hot from operation. To
prevent burns, do not touch the engine or related parts while the
engine is running or immediately after it is turned off. Never
operate the engine with any heat shields or guards removed.
Keep all guards in place when operating any piece of equipment
Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from all rotating parts
Lethal Exhaust Gas use only in well ventilated areas. Engine
exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon monoxide, which is
orderless, colorless, and can cause death if inhaled. Avoid
inhaling exhaust fumes, and never run the engine in a closed
building or confined area
Never tamper with the governor components of settings to
increase the maximum speed. Severe personal injury and damage
to the engine or equipment can result if operated at speed above
maximum. Always obey the maximum speed rating of blade.
