S To reduce noise levels, operate power blowers at the lowest possible throttle speed to do the job.

SUse rakes and brooms to loosen debris be-

fore blowing.

S In dusty conditions, slightly dampen sur- faces or use a mister attachment when wa- ter is available.

S Conserve water by using power blowers instead of hoses for many lawn and garden applications, including areas such as gutters, screens, patios, grills, porches, and gardens.

SWatch out for children, pets, open windows, or freshly washed cars. Blow debris away


SUse the full blower nozzle extension so the air stream can work close to the ground.

SAfter using blowers and other equipment, CLEAN UP! Dispose of debris in trash re- ceptacles.


FUELING ENGINE WARNING: Be sure to read the fuel information in the safety rules before you be- gin. If you do not understand the safety rules, do not attempt to fuel your unit. Call 1-800-554-6723.


HELPFUL TIP WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly when refueling.


To obtain the correct oil mix ratio, pour 3.2 ounces of 2-cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas.

This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1. Poulan PRO brand synthetic oil is recommended. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio of 40:1. A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 fluid ounces (95 ml) of oil with 1 gallon (4 liters) of unleaded gasoline. DO NOT USE automotive oil or marine oil. These oils will cause engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on container. Once oil is added to gasoline, shake container momentarily to assure that the fuel is thoroughly mixed. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit.

CAUTION: Never use straight gasoline in your unit. This will cause permanent engine damage and void the limited warranty.


This engine requires the use of minimum 87 octane [R+M]/2 clean gasoline.


Use of alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can cause major engine performance and durability problems.

FUEL REQUIREMENTS WARNING: Alternative fuels (not gas- oline) such as E--15 (15% alcohol), E--20 (20%

alcohol), E--85 (85% alcohol) are NOT classified as gasoline and are NOT approved for use in 2--stroke gasoline engines. Use of alternative fuels will cause problems such as: improper clutch engagements, overheating, vapor lock, power loss, lubrication deficiency, deterioration of fuel lines, gaskets and internal carburetor components, etc. Alternative fuels cause high moisture absorption into the fuel/oil mixture leading to oil and fuel separation.

S Push and hold the STOP switch in the STOP position until the engine stops.


HOW TO STOP YOUR ENGINE WARNING: You MUST make sure the tubes are secure before using the unit.

DFuel engine. Move at least 10 feet (3 me- ters) away from the fueling site.
