Dear Customer,

Congratulations on your choice to buy a Husqvarna product! Husqvarna is based on a tradition that dates back to 1689,

when the Swedish King Karl XI ordered the construction of a factory on the banks of the Husqvarna River, for production

of muskets. The location was logical, since water power was harnessed from the Huskvarna River to create the water-

powered plant. During the more than 300 years of beeing, the Husqvarna factory has produced a lot of different products,

from wood stoves to modern kitchen appliances, sewing machines, bicycles, motorcycles etc. In 1956, the first motor

driven lawn mowers appeared, followed by chain saws in 1959, and it is within this area Husqvarna is working today.

Today Husqvarna is one of the leading manufacturers in the world of forest and garden products, with quality as our

highest priority. The business concept is to develop, manufacture and market motor driven products for forestry and

gardening as well as for building and construction industry. Husqvarna

s aim is also to be in the front edge according to

ergonomics, usability, security and environmental protection. That is the reason why we have developed many different

features to provide our products within these areas.

We are convinced that you will appreciate with great satisfaction the quality and performance of our product for a very

long time to come. The purchase of one of our products gives you access to professional help with repairs and service

whenever this may be necessary. If the retailer who sells your machine is not one of our authorised dealers, ask for the

address of your nearest service workshop.

It is our wish that you will be satisfied with your product and that it will be your companion for a long time. Think of this


s manual as a valuable document. By following its

content (using, service, maintenance etc) the life span and

the second-hand value of the machine can be extended. If you will sell this machine, make sure that the buyer will get

s manual.

Thank you for using a Husqvarna product.

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.

CAUTION! Do not use the machine unless you are

able to call for help in the event of an accident.

2 Inspect the working area. Remove all loose objects,

such as stones, broken glass, nails, steel wire, string,

etc. that could be thrown out or become wrapped

around the cutting attachment.

3 Do not use the machine in bad weather, such as

dense fog, heavy rain, strong wind, intense cold, etc.

Working in bad weather is tiring and often brings

added risks, such as icy ground, unpredictable felling

direction, etc.

4 Make sure you can move and stand safely. Check the

area around you for possible obstacles (roots, rocks,

branches, ditches, etc.) in case you have to move

suddenly. Take great care when working on sloping

into the area to be cut.

Constant contact of this type can cause damage and

wear to the trimmer head.


The fan effect of the rotating cord can be used for

quick and easy clearing up. Hold the cord parallel to

and above the area to be swept and move the tool to

and fro.

The cord can easily remove grass and weeds up

against walls, fences, trees and borders, however it

can also damage sensitive bark on trees and bushes,

and damage fence posts.

Reduce the risk of damaging plants by shortening the

cord to 10-12 cm and reducing the engine speed.


The clearing technique removes all unwanted

vegetation. Keep the trimmer head just above the

ground and tilt it. Let the end of the cord strike the

ground around trees, posts, statues and the like.

When cutting and sweeping you should use full

throttle to obtain the best results.

Adjustment of the idle speed

Before any adjustments are made, make sure that the air

filter is clean and the air filter cover is fitted.

Adjust the idle speed using the idle adjustment screw T, if

it is necessary to readjust. First turn the idle adjustment

screw T clockwise until the cutting attachment starts to

rotate. Then turn the screw anticlockwise until the cutting

attachment stops. The idle speed is correctly adjusted

when the engine will run smoothly in every position. The

idle speed should also be well below the speed at which

the cutting attachment starts to rotate.

Some mufflers are equipped with a special spark arrestor

mesh. If your machine has this type of muffler, you should

clean the mesh at least once a week. This is best done

operation or earlier if necessary.

To keep the working temperature as low as possible the

machine is equipped with a cooling system.


CAUTION! Always use the recommended spark plug

type! Use of the wrong spark plug can damage the piston/

cylinder. Check that the spark plug is fitted with a

1 Air intake on the starter.

2 Cooling fins on the cylinder.

Spark plug

The spark plug condition is influenced by:

Incorrect carburettor adjustment.

An incorrect fuel mixture (too much or incorrect type

of oil).

A dirty air filter.

These factors cause deposits on the spark plug

electrodes, which may result in operating problems and

starting difficulties.

If the machine is low on power, difficult to start or runs

poorly at idle speed: always check the spark plug first

before taking any further action. If the spark plug is dirty,

clean it and check that the electrode gap is 0,5 mm. The

quite quickly and collect in the bottom.

The air filter must be regularly cleaned to remove dust

and dirt in order to avoid:

Carburettor malfunctions

Starting problems

Loss of engine power

Bevel gear

Unnecessary wear to engine parts.

Excessive fuel consumption.

The bevel gear is filled with the right quantity of grease at

the factory. However, before using the machine you

should check that the bevel gear is filled three-quarters

full with grease. Use HUSQVARNA special grease.

Clean the filter every 25 hours, or more regularly if

conditions are exceptionally dusty.

The grease in the bevel gear does not normally need to

be changed except if repairs are carried out.

Cleaning the air filter

Remove the air filter cover and take out the filter. Wash it

clean in warm, soapy water. Ensure that the filter is dry

before refitting it.

An air filter that has been in use for a long time cannot be

cleaned completely. The filter must therefore be replaced

with a new one at regular intervals. A damaged air filter

must always be replaced.

If the machine is used in dusty conditions the air filter

should be soaked in oil. See instructions under the

heading Oiling the air filter.

Oiling the air filter

Always use HUSQVARNA filter oil, art. no. 531 00 92-48.

The filter oil contains a solvent to make it spread evenly

through the filter. You should therefore avoid skin contact.

Put the filter in a plastic bag and pour the filter oil over it.

Knead the plastic bag to distribute the oil. Squeeze the

excess oil out of the filter inside the plastic bag and pour

off the excess before fitting the filter to the machine. Never
