Helpful TipHELPFUL TIP
To obtain the correct oil mix ratio, pour 26 ounces of 2-cycle synthetic oil Ito one gallon of fresh gas.

IMPORTANT: This equipment is designed to operate on unleaded gasoline with a minimum 87 octane (R+M/2 method), with ethanol blended up to 10% maximum by volume (E-10). Be-fore operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 50:1. Poulan/WEED EATER brand synthetic oil is re-commended. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio of 50:1. A 50:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 2.6 fluid ounces of oil with 1 gallon 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. Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to assure fuel freshness.

CAUTION: Never use straight gasoline in your unit. This will cause permanent engine damage and void the limited warranty. Do not use alternate fuels such as ethanol blends above 10% by volume (E-15, E-85) or any methanol blended fuel. Use of these fuels can cause major engine performance and durability problems.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

It is recommended that the engine not be operated for longer than 1 minute at full throttle.

OPERATING POSITION

Operation Instruction

Warning IconWARNNIG: Always wear eye protection. Never lean over the trimmer head. Rocks or debris can ricochet or be thrown into eyes and face and cause blindness or other serious injury. When operating unit, stand as shown and check for the following:

  • Wear eye protection and heavy clothing.
  • Hold trigger handle with your right hand and assist handle with left hand. • Keep unit below waist level.
  • PR25CD: Cut only from your right to your left to ensure debris is thrown away from you.
  • PR25SD: Cut only from your left to your right to ensure debris is thrown away from you.
  • Without bending over, keep line near and parallel to the ground and not crowded into material being cut.

Do not run the engine at a higher speed than necessary. The cutting line will cut efficiently when the engine is run at less than full throttle. At lower speeds, there is less engine noise and vibration. The cutting line will last longer and will be less likely to “weld’ onto the spool. Always release the throttle trigger and allow the engine to return to idle speed when not cutting. To stop engine:

  • Release the throttle trigger.
  • Push and release the engine ON/STOP switch.

TRIMMER LINE ADVANCE

The trimmer line will advance approximately 2 inches (5 cm) each time the bottom of the trimmer head is tapped on the ground with the engine running at full throttle. The most efficient line length is the maximum length allowed by the line limiter. Always keep the shield in place when the tool is being operated.

To advance line:

  • Operate the engine at full throttle.
  • Hold the trimmer head parallel to and above the grassy area.
  • Tap the bottom of the trimmer head lightly on the ground one time. Approximately 2 inches (5 cm) of ine will be advanced with each tap.
    Always tap the trimmer head on a grassy area. Tapping on surfaces such as concrete or as phalt can cause excessive wear to the trimmer head. lf the line is worn down to 2 inches (5 cm) or less, more than one tap will be required to obtain the most efficient line length. Warning IconWARNNIG: Use only 0.095 in. (2.4 mm) diameter line. Other sizes of line will not advance properly and can cause serious injury. Do not use other materials such as wire, string, rope, etc. Wire can break off dur-ing cutting and become a dangerous pro- jectile that can cause serious injury.

CUTTING METHODS

Warning IconWARNNIG: Use minimum speed and do not crowd the line when cutting around hard objects (rock, gravel, fence posts, etc.), which can damage the trimmer head, become entangled in the line, or be thrown causing a serious hazard.

  • The tip of the line does the cutting. You will achieve the best performance and mini-mum line wear by not crowding the line into the cutting area. The right and wrong ways are shown below. Tip of the line Line crowded into does the cutting. work area.Product Overview      Product Overview
  • The line will easily remove grass and weeds from around walls, fences, trees and flower beds, but it also can cut the tender bark of trees or shrubs and scar fences.
  • For trimming or scalping, use less than full throttle to increase line life and decrease head wear, especially:
  • During light duty cutting.
  • Near objects around which the line can wrap such as small posts, trees or fence wire.
  • For mowing or sweeping, use full throttle for a good clean job.

TRIMMING – Hold the bottom of the trimmer head about 3 inches (8 cm) above the ground and at an angle. Mow only the tip of the line to make contact. Do not force trimmer line into work area.

SCALPING – The scalping technique removes unwanted vegetation down to the ground. Hold the bottom of the trimmer head about 3 in. (8 cm) above the ground and at an angle. Mow the tip of the line to strike the ground around trees, posts, monuments, etc. This technique in-creases line wear.

Moving Trimer

MOWING – Your trimmer is ideal for mowing in places conventional lawn mowers cannot reach. In the mowing position, keep the line parallel to the ground. Avoid pressing the  head into the ground as this can scalp the ground and damage the tool.

SWEEPING – The fanning action of the rotating line can be used to blow away loose debris from an area. Keep the line parallel to and above the area surface and swing the tool from side to side.

MAITENANCE

Warning IconWARNNIG: Disconnect the spark plug before performing maintenance except or idle speed adjustments.
