Your Husqvarna product has been designed and
manufactured to specifications that reduce harmful
After your unit has been run 8-10 tanks of fuel the engine
has broken in. To ensure that your unit is at peak
performance and producing the least amount of harmful
emissions after break in, have your authorized servicing
dealer, who has a revolution counter at his disposal, to adjust
your carburettor for optimum operating conditions.
• The carburettor governs
the engine speed via the
throttle trigger. In the
carburettor, air/fuel is
mixed. This air/fuel
mixture is adjustable. If
you want to take
advantage of the
maximum output of the
engine, the setting must be
• The setting of the
carburettor means that the
engine is adjusted to local
conditions, for example
climate, altitude, petrol
and type of two-stroke oil.
• The carburettor has three
L= Low speed needle
H= High speed
T= Idle speed adjustment
• The carburettor is set to its basic setting when test run at the
factory. The basic setting should be kept during the
machine‘s first working hours. Thereafter the carburettor
should be finely adjusted. Fine adjustment should be carried
out by a skilled technician.
NOTE! If the cutting attachment rotates/moves in the idling
position, turn the idling speed screw counter-clockwise until
the blade stops.
Rec. idling speed 2 700 rpm.
Recommended max. speed 11 000-12 000 rpm.
The complete clutch cover with shaft must
be fitted before the machine is started,
otherwise the clutch can become loose
and cause personal injury.
Contact your servicing dealer, if the idle
speed setting cannot be adjusted so
that the cutting attachment stops. Do
not use the machine until it has been
properly adjusted or repaired.
• When the machine has been ”run-in” the carburettor should
be finely adjusted. The fine adjustment should be carried
out by qualified person. First adjust the L-jet, then the
idling screw T and then the H-jet.
• Before any adjustments are made the airfilter should be clean
and the airfilter cover fitted. Adjusting the carburettor while
a dirty airfilter is in use will result in a leaner mixture when
the filter is finally cleaned. This can give rise to serious
• Carefully turn the L and H needle to the mid point between
fully turned in and fully turned out.
• Do not attempt to adjust the needles beyond the stops as
damage can occur.
• Now start the machine according to the starting instructions
and run it warm for 10 minutes.
NOTE! If the cutting attachment rotates/moves the T screw
should be turned anti-clockwise until the cutting attachment

clockwise. When the highest
speed has been found, turn
the low speed needle L 1/4
NOTE! If the cutting
attachment rotates/moves in
the idling position, turn the
idling speed screw T
counter-clockwise until the
cutting attachment stops.
• The idling speed screw T regulates the position of the
throttle lever in the idling speed position. Turn the idling
speed screw clockwise gives a higher idling speed, turn it
counter-clockwise a lower idling speed.
• The fuel quantity required
in proportion to the
airflow the throttle trigger
level allows is adjusted by
means of the L- and H-
needles. Turning the
needles clockwise gives a
leaner fuel mixture (less
fuel), turning them
counter-clockwise gives a
richer fuel mixture (more
fuel). A lean mixture gives
higher rpms and a rich one
