SAFETY WARNINGS
FOR GAS UNITS
WARNING:
Use caution
when handling
fuel.
Gasoline
is highly flammable
and its vapors
can explode
if
ignited. Take the following
precautions:
Store fuel only in containers
specifically
designed
and approved
for the storage
of such materials.
Always stop
the engine and allow it to cool before filling
the
tank. Never remove the fuel tank cap or add fuel when the
engine
is hot. Always
loosen the fuel tank cap slowly
to relieve
any pressure
in the tank before fueling.
Always mix and add fuel in a clean, well-ventilated
outdoor
area
where there are no sparks
or flames. DO NOT smoke.
Never operate
the unit without
the fuel cap securely
in place.
Avoid
creating a source
of ignition for spilled
fuel. Wipe
up any
spilled
fuel from the unit immediately,
before starting
the unit.
Move the unit at least 30 ft. (9.1 m) from the fueling source
and
site before starting
the engine. DO NOT smoke.
Never start or run the unit inside a closed
room
or building.
Breathing exhaust
fumes can kill. Operate
this unit only in a well
ventilated
outdoor
area.
WHILE
OPERATING
Wear safety glasses or goggles
that meet current ANSi
Z87.1

as such.
Wear ear/hearing
protection
when operating
this unit. Wear a face mask or dust mask
if the

is dusty. Use a hard hat or other type of safety helmet.
Wear safety boots and protective
gloves. Wear heavy, snug-
fitting
clothes,
including
long pants and a long-sleeve
shirt. Do
not wear loose clothing,
jewelry,
short pants, sandals
or go
barefoot.
Secure hair above shoulder
level.
Make sure the saw chain is not in contact
with anything
before
starting the unit.
Use the unit only in daylight
or good
artificial
light.
Avoid accidental
starting.
Be in the starting position whenever
pulling the starter rope. The operator and unit must be in a stable
position while starting. Refer to
Starting and Stopping.

purpose:
to
cut wood.
Do not use the unit for cutting
plastic,
masonry
or
other non-wood
building
materials.
Only use the unit as
described
in this manual.
Keep all body parts away from the saw chain when the unit is

hot
from operation,
even after the unit is turned off.
Do not operate the unit faster than the speed needed to do the job.
Do not run the unit at high speed when not in use.
Do not force the unit, especially
near the end of a cut. It will do a
better, safer job when used at the intended
rate.
Always
turn the engine off when operation
is delayed,
when
setting the unit down
or when
carrying the unit from one location
to another.
Make sure all moving
parts come to a complete
stop.
Carry the unit by the front handle with
the muffler positioned
away from the body and the guide bar positioned
to the rear.

with a foreign
object, stop
the
unit immediately
and check for damage.
Do not operate
the unit
before repairing
damage.
Do not operate
the unit with
loose or
damaged
parts.
Use only original
equipment
manufacturer
(OEM) replacement
parts and accessories
for this unit. These are available from a
Sears or other qualified
service dealer. Use of any other parts or
accessories
could
lead to serious
injury to the user, or damage
to the unit, and void the warranty.
Keep the unit clean. Carefully
remove vegetation
and other
debris that could
block moving
parts.
To reduce fire hazard, replace a faulty
muffler and spark arrestor.
Keep the engine and muffler free from grass, leaves, excessive
grease or carbon
build up.
If the unit starts to vibrate
abnormally,
stop the unit immediately.
Inspect
the unit for the cause of the vibration.
Vibration
is
generally
an indicator
of trouble.
Keep the work
area clean. Cluttered
areas invite injuries. Do not
start cutting
until the work area is clear and free from
obstructions.
Make sure there is secure footing
and a planned
retreat
path from falling trees or branches.
Do not cut near electrical
cables
or power
lines. Keep at least 50
feet (15 m) away from all power lines.
For safer, more effective
performance,
make sure the guide bar
and chain
are properly
cleaned,
lubricated,
tightened
and
sharpened.
Check
the guide bar and chain at frequent
intervals
for proper
adjustment.
When cutting
a limb that is under tension,
use extreme
caution.
When the tension
is released, the limb could
spring
back and
strike the operator,
causing severe
injury or death.
