Cutting attachment shield.

Cutting attachment (trimmer head, or brushcutter blade).

Correct operators handle (see page 8).

Kit containing cutting attachment shield mounting bracket and hardware, operator’s handle mounting bracket and hardware, gearcase tool holder, this manual and tool kit for routine maintenance. Tool kits vary by model and may include a hex wrench, spanner and a combination spark plug wrench/screwdriver.

Carefully inspect all components for damage.

IMPORTANT!

The terms “left”, “left-hand”, and “LH”; “right”, “right-hand”, and “RH”; “front” and “rear” refer to directions as viewed by the operator during normal operation.

Handle

T230 - Connect the Handle to the Outer Tube.

1.Position the handle on the outer tube forward of Handle Positioning Label as shown in Figure 7.

2.Install the mounting bracket with the socket head cap screws. Tighten the screws finger-tight ONLY at this time.

3.Locate the handle in the best position for operator comfort (usually about 10 inches ahead of the throttle housing).

4.Secure the handle by alternately tightening the four socket-head screws in a diagonal or “crisscross” fashion.

T230X - Connect the Handle to the Outer Tube.

1.Position the handle on the outer tube forward of Handle Positioning Label as shown in Figure 8.

2.Install the barrier bar with the socket head cap screws and nuts. Tighten the screws finger-tight only at this time.

3.Locate the handle in the best position for operator comfort (usually about 10 inches ahead of the throttle housing).
