The ignition components of this machine generate an electromagnetic field during operation which may interfere with some pacemakers. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, persons with pacemakers should consult with their physician and the pacemaker manufacturer before operating this machine. In the absence of such informa tion, ECHO does not recommend the use of ECHO products by anyone who has a pacemaker. Vibration and Cold It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects the fingers of certain individuals may be brought about by exposure to vibration and cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling and burning sen sations followed by loss of color and numbness in the fingers. The following precautions are strongly recommended because the minimum exposure which might trigger the ailment is unknown. • Keep your body warm, especially the head, neck, feet, ankles, hands and wrists. • Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous arm exercises during frequent work breaks and also by not smoking. • Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill each day with jobs where operating the unit or other hand-held power equipment is not required. • If you experience discomfort, redness, and swelling of the fingers followed by whitening and loss of feeling, consult your physician before further exposing yourself to cold and vibration. Power PrunerTM Operator's Manual 5 Repetitive Stress Injuries It is believed that overusing the muscles and tendons of the fingers, hands, arms and shoulders may cause soreness, swelling, numbness, weakness and extreme pain in those areas. Certain repetitive hand activities may put you at a high risk for developing a Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). An extreme RSI condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), which could occur when your wrist swells and squeezes a vital nerve that runs through the area. Some believe that prolonged exposure to vibration may contribute to CTS. CTS can cause severe pain for months or even years. To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following: • Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended or twisted position. In stead try to maintain a straight wrist position. Also, when grasping, use your whole hand, not just the thumb and index finger. • Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest your hands. • Reduce the speed and force with which you do the repetitive move ment. • Do exercises to strengthen the hand and arm muscles. • Immediately stop using all power equipment and consult a doctor if you feel tingling, numbness or pain in the fingers, hands, wrists or arms. The sooner RSI/CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent nerve and muscle damage can be prevented. danger All over head electrical conductors and communications wires can have electricity flow with high voltages. This unit is not insulated against electrical current. Never touch wires directly or indirectly when pruning, otherwise serious injury or death may result. warning Do not operate this product indoors or in inadequately ventilated areas. Engine exhaust contains poisonous emissions and can cause serious injury or death. Read the Manuals • Provide all users of this equipment with the Operator’s Manual and Safety Manual for instructions on Safe Operation. Clear the Work Area • Spectators and fellow workers must be warned, and children and animals prevented from coming nearer than 15 m (50 ft.) while the unit is in use. Use Proper Clothing & Equipment • Always wear head protection with full face shield to help protect against falling branches and debris. Keep A Firm Grip • Grip Power PrunerTM with both hands with thumbs and fingers encir cling the handle, and shaft tube. 6 Keep A Solid Stance • Maintain footing and balance at all times. Do not stand on slippery, uneven or unstable surfaces. Do not work in odd positions or on ladders. Do not overreach. • Operate the Power PrunerTM only from the ground or out of an ap proved bucket lift. • Always evaluate the branches to be pruned for hazards such as loose dead branches which may fall and strike the operator or helpers. Remove hazards before pruning. • Plan retreat path from falling objects. • Cut branches bounce when striking ground. • Check that shoulder harness is adjusted for safe, comfortable opera tion. See picture at right for proper adjustment. • Turn the Power PrunerTM off when moving from tree to tree. • Avoid any contact with saw chain. Avoid Hot Surfaces • Keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris. Avoid contact during and immediately after operation. kickback warning Kickback can lead to dangerous loss of control of the Power PrunerTM and result in serious injury to the operator or any one standing close by. Hold the Power PrunerTM firmly with both hands with thumbs and fingers encircling the front and rear handles. Be aware of the down and outward path the pruner will take after the cut is made. Kickback may occur when the moving saw chain at the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an object, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut. In some cases this may cause a lightning-fast reverse action, kicking the guide bar and saw chain up and back or down and back towards the operator. Either of these reactions may cause the operator to lose control of the Power PrunerTM which could result in serious personal injury. With a basic understanding of kickback, you can reduce or eliminate the element of surprise which contributes to accidents. Avoid contact of the guide bar tip with any object while the saw chain is moving. Cut only wood. Avoid striking concrete, metal, wire, or other obstruc tions which could cause kickback or damage to the saw chain. If the saw chain does strike a foreign object, immediately stop the en gine, inspect and repair the Power PrunerTM if necessary. Power PrunerTM Operator's Manual 7 equipment WARNING Serious injury may result from the use of non approved guide bar and saw chain combinations. ECHO, INC. will not be responsible for the failure of cutting devices or accessories which have not been tested and approved by ECHO for use with this unit. Read and comply with all safety instructions listed in this manual. • Check unit for loose/missing nuts, bolts, and screws. Tighten and/or replace as needed. Guide Bar and Saw Chain • Check that the cutting attachment, guide bar, and saw chain is firmly attached and in safe operating condition. • Use only one Echo-approved extension on the pruner. • Do not hit rocks, stones, tree stumps, and other foreign objects with the saw chain. • Do not cut into the ground with the saw chain. • If cutting attachment end strikes an obstruction, stop engine immediately and inspect saw chain for damage. • Do not operate with a dull, fractured, or discolored saw chain. • Remove all foreign objects from work area. • Always cover the guide bar and saw chain with guide bar cover during transportation and for storage. WARNING Moving parts can amputate fingers or cause severe injuries. Keep hands, clothing and loose objects away from all openings. • ALWAYS stop engine, disconnect spark plug, and make sure all moving parts have come to a complete stop before removing obstructions, clearing debris, or servicing unit. • DO NOT start or operate unit unless all guards and protective covers are properly assembled to unit. • NEVER reach into any opening while the engine is running. Moving parts may not be visible through openings. WARNINg Check fuel system for leaks due to fuel tank damage, especially if the unit is dropped. If damage or leaks are found, do not use unit, otherwise serious personal injury or property damage may occur. Have unit repaired by an autho rized servicing dealer before using. 8 Emission Control (exhaust & evaporative) EPA 2010 and Later and/or C.A.R.B.

The Power PrunerTM is designed for light to medium trimming of limbs and branches up to 203 mm (8 in.) in diameter. Follow these tips for successful operation. • Plan cut carefully. Check direction branch will fall. • Plan retreat path from falling branch. Cut branches bounce when striking ground. • Long branches should be removed in several pieces. • Do not stand directly beneath branch being cut. • When ready to cut: Hold "cutting shoe" against branch. This will prevent whipping of the branch. DO NOT use back and forth sawing action. A CORRECT GUIDE AGAINST BRANCH NOT CORRECT PPT-266H/S
• Look out for branch immediately behind the branch being cut. If saw chain hits rear branch damage to saw chain may occur. • Accelerate to full throttle. • Apply cutting pressure. • Ease cutting pressure when nearing end of cut to maintain control. • When pruning a limb 102 mm (4 in.) diameter or larger cut as fol lows: 1. Under cut 1/4 limb diameter near tree trunk. 2. Finish top cut slightly farther out on limb. 3. Flush cut stub at trunk. • DO NOT use for felling or bucking. BLADE HITS REAR BRANCH NOT CORRECT
