Adjust the handlebar to a comfortable position around waist height for normal tilling ( see page 12 ) . 3 . Set the filling depth by moving the drag bar up or down ( see page 12 ) . The ideal height of the drag bar will depend on the type of soil being filled , and soil condkions at the time of tilling , tn general , however , the drag bar should be adjusted so that the filler is tilted slightly backward . 4 . Start the engine ( see page 13 ) . 5 . Tilt the tiller back until the tines are off the ground . Squeeze the throttle lever to full speed position ( lever tight against the grip ) . 6 . Lower the front of the tiller until the tines begin to dig into the ground . 7 . Lower the handle slightly so the front of the tiller is raised about 6 - 8 ° . To get the maximum advantage from the tiller , hold the tiller at this angle while you are tilling the ground . HANDLEBARS 6 _ 8 ° Handling Tips , tf the filler tends to move forward rapidly , push down on the handlebars to allow the drag bar to penetrate the soil and slow the forward motion of the filler . Continue to press down until the tiller tines have dug to a desired depth that allows easy filler handling . tf the tines dig in but the tiller will not move forward , ease up on the handlebars and move the handlebars from side - to - side , tf the tiller still digs in , but will not move forward , raise the drag bar up a hole . When turning , push down on the handlebars to bring the tiller's weight to the rear ; this will make turning easier . 14 FG100 TILLER

TECHNICAL & CONSUMER iNFORMATiON OXYGENATED FUELS Some conventional gasolines are being blended with alcohol or an ether compound . These gasolines are collectively referred to as oxygenated fuels . To meet clean air standards , some areas of the USA and Canada use oxygenated fuels to help reduce emissions . If you use an oxygenated fuel , be sure it is unleaded and meets the minimum octane rating requirement . Before using an oxygenated fuel , try to confirm the fuel's contents . Some states ! provinces require this information to be posted on the pump . The following are the EPA approved percentages of oxygenates : ETHANOL . . . . . . . . ( ethyl or grain alcohol ) 10 % by volume You may use gasoline containing up to 10 % ethanol by volume . Gasoline containing ethanol may be marketed under the name " GasohoU ' MTBE ( Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether ) 15 % by volume You may use gasoline containing up to 15 % MTBE by volume . METHANOL . . . . . . ( methyl or wood alcohol ) 5 % by volume You may use gasoline containing up to 5 % methanol by volume , as long as it also contains cosoJvents and corrosion inhibkors to protect the fuel system . Gasoline containing more than 5 % methanol by volume may cause starting and / or performance problems . Jt may also damage metal , rubber , and plastic parts of your fuel system . If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms , try another service station , or switch to another brand of gasoline . Fuel system damage or performance problems resulting from the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more than the percentages of oxygenates mentioned above are not covered under warranty . CARBURETOR MODiFiCATiONS FOR HiGH ALTITUDE OPERATION At high altitude , the standard carburetor air - fuel mixture will be too rich . Performance will decrease , and fuel consumption will increase . A very rich mixture will also foul the spark plug and cause hard starting . Operation at an altitude that differs from that at which this engine was certified , for extended periods of time , may increase emissions . High altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications to the carburetor . If you always operate your tiller at altitudes above 5,000 feet ( 1,500 meters ) , have your servicing dealer perform this carburetor modification . This engine , when operated at high altitude , with carburetor modifications for high altitude use , will meet each emission standard throughout its useful life . Even with carburetor modification , engine horsepower will decrease about 3.5 % for each 1,000 - foot ( 300 - meter ) increase in altitude . The effect of altitude on horsepower will be greater than this if no carburetor modification is made . i NOTICE j When the carburetor has been modified for high altitude operation , the air - fuel mixture will be too lean for low altitude use . Operation at altitudes below 5,000 feet ( 1,500 meters ) with a modified carburetor may cause the engine to overheat and result in serious engine damage . For use at low altitudes , have } , our servicing dealer retum the carburetor to original factor } , specifications . FG100 TILLER 45
