    • 1). Put on leather work gloves, safety glasses and closed-toe shoes for protection while using the Homelite gas trimmer. Place the trimmer on a flat and level surface.

    • 2). Wipe any debris from around the fuel filler cap and remove the cap from the fuel tank. Pour mixed fuel into the tank and do not allow the fuel to overflow. Replace the cap securely on the tank.

    • 3). Hold the Homelite trimmer securely with one hand and locate the primer bulb located near the carburetor. Push the bulb 10 times and move the choke lever to full choke.

    • 4). Fully depress the throttle trigger and pull the starter cord to crank the engine. Hold the throttle at full for 30 to 40 seconds after the Homelite trimmer starts, then move the choke to the run or middle position.

    • 5). Hold the trimmer with one hand around the shaft at the throttle trigger and the other hand on the handle located further down on the trimmer shaft.

    • 6). Advance trimmer line through the trimmer head by holding the trimmer with the head level with the ground. Depress the throttle to increase engine speed and tap the head so that the button on the bottom of the head is depressed against the ground.
