How to Start a Tomahawk Pro Series Concrete Screed

  1. Remove the fuel cap on the Honda Engine and add 91 Octane Gasoline to the tank.

  3. Close the choke and pump the primer bulb 3-5 times until you see fuel pass through the fuel lines.
  4. Pull the recoil starter cord until the engine starts.
  5. Open the choke in the few seconds after the engine starts.
