WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated
(corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas
invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such
as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust.
Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the
plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such
as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water
entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying,
pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or
entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension
cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for
outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable,
use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected
supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock.
SAFETY GUIDELINES - DEFINITIONS

3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power
tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the
off-position before connecting to power source and/or
battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power
tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the
power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part
of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep
your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving
parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for
your application. The correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on
and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack from the power tool before making any
Page 3
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do
not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition
that may affect the power toolʼs operation. If damaged,
have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in
accordance with these instructions, taking into account the
working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of
the power tool for operations different from those intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of
battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another
battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically designated battery
packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
c) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other
metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws,
or other small metal objects that can make a connection
from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals
together may cause burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the
battery, avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush
with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause
irritation or burns.

HEDGE TRIMMER SAFETY WARNINGS
• Use both hands when operating the hedge trimmer. Using one
hand could cause loss of control and result in serious
personal injury.
• Keep all parts of the body away from the cutter blade. Do not
remove cut material or hold material to be cut when blades are
moving. Make sure the switch is off when clearing jammed
material. Blades coast after turn off. A moment of inattention
while operating the hedge trimmer may result in serious personal
injury.
• Carry the hedge trimmer by the handle with the cutter blade
stopped. Proper handling of the hedge trimmer will reduce
possible personal injury from the cutter blades.
• Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
because the cutter blade may contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Cutter blades contacting a "live" wire may make exposed
metal parts of the power tool "live" and could give the operator an
electric shock.
• Keep cable away from cutting area. During operation the cable
may be hidden in shrubs and can be accidentally cut by the blade.
• DANGER - Keep hands away from blade. Contact with blade will
result in serious personal injury.

will prevent serious damage to the battery pack. Longest life and
best performance can be obtained if battery pack is charged
when air temperature is about 75°F (24°C).
While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to
touch. This is a normal condition and does not indicate a
problem.
If the battery pack does not charge properly—(1) Check current
at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or other appliance. (2)
Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch which
turns power off when you turn out the lights. (3) Move charger
and battery pack to a surrounding air temperature of 40°F
(+4.5°C) to 105°F (+40.5°C). (4) If the receptacle and
temperature are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take
or send the battery pack and charger to your local
Black & Decker service center. See Tools Electric in yellow
pages.
The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce
sufficient power on jobs which were easily done previously. DO
NOT CONTINUE using unit with its battery pack in a depleted
condition.
The battery pack will reach optimum performance after being
cycled 5 times during normal usage. There is no need to run the
battery pack down completely before recharging. Normal usage
is the best method of discharging and recharging the battery
pack.
STORAGE RECOMMENDATION
1. Store tool:
a.) with the battery pack removed and on the charger.
b.) in a place that is cool and dry away from direct sunlight and excess
heat or cold.

WARNING: Remove battery pack before servicing, cleaning or
removing material from the gardening appliance.
The cutting blades are made from high quality,
9
hardened steel and with normal usage, they will not
require resharpening. However, if you accidentally
hit a wire fence (figure 9), stones, glass or other
hard objects, you may put a nick in the blade. There
is no need to remove this nick as long as it does not
interfere with the movement of the blade. If it does
interfere, remove the battery and use a fine toothed
file or sharpening stone to remove the nick. If you
drop the trimmer, carefully inspect it for damage. If
the blade is bent, housing cracked, or handles
broken or if you see any other condition that may affect the trimmerʼs
operation contact your local Black & Decker Service Center for repairs
before putting it back into use.
Fertilizers and other garden chemicals contain agents which greatly
accelerate the corrosion of metals. Do not store the unit on or adjacent
to fertilizers or chemicals.
With the battery removed, use only mild soap and a damp cloth to
clean the unit. Never let any liquid get inside the unit; never immerse
any part of the unit into a liquid. Prevent the blades from rusting by
applying a film of light machine oil after cleaning.
