This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible
for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure

GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS

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 mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY
■■ Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
■■ 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.
■■ Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
■■ 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.
■■ 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.
■■ Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
■■ 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.
■■ 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.
■■ If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
■■ 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.
■■ 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.
■■ 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 energising power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
■■ 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.
■■ Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
■■ Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
■■ 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.
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
■■ 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.
■■ 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.
■■ Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
■■ 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.

Safety
■■ Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
■■ Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
■■ 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.
BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
■■ 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.
■■ Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
■■ 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 fire.
■■ Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally
occurs, flush with plenty of soap and water. If liquid
contacts eyes, immediately seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
SERVICE
■■ Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.
make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and
could give the operator an electric shock.
INTENDED USE
■■ This product is designed for home or domestic use. It
is intended to cut and trim hedges, shrubs and similar
vegetation.
■■ It should be used in dry, well illuminated conditions.
■■ It is NOT intended to cut grass, trees or branches. It
should not be used for any other purpose than hedge
trimming.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
PREPARATION
■■ Clear the area to be cut before each use. Remove all
objects such as cords, lights, wire, or string which can
become entangled in the cutting blade.
■■ Clear the area of children, bystanders and pets.
At a minimum, keep all children, bystanders and
pets outside a 15m radius; there still may be a risk to
bystanders from thrown objects. If you are approached,
stop the unit immediately.
■■ Do not operate in poor lighting. Use the unit only in
daylight or good artificial light.
■■ Inspect the unit before use. Replace any damaged

fastened. Failure to do so can result in personal injury
to the operator and bystanders, as well as damage to
the unit.
■■ Never attempt to use an incomplete machine or one
fitted with an unauthorised modification. If any parts
are missing, do not operate unit until the missing parts
are replaced.
OPERATION
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
■■ 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.
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. When transporting or storing
the hedge trimmer, always fit the cutting device
cover. Proper handling of the hedge trimmer will
reduce possible personal injury from the cutter blades.

■■ Do not use trimmer without front handle in place.
Keep both hands on handles when unit is in use.
■■ Before starting the unit, make sure the cutting
blades will not come in contact with anything.
■■ Keep unit clean of hedge clippings and other
materials. They may become lodged in the cutting
blades.
■■ If the machine strikes or becomes entangled with
foreign objects, stop the unit immediately, remove the
battery pack and check for damage. Do not operate the
unit with loose or damaged parts.
■■ Always be aware of your surroundings and stay
alert for possible hazards that you may not hear

■■ The vibration level during actual use of the power tool
Safety
can differ from the declared total value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. Identify safety
measures to protect yourself based on an estimation of
exposure in the actual conditions of use, taking account
of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times
when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle
in addition to the trigger time.
■■ It has been reported that vibrations from hand-held
tools may contribute to a condition called Raynaud’s
Syndrome in certain individuals. Symptoms may
include tingling, numbness and blanching of the fingers,
usually apparent upon exposure to cold. Hereditary
factors, exposure to cold and dampness, diet, smoking
and work practices are all thought to contribute to
the development of these symptoms. It is presently
unknown what, if any, vibrations or extent of exposure
may contribute to the condition. There are measures
that can be taken by the operator to possibly reduce the
effects of vibration:
a. Keep your body warm in cold weather. When
operating the unit wear gloves to keep the hands
and wrists warm. It is reported that cold weather is
a major factor contributing to Raynaud’s Syndrome.
b. After each period of operation, exercise to increase
blood circulation.
c. Take frequent work breaks. Limit the amount of
exposure per day.
If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition,
immediately discontinue use and see your physician
about these symptoms.
Read the operation manual and follow
all warnings and safety instructions.
Wear eye and hearing protection.
Thrown objects can ricochet and result
in personal injury or property damage.
Wear protective clothing and boots.
Wear non-slip, heavy duty gloves.
50' 15m
Keep all bystanders at least 15m away.
Do not expose to rain or damp
conditions.
Waste electrical products should not
be disposed of with household waste.
Please recycle where facilities exist.
