B. Safety precautions
• This machine can cause serious injuries if
not used in the correct manner.
• If using the face shield, ensure you peel off the
protective films from the see-through plastic.
• Ensure all operators study this manual carefully and thoroughly before using the hedge
trimmer.
• Be familiar with all controls and the proper use
of this machine.
• As with all machinery, long hair, loose belts or
straps should be tied back or secured to avoid
possible contact or entanglement with moving
parts.
• Wear close-fitting protective clothes. Wear
safety shoes, gloves, goggles and ear protectors. Ensure you know how to stop the engine
in an emergency. Start the engine according
to these instructions.
• Stop the engine when changing location or
before examining the blades.
• Prolonged use of this or other machines
exposing the operator to vibration may produce Whitefinger’s Disease (Raynaud’s
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Phenomenon). This may reduce the hands’
ability to feel and regulate temperature and
may produce general numbness. Continual or
regular users should therefore monitor closely
the condition of their hands or fingers. If any of
the symptoms appear, seek immediate medical advice.
Do not operate this machine when tired or
under the influence of any substances such as
drugs or alcohol which can impair vision, dexterity or judgement.
Carefully survey the working site to note any
hazards (eg road, paths, electricity cables,
dangerous trees, etc).
Ensure other persons are at a safe working
distance (minimum distance of 10 metres).
If necessary use warning signs to keep
onlookers at a safe distance.
Ensure someone is nearby within a safe hearing distance in case of an accident.
When transporting or storing the machine
always fit the blade sheath
Never allow children to use this machine
C . Additional safety precautions
• Always hold the hedgetrimmer firmly with both
hands when the engine is running.
• Always maintain a firm foothold. Do not use
while standing on a ladder. Use properly
installed scaffolding to reach high places.
• Keep handles dry, clean and free from fuel
mixture.
• If fuel has spilt on unit, ensure engine has
dried completely before starting.
• Keep all parts of your body and clothing away
from blades when starting or running engine.
• When transporting the hedgetrimmer in a vehicle, secure it to prevent fuel spillage.
D. Fuel mix
Do not use any other type of fuel than the type
recommended in this manual.
This product is equipped with a two-stroke
engine and must therefore use a mixture of
lead-free gasoline (with a minimum of 90
octanes) and fully synthetic oil for two-stroke
engines, specific for lead-free gasoline in the
proportions indicated in the table on the cover
page at item (D).
IMPORTANT! Read the oil specifications on
the can carefully: the use of oil lacking the
specifications indicated in this manual can
cause severe damage to the engine!
To obtain the best mixture, pour the oil first, followed by the gasoline, into an approved container, shake well (repeat the operation every time
you draw any fuel from the container).
The characteristics of the mixture are subject to
ENGLISH - 2
aging and may be altered in time, so we recommend mixing only the amount strictly needed for
use. If you use a mixture that is several weeks
old, this could damage the engine.
WARNING
Do not smoke when re-fuelling.
Always open the fuel cap slowly, to release any
pressure build up in the tank.
Re-fuel in open spaces only, keeping away from
naked flames or sparks.
SAFE STORAGE OF FUEL
Petrol fuel mix is highly inflammable.
Put out all cigarettes, pipes and cigars before
working with fuel.
Avoid spilling fuel. Store fuel in a cool, well ventilated place, in an approved container specifically
designed for the purpose.
Never store engine with fuel in the tank in
enclosed, poorly ventilated areas where fuel
fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot
light such as in a furnace, water heater, clothes
dryer etc. Petrol fumes can cause an explosion or
a fire. Never store large amounts of fuel.
To prevent possible restarting problems avoid
running the fuel tank dry.
This also helps to extend engine life.
E. Starting and stopping the engine
Starting a cold engine
1 Move stop switch to on position. Depress the
primer bulb 5 times.
2 Move choke lever to
position.
3 Pull starter rope until engine fires once.

4 Move choke lever to /2 position.
5 Pull starter rope until engine fires. Allow
engine to warm up for 15 seconds.
6 Move choke lever to

7 To stop engine, push stop switch to stop
position.
If the engine fails to start repeat the above procedure.
Starting a warm engine
1 Stop switch to on position.
2 Depress the primer bulb 5 times if the fuel
tank has run empty.
3 Ensure the choke is on
position.
4 Pull starter handle until engine runs. Allow
engine to run for 15 seconds.
5 If the engine fails to start repeat points 4, 5
and 6 for ‘Starting a cold engine.’
F. Cutting instructions
• If unfamiliar with trimming or cutting techniques, practice the procedure with engine in
‘Off’ position.
• Clear work area of debris such as cans, bottles, rocks etc. Striking objects can cause serious injury to operator, bystanders and equipment. If an object is hit accidentally, immediately turn off engine and examine equipment.
• Always hold unit firmly with both hands,
thumbs and fingers encircling handles.
• Always trim or cut at high engine speeds. Do
not run engine slowly at start or during cutting
operations.
• Do not use this unit for purposes other than
trimming shrubs, hedges or bushes.
• Never raise hedgetrimmer above chest height
during operation.
• Do not operate unit with other people or animals in the immediate vicinity.
• Always ensure the handle and guard is fitted in
place when using the machine. Never attempt
to use an incomplete machine or one which
has been modified by anyone other than an
authorised service dealer.
Using your hedgetrimmer
• Your hedgetrimmer is equipped with a centrifugal clutch so the cutting blades will stop
moving when the engine is at idle. If the
blades move when the engine is at idle, the
carburettor idle speed needs adjusting. If this
does not solve the problem, do not use the
hedgetrimmer - take it immediately to an
Authorised Service Agent.
• Always allow the engine to idle before moving
from one section of the bush or hedge to
another. Wait until blades stop moving. Before
resuming trimming, check that your stance is
correct.
• Always be sure of your footing. Do not overreach.
• Do not use hedgetrimmer while standing on a
ladder or other unstable surfaces. If trimming
tall hedges or bushes, use scaffolding which is
stable and secure.
• Do not operate the machine if the blades are
damaged or excessively worn.
• To reduce any fire hazard keep the engine and
muffler free of debris, leaves or excessive lubricant.
Trimming Procedures
WARNING: Wear heavy duty gloves when operating this unit.
There are two trimming procedures: Horizontal A
and Vertical B.
• The horizontal trimming position is used to cut
the top of bushes, shrubs or hedges. Always
trim from right to left. Do not use hedgetrimmer above chest height.
• The vertical trimming procedure is used to cut
the sides of bushes, shrubs and hedges.
Always cut from bottom to top.
1 Place right hand on rear handle assembly and
left hand on the front handle.
2 Trim area to be cut whilst squeezing throttle
trigger to maximum extent. When finished
release throttle trigger. Allow engine to return
to idle position. Blade action should stop.
Move to next section to be cut.
3 After moving to the next section, make sure
you are standing on firm ground, squeeze trigger to full extent and resume trimming.
ENGLISH - 3
G. Carburettor adjustment
Your machine is fitted with a highly sensitive
low emission carburettor. We therefore recommend that carburettor adjustments are only
made by an authorised servicing dealer,
equipped with instruments that will ensure
best performance with lowest emission levels.
To adjust the idle speed, however, proceed as follows:
With engine running and warm, slowly turn screw
‘I’ clockwise until the engine runs smoothly with a
consistent noise level but without making the
blade move.
If the cutting attachment does move or the engine
runs too fast, slowly turn screw ‘I’ in an anticlockwise direction until the correct speed is obtained.
Precise numerical engine speed settings are mentioned in the technical detail chart in the front of
the operator’s manual.
Warranty may be invalidated from incorrect
carburettor adjustment made by persons
other than an authorised dealer.
H. Regular maintenance
Every 10 work hours
1 Air filter cleaning
Never operate hedgetrimmer without the air filter, this will damage the engine.
• Remove the 2 air cleaner cover screws.
• Take off the air cleaner cover and remove air
filter from the back of the cover.
• Clean air filter in warm soapy water. DO NOT
USE PETROL.
• Allow filter to dry.
• Re-install filter.
Note: replace filter if torn or damaged.
2 Remove spark plug
• Clean and adjust electrodes setting.
Every 50 work hours
3 Change spark plug
Long storage
• Empty fuel tank and run engine dry.
