Operation Instructions
Read the entire Important Safety Instructions section at the beginning of this manual including all text
under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.
Blade Lever
1. The Blade Lever allows the operator to
change the closeness setting of the cut
without an additional attachment comb.
2. At the top position, the blades will give the closest
cut and leave the hair the shortest. Pushing the
Lever downward increases the cutting length.
3. If hair jams the blades, switch the Blade Lever
up and down rapidly to clear the blades.

7. Hold the Clippers cutting edge up, and
begin the haircut starting at the middle of
the base of the neck (see Figure B).
1. The Comb’s sizes are marked on the outside
middle surface. To attach a Comb, hold it
with the teeth upwards and slide it onto and
along the Blades until the front of the comb
is seated firmly against the Blades.
2. For good visibility and easy access, seat the
person getting their hair cut with their head
at eye level of the person cutting the hair.
3. Comb hair free of tangles and
arrange in style desired.
4. WARNING: Do not use Clippers on soaking
wet hair. Towel dried hair is acceptable.
5. Place a towel around the neck and shoulders
of the person getting the haircut.
5. Attach Comb #1 or #2 (See Figure A).
Figure B
8. With the Comb teeth pointed upwards, lift the
Clippers upwards and outwards through the
hair, trimming a small amount at a time.
9. As you cut, lift the Clippers head towards you
while continuing to cut the back area from the
bottom of the neck to the top of the ears.
10. Change to Comb #3 or #4 and, working
upwards, cut the hair on the back and
top of the head (see Figure C).
Figure A
6. Dry hair is more easily controlled.
• Cut hair slowly and with short strokes.
Figure C
• Only cut a little hair at a time, as more
can be trimmed later if necessary.
• Frequently comb hair back into the intended style.

Item 61517
11. Using Comb #3 or #4, cut hair on top of head
from back to front, against the direction in which
the hair normally grows. In some cases, this may
require changing direction (see Figure D).
14. Use the taper level without an attachment
comb for close trimming around the base and
side of the neck, and around the ears.
15. To cut the sideburns, change Comb to #1 or
#2. To produce a clean, straight line for the
sideburns, reverse the Clippers by turning
the bottom side upwards (see Figure F).
Figure D
12. Comb #1 or #2 can be used to
achieve very close “crew” cuts.
13. For longer hair, use the provided Comb to lift the hair
away from the top of the head. Cut over the comb
with the hair lifted to desired length (see Figure E).
Figure F
16. Press the Clippers at a right angle to the head, with
the tips of the blades lightly touching the skin and
work downwards to obtain a clean, razor-like cut.
17. Comb through hair to check for uneven
strands and ensure an even cut.
Figure E
Short tapered styles
1. Starting with Comb #4, cut from the back of the
head to the top of the head. Hold the attachment
comb flat against the head and slowly move the
Clippers through the hair (see Figure G).
2. Use the same procedure from the lower side of the
head to the upper side of the head (as illustrated).
3. Cut the hair against the direction in which it
grows, from the front to the top of the head,
and then level the cut with the sides.
4. To create a “flat top” look, the hair must
be cut over the top of a flat comb rather
than with an attachment Comb.
5. Use the closer cutting attachments to taper
the hair down to the neckline, as desired.
Figure G
After Cutting
Clean and Lubricate the Clippers after each use.
3. Add a few drops of oil to the blades.
1. Before turning the Clippers off, rapidly slide the
Blade Lever from close cut to longer cut twice.
This will clear trimmings from the Clippers.
Caution: Do not use hair oil, grease, or any type of
solvent on the Clippers. The solvent will evaporate and
leave a residue that can slow down the blade’s motion.
2. Use the Brush to clean any trimming
remnants from the Clippers.
4. Turn the Clippers on for a few moments to
distribute the oil and to make sure it runs
smoothly. Then, turn the Clippers off.
WARNING: Do not rinse Clippers. Risk of electric shock.
Item 61517
5. Wipe off excess oil.
