This booklet summarizes the detailed
instructions relating to safety and
working technique contained in the
individual instruction manuals for STIHL
cleaning systems. With the aid of this
booklet, even long-standing users of a
cleaning system can familiarize
themselves – in their own best interests
– with the latest findings for working
safely with a cleaning system.
Note that the illustrations in the chapter
"Main parts" show the high-pressure
cleaners RE 107, RE 117,
RE 127 PLUS, RE 521, RE 551 PLUS
