SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire
and/or serious personal injury.
Work Area
• Keep your work area clean and well lit.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power
tools create sparks that may ignite the dust or fumes.
• Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical Safety
• A battery-operated tool with integral batteries or a separate battery pack must be recharged only with the specified charger for
the battery. A charger that may be suitable for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with another battery.
• Use a battery-operated tool only with specified battery pack. Use of any other batteries may create a risk of fire.
Personal Safety
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use tool while tired or
under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious
personal injury.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
• Avoid accidental start-ups. Make sure the switch is in the locked or off position before inserting battery pack. Carrying tools
with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or key that is left attached to a rotating part of the
tool may result in personal injury.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better control of the tool
in unexpected situations.
ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION.
A grass trimmer can throw foreign objects into your eyes, which could cause permanent eye damage.
ALWAYS wear safety goggles (not glasses). Ordinary eyeglasses have only impact-resistant lenses...
they are NOT safety goggles.
Tool Use and Care
• Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A tool that can not be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be
repaired.
• Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch in the locked or off position before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
• Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• 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 sparks, burns, or a fire.
• Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
• Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your tool. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool
may create a risk of injury when used on another tool.
Service
• Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by unqualified
personnel may result in a risk of injury.
• When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance section of this manual.
Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.

Grounding (Fig. A)
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides the path of least resistance for electric current, and reduces
the risk of electric shock.
This battery charger is double insulated
and has a two-pronged polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This
plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. DO NOT change the plug in any way. IN ALL cases, make sure the
outlet is properly grounded. If you are not sure, have a certified electrician check the power outlet.

Extension Cords (Fig. B)
Do not use an extension cord for the charger unless absolutely necessary. If you use an extension cord make sure the
cord is in good condition.
Use one heavy enough to carry the current your charger will draw. An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in line
voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating.The table below shows the correct size of extension cord to use,
depending on cord length and the charger's ampere rating listed on the nameplate. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
The smaller the gauge number is, the heavier the cord.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good condition. Always replace a damaged cord or have it repaired
by a qualified electrician. Protect your extension cord from sharp objects, excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electric circuit for your tools. Never use any other voltage or power source than common household 120 V
electrical power. The circuit must not beless than a #12 wire, and should be protected with a 15 A time-delayed fuse. Before
connecting the charger to the power line, make sure the electric current is rated the same as the current stamped on the
charger nameplate. To reduce the risk of disconnection of charger cordfrom the extension cord during operation, make a
knot (Fig. B).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Trimmer Tips
Before each use
• Make sure the protective guard is tightly installed.Tighten the guard screw.
• Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the charger is disconnected before using or storing the trimmer.
• Do not store the grass trimmer in sunlight, in an excessively warm place, or near a furnace. The battery life will be
shortened.
• If the battery must be stored in a warm place, charge it frequently.
• Before trimming, inspect the area for string, wire, branches or other material that may become entangled in the
cutting line and thrown.
During use
• Trim only when the grass and weeds are dry.
• Do not trim grass at night. Always make sure you have adequate lighting.
• Hold the grass trimmer by both the switch handle and the auxiliary handle for best control and balance.
• Stand with the cutting head tipped down at an angle in front, guiding the grass trimmer in a semicircular
motion around you.
• If possible, guide the grass trimmer to the left to cut.The line will cut as soon as it leaves the guard, and the
clippings are thrown away from you.
• To produce a smoothly trimmed area, move the grass trimmer in and out of the area being cut with consistent
speed and height.
• Use only the tip of the cutting line to do the trimming, especially near walls and fences. Trimming with the side of
the cutting line may overload the motor, wear out the line faster, and break the line more often.
• Do not rest the trimmer spool on the ground while trimming. This will cause spool wear and battery drain.
• If the grass is higher than 6” (15 cm), trim in small stages.
• When the grass trimmer is turned off and the spool stops rotating, the cutting line will relax and may recede. Feed
extra cutting line before storing the trimmer to prevent losing the line completely into the spool.
• If the diameter of the cutting area gets smaller, the line is worn down and needs to be advanced more often.
• If the grass trimmer is not cutting correctly, the cutting line may not be feeding properly. Remove and rewind the
line spool.
