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 mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
2
1) Work area safety
a)Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b)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.
c)Keep children and bystanders
away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2)Electrical safety
a) 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.
b)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.
c)Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
d)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.
e)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.
f) 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.
3)Personal safety
a) 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.
b)Use personal protective equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions
will reduce personal injuries.
c)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.
d)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.
e)Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times. This
enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
f) 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.
g)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.

WG268E
4)Power tool use and care
a) 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.
b)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.
c)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.
d)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.
e)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.
f)Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
g)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.
5)Battery tool use and care
a) 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.
b)Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any
other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
c)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 a fire.
d)Under abusive conditions, liquid
may be ejected from the battery;
avoid contact. If contact accidentally
occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the
battery may cause irritation or burns.
6)Service
a) 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.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY
POINTS FOR YOUR HEDGE
TRIMMER
1.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.
2.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.
3.Hold the power tool by insulated
gripping surfaces only, because the
Cordless Hedge Trimmer
WG268E

cutter blade may contact hidden
wiring. Cutter blades contacting a “live”
wire may make exposed metal parts of
the power tool “live” and could give the
operator an electric shock.
4.Check the hedge for foreign objects,
e.g. wire fences.
5.Hold the hedge trimmer properly, e.g.
with both hands if two handles are
provided.

three sides, giving you many choices for a comfortable
grip. Before cutting an area, inspect it first and remove
any foreign objects that could become thrown or
entangled in the blades. Always hold the trimmer with
both hands and with the blade away from you before
turning it on.
When trimming new growth, use a wide sweeping
action so that the stems are fed directly into the blade.
(See Fig. H& I)
Allow the cutting blades to reach full speed before
cutting. When operating, keep the cutting blades away
from people and objects such as walls, large stones,
trees, vehicles, etc.
If the blade stalls, immediately stop the trimmer. Release
the two Switch Levers (5 & 2) before attempting to clear
jammed debris from the cutting blades.
Wear gloves when trimming thorny or prickly growth.
Do not attempt to cut stems that are too thick for the
cutting blade.
TOP CUTTING
Use a wide sweeping motion (See Fig. H). A slight
downward tilt of the cutting blades in the direction of
motion gives the best cutting results.
SIDE CUTTING
When trimming the sides of the hedge, begin at the
bottom and cut upwards (See Fig. I), tapering the hedge
inward at the top. This shape will expose more of the
hedge, resulting in a more uniformed growth.
9. CLEANING
REMOVE THE BATTERY PACK (3). Use a soft brush to
remove debris from all air intakes and cutting blade.
Wipe the surface with a dry cloth.
Warning: Never use water for cleaning your
trimmer. Do not clean with chemicals, including
petrol, or solvents as this may damage your trimmer.
LUBRICATING THE CUTTING BLADE
For easier operation and longer life, lubricate the cutting
blades before and after each use. Before lubricating,
make sure the battery is removed from the trimmer.
Apply oil between the two blades periodically (See Fig.
J).
AT THE END OF THE CUTTING SEASON
Clean your trimmer thoroughly.
Check that all nuts and bolts are secure.
Visually inspect the trimmer for any worn or damaged
parts.
TO STORE YOUR HEDGE TRIMMER
The trimmer blade cover/storage holder is provided with
2 hanging slots for storing the trimmer on the wall (See
Cordless Hedge Trimmer
WG268E
Fig. K) Ensure the blade cover/storage holder is fitted
before storage.
Store in a dry place where your trimmer can be
protected from damage.
