effective.
S Avoid running the battery into full discharge, i.e. avoid draining the battery completely.
S Follow the procedure outlined in the
CHARGING YOUR UNIT section.
S Recharging the battery according to these
instructions should ensure maximum battery life.
S Do not recharge the battery in an area of extreme heat or cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
After approximately 5 seconds, the line will be
cut to the correct length by the line limiter pin
as the motor reaches full speed. Make sure
the motor is up to full speed before trimming. If the noise of the cutting line being cut
cannot be heard, more line will need to be fed
out.
To feed more line:
S Allow the motor to stop completely; then, restart the motor and allow it to reach full
speed.
S Repeat until you hear the line hitting against
the line limiter pin (do not repeat this procedure more than 6 times).
If problems are experienced with the automatic line feed, refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING TABLE.

EDGING
While edging, allow unit to rest on wheel for
extra stability. Edge in direction shown in illustration. Allow the tip of the line to make contact. Do not force the line. Take extra caution
while edging as objects can be thrown from
the trimmer line.
1. Keep all areas of the cap and hub clean.
Failure to do so may prevent the cap being securely located in the hub.
2. Replace the cap, pressing firmly down towards the hub to ensure cap is fully secured.
3. Check that the cap is secure by trying to
remove it without pressing the two
latches.
WARNING: Use only 0.065 inch (1.65
mm) diameter line. Other sizes of line will not advance properly and will result in improper cutting
head function or can cause serious injury. Do
not use other materials such as wire, string,
rope, etc. Wire can break off during cutting and
become a dangerous missile that can cause serious injury. See page 3 for warning concerning
other cutting devices.
TRIMMING
Hold the bottom of the trimmer head about 3
inches (8 cm) above the ground and at an angle. Allow only the tip of the line to make contact. Do not force trimmer line into work area.
