Should you
experience symptoms of headache and
nausea associated with exhaust fumes,
STOP the engine immediately.
•
When using the hedge-trimmer the
operator is responsible for the safety of
persons or objects that lie within the
working area.
• Two-stroke petrol is highly inflammable.
Before refuelling always stop engine, do
not smoke and make sure the area is
well ventilated and free from any
external flame or sparks. Wipe any
fuel spilt immediately.
Two-stroke petrol can burn or irritate
skin. Change clothing immediately if
fuel is spilt on it. Never remove fuel

HEDGE-TRIMMER
ƒ
Damaged or loose parts including
blades can cause injury to the
operator or bystanders.
Always
inspect the hedge-trimmer before
using. Only use genuine approved
spare parts for repair. Unauthorised
use of non-genuine spare parts may
invalidate warranty and could cause
injury.
ƒ
Check the position and safety of all
guards, handles, controls are free
from defect..
ƒ
Store hedge-trimmer in a safe, dry,
cool area and away from direct
sunlight. For prolonged periods of
storage, drain fuel tank and run
carburettor dry before storing your
hedge-trimmer.
ƒ
Careful maintenance is essential for
safety and optimum performance.
Regularly check the hedge-trimmer
adjustments and replace worn or
damaged parts. If engine idle speed
is set too high, cutting blades will not
stop when the operator releases the
throttle. To prevent injury, ensure
idle speed is set correctly and blades
do not turn when engine is idling.
Replace or sharpen worn, dull or
misadjusted cutting blades.
FUEL MIXTURE: 25 : 1
Use fresh, unleaded petrol and mix
synthetic two-stroke oil specially made for
high performance two-stroke engines at a
ratio of 25 parts petrol to 1 part of oil.
Using synthetic oil will reduce the
formation of ash and carbon deposits on
the spark plug, piston, combustion
chamber, muffler, as well as extending
engine life and reducing harmful exhaust
gasses.
It is important to use only good quality
fresh two-stroke mixture, which should
be disregarded after four weeks.
WARNING
Two-stroke mixture gasoline is highly
flammable and can explode under
certain circumstances. Never overfill
petrol tank so that fuel rises into the
filler neck. Heat may cause fuel to
expand and overflow through vents in
the tank cap. After refuelling make
sure petrol cap is securely closed. If
two-stroke mixture is spilt on engine or
tank, wipe clean immediately.
ENGINE STARTING
To start the engine proceed as follows:1. Ensure fuel tank is filled with
correctly mixed fresh two-stroke
mixture at a ratio of 25-1.
2. Switch ignition switch to on position.
3. Prime the carburettor by slowly
pushing the priming button several
times until fuel reaches the
carburettor.
4. Push the choke lever to the closed
position.
5. Squeeze throttle control trigger and
depress orange throttle lock button.
6. With your left hand grip the throttle
control handle and with your right
hand firmly pull recoil starter four or
five times, or until the engine starts.
Fuel Filter
7.

8.
To avoid damage to recoil starter, do
not pull recoil rope its entire length
and do not let go of rope when it is
fully extended, as this may cause
injury and damage to the recoil
mechanism.
9. Allow sufficient warm up time to
maximise engine performance before
load is applied.
10. Never touch the muffler, spark plug,
or other metallic parts of engine
while the engine is in operation, or
immediately after shutting down the
engine. Doing so may result in
serious burns.
ƒ
