SAFETY RULES & PRECAUTIONS
e Pay attention to loosening and overheating of parts. If there 1s any abnormality of
the machine, stop operation immediately and check the machine carefully. If
necessary, have the machine serviced by a authorized dealer. Never continue to
operate a machine which may be malfunctioning.
e In start-up or during operation of the engine, never touch hot parts such as the
muffler, the high voltage wire or the spark plug.
e After the engine has stopped, the muffler 1s still hot. Never place the machine in
any places where there are flammable materials (dry grass, etc.), combustible gasses or
combustible liquids.
e Pay special attention to operation 1n the rain or just after the rain as the ground
may be slippery.
e If you slip or fall to the ground or into a hole, release the throttle lever immediately.
e Be careful not to drop the machine or hit it against obstacles.
e Before proceeding to adjust or repair the machine, be sure to stop the engine and
detach the spark plug cap from the spark plug.
e When the machine is placed in storage for a long time, drain fuel from the fuel tank
and carburetor, clean the parts, move the machine to a safe place and confirm that the
engine 1s cooled down.
e Make periodic inspections to assure safe and efficient operation. For a thorough
inspection of your machine, please contact a dealer.
e Keep the machine away from fire or sparks.
e It 1s believed that a condition called Raynaud's phenomenon, which affects the
fingers of certain individuals may be brought about by exposure to vibration and cold.
Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling and burning sensations followed by
loss of color and numbness in the fingers. The following precautions are strongly
recommended because the minimum exposure which might trigger the ailment 1s
unknown.
Keep your body warm, especially the head, neck, feet, ankles, hands and wrists.
Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous arm exercises during frequent
work breaks and also by not smoking.
Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill each day with jobs where operating the brush
cutter or other hand-held power equipment 1s not required.
If you experience discomfort, redness and swelling of the fingers followed by
whitening and loss of feeling, consult your physician before further exposing yourself
to cold and vibration.
e Always wear ear protection, as being exposed to loud noise for long time can result
in diminished hearing or even loss of hearing. Total face and head protection must be
worn to prevent bodily injury from either slipping or falling into
shrubbery,branches,or bushes.
e Wear no-slip heavy duty work gloves to improve your grip on the brush cutter
handle. Gloves also reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your hands.

WARNINGZN DANGER
The proper debris shield must be in place on
the unit when nylon cutting line is used. The
cutting line can flap around if too much line is
exposed. Always use the plastic debri shield
with cut-off knife when using nylon cutting
O heads.
For nearly all cutting, it is good to tilt the
line head so that contact is made on the
part of the line circle where the line 1s
moving away from you and the debris

TRIMMING:
This 1s feeding the trimmer carefully into the
material you wish to cut.Tilt the head slowly to
direct debris away from you. If cutting up to a
barrier such as fence, wallor tree,approach from
an angle where anydebris ricocheting off the
barrier will fly away from you.Move the line head
slowly until the grass 1s cut right up the barrier,
but do not jam(overfeed )the line into the barrier.
If trimming up to a wire mesh or chain linked
fence be careful to feed only up to wire. If you
go to far the line will snap off around the wire.
Trimming can be done to cut through weed
stems one at a time. Place the trimmer line head
near the bottom of the weed-never high up which
could cause the weed to chatter and catch the
line. Rather than cut the weed right through, just
use the very end of the line to wear through the
stem slowly.
WARNINGZN DANGER
Do not use a steel blade for edging or scalping.
SCALPING AND EDGING:
Both of these are done with the line head
tilted at a steep angle Scalping 1s removing
top growth leaving the earth bear.
Edging is trimming the grass back where it
has spread over a sidewalk or drive way.
During both edging and scalping, hold the
unit a steep angle and in a position where the
debris, and any dislodging dirt and stones,
will not come back towards you even if it
ricochets off the hard surface. Although the
picture shows how to edge and scalp every
oprator must find for himself the angles
which suits his body size and cutting
situation.

WARNING/\DANGER
Do not trim in any area where there are
strands of fencing wire. Wear protective
safety protecting, Do not cut where you
cannot see what the cutting device 1s cutting.

CUTTING WITH A BLADE
CUTTING WITH A BLADE
There are many different types of blades,
however the two most commonly used are
the following.
BRUSHBLADE is used for cutting brush
and weeds up to 3/4" in diameter. Only
CG420-2 255mm 3-blade can be used in
this type of brush cutter.

7
WARNING/N DANGER
Do not cut with dull, cracked or damaged
metal blade.
Before cutting growth, inspect for obstructions
such as boulders, metal stakes or strands of
wire from broken fences. If an obstruction
cannot be removed, mark its location so that
you can avoid it with the blade. Rocks and
metal will dull or damage a blade. Wires can
catch on the blade head and flap around or be
thrown into the air.
Blade thrust is the reaction which may occur
when the spinning blade contacts anything it
cannot cut. This contact may cause the blade to
stop for an instant ,and suddenly "thrust" the
unit away from the object that was hit. This
reaction can be violent enough to cause the
operator to lose control of the unit.Blade thrust
may occur without warning 1f the blade snags
,stalls or binds. This 1s more likely to occur in
areas where it is difficult to see the material
being cut.For cutting ease and safely,approach
the weeds being cut from the right to the left,in
the event that an unexpected object or woody
stock 1s encountered,this could minimise the
blade thrust reaction.
CUTTING WITH A BLADE
~
J
SCYTHING WEEDS. This 1s cutting by swinging the
blade in a level arc. It can quickly clear areas of field
grass and weeds. Scything should not be used to cut
large, tough weeds or woody growths.
NOTE
