Symbols are used in this manual to attract your attention to possible risks. The safety symbols and the explications which accompany them must be perfectly understood. The warning themselves do not prevent the risks and can not be a substitute for proper methods of avoiding accidents.


Please read all of the safety and operating instructions carefully before using this tool.

Please pay particular attention to all sections of this User Guide that carry warning symbols and notices.

This symbol, before a safety comment, indicates a precaution, a warning or a danger.

Ignoring this warning can lead to an accident for yourself or for others. To limit the risk of injury, fire, or electrocution always apply the recommendations indicated.

Conforms to relevant safety standards.

This symbol indicates the necessity to wear protective glasses, ear protector and protect shoe when using the product.

Do not work in the rain or leave the chain saw outdoors

Keep other people out of the dangerous area.

Remove battery before adjusting or cleaning, and before leaving the machine unattended for any period.


Recycle unwanted materials instead of disposing of them as waste. All tools, hoses and packaging should be sorted, taken to the local recycling centre and disposed of in an environmentally safe way.


WARNING! Read all safety warnings and instructions.

Failing to follow the warnings and instructions can result in an electric shock, a fire and/or a serious injury.

Keep all warnings and all instructions to be able to refer to them later on.

The term “tool” in the warnings refers to your electrical mains powered tool (with power cord) or your battery operated tool (without power cord).


– Safety of the work area

a) Keep the work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents. b) Do not operate electric tools in explosive atmospheres, for example in the

presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Electric tools create sparks that can ignite the dust or fumes. c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating the tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control of the tool.


– Electrical safety

a) The electric tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way.

Do not use adapters with earthed (grounded) tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock. b) Avoid any body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes,

radiators, cookers and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded. c) Do not expose tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a tool will increase the risk of electrical shock. d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the

tool. Keep the cord away from heat, lubricants, edges and moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock. e) When using a tool outside, use an extension cable suitable for outside use. Use of a cord suitable for outside 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.


– Personal safety

a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating the

tool. Do not use the tool when you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol

or medication. One moment of carelessness while using a tool can result in serious personal injury. b) Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as dust masks, non-slip safety shoes, a hard hat and hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries. c) Avoid unintentional starting. Make sure that the switch is in the off position

before plugging the tool into the mains and/or fitting the batteries, picking it up or

carrying it. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in tools with the switch in the on position is a cause of accidents.


d) Remove any adjustment key before operating the tool. A key left attached to a rotating part of the tool can result in personal injury. e) Do not overreach. Keep a proper position and balance at all times. This enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations. f) Dress in a suitable manner. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep hair,

clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothing, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts. g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection

equipment, make sure that they are connected and used correctly. Using dust collectors can reduce the dust-related risks.


– Use and maintenance of the tool

a) Do not force the tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the work better and safer in the conditions for which it was manufactured. b) Do not use the tool if the switch does not make it possible to change from the

operating condition to stop and vice versa. Any tool which cannot be controlled by the switch is dangerous and should be repaired. c) Disconnect the power cord before any adjustment, changing an accessory or

before storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally. d) Keep idle tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar

with the tool or these instructions to operate it. Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users. e) Maintain the tool. Check that there is no misalignment or obstruction of the

moving parts, broken parts or any other condition that could affect the operation of

the tool. In the event of damage, have the tool repaired before using it. Many accidents are due to badly maintained tools. f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control. g) Use the tool, accessories and blades etc., in accordance with these instructions,

while taking into account the work conditions and the work to be done. The use of the tool for operations other than those intended could result in dangerous situations.


– Maintenance and service

a) Have the tool serviced by qualified repair personnel using only identical

replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the tool is maintained.

Noise/Vibration Information

Measured sound values determined according to EN 60745.

Wear hearing protection!

Vibration total values (triax vector sum) determined according to EN 60745:

The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with another.

It may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.

The declared vibration emission level represents the main applications of the tool.

However if the tool is used for different applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level over the total working period.

An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times when the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the total working period.

Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator from the effects of vibration such as: maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.

Operating Instructions

This cordless hedge trimmer is designed exclusively for cutting garden hedges in your private domestic gardens. Please note that this tool is not designed for commercial, trade or industrial use. Only use this product for the purpose specified in these instructions. Any other use will void the guarantee.

For Your Safety:

Warning! Personal Injury and Damage!

Keep your hands and feet away from the cutting tool, especially when the products are switched on! Never switch on the product while you are adjusting the handle.

Remove battery before adjusting or cleaning, and before leaving the machine unattended for any period. Caution! Do not touch the moving blades.

Important ! Any use, which is not expressly permitted in the manual, may result in damage to the machine and place the user in serious danger. Please carefully read the restrictions in the safety instructions.

Important ! Before each use, check for damaged/worn parts, especially check the blade for proper alignment.

In order to take full advantage of the battery capacity, you should not switch the machine on and off unnecessarily.

Cutting hedge

Before cutting, check the hedge for foreign objects e.g. wire.

When using the tool hold it away from yourself and stand in a secure position with your weight evenly balanced over both feet.

Cuts stems up to 14 mm in thickness. When cutting, move steadily along the line of cut, so that stems are fed directly into the cutter blades. The double edge cutting blade enables cutting in either direction, or with a side to side motion.

Cut the sides of the hedge first, then the top.

To keep the sides flat, cutting upwards with the growth is recommended. Younger stems tend to move outwards when cutting them from top to bottom, resulting in shallow patches or holes in the hedge.

To reach a level finish, fasten a piece of string along the length of the hedge at the required height and use as an alignment guide. Cut the hedge just above the string.

After use, replace the blade transport guard.



Blades can cause injury. Before any work on the machine itself, remove

battery from machine.

Note: To ensure long and reliable service, regularly carry out the following maintenance:

Check for obvious defects such as loose, dislodged or damaged blade, loose fixings and worn or dam-aged components.

Check that covers and guards are undamaged and correctly fitted. Carry out necessary maintenance or repairs before using.

If the hedge cutter should happen to fail despite the care taken in manufacturing and testing, repair should be carried out by an authorized customer service agent .

Blade Maintenance

Blades can cause injury. Before any work on the machine itself, remove
