1. The battery pack supplied with your cordless hedge
trimmer is only partially charged. The battery pack has to
be charged completely before you use the tool for the first
2. For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge
cycles by charging the battery pack frequently.
3. Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 77°F
(25°C) and charged to at least 40%.
3. Electrical plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
grounded appliances. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
4. Lithium-ion batteries are subject to a natural aging
process. The battery pack must be replaced at the latest
when its capacity falls to just 80% of its capacity when
new. Weakened cells in an aged battery pack are no
longer capable of meeting the high power requirements
needed for the proper operation of your hedge trimmer,
and therefore pose a safety risk.
4. Keep the battery charger, battery pack(s) and the cordless
tool out of the reach of children.
5. Do not use the supplied battery charger to charge other
cordless tools.
6. During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become

charging times. These charging times only apply to
discharged batteries. Frequent insertion of a charged or
partially charged battery pack will result in overcharging
and cell damage. Do not leave batteries in the charger for
days on end.
7. Do not exhaustively discharge batteries. Exhaustive
discharge will damage the battery cells. The most
common cause of exhaustive discharge is lengthy storage
or non-use of partially discharged batteries. Stop working
as soon as the performance of the battery falls noticeably
or the electronic protection system triggers. Place
the battery pack in storage only after it has been fully
8. Never use or charge batteries if you suspect that it has
been more than 12 months since the last time they were
charged. There is a high probability that the battery pack
has already suffered dangerous damage (exhaustive
8. Protect batteries and the tool from overloads. Overloads
will quickly result in overheating and cell damage inside
the battery housing even if this overheating is not
apparent externally.
9. Charging batteries at a temperature below 50°F (10°C) will
cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a fire.
9. Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries
that have been dropped from a height of more than one
meter or those that have been exposed to violent shocks,
even if the housing of the battery pack appears to be
undamaged. The battery cells inside the battery may have
suffered serious damage. In such instances, please read
the waste disposal information for proper battery disposal.
10. Do not use batteries that have been exposed to heat
during the charging process, as the battery cells may have
suffered dangerous damage.
11. Do not use batteries that have suffered curvature or
deformation during the charging process or those that
exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing,
cracking, etc.)
10. If the battery pack suffers overloading and overheating,
the integrated protective cutoff will switch off the

Cutting Procedures
mWARNING! Never cut near electric cords or power
lines. If the blade jams on any electrical cable, DO NOT
AND FATALLY SHOCK YOU! Instead, continue to hold the
hedge trimmer by the insulated rear handle, and lay it down
and away from you in a safe manner. Make sure that electrical
service to the damaged electrical cable is disconnected
before attempting to free the hedge trimmer blade. Contact
with the blade, other conductive parts of the hedge trimmer,
or live electric cords or power lines will result in death by
electrocution or serious injury.
mWARNING! Clear the area to be cut before each use.
Remove all objects such as cords, lights, wire, or loose string
which can become entangled in the cutting blade and create a
risk of electric shock and serious personal injury.
1. When trimming new growth, use a wide sweeping action
so that the stems are fed directly into the blade. Do not try
to cut branches that are thicker than 0.62 in. (1.6 cm) or
those that are obviously too large to feed into the blade.
Use lopping shears, a hand saw, or a pruning saw to cut
out thick branches first. If a substantial cut is necessary,
cut a little at a time in several passes. Cut both sides of
the hedge first and then the top.
Care + Maintenance

or maintenance, remove the battery from the battery
compartment. Never touch the moving blades.
