CALIFORNIA
Proposition 65 Warning
This product contains a chemical or chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer,
birth defects, or reproductive harm.
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
C. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
D. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
E. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
F.
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in all of the warnings listed below refers
to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) power tool.
1. Work area safety
A. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents
B. Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
C. Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
2. Electrical safety
A. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
B. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and

If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a supply protected by a residual
current device (RCD) in AUS or a ground fault
interrupt (GFI) in the USA. Use of an RCD or GFI
reduces the risk of electric shock.
3. Personal safety
A. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating power tools may result
in serious personal injury.
B. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
C. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
D. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to
a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal
injury.
E. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.

6. Service
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair
can be caught in moving parts.
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
G. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices
can reduce dust-related hazards.
Hedge Trimmer Safety Warnings
• Use both hands when operating the hedge trimmer.
Using one hand could cause loss of control and result
in serious personal injury.
4. Power tool use and care
•
Keep all parts of the body away from the cutter blade. Do
not remove cut material or hold material to be cut when
blades are moving. Make sure the switch is off when
clearing jammed material. Blades coast after turn off. A
moment of inattention while operating the hedge trimmer may
result in serious personal injury.
•
C. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
Carry the hedge trimmer by the handle with the cutter
blade stopped. Proper handling of the hedge trimmer will
reduce possible personal injury from the cutter blades.
•
D. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
users.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
because the cutter blade may contact hidden wiring or its
own cord. Cutter blades contacting a “live” wire may make
exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give
the operator an electric shock.
•
DANGER – Keep hands away from blade. Contact with
blade will result in serious personal injury.
A. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power
tool for your application. The correct power tool will
do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
B. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
The device should not be used by persons ( including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they receive supervision or
training.
E. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
F.
Children should be supervised to not use the appliance as a toy.
If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, its authorized service agent, or a similarly qualified
person in order to avoid hazard.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
G. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.
in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to
be performed.. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
5. Battery tool use and care
A. Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type
of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
B. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
C. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
the other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
D. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
E. Charging time will be increased if the battery is charged
when the temperature is not between 41 to 104 degrees
F (5 to 40 degrees C).

Operating Tips

2
•
The unit is used for cutting in either direction in a slow,
sweeping action from side to side.
•
Stand so that you are stable and balanced on both feet. Do
not overreach.
•
•
Inspect and clear the area of any hidden objects.

G016223
Figure 6
1. LED indicators (level of
charge)
•
Never use a blade after hitting a hard object without first
inspecting it for damage. Do not use if any damage is
detected.
•
•
Never touch blades or service unit with the battery connected.
Do not attempt to cut stems or twigs that are larger than .71
inches (18 mm), or those obviously too large to feed into the
cutting blade. Use a hand saw or pruning saw to trim large
stems.
•
If blades do become jammed, stop the motor, allow the blades
to stop, and remove the battery before attempting to remove
the obstruction.
•
If desired, you can use a string to help cut your hedge level.
Decide how high you want the hedge. Stretch a piece of
string along the hedge at the desired height. Trim the hedge
just above the guide line of string.
•
Trim the side of a hedge so that it will be slightly narrower at
the top. More of the hedge will be exposed when shaped this
way, and it will be more uniform.
•
Wear gloves when trimming thorny or prickly growth. When
trimming new growth, use a wide sweeping action, so that the
stems are fed directly into the cutting blade.
2. Slide the battery into the charger until it clicks into place.
3. To remove the battery, press down on the release button
and slide the battery backwards out of the charger.
4. Refer to the table below to interpret the LED indicators on
the battery charger.

Never use the hedge trimmer near power lines, fencing,
posts, buildings, or other immovable objects.
Maintenance
Oiling the Trimmer Blade
Note: The trimmer blade should be oiled before and after
each use.
1. Stop the motor and remove the battery.
2. Clean dirt and debris from the body of the hedge trimmer,
using a damp cloth with a mild detergent.
Note: Do not use any strong detergents on the plastic
housing or the handle. They can be damaged by certain
aromatic oils such as pine and lemon, and by solvents
such as kerosene.
3. Lay the hedge trimmer on a flat surface. Apply light weight
machine oil along the edge of the top blade. If you will be
using the hedge trimmer for an extended period of time, it is
advisable to oil the blade during use.
Note: Do not oil while the hedge trimmer is running.
Preparing the Battery Pack for
Recycling
WARNING
Before recycling, cover the battery pack's terminals
with heavy-duty adhesive tape. Do not attempt to
destroy or disassemble the battery pack or remove
any of its components. Lithium-ion batteries must be
recycled or disposed of properly at the nearest battery
recycling facility.

Storage
•
•
Clean all foreign material from the product.
•
Keep away from corrosive agents such as garden chemicals
and de-icing salts.

Troubleshooting
Using the battery when it is hot can reduce the operating time.
The battery will automatically stop working when it is overheated
to prevent damage to it. Remove the battery from the charger and
allow it to cool before placing it back into the trimmer.
Using the battery when there is moisture on the leads can cause
the trimmer to malfunction. Allow the battery to dry or wipe it dry
before placing it back into the trimmer.
