Inspect electrical cables – The insulation of the power cord should be perfectly intact. If the power cord is damaged or shows any signs of cracks, do not use the trimmer. Contact your authorized Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® dealer or call the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE (1-866-766-9563). 4. To prevent electric shock, use only with an extension cord suitable for outdoor use, such as SW-A, SOW-A, STW-A, STOW-A, SJW-A, SJOW-A, SJTW-A, or SJTOW-A. mCAUTION! The trimmer line spool will continue to rotate after turning the trimmer OFF. Wait until the trimmer line spool has completely stopped before making contact. • Only use the same type of line originally provided with the tool. Before use, check that the extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, make sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. For lengths less than 50 ft (15 m), a No.16 AWG (or greater) extension cord should be used. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. m • Do not use the unit to cut grass that is not in contact with the ground. WARNING m Electric shock may cause SEVERE INJURY or DEATH. Heed these warnings: • Do not switch the grass trimmer ON in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces or in the presence of flammable and/or explosive substances such as liquids, gases, and powders. • The user of the trimmer is responsible for any damage sustained by third parties that has been caused by the grass trimmer within the working area. • Do not allow any part of the electric grass trimmer to make contact with water while it is in operation. If the appliance becomes wet while turned off, wipe dry before starting. • Only cut during broad daylight or with adequate artificial light. • Use only a UL-, CSA-, or ETL-rated extension cord for outdoor, all-weather use. • Do not cross roads or gravel paths while the unit is still running. • Do not use an extension cord over 100 ft (30 m). • Do not touch the appliance or its plug with wet hands or while standing in water. Wearing rubber boots offers some protection. • When the trimmer is not in use, store it in a dry place and out of the reach of children. • The trimmer must be operated in a vertical position, perpendicular to the ground. EXTENSION CORD CHART • Check regularly that all screws are properly secured. Electrical Safety 1. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection should be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for this electric grass trimmer. Receptacles are available having built-in GFCI protection and may be used for this measure of safety.

Do not use other sources of power. 2. Make sure that the mains voltage matches that listed on the unit's rating label. Using the improper voltage can damage the motor and injure the user. • Never pass the grass trimmer over the extension cord when the grass trimmer is in use as this could cut the cord. Make sure you know where the cord is at all times. 3. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (i.e. one blade is wider than the other). Use this appliance only with a polarized UL-, CSA- or ETLlisted extension cord recommended for outdoor, all-weather use. Extension Cord Length • Never use the tool when it is raining or when excessively moist and humid conditions are present. Do not cut damp grass or leave the tool outside overnight. • The power supply cable should be checked regularly to make sure it is perfectly intact without any signs of wear or damage. If the cable is not in good condition, do not use the unit. The appliance plug will fit into a polarized extension cord only one way. If the appliance plug does not fit fully into the extension cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, obtain a correct polarized extension cord. A polarized extension cord will require the use of a polarized wall outlet. The extension cord plug will fit into the polarized wall outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the wall outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper wall outlet. Do not modify the appliance plug, extension cord receptacle, or extension cord plug in any way. • Only use an extension cable that is rated for outdoor use. Keep the extension cord away from the cutting area, sharp edges, heat, fuels, damp areas, and oily surfaces. • Damage to unit – If the trimmer strikes a foreign object or becomes entangled with it, stop the tool immediately. Unplug it, check for damage, and have any damage repaired before proceeding with operation. Do not operate the tool with a broken spool cover or spool. Contact 2 your authorized Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® dealer or call the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE (1-866-766-9563). • Damage to cord – Keep power cord away from the rotating line. If you damage the cord, unplug it from the power supply before moving the tool or examining the damage. A damaged cord must be replaced before further use. • Do not operate portable electric tools in gaseous or explosive atmospheres – Motors in these tools normally spark, and the sparks might ignite fumes. • Maintain appliances with care – Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if damaged. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.

The grass trimmer should be held at a comfortable position with the handle about hip height. 1. To prevent the grass trimmer appliance cord and extension cord from disconnecting during use, tie the extension cord into a loose knot around the lower bar of the handle as shown (Fig. 6). • Wear non-slip gloves for maximum grip and protection. • For the best cutting action against walls, fences, and in high grass, move the grass trimmer slowly so grass is cut with the tip of the high speed nylon line. 2. Connect the extension cord to the appliance cord. Fig. 6 • Avoid dragging the grass trimmer and string spool cover in contact with the ground. • Trim only when grass and weeds are dry. NOTE: As the weather becomes cooler, the tendency for the nylon line to break becomes greater. DO NOT USE WHEN TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 50ºF (10ºC). • Cut tall grass from top down. This will prevent grass from wrapping around the shaft housing and string head which may cause damage from overheating. Extension Cord • If grass becomes wrapped around the string head: – Stop the trimmer. – Unplug the trimmer. – Remove the grass. Appliance Cord mWARNING!

Let the motor come to a complete stop before resuming operation. Do not rapidly switch the trimmer off and on. • The life of your nylon line is dependent upon following instructions for proper use, as well as what is being cut, and where the cutting is being done. mCAUTION! Always wear eye protection. mWARNING! Remove stones, loose pieces of wood, and other objects from the cutting area. The string continues to rotate for a few seconds after switching off the trimmer. Let the motor come to a complete stop before resuming operation. Do not rapidly switch the trimmer off and on. 7 mCAUTION! Always wear eye protection. Maintenance 1. For best cutting performance, hold the trimmer at an angle of approximately 10 – 30 degrees to the work area (Fig. 8). Advancing Strings NOTE: Your trimmer uses 0.063 in. (1.6 mm) diameter nylon line to cut grass and weeds quickly and easily. In order to feed a length of cutting line, strike the bump cap on the lawn while the trimmer is running. This will automatically feed a new length of line and trim it to the correct length. A firm but gentle motion should be used to strike the bump cap. The trimmer should be angled slightly forward to prevent the guard from contacting the ground. This process may be repeated as often as necessary. If the trimmer fails to feed, unplug the extension cord from the trimmer and clean out the bump cap. Fig. 8 mWARNING! Do not operate the grass trimmer in a tree, on a ladder, or on a scaffold; this is extremely dangerous. Replacing the Spool + Clearing Jams and Tangled Lines 10° – 30° mWARNING! Unplug the extension cord from the mains power plug before changing the trimmer line. 2. Slowly swing the trimmer from side to side (Fig. 9). 1. Turn the spool cover counter-clockwise to unlock and remove it along with the spool from the cutting head (Figs. 11 – 12). Fig. 9 NOTE: The cutting line is wound under tension and can be difficult to handle. Fig. 11 Spool 3. Do not overload your trimmer; instead, take small “bites” of grass, working from the top to the bottom. This will keep the machine operating at high speed and will greatly improve its cutting efficiency (Fig. 10). Spool cover Fig. 10 Fig. 12 Spool Spool cover Spring 8 Winding the Line 2. Remove any broken cutting line, wind the remaining line tight and re-insert the spool into the spool cover as follows (Figs 13 – 15): NOTE: A dual-line factory wound spool (model TRJ607E-RS6PK) is available for easy spool replacement on the TRJ607E electric grass trimmer. Visit snowjoe.com to purchase this accessory online. Should you wish to wind the line yourself, the instructions are provided below. Self-winding, however, is NOT recommended because if the line is not wound properly it can cause the trimmer’s bump feed system to malfunction. For this reason, users are strongly urged to purchase the pre-wound spool. a. Wind the line tight enough so that it is all below the edge of the flange on the spool. If it extends past the flange, it won't fit into the spool cover. Leave yourself 3 or 4 inches of line to work with. b. Make sure that the two free ends of line are secured in the opposite gaps on the spool flange. c. While holding the ends in the gaps insert them through the eyelets and slip the spool into the cover. Press gently to ensure the spool is seated. 1. Unplug the grass trimmer. 2. To replace the line on a spool, follow these steps (Fig. 16): d. Pull straight out on the ends of the cutting line to release them from the gaps. a. Use approximately 12 ft. (3.7 m) of 0.063 in. (1.6 mm) replacement line. Loop the line into 2 equal lengths and insert the middle of the line into the groove in the center of the spool. e. Replace the cover on the cutting head and lock into place by turning clockwise. Fig. 13 Eyelet b. Wind the line tightly around the spool according to the direction of the arrow on the spool. Tightly wind it until there is about 6 in. (15.24 cm) of the line left. Spool cover c. Lock each end of the line into opposite gaps on the spool flange. Spool Fig. 16 Spring Gaps on flange Fig. 14 Groove Spool cover 3. Wind both ends into the grooves using slight tension and following the direction of the arrows (Fig. 17). Fig. 17 Spool Fig. 15 Eyelet Spool 4. Re-install the spool as instructed in steps 2a to 2e of "Replacing the Spool + Clearing Jams and Tangled Lines". Spool cover 9 mCAUTION! Catapulted pieces of nylon line may cause injury. NOTE: The maximum recommended length of line in the spool is 12 ft (3.7 m), with 6.6 ft (2 m) per slot. mWARNING! Pay attention to the winding direction. NOTE: Always replace the spool with a new pre-wound spool. Visit snowjoe.com to purchase the pre-wound spool (model TRJ607E-RS-6PK) for this electric grass trimmer. IMPORTANT: Keep all areas of the cutting head and cutting head cover clean. Place the cap back by pushing it firmly onto the cutting head. To ensure that the cutting head cover is correctly fitted, try to remove it without depressing the two latches. If it is correctly fitted, it should not move. Storage Follow these recommendations for storing the trimmer. • Clean the trimmer thoroughly before storing. • Store the trimmer in a stable and safe position out of the reach of children. Keep the trimmer in a dry place where the temperature is not too hot or too cold. • When storing the trimmer, do not rest it against the floor. Hang it by the upper handgrip so that the guard does not touch anything. If the guard rests against a surface, its shape and dimensions could be permanently altered, and could render the machine unsafe to use.
