Electrical and battery safety
Personal protective equipment
1.
During operation of the tool always wear goggles,
or a visor to prevent eye injuries.
Wear adequate noise protection equipment to
avoid hearing impairment (ear muffs , ear plugs
etc.).
6.
Always wear a helmet where there is a risk of
falling objects. The protective helmet is to be
checked at regular intervals for damage and is to
be replaced at least every five years. Use only
approved protective helmets.
The visor of the helmet (or alternatively goggles)
protects the face from flying debris and stones.
7.
3
Avoid dangerous environment. Don't use the tool
in damp or wet locations or expose it to rain. Water
entering the tool will increase the risk of electric
shock.
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.
Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
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.
Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, seek medical help. Liquid ejected
from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
Do not dispose of the battery(ies) in a fire. The cell
may explode. Check with local codes for possible
special disposal instructions.
Do not open or mutilate the battery(ies). Released
electrolyte is corrosive and may cause damage to
the eyes or skin. It may be toxic if swallowed.

Make sure that there are no children or other
people within a working range of 15 meters (50 ft),
also pay attention to any animals in the working
vicinity. Otherwise stop using the tool.
Before use always check that the tool is safe for
operation. Check the security of the cutting tool
and the guard and the switch trigger/lever for easy
and proper action. Check for clean and dry
handles and test the on/off function of the switch.
Check damaged parts before further use of the
tool. A guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will
operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and
any other condition that may affect its operation. A
guard or other part that is damaged should be
properly repaired or replaced by our authorized
service center unless indicated elsewhere in this
manual.
Switch on the motor only when hands and feet are
away from the cutting tool.
Before starting make sure that the cutting tool has
no contact with hard objects such as branches,
stones etc. as the cutting tool will revolve when
starting.

inspect the cutting tool.
Inspect the cutting blade at short regular intervals
for damage (detection of hairline cracks by means
of tapping-noise test).
Before commencing cutting, the cutting tool must
have reached full working speed.
Operate the tool only with the shoulder harness
attached which is to be suitably adjusted before
putting the tool into operation. It is essential to
adjust the shoulder harness according to the user
size to prevent fatigue occurring during use.
During operation always hold the tool with both
hands. Never hold the tool with one hand during
use. Always ensure a safe footing.
The cutting tool has to be equipped with the guard.
Never run the tool with damaged guards or without
guards in place!
All protective equipment such as guards and the
shoulder harness supplied with the tool must be
used during operation.
Never hit weeds or similar materials with the
cutting tool to cut them away.
Except in case of emergency, never drop or cast
the tool to the ground or this may severely damage
the tool.
Never drag the tool on the ground when moving
from place to place, the tool may become
damaged if moved in this manner.
Always remove the battery cartridge from the tool:
−
whenever leaving the tool unattended;
−
before clearing a blockage;
−
before checking, cleaning or working on the
tool;
−
whenever the tool starts vibrating abnormally.
Always ensure that the ventilation openings are
kept clear of debris.
Only use the tool in good light and visibility. During
the winter season beware of slippery or wet areas,
ice and snow (risk of slipping). Always ensure a
safe footing.
Take care against injury to feet and hands from the
cutting tool.
Never cut above waist height.
Never stand on a ladder and run the tool.
Never climb up into trees to perform cutting
operation with the tool.
Never work on unstable surfaces.
Remove sand, stones, nails etc. found within the
working range. Foreign particles may damage the
cutting tool and can cause dangerous kick-backs.
Should the cutting tool hit stones or other hard
objects, immediately switch off the motor and
When operating the tool, uncontrolled kickback
(blade thrust) may occur.

This is particularly the case when attempting to cut
within a blade segment between 12 and 2 o'clock.
Never apply the tool within a segment between 12
and 2 o'clock.
4.
9.
Never apply this segment of the cutter blade to
solids, such as bushes and trees, etc., having a
diameter in excess of 3 cm or the cutter blade will
be deflected at great force with the risk of injuries.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
Kickback prevention
WARNING:
To avoid kickbacks, observe the following:
1.
Operation within a blade segment between 12 and
2 o'clock presents positive hazards, especially
when using metal cutting tools.
DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product
(gained from repeated use) replace strict adherence
to safety rules for the subject product. MISUSE or
failure to follow the safety rules stated in this
instruction manual may cause serious personal
injury.

Before using battery cartridge, read all
instructions and cautionary markings on (1)
battery charger, (2) battery, and (3) product
using battery.
Do not disassemble battery cartridge.
If operating time has become excessively
shorter, stop operating immediately. It may
result in a risk of overheating, possible burns
and even an explosion.
If electrolyte gets into your eyes, rinse them
out with clear water and seek medical
attention right away. It may result in loss of
your eyesight.
Do not short the battery cartridge:
(1) Do not touch the terminals with any
conductive material.
(2) Avoid storing battery cartridge in a
container with other metal objects such as
nails, coins, etc.
(3) Do not expose battery cartridge to water
or rain.
A battery short can cause a large current
flow, overheating, possible burns and
even a breakdown.
Do not store the tool and battery cartridge in
locations where the temperature may reach or
exceed 50 ゚ C (122 ゚ F).
Do not incinerate the battery cartridge even if
it is severely damaged or is completely worn
out. The battery cartridge can explode in a fire.
Be careful not to drop or strike battery.
Do not use a damaged battery.

The nylon cutting head is a dual string trimmer head
provided with a bump & feed mechanism.
To cause the nylon cord to feed out, the cutting head
should be bumped against the ground while rotating at a
low RPM. As the nylon cord is feeding out it will
automatically be cut to the proper length by the cutters on
the guard extension.
Nylon cutting head (optional accessory for a
product that comes with a cutter blade)
NOTICE:
•
Do not attempt to bump feed the head while the tool
is operating at a high RPM. Bump feeding at a high
RPM may cause damage to the nylon cutting head.
•
The bump feed will not operate properly if the head
is not rotating.
