chemical burn if mistreated. Replace
battery with (WORX) only. Use of
another battery may present a risk of
fire or explosion
6) WARNING: Do not use a visibly
damaged battery pack or appliance
as applicable.
7) WARNING: Do not modify or attempt
to repair the appliance or the battery
pack as applicable.
8) BATTERY MUST BE RECYCLED.
9) Do not short-circuit a cell or battery. Do
not store cells or batteries haphazardly

LINE FEEDING/WINDING
INSTRUCTION
14
1. Automatic line feed system
When initially switching on the trimmer, a small
length of line is fed out. Each time the tool is started
from rest it will advance about 0.25 inches of trimmer
line.
A ‘clattering’ noise will be heard when the lines hit
the Line Cutter. DO NOT BE ALARMED. This is quite
normal. After about 5 seconds the line will be cut to
the correct length and the noise will reduce as the
motor gains full speed.
If the noise of the line being cut can’t be heard, more
line will need to be fed out.
To feed more line, it is first necessary to allow the
trimmer to stop completely; it must come to a
complete rest, then restart, allowing the motor to
reach full speed.
Repeat above until you hear the line hitting against
the Line Cutter.
much line is fed out, remove the Spool Cap and turn
Spool counter-clockwise until the line is at the desired
length.
4. Manually winding the line
( See Fig. O1, O2, O3, O4)
Take approximately 10ft (3m) of line. Insert 5/8 inch
(15mm) of line into the Spool holes and wind line in
the direction of the arrows on the top of the Spool.
Leave approximately 4 inches (100mm) of line
unwound and place into the cleat. Ensure that the
line is neatly coiled on the Spool. Failure to do so will
impair the efficiency of the automatic line feed. Then
fit the Spool as shown in Fig. N1, N2, N3
MAINTENANCE
After use, disconnect the battery from the tool and
check for damage.
Your power tool requires no additional lubrication
or maintenance. There are no user serviceable parts
in your power tool. Never use water or chemical
cleaners to clean your power tool. Wipe clean with
a dry cloth. Always store your power tool in a dry
place, and out of the reach of children. Keep the
motor ventilation slots clean. Keep all working
controls free of dust.
For Battery tools
The ambient temperature range for the use and
storage of tool and battery is 0oC-45oC.
The recommended ambient temperature range for
the charging system during charging is 0oC-40oC.
TM
(See Fig. L)
2.
Your trimmer is equipped with a Command Feed
System. For efficiently feeding the line, just press the
command feed button while the machine is running
until you hear the ‘clattering’ noise of the line cutting.
The motor will shut off when pressing the Command
Feed button and will restart when releasing
the button. During that process the line will
automatically feed additional line for cutting.
3. Manually feeding the line (See Fig. M)
Turn off the trimmer and remove the battery. If
required, line can be fed out manually. To operate,
press and release manual Line Feed Button, while
gently pulling out the line until it is long enough
to reach the Line Cutter. If the line extends past the
Line Cutter, too much line has been fed out. If too
