CAUTION: Carefully read this entire Instruction Manual before using your new Power
Tool. Take special care to heed the Cautions and Warnings. Your power tool has many features
that will make your job faster and easier. Safety, performance, and dependability have been
given top priority in the development of this tool, making it easy to maintain and operate.
Environmental protection
Recycle unwanted materials instead of disposing of them as waste. All tools,
hoses and packaging should be sorted, taken to the local recycling center and
disposed of in an environmentally safe way.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power tool”
in all of the warnings below refers to your battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
Work area
Save These Instructions
• Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
• 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.
• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
Electrical safety
• Power tool or tool accessory plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way.
Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) tools. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
• Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
• Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk of electric shock.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the adapter
charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled
cords increase the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
• 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.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as a dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hardhat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
• Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before transporting. Carrying
power tools with your finger on the switch invites accidents.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of
the power tool in unexpected situations.
• 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.

POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
• 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.
• 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.
• Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
• Store idle power tools out of the reach of children. 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.
• Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
• Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in accordance with these instructions and
in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool, taking into account the working
conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Tips For Using Your Blower
The following points may assist you in the
operation of the blower.
• Always try to blow dry leaves, cuttings or general garden debris, wet material is difficult to move.
• If the leaves etc. are damp, then use the blower to pile the leaves etc. into one area for collection.

the tool. When you have finished using the blower, always check to make sure the product is
clean and free of dirt and debris. Do not use solvents to clean the blower. Store the blower in a

2. Insert the battery into the charging stand. The red light on the charging stand should appear
indicating that the battery is charging.
3. The battery charge time is approximately 3–5 hours, after which the battery pack (4) should be
removed. A good indication for a fully charged battery is the temperature of the pack,
which becomes warm as the battery becomes fully charged.
• After normal use, 3 hours of charging time is required for the battery pack to be fully charged.
However, 4–5 hours charging will ensure a longer run time of your tool.
• Batteries should be placed on charge only when they are no longer able to perform a task
they were previously could.
• If your battery delivers abnormal performance, discharge the battery by holding the trigger
in the ‘on’ position until the fan starts to slow. Do not completely discharge the battery.
Remove the battery from the tool and allow it to cool, and then charge it for 5 hours,
do not exceed this charge time.
• Unplug the adaptor charger when not in use and store it in a dry, secure place.
• Avoid charging your battery in temperatures below 0°C and above 40°C.
• Always remove the battery pack and store it in a dry, secure place when the
blower is not in use.
• Battery charging should only be carried out indoors.
• Use only spare parts and accessories recommended by the manufacturer.
• Do not try to repair the tool or access internal parts. Contact authorized service centers only.
• Do not get distracted and always concentrate on what you are doing. Use common sense.
Never operate the tool when you are tired, sick or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
• Keep a balanced and stable stance while using the tool.

WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Do not allow any liquid to come into contact
with the battery charger. Always use the battery charger indoors and store in a dry location.
To allow the battery pack to cool down after charging, do not place it in a hot environment
such as a metal shed or open trailer left in the sun.
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.
The charger and battery packs supplied with it are specifically designed to work together.
Do not attempt to charge the battery pack with any other charger than the one supplied.
Do not place any object on top of the charger as it could cause overheating. Do not place the
charger near any heat source.
Do not pull on the lead of the charger to disconnect it from the power source.
Make sure that the charger cable is positioned where it will not be stepped on, tripped over or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. The use of an improper
extension cord could cause the risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
Do not use the charger if it has been subjected to a heavy knock, dropped or otherwise
damaged in any way. Take the charger to an authorized service center for a check or repair.
Do not disassemble the charger. Take it to an authorized service center when service or repair
is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in the risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
To reduce the risk of an electric shock, unplug the charger from the power supply before
attempting to clean it. Removing the battery alone does not reduce the risk.
Never attempt to connect two chargers together.
Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may reach or
exceed 104°F (40°C) such as alongside sheds or metal structures in the summer.
The charger is designed for use from a standard household electrical supply (120V ~ 60Hz).
Do not attempt to connect the charger to a supply with a different supply.
If you wish to charge a second battery pack, unplug the charger from the main supply and
leave it for at least 15 minutes. After this time you can charge a second battery pack.
