During Operation
Your power tool is equipped with a
system designed to quickly stop the
cutting blades – they come to an
immediate standstill as soon as you
release the trigger switch and/or the
front switch lever.
Check this function at regular short
intervals. To reduce the risk of injury,
do not operate your power tool if the
cutting blades continue to run. Contact
your servicing dealer.
Take special care in slippery conditions
– damp, snow, ice, on slopes or uneven
ground.
HSE 41, HSE 51
English
Clear away fallen branches, scrub and
cuttings.
–
Remove stones, rocks, pieces of
metal and other solid objects.
Avoid damage to the power supply cord.
Do not drive over it, pinch or tug it.
Watch out for obstacles: Roots, tree
stumps or holes which could cause you
to trip or stumble.
–
When working close to the ground,
make sure that no sand, grit or
stones get between the blades.
Position the connecting and extension
cords correctly:
When working at heights:
–
Take particular care when cutting
hedges next to or against wire
fences.
–
Always use a lift bucket
–
Never work on a ladder or in a tree
–
Never work on an insecure support
Be particularly alert and cautious when
wearing hearing protection because
your ability to hear warnings (shouts,
alarms, etc.) is restricted.
To reduce the risk of accidents, take a
break in good time to avoid tiredness or
exhaustion.
Work calmly and carefully – in daylight
conditions and only when visibility is
good. Stay alert so as not to endanger
others.
The gearbox becomes hot during
operation. To reduce the risk of burn
injury, do not touch the gear housing.
If your power tool is subjected to
unusually high loads for which it was not
designed (e.g. heavy impact or a fall),
always check that it is in good condition
before continuing work – see also
"Before Starting Work". Make sure the
safety devices are working properly. Do
not continue operating your power tool if
it is damaged. In case of doubt, have the
machine checked by your servicing
dealer.
Inspect the hedge and work area to
avoid damaging the cutting blades:
HSE 41, HSE 51
To avoid the risk of electrocution, do
not touch electric power lines – never cut
through electric power lines.
Do not touch the cutting
blades while the motor is
running. If the cutting
blades become jammed
by thick branches or
other obstructions, switch
off immediately and disconnect the plug from the
power supply before
attempting to free the
blades.
If the hedge is very dusty or dirty, spray
the blades with STIHL resin solvent from
time to time during cutting. This helps
reduce blade friction as well as the
aggressive effects of sap and the buildup of dirt particles.
The dust that occurs during operation
may be harmful to health. If dust levels
are very high, wear a suitable respirator.
If the connecting cord is
damaged, immediately
disconnect the plug from
the power supply to avoid
the risk of
electrocution.
Never jerk the connecting cord to
disconnect it from the wall outlet. To
unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
–
Do not chafe on edges, pointed or
sharp objects
–
Do not squeeze through gaps in
doors or windows
–
If cords are twisted – unplug the
power tool and straighten them out
–
Never touch the cutting attachment
–
Always unwind the extension cord
completely from the cable drum to
reduce the risk of fire from
overheating.
Before leaving the power tool
unattended: Switch off the power tool
and unplug it from the power supply.
Check the cutting blades at regular short
intervals during operation or
immediately if there is a noticeable
change in cutting behavior:
–
Switch off the motor, wait for the
cutting blades to come to a
standstill, disconnect plug from
power supply.
–
Check condition and tightness, look
for cracks.
–
Check sharpness.
Always switch off the power tool and
unplug it from the power supply before
replacing the cutting blades. This avoids
the risk of injury from the motor starting
unintentionally.
To reduce the risk of fire, always clean
plant residue, chips, leaves and excess
lubricant off the motor.

English
After Finishing Work
Maintenance and Repairs
Always clean dust and dirt off the
machine – do not use any grease
solvents for this purpose.
Always switch off the machine and
disconnect the plug from the power
supply before carrying out any
maintenance work to reduce the risk of
injury from the motor starting
unintentionally.
Spray the blades with STIHL resin
solvent. Run the motor briefly so that the
solvent is evenly distributed.
Vibrations
Prolonged use of the power tool may
result in vibration-induced circulation
problems in the hands ("white finger
disease").
No general recommendation can be
given for the length of usage because it
depends on several factors.
The period of usage is prolonged by:
–
Hand protection (wearing warm
gloves)
–
Work breaks
The period of usage is shortened by:
–
Any personal tendency to suffer
from poor circulation (symptoms:
frequently cold fingers, tingling
sensation)
–
Low outside temperatures
–
Amount of gripping force (holding
the power tool tightly restricts
circulation)
Users who use the machine periodically
or for long periods or users who
repeatedly experience corresponding
symptoms (e.g., tingling sensation in
fingers), should undergo a medical
examination.
6
Service the machine regularly. Do not
attempt any maintenance or repair work
not described in the instruction manual.
Have all other work performed by a
servicing dealer.

General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
This chapter reproduces the preformulated, general safety
precautions specified in the
EN 60745 European standard for
hand-held motor-operated electric
tools. STIHL is required by law to
print these standardized texts
verbatim.
Read all safety warnings and
instructions. Failure to follow the
warnings and instructions may
result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury.
2) Electrical safety
3) Personal safety
a)
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) 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.
c)
Save all warnings and instructions
for future reference.
The term "power tool" in the warnings
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)
18
Keep children and bystanders
away while operating a power
tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
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.
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)
f)
When operating a power tool
outdoors, use an extension cord
suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord extension suitable for outdoor
use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
If operating a power tool in a
damp location is unavoidable,
use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of an
RCD reduces the risk of electric
shock.
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
power tool. Carrying power tools
with your finger on the switch or
energising power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
d) Removing 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.
HSE 41, HSE 51
English
f)
Dress properly. Do not wear
loose clothing or jewellery. Keep
your hair, clothing and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for
connection of dust extraction
and -collection facilities, ensure
these are connected and properly
used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
e)
f)
4) Power tool use and care
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.
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.
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.
HSE 41, HSE 51
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.
–
Carry the hedge trimmer by the
handle with the cutter blade
stopped. When transporting or
storing the hedge trimmer always
fit the cutting device cover.
Proper handling of the hedge
trimmer will reduce possible
personal injury from the cutter
blades.
–
Always hold your electric power
tool by the insulated handles
because the cutting blades may
contact hidden electrical wires or
your own power cord. Any blade
contact with a live wire may
energize metallic parts of the power
tool and result in an electric shock.
–
Keep the power cord away from
cutting area. During operation the
power cord may be hidden in shrubs
and can be accidentally severed by
the blade.
Keep cutting attachments sharp
and clean. Properly maintained
cutting attachments with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories,
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) Service
a)
is off when clearing jammed
material. A moment of inattention
while operating the hedge trimmer
may result in serious personal
injury.
Have your electric power tool
serviced by a qualified repair
person using only original
replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
Hedge Trimmer Safety Warnings
–
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
