Safety Warnings
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in all of the warnings listed below 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. Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
2. Electrical safety
A. 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.
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. 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. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a supply protected by a residual

current device (RCD) in AUS or a ground fault
interrupt (GFI) in the USA. Use of an RCD or GFI
reduces the risk of electric shock.
3. Personal safety
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. 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 tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
D. Remove 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
E. 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.
G. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices
can reduce dust-related hazards.
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
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.

exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give
the operator an electric shock.
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
E. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
Sound Pressure
This unit has a measured sound pressure level at the operator’s
ear of 76 dBA, with an uncertainty value (K) of 3.0 dBA.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
Sound Power
This unit has a measured sound power level of 93.7 dBA, and a
guaranteed sound power level of 96 dBA.
G. Use the power tool, accessories and 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
Hand/Arm Vibration
The unit vibration level does not exceed 2.5 m/s2, with an
uncertainty value (K) of 1.5 m/s2.
5. Battery tool use and care
A. 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.
Important: The vibration emission during actual use of the
power tool can differ from the declared total value depending
on the way the tool is used. The operator should take safety
measures based on an estimation of exposure in the actual
conditions of use.
B. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
C. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
the 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.
D. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
E. Charging time will be increased if the battery is charged
when the temperature is not between 41 to 104 degrees
F (5 to 40 degrees C).
6. Service
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

blades are moving. Make sure the switch is off when
clearing jammed material. Blades coast after turn off. A
moment of inattention while operating the hedge trimmer may
result in serious personal injury.
Carry the hedge trimmer by the handle with the cutter
blade stopped. Proper handling of the hedge trimmer will
reduce possible personal injury from the cutter blades.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
because the cutter blade may contact hidden wiring or its
own cord. Cutter blades contacting a “live” wire may make

Operating Tips.
The unit is used for cutting in either direction in a slow,
sweeping action from side to side.
Stand so that you are stable and balanced on both feet. Do
not overreach.
Oiling the Trimmer Blade
Note: The trimmer blade should be oiled before and after each
Inspect and clear the area of any hidden objects.
1. Stop the motor and remove the battery.
Never use the hedge trimmer near power lines, fencing,
posts, buildings, or other immovable objects.
2. Clean dirt and debris from the body of the hedge trimmer,
using a damp cloth with a mild detergent.
Never use a blade after hitting a hard object without first
inspecting it for damage. Do not use if any damage is
Never touch blades or service unit with the power supply
Do not force the hedge trimmer through heavy shrubbery.
This can cause the blades to bind and slow down. If the
blades slow down, reduce the pace.
Do not attempt to cut stems or twigs that are larger than .71
inches (18 mm), or those obviously too large to feed into the
cutting blade. Use a hand saw or pruning saw to trim large
If blades do become jammed, stop the motor, allow the blades
to stop, and remove the battery before attempting to remove
the obstruction.
If desired, you can use a string to help cut your hedge level.
Decide how high you want the hedge. Stretch a piece of
string along the hedge at the desired height. Trim the hedge
just above the guide line of string.
Trim the side of a hedge so that it will be slightly narrower at
the top. More of the hedge will be exposed when shaped this
way, and it will be more uniform.
Wear gloves when trimming thorny or prickly growth. When
trimming new growth, use a wide sweeping action, so that the
stems are fed directly into the cutting blade.
Note: Do not use any strong detergents on the plastic
housing or the handle. They can be damaged by certain
aromatic oils such as pine and lemon, and by solvents such
as kerosene.
3. Lay the hedge trimmer on a flat surface. Apply light weight
machine oil along the edge of the top blade. If you will be
using the hedge trimmer for an extended period of time, it is
advisable to oil the blade during use.
Note: Do not oil while the hedge trimmer is running.
