The lines will automatically elongate every time you turn on the appliance. To support proper line elongation, ensure that the coil has stopped moving completely before turning on the appliance again.

The lines are automatically cut to the correct length by the line cutter.

ii. Fold the plant protector in for storage.

WARNING!

Adjust the plant protector position only when the product is switched off and the cutting device is at a complete stop!

OPERATE

Tips

i. For best results, do not cut wet grass because it tends to stick to the cutting head and guard, prevents proper discharge of grass trimmings, and could cause you to slip and fall.

ii. Do not allow the spool cover to drag on the ground or other surfaces.

iii. Pay special attention when performing the work close to trees and bushes. The cutting head could damage sensitive bark, and damage fence posts.

iv. Fold the plant protector out to avoid bringing the cutting device into contact with hard objects such as walls and curbstones.

NOTE:

The trimming line will wear faster and require more feeding if the cutting or edging is done along sidewalks or other abrasive surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut.
