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 mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.

Save these instructions

Work area

• 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.

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, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.

• Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.

• 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 jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.

• If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities ensure that these are connected and properly used. Use of these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.

Additional safety rules for petrol line trimmers

• Do not operate in a hazardous location. Such areas include where there is a risk of explosion of petrol fumes, leaking gas or explosive dust.

• Do not operate in a confined area. Exhaust gases, smoke or fumes could reach dangerous concentrations.

• Protect your tool. This line trimmer is NOT WEATHERPROOF and should not be exposed to direct sunlight, high ambient temperature and damp, wet or high humidity conditions.

• Do not smoke while refuelling. This is potentially dangerous as it may ignite the fuel and cause an explosion.

• Take care not to spill fuel. When refuelling the line trimmer ensure that the motor has been switched off. Prevent the spilling of fuel as this may also ignite with the hot motor. Never refuel whilst the engine running.

• Be careful where you store the line trimmer. Store the line trimmer in a dry area away from flammable liquids.

• Keep your distance. The line trimmer emits exhaust fumes. Ensure bystanders keep a safe distance.

• Ensure you use oil-mix fuel. Ensure that you mix 40 parts unleaded fuel to 1 part 2-stroke oil. If not, the engine will overheat and cause damage to your line trimmer. Do not use ethanol fuel (E10). Use fresh 91 Octane unleaded petrol.

• Use good quality air cooled 2-stroke engine oil.

• Never fill fuel tank indoors. Never fill fuel tank when engine is running or hot.

Mixing the fuel

MOTOR FUEL: MIX AT 40:1 ONLY

For example: For 1 litre of unleaded petrol add 25ml of oil.

For 5 Litres of unleaded petrol add 125ml of oil.

IMPORTANT. Use good quality air cooled 2-stroke engine oil.

This product is powered by a 2-stroke engine and requires pre-mixing fuel with 2-stroke oil.

1. Use fresh unleaded petrol. Do not use ethanol fuel (E10). Use fresh 91 Octane unleaded petrol. You must use 2-stroke oil specifically made for heavily stressed two-stroke engines.

2. Mix the petrol and oil in an approved container. Never mix fuel directly in the line trimmer fuel tank. Use the fuel mixing bottle included with this product.

40:1

Note. Mixing has been made easy by including markings on the container included. For example, if unleaded fuel is filled to the ‘400’ mark in the “GAS” column of the container, place oil in the container until it reaches the next mark

(in the 40:1 OIL markings of the container). Therefore, 400ml of fuel would mean

10ml of oil must be added.

WARNING. Never use any type of pre-mixed fuel/oil direct from fuel stations.

This may include special blends intended for use in mopeds, motorcycles, etc.

3. Mix the fuel thoroughly and also each time before fuelling.

4. Always pre-mix in small quantities. Never mix quantities larger than what will be used in a 30-day period.

Note. The mixing bottle provided is NOT for the storage of fuel. This container is solely for mixing of fuel only.

Ensure to keep this container in a safe storage location, empty of fuel and out of reach of children.

Instructions

Running in the engine

1. During the first 2–3 hours of work, run the engine at a moderate RPM.

2. We advise you in any case not to maintain your engine at a high speed as the different components must settle with each other during the process of running in the engine.

3. It is at the end of the running in period that the engine will reach its maximum power.

4. After the first two hours of work, stop and make sure that all nuts and screws are securely fastened, and tighten them if necessary.

Use of the petrol line trimmer

This petrol line trimmer is only made to cut grass.

• Always use the shoulder strap (17), when using the line trimmer to avoid serious personal injury.

• Perform a few accelerations of the motor without reaching maximum speed and without working to make sure that everything is in good working order.

• Start the engine only when you are close to the working area.

• Place yourself in a well balanced position, stable on both feet.

Operating the line trimmer

IMPORTANT. Petrol line trimmers transmit vibrations to the operator during use. These vibrations can generate increased fatigue. For this reason, we recommend taking regular breaks during work. We also recommend taking a break after a few hours of work to rest the engine. If abnormal noise or vibration occurs during operation, turn the line trimmer off immediately and have the problem corrected.

1. Keep a firm grip on the line trimmer with both hands while in operation.

The line trimmer should be held at a comfortable position with the rear handle about hip height.

2. Always operate the line trimmer at full throttle. Cut tall grass from the top down to prevent grass from wrapping around the spool which may cause the line trimmer to overheat.

1800 909 909 www.globalpowerbrands.com email: [email protected] 43670

Instructions

Note. If grass becomes wrapped around the spool, stop the engine, disconnect the spark plug wire, and remove the grass.

Note. Prolonged cutting not at full throttle may result in oil dripping from the muffler.

Feeding the line

WARNING. The engine of the petrol line trimmer must be at a complete stop during assembling, repair and cleaning operations that could be necessary.

The line trimmer has a bump feed mechanism which releases the line without having to stop the engine.

1. To release additional line, lightly tap the bump knob (18) on the ground while operating the unit at high speed.

Note. Always keep the line fully extended. Line release becomes more difficult as the cutting line becomes shorter.

2. Each time the head is bumped it releases approximately 2cm of line. Release the line until it strikes the cut off knife (2). This may require several taps.

Note. The cut off knife (2) on the safety guard (3) will automatically cut off any excess line. For best results tap the head on hard soil or bare ground. Never bump the spool head on concrete as it may crack the spool housing.

IMPORTANT. Do not hit stones (even small ones), piles of earth, and small pieces of wood or anything else that could be hidden or poorly visible in the grass. If you hit a large object by accident, or if you block the cutting tool due to overloading or having the cutter jammed with grass, you must stop the engine.

Note. All protective devices of the machine as well as protective equipment must be maintained in good operation condition during the period of use.

Note. If the line is too short you may not be able to advance the line by tapping it on the ground. If this is the case, stop the engine and manually advance the line.

Advancing the line manually

1. Push the bump knob in while pulling on both lines to manually advance the line.

2. Release the bump knob and again pull on both lines to advance the line further.

3. If the line still does not advance remove the spool and check the lay of the line.

It may be twisted or trapped under over laying line.

Tips for cutting

WARNING. Beware of bystanders at all times

• Cut the grass like you are in a corridor about 1.5m wide. Move step by step, moving the machine from left to right and vice-versa. Make sure at each step that you are still well balanced on your feet

• Keep the line trimmer tilted towards the area being cut

• Let the tip of the line do the cutting. Never force the spool into uncut grass.

• Running the line into fences, stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood causes extra line wear, even breakage.

Replacement of the cutting line

1. Stop the engine.

2. Put the petrol line trimmer on the floor in a way that the cutting line and spool assembly (1) is facing up.

3. Open the cutting line and spool assembly (1) by holding the spool housing firmly while rotating the bump knob anti-clockwise.

4. Remove the bump knob completely and remove the spool from the spool shaft.

Discard any short lengths of remaining cutting line.

5. Take a 4 metre length of Ø2mm line and halve it.

6. Place the half way mark of the line into the notch in the spool.

7. Wrap the line around the inside of the spool in an anti clockwise direction (following the directional arrows on the spool). Ensure the line is wrapped tightly and neatly.

8. When there is approximately 150mm of line left, lock one of the lines into one of the line location notches in the spool head and the other into the opposing notch.

• Protect all metal engine parts from corrosion by coating them with oil.

• Remove the spark plug, put a few drops of oil into the cylinder and then pull the recoil starter 2 to 3 times in order to distribute the oil evenly. Replace the spark plug.
