Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining your machine



■ Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference.

■ Read the instructions carefully. Be familiar with the controls and the proper use of the equipment.

■ Never allow children or people unfamiliar with these instructions to use the hedge trimmer. Local regulations can restrict the age of the operator.

■ Never use the machine while people, especially children, or pets are nearby. Keep in mind that the operator or user is responsible for accidents or hazards occurring to other people or their property.

■ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

■ Don’t use the appliance without reading the instruction manual.

■ Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

Work area safety

Keep the work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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.

AFTER SALES SUPPORT 0345 605 2067 5


Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining your machine

■ Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.

Distractions can cause you to lose control.

Electrical safety

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 the 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 power tool.

Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.

■ 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 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. The maximum operating current of the RCD must be less than 30mA.

Power tool use and care

■ Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application.

Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining your machine

The correct power tool will do the job better and more safely when operated 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 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.

■ 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.


■ 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 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 the risk of personal injuries.

■ Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to the power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying

Evergreens April and August

Conifers and other fast growing shrubs every 6 - 8 weeks

NOTE: Only operate the product during reasonable hours - not early in the morning, late at night or on weekends/public holidays when people might be disturbed. Please check local restrictions.

Trimming i. Cut and remove branches exceeding the cutting capacity of this product using a proper pruner before operation.

ii. Move the cutting device lightly through the surface to be cut in a sweeping motion following the shape of the hedge or shrub.

iii. A slight tilt downwards of the cutting device in the direction of motion is recommended for optimum cutting performance.

iv. Do not to rush and do not attempt to cut too much with one stroke of the cutting device.

16 AFTER SALES SUPPORT 0345 605 2067

OPERATE v. First cut both sides from the bottom cutting upwards to the top. This will prevent any of the trimmings falling into the path of the area still to be cut.

vi. After cutting the sides proceed to the top. Try to keep the cutting device angled at approximately 15° to the cutting surface.

15° vii. Cut in a number of stages if the area being cut is particularly long to achieve a better result; smaller trimmings will allow for easy composting.

NOTE: When shaping it is advisable to achieve a trapezoidal shape. A trapezoidal cut corresponds to the natural growth of plants and results in optimal hedge growth, as it will expose more light to the lower end of the hedge.
