5. HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
5.1 GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POWER TOOL USE
When using any type of power tool there are steps that should be taken to make sure that
you, as the user, remain safe.
Common sense and a respect for the tool will help reduce the risk of injury.
Read the instruction manual fully. Do not attempt any operation until you have read and
understood this manual.
Most important you must know how to safely start and stop this machine, especially in an
emergency.
Keep the work area tidy and clean. Attempting to clear clutter from around the machine
during use will reduce your concentration. Mess on the floor creates a trip hazard. Any
liquid spilt on the floor could result in you slipping.
Find a suitable location. If the machine is bench mounted; the location should provide good
natural light or artificial lighting as a replacement. Avoid damp and dust locations as it will
have a negative effect on the machine’s performance.
If the machine is portable; do not expose the tool to rain. In all cases do not operate power
tools near any flammable materials.
Beware of electric shock. Avoid contact with earthed surfaces; because they can conduct
electricity if there is an electrical fault with the power tool. Always protect the power cable
and route it away from danger.
Keep bystanders away. Children, onlookers and passers by must be restricted from entering
the work area for their own protection. The barrier must extend a suitable distance from the
tool user.
Unplug and house all power tools that are not in use. A power tool should never be left
unattended while connected to the power supply. They must be housed in a suitable
location, away locked up and from children.
Do not overload or misuse the tool. All tools are designed for a purpose and are limited to
what they are capable of doing. Do not attempt to use a power tool (or adapt it in any way)
for an application it is not designed for. Select a tool appropriate for the size of the job.
Overloading a tool will result in tool failure and user injury: This covers the use of
accessories.
Dress properly. Loose clothing, long hair and jewellery are all dangerous because they can
become entangled in moving machinery: This can also result in parts of body being pulled
into the machine.
Clothing should be close fitted, with any long hair tired back and jewellery and neck ties
removed. Footwear must be fully enclosed and have a nonslip sole.
5. HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
Wear personal protective equipment (PPE). Dust, noise, vibration and swarf can all be
dangerous if not suitably protected against. If the work involving the power tool creates dust
or fumes; wear a dust mask. Vibration to the hand, caused by operating some tools for
longer periods must be protected against. Wear vibration reducing gloves and allow long
breaks between uses. Protect against dust and swarf by wearing approved safety goggles or
a face shield. These are some of the more common hazards and preventions; however,
always find out what hazards are associated with the machine/work process and wear the
most suitable protective equipment available.
Do not breathe contaminated air. If the work creates dust or fumes; connect the machine (if
possible) to an extraction system either locally or remotely. Working outdoors can also help
if possible.
Move the machine as instructed. If the machine is hand held, do not carry it by the power
supply cable. If the product is heavy; employ a second or third person to help move it safely
or use a mechanical device. Always refer to the instructions for the correct method.
Do not overreach. Extending your body too far can result in a loss of balance and you
falling. This could be from a height or onto a machine and will result in injury.
Maintain your tools correctly. A well maintained tool will do the job safely. Replace any
damaged or missing parts immediately with original parts from the manufacturer. As
applicable; keep blades sharp; moving parts clean, oiled or greased; handles clean; and
emergency devices working.
Wait for the machine to stop. Unless the machine is fitted with a safety brake; some parts
may continue to move due to momentum. Wait for all parts to stop; then unplug it from the
power supply before making any adjustments, carrying out maintenance operations or just
finishing using the tool.
Remove and check setting tools. Some machinery requires the use of additional tools or keys
to set, load or adjust the power tool. Before starting the power tool always check to make
certain they have been removed and are safely away from the machine.
Prevent unintentional starting. Before plugging any machine in to the power supply, make
sure the switch is in the OFF position. If the machine is portable; do not hold the machine
near the switch and take care when putting the machine down; that nothing can operate the
switch.
Carefully select an extension lead. Some machines are not suitable for use with extension
leads. If the tool is designed for use outdoors; use an extension lead also suitable for that
environment. When using an extended lead, select one capable of handling the current
(amps) drawn by the machine in use. Fully extend the lead regardless of the distance
between the power supply and the tool. Excess current (amps) and a coiled extension lead
will both cause the cable to heat up and can result in fire.
Concentrate and stay alert. Distractions are likely to cause an accident. Never operate a
power tool if you are under the influence of drugs (prescription or otherwise), including
alcohol or if you are feeling tired. Being disorientated will result in an accident.
5. HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
Have this tool repaired by a qualified person. This tool is designed to confirm to the relevant
international and local standards and as such should be maintained and repaired by someone
qualified; using only original parts supplied by the manufacturer: This will ensure the tool
remains safe to use.

9. OPERATING THE GRASS TRIMMER
9.4 CUTTING HEAD: - FIGS. 8 - 10
Check the nylon line regularly, when the trimming
performance decreases adjust the line length.
With the machine unplugged from the mains
press the button (5) and pull the line to extend
on both sides of the cutting head. Any excess line
will be removed by the trimming pin/blade on
machine power up.
If the nylon line has disappeared inside the spool,
proceed by pressing in the two locking tabs
simultaneously. Raise the cover up to access the
reel. Take care if the reel contains any residual
nylon line as it will have a tendency to uncoil
rapidly. This will lead to the line becoming
tangled causing feed problems.
Pass the end of the line through the spool
apertures and position the reel over the
spring. While holding the reel down and
preventing it from spinning, relocate the cover
ensuring the tabs lock on both sides.
Clean the line length trimming blade of grass to
ensure a satisfactory cut is maintained.
WARNING: Take care of injury from any device
fitted for trimming the filament line length.
9.5 GENERAL CUTTING:
Sweep the trimmer from side to side consistently
to cut small patches of grass/weed.
This trimmer is not suitable and is not designed to
cut large areas of lawn.
When operating the trimmer observe what
direction the debris is ejected and position the
trimmer to avoid injury from stones etc.
