during operation, use the cord hitch
described in this manual.
Dress properly when operating trimmer.
• Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry that can get caught in the
moving parts of the trimmer.
• Always wear rubber gloves and
substantial foot wear when working outside.
• Always wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.

operation is dusty.
Always wear eye protection that
meets or exceeds the requirements of
ANSI Z87.1.
Wear long pants and shoes when

SAFETY
WARNINGS

|
Make sure your extension cord is in
good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy
enough to carry the current your
trimmer will draw. An undersized
extension cord will cause a drop in
line voltage resulting in loss of power
and overheating.

To reduce the risk of electric shock,
the trimmer has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other) and will
require the use of a polarized extension cord. The trimmer’s plug will fit
into a polarized extension cord only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully
into the extension cord, reverse the
plug. If the plug still does not fit,
obtain a correct polarized extension
cord. A polarized extension cord will
require the use of a polarized wall outlet. This plug will fit into the polarized
wall outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the wall outlet,
reverse the plug. If the plug still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper wall outlet. Do
not change the trimmer plug, extension cord receptacle, or extension cord
plug in any way.

when plugging in trimmer.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times when
operating trimmer.

job better and with less likelihood of
a risk of injury at the rate for which
it was designed.
Do not abuse power cord. Never
pull or carry trimmer by power cord.
Never yank cord to disconnect from
receptacle. Keep power cord from
heat, oil, and sharp edges.
Keep hands and feet away from cutting area.
2.
Maintain trimmer with care.
• Inspect trimmer cord periodically,
and if damaged, have it repaired by
a qualified service facility.
• Inspect extension cords periodically
and replace if damaged.
• If trimmer is not working properly,
has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water,
have it repaired by a qualified service center.
• Keep handles dry, clean, and free
from oil and grease.
• Keep guards in place and in working order.
Check damaged parts.
• If a part is damaged, carefully check
the damaged part before using the
trimmer. Make sure the part will
operate properly and perform its
intended function.
• Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, mounting, and
any other condition that may affect
its operation.
• A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or
replaced by a qualified service center
unless indicated elsewhere in this
manual.
• Use only geniune Remington®
replacement parts and accessories.
These are available from your local
dealer. Use of any non-Remington® parts or accessories could lead

4.
Ser vicing of Double-Insulated
Tools:
• In a double-insulated tool, two
systems of insulation are provided
instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a doubleinsulated tool, nor should a means
for grounding be added to the tool.
Servicing a double-insulated tool
requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should
be done only by qualified service
personnel. Replacement parts for
a double-insulated tool must be
identical to the parts they replace.
Store idle trimmer indoors. When not
in use, store trimmer and extension
cord indoors in a dry location. Store
trimmer above the reach of children
or in a locked area out of the reach of
children.
This manual is your guide to safe and proper
operation of the trimmer.

Advancing Trimmer Line
WARNING: To prevent serious
personal injury, never use metalreinforced line, wire, or rope, etc.
These can break off and become
a dangerous projectile.
WARNING: Blade is sharp.
To prevent serious injury, do not
touch blade.
To advance new trimmer line, tap the line
advance button on the ground while the
trimmer is running (see Figure 4-9). The
blade attached to the cutting guard will
cut the line to the proper length.
Follow the precautions below to ensure
top line performance.
• Do not hold the line advance button on the ground. This will allow
trimmer line to constantly feed off
the spool.
• Tap the line advance button only
once to advance line. If more line
is needed, wait a few seconds and
tap again.
• Be sure to advance the line as it
wears down. If you wait too long to
advance new line, the existing line
will wear down too short and can
retract into the spool. If this happens, remove the spool and reroute
the line out of the spool. Reinstall
the spool to the trimmer head.
