manual and the operator’s manual of the unit that will
power this add-on.
• Do not operate this unit when tired, ill, or under the
influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication.
• Children and teens under the age of 15 must not use
the unit, except for teens guided by an adult.
• Use only 0.080 inch (2.03 mm) diameter genuine Ryobi

dangerous projectile.
• This unit was not designed to be used as a
brushcutter. Do not attach or operate this unit with any
type of brushcutting blade or brushcutting attachment.
SAFETY WARNINGS FOR GAS TRIMMERS
WARNING: Gasoline is highly flammable, and its vapors
can explode if ignited. Take the following precautions:
• Store fuel only in containers specifically designed and
approved for the storage of such materials.
• Always stop the engine and allow it to cool before
filling the fuel tank. Never remove the cap of the fuel
tank, or add fuel, when the engine is hot. Never
operate the unit without the fuel cap securely in place.
Loosen the fuel tank cap slowly to relieve any pressure
in the tank.
• Mix and add fuel in a clean, well-ventilated area
outdoors where there are no sparks or flames. Slowly
remove the fuel cap only after stopping engine. Do not
smoke while fueling or mixing fuel. Wipe up any spilled
fuel from the unit immediately.
• Avoid creating a source of ignition for spilled fuel. Do
not start the engine until fuel vapors dissipate.
• Move the unit at least 30 feet (9.1 m) from the fueling
source and site before starting the engine. Do not
smoke, keep sparks and open flames from the area
while adding fuel or operating the unit.
• Never start or run the unit inside a closed room or
building. Breathing exhaust fumes can kill. Operate
this unit only in a well ventilated area outdoors.
SAFETY WARNINGS FOR ELECTRIC TRIMMERS
• WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, use
only extension cords approved for outdoor use, such
as an extension cord of cord type SW-A, SOW-A,
STW-A, STOW-A, SJW-A, SJOW-A, SJTW-W or
SJTOW-A. Extension cords are available from your
local retailer. Use only round-jacketed extension cords
approved for outdoor use.
• CORD SETS: Make sure your cord set is in good
condition. When using a cord set, be sure to use a
cord that is heavy enough to carry the current that
your unit will draw.An undersized cord set will cause a
drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating. See the operator’s manual for the unit
that will power this add-on for the recommended cord
size.
• Inspect all extension cords and the unit power
connection periodically. Look closely for deterioration,
cuts or cracks in the insulation. Also inspect the
connections for damage. Replace the cords if any
defects or damage appear.
• Avoid dangerous environments. Never operate your
unit in damp or wet conditions. Moisture is a shock
hazard.
• Do not use the unit in the rain.
• Do not handle the plug or unit with wet hands or
standing on any wet surfaces.
• Do not leave the unit plugged in when not in use,
changing attachments or add-ons, or while

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
HOLDING THE TRIMMER
WARNING: Always wear eye, hearing, foot
and body protection to reduce the risk of
injury when operating this unit.
Before operating the unit, stand in the operating position
(Figs. 4 & 5). Check for the following:
• The operator is wearing eye protection and proper
clothing.
• The right arm is slightly bent, and the hand is holding
the shaft grip.
• The left arm is straight, and the hand is holding the
J-handle or D-handle.
• The unit is at waist level.
• The cutting attachment is parallel to the ground and
easily contacts the vegetation to be cut without the
operator having to bend over.
Fig. 6
Each time the head is bumped, about 1 inch (25.4 mm.)
of trimming line is released. A blade in the cutting
attachment shield will cut the line to the proper length if
excess line is released.
For best results, tap the Bump Head™ on bare ground
or hard soil. If line release is attempted in tall grass, the
engine may stall. Always keep the trimming line fully
extended. Line release becomes more difficult as the
cutting line becomes shorter.
NOTE: Do not rest the Bump Head™ on the ground
while the unit is running .
CAUTION: Do not remove or alter the line
cutting blade assembly. Excessive line length
will make the clutch overheat. This may lead
to serious personal injury or damage to the
unit.
Fig. 4
Some line breakage will occur from:
• Entanglement with foreign matter
• Normal line fatigue
• Attempting to cut thick, stalky weeds
• Forcing the line into objects such as walls or fence
posts
TIPS FOR BEST TRIMMING RESULTS
•
•
Fig. 5
ADJUSTING TRIMMING LINE LENGTH
The Bump Head™ cutting attachment allows you to
release trimming line without stopping the engine. To
release more line, lightly tap the cutting attachment on
the ground (Fig. 6) while operating the trimmer at high
speed.
NOTE: Always keep the trimming line fully extended.
Line release becomes more difficult as cutting
line becomes shorter.
Keep the cutting attachment parallel to the ground.
Do not force the cutting attachment. Allow the tip of
the line to do the cutting, especially along walls.
Cutting with more than the tip will reduce cutting
efficiency and may overload the engine.
• Cut grass over 8 inches (200 mm) by working from
top to bottom in small increments to avoid premature line wear or engine drag.
• Cut from left to right whenever possible. Cutting to
the right improves the unit's cutting efficiency.
Clippings are thrown away from the operator.
• Slowly move the trimmer into and out of the cutting
area at the desired height. Move either in a forwardbackward or side-to-side motion. Cutting shorter
lengths produces the best results.
• Trim only when grass and weeds are dry.
• The life of your cutting line is dependent upon;
• Following the previous trimming techniques
• What vegetation is being cut
• Where it’s being cut
For example, the line will wear faster when trimming
against a foundation wall as opposed to trimming
around a tree.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
DECORATIVE TRIMMING
Decorative trimming is accomplished by removing all
vegetation around trees, posts, fences, etc.
Rotate the whole unit so that the cutting attachment is at
a 30° angle to the ground (Fig. 7).
