EDGER/TRIMMING SUPPORT WHEELS
There are three optional positions for the
Edger/Trimming Support Wheels to attach
when assisting in Trimming and Edging.
Position 1: Using the guide wheels
when trimming in a forward or
reverse direction (See Fig. J1)
Position the Grass Trimmer in the trimming
position. Underneath the Safety Guard there is
a metal plate that the Edger/Trimming Support
Wheels will attach to. Slide the Support
Wheels horizontally onto the metal plate until
they lock into position so both the wheels are
facing in the forward direction (See Fig. B3).
The wheels should provide support when
you are trimming in the forward or reverse
direction.
12
Position 2: Using the guide wheels
when trimming Side to Side
Position the Grass Trimmer in the trimming
position. Underneath the Safety Guard there is
a metal plate that the Edger/Trimming Support
Wheels will attach to. Slide the Support Wheels
vertically onto the metal plate until it locks
into position (See Fig. B2). The wheels should
provide support when you are trimming in a
horizontal side to side direction (See Fig. J2).
NOTE: you could also use the machine
without the guide wheels on guard when
trimming.
Position 3: Using the guide wheels
when edging (See Fig. i2)
Warning: Make Sure the Safety
Switch is Locked Off to Prevent
Accidental Starting.
Change the tool from trimming into the edging
mode, the Edger /Trimming Support Wheels
(12) will attach on the side the trimmer head
as shown in Fig. B1, rotate the main handle as
described in ‘’MAIN HANDLE ROTATION’’,
then unlock the Pivot Head Locking Knob, and
using adequate force, pull the trimmer head
into the desired position. Make sure to adjust
the trimmer head angle to be in the lowest
horizontal setting. Finally, lock the Pivot Head
Locking Knob and position the wheel on the
ground for the edging mode. While edging,
keep the Flower Guard/Edger Guide aligned
with the sidewalk edge, this will assist to
edge in a straight path. Only the tip of the line
will make contact with area being worked
on. Do not force the line. The edging wheels
help protect the unit and keep the unit from
contacting the ground. Take extra caution
while edging, as objects can be thrown from
the trimmer line.
Automatic line feed system
When initially switching on the trimmer, a
small length of line is fed out. Each time the
tool is started from rest it will advance about
0.25 inches of trimmer line.
A ‘clattering’ noise will be heard when
the lines hit the Line Cutter. DO NOT BE
ALARMED this is quite normal. After about
5 seconds the line will be cut to the correct
length and the noise will reduce as the motor
gains full speed.
If the noise of the line being cut can’t be heard,
more line will need to be fed out.
To feed more line, it is first necessary to allow
the trimmer to stop completely; it must come
to a complete rest, then restart, allowing the
motor to reach full speed.
Repeat above until you hear the line hitting
against the Line Cutter.
To manually feed the line
(See Fig. K1)
Turn off the trimmer and remove the battery.
If required, line can be fed out manually.
To operate, press and release manual Line
Feed Button (17), while gently pulling out the
line until it is long enough to reach the Line
Cutter.
If the line extends past the Line Cutter, too
much line has been fed out.
If too much line is fed out, remove the Spool
Cap and turn Spool counter-clockwise until the
line is at the desired length.
To remove the Spool Cap Cover
(See Fig. K2)
Press and hold in the two Cap Release Latches
(19) (See Fig. K2).
Pull the Spool Cap Cover (18) away from the

13
To Manually Wind line
(See Fig. L1-L4)
Take approximately 10ft (3m) of line. Insert
5/8”(15mm) of line into the Spool holes and
wind line in the direction of the arrows on the
top of the Spool.
Leave approximately 4” (100mm) of line
unwound and place into the cleat.
Ensure that the line is neatly coiled on
the Spool. Failure to do so will impair the
efficiency of the automatic line feed.
