DRESS PROPERLY — Don't operate the tool when
barefoot or wearing open sandals. Always wear substantial
footwear. Use of rubber gloves and substantial rubber soled
footwear is recommended when working outdoors.
AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
— Do not use electric tools in damp or wet locations. Follow
all instructions in this instruction manual for proper operation
of your trimmer.
DON'T USE THE TRIMMER IN THE RAIN.
DO NOT OPERATE portable electric tools in gaseous or
explosive atmospheres. Motors in these tools normally spark,
and the sparks might ignite fumes.
STORE IDLE TOOLS INDOORS — When not in use, tools
should be stored indoors in dry, locked-up placed—out of
reach of children.
THE ROTATING LINE PERFORMS A CUTTING
FUNCTION — Use care when trimming around screens
and desirable plantings.
USE ONLY RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT LINE —
Do not use heavier line or other line materials, eg. metal
wire, fishing line or similar materials.
AN IMPORTANT CONSUMER FEATURE
Your tool is DOUBLE INSULATED to give you added safety.
This means that it is constructed throughout with two separate
"layers" of electrical insulation or one double thickness of insulation
between you and the tool's electrical system.
Note: DOUBLE INSULATION does not take the place of normal
safety precautions when operating this tool. The insulation system
is for added protection against injury resulting from a possible
electrical insulation failure within the tool.
Caution! When servicing double insulated tools, USE
ONLY IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS. Replace
or repair damaged cords.
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 product will draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.
The following table shows the correct size to use depending on
cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

Caution! Inspect area to be trimmed for any wire, cord,
or string-like matter which could become entangled in
the rotating line or spool. Be particularly careful to avoid
any wire which might be bent outwardly into the path of
the tool, such as barbs at the base of a chain link fence.

Line Feeding Procedure
In order to feed a length of cutting line, strike the bump cap on
the lawn while the trimmer is running. This will automatically
feed a new length of line and trim it to the correct length. A firm
but gentle motion should be used to strike the bump cap. The
unit should be angled slightly forward to prevent the guard from
contacting the ground. This process may be repeated as often
as necessary. If unit fails to feed, unplug extension cord at
trimmer and clean out the bump cap.
