GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Important

IMPORTANT!
The machine is only designed for cutting branches and
twigs.
Never use a machine that has been modified in any way
from its original specification.
Never use the machine if you are tired, if you have drunk
alcohol, or if you are taking medication that could affect your
vision, your judgement or your co-ordination.
Wear personal protective equipment. See instructions
under the heading Personal protective equipment.
Never use the machine in extreme weather conditions such
as severe cold, very hot and/or humid climates.
Never use a machine that is faulty. Carry out the checks,
maintenance and service instructions described in this
manual. Some maintenance and service measures must be
carried out by trained and qualified specialists. See
instructions under the heading Maintenance.
All covers and guards must be fitted before starting. Ensure
that the spark plug cap and ignition lead are undamaged to
avoid the risk of electric shock.
WARNING! The ignition system of this
!
machine produces an electromagnetic field
during operation. This field may under some
circumstances interfere with pacemakers. To
reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, we
recommend persons with pacemakers to
consult their physician and the pacemaker
manufacturer before operating this machine.
WARNING! Running an engine in a confined
!
or badly ventilated area can result in death
due to asphyxiation or carbon monoxide
poisoning.
WARNING! Never allow children to use or be
!
in the vicinity of the machine. As the
machine is equipped with a spring-loaded
stop switch and can be started by low speed
and force on the starter handle, even small
children under some circumstances can
produce the force necessary to start the
machine. This can mean a risk of serious
personal injury. Therefore remove the spark
plug cap when the machine is not under
close supervision.

Personal protective equipment

IMPORTANT!
A pole saw is a dangerous tool if used carelessly or
incorrectly and can cause serious, even fatal injuries. It is
extremely important that you read and understand the
contents of this Operator's Manual.
You must use approved personal protective equipment
whenever you use the machine. Personal protective
equipment cannot eliminate the risk of injury but it will
reduce the degree of injury if an accident does happen. Ask
your dealer for help in choosing the right equipment.
WARNING! Listen out for warning signals or
!
shouts when you are wearing hearing
protection. Always remove your hearing
protection as soon as the engine stops.
PROTECTIVE HELMET AND VISOR
HEARING PROTECTION
Wear hearing protection that provides adequate noise
reduction.
EYE PROTECTION
Blows from branches or objects that are thrown out by a
cutting attachment can damage the eyes.
GLOVES
Gloves should be worn when necessary, e.g., when fitting
cutting attachments.
BOOTS
Wear sturdy, non-slip boots.
