The charging procedure is signalled by a
flashing battery charge indicator.
Continuous Lighting of the Battery Charge
Continuous lighting of the battery
charge indicator indicates that the
battery is fully charged or that the
temperature of the battery is not with-

charged for this reason. The battery is charged as soon as the
allowable charging temperature range is reached.

Charging Advice
With continuous or several repetitive charging cycles without
interruption, the charger can warm up. This is not meaningful
and does not indicate a technical defect of the battery charg-
A significantly reduced working period after charging indi-
cates that the battery is used and must be replaced.
Working Advice
 Hold the garden product away from yourself. Stand in a
secure and stable position.
 When storing the product, do no store it hanging on the
front handle or switch.
Anti Blocking
If the blade stalls on a tough material, the load of the motor in-
creases. The intelligent micro-electronics senses this over-
load condition and repeatedly reverses the motor, in order to
prevent stalling and to cut the material through.
This audible reversing cut action continues for up to 3 s.
After cutting through, the garden product continues in its nor-
mal mode, or in case the overload condition continues the
blades automatically stop in the open position (e. g. in case a
piece of metal fence accidentally blocks the garden product).
Corrective Action
