Locking nut
A locking nut is used to secure some types of cutting
attachment.
When fitting, tighten the nut in the opposite direction to the
direction of rotation of the cutting attachment. To remove
it, undo the nut in the same direction as the cutting
attachment rotates. (CAUTION! The nut has a left-hand
thread.) Tighten the nut using the socket spanner.
The nylon lining inside the locking nut must not be so worn
that you can turn it by hand. The lining should offer a
resistance of at least 1.5 Nm. The nut should be replaced
after it has been put on approx. 10 times.
