Control before starting

For reasons of safety follow
these recommendations!
• Check the blade to ensure
that no cracks have formed
at the bottom of the teeth
or by the centre hole. The
most common reason why
cracks are formed is that
sharp corners have been
formed at the bottom of
the teeth while sharpening
or that the blade has been
used with dull teeth.
Discard a blade if cracks
are found.
• Check that the support
flange is not cracked due
to fatigue or due to being
tightened too much.
Discard the support flange
if it is cracked.
• Ensure the locking nut has
not lost its captive force.
The nut lock should have
a locking force of at least
1.5 Nm. The tightening
torque of the locking nut
should be 35-50 Nm.
• Check that the guard is
not damaged or cracked.
Replace the guard if it is
exposed to impact or is
• Check that the trimmer
head and spray guard are
not damaged or cracked.
Replace the trimmer head
or spray guard if they are
exposed to impact or are
• Never use the machine without a guard or spray guard nor
with a defective guard.

a flat surface. Ensure the cutting equip-
ment cannot come into contact with any
object. Make sure no unauthorised
persons are in the working area, other-
wise there is a risk of serious personal
injury. The safety distance is 15 metres.

Press the machine body
against the ground using
your left hand (NOTE! Not

Reset the choke control as
