SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

The machine's safety equipment

This section describes the machine's safety equipment, its
function and how checks and maintenance are carried out to
ensure that it operates correctly. (See the chapter "What is
what" to locate where this equipment is positioned on your
machine.)
!
WARNING!
Never use a machine with defective safety
equipment. Follow the control,
maintenance and service instructions
described in this section.
1. Throttle trigger
lock
The throttle trigger lock is
designed to prevent the
throttle from accidentally
being engaged. When the
trigger lock (A) is pressed
into the handle (= when you
hold the handle) the throttle
(B) is released. When the
grip on the handle is
released the throttle and the
throttle trigger lock return
to their original positions.
This takes place via two
independent return spring
systems. This means that the
throttle is automatically
locked in its "idling"
position.
2. Stop switch
The stop switch should be
used to stop the engine.
3. Cutting
attachment guard
This guard is intended to
prevent objects from being
thrown towards the
operator and to protect the
operator from
unintentionel contact with
the cutting attachment.
!
WARNING!
Under no circumstances may the cutting
equipment be used without an approved
guard fitted. See the chapter "Technical
data" . If the wrong guard or a defective
guard is fitted this can cause serious
