In addition to the above rules, these additional instructions are
appropriate when using the product in brushcutter mode.
Use heavy-duty gloves while installing or removing blades, they have
sharp edges.
Do not attempt to touch or stop the blade when it is rotating.
A moving blade can cause severe injury. Maintain proper control of the
product with both hands until the blade has completely stopped rotating.
Replace any blade that has been damaged. Always make sure the blade is

start using the product. Its correct use may prevent serious injury in case
of an emergency. Never wear additional clothing over the harness or
anything that can restrict access to the quick release mechanism.
Cover the blade with the blade protector before storing the product or
during transportation. Always remove the blade protector before using
the product. If not removed, the blade protector could become a thrown
object as the blade begins to turn.
Exercise extreme caution when using the blade with the product. Blade
thrust is the reaction that may occur when the spinning blade contacts
anything it cannot cut. This contact may cause the blade to stop for an
instant, and suddenly "thrust" the product away from the object that was
hit. This reaction can be violent enough to cause the operator to lose
control of the product. Blade thrust may occur without warning if the
blade snags, stalls, or binds. This is more likely to occur in areas where it
is difficult to see the material being cut.
For cutting ease and safety, approach the weeds being cut from the right
to the left. In the event that an unexpected object or woody stock is
encountered, this practice could minimize the blade thrust reaction. Both
hands must be used at all times to control the product.

specified by AEG in this manual. This includes the use of metal multi-
piece pivoting chains and flail-blades. These items are known to break
