ADDITIONAL BATTERY SAFETY WARNING
WARNING! To reduce the risk of fire, personal injury, and product
damage due to a short circuit, never immerse your tool, battery pack,
or charger in fluid or allow a fluid to flow inside them. Corrosive or
conductive fluids, such as seawater, certain industrial chemicals, and
bleach or bleach-containing products, etc., can cause a short circuit.
RESIDUAL RISKS
Even when the product is used as prescribed, it is still impossible to completely
eliminate certain residual risk factors. The following hazards may arise during
use, and the operator should pay special attention to avoid the following:
injury caused by vibration
Hold the product by designated handles and restrict working time
and exposure.
injury caused by exposure to noise
Wear hearing protection and limit exposure.
injury caused by flying debris
Wear eye protection at all times.
Contact with cutting means. Ensure that the blade protectors are fitted when
the product is not in use. Keep hands and feet away from the blades at all
times.
Kickback can occur when using the brushcutter. Ensure proper control by
using both hands on the designated handles. Read and follow the directions
elsewhere in this manual to help reduce the risk of kickback.
Risk of falling objects. During brushcutting, wear head protection if there is
any risk of falling objects.
RISK REDUCTION
It has been reported that vibrations from handheld tools may contribute
to a condition called Raynaud's Syndrome. Symptoms may include tingling,
numbness, and blanching of the fingers, usually apparent upon exposure to
cold. Hereditary factors, exposure to cold and dampness, diet, smoking, and
work practices are all thought to contribute to the development of these
symptoms. There are measures that can be taken by the operator to possibly
reduce the effects of vibration:
Keep your body warm in cold weather. When using the product, wear
gloves to keep the hands and wrists warm. It is reported that cold weather
is a major factor contributing to Raynaud's Syndrome.
After each period of operation, exercise to increase blood circulation.
Take frequent work breaks. Limit the amount of exposure per day.
If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, immediately
discontinue use and see your physician.
WARNING! Injuries may be caused, or aggravated, by prolonged use
of a tool. When using any tool for prolonged periods, ensure you take
regular breaks.
