• Keep all parts of the body and clothing away
from the blades during startup and while the
engine is running.
• Always work from a stable position on your feet.
• Do not use the hedge trimmer while standing
on a ladder or other unstable support.
• When trimming tall hedges or bushes, use a
stable, safe platform and stand in a stable posi-
tion without the risk of losing your balance.
• If you strike an object accidentally, switch off the
engine immediately and examine the machine.
• Make sure the grip and hand guard are in place
during use of the machine.
• When trimming or edging, keep the engine run-
ning at high speed; these operations should not
be carried out with the motor running at low
speed.
• Never lift the hedge trimmer above shoulder
height when using it.
• Always wait for the motor to idle before moving
the machine from one section of the shrub or
hedge to another.
CAUTION!
Do not smoke while refueling!
• Open the cap on the tank by loosening it
slowly.
• Fill the tank in the open, far from flames or
sparks.
• Never add fuel in the tank when the engine
is running or hot, (let the engine cool off
before filling the tank) to avoid the risk of
fire.
• Avoid contact of the oil and fuel with the
skin and eyes.
• Fill the tank in a well-ventilated place.
• Do not inhale the fumes of the fuel mixture.
It is toxic.
• Store the fuel mixture in suitable fuel con-
tainers only.
PREPARATION OF THE MIXTURE
CAUTION!
• Do not use any other type of fuel than the
type recommended in this manual.
• This machine is equipped with a two-stroke
engine and should therefore be fueled with a
mixture of unleaded gasoline (with a mini-
mum octane rating = 90) and fully synthetic
oil specific for two-speed engines that use
unleaded gasoline in the proportions indi-
cated in the table on the cover, fig. (D)

• Stop the engine when changing to another
place or before examining the blades.
• Before starting to cut again make sure your
position is correct.
• To reduce the fire hazard keep the engine and
muffler free of twigs, leaves or excess lubricant.
• Watch out for the sharp edges and hot part of
the machine.
• Prolonged use of the machine or other equip-
ment expose the operator to vibrations that can
cause the White Finger Syndrome (Syndrome of
Raynaud). This could reduce the sensitivity of
the hands in distinguishing different tempera-
tures and cause a general numbness. The
operator should therefore check the conditions
of the hands and fingers if the machine is used
continuously or regularly. If one of the symp-
toms should appear, consult a doctor immedi-
ately.
D. Fuel Mixture
CAUTION! Control the specifications of
the oil shown on the package; the use of
oil lacking the specifications expressly indicat-
ed in this manual could cause serious damage
to the engine!
• To obtain the best mixture, pour the oil into an
approved container first, followed by the gaso-
line, and shake the container well (every time
you take fuel out of it).
• Be careful not to spill the gasoline.
• The characteristics of the mixture tend to deteri-
orate in time, so you should only prepare as
much mixture as you are going to need.

FILLING THE TANK

CAUTION! The following precautions
should be taken to reduce the fire hazard:
• Always ensure there is adequate ventilation.
• Do not smoke or take sources of heat or
sparks near the fuel.
• Refuel with the engine off.
• Open the cap on the tank carefully to elimi-
nate any excess pressure.
• Do not take the cap off the tank with the
engine running.
• After fueling, close the cap tightly.
• Fill the tank in a well-ventilated place.
• Place the machine on a solid flat surface so that
it cannot tip over, with the cap on the tank fac-
ing upward.
