INSTRUCTIONS
HOW
TO USE THE
LINE
TRIMMER
The
Line
Trimmer
is designed
for
trimming
and light
edging
work.
It uses only
the (very) tip of a monofilament
nylon
line
specially-treated
for
longer
wear.
The
life
of the cutting
line
depends
upon
the
type
of
surface
against
which
you
are
cutting.
It will
wear
faster
when you are cutting
against
rocks,
bricks,
concrete,
metal
fences,
etc. than
it will against
trees or
wooden
fences.
The
line
may
cut
tender
bark
of
trees
or
shrubs
and could
scar fences.
Learning
the proper
technique
of
cutting
around
objects
is very important.
