For Your Safety
Warning! Switch off, remove the isolator key and
the battery before adjusting, cleaning or if cable
is cut, damaged or entangled.
The blades continue to rotate for a few seconds
after the machine is switched off.
do not touch the rotating blade.
Do not use other battery chargers. The supplied
battery charger is designed for the Lithium-Ion bat-
tery in your garden product.
Observe the mains voltage! The voltage of the
power supply must correspond with the data given
on the nameplate of the battery charger. Battery
chargers marked with 230 V can also be operated
with 220 V.

The battery is equipped with temperature monitoring
that allows charging only in the temperature range be-
tween 0 °C and 45 °C. In this manner, a high battery
service life is achieved.
Note: The battery is supplied partially charged. To en-
sure full capacity of the battery, completely charge the
battery in the battery charger before using your power
tool for the first time.
The lithium ion battery can be charged at any time
without reducing its service life. Interrupting the
charging procedure does not damage the battery.
The "Electronic Cell Protection (ECP)" protects the
lithium ion battery against deep discharging. When the
battery is run down or discharged, the garden product
is shut off by means of a protective circuit: The blade
no longer moves.
Do not continue to press the
On/Off switch after the garden
product has been automatically switched off. The
battery can be damaged.
The charging procedure starts as soon as the mains
plug of the battery charger is plugged into the socket
outlet and the battery is inserted into the charging
Due to the intelligent charging method, the charging
condition of the battery is automatically detected and
the battery is charged with the optimum charging cur-
rent, depending on battery temperature and voltage.
This gives longer life to the battery and always leaves
it fully charged when kept in the charger for storage.

The rapid-charging procedure is indicated by flashing
of the green charge control LED.
Indication element of the battery: During the charging
procedure, the three green LEDs light up one after the
other and briefly go out. The battery is fully charged
when the three green LEDs light up continuously. The
three LEDs go out again approx. 5 minutes after the
battery has been fully charged.
Note: The rapid-charging procedure is only possible when
the battery temperature is within the allowable charging
temperature range, see section "Technical Data".
