• MAKE SURE that other persons and pets are at least 100 feet (30m) away.

that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and
perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other condition that may affect its operation.
A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an
authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this manual.
WARNING: When servicing double insulated tools, USE ONLY IDENTICAL

2. Your trimmer line can dry out over time. To keep your line in top condition, store spare
pre-wound spools or bulk line in a plastic, sealable bag with a tablespoon of water.
3. Plastic parts may be cleaned by using a mild soap and a damp rag.
4. DO NOT immerse tool in water or squirt it with a hose. DO NOT allow any liquid to get
inside it.
5. Do not store the tool on or adjacent to fertilizers or chemicals.
6. DO NOT clean with a pressure washer.
7. The line cutter on the edge of the guard can dull over time.
SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS: POLARIZED PLUGS
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other) and will require the use of a polarized extension cord. The appliance plug
will fit into a polarized extension cord only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the
extension cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, obtain a correct polarized
extension cord. A polarized extension cord will require the use of a polarized wall outlet.
This plug will fit into the polarized wall outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into
the wall outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install the proper wall outlet. Do not change the equipment plug, extension cord receptacle,
or extension cord plug in any way.
