ASSEMBLY & ADJUSTMENTS cont.
ATTACHING EXTENSION CORD
1. Insert extension cord socket into Edger's Power Plug (Fig. 5).
2. An Extension Cord Retainer is attached to the Handle to reduce strain on the cord.
To use this feature, simply double the extension cord as shown, about a foot from
the end, and insert it into the end of the Retainer. Place the loop formed by
doubling the cord over the Hook (Fig. 6a). Gently tug on the cord to ensure that it
is firmly situated in the Retainer (Fig. 6b).
3. Keep extension cord clear of operator, unit and any obstacles at all times.
Do not expose the cord to heat, oil, water, or sharp edges.

ASSEMBLY & ADJUSTMENTS cont.
CUTTING DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
The front wheel can be adjusted to allow a deeper or shallower cut.
We recommend the shallower setting to increase the life of the blade.
To adjust the cutting depth to your desired depth:
WARNING:
To avoid injury, ALWAYS turn off and disconnect the Edger
!
from the power outlet BEFORE installing parts or cleaning the Edger or
making any adjustments.
CAUTION:
BLADE ROTATES momentarily after power switch is released.
!
Wait for blade to come to a complete stop.
1. To loosen Front Wheel, pull out on Release Lever of Cutting Depth Knob located at the
front of Edger across from the Front Wheel (Fig. 7a).
2. Adjust the wheel depth using the Depth Indicator on the Wheel Bracket and the markings
on the front Housing (Fig. 7b).
NOTE: The recommended depth for edging is 1 inch.
3. Tighten the Cutting Depth Release Lever by pushing in firmly.
