UNDERSTANDING PROPANE

SAFETY WARNINGS FOR PROPANE UNITS
NOTE: Use propane only in containers speci cally
designed and approved for this unit. Propane is a
combustible gas, it is colorless and thus invisible to the
naked eye. Propane has a harmless odorant added so
that it is possible to smell it. The user should be familiar
with the smell of propane (smells like sulfur or rotten
eggs). If at any time the smell of propane is identi ed,
turn o the engine. If the leak persists, remove the pro -
pane canister. Never attempt to operate a unit that has
a suspected leak. Always remove the propane canister
from any unit that has a suspected leak.

Burning propane makes Carbon Monoxide (CO). CO is
invisible, has no smell and can kill you. Operating your
trimmer in an enclosed area can be dangerous.
