SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Personal protective equipment WARNING! You must use approved personal protective equipment whenever you use the machine. Personal protective equipment cannot eliminate the risk of injury but it will reduce the degree of injury if an accident does happen. Ask your dealer for help in choosing the right equipment.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Mufﬂer The mufﬂer is designed to keep noise levels to a minimum and to direct exhaust fumes away from the user. In countries that have a warm and dry climate there is a signiﬁcant risk of ﬁre. Consequently, we have equipped the mufﬂer with a spark arrestor mesh mounted inside the mufﬂer.
Ensure that the spark plug cap and ignition lead are undamaged to avoid the risk of electric shock. • The blower operator must ensure that no people or animals come closer than 15 metres. When several operators are working at the same site a safety distance of at least 15 metres must be in effect.
• Use a rake or a brush to release rubbish stuck to the ground. • Hold the opening of the blower as close to the ground as possible. • Observe your surroundings. Direct the blower away from people, animals, play areas, and cars etc.
• The blower must not be used while on a ladder or scaffolding. • CAUTION! Do not use the machine unless you are able to call for help in the event of an accident.
