SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

THE POWER CUTTER'S SAFETY
EQUIPMENT
This section describes the power cutter's safety equipment, its
function and how checks and maintenance are carried out to
ensure that it operates correctly. (See the chapter "What is
what" to locate where this equipment is positioned on your
power cutter.)
!
WARNING! Never use a power cutter with
defective safety equipment. Follow the
control, maintenance and service instructions
described in this manual.
1 Anti-vibration
system
Your power cutter is equipped
with an anti-vibration system.
This is designed to give as low
vibration levels and
comfortable usage as possible.
The power cutter's anti-
vibration system reduces the
transfer of vibration between
the engine/cutting equipment
and the cutting trolley. The
engine body including the
cutting equipment is
suspended in a handle system
via anti-vibration elements.
2 Stop switch
The stop switch should be
used to stop the engine.
