3 Silencer
WARNING! During use and for some time
after the silencer is very hot. Do not touch the
silencer if it is hot!
The silencer is designed to
give the lowest possible noise
level and to direct the engine's
exhaust fumes away from the
user. The engine's exhaust
fumes are hot and can contain
sparks, which can lead to the
outbreak of fire.
In countries that have a warm
and dry climate the risk of
forest fires is obvious. We
have therefore fitted certain
silencers with a spark arrest
screen. Make sure that your
silencer is fitted with this kind
of screen.
MPORTANT INFORMATION! It is extremely important that
the instructions for checking, maintaining and servicing
the silencer are followed. (see the section "Control,
maintenance and service of the power cutter's safety
equipment" ).
4 Disc guard for the cutting disc
WARNING! Always check that the disc guard
is correctly fitted before starting the machine.
The disc guard is mounted
above the cutting disc and
prevents cutting fragments
from being thrown towards the
