cutting efficiency, as well as increasing the risk of
The extension (B) should be installed only for use
with the nylon string head, with the aid of the
string cutter blade (L), that regulates the length of
the string and thus the cutting diameter. For cor-
rect assembly see the illustration on the cover

Insert the extension (B) on the safety guard (A) at
the reference notches (C), and fasten with the
screws (D), then apply the string cutter blade (L)
and fasten it with the screw (E) (Make sure the
screws are tightened all the way (E) and are not
loosened by the vibrations. If necessary, tighten
them again).
