IMPORTANT!
The machine is only designed for cutting branches and
twigs.
Never use a machine that has been modified in any way
from its original specification.
Never use the machine if you are tired, if you have drunk
alcohol, or if you are taking medication that could affect your
vision, your judgement or your co-ordination.
Wear personal protective equipment. See instructions

Never use the machine in extreme weather conditions such

Never use a machine that is faulty. Carry out the checks,
maintenance and service instructions described in this

carried out by trained and qualified specialists. See
instructions under the heading Maintenance.
All covers and guards must be fitted before starting. Ensure
that the spark plug cap and ignition lead are undamaged to
avoid the risk of electric shock.
WARNING! The ignition system of this
!
machine produces an electromagnetic field
during operation. This field may under some
circumstances interfere with pacemakers. To
reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, we
recommend persons with pacemakers to
consult their physician and the pacemaker
manufacturer before operating this machine.
WARNING! Running an engine in a confined
!
or badly ventilated area can result in death
due to asphyxiation or carbon monoxide
poisoning.

risk of accidents.

Personal protective equipment

IMPORTANT!
Incorrect or careless use of a hedge trimmer can turn it into
a dangerous tool that can cause serious or even fatal injury.
It is extremely important that you read and understand the
contents of this operator's manual.
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.
