GENERAL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL
TOOLS
• AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT - Don't use hedge trimmers in damp or wet
locations.
• DON'T USE IN RAIN.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY - All visitors should be kept at a safe distance from the work
area.
• DRESS PROPERLY - Don't wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught in
moving parts. Use of rubber gloves and substantial footwear is recommended when
working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• USE SAFETY GLASSES - Also use face or dustmask if operation is dusty.
• GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI) protection should be provided on
the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for the hedge trimmer. Receptacles are available
having built-in GFCI protection and may be used for this measure of safety.
• USE RIGHT APPLIANCE - Do not use appliance for any job except that for which it is
intended.
• EXTENSION CORD. To reduce the risk of electric shock use only with an extension
cord intended for outdoor use, such as SW-A, S0W-A, STW-A, STOW-A, SJW-A,
SJOW-A, SJTW-A or SJTOW-A. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord be sure it is heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in line voltage
resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows the correct size
to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the
next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
