Never cut through the swelling at the root of the branch as
this will slow down healing and increase the risk of fungal
Use the stop at the base of the cutting head to provide
support during cutting. This will help prevent the cutting
attachment from "jumping" on the branch.
Make an initial cut on the underside of the branch before
cutting through the branch. This will prevent tearing of the
bark, which could lead to slow healing and cause
permanent damage to the tree. The cut should not be
deeper than 1/3 of the branch thickness to prevent
jamming. Keep the chain running while you withdraw the
cutting attachment from the branch to prevent it jamming.
Use the harness to support the weight of the machine and
make it easier to handle.
Make sure you have a ﬁrm footing and that you can work
without being hampered by branches, stones and trees.
WARNING! Never activate the throttle
without having the cutting attachment in full
