Hints for optimum use
General
In order to achieve optimum cutting results, only cut dry
u
grass.
Trimming
Hold the tool as shown in fig. D.
u
Gently swing the trimmer from side to side.
u
When cutting long grass, work in stages from the top. Take
u
small cuts.
Keep the tool away from hard objects and delicate plants.
u
Cutting line will wear faster and require more feeding if the
u
cutting is done along pavements or other abrasive
surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut.
As you use the trimmer, the string will get shorter due to
u
wear. Gently bump the unit on the ground whilst running
and the line will feed.
If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load.
u
Fitting a new spool of cutting line (fig. E - F)
Replacement spools of cutting line are available from your
Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6226).
Keep the tabs (12) depressed and remove the spool cover
u
(13) from the housing (9).
Remove the empty spool (14) from the spool housing.
u
Remove any dirt and grass from the spool cover and
u
housing.
Take the new spool and unwind approximately 10 cm of
u
cutting line.
Feed the cutting line through the eyelet (15).
u
Push the spool onto the drive shaft (16) and rotate it
u
slightly until it is seated. Make sure that the cutting line is
not trapped under the spool and that 10 cm of cutting line
protrudes from the housing.
Align the tabs (12) on the spool cover with the holes in the
u
housing (15).
Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps securely
u
into place.
Warning! If the cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming
blade (7), cut it off so that it just reaches the blade.
