Hints for optimum use
General
In order to achieve optimum cutting results, only cut dry
grass.
Trimming
Gently swing the trimmer from side to side.
When cutting long grass, work in stages from the top. Take
small cuts.
Keep the tool away from hard objects and delicate plants.
Cutting line will wear faster and require more feeding if the
cutting is done along pavements or other abrasive
surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut.
If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load.
Edging
Optimum cutting results are achieved on edges deeper than
50 mm.
Do not use the tool to create edges. To create edges,
use an edging spade.
To make a closer cut, slightly tilt the tool.
Replacement spools of cutting line are available from your
Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6481).
Unplug the tool.
Keep the tabs (18) depressed and remove the spool cover
(19) from the housing (7).
Remove the empty spool (20) from the housing.
Remove any dirt and grass from the spool cover and
housing.
Take the new spool and push it onto the boss in the
housing. Rotate the spool slightly until it is seated.
Unclip the end of one of the cutting lines and guide the
line into the eyelets(21). The line should protrude approx.
11 cm from the spool cover.
Align the tabs (18) on the spool cover with the cut outs
(22) in the housing.

into place.

blade (23), cut them off so that they just reach the blade.
