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. K.
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.
If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load.
u
Edging
Optimum cutting results are achieved on edges deeper than
50 mm.
Do not use the tool to create edges. To create edges,
u
use an edging spade.
Guide the tool as shown in fig. L.
u
To make a closer cut, slightly tilt the tool.
