SERVICE
23. Tool service must be performed only by
qualified repair personnel. Service or main-
tenance performed by unqualified personnel
could result in a risk of injury.
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD: Make sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating. Table 1 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 num-
ber, the heavier the cord.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES

DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product (gained from
repeated use) replace strict adherence to trimmer safety rules. If
you use this tool unsafely or incorrectly, you can suffer serious
personal injury.
1. Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces
when performing an operation where the
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or
its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will
make exposed metal parts of the tool "live"
and shock the operator.
2. Wear hearing protection during extended
period of operation.
3. Handle the bits very carefully.
