How to Use  
How to Use your Hedgetrimmer  
1. Inspect area to be cut before each use -  
remove objects which can be thrown or  
become entangled in the cutting blades.  
2. Always keep the Hedgetrimmer in front of your  
body. Hold handle firmly with both hands and  
stand in a secure and stable position.  
3. Allow the cutting blades to reach full speed  
before entering the material to be cut.  
4. Always work going away from people and solid objects  
such as walls, large stones, trees, vehicles etc.  
5. If blade stalls, immediately stop the  
Hedgetrimmer. Disconnect the Hedgetrimmer  
from the power source and clear jammed  
debris from the cutting blades. Inspect blades  
and repair or replace as needed.  
Top Cutting  
Use a wide sweeping motion. See Fig. G. A  
slight downward tilt of the cutting blades in the  
direction of motion gives the best cutting results.  
Side Cutting  
When trimming the sides of the hedge, begin at the  
bottom and cut upwards (See Fig. H), tapering the  
hedge inward at the top. This shape will expose more  
of the hedge, resulting in more uniformed growth.
