General safety instructions for power tools
WARNING! Read all safety directions and instructions.
Omissions in compliance with safety directions and instructions can cause electrical shock, fire, and/or severe injuries.
Retain all safety directions and instructions for future use.
Retain all safety directions and instructions for future use. The term “Power Tools” used in the safety instructions refers to mains-operated power tools (with power cord) and to battery-operated power tools (without power cord).
1) WORK AREA SAFETY
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gas-es or dust. Power tools create sparks that may ignite dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) ELECTRICAL SAFETY
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. The use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location s unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3) PERSONAL SAFETY
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired under the influence of drugs alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention white operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hats, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting.
Ensure the switch is in the off position before connecting to a power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. The use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4) POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.Any power tool that cannot be con-trolled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjust -menus, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accident- tally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e)Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the power tools operation If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less Iikely to bind and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
5) CAREFUL HANDLING AND USE OF
a) Charge the batteries only in chargers that are recommended by the manufacturer. Risk of fire if charger that is suitable for a specific type of battery is used with other batteries.
b) In the power tools, use only the batteries designed for the purpose. The use of other batteries may result in injuries and risk of fire.
c) Keep the unused battery away from paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws, and other small metal objects, which could cause bridging of the contacts. A short circuit be- tween the battery contacts may cause burns or fire
d) If used incorrectly, liquid may leak from the battery. Avoid contact with this. In the event of accidental contact, rinse off with water. If the liquid gets into the eyes, seek medical assistance.’ leaking battery fluid may
cause skin irritations or burns.
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Special Safety Directions for the cordless grass & shrub trimmer
1) SPECIAL SAFETY DIREC-TIONS FOR HEDGE TRIM-MERS
a) Keep all body parts away from the blade. Do not attempt to remove clippings while the blade is operating or to hold on to mate-rial which is to be cut. Only remove trapped clippings when the tool is switched off. One moment of carelessness in the usage of the hedge trimmer can lead to severe injury.
b) Carry the hedge trimmer at the handle with an idle blade. Always pull on the protective cover during transport and storage of the hedge trimmer. Careful handling of the tool reduces the risk of injury from the blade.
c) Hold the power tool only on the insulated handle surfaces, as the cutting blade may come into contact with concealed power cables. Contact between the cutting blade and a live cable may render metallic components live and result in an electric shock.
d) Before the work, search the hedge for concealed objects, e.g. cable etc. To avoid damaging the equipment.
e) Hold the hedge trimmer correctly, e.g. with both hands on the handles, if there are two handles. Loss of control of the equipment may result in injuries.
f) Wear suitable clothing and work clothes when working with the equipment. Do not hold the equipment by the cutting blade or lift it on the cutting blade. Contact with the cutting blade can cause injuries.
2) FURTHER SAFETY DIRECTIONS

b) Take care that you do not injure your hands and feet with the cutting elements. c) Remove the power supply unit before working with the equipment. Do not use extension cables. The power supply unit is to be used only in enclosed spaces. Water entry increases the risk of electric shock. d) Do not use the shrub cutter in combination with the telescopic shaft. There is a risk of cut wounds. e) The tool is designed to trim hedges. Do not use the tool to cut branches, hardwood, or others. To avoid damaging the equipment.
f) Do not attempt to dislodge a blocked/trapped blade before switching the tool off. There is a risk of injury.
g) Always switch off the tool remove the battery (if applicable)
– if you leave the tool unsupervised
– before removing jams
– before control- maintenance
– or cleaning tasks
– if you have come into contact with a foreign object
– whenever the machine starts to vibrate uncontrollably
How to avoid accidents and injuries.
