|Only one light is flashing four times per cycle.||The machine is over load. Raise the cutting height or push slowly.|
WARNING! The charger and battery pack are specially designed to work together so do not attempt to use any other devices. Never insert or allow metallic objects into your charger or battery pack connections because of an electrical failure and hazard will occur.
- AUTOMATIC LINE FEED SYSTEM
When initially switching on the trimmer, a small length of line is fed out. A ‘clattering’ noise will be heard for a short time. This is normal and is caused by the line being cut by the line cutter. Once the line is cut to the correct length, the ‘clattering’ noise will stop and the trimmer motor will run at full speed. To feed more line, stop the trimmer completely, then restart, allowing the motor to reach full speed. Repeat this until you hear the ‘clattering’ noise of the line cutting. (Do not repeat this procedure more than 6 times)
- MANUALLY FEEDING THE LINE (See Fig. H)
Press and release manual line feed button, whilst gently pull out the lines until the lines reach the line cutter. When the required amount of line is fed out, gently pull on the second line (there is no need to press the manual line feed button again). If the line extends past the line cutter, too much line has been fed out. If too much line is fed out, remove the spool cap and rotate the spool anti-clockwise until the line is at the desired length.
Removing the Cap (See Fig. I)
Press and hold in the two latches. Pull the spool cap away from the Cutting Head. Keep the cap and spool holder clean from debris. To replace the cap, press it firmly towards the spool holder. Ensure that it is correctly connected by trying to remove it without depressing the two latches.
Changing the Line Spool (See Fig. K, L)
First, take off the cap and remove the old spool. Place new spool into cutting head. Feed one line through the eyelet, then repeat for the second line (See Fig. L). Release line from the cleat on the Spool. Reattach the cap. WARNING! Your Trimmer is designed to only use lines with a maximum diameter of 0.065”(1.65mm). Only use nylon line. IMPORTANT – Always wind the line onto the upper section of the spool first.
- 3. MANUALLY WINDING THE LINE (SEE FIG.M, N, O, P)
Take approximately 16ft (5 m) line and insert 5/8” (15 mm) of line into one of the holes in the upper section of the spool. Wind the line in the direction of the arrows on the top of the spool.
Leave approximately 3.9’’ (100 mm) of line unwound and place it into the cleat. Repeat on the lower section of the spool. Care should be taken to ensure that the line is neatly coiled on the spool. Failure to do so will impair the efficiency of the automatic line feed. Then fit the spool as described above in “Changing the Line Spool”.
STORING YOUR GRASS TRIMMER
Always remove the battery pack from your trimmer after use. To store your grass trimmer
The trimmer is provided with a hanging slot for storing the trimmer on the wall. (See Fig. Q) Store in a dry place where the trimmer and battery can be protected from damage.
Always remove the battery pack from your trimmer after use. Always check the product prior to being used for any damage. After use, disconnect the battery from the tool and check for damage. Your power tool requires no additional lubrication or maintenance. There are no user-serviceable parts in your power tool. Never use water or chemical cleaners to clean your power tool. Wipe clean with a dry cloth. Always store your power tool in a dry room temperature location. Keep the motor ventilation slots clean. Keep all working controls free of dust.
