Hold your hedge trimmer in such a way
that you do not breathe in the exaust
fumes. Operate the hedge trimmer
under good visibility and daylight
conditions only.
Your hedge trimmer is a one-person
machine. Start and operate your hedge
trimmer without assistance.
To reduce the risk of injury from blade
contact, do not attempt to "drop start"
your hedge trimmer. For specific
starting instructions, see the appro-
priate section of your manual.
Work carefully. Take particular care in
slippery conditions and on slopes.
Be careful on uneven ground. Watch out
for stumps, roots, ditches or holes which
could cause you to trip or stumble.
Before you start work, examine the
hedge area for stones, fence wire, metal
or other solid objects which could
damage the cutter blades.
Place the hedge trimmer on firm ground
or other solid surface in an open area.
Maintain a good balance and secure
footing. To reduce the risk of injury from
blade contact or loss of control always
engage the starting lock before starting.
When the engine starts at starting-
throttle, engine speed will be fast
enough for the clutch to engage and
move the cutting tool.
When you pull the starter grip, don't
wrap the starter rope around your hand.
Do not allow the grip to snap back, but
guide the starter rope to rewind properly.
Failure to follow this procedure may
result in injury to hand or fingers and
may damage the starter mechanism.
