What kind of protective gear should I use?
Using this machine requires clothing that protects the legs and face from objects that could unexpectedly be thrown out during operation. It is always recommended to wear long trousers and a protective visor.
What kind of maintenance should I carry out?
To ensure that the machine is functioning correctly and to maximise its lifespan, we recommend regular (based on the frequency and intensity of use) cleaning of the battery housing and contacts as well as the cutting head (trimmer head and guard) – parts where a lot of dirt constantly builds up.
Remember that it is important to consult the user and maintenance manual for details of each of these tasks.
Which type of grass and shrubs can you work on?
This machine can work on domestic lawns, small outside areas, but it is especially useful for trimming the edges, including more marginal ones, which often cannot be reached with other types of applications. It is recommended not to allow the grass to grow too high in order to avoid forcing the machine to work too intensely, which would mean excessively slow operation. As it only has a trimmer head, it cannot be used on shrubs.
How do you adjust the length of the line?
The machine is fitted with a head with an automatic line feeder. This means that simple operation and rotation of the head causes the line to feed out. Its length is adjusted automatically, by cutting itself on the blade located at the edge of the guard.
For further information, see the instruction manual.
The line no longer feeds out from the head. What might have happened?
The line failing to feed out may be associated with two main factors. The first, and the most likely, is that the line might be all used up and should therefore be replaced with a new reel. There is also the possibility that the line within the head has accidentally become caught in its own windings, and is preventing the end from freely feeding out through the holes. In this case, simply open the head and re-spool the line correctly inside.
These causes and solutions normally cover the majority of cases, but there may be a variety of others, associated with the methods of use, the surface treated and the weather conditions.
Note that consulting the user manual, in the section relating to the cutting head, may provide useful information for identifying the nature of the problem.
