    FOR ASSEMBLING WITH ELECTRIC-DRIVEN POWER

    HEAD

    WARNING

    Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure

    to follow the warnings and instructions may result in

    electric shock, re and/or serious injury.

    SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR

    FUTURE REFERENCE.

    The term “power tool’’ in the warnings refers to your

    mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated

    (cordless) power tool.

    WORK AREA SAFETY

    ■ Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark

    areas invite accidents.

    ■ Do not operate power tools in explosive

    atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable

    liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks

    which may ignite the dust or fumes.

    ■ Keep children and bystanders away while operating

    a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose

    control.

    ELECTRICAL SAFETY

    ■ 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 risk

    of electric shock.

    ■ 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.

    ■ Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.

    Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of

    electric shock.

    ■ 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.

  • Page 4:

    2

    ■ When operating a power tool outdoors, use an

    extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a

    cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric

    shock.

    ■ If operating a power tool in a damp location is

    unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)

    protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of

    electric shock.

    PERSONAL SAFETY

    ■ 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 or under the

    influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment

    of inattention while operating power tools may result in

    serious personal injury.

    ■ Use personal protective equipment. Always wear

    eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust

    mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or hearing

    protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce

    personal injuries.

    ■ Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch

    is in the off-position before connecting to 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.

    ■ 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.

    ■ Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance

    at all times. This enables better control of the power

    tool in unexpected situations.

    ■ Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or

    jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away

    from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long

    hair can be caught in moving parts.

    ■ If devices are provided for the connection of dust

    extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are

    connected and properly used. Use of dust collection

    can reduce dust-related hazards.

    ■ Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of

    tools allow you to become complacent and ignore

    tool safety principles. A careless action can cause

    severe injury within a fraction of a second.

    POWER TOOL USE AND CARE

    ■ 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.

    ■ Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn

    it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled

    with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

    ■ Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or

    the battery pack from the power tool before making

    any adjustments, changing accessories or storing

    power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce

    the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.

    ■ 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.

    ■ Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or

    binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any

    other condition that may affect the power tool’s

    operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired

    before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly

    maintained power tools.

    ■ Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly

    maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are

    less likely to bind and are easier to control.

    ■ 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.

    SERVICE

    ■ 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.

    ADDITIONAL SAFETY WARNINGS

    ■ Some regions have regulations that restrict the use of

    the product to some operation. Check with your local

    authority for advice.

    ■ Never allow children or people unfamiliar with the

    instructions to use the product. Local regulations may

    restrict the age of the operator.

    ■ Ensure before each use that all controls and safety

    devices function correctly. Do not use the product if the

    “off” switch does not stop the motor/engine.

    ■ Wear full eye and hearing protection, strong sturdy

    gloves, as well as head protection while operating the

    product. Use a face mask if operation is dusty.

    ■ Do not wear loose-fitting clothing, short trousers, or

    jewellery of any kind.

    ■ Secure long hair so it is above shoulder level to prevent

    entanglement in moving parts.

    ■ Use of hearing protection reduces the ability to hear

    warnings (shouts or alarms). The operator must pay

    extra attention to what is going on in the working area.

    ■ Operating similar tools nearby increases both the risk

    of hearing injury and the potential for other persons to

    enter your working area.

    ■ Beware of thrown, flying, or falling objects. Keep all

    bystanders, children, and pets at least 15 m away from

    work area. Stop the product if anyone enters the area.

    ■ Do not operate the product in poor lighting. The

    operator requires a clear view of the work area to

    identify potential hazards.

    ■ Keep firm footing and balance. Do not overreach.

    Overreaching can result in loss of balance and can

    increase the risk of kickback.

    ■ Do not use the product while tired, ill, or under the

  • Page 5:

    3

    influence of alcohol, drugs, or under medication.

    ■ Keep all parts of your body away from any moving part.

    ■ Inspect the product before each use. Check for correct

    operation of all controls. Check for loose fasteners,

    make sure all guards, and handles are properly and

    securely attached. Replace any damaged parts before

    use.

    ■ Do not modify the product in any way or use parts

    and accessories, which are not recommended by the

    manufacturer.

    ■ Do not let familiarity of the product allow you to become

    complacent and ignore product safety principles. A

    careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction

    of a second.

    ■ Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean, and

    free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and grasping

    surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of

    the product in unexpected situations.

    WARNING

    If the product is dropped, suffers heavy impact or begins

    to vibrate abnormally, immediately stop the product and

    inspect for damage or identify the cause of the vibration.

    Any damage should be properly repaired or replaced by

    an authorised service centre.

    FOR ASSEMBLING WITH ELECTRIC-DRIVEN POWER

    HEAD ONLY

    ■ Electrical power should be supplied via a residual

    current device (RCD) with a tripping current of not more

    than 30 mA.

    ■ If you need to use an extension cable, ensure it is

    suitable for outdoor use and has a current capacity

    sufficient to supply your product. Check it before every

    use for damage. Always uncoil it during use because

    coiled cables can overheat.

    ■ If the power cable becomes damaged, it must be

    replaced before using.

    FOR ASSEMBLING WITH BATTERY-DRIVEN POWER

    HEAD ONLY

    ■ Recharge only with the charger specified by the

    manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of

    battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with

    another battery pack.

    ■ Use products only with specically designated battery

    packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk

    of injury and re.

    PRUNER SAFETY WARNINGS

    ■ Never use the pruner when there is a possibility of

    thunderstorm or lightning. Store the pruner and/or the

    power cables safely indoors.

    ■ Ensure all guards and handles are properly fitted and

    are in good condition.

    ■ Do not start using the product until you have a clear

    work area, secure footing, and a planned retreat path

    away from the falling branches or limbs.

    ■ Beware of the emission of lubricant mist and saw dust.

    Wear mask or respirator if required.

    ■ Always hold the pruner with both hands when operating

    it. Use one hand to firmly grasp the front hand grip. Use

    the other hand to grasp the rear handle and operate

    the product.

    ■ Hold the product through the insulated gripping surfaces

    only because the saw chain may contact hidden wiring.

    Saw chains contacting a “live” wire may make exposed

    metal parts of the product “live” and could give the

    operator an electric shock.

    ■ Do not modify your product in any way or use it to power

    any attachments or devices not recommended by the

    manufacturer for your pruner.

    ■ The pruner comes with a harness. You must use it while

    operating the pruner. It will assist you to control the drop

    of the pruner after the cut is completed. It will also help

    support the weight of the product during use and while

    moving between pruning positions.

    ■ Identify the quick release mechanism and practice

    using it before you start using the product. Its correct

    use may prevent serious injury in the case of an

    emergency. Never wear additional clothing over

    the harness or otherwise restrict access to the quick

    release mechanism.

    ■ Before starting the product, make sure that the saw

    chain is not contacting any object.

    ■ An incorrectly tensioned chain can jump off the guide

    bar and could result in serious injury. Check each use

    and frequently, especially a new chain.

    ■ Turn off the product and disconnect from power supply

    or remove the battery pack. Make sure that all moving

    parts have come to a complete stop:

    ● before servicing

    ● before clearing a blockage

    ● before checking, cleaning, and working on the

    product

    ● before changing accessories

    ● after striking a foreign object

    ● whenever leaving the product unattended

    ● whenever performing maintenance

    ● whenever the product starts to vibrate abnormally

    ■ Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide

    bar touches an object, or when the wood closed in and

    pinches the saw chain in cut. Tip contact in some cases

    may cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking the

    guide bar up and back towards the operator. Pinching

    the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push

    the guide bar rapidly back towards the operator. Either

    of these reactions may cause you to lose control of

    the product, which could result in serious personal

    injury. Do not rely exclusively upon the safety devices

    built into your product. As a pruner user, you should

    take several steps to keep your cutting jobs free from

    accident or injury. Kickback is the result of tool misuse

    and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and

    can be avoided by taking proper precautions as given

    below:

    ● With a basic understanding of kickback, you can

    reduce or eliminate the element of surprise. Sudden

    surprise contributes to accidents.

  • Page 6:

    4

    ● Make sure that the area in which you are cutting

    is free from obstructions. Do not let the nose of

    the guide bar contact branch, limb or any other

    obstruction while you are operating the product.

    ● Maintain a firm grip, with both hands on the product

    and position your body and arm to allow you to resist

    kickback forces. Kickback forces can be controlled

    by the operator if proper precautions are taken. Do

    not let go of the pruner.

    ● Do not overreach. This helps prevent unintended tip

    contact and enables better control of the pruner in

    unexpected situations.

    ● Only use replacement bars and chains specified by

    the manufacturer. Incorrect replacement bars and

    chains may cause chain breakage and/or kickback.

    ● Sharpening the chain safely is a skilled task.

    Therefore, the manufacturer strongly recommends

    that a worn or dull chain is replaced with a new

    one. The part number is available in the product

    specification table in this manual.

    ■ Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Always cut

    with both feet on solid ground to prevent being pulled

    off balance.

    ■ To protect yourself from electrocution, do not operate

    within 10 m of overhead electrical lines.

    ■ Remove branches in sections. Do not operate in

    dangerous positions. Beware of falling branches or

    those which rebound after hitting the ground.

    ■ Use extreme caution when cutting small-sized brush

    and saplings because slender material may catch the

    saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull you off

    balance.

    ■ When cutting a limb that is under tension, be alert for

    spring back so that you will not be struck when tension

    in wood fibers are released.

    ■ If the cutting performance deteriorates over time,

    check if the chain teeth are sharp and clean. Replace

    with original chain (and bar) as recommended by the

    manufacturer if necessary.

    ■ If the chain and bar become pinched or trapped in high

    branches, seek advice from a professional tree service

    specialist about safe removal of the cutting means.

    WARNING

    Check that all the shaft couplings on the extension pole

    and product are securely fastened before each use and

    at frequent intervals.

    PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

    Good quality, personal protective equipment as used

    by professionals will help to reduce the risk of injury to

    the operator. The following items should be used when

    operating your product:

    ■ Safety helmet

    ■ Hearing protection

    ■ Eye and face protection

    ■ Gloves

    ■ Footwear

    OPERATION

    ■ Study the condition of the tree and branches before

    starting work. If there are signs of damage, rot, or

    decay, do not operate the product. Damaged or rotten

    branches are highly unstable. Seek the services of a

    professional tree surgeon.

    ■ Never stand under the branch to be pruned.

    ■ Pruned branches do not always fall cleanly to the

    ground. They are easily caught and deflected by

    other foliage. Ensure that a safety zone at least twice

    the length of the branch to be cut is available and

    maintained when pruning. If this is not possible, seek

    the services of a professional tree surgeon.

    ■ Ensure that the falling branch is not a danger to

    yourself, bystanders, or property including utility cables.

    ■ Never operate the product with the pole at an angle of

    greater than 60° horizontally.

    ■ Never operate the pruner with the cutting means closer

    than 10 m from overhead power lines.

    ■ Do not force the product, let the chain do the work at

    its own speed.

    ■ Do not try to cut the branch too close to the tree trunk.

    Leave about 15 cm from the trunk to the cut.

    ■ Rest the saw bar on the branch to be pruned, and push

    the saw gently forwards so that the ribbed bumper also

    contacts the branch. This method aids stability and

    cutting, and provides cleaner cuts.

    ■ Small branches that are both thin in diameter and not

    heavy can be cut with one cut using the bottom of the

    saw bar.

    ■ For larger diameter and heavier branches, where the

    branch may break or split during the cut should be cut

    first from under the branch using the top of the saw

    bar. Make this cut approximately one third of the way

    through the branch. Then make a second cut from

    above the branch using the bottom of the saw bar to

    join the first cut.

    ■ Consider pruning large branches in manageable

    sections rather than as a whole.

    ■ Never try to restart a previous cut with the chain and bar

    in the earlier cut. Always start a new cut to reduce the

    risk of kickback and potential injury.

    TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE

    ■ Clean all foreign material from the product.

    ■ Cover the saw bar with the scabbard.

    ■ Store the product in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated

    place that is inaccessible to children. Keep the product

    away from corrosive agents such as garden chemicals

    and de-icing salts. Do not store the product outdoors.

    ■ When storing the product for a long period of time

    (one month or longer), be sure that the chain is lightly

    lubricated to prevent rust.

    ■ For transportation, secure the product against

    movement or falling to prevent injury to persons or

    damage to the product.

    RISK REDUCTION

    It has been reported that vibrations from hand-held tools

    may contribute to a condition called Raynaud’s Syndrome

    in certain individuals. Symptoms may include tingling,

    numbness, and blanching of the ngers, usually apparent

    upon exposure to cold. Hereditary factors, exposure to

    cold and dampness, diet, smoking, and work practices

    are all thought to contribute to the development of these

    symptoms. There are measures that can be taken by the

    operator to possibly reduce the effects of vibration:

    ■ Keep your body warm in cold weather. When operating

    the product, wear gloves to keep the hands and wrists

    warm. It is reported that cold weather is a major factor

    contributing to Raynaud’s Syndrome.

    ■ After each period of operation, exercise to increase

    blood circulation.

    ■ Take frequent work breaks. Limit the amount of

    exposure per day.

    If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition,

    immediately discontinue use and see your physician.

    WARNING

    Injuries may be caused, or aggravated, by prolonged

    use of a tool. When using any tool for prolonged periods,

    ensure that you take regular breaks.

    ADJUSTING THE CHAIN TENSION

    1. Make sure to turn off the product before

    adjusting the chain tension. Using the

    combination wrench, loosen the bar nut of

    the drive case slightly, and then turn the

    adjusting screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

    2. On one hand, lift the tip of the bar up. On the

    other hand, check if the gap of the bar and

    chain is correct (3–4 mm). Release the tip of

    the bar, and then turn the chain tensioning

    screw 1/2 turn clockwise. Repeat until the

    gap is appropriate.

    NOTE:

    The chain tension is correct when the

    gap is about 3–4 mm. Check the chain tension

    regularly because the chain stretches when it

    heats up. A chain that is too tight will not rotate.

    Lift the tip of the bar up when loose, or re-tighten

    the bar nut.

    3. Fully tighten the bar nut and sprocket cover.

    The bar nut should have at least 4 turns after

    nger tight. The torque value is 4.5 N.m – 5.6

    N.m.

    REPLACING THE CHAIN BAR

    1. Turn off the product. Using the combination

    wrench, remove the bar nut from the drive

    case cover.

    2. Remove the bar nut, drive case cover, and

    chain bar.

    3. Prepare the chain bar. Make sure that the

    chain follows the correct direction as shown.

    4. Place the new chain bar into the bar stud so

    that the chain tensioning pin ts into the chain

    tensioning pin hole. Fit the chain over the

    sprocket and into the bar groove. The cutters

    on the top of the bar should face toward the

    bar tip, in the direction of the chain rotation.

    5. Place the drive case cover, and install the

    bar nut.

    6. Using the combination wrench, tighten the

    bar nut to nger-tight tting. The bar must be

    free to move for tension adjustment.

    7. Remove all slack from the chain by turning

    the chain tensioning screw clockwise,

    assuring that the chain seats into the bar

    groove during tensioning.

    Lift the tip of the bar up to check for sag.

    Release the tip of the bar, and turn the chain

    tensioning screw 1/2 turn clockwise. Repeat

    this process until sag does not exist.

    NOTE: Hold the tip of the bar up, and tighten

    the bar nut securely. The chain tension is correct

    when the gap is about 3–4 mm. Check the chain

    tension regularly because the chain stretches

    when it heats up. A chain that is too tight will not

    rotate. Loosen the bar nut slightly, and then turn

    the adjusting screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

    Lift the tip of the bar up, and re-tighten the bar

    nut.

    8. Fully tighten the bar nut and drive case cover

    to nger-tight tting. The bar nut should have

    at least 4 turns after nger-tight. The torque

    value is 4.5 N.m – 5.6 N.m.

    VIBRATION LEVEL

    The declared vibration value has been measured with a

    standard test method and may be used to compare one

    tool with another.

    The declared vibration value may be used in a preliminary

    assessment of exposure.

    The vibration emission during actual use of power tool can

    differ from the declared total value depending on the ways

    in which the tool is used.

    Identify safety measures to protect yourself based on an

    estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use,

    taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such

    as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is

    running idle in addition to the trigger time.
