This is a one-time operation only. Never operate the vacuum with only the upper vacuum tube fitted. The risk of personal injury is significantly increased if you fail to follow this warning. BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE ■■ 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 power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire ■■ When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery pack terminals together may cause burns or a fire. ■■ Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery pack; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery pack may cause irritation or burns. ■■ Do not use a battery pack or tool that is damaged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behaviour resulting in fire, explosion, or risk of injury. ■■ Do not expose a battery pack or tool to fire or excessive temperatures. Exposure to fire or excessive temperature above 130°C may cause explosion. ■■ Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire. OPERATION ■■ Operate the product only at reasonable hours – not early in the morning or late at night when people might be disturbed. ■■ Never operate the product in an explosive atmosphere. 2 Downloaded from www.manualsdb.com manuals search engine ■■ Avoid using the product in bad weather conditions especially when there is a risk of lightning. ■■ Do not operate in poor lighting. The operator requires a clear view of the work area to identify potential hazards. ■■ Keep bystanders, children and pets 15 m away from the area of operation. Stop the product if anyone enters the area. ■■ Operating similar tools nearby increases both the risk of hearing injury and the potential for other persons to enter your working area. ■■ Always be sure of your footing on slopes. Walk, never run. ■■ Keep all parts of your body away from any moving part. Rotating impeller blades can cause severe injury. Stop the product and ensure impeller blades have stopped rotating before removing the tubes, opening or removing debris bag. ■■ Keep proper footing and balance. Do not overreach. Overreaching can result in loss of balance. ■■ Never run the product without the proper equipment attached, or without safety devices, such as debris collector, in place. ■■ Do not modify the product in any way or use parts and accessories that are not recommended by the manufacturer. ￼ 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. ■■ To reduce the risk of injury associated with contacting rotating parts, always stop the product and remove the battery pack. Make sure all moving parts have come to a complete stop before: –– leaving the product unattended –– clearing blockages or unclogging chute –– checking, cleaning, or working on the product –– inspecting the product after striking a foreign object –– if the product starts to vibrate abnormally (inspect immediately) ■■ Immediately switch off and remove the battery pack in the event of accident or breakdown. Do not operate the product again until it has been fully checked by an authorised service centre. ■■ The product is provided with a cruise control lever near the trigger. Cruise control sets the speed at a convenient level to provide enough power to achieve the task. Low running speed will help reduce noise and vibration. Cruise control helps reduce operator fatigue. ■■ Press the turbo boost to increase air flow to the maximum velocity. The turbo boost will override the cruise control feature. The blower will return to the previously selected speed when the button is released. ￼ WARNING Your blower/vacuum may be supplied with a harness. Carefully adjust the harness to comfortably help to support the weight of the product. 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. BLOWER SAFETY WARNINGS ■■ Wear a face filter mask in dusty conditions to reduce the risk of injury associated with the inhalation of dust. ■■ Slightly dampen surfaces in dusty conditions. ■■ Do not use the product near open windows. ■■ Use the full blower nozzle extension so that the air stream can work close to the ground and perform effectively. ■■ Do not point the blower nozzle in the direction of people or pets. ■■ Never place objects inside the blower tubes. ■■ Do not place product on top of or near loose debris. Debris can be sucked into the intake vent, resulting in possible damage to the product. VACUUM SAFETY WARNINGS ￼ WARNING Never operate the vacuum with only the upper vacuum tube fitted. Failure to follow this warning increases the risk of personal injury. NOTE: Without the lower vacuum tube fitted, it is much easier to reach up inside the tube towards the fan blade. ■■ Do not operate the vacuum without the debris collector bag assembly installed. Flying debris could cause serious injury. Make sure that the debris collector bag is in good condition and completely closed before operating the product. ■■ Move the vacuum from side to side along the outer edge of the debris. To avoid clogging, do not place the vacuum tube directly into the debris pile. ■■ Hold the motor higher than the inlet end of the vacuum tube. ■■ To avoid serious injury to the operator or damage to the product, do not try to vacuum up rocks, broken glass, bottles, or similar objects. ■■ Avoid situations that could cause fire in the debris collector bag. Do not operate the product near an open flame. Do not vacuum up warm ash from fireplaces and barbecue pits. Do not vacuum up discarded cigars or cigarettes unless the cinders are completely cool. ADDITIONAL BATTERY SAFETY WARNINGS ￼ WARNING To reduce the risk of fire, personal injury, and product damage due to a short circuit, never immerse your tool, battery pack or charger in fluid or allow a fluid to flow inside them. Corrosive or conductive fluids, such as seawater, certain industrial chemicals, and bleach or bleach-containing products, etc., can cause a short circuit. TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE ■■ Stop the product, remove the battery pack, and allow it to cool down before storing or transporting. ■■ Clean all foreign materials from the product. Store the product in a cool, dry, and wellventilated place that is inaccessible to children. Keep away from corrosive agents, such as garden chemicals and de-icing salts.

If it is necessary to remove the fan or mulching blades, bring the product to an authorised service centre. ■■ Reinstall the tubes and the debris collector bag before installing the battery pack and starting the product. RESIDUAL RISK Even when the product is used as prescribed, it is still impossible to completely eliminate certain residual risk factors. The following hazards may arise in use, and the operator should pay special attention to avoid the following: ■■ Injury caused by vibration –– Always use the right tool for the job, use designated handles and use the lowest speed necessary to achieve the task. ■■ Hearing injury caused by exposure to noise –– Wear ear protection and limit exposure. ■■ Injury from flying objects from the blower tube airflow if the debris collection bag is not fitted or is damaged –– Wear eye protection at all times. RISK REDUCTION It has been reported that vibrations from handheld tools may contribute to a condition called Raynaud’s Syndrome. Symptoms may include tingling, numbness, and blanching of the fingers, 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. ■■ 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 you take regular breaks. Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste. Please recycle where facilities exist. Check with your local authority or retailer for recycling advice.
