A6481). u Keep the tabs (26) on the spool cover (27) depressed and remove the spool cover from the housing (12). u Remove the empty spool (28) from the housing. u Remove any dirt and grass from the housing. u Take the new spool and unwind approx. 12 cm of cutting line. u Feed the cutting line through the eyelet (29). u Push the spool onto the drive shaft (30) and rotate it slightly until it is seated. Make sure that the cutting line is not trapped under the spool and that 10-12 cm of cutting line protrudes from the housing. u Align the tabs on the spool cover with the holes in the housing. u Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps into place. Warning! If the cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming blade (10), cut it off so that it just reaches the blade.

Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc. Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual risks can not be avoided. These include: u Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts. u Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or accessories. u Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take regular breaks. u Impairment of hearing. u Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed when using your tool (example:- working with wood, especially oak, beech and MDF.)
Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload.
Charging the battery (fig. A)
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures below 4 C or above 40 C. Recommended charging temperature: approx. 24 C. Note: The charger will not charge a battery if the the cell temperature is below approximately 0 C or above 60 C. The battery should be left in the charger and the charger will begin to charge automatically when the cell temperature warms up or cools down. u Plug in the charger (15) and switch on at the mains. u Insert the battery (14) into the charger. Make sure that the battery is fully seated in the charger (15). The charging indicator (16) will flash continuously (slowly). The charge is complete when the charging indicator (16) lights continuously. The charger and the battery can be left connected indefinitely with the LED illuminated. The LED will change to flashing (charging) state as the charger occasionally tops off the battery charge. The charging indicator (16) will be lit as long as the battery is connected to the plugged-in charger.
Winding new line onto an empty spool (fig. F - H)
You may wind new cutting line onto an empty spool. Replacement packs of cutting line are available from your Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6170 (25 m), A6171 (40 m)). u Remove the empty spool from the tool as described above. u Remove any old cutting line from the spool (31) (fig. F). u Feed 2 cm of cutting line into one of the holes (32) in the spool as shown (fig. G).
Charge discharged batteries within 1 week. Battery life will be greatly diminished if stored in a discharged state.
Setting the tool to trimming or edging mode (fig. L - N)
Charging indicators If the charger detects a problem with the battery, the charging indicator (16) will flash at a fast rate. Proceed as follows: u Re-insert the battery (14). u If the charging indicators continues flashing at a fast rate, use a different battery to determine if the charging process works properly. u If the replaced battery charges correctly, the original battery is defective and should be returned to a service centre for recycling. u If the new battery gives the same indication as the original battery, take the charger to be tested at an authorised services centre. Note: It may take as long as 15 minutes to determine that the battery is defective. If the battery is too hot of too cold, the LED will aternatley blink fast and slow, one flash at each speed and repeat.

The tool can be used in trimming mode as shown in fig. L or in edging mode to trim overhanging grass along lawn edges and flower beds as shown in fig. M. Trimming mode (fig. L & N) For trimming, the trimmer head should be in the position shown in fig. L. If it is not: u While holding the secondary handle with one hand, take the collar (7) in the other hand as shown (fig. L). u Push the collar in the direction of the trimmer head and rotate it counterclockwise until the trimmer head engages in the trimming position (fig. N). u Release the collar. u Set the edge guide (11) to the retracted position. Edging mode (fig. M & N) For edging, the trimmer head should be in the position shown in fig. M. If it is not: u While holding the secondary handle with one hand, take the collar (7) in the other hand as shown (fig. M). u Push the collar in the direction of the trimmer head and rotate it clockwise until the trimmer head engages in the edging position (fig. N). u Release the collar. u Set the edge guide (11) to the retracted position.
Adjusting the position of the secondary handle (fig. I)
The secondary handle (4) can be adjusted to provide optimum balance and comfort. u Let the guard (9) rest on the ground. u Slacken the handle knob (5). u Move the handle into the desired position. u Securely tighten the handle knob.
Adjusting the height (fig. J)
Hints for optimum use (fig. L)
Trimming u Hold the tool as shown in fig. L. u Gently swing the trimmer from side to side as shown in fig. L. u When cutting long grass, work in stages from the top. u Keep the tool away from hard objects and delicate plants. u If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load. Edging Optimum cutting results are achieved on edges deeper than 50 mm. u Do not use the tool to create edges. To create edges, use an edging spade. u Guide the tool as shown in fig. L. Keep the edge guide against the lawn edge. u To make a closer cut, slightly tilt the tool. General u In order to achieve optimum results, only cut dry grass. u If possible, keep the battery connected to the charger and the charger plugged in whenever the tool is not in use.
The telescopic shaft (35) allows you to set the tool to a comfortable height. u Loosen the collar (6). u To increase the height, slide the shaft out. u To reduce the height, slide the shaft in. u Tighten the collar.
Switching on and off (fig. K)
For your safety, this tool is equipped with a double switching system. This system prevents starting the tool inadvertently. Switching on u Push the lock-off button (2) backward using your thumb and at the same time squeeze the on/off switch (1). u Release the lock-off button. Switching off u Release the on/off switch (1). Warning! Never attempt to lock a switch in the on position.

Maintenance

Your Black & Decker tool has been designed to operate over a long period of time with a minimum of maintenance. Continuous satisfactory operation depends upon proper tool care and regular cleaning. Your charger does not require any maintenance apart from regular cleaning. Warning! Before performing any maintenance on the tool, remove the battery from the tool. Unplug the charger before cleaning it. u After use disconnect the battery and check the tool for any damage. u Regularly clean the ventilation slots in your tool and charger using a soft brush or dry cloth. u Regularly clean the motor housing using a damp cloth. Do not use any abrasive or solvent-based cleaner. u Regularly clean the cutting line and spool using a soft brush or dry cloth. u Regularly use a blunt scraper to remove grass and dirt from the underneath of the guard.

Lift the spool approx. 6 mm and pull the cutting line until it protrudes 10-12 cm from the housing. If insufficient cutting line is left on the spool, install a new spool of cutting line as instructed above. u Push the spool back into place and rotate it slightly until it is seated. u Align the tabs on the spool cover with the holes in the housing. u Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps securely into place. u If the cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming blade, cut it off so that it just reaches the blade. If the automatic line feed still does not work, try the following suggestions: u Carefully clean the spool housing. u Remove the spool and check if the lever can move freely. u Remove the spool and unwind the cutting line, then wind it on neatly again as described above. Replace the spool as instructed.

Spool is jammed

Storage
When the tool will not be used for several months, ideally leave the battery connected to the charger. Otherwise proceed as follows: u Fully charge the battery. u Remove the battery from the tool. u Store the tool and battery in a secure and dry location.
