Never touch the blades while the tool is running. Never attempt to force the blades to come to a standstill. Do not put the tool down until the blades have come to a complete standstill. Regularly check the blades for damage and wear. Do not use the tool when the blades are worn or damaged. Take care to avoid hard objects (e.g. metal wire, railings) when trimming. Should you accidentally hit any such object, immediately switch the tool off and check for any damage. Should the tool start to vibrate abnormally, immediately switch it off and check for any damage. If the tool stalls, immediately switch it off. After use, place the blade sheath supplied over the blades. Store the tool, making sure that the blade is not exposed. Always ensure that all guards are fitted when using the tool. Never attempt to use an incomplete tool or a tool with unauthorised modifications. Be aware of falling debris when cutting the higher slides of a hedge. While operating the machine always be sure of a safe and secure operating position especially when using steps or a ladder.

Electrical safety

Your charger has been designed for a specific mains voltage. Always check that the mains voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate. Your charger is double insulated in accordance with EN 60335; therefore no earth wire is required.
Read the instruction manual before use. Warning! The cutting elements continue to rotate after the motor is switched off. Wear safety glasses or goggles when operating this tool.
This appliance is not intended for use by young or infirm persons without supervision. Children must be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised Black & Decker Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard.


1. On/off switch 2. Lock-off button 3. Blade release button
4. Shear blade (GL602/GL605) 5. Trim blade (GS721/GL605)
Release the lock-off button.


Warning! Avoid accidentally switching the tool on during assembly. GL605 - Fitting and removing the blade (fig. A) The shear blade (4) has been designed for trimming grass and weeds. The trim blade (5) has been designed for trimming hedges and shrubs. N To fit the blade, line it up with the receptacle on the tool. Slide the blade into the receptacle and push until the blade snaps into place. N To remove the blade, push the two release buttons (3) simultaneously while at the same time pulling the blade out of the receptacle.
Switching off N Release the switch (1). Warning! Never attempt to lock the switch in the on position. Hints for optimum use Trimming grass N In order to achieve optimum cutting results, only cut dry grass. N Hold the tool as shown in fig. fig. C1 - C3. Keep your other hand well away from the blade. Maintain a stable working position so that you do not slip. Do not overreach. N When cutting long grass, work in stages from the top. Take small cuts. N Keep the tool away from hard objects and delicate plants. N If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load. N To make a closer cut, slightly tilt the tool. Trimming hedges N Slightly tilt the tool (up to 15 relative to the line of cut) so that the blade tips point slightly towards the hedge (fig. D1). This will cause the blades to cut more effectively. N Start by trimming the top of the hedge. Hold the tool at the desired angle and move it steadily along the line of cut (fig. D2). The double-sided blade allows you to cut in either direction. N In order to obtain a very straight cut, stretch a piece of string along the length of the hedge at the desired height. Use the string as a guideline, cutting just above it. N In order to obtain flat sides, cut upwards with the growth. Younger stems move outwards when the blade cuts downwards, causing shallow patches in the hedge. N Take care to avoid any foreign objects. Especially avoid hard objects such as metal wire and railings, as these could damage the blades. N Regularly oil the blades. Guidelines for trimming (UK & Ireland) N Trim hedges and shrubs with seasonal leaves (new leaves every year) in June and October. N Trim evergreens in April and August. N Trim conifers and other fast growing shrubs every six weeks from May until October. Guidelines for trimming (Australia & New Zealand) N Trim hedges and shrubs with seasonal leaves (new leaves every year) in December and March. N Trim evergreens in September and February.

Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload. Charging the battery (fig. B) The battery needs to be charged before first use and whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were easily done before. When charging the battery for the first time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an 80% charge. After several charge and discharge cycles, the battery will attain full capacity. The battery may become warm while charging; this is normal and does not indicate a problem. Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures below 4 C or above 40 C. Recommended charging temperature: approx. 24 C. Insert the charger plug (6) into the charger connector (7) at the rear of the tool. N Plug the charger into a mains outlet. Switch on at the mains. The battery can be left connected to the charger indefinitely. N When you want to use the tool, press the tab (8) to take the charger connector from the tool and unplug the charger.
To maximise the lifetime of the battery, it is recommended to keep the battery connected to the charger whenever the tool is not in use. When the battery is full, the power consumption of the charger is negligible. Switching on and off Switching on N Push the lock-off button (2) backward using your thumb and at the same time squeeze the trigger switch (1).
Trim conifers and other fast growing shrubs every six weeks from October until March.
