How the automatic line feed works (F) 1. When initially switching on the trimmer, a small length of line is fed out. 2. A clattering noise will be heard when the two nylon lines hit the line cutter. DO NOT BE ALARMED this is quite normal. After approximately 5 seconds the line will be cut to the correct length and the noise will reduce as the motor reaches full speed. Make sure the motor is up to full speed before trimming or edging. 3. If the noise of the nylon line being cut cannot be heard, more line will need to be fed out. 4. To feed more line, it is first necessary to to allow the motor to stop completely, then re-start, allowing the motor to reach full speed. 5. Repeat step 4. until you hear the lines hitting against the cutter. (Do not repeat this procedure more than 6 times) 6. If problems are experienced with the automatic line feed refer to Fault Finding Chart.

Thank you for purchasing a E.C.O.P.I. product. With proper operation and maintenance it will provide you with years of service. WARNING: - before using this machine every operator should familiarise themselves with the entire contents of this manual, paying particular attention to the safety instructions.
1) Familiarise yourself with all the controls on the trimmer before attempting to operate it. 2) Always switch the machine off and remove plug from mains before changing the cutter head, adjusting, cleaning or if the cable is entangled or damaged, or when leaving the product unattended. 3) Remember the head continues to rotate for a short period after it is switched off.


4) Always check the power supply cable for signs of damage or wear before connection. Do not use if damaged or worn. 5) If damage occurs during usage, do not touch the cable, but immediately switch the machine off and disconnect the plug from the mains socket. 6) Always keep the cutting head away from the supply cable during operation. 7) Never carry the trimmer by the power cable. 8) Never jerk the cable to separate the connector. 9) Keep the supply cable away from heat sources, oils and sharp edges.


10) Wear close fitting and protective clothing including long trousers. We recommend rubber gloves and rubber footwear for outdoor use. 11) Always wear safety glasses with a good fit or a face shield. 12) Never work barefoot or wearing open sandals.
13) 14) 15) 16) 17) 18) 19) Use the trimmer only as described in this manual. Check the machine and cable for signs of damage regularly. Never use the machine if the guard is damaged or without the guard fitted in place. Do not switch the machine on when it is upside down. Only switch the machine on when your hands and feet are well away from the head. Ensure you maintain a firm footing at all times. Check the area to be worked in is clear of any debris such as small stones, sticks, etc. These may be projected by the revolving nylon line causing injury to yourself or others or damaging property. Do not use your trimmer in the rain or allow it (or the cable) to get wet. Only use the trimmer in good daylight conditions. Do not use the trimmer when tired or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Do not use the trimmer near other people, especially children or pets. If anyone approaches you, stop the trimmer. Never allow children to operate this trimmer. Store the trimmer out of reach of children. Never use wire or metal re-enforced line. Work in a line across slopes and take care when turning. Unplug and check the machine carefully in case of sudden change in vibration or noise pattern. 1

1) Current The trimmer is suitable for AC supply only. 2) Voltage Ensure the rating marked on your machine is correct for your supply. 3) Plugs We recommend the use of PVC or rubber covered plugs and connectors. 4) Power Point The machine must be connected to a power point and not a light socket. 5) Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCB) For increased safety, we strongly recommend that the electrical power to the machine be supplied through a high sensitivity RCB. RCBs are designed to give additional personal protection against harmful electric shock should a fault occur. RCB devices to fit into household sockets can be obtained from good electrical stores. 6) Extension Cables (for models without wired-in cable) The electrical supply on your machine is fitted with a male connector to facilitate the use of an extension cable system. Ensure you use an extension cable fitted with the appropriate splashproof female connector and intended for outdoor usage. If in any doubt contact your dealer. This machine is double insulated and therefore needs only a 2-core cable. You can fit up to 40 metres of 1.0 mm2 (2-core) circular cables without affecting product performance. The male connector already attached to the supply cable inside your machine is designed to be non-rewirable. Please return to your dealer if any maintenance is needed to this.
We strongly recommend the use of a splashproof extension cable intended for outdoor use fitted with both a moulded plug and moulded connector. If an appliance or extension cord is fitted with a non-rewirable plug which does not fit standard socket outlets in the home, it should be cut off and an appropriate three pin plug fitted in accordance with the instructions below. WARNING: Never wire an extension cable with anything other than the correct female connector and a 13A BS1363A approved plug with a 13 amp fuse. Never wire a male connector to your extension cable and never wire an extension cable with a plug of any kind at both ends of the cable. This is very dangerous and results in the pins being live which may cause a fatal electric shock.


If you are competent to do this, proceed as follows. If in doubt, contact a qualified electrician. Cut off the plug and Fit a BS or ASTA approved plug Earth E dispose of it safely. A plug with bared wires is Fit a extremely hazardous, Connect blue recommended fuse. to N/Neutral potentially lethal, if engaged Connect in a live socket outlet. Brown Extension cables contain to L/Live 230 Volts only two wires which are coloured for easy Never use a light socket Make sure that the outer recognition and these colours or a letter sheath protrudes through will be marked at the connection points the clamp and is held firmly of most good quality plugs. Attach the Brown wire (Live) to the connection in the plug marked L/Live. Attach the Blue wire (Neutral) to the connection in the plug marked N/Neutral. WARNING: Do not make any connection to the earth terminal of the plug marked E or #. If the cable or plug is damaged you must unplug from the mains before checking. If a fuse cover is required, ensure it is fitted.


Each of the two wires leading into the female connector should be connected to either side of the terminal block. It does not matter which way round they are positioned. Before refitting the top cover of the mains plug, or outer casing of the female connector, make sure that the cable clamp is holding the outer sheath of the cable firmly. Wiring an extension cable directly into the machine should only be carried out by an Authorised Service Dealer. Should the cable on your machine become damaged or need replacing, please return your machine to your dealer. 2

Fig. 2-1 1. Position the motor housing with string head carrier facing up. 2. Slide debris shield over motor housing as shown. Fig. 2-2 3. Align edging guide with mating grooves and push firmly in the direction shown until an audible snap is heard. NOTE: Be certain that edging guide is oriented as shown. Once edging guide, motor housing and debris shield are mated the connection is permanent and cannot be removed without a special tool.


Turn off the machine and disconnect the plug from power supply. Wait until nylonline has come to a complete stop. Pict. 2-3 Press both press-buttons 1 and lift off the cover 2. Pict. 2-4 Replace the empty spool 3 by inserting each line end through the eyelets as shown. Secure the spool with a slight turn to ensure correct position in the base plate.

Fig. 4-1 - Cord Retainer WARNING: Hook the extension cord around the cord retainer to help prevent disconnection or cable connection stress during usage. Always hold the product off the ground when starting. Fig. 4-2 - Mower Trimming For normal trimming, swing the head from side to side without tilting the string head. Keep the string head at same level for an even finish. Fig. 4-3 - Close Trimming Tilt the stringhead to the left for close trimming. Using the left side of the stringhead will also tend to eject the grass or debris away from the operator. Fig. 4-4 - Scalping The further the stringhead is tilted, the closer the cut. Take extra care for flying debris when doing this. Fig. 4-5 - Edging The head can be twisted to the vertical position to edge around lawns, flower beds or pathways for a neater finish. Hold the machine to your left to ensure debris is projected away from you. WARNING: Only cut with the tip of the line. This is the most effective way to cut. Take special care not to allow line to curl around mesh fencing or to rub hard against abrasive surfaces such as walls. This will cause excessive line wear or line breakage. Fig. 4-6 - Do not use the trimmer to sweep debris. Fig. 4-7 - Do not attempt to feed line bumping the head on the ground.


After usage, disconnect from the mains supply and clean dirt and debris from the cutter line area. This will prolong motor life by maintaining adequate airflow to cool the motor and ensures the line head continues to snap on and off smoothly. Inspect the cutter line head for parts that may be chipped, cracked or damaged as these could fly away and cause serious injury. Replace damaged parts immediately. Use only genuine replacement parts. Any other maintenance work should be carried out by an authorised Service Agent only. Check the product and cable regularly for visible signs of damage or wear. Check that all fasteners and moving parts are secure. Consult an Authorised Service Dealer if in doubt.


If your trimmer will not start, check that all cables are connected and that the mains power is on. If it still does not work, check the fuse. If you have tried the above and your trimmer still does not work, take it to your nearest Authorised Service Dealer.
Should you find one day that your product needs replacement, or is of no further use to you, think of the protection of the environment. Service Centres will accept your old products and will dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.
