WARNING!

 Read all instructions. Failure to follow all the instructions listed

below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term "power tool" 

in all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool 

or battery operated (cordless) power tool.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

1) Work area

• Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas can lead to 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 th

dust or fumes.

• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can

cause a loss of control.

2) 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 cable. Never use the cable for carrying, pulling or unplugging the

power tool. Keep the cable away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.

Damaged or entangled cables increase the risk of electric shock.

• If the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by an approved Cobra

service agent.

• When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cable suitable for

outdoor use. Use of a cable 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.

• Have  your  tool  repaired  by  an  approved  Cobra  service  agent  This  power  tool

complies with relevant safety requirements. To avoid danger, electrical appliances

must only be repaired by qualified personnel using original spare parts; otherwise

this may result in considerable injury to the user.

3)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 o

drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools

 

may result in serious personal injury.

• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as a

dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used whenever

conditions require will reduce personal injuries.

• Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the ‘off’ position before plugging

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Cont.)

in. 

Do not c

arry power tools with your finger on the switch or plugg

ed

 in 

with the 

switch in the 'On' position

. This

 

may cause an accident.

• Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench

or 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 these devices

can reduce dust related hazards.

4)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 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 sticking 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 stick and are easier to control.

• Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these

instructions, and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool,

taking into account the working conditions o ̀ the work to be performed. Use of

the power tool for operations different from intended use could lead to a

hazardous situation.

5)Service

• Have your power tool serviced by a Cobra service agent using only identical

replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

OPERATION  (Cont.)

5. After cutting the sides proceed to the top.

6. When cutting wide hedges with the cutting area in

sight move the cutting blade lightly through the

cutting surface in a sweeping motion following the

shape of the hedge or shrub. A slight tilt downwards

of the cutting blade in the direction of motion is

recommended for optimum cutting performance.

7. Move the 

trimmer

 with slow motion forward when

cutting higher hedge and the cutting area out of sight

8. Do not rush and do not attempt to cut too much with

one stroke of the cutting blade.

9. Cut in a number of stages if the area being cut is

particularly long to achieve a better result; smaller

cuttings will allow for easy composting.

NOTE: When shaping it is advisable to achieve a 

trapezoidal shape. A trapezoidal cut corresponds to the 

natural growth of plants and results in optimal hedge 

growth, as it will expose more light to the lower end of 

the hedge.

Tips for Using this Pole Hedge Trimmer 

Length adjustment

1. Loosen the lower locking sleeve (7).

2. Push the pole (9) and pole extension (6) towards

soon as you feel a resistance!

Extend the extension only to the length required to reach the hedges being trimmed! 

Do not attempt to use the product at a length which does not allow you to

 achieve 

proper footing and balance at all times!
