Preparing to use your lawn trimmer
Before you trim, you need to mow the lawn. Start the lawn care with your lawn mower and cleanly mow all areas so that only those areas that it can't reach remain.
Before you use your trimmer, we recommend that checking that it works properly. The motor head and the thread spool must move smoothly. If they are blocked or braked, you will need to find the cause and fix it. There should also be enough thread wound on the spool. In case the spool becomes empty or damaged during work, we recommend that you have a spare spool stored in your workshop. After all, nothing is more annoying than having to stop work early because of a broken blade. Next, check the power supply. If you are using a petrol lawn trimmer, make sure that the petrol and oil tanks are full. If you want to cut the grass with a cordless lawn trimmer, make sure that the battery is fully charged. If you want to mow with an electric lawn trimmer with a cord, make sure that the cord is long enough to cover the entire area.
In addition to the technology, you should ensure that you wear the right protective clothing when working with your lawn trimmer, as with any machine with rotating tools. Many accidents when gardening are caused by the careless and improper use of equipment and tools – mostly unprotected parts of the body are affected. Therefore, make sure you wear suitable clothing Eye and hearing protection and long, ideally cut-resistant trousers are standard equipment when working with your lawn trimmer – as are sturdy shoes with a non-slip sole with a deep profile. It is best to wear close-fitting clothing that covers all parts of the body while allowing sufficient freedom of movement.
Finally, check the area you want to trim. Pick up any toys, small stones and similar objects to reduce the risk of injury from objects that might get caught up. This will prevent them from being stuck in the cutting tool and causing damage.
