To reduce risk of serious or fatal injury
from loss of control of the pole pruner
never attempt to operate any pole
pruner with one hand. Always hold the
pole pruner firmly with both hands.
Wrap your fingers tightly around the
control handle and shaft, keeping the
handle and shaft between your thumb
and forefinger.Keep your hands in this position to have
your pole pruner under control at all
times. Make sure the handle and shaft
are in good condition and free of
moisture, pitch, oil or grease. Place your
left hand on front handle and your right
hand on rear handle and throttle trigger.
Left handers should follow these
Do not operate your pole pruner with the
starting throttle lock engaged. Cutting
with the starting throttle lock engaged
does not permit the operator proper
control of the pole pruner or chain
speed. Always cut at full throttle.
Never touch a chain with your hand or
any part of your body when the engine is
running, even when the chain is not
rotating. The chain continues to rotate
for a short period after the throttle trigger
Do not cut any material other than wood
or wooden objects. Use your pole pruner
for limbing only. It is not designed for
felling. It is not designed for prying or
shoveling away limbs, roots or other
objects.When limbing, make sure that the saw
chain does not touch any foreign
materials such as rocks, fences, nails
and the like. Such objects may be flung
off and injure the operator or bystanders,
or damage the saw chain.
In order to keep control of your pole
pruner, always maintain a firm foothold.
Never work on a ladder, in a tree or on
any other insecure support. When
working at a height above 4.5 m (15 ft)
use a lift bucket.
For pole pruner with adjustable shaft:
Expand the shaft only as far as
necessary for the intended application.
Dont put pressure on the pole pruner
when reaching the end of a cut. The
pressure may cause the bar and rotating
chain to pop out of the cut or kerf, go out
of control and strike the operator or
some other object.
Prior to limbing, clear the working area
from interfering limbs and brush. Then,
establish a path of escape and remove
