The correct angle for the cutting attachment is parallel to the ground.This string trimmer allows you to rest the bump knob on the ground for operating more comfortably.

Do not force the trimmer. Allow the very tip of the line to do the cutting (especially along walls). Cutting with more than the tip will reduce cutting efficiency and may overload themotor.The cutting height is determined by the distance of the cutting line from the lawn surface.Grass over 8 inches (200 mm) should be cut by working from top to the bottom in small increments to avoid premature line wear or motor drag.Slowly move the trimmer into and out of the area being cut, maintaining the trimmer at the desired cutting height. This can be either a forward backward or side-to-side motion. Cutting shorter lengths produces best results.Trim only when grass and weeds are dry.Wire and picket fences can cause extra string wear or breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may wear strings rapidly.Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings, siding, and fence posts can easily be damaged by the strings.
