I don't have the multi-head system but in reading the edger attachment manual it seems to bounce around between the edger attachment and the power head. I wonder if the vent cleaning comment applies to the power head part of the system. Makes sense to me since both parts could need cleaning after use.

Because it is apparent that EGO documentation team like all corporations reuse already written documentation and then just edit it...:)

In this case, they used the dedicated edger ED804 manual see page 26 
https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/2513/files/EGO_ED0804_Edger_manual_NA.pdf?9571461092881987821
for the ea0800 manual and missed erasing the following lines...

◾  Use a small brush or a small vacuum cleaner to clean the air vents on the rear housing.

◾  Keep the air vents free of obstructions.
