# Keep all people and animals away from the area you're working in # Hold the hedge trimmer correctly using both hands # Make sure the hedge trimmer's switched off and idle before attempting to remove any jammed cuttings # Wear protective clothing including heavy-duty footwear and safety goggles to protect your eyes from flying cuttings # Electric hedge trimmers: Don't use in wet weather. Keep the cable well away from where you are cutting and check that the socket outlet has working RCD protection # Read the manufacturer's instructions before use

Trimmer does not adjust low enough

f your zero adjustment won't turn far enough for proper meter reading then the measurement electrode has "lost it's span" and will require a severe chemical cleaning (i use gentle heated muratic acid followed by a water boil allow to cool off before using ) or replacement if spec model allows for this , Note: heated acid is extremly dangerous and corrosive and you should use all possible safety precautions when using it
