Checking the metal cutting blade
Remove the metal cutting blade and clean it. Check it for any damage and protect it from corrosion. If necessary you can take your metal cutting blades for sharpening.
Storing mowing lines wet
To keep a mowing line elastic, remove the spool from the mowing head and store it in a damp place. Two or three days before the start of the new season, place the line in water to keep it flexible and supple. Also put new rolls of Bulk reels in a bucket of water before the season starts. Trimmerline dries out, especially in dry areas like the Free State, and will go much further if you put it overnight in a bucket of water.
A brushcutter is best stored hanging up. You can fold in the handlebar to save space.
You have checked that your working area is safe and you are wearing full protective equipment. Before starting the machine, carefully read the Instruction Manual and observe the safety instructions and information in it. When you have done that you can get going with your brushcutter.
