Congratulations, you are now in possession of groundbreaking technology that will make working in your garden easier cleaner, less hassle, with advanced, lighter, more powerful battery tools than ever before.
We are keen that you get the very best performance from your battery powered lawn mower from the very first time you ‘charge-up and go’. Subsequently, we hope the following guidelines and advice will help. They are based on our extensive experience, with reference to the sorts of questions new cordless lawnmower mower users regularly ask us.
As a preliminary tip, do read your manuals and instruction sheets thoroughly before you start and keep them to hand while you get used to your machine. They will offer you advice you may well need.
Assembly: Your new battery powered leaf blower will arrive ‘boxed' and there may be a minimal element of assembly.
Preparation: Before you use your leaf blower for the first time
- Make sure you get used to the weight of your trimmer. Put the battery in and try lifting and wielding it without being switched on to get used to it.
- Check any your bolts/nuts/screws are tight before using
- Check battery contacts and the fit
Starting: If you are have difficulty starting your cordless leaf blower, it is always advisable to check the following
- Make sure your battery or batteries are correctly charged as per the instructions in the manual.
- Check the battery or batteries to see if they are fitted properly and securely in place.
Storage: Storing your blower in the right place is important but there are extra considerations when storing a battery powered model
- Make sure you store your cordless blower in a dry place, covered if possible. Always give it a wipe-over before storage and never store the blower wet leaves or moisture left on it. Never leave or attempt to store it in a humid environment.
- Before storing your cordless blower away for a long time, make sure the battery is partially charged, perhaps somewhere between 30 and 70% depending on the time they are being stored. Storing on a full charge can reduce the battery life and storing on no charge can make re-charging later potentially difficult.
- It is preferable to store your battery separate from the blower itself, but in similar conditions
- Try to make sure you store your battery or batteries at a reasonable temperature, not in any extremes of hot and cold as this can also affect the charging cycles and battery life, make sure you don’t store them near or on boilers or radiators and avoid leaving them in a hot car or by a window in the sun.
- Try to ensure that batteries are not stored in such a way that metal can touch the contacts as this can damage them and is, potentially, dangerous.
Health and Safety
- Never point your blower at people or animals and be careful in general where you point the powerful air jet as twigs and other debris can fly up and could cause harm or damage
- Do wear a pair of goggles during use to protect your eyes from flying debris and dust
- Battery powered leaf blowers are relatively quiet but we do recommend a pair of ear defenders during use.
- Never use your leaf blower when over-tired, ill or under the influence of alcohol
Servicing: Don’t forget that Annual Servicing is usually recommended by the manufacturers and is a requirement if you want to extend the guarantee beyond the first year.
