First put on the harness. The spring hook should be about a hand's width below your right hip.
Suspend the machine from the eyelet using the spring hook.
Adjust the handles and push the carrying ring along the shaft until the brushcutter is balanced. The cutting attachment should be just above the ground. The optimum cutting angle is automatically achieved when the machine is balanced.
The correct brushcutter position is with your arms slightly bent and your wrists straight. Please refer to your Instruction Manual for specific tips on using the circular saw blade.
