C) The second handle (5) can be adjusted to provide optimum balance and comfort. u Lift the locking clamp (14) on the secondary handle. u Gently slide the secondary handle (5) up or down the tube (13) to the desired height. u Secure the locking clamp (14) once the desired position has been acheived. Adjusting the height of the tool (fig. D) This tool has a telescopic mechanism, allowing you to set it to a comfortable height. There are multiple height settings. To adjust the height setting, proceed as follows: u Release the height adjust locking clamp (15). u Gently pull the tube (13) up or down to the desired height. u Close the height adjust locking clamp (15). Releasing the cutting line In transit, the cutting line is taped to the spool housing. Warning! Before assembly, remove the battery from the tool. u Remove the tape holding the cutting line to the spool housing (7). Charging the battery (fig. E) The battery needs to be charged before first use and whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were easily done before. The battery may become warm while charging; this is normal and does not indicate a problem. Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures below 10 °C or above 40 °C. Recommended charging temperature: approx. 24 °C. Note: The charger will not charge a battery if the cell temperature is below approximately 10 °C or above 40 °C. The battery should be left in the charger and the charger will begin to charge automatically when the cell temperature warms up or cools down. u To charge the battery (4), insert it into the charger (16). The battery will only fit into the charger in one way. Do not force. Be sure that the battery is fully seated in the charger. u Plug in the charger and switch on at the mains. The charging indicator (16a) will flash green continuously (slowly). The charge is complete when the charging indicator (16a) lights green continuously. The charger and the battery can be left connected indefinitely with the LED illuminated. The LED will change to flashing green (charging) state as the charger occasionally tops up the battery charge. The charging indicator (16a) will be lit as long as the battery is connected to the plugged-in charger. u Charge discharged batteries within 1 week. Battery life will be greatly diminished if stored in a discharged state. Leaving the battery in the charger The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the LED glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the battery pack fresh and fully charged. Charger diagnostics If the charger detects a weak or damaged battery, the charging indicator (16a) will flash red at a fast rate.
Page: 6
8 ENGLISH (Original instructions) Proceed as follows: u Re-insert the battery (4). u If the charging indicators continues flashing red at a fast rate, use a different battery to determine if the charging process works properly. u If the replaced battery charges correctly, the original battery is defective and should be returned to a service centre for recycling. u If the new battery gives the same indication as the original battery, take the charger to be tested at an authorised services centre. Note: It may take as long as 30 minutes to determine that the battery is defective. If the battery is too hot or too cold, the LED will alternately blink red, fast and slow, one flash at each speed and repeat. State of charge indicator (fig. E) The battery is fitted with a state of charge indicator. This can be used to display the current level of charge in the battery during use and during charging. u Press the state of charge indicator button (4a). Fitting and removing the battery (fig.

K u Gently swing the trimmer from side to side as shown in fig. L. u When cutting long grass, work in stages from the top. Take small cuts. u Keep the tool away from hard objects and delicate plants. u Cutting line will wear faster and require more feeding if the cutting is done along pavements or other abrasive surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut. u If the tool starts running slowly, reduce the load.
Page: 7
9 ENGLISH (Original instructions) Edging Optimum cutting results are achieved on edges deeper than 50 mm. u Do not use the tool to create edges. To create edges,use an edging spade. u Guide the tool as shown in fig. M. u To make a closer cut, slightly tilt the tool. Fitting a new spool of cutting line (fig.

Rotate the spool slightly until it is seated. u Unclip the end of the cutting line and guide the line into the eyelet (26). The line should protrude approx. 11 cm from the spool cover as shown in fig. O. u Align the tabs (23) on the spool cover with the cut outs (21) in the housing. u Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps securely into place. Warning! If the cutting lines protrude beyond the trimming blade (22), cut them off so that they just reach the blade. Winding new line onto an empty spool (fig. P, Q) You may wind new cutting line onto an empty spool. Replacement packs of cutting line are available from your BLACK+DECKER dealer (cat. no. A6170 [25m], A6171 [40m]). u Remove the empty spool from the tool as described above. u Remove any remaining cutting line from the spool. u Feed 2 cm of cutting line into the hole (31) in the spool as shown (fig. O). u Bend the cutting line and anchor it in the L-shaped slot (27). u Wind the cutting line onto the spool in the direction of the arrow. Make sure to wind the line on neatly and in layers. Do not criss-cross (fig. Q). u When the wound cutting line reaches the recesses (28), cut the line. Let the line protrude approx. 11 cm from the spool and hold a finger on the line to keep it in place. u Proceed as described above to fit the spool on the tool. Warning!

POWERCOMMANDTM feed does not work (BESTE636 only) u Remove the spool cap. u Pull the cutting line until it protrudes approximately 136mm from the spool. If insufficient cutting line is left on the spool, install a new spool of cutting line. u Ensure that the line is not crisscrossed on the spool as detailed in Fig. Q. If it is, unwind the cutting line, then wind it back on the spool neatly so that the lines do not cross. u Ensure the beginning of the cutting line is pulled tight against the spool. u Align the tabs on the spool cap with the cut outs in the housing. u Push the spool cap onto the housing until it snaps securely into place. u If the cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming blade, cut it off so that it just reaches the blade. If the POWECOMMANDTM line feed still does not work or the spool is jammed, try the following suggestions: u Carefully clean the spool and housing. u Remove the spool and check if the lever in the spool housing can move freely. u Remove the spool and unwind the cutting line, then wind it on neatly again.
