Carry the hedge trimmer by the handle with the
cutter blade stopped. When transporting or
storing the hedge trimmer always fit the cutting
device cover. Proper handling of the hedge
trimmer will reduce possible personal injury from
the cutter blades.
Hold the electric power tool by the insulated
gripping surfaces because the cutting blades
may come into contact with the cord. Cutting
blades contacting a "live" wire may energise metal
parts of the power tool, resulting in an electric

Never use an incomplete machine, or one on which
an unauthorised modification has been made.
Do not switch on the machine if tool parts or guard
devices are missing or defective.
The machine is provided with a "Quick stop"
function. Have the machine repaired if braking time
is clearly lengthened.
Wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can
cause loss of hearing.
Danger of injury from the sharp edges of the blades.
Never touch the blades. Wear protective gloves.
Always wear protective goggles, gloves, and
suitable shoes when working with the hedge
Always hold the machine with both hands and stand
firmly on the ground. Pay attention to obstacles in
the working area - danger of tripping. Keep the
cutting blade well away from the body.

When you have laid the hedge trimmer down, pull
the plug from the socket.
For storage and transportation, always slide the

To prevent the hedge trimmer plug from
inadvertently being pulled out of the coupling socket
of the extension cable, attached the extension
cable to the cable strain relief device as shown (9)

For other approved extension cables that are also
used outside, we recommend using the cable

Check Quick stop:
Switch machine on briefly and then off again. Have
the machine repaired if braking time is clearly
7.1 Switching On and Off
Switching on (safety two-hand operation):
• For normal applications: Press switch (2) and
• For a wider range: Press switch (1) and
To switch off:
Release one of the two actuated switches.
Thanks to the patented Quick stop, the cutting
blades come to a standstill within 0.05 seconds.

The noise that sometimes occurs during a machine
Quick stop is design-related and has no influence
on operation and service life.
7.2 Cleaning the cutting blade
(after every use)
Switch the machine off.
Pull the mains plug out of the socket.
Wear protective gloves.
Remove contamination, remains of blades etc. (e.g.
with a brush or cloth)
After cleaning: Treat cutting blade with Metabo
hedge trimmer care oil 6.30474 or Pump Spray
6.30475 (biologically degradable).
It is advisable to have blunt cutting blades
sharpened in a specialist workshop. Check cutting
blades regularly for damage and have them
repaired in a specialist workshop immediately if
Use only genuine Metabo accessories.
For a complete range of accessories, see
www.metabo.com or the main catalogue.
Repairs to electrical tools must be carried out by
qualified electricians ONLY!
Contact your local Metabo representative if you
have Metabo power tools requiring repairs. For

When replacing the carbon brushes, for safety
reasons the safety device (spare parts list,
Pos. 26) must also be replaced.
Observe national regulations on environmentally
compatible disposal and on the recycling of disused
machines, packaging and accessories.
Only for EU countries: Never dispose of
power tools in your household waste! In
accordance with European Guideline
2002/96/EC on used electronic and electric
equipment and its implementation in national
legal systems, used power tools must be collected

Vibration total value (vector sum of three directions)
determined in accordance with EN 60745:
ah =Vibration emission value (idle speed)
Kh =Uncertainty (vibration)
The vibration emission level given in this
information sheet has been measured in
accordance with a standardised test given in EN
60745 and may be used to compare one tool with
another. It may be used for a preliminary
assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents
the main applications of the tool. However if the tool
is used for different applications, with different
accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration
emission may differ. This may significantly increase
the exposure level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration
should also take into account the times when the
tool is switched off or when it is running but not
actually doing the job. This may significantly reduce
the exposure level over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the
operator from the effects of vibration such as:
maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the
hands warm, organisation of work patterns.
