120V String Trimmer Assembly


How do I run the battery cable out of the backpack? Which end goes into the battery?

To route the battery-to-tool cable out of the backpack, insert the black plug end of the cable through the battery-cable port in the bottom back of the backpack. Route the interior cable up the inside of the pack and secure with the hook-and-loop fabric closure. Use the right side port hook and loop if you are right handed or use the left side port and hook and loop if you are left handed. On the exterior of the pack, route the cable through the hook-and-loop closure flap along the hip belt. The red plug end fits into the tool plug receptacle and can be secured on the backpack’s red magnetic cradle when not in use.

Do I need to remove the black tube that comes in the powerhead? What is this for?

The black plastic tube that connects the boxed powerhead to the control handle should be removed before assembly. It is only there to maintain spacing, protect the powerhead, and control handle during shipping and transport.

Which end of the shaft goes into the powerhead? How can I tell?

Labels are placed on the shaft near the attachment end. When the shaft is positioned correctly during operation, the labels will be readable to the operator. The alignment retaining screw hole will only align when the correct shaft end is inserted into the powerhead.
