Weed Trimmer Safety

Ensure the shield covering the string/blade is in place and secured. Walk the area to be mowed. Pick up debris such as rocks, sticks, bottles, cans, wires, etc. Debris picked up by a mower or trimmer can be thrown from the machine at speeds as high as 200 m.p.h. or cause the equipment to jam or malfunction.

•Keep your hands, face, and feet away from any moving parts.
•If the trimmer should become entangled, stop the engine immediately.
•Do not overreach. Always be properly balanced.
•Wear a full face shield, hearing protection, long pants, and heavy work boots.
