operation. Long periods at full throttle without any load on
the engine can lead to serious engine damage.

The ABC of clearing

Always use the correct equipment.

Make sure the equipment is well adjusted.

Follow the safety precautions.

Organise your work carefully.

Always use full throttle when starting to cut with the blade.

Always use sharp blades.

Avoid stones.

Control the felling direction (take advantage of the wind).
 
    WARNING! Avoid cutting with the area of the
blade between the 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock
positions. Because of the speed of rotation
of the blade kickback can occur if you
attempt to cut thick stems with this area of
the blade.
