Extending the life of your nylon

Before using your nylon line for the first time, it's a great idea to put in water and leave it to soak for 12–24 hours. This makes the line much more flexible and less likely to break.

Cleaning your machine

Once you've finished using your Line Trimmer, take the battery out and use a soft brush to remove any debris, and wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth.

Storing your Line Trimmer

Make sure your FSA 57 is kept in a dry, secure place with the battery removed when not in use. Keep this machine out of the reach of children.

When using your Line Trimmer

Because the FSA 57 uses an Autocut® mowing head, it is only suited for trimming grass. To avoid damage to the head, do not attempt to cut thicker material such as wood.
