THE RBRC™ SEAL
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the LI-ION
battery (or battery pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the battery (or battery
pack) at the end of its useful life have already been paid by Black & Decker.
RBRC™ in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users, has
established programs in the United States to facilitate the collection of spent LI-ION batteries.
Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by returning the spent LI-ION
battery to an authorized Black & Decker service center or to your local retailer for recycling.
You may also contact your local recycling center for information on where to drop off the spent
battery. RBRC™ is a registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation.
WARNING: To avoid serious injury, remove the battery from the trimmer before
performing any maintenance.
CAUTION: To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
adjustment should be performed by authorized service centers or other qualified service
organizations, always using identical replacement parts.
1. Keep the air intake slots clean to avoid overheating.
2. Your trimmer line can dry out over time. To keep your line in top condition, store spare pre-
wound spools or bulk line in a plastic, sealable bag with a tablespoon of water.
3. Plastic parts may be cleaned by using a mild soap and a damp rag.
4. The line cutter on the edge of the guard can dull over time. It is recommended you
periodically touch-up the sharpness of the blade with a file.
