When choosing the right extension cord for your tool, there are a few factors to consider. For outdoor tools, be sure to use an extension cord rated for outdoor use. Look at the amperage rating of the tool and determine the length of the cord you’ll need for your yard. Using this chart, or the one in the owner’s manual, determine what gauge the cord should be. We recommend using cords no more than 100 ft. Avoid connecting multiple extension cords together, instead use one cord of appropriate length to reach your workspace from the nearest outlet.
The safety guard is designed to protect you from any debris while trimming. Removing the guard will void the tool’s warranty and puts you at risk for injury. Please refer to your owner’s manual for specific safety instructions.
Worx takes your safety in mind with each tool we design. To prevent accidentally starting the tool and protect against injury, each cordless hedge trimmer includes a 2-stage trigger. In order to start the trimmer, squeeze both triggers on the top and underside of the grip. Both triggers must be held down during operation of the tool. If either trigger is released during operation, the hedge trimmer will stop.
