Safety first! Bits of weed and grass start flying furiously when this trimmer is put to work. Wear safety equipment, especially eye and ear protection.
Check fuel levels and start the trimmer at the rental yard to make sure it works properly.
DON'T: Bad things can happen when a bladed trimmer comes into contact with rocks. If you're working in a rocky area, consider using a string trimmer instead of a bladed trimmer. Similarly, avoid potential of dangerous kickback by using a string trimmer for work along hard surfaces such as metal fences or building foundations
DO: Especially if you're working in dry conditions, or an area that has been sprayed with chemicals, wear a particle mask or respirator.
DON'T: Don't attempt to operate a weed trimmer rental with only one hand, or to reach with one hand to clear obstacles from your trimming path.
