Use and Care Manual

5. Do not abuse the cord. Never pull the lawn mower by the
cord or yank the cord to disconnect it from the receptacle.
Keep the cord away from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
6. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed
or grounded.
7. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by an
electrician or a power tool repairer.
8. If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
9. Have your tool repaired by an electrician or a qualied
service center. This power tool complies with relevant
safety requirements. To avoid danger, electrical appliances
must only be repaired by qualied personnel using original
spare parts; otherwise this may result in considerable
injury to the user.
Double-Insulated Appliances
In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation
are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is
provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means
for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a double-
insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge
of the system, and should be performed only by qualied
service personnel at an authorized Snow Joe
+ Sun Joe
dealer. Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance
must be identical to the parts they replace. A double-insulated
appliance is marked with the words “Double Insulation” or
“Double Insulated.” The symbol (square within a square)
may also be marked on the appliance.
This hybrid lawn mower is double-insulated, eliminating the
need for a separate grounding system. Use only identical
replacement parts. Read the instructions before servicing
double-insulated appliances. Use this hybrid lawn mower only
as described in this manual.
Battery + Charger Safety
We pay a great deal of attention to the design of every battery
pack to ensure that we supply you with batteries that are safe,
durable and have a high energy density. The battery cells have
a wide range of safety devices. Each individual cell is initially
formatted and its electrical characteristic curves are recorded.
This information is then used to manufacture the best possible
battery packs.
Despite all the safety precautions, caution must always be
exercised when handling batteries. The following points must
be obeyed at all times to ensure safe use. Safe use can only
be guaranteed if undamaged cells are used. Incorrect handling
of the battery pack can cause cell damage.
IMPORTANT! Analyses conrm that incorrect use and poor
care of high-performance batteries are the main factors
responsible for personal and/or product damage.
mWARNING! Use only approved replacement batteries;
other batteries may damage the lawn mower and cause it to
malfunction, which can lead to serious personal injury.
mCAUTION! To reduce the risk of injury, charge the
iBAT40 lithium-ion pack only in its designated
lithium-ion charger, the iCHRG40. Other types of chargers
present risk of re, personal injury and damage. Do not wire
a battery pack to a power supply plug or car cigarette lighter.
Such misuse will permanently disable or damage the battery
Avoid dangerous environments – Do not charge the
battery pack in rain, snow or in damp or wet locations.
Do not use the battery pack or charger in the presence of
explosive atmospheres (gaseous fumes, dust or ammable
materials) because sparks may be generated when inserting
or removing the battery pack, which could lead to a re.
Charge in a well-ventilated area – Do not block the
charger vents. Keep them clear to allow for proper
ventilation. Do not allow smoking or open ames near a
charging battery pack. Vented gases may explode.
NOTE: The safe temperature range for the battery is -4°F
(-20°C) to 113°F (45°C). Do not charge the battery outside
in freezing weather; charge it at room temperature.
Maintain charger cord – When unplugging the charger, pull
the plug, not the cord, from the receptacle to reduce the
risk of damage to the electrical plug and cord. Never carry
the charger by its cord or yank it by the cord to disconnect
it from the receptacle. Keep the cord away from heat, oil
and sharp edges. Make sure the cord will not be stepped
on, tripped over or subjected to damage or stress when the
charger is in use. Do not use the charger with a damaged
cord or plug. Replace a damaged charger immediately.
Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely
necessary – Using the wrong, damaged or improperly
wired extension cord poses a risk of re and electric shock.
If an extension cord must be used, plug the charger into
a properly wired 16 gauge or larger extension cord with
blades that are the same number, size and shape as the
blades on the charger. Make sure that the extension cord is
in good electrical condition.
Charger iCHRG40 is rated for 120 volt AC only – The
charger must be plugged into an appropriate receptacle.
Use only recommended attachments – Use of an
attachment not recommended or sold by the battery
charger or battery pack manufacturer may result in risk of
re, electric shock or personal injury.
