Risk description
The head may be mounted on a grass trimmer and may therefore, against its intended use, be used as a hand-held chain saw. As a consequence, this could cause kickback or loss of control over the tool, resulting in injuries. Additionally, the chain saw elements and cutting attachments are unprotected and could break during use. Consequently, the user could be hit by the head or broken pieces and be injured. The product does not meet the requirements of the Supply of Machinery Regulations 2008.
