Product title
Cutter for lawn trimmer - Predator - Professional Brush Killer
Product description
Cutter to be fitted to a lawn trimmer. Instead of a rotating plastic thread, there is a rotating disc with three steel blades. It is intended to enable the user to trim branches and bushes rather than to cut grass. It is supplied separately as an accessory; it is not supplied along with the original lawn trimmer. The manufacturer is advertising it as suitable for use with all lawn trimmers.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because: - the steel blades could fly off due to wear and tear, ageing or overload; - lawn trimmers generally available to consumers do not have a guard that is thick or large enough to provide adequate protection for this type of heavy cutter. A fatal accident occurred with a similar product. The product does not comply with the Machinery Directive.
