How do I adjust the incline?
We have a jack handle on the Hopper side. Turn it counter clockwise to raise the machine angle for faster material flow or clockwise to lower and reduce material feed rate.
Can the trimmer be used outdoors?
Yes. The trimmer controls and reel motor are sealed (IP67) from dust and water for the harsh environments. The leaf collector motor should be protected from getting wet.
Why the two barrels rotate counter clockwise?
Zoom Pro barrels use counter rotate technology allowing the material to naturally move into the cutting zone at 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock position with the angled barrel slot design for maximum cutting efficiency. With this rotation only ONE Reel Blade is required for both Barrels. The reel cutter is positioned at the precise position for the best cutting action on both barrels.
