Fitting is simple and takes minutes, just remove the strimmer guard and head and fit the hedge trimmer attachment and you are ready to go (please note older models may require a small hole to be drilled in the shaft to locate the locking screw).
The attachment features high quality, double sided cutting edges for 2 way action and is suitable for the RBC2110 & RBC2510 or as a replacement set to the PTR2500.
