20v DeWalt String Trimmer User Manual Graphic Analysis




20v Lithium Ion + Brushless Motor DeWalt String Trimmer
Part No. 90630841 DCST920 : Understanding the Owners Manual

Performing basic image analytics on the depicted graphics tells you a graphical story about how the tool battery is charged, how to install the battery, how the unit goes together, its operation, maintenance, service, warranties, warnings, some jargon & the manufactures details. Have a look at the graphics. I produced this posting to study the owners manual prior to the tools acquisition. I found the owners manual on DeWalts website.
