This redesigned component improves safety of use and minimizes the hazardous effects of operator error/negligence. As such, it is recommended that the product not be used until the upgrade is installed. If operation is required before the upgrade installation is completed, all efforts should be undertaken to assure operator awareness of the pinch point created when the block containing the cutting blades rotates next to the tripping mechanism. All efforts should be undertaken to avoid placing hands or objects into this area.
