For best results, put a drop of lubricating oil on the blade approximately once a month. Motor bearings are permanently lubricated - do not attempt to oil. NOTICE: Do not over oil. This trimmer requires very little oiling. When it is necessary to oil, turn trimmer on, hold the unit with blades facing DOWN, and squeeze one drop of oil onto blades. Wipe off excess with soft cloth.
