(For All Tools)
WARNING: When using electric tools, basic safety
precautions should always be followed to reduce the
risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury,
including the following:
Read All Instructions.
1 . Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
2. Consider work area environment. Do not use power tools in damp or wet
locations. Keep work area well lit. Do not expose power tools to rain. Do not
use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases.
3. Keep children away. Alt visitors should be kept away from work area. Do not
let visitors contact tool or extension cord.
4. Store idle tools. When not in use, tools should be locked-up or stored in a
dry, high place — out of reach of children.
5. Do not force tool. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
6. Use correct tool. Do not force small tool or attachment to do the job of a
heavy-duty tool. Do not use tool for purpose not intended.
7. Dress appropriately. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be
caught in moving parts. Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are
recommended when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering to
contain long hair.
8. Use safety glasses. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty.
9. Do not abuse cord. Never carry tool by cord or yank it to disconnect from
receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
1 0. Secure workpiece. Use clamps or a vise to hold work. It is safer than using
your hand; it also leaves both hands free to operate tool.
11. Do not over-reach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
1 2. Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer
performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged, have repaired by authorized
service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if damaged.
Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oi! and grease.
1 3. Disconnect tools when not in use, before servicing, and when changing
accessories, such as blades, bits, and cutters.
1 4. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check to ensure that keys and
adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning the tool on.
1 5. Avoid unintentional starting. Do not carry plugged-in tool with finger on
switch. Be sure switch is OFF when plugging in.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS continued
16. Outdoor use extension cords. When toot is used outdoors, use only
extension cords intended for outdoor use and so marked.
17. Stay alert. Watch what you are doing. Do not operate toot when you are tired.
18. Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part
that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate
properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other
conditions that may affect tool operation. A guard or other part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless
otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Defective switches
should be replaced by an authorized service center. Do not use tool if the
switch does not turn it on and off.
19. Guard against electric shock. Prevent body contact with grounded surfaces,
for example: pipes, radiators, ranges, refrigerator enclosures.
20. Replacement parts. When servicing, use only identical replacement part.
21 . Polarized plugs: To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a
polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper
outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool to a power source (receptacle
outlet, etc.) be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the
nameplate of the tool. A power source with voltage greater than that specified for
the tool can result in SERIOUS INJURY to the user, as well as damage the tool. If in
doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL. Using a power source with voltage less than
the nameplate rating is harmful to the motor.
