Safety instructions

Missing or non-readable security stickers have to be replaced immediately!
The locally applicable laws and regulations may specify the minimum age of the operator and limit the use of this machine!
To avoid malfunction, machine defects and injuries, read the following security instructions!

Work area safety:
• Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

Electrical safety:

  • Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
  • Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
  • Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
  • Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
  • When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.

Personal safety:

  • Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
  • Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
  • Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
  • Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
  • Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
  • Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
  • If devices are provided for the connection of dust collectors and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.\

Power tool use and care: 

  • Do not overload the machine. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
  • Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
  • Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
  • Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
  • Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
  • Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
  • Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.

Additional safety instructions:

  • Sawdust and splinters must not be removed while the machine is running.
  • Do not use cutting discs or circular saw blades in the machine.
  • Protect blades against shocks and impacts
  • Only use properly sharpened blades, otherwise increased culling forces will shatter the workpiece.
  • Before use, inspect the blade for any damage. Do not use blades that are cracked, ripped or otherwise damaged
  • Make sure that the workpiece is sufficiently supported or clamped. Keep your hands away from the surface to be cut
  • Use the machine only with the auxiliary handle.
  • When blades have to be mounted on the thread of the spindle, make sure that the spindle has sufficient thread
  • Make sure that the blade has been mounted and fastened properly. Do not use reducing rings or adapters to make the blade fit properly.
  • Apply the machine to the workpiece only when the machine is switched on.
  • When working with the machine always hold the machine firmly with both hands and provide for secure distance.
  • Always wear safety goggles and hearing protection. If desired or required also use another protection for example an apron or helmet
  • Always disconnect the plug from the socket before carrying out any work on the machine, only plugin when the machine is switched off
  • keep mains lead clear from the working range of the machine. Always lead the cable away behind you.
  • The base plate must not be clamped down while the blade is extended. Lowering and raising the blade must be a smooth operation.
