Warning! The actual vibration and noise level when using tools may differ from the specified maximum value, depending on how the tool is used and the material. It is, therefore, necessary to determine which safety precautions are required to protect the user, based on an estimate of exposure in actual operating conditions (taking into account all stages of the work cycle, e.g. the time when the tool is switched off and when it is idling, in addition to the start-up time).
1 The declared values for vibration and noise, which have been measured according to a standardized test method, can be used to compare different tools with each other and for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
