SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING!
Read all warnings, safety instructions and other instructions. Failure to follow all the instructions and safety instructions can result in the risk of electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury. Save these instructions and safety instructions for future reference.

WORK AREA

  • Keep the work area clean and well lit. Dark and cluttered work areas increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Do not use power tools in explosive environments, such as in the vicinity of flammable liquids, gas or dust. Power tools produce sparks that can ignite dust and fumes.
  • Keep children and onlookers at a safe distance when using power tools. You can lose control of the tool if you are distracted.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
  • The plug on the power tool must match the power point. Never modify the plug in any way. Never use an adapter with earthed power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets reduce the risk of electric shock.
  • Avoid body contact with earthed surfaces such as pipes, radiators, cookers and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed.
  • Do not expose power tools to rain or moisture. There is a greater risk of electric shock if water gets into a power tool.
  • Be careful with the power cord. Never use the power cord to carry or pull the tool, or to pull out the plug from the power point. Keep the power cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts. Damaged or tangled power cords increase the risk of electric shock.
  • If using the tool outdoors, only use an extension cord approved for outdoor use. Cords intended for outdoor use reduce the risk of electric shock.
  • If it is absolutely necessary to use power tools in damp conditions, use a mains connection protected by a residual current device (RDC). Using an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
  • Stay alert. Pay attention to what you are doing, and use your common sense when working with power tools. Never use power tools if you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention when using a power tool can result in serious personal injury.
  • Use personal safety equipment. Depending on the type of tool and how it is used, safety equipment such as dust masks, non-slip safety shoes, safety helmets and ear protection reduce the risk of personal injury.
  • Avoid accidental starting. Make sure the power switch is in the OFF position before inserting the battery or lifting/carrying the tool. Carrying a power tool with your finger on the switch, or connecting a tool to the mains when the switch is in the ON position, increases the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Remove adjuster keys/spanners before switching on the power tool. Spanners or the like that are left in a rotating part of the tool can cause personal injury.
  • Do not overreach. Always maintain a firm footing and good balance. This ensures better control over the power tool in unexpected situations.
  • Wear suitable clothing. Do not wear loose-fitting clothing or jewellery.
    Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose-fitting clothing, jewellery and long hair can get caught in moving parts.
  • If dust extraction and dust collection equipment is available, this should be connected and used correctly. The use of such equipment can reduce the risk of dust-related problems.
  • Do not allow the fact that you are used to working with similar tools cause you to become over-confident and to disregard the safety instructions for the tool. Remember that a fraction of a second of inattention or negligence can result in serious personal injury.
USING AND LOOKING AFTER POWER TOOLS
  • Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for the planned work. The tool does the job better and safer when used at the rate for which it was designed.
  • Do not use the tool if it cannot be switched on and off with the power switch. Power tools that cannot be controlled with the power switch are dangerous and must be repaired.
  • Pull out the plug and/or remove the battery before making any adjustments, changing accessories or putting the power tool away. These safety precautions reduce the risk of accidently starting the power tool.
  • Store power tools out of the reach of children when not in use. Never allow children, or anyone who is unfamiliar with the power tool and these instructions, to use the tool. Power tools are dangerous if used by inexperienced persons.
  • Keep the power tool properly maintained. Check that moving parts are properly adjusted and do not jam, and that no parts are incorrectly fitted or damaged. Check for other factors that could affect functionality. If the power tool is damaged, it must be repaired before being used again. 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 jam and are easier to control.
  • Use the power tool, accessories and bits etc., in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the actual working conditions and the work that is to be done. It can be dangerous to use power tools for purposes other than those for which they are intended to be used.
  • Keep handles and grips clean, dry and free from oil and grease. Greasy handles and grips make it difficult to hold the tool.
SERVICE
  • The power tool must only be serviced by qualified personnel using identical spare parts. This will ensure that the power tool remains safe to use.
SPECIAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
  • Only use sockets and accessories that are intended for use with an impact wrench. Do not use sockets and accessories intended for hand tools. Such sockets and accessories are often chrome-plated and must not be used with impact wrenches. They can break and cause personal injury.
  • When tightening wheel nuts/bolts, always use a torque rod between the product and the socket, as otherwise the screw connection can be tightened too firmly, which can damage the rim.
  • Disconnect the plug before changing the socket, as otherwise there is a risk of starting the wrench accidentally, which can cause personal injury.
  • Check the power cord and the plug regularly. Do not use the product if the power cord or plug are damaged.
  • A damaged power cord or plug must be replaced by an authorised service centre or other qualified personnel to ensure safe use.
  • Only use an extension cord approved for outdoor use. Unsuitable extension cords can cause a risk of fire and/or electric shock.
  • Do not expose the product to rain or moisture.
  • Pull out the plug when the product is not in use.
  • Follow the instructions below to avoid accidents.
    –  The user and any onlookers must wear safety glasses and ear defenders.
    – Only use sockets and accessories that are intended for use with an impact wrench.
    – Always check before use that all sockets are undamaged.
REDUCTION OF NOISE AND VIBRATIONS
  • Plan the work so that exposure to heavy vibrations is spread over a longer period.
  • To reduce noise and vibrations when in use, limit the time the tool is in use, and use low-power/vibration mode and suitable safety equipment.
  • Take the following precautions to minimise the risks of exposure to vibrations and/or noise:
    – Only use the tool in accordance with these instructions.
    – Check that the tool is in good condition.
    – Use accessories in good condition, and which are suitable for the purpose.
    –  Keep a firm grip on the handles/ grips.
    – Maintain and lubricate the tool in accordance with these instructions.

The declared vibration value and noise, which have been measured by a standardised test method, can be used to compare different tools with each other and for a preliminary assessment of exposure. The measurement values have been determined in accordance with EN 62841-2-

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 being processed. 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).

HOW TO USE

PREPARATIONS
  • Vehicles with manual gearbox: Park the vehicle and apply the parking brake.
  • Vehicles with automatic gearbox: Park the vehicle, move the gear selector to position P (parking) and apply the parking brake. All wheels that are in contact with the ground must be wedged, so that the vehicle cannot move.
  • Only lift the vehicle at the lifting points specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Read the operating instructions for the vehicle.
  • Place the vehicle on a firm, level surface.
  • Use a jack that is approved for the vehicle’s weight.
  • Never work or spend time under a raised load that is not supported at the lifting points with approved supports, such as jack stands.
  • Never work or spend time under a load that is only resting on hydraulic lifting equipment
  • Some vehicles may have different threads on the wheel nuts/bolts on the right and left sides. Check this before starting work, so that the connections are not tightened more firmly by mistake.
  • Place the wheel nuts/bolts in position and tighten at least 3 turns by hand before tightening, as otherwise there is a risk of the threads being damaged.
LOOSENING WHEEL NUTS/BOLTS
  1. Place a socket of the correct size on the product’s mount (1). Use hexagonal sockets for impact wrenches.
  2. Check that the socket covers the entire nut/bolt head.
  3. Hold the product firmly with one hand around the front end of the product and the other on the handle (5).
  4. Press the top part of the power switch for left drive (loosening).

NOTE:
Do not operate the impact wrench for longer than 15 seconds in the same direction if the wheel nut/bolt does not loosen. Follow the instructions below if the wheel nut/bolt does not loosen.
– Change the direction of rotation using the power switch (6) and operate in the opposite direction for a few seconds.
– Revert to the original direction of rotation.
FIG. 2

TIGHTENING WHEEL NUTS/BOLTS

NOTE:
When tightening wheel nuts/bolts, always use a torque rod (sold separately) between the impact wrench and the socket, as otherwise the screw connection can be tightened too firmly, which can damage the rim.

  1. Use hexagonal sockets for impact wrenches, of the correct size for the nut/ bolt head.
  2. Place the wheel nuts/bolts in position and tighten at least 3 turns by hand before tightening, as otherwise there is a risk of the threads being damaged.
  3. Place the socket fully onto the nut/bolt head. Always start with the wheel nut/ bolt that is nearest the bottom (see image below).
  4. Hold the product firmly with one hand around the front end of the product and the other on the handle (5).
  5. Press the bottom part of the power switch (6) for right drive (tightening).
  6. Lower the vehicle with the jack so that all the vehicle’s wheels are in contact with the ground.

WARNING!
After changing a wheel, always check with a torque wrench that the wheel nuts/bolts are tightened to the correct torque.
