IMPORTANTSAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING
Read all safety warnings, instructions, illustrations and specifications provided with this power tool.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
WORK AREA SAFETY

  • Do not use in the presence of explosive dust, liquids or vapors. Power tools have motors and other parts that can produce sparks during normal use. Do not use within 30 feet of areas where explosive materials may be present (such as gasoline pumps and places where liquids like paint thinners, cleaners, solvents, etc. are stored).
  • Do not use where oxygen or anesthetics are used.
  • Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children. 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.
  • Use extra care when using on stairs. Do not overreach.
    Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
    Keep work area clean and well lit. This enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
  • Avoid dangerous environmental conditions. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not expose to rain. Store tool indoors.
  • Inspect the area before using the power tool. Remove all debris and hard objects such as rocks, glass, wire, etc. that can ricochet, be thrown, or otherwise cause injury or damage during operation.

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.
  • Always wear eye protection. Use of this tool can result in foreign objects being blown into eyes, which can result in eye damage.
  • Wear a face or dust mask when working in dust situations. Dust particles can harm your lungs.
  • Use personal protective equipment. Protective equipment such as hearing protection, protective clothing, and non-skid safety shoes used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
  • Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair and clothing away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
  • Do not point tool at self or bystanders. Keep bystand- ers 50′ away during use. Objects may be thrown or ricochet in all directions.
  • Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools allow you to become complacent and ignore tool safety principles. A careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction of a second.

POWER TOOL USE AND CARE

  • Use the power tool, accessories, 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
  • Do not point tool at anything that is burning or smoking such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
  • To reduce the risk of health hazards from vapors or dust, do not use tool near tool toxic, carcinogenic or other hazardous materials such as asbestos, arsenic, barium, beryllium, lead, pesticides or other health endangering materials.
  • WARNING Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
  • lead from lead-based paint
  • crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
  • arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
    Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
  • Do not use 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.
  • Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before inserting battery pack.
    Inserting battery packs in tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
  • Do not put hands or objects into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything else that may reduce air flow.
  • Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and grasping surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of the tool in unexpected situations.
  • Maintain power tools and accessories. 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.

BATTERY PACK USE AND CARE

  • Remove the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, storing, or any time the power tool is not in use.
    Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
  • Turn off power tool before removing battery pack.
  • Do not handle battery pack, tool, or charger (including charger plug and terminals) with wet hands.
  • Before using the battery pack or charger read the operator’s manuals, and any labels on the battery pack, charger and tool.
  • Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
  • Use tool only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
  • When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another.
    Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
  • Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns. It may be toxic if swallowed.
  • Do not use damaged battery pack or tool. If battery pack or appliance are not working as they should, have been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return them to a service center.
  • Do not expose a battery pack or tool to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or temperature above 265°F (130°C) may cause explosion.
  • Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at
    temperatures outside the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire.

SERVICE

  • Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
  • Never service damaged battery packs. Service of battery packs should only be performed by the manufacturer or authorized service providers.
  • Maintain labels and nameplates. These carry important information.
    If unreadable or missing, contact a MILWAUKEE service facility for a free replacement.
