GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, ﬁ re and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or batte-ry-operated (cordless) power tool.
- Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) D o not operate power tools in explosive at-mospheres, such as in the presence of ﬂ amma-ble liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) K eep children and bystanders away while ope-rating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
- Electrical safety
a) P ower tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodiﬁ ed plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) A void body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of elec-tric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c) D o not expose power tools to rain or wet condi-tions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) D o not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) 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
a) 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.
b) U se 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.
c) P revent 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 energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) R emove 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.
e) D o not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) D ress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewel-lery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust related hazards.
h) D o not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools allow you to become complacent and ig-nore tool safety principles. A careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction of a second.
- Power tool use and care
a) D o not force the power tool. 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.
b) 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.
c) D isconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool be-fore making any adjustments, changing acces-sories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) S tore idle power tools out of the reach of child-ren 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.
e) 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.
f) K eep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly main-tained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) U se 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.
h) 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.
- Battery tool use and care
a) R echarge 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.
b) U se power tools only with speciﬁcally desig-nated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and ﬁre.
c) 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 termi-nals together may cause burns or a ﬁre.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact acci-dentally occurs, ﬂush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejec-ted from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
e) Do not use a battery pack or tool that is damaged or modiﬁed. Damaged or modiﬁed batteries may exhibit unpredictable behaviour resulting in ﬁre, explosion or risk of injury.
f) Do not expose a battery pack or tool to ﬁre or excessive temperature. Exposure to ﬁre or temperature above 130 °C may cause explo-sion. NOTE The temperature „130 °C“ can be replaced by the temperature „265 °F“.
g) Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range speciﬁed in the instructi-ons. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the speciﬁed range may damage the battery and increase the risk of ﬁre.
a) 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.
b) Never service damaged battery packs. Service of battery packs should only be performed by the manufacturer or authorized service providers.
