STRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed
below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or seri-
ous personal injury.
 Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
 Do not operate power tools in explosive atmo-
spheres, such as in the presence of flammable liq-
uids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks which
may ignite the dust or fumes.
 Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
 A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
 Use battery operated tool only with specifically des-
ignated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
 Use battery only with charger listed.
(Item No.
 Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords may create a fire.
 Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use com-
mon sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal
 Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing,
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
 Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or insert-
ing the battery pack into a tool with the switch on
invites accidents.
 Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning
the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.

 Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
 Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
 Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
 Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
 Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
 Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your ap-
plication. The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
 Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dan-
gerous and must be repaired.
 Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the tool accidentally.
 Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
 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
sparks, burns, or a fire.
 Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cut-
ting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
 Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that
may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained tools.
 Use only accessories that are recommended by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when
used on another tool.
 Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-
based products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
