When wheel is binding or when interrupting a cut for
any reason, switch off the power tool and hold the
power tool motionless until the wheel comes to a
complete stop. Never attempt to remove the cut-off
wheel from the cut while the wheel is in motion
otherwise kickback may occur. Investigate and take
corrective action to eliminate the cause of wheel binding.
Do not restart the cutting operation in the workpiece.
Let the wheel reach full speed and carefully re-enter
the cut. The wheel may bind, walk up or kickback if the
power tool is restarted in the workpiece.
Support panels or any oversized workpiece to mini-
mize the risk of wheel pinching and kickback. Large
workpieces tend to sag under their own weight. Supports
must be placed under the workpiece near the line of cut
and near the edge of the workpiece on both sides of the
Use extra caution when making a "pocket cut" into ex-
isting walls or other blind areas. The protruding wheel
may cut gas or water pipes, electrical wiring or objects that
can cause kickback.
Safety warnings specific for sanding operations
Do not use excessively oversized sanding disc paper.
Follow manufacturers recommendations, when select-
ing sanding paper. Larger sanding paper extending
beyond the sanding pad presents a laceration hazard and
may cause snagging, tearing of the disc or kickback.
Safety warnings specific for polishing operations
Do not allow any loose portion of the polishing bonnet
or its attachment strings to spin freely. Tuck away or
trim any loose attachment strings. Loose and spinning
attachment strings can entangle your fingers or snag on
Safety warnings specific for wire brushing opera-
Be aware that wire bristles are thrown by the brush
even during ordinary operation. Do not overstress the
wires by applying excessive load to the brush. The
wire bristles can easily penetrate light clothing and/or skin.
If the use of a guard is recommended for wire brush-
ing, do not allow any interference of the wire wheel or
brush with the guard. Wire wheel or brush may expand
in diameter due to work load and centrifugal forces.
Safety of others
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (includ-
ing children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concern-
ing use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
Use clamps or another practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which
may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These
risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc.
Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks can not be avoided. These include:
Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts.
Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or ac-
Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using
any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take regular
Impairment of hearing.
Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed when
using your tool (example:- working with wood, especially
oak, beech and MDF.)
Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of
the power tool can differ from the declared value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may
increase above the level stated.
When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety
measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons regularly
using power tools in employment, an estimation of vibration
exposure should consider, the actual conditions of use and the
way the tool is used, including taking account of all parts of the
operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off
and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time.
