Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately. This power tool is intended for use on a circuit with
an receptacle similar to the one illustrated in sketch A, Fig. 4. A temporary adapter, similar to the one
illustrated in sketches B and C, may be used to connect the power tool plug to a 2-pole receptacle as
shown in sketch B in case a properly grounded receptacle is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded receptacle has been installed by
a qualified electrician. The green-colored grounding lug extending from the adapter must be connected
to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded receptacle box.
Always connect the power tool to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system: or to
a system having an equipment-grounding conductor.

The lower the wire size number, the heavier the wire, and the farther it will carry current
without a voltage drop. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
Never connect this unit to an electrical power source until all operating instructions
have been read and understood.
4. Take off the chain.
As the movable part is pulled down by a chain when shipping out, slightly push the handle down and take
off the chain from the handle.
