5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified by the
A charger that is suitable for one type of battery
pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically designated
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
Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
d) 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.

If the tool is overloaded, the motor may stop. In this
case, release the switch of tool and eliminate causes
of overloading. After that, you can use it again.
Furthermore, please heed the following warning and
In order to prevent any battery leakage, heat generation,
smoke emission, explosion and ignition beforehand,
please be sure to heed the following precautions.
Make sure that swarf and dust do not collect on the
During work make sure that swarf and dust do not

circuits. (See Fig. 1)
PRECAUTIONS FOR CORDLESS BLOWER
1. Always charge the battery at a temperature of 0
– 40°C. A temperature of less than 0°C will result
in over charging which is dangerous. The battery
cannot be charged at a temperature higher than
The most suitable temperature for charging is that
of 20 – 25°C.
2. When one charging is completed, leave the charger
for about 15 minutes before the next charging of
