Rules and instructions:
Extension
Cords
Double rnsulatedtools have 2-wire cords and can be used with 2-wire
or 3-wire extension cords. Only round jacketedextension cords should be
used, and we recommendthat they be listedby UnderwritersLaboratories
(U.L.) (C.S.A. in Canada). If the extension will be used outside, the cord
must be suitable for outdoor use. Any cord marked as outdoor can also
be used for indoorwork. An extension cord must have adequate wire size
(AWG or American Wire Gauge) for safety, and toprevent lossof power
and overheating. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the
capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge.
When using morethan one extension to make up the total length,be sure
each individual extension contains at least the minimum wire size. Before
using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed wires, damaged
insulation, and defective fittings. Make any needed repairs or replace the cord
if necessary.

Pluq
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized-plug
(one blade is wider than the other). This equipment must be used with a
suitable polarized 2 wire or 3 wire extension cord. Polarized connections will
fit together only one way. Make sure that the receptacle end of the extension
cord has large and small blade slot widths. If the plug does not fit fully into
the extension cord, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, obtain a suitable
extension cord. If the extension cord does not fit fully intothe outlet, contact
a qualified electrician to installthe proper outlet. Do not change the tool plug
or extension cord in any way.
