 Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and
do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or
these instructions to operate the power tool. Power
tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
 Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or bind-
ing of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool's operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power
 Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
 Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in ac-
cordance with these instructions, taking into account
the working conditions and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
 Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair per-
son using only identical replacement parts. This will en-
sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Planer Safety Rules
 Wait for the cutter to stop before setting the tool down.
An exposed rotating cutter may engage the surface leading
to possible loss of control and serious injury.
 Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces on-
ly, because the cutter may contact its own cord. Cutting
a "live" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power
tool "live" and could give the operator an electric shock.
 Use clamps or another practical way to secure and sup-
port the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by your hand or against the body leaves it unstable
and may lead to loss of control.
 Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are
hidden in the work area or call the local utility company
for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explo-
sion. Penetrating a water line causes property damage or
may cause an electric shock.
 Do not reach into the chip ejector with your hands. They
could be injured by rotating parts.
 Apply the machine to the workpiece only when
switched on. Otherwise there is danger of kickback when
the cutting tool jams in the workpiece.
 When working, always hold the planer in such a manner
that the planer base plate faces flat on the workpiece.
Otherwise the planer can become wedged and lead to inju-
 Never plane over metal objects, nails or screws. The
planer blade and the blade shaft can become damaged and
lead to increased vibrations.
 Products sold in GB only: Your product is fitted with a
BS 1363/A approved electric plug with internal fuse
(ASTA approved to BS 1362).
1 609 92A 1T5 | (19.11.15)
If the plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should
be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place by an
authorised customer service agent. The replacement plug
should have the same fuse rating as the original plug.
The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard and should never be inserted into a mains
socket elsewhere.
Products sold in AUS and NZ only: Use a residual current
device (RCD) with a rated residual current of 30 mA or
