SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE
The term "power tool" in the warnings
refers to your mains-operated (corded)
power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
1) WORK AREA SAFETY
a) Keep work area clean and well
lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite
accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in
explosive atmospheres, such
as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools
create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders
away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the
outlet. Never modify the plug in
any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with earthed (grounded)
power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of
electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed
or grounded surfaces such as
pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased
risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain
or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use
the cord for carrying, pulling or
unplugging the power tool. Keep
cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving parts. Damaged
or entangled cords increase the risk
of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool
outdoors, use an extension cord
suitable for outdoor use. Use
of a cord suitable for outdoor use
reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in damp
location is unavoidable, use a
ground fault circuit interrupter
(GFCI) protected supply. Use of
a GFCI reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3) PERSONAL SAFETY
a) Stay alert, watch what you are
doing and use common sense
when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you
are tired or under the influence
of drugs, alcohol or medication.
A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective
equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment
such as dust mask, nonskid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
