OPERATION
WARNING:
!
This tool is equipped with a disc guard that is ONLY safe for
grinding operation. The guard is NOT safe for cutting operation. Using this tool for
cutting operation will create a hazard that can result in serious personal injury.
INSTALLING AND ADJUSTING THE DISC GUARD (See Figs. 2A, 2B, 2C)
Make sure the grinder is unplugged before making any adjustments.
For work with grinding discs, the disc guard must be mounted.
The projection on the disc guard (5) ensures that only a guard that fits this
angle grinder can be mounted. Raise the Guard Clamping Lever (See Fig. 2A).
To install the guard align the guard projection with the matching groove on the
spindle housing (See Fig. 2A). Push the guard down as far as it will go.
Rotate the guard to a working position (See Fig. 2B example).
NOTE: Working position is with the closed side of the guard toward the operator and
open side pointing directly away from the operator to provide maximum protection
against sparks and flying debris.
Close the Clamping Lever to tighten (See Fig. 2C).
