GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
!
This tool must be
grounded while in use to protect the
operator from electrical shock.
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION
OR BREAKDOWN, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric
currents and reduces the risk of electric
shock. This tool is equipped with an
electrical cord that has an equipment
grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into
a matching receptacle that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG
PROVIDED. If it will not fit the receptacle,
have the proper receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the
equipment grounding conductor can
result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with the green insulation
(with or without yellow stripes) is the
equipment grounding conductor. If
repair or replacement of the electrical
cord or plug is necessary, do not
connect the equipment grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
CHECK with a qualified electrician or
service person if you do not completely
understand the grounding instructions,
or if you are not certain the tool is
properly grounded.
USE only 3-wire extension cords
that have three-pronged grounding
plugs with three-pole receptacles
that accept the tool's plug. Repair
or replace damaged or worn cords
immediately.
Use a separate electrical circuit for
your tool. This circuit must not be less
than # 14 wire and should be protected
with a 15 Amp time delay fuse. Before
connecting the motor to the power
line, make sure the switch is in the
off position and the electric current is
rated the same as the current stamped
on the motor nameplate. Running at a
lower voltage will damage the motor.
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION
CORD. Make sure your extension cord
is in good condition. Use an extension
cord heavy enough to carry the current
your product will draw. draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in
line voltage resulting in loss of power,
overheating and burning out of the
motor. The table below shows the
correct size to use depending on cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If
in doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
Make sure your extension cord is
properly wired and in good condition.
Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified
technician before using it. Protect your
extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.

WARNING
This tool is for indoor use
!
only. Do not expose to rain or use in
damp locations.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit
that has a receptacle like the one
illustrated in Figure 1. Figure 1 shows
a three-pronged electrical plug and
receptacle that has a grounding conductor.
If a properly grounded receptacle is not
available, an adapter (Figure 2) can be
used to temporarily connect this plug to
a two-contact grounded receptacle. The
adapter (Figure 2) has a grounding lug
extending from it that MUST be connected
to a permanent earth
ground, such as a properly grounded
receptacle box.
