Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-
wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the tool's
internal insulation. Observe all normal safety precautions
to avoid electrical shock.
NOTE: Servicing of a product with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and should
be performed only by a qualified service technician. For
service, we suggest you return the product to your near-
est authorized service center for repair. Always use original
factory replacement parts when servicing.
This product has a precision-built electric motor. It should
be connected to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz,
AC only (normal household current). Do not operate this
product on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop
will cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the product does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double-check the power supply.
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the product will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in
overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine
the minimum wire size required in an extension cord. Only
round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories
(UL) should be used.
When working outdoors with a product , use an extension
cord that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is
designated with "WA" on the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
**Ampere rating (on product data plate)
**Used on 12 gauge - 20 amp circuit.
NOTE: AWG = American Wire Gauge
Keep the extension cord clear of the working area.
Position the cord so that it will not get caught on
lumber, tools, or other obstructions while you are working
with a power tool. Failure to do so can result in serious
Check extension cords before each use. If damaged
replace immediately. Never use the product with a
damaged cord since touching the damaged area could
cause electrical shock resulting in serious injury.
