SERVICING OF DOUBLE INSULATED APPLIANCES
Your Blower/Vac is double-insulated to give you added safety. In a double insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are
provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double insulated appliance, nor should a means for
grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a double insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the
system and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a double insulated appliance must be
identical to the parts they replace. A double insulated appliance is marked with the words double insulated or "double
insulation". The symbol (square within a square) may also be marked on the appliance.
SAFETY RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS: EXTENSION CORDS
Double insulated tools have 2-wire cords and can be used with 2-wire or 3-wire extension cords. Only round jacketed
extension cords should be used, and we recommend that they be listed by Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) (C.S.A. in
Canada). If the extension will be used outside, the cord must be suitable for outdoor use. Any cord marked as outdoor can also
be used for indoor work.
An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for safety, and to prevent loss of power and
overheating. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more
capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension to make up the total length, be sure each individual extension
contains at least the minimum wire size.
To determine the minimum wire size required, refer to the chart below. Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires, damaged insulation, and defective fittings. Make any needed repairs or replace the cord if necessary.
