Intended use

ENGLISH

Your Black & Decker chainsaw has been designed for
pruning and felling trees and cutting logs. This tool is
intended for consumer use only.
General safety rules
Warning! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
injury. The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below
refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Work area
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and 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.
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 safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard
hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off
position before plugging in. Carrying power tools with your
finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the
power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating
part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
f.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices can
reduce dust related hazards
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for
your application. The correct power tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on
and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do
not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition
that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged,
have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in
accordance with these instructions and in the manner
intended for the particular type of power tool, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
