degree of injuries to the operator. Injuries can occur
in fingers, hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, and/or
nerves and blood supply or other body parts. The
injuries can be debilitating and/or permanent, and
can increase gradually during weeks, months or
years. Possible injuries include damage to the blood
circulation system, the nervous system, joints, and
other body structures.
Symptoms can occur during operation of the product
or at other times. If you have symptoms and
continue to operate the product, the symptoms can
increase or become permanent. If these or other
symptoms occur, get medical aid:
Numbness, loss of feeling, tingling, pricking,
pain, burning, throbbing, stiffness, clumsiness,
loss of strength, changes in skin color or
condition.
Symptoms can increase in cold temperatures. Use
warm clothing and keep your hands warm and dry
when you operate the product in cold environments.
Do maintenance on and operate the product as
given in the operator's manual, to keep a correct

handles into the end stops more than necessary.
