4. BEFORE OPERATION CHECKS

For your safety and to maximize the service life of your equipment, it is very important to take a few moments
before you operate the drill to check its conditions. Be sure to take care of any problem you find, or have your
servicing dealer correct it, before you operate the drill.
Improperly maintaining this product, or failure o correct a problem before operation, can cause a
malfunction in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.
Before beginning your pre-operation checks, be sure the engine in level and the engine switch is in the OFF
position.
ALWAYS check the following items before you start the engine:
1.
Look around and underneath the engine for signs of oil or petrolleaks.
2.
Remove any excessive dirt or debris, especially around the muffler nad recoil starter.
3.
Look for signs of damage.
4.
Check that all shields and covers are in place, and all nuts, bolts and screws are tightened.

HECK THE ENGINE
1.
Check the fuel level (see "Refueling"). Starting with a full tank will help to eliminate or reduce operating
interruptions for refueling.
2.
Check the engine oil level (see "Oil level check"). Running the engine with a low oil level can cause
engine damage.
3.
Check the air filter element (see "Air cleaner"). A dirty air filter element will restrict air flow to the
carburetor, reducing engine performance.

HECK THE IMPACT MECHANISM
1.
A damaged dust protection cap should be changed immediately. We recommend having this carried out
by an after-sales service.
2.
To provide safe and good operations, check that the tools are cleaned.
3.
Check that the impact mechanism is free of oil leaks. In this case consult an after-sales service for a
complete check.

Setting the auxiliary handle.
If, despite the accurate checks, the impact mechanism should fails, the repair must be carried out by an
authorized after-sales service.
