h ) Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of
tools allow you to become complacent and ignore
tool safety principles. A careless action can cause
severe injury within a fraction of a second.
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 and/
or remove the battery pack, if detachable, from
the power tool 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 and accessories. Check
for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition
that may affect the power tool's 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, 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.
h ) Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean
and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and
grasping surfaces do not allow for safe handling and
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
5) Battery Tool Use and Care
a ) Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type
of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
b ) Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
c ) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects,
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
d ) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help.
Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation
or burns.
e ) Do not use a battery pack or tool that is damaged
or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may
exhibit unpredictable behavior resulting in fire,
explosion or risk of injury.
f ) Do not expose a battery pack or tool to
fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to
fire or temperature above 265 °F (130 °C) may
cause explosion.
g ) Follow all charging instructions and do not
charge the battery pack or tool outside the
temperature range specified in the instructions.
Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the
specified range may damage the battery and increase
the risk of fire.
6) Service
a ) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool
is maintained.
b ) Never service damaged battery packs. Service
of battery packs should only be performed by the
manufacturer or authorized service providers.

Pruner Safety Warnings

a ) Follow all instruction when clearing jammed
material, storing or servicing the pruning saw.
make sure the switch is off and the battery pack
is removed. Unexpected actuation of the pruning
saw while clearing the jammed material or
servicing may result in serious personal injury.
b ) Keep all parts of the body away from the pruner
chain when the pruner is operating. Before you
start the pruner, make sure the saw chain is not
contacting anything. A moment of inattention while
operating pruners may cause entanglement of your
clothing or body with the saw chain.
c ) Always hold the pruner with your right hand on
the rear handle and your left hand on the front
handle. Holding the pruner with a reversed hand
configuration increases the risk of personal injury and
should never be done.
d ) Hold the power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, because the saw chain may contact
hidden wiring. Saw chains contacting a "live" wire
may make exposed metal parts of the pruner "live" and
could give the operator an electric shock.
e ) Wear safety glasses and hearing protection.
Further protective equipment for, head, hands,
legs and feet is recommended. Adequate protective
clothing will reduce personal injury from flying debris or
accidental contact with the saw chain.
