A
WARNING!
Read all instructions.
Failure to fol-
low 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-oper-
ated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE
iNSTRUCTiONS
WORK AREA
SAFETY
[] Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
[] 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.
[] Keep children
and bystanders
away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
ELECTRICALSAFETY
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk of electric shock.
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] Use only with charger
listed.

PERSONAL
SAFETY
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] Do not overreach.
Keep proper footing
and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
[] Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing
or
jewelry.
Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair
can be caught in moving parts.
[] 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.
[] Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry.
Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
[] Do not use on a ladder or unstable support.
Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
POWER
TOOL USE AND CARE
[] 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.
[] 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.
[] Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery
pack 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.
[] 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.
[] Maintain power tools. 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.
[] Keep cutting
tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
