WARNING—When using electric tools, basic
safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal
injury, including the following:
1. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite injury.
2. Avoid dangerous environment. Do not expose
power tool to rain. Do not use power tools in
damp or wet locations. Do not use tool in pres-
ence of flammable liquids, dust or gases. Power
tools can create sparks which might ignite the
dust or fumes.
3. Keep bystanders, children and visitors away
while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
4. Guard against electrical shock. Prevent body
contact with grounded surfaces.
5. Double insulated tools are equipped with a po-
larized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
This plug will fit in the outlet only way. If the plug
does not fully fit in the outlet, reverse the plug. If
it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug
in any way.
6. Do not abuse cord. Never carry tool by cord
or yank it to disconnect from receptacle. Keep
cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving
parts. Replace damaged cord immediately. Dam-
aged cords increase the risk of electrical shock.
7. When operating tool outside, use an outdoor
extension cord marked with "W-A" or "W". When
using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy
enough to carry the current your product will
8. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use while tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result in serious
personal injury.
9. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, cloth-
ing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, long hair, or jewelry can be caught in
moving parts.
10. Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off
before plugging in the tool. Carrying tools with
your finger on the switch or plugging in the tool
with the switch on invites accidents.
11. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches before
turning the tool on. A wrench or key that is left at-
tached to a rotating part of the tool may result in
personal injury.
12. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
13. Use safety equipment. Always wear protective
glasses. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard
hat, or earplugs may be used for appropriate con-
14. Secure work. Use clamps or other practical
way to secure and support the work piece to a
stable platform. This leaves both hands free to
operate the tool.
15. Do not force the tool. Use the correct tool
for the application. The correct tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is de-
16. Store idle tools. When not in use, tools should
be stored in dry and high or locked place—out
of the reach of children and other untrained per-
17. Disconnect the plug from power source be-
fore making adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing tool.
18. Maintain tools with care. Keep tool clean. Fol-
low instructions for lubricating and changing ac-
19. Check for misalignment or binding of moving
parts, and other conditions that may affect op-
eration. If damaged have the tool serviced by a
Grabber authorized service center before using.
20. Use only accessories recommended by manu-
facturer of tool. Accessories that are suitable for
one tool may become hazardous when used on
another tool.
21. Repairing tool. Any repairs to electric tools
should be performed only by qualified personnel.
Use only authorized parts.
