ELECTRICAL
SAFETY
1. Double Insulated
tools are equipped with a polarized
plug (one blade
is wider than the other).Thls
plug will fit in a polarized
outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician
to install a polarized
outlet. DO NOT change or alter the plug in any way.
2. Double insulationu eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power
cord and grounded power supply system. Applicable only to Class II
(double insulated) tools.
3. Before plugging in the tool, BE SURE that the outlet voltage supplied is
within the voltage marked on the tool's data plate. DO NOT use "AC only"
rated tools with a DC power supply.
4. ALWAYS avoid body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes,
radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is grounded.
5. If operating the power tool in damp locations
is unavoidable,
ALWAYS use a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
to supply power
to your tool. ALWAYS wear electrician's
rubber gloves and footwear
in damp conditions.
6. DO NOT expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
7. ALWAYS periodically
inspect tool cords and extension
cords for
damage. Have damaged cords repaired at a Sears Service Center.
BE SURE to stay constantly aware of the cord location and keep it
well away from the moving blade.
8. ALWAYS use the proper extension
cord. and MAKE SURE the cord is
in good condition.
ONLY USE a cord that is heavy enough to carry the
current your tool will draw. An undersized cord will cause a current drop
in line voltage resulting in a loss of power and overheating. A wire gauge size
AWG (American Wire Gauge) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension
cord 25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next heavier size. Smaller
gauge wires, have greater capacity (14 gauge wire has more capacity than
16 gauge wire).
9. DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to pull the plug from the
outlet. Keep cord away from heat, o11,sharp edges or moving parts.
Replace damaged
cords Immediately.
Damaged cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
10. When operating a power tool outside, ALWAYS use an outdoor extension
cord marked "W-A" or "W". These cords are rated for outdoor use and
reduce the risk of electric shock.
