• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres,
such as in the presence of
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust
• Keep bystanders,
away while operating
a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately.
Damaged cords may create a fire.
• A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a separate battery pack must be
recharged only with the specified charger for the battery. A charger that may be
suitable for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with another battery.
• Use battery operated
tool only with specifically
battery pack. Use of any
other batteries may create a risk of fire.
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power
tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious
• Dress properly.

can be caught in moving parts. Air vents cover moving parts and should be avoided.
• Avoid accidental

battery pack. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery
pack into a toot with the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting
keys or wrenches
before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that
is left attached to a rotating part of the toot may result in personal injury.
• Do not overreach.
Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enable better control of the toot in unexpected situations.
• Use safety equipment.
Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
Tool Use and Care

platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of
• Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application.
The correct toot will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
• Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A toot that cannot be controlled with
the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
battery pack from tool or place the switch in the locked or off position
before making any adjustments,
or storing the tool. Such
preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
• Store idle tools out of reach of children
and other untrained
persons. Tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects
clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects that can make a
from one terminal
to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause sparks, burns, or a fire.
• Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting
tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained tools,
with sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
• Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other
condition that may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced
before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
• Use only accessories
that are recommended
by the manufacturer for your model.
Accessories that may be suitable for one toot may create a risk of injury when used on
• Tool service must be performed
only by qualified
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
• When servicing a tool, use only identical
parts. Follow instructions
the Maintenance section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow
Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
• When working
on a ladder or on scaffolding
be sure to lay the tool down on its side
when not in use. Some tools with large battery packs will stand upright but may be easily
• Do not operate this tool for long periods
of time. Vibration caused by the operating
action of this toot may cause permanent injury to fingers, hands, and arms. Use gloves to
provide extra cushion, take frequent rest periods, and limit daily time of use.
z_WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To
reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a welt ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter
out microscopic particles.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling,
and other construction
activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas with
soap and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may promote
absorption of harmful chemicals.
Z_WARNING: Use of this tool can generate
dust, which may cause
serious and permanent
or other injury. Always use NIOSH/OSHA approved
respiratory protection appropriate for the dust exposure. Direct particles away from face and

z_ WARNING: Do not store or carry battery so that metal objects can contact exposed
battery terminals. For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets, toot boxes,
product kit boxes, drawers, etc. with loose nails, screws, keys, etc. without battery cap.
Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come
in contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US
Department of Transportation
Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit
transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e. packed in suitcases and carryon
luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting
individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well insulated
from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
