DOUBLE INSULATION
Doublelnsulatlon ts a concept tn safety tn electric power
tools, whicheliminates the need for the usualthree-wire
grounded power cord_All exposed metal parts are
isolatedfrom the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
'_
WARNING: The doubleinsulated system is
intended to protect the user from shock resulting
from a break in the tool's internalinsulation, Observe
a{tnormal safety precautionsto avoid electdcat
shock,

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Thistool has a precision-built electric motorr It should be
connectedto a power supply that is 120 rolL% 60 Hz,
AC only {normalhouseholdcurrenl_.Do not operate
thistool on direct current (DC}.A substantial voltage drop
wiltcause a toss of power and the motor will overheat,if
your toot does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double-check the power supptyo
EXTENSION
CORDS
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in tine voltage, resulting
in overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to deter-
mine the minimum wire size required in an extens(on cord°
Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Labora-
tories (UL) should be used,
When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension
cord that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is
designated with "WA" on the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for toose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
