Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized
plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will
fit into 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 alter the plug in any
way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three

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.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.

cord or have it repaired by a qualified electrician before
using it. Protect your extension cord from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your power tools.
This circuit must not be less than 14 gauge wire and
should be protected with either a 15 Ampere time delay
fuse or circuit breaker. Before connecting the power tool
to the power source, make sure the switch is in the OFF
position and the power source is the same as indicated on
the nameplate. Running at lower voltage will damage the
