loss of consciousness and can lead to death. If running
in a confined or partially-enclosed area, the air may
contain a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide. To
keep exhaust fumes from building up, always provide

sick, dizzy, or weak while using the generator, shut it off
and get to fresh air immediately. See a doctor. You may
have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Place the generator on a flat, stable surface with a slope
of no more than 4°.
Operate in a well-ventilated, well-lit area isolated from
working areas to avoid noise interference.
Operating the generator in wet conditions could result in
electrocution. Keep the unit dry.
Keep the generator a minimum of 1m away from all

networks the total length of lines for a cross section of
should not exceed 60m; for a cross section of
this should not exceed 100m.
