Power tool use and care

Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for
your application. The correct power tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on
and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack from the power tool before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do
not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding
of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool´s operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into account
the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use
of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in hazardous situations.
Never use a machine that has been modified in any way
from its original specification.
Make sure that no pipes or electrical cables are routed in
the area to be cut.
Always check and mark out where gas pipes are routed.
Cutting close to gas pipes always entails danger. Make
sure that sparks are not caused when cutting in view of
the risk of explosion. Remain concentrated and focused
on the task. Carelessness can result in serious personal
injury or death.
The guard for the cutting equipment must always be on
when the machine is running.
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person
unsing only identical replacement parts. This will ensure
that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
