Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term "power tool" in
all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-opearted (cordless) power tool.

WORK AREA SAFETY

1.
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite
accidents.
2.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such
as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust.
Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
3.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power
tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

4.
Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the
plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets
will reduce risk of electric shock.
5.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such
as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water
entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
7.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying,
pulling, or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Damaged or entangled
cords increase the risk of electric shock.
8.
When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension
cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor
use reduces the risk of electric shock.

PERSONAL SAFETY

9.
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense
when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while
you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools
may result in serious personal injury.
10. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce per-
sonal injuries.
11. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-
position before plugging in. Carrying tools with your finger on
the switch or plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
12. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the
power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of
the power tool may result in personal injury.
13. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
14. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
15. If devices are provided for the connection of dust extrac-
tion and collection facilities, ensure these are connected
and properly used. Use of these devices can reduce dust-re-
lated hazards.

WARNING!
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
16. 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.
17. 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.
18. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the bat-
tery pack from the power tool before making any adjust-
ments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool acci-
dentally.
19. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do
not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tools or these
instructions to operate power tools. Power tools are danger-
ous in the hands of untrained users.
20. 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.
21. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting
tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier
to control.
22. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in accor-
dance with these instructions and in the manner intended
for the particular type of power tool, 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 a hazardous situation.
23. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person
using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
