c. 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.
d. 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.

binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly

maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less
likely to bind and are easier to control.

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 a hazardous situation.

person using only identical replacement parts. This
will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Additional power tool safety warnings
Warning! Additional safety warnings for drills and
impact drills
Wear ear protectors with impact drills. Exposure to
noise can cause hearing loss.
Use auxiliary handles supplied with the tool. Loss of
control can cause personal injury.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting accessory
may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Cutting ac-
cessory contacting a "live" wire may make exposed metal
parts of the power tool "live" and could give the operator
an electric shock
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the fastener may con-
tact hidden wiring or its own cord. Fasteners contacting
a "live" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power
tool "live" and could give the operator an electric shock.
Use clamps or another practical way to secure and sup-
port the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work
by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may
lead to loss of control.

used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of
the power tool can differ from the declared value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may
increase above the level stated.
