General power tool safety warnings
Warning! Read all safety
warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings
and instructions listed below
may result in electric shock,
fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for
future reference. The term "power tool" in
all of the warnings listed below refers to your
mains operated (corded) power tool or battery

1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.

while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the
outlet. Never modify the plug in any
way. Do not use any adapter plugs with

grounded surfaces such as pipes,
radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric

wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.

Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
