READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
General Safety Warnings and Instructions for All Tools
• KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
• CONSIDER WORK AREA ENVIRONMENT. Don't expose power tools to rain. Don't use power tools in
damp or wet locations. Keep work area well lit. Do not use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases.
• GUARD AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK. Prevent body contact with grounded surfaces. For example; pipes,
radiators, ranges, and refrigerator enclosures.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. Do not let visitors contact tool or extension cord. All visitors should be kept away
from work area.
• STORE IDLE TOOLS. When not in use, tools should be stored in dry, and high or locked-up place — out of
reach of children.
• DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was intended.
• USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force small tool or attachment to do the job of a heavy-duty tool. Don't use tool
for purpose not intended.
• DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught in moving parts. Rubber
gloves and non-skid footwear are recommended when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering
to contain long hair.
• USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty.
• DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by cord or yank it to disconnect from receptacle. Keep cord from
heat, oil, and sharp edges.
• SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work. It's safer than using your hand and it frees both hands
to operate tool.
• DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
• MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer performance. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged, have
repaired by authorized service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if damaged. Keep
handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.
• DISCONNECT OR LOCK OFF TOOLS when not in use, before servicing, and when changing accessories,
such as blades, bits, cutters.
• REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from tool before turning it on.
• AVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don't carry tool with finger on switch. Be sure switch is off when
• EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord,
be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows the
correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
Total Length of Cord in Feet
• OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is used outdoors, use only extension cords intended for
use outdoors and so marked.
• STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing. Use common sense. Do not operate tool when you are tired.

Minimum Gage for Cord Sets
• CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for
alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced
by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Have
defective switches replaced by authorized service center. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on and off.
Safety Warnings and Instructions: Double Insulation
Double insulated tools are constructed throughout with two separate layers of electrical insulation or one
double thickness of insulation between you and the tool's electrical system. Tools built with this insulation
system are not intended to be grounded. As a result, your tool is equipped with a two prong plug which
permits you to use extension cords without concern for maintaining a ground connection.
NOTE: Double insulation does not take the place of normal safety precautions when operating this tool. The
insulation system is for added protection against injury resulting from a possible electrical insulation failure
within the tool.
CAUTION: WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS. Repair or replace damaged
Safety Warnings and Instructions: Polarized Plugs
Polarized plugs (one blade is wider than the other) are used on equipment to reduce the risk of electric shock.
When provided, this plug will fit in the polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber (CCA).
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To
reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out
The label on your tool may include the following symbols.
