READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY
GENERAL SAFETY RULES FOR ALL POWER TOOLS
WARNING: Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow all warnings and
instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep the work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away 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 adaptor plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
b) 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.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) 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.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a ground-fault
circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of electric
shock.
