Warning! When using electric tools, the following basic
safety precautions should always be taken to reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock and personal injury.
Read all these instructions before attempting to
operate this product and save these instructions.
For safe operation:
• We recommend that you take appropriate measures
for the protection of hearing if the sound pressure of
85 dB (A) is exceeded.
• Keep the work area clean. Cluttered areas and
benches invite injuries.
• Consider work area environment. Do not expose
power tools to rain and do not use power tools in
damp or wet locations. Keep the work area well lit.
Do not use power tools where there is a risk to
cause fire or explosion.
• Guard against electric shock. Avoid body contact
where possible with earthed or grounded surfaces
(e.g. pipes, radiators, ranges, refrigerators).
• Keep children away. Do not let visitors touch the
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 a dry, high or locked place, out of reach
of children.
• Do not force the tool. It will do the job better and
more safely at the rate for which it was intended.
• Use the right tool. Do not force small tools or
attachments to do the job of a heavy duty tool. Do
not use tools for purposes not intended; for example,
do not use a circular saw to cut tree limbs or logs.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery as 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. Use a face or dust mask as well
if the operation is dusty or if using in enclosed spaces.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never carry the tool by its
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the socket.
Keep the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
• Secure your work. Use clamps or a vice to hold your
work. It is safer than using your hand and it frees
both hands to operate the tool.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
• Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting 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 an authorised service
facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and
replace if damaged. Keep handles dry, clean and
free from oil and grease.
• Disconnect tools. Disconnect when not in use,
before servicing and when changing accessories
such as blades, bits and cutters.
• Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form the
habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from the tool and replaced in
the storage area before switching on.
• Avoid unintentional starting. Do not carry a
plugged-in tool with a finger on the switch. Ensure
the switch is off when plugging in.
• Use outdoor extension cords. When a tool is used
outdoors, use only extension cords intended for
outdoor use and so marked.
• Stay alert. Watch what you are doing. Use common
sense. Do not operate tools when you are tired.
• Connect dust extraction equipment. If devices are
provided for the connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used, especially in confined areas.
• Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool,
a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine whether it will
operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, free running 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 authorised
service centre unless otherwise indicated in this
instruction manual. Have defective switches
replaced by an authorised service centre. Do not
use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
• Warning! The use of any accessory or attachment,
other than recommended in this instruction manual,
may present a risk of personal injury.
• Have your tool repaired by a qualified person. This
electrical tool is in accordance with the relevant
safety requirements. Repairs should only be carried
out by qualified persons using original spare parts,
otherwise this may result in considerable danger to
the user.
• Use the guard and ensure it is fitted correctly.
