Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
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 power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
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
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will make sure that the safety of the power tool is
b. Power to the tool should always be supplied via
residual current device with a rated residual current
of 30mA or less.
Additional power tool safety warnings
Warning! Additional safety warnings for jigsaws.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces,
when performing an operation where the cutting
accessory may contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Cutting accessory 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
support 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.
Keep hands away from cutting area. Never reach
underneath the work piece for any reason. Do not insert
fingers or thumb into the vicinity of the reciprocating
blade and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by
gripping the shoe.
Keep blades sharp. Dull or damaged blades may
cause the saw to swerve or stall under pressure. Always
use the appropriate type of saw blade for the workpiece
material and type of cut.
When cutting pipe or conduit, make sure that they
are free from water, electrical wiring, etc.
Do not touch the workpiece or the blade
immediately after operating the tool. They can
become very hot.
Be aware of hidden hazards, before cutting into
walls, floors or ceilings, check for the location of
wiring and pipes.
The blade will continue to move after releasing the
switch. Always switch the tool off and wait for the saw
blade to come to a complete standstill before putting the
Warning! Contact with, or inhalation of dusts arising from
cutting applications may endanger the health of the operator
and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically
designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure
that persons within or entering the work area are also
The intended use is described in this instruction manual.
The use of any accessory or attachment or performance
of any operation with this tool other than those
recommended in this instruction manual may present a
risk of personal injury and/or damage to property.
Safety of others
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a
person responsible for the their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
The declared vibration emission values stated in the
technical data and the declaration of conformity have been
measured in accordance with a standard test method
provided by EN 60745 and may be used for comparing one
tool with another. The declared vibration emission value may
also be 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.
When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety
measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons
regularly using power tools in employment, an estimation of
vibration exposure should consider, the actual conditions of
use and the way the tool is used, including taking account of
all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the
tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to
the trigger time.
