Use safety goggles or safety glasses with side
shields, complying with applicable safety standards
and, when needed, a face shield. Also use face or
dust mask if operation is dusty. This applies to all
persons in the work area. Also use a hard hat, hearing

f Stay alert. Watch what you are doing. Use common
sense. Do not operate tool when you are tired.
f 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
f Do not operate portable electric tools near
flammable liquids or in gaseous or explosive
atmospheres. Motors in these tools normally spark,
and the sparks might ignite fumes.

outdoors, use only extension cords intended for use
outdoors and so marked.
f 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
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
