f. 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 and in the
manner intended for the particular type of power tool,
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 hazardous situation.
5. Battery tool use and care
a. Ensure the switch is in the off position before
inserting battery pack.
Inserting the battery pack into power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
b. Recharge only with the charger speciﬁed by the
A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may
create a risk of ﬁre when used with another battery pack.
c. Use power tools only with speciﬁcally designated
Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury
d. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails,
screws, or other small metal objects that can make
a connection from one terminal to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns
or a ﬁre.
e. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally
occurs, ﬂush with water. If liquid contacts eyes,
additionally seek medical help.
Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
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.
Additional safety instructions for impact drills
Wear ear protectors with impact drills. Exposure to
noise can cause hearing loss.
Use auxiliary handles supplied with the tool. Loss of
control can cause personal injury.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a
"live" wire will also make exposed metal parts of the power
tool "live" and shock the operator.
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.
Additional safety instructions for drill/screwdrivers
Before drilling into walls, ﬂoors or ceilings, check for the
location of wiring and pipes.
Avoid touching the tip of a drill bit just after drilling, as it
may be hot.
