19. 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, mount-
ing, and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or other part
that is damaged should be properly
repaired or replaced.
20. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a
blade or cutter against the direction of
rotation of the blade or cutter only.
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool to a power source (receptacle, outlet, etc.)
be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the nameplate of the tool. A
power source with voltage greater than that specified for the tool can result in SERIOUS
INJURY to the user - as well as damage to the tool. If in doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE
TOOL. Using a power source with voltage less than the nameplate rating is harmful to the
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. 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 and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage num-
ber, the heavier the cord.

21. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNAT-
TENDED. TURN POWER OFF. Don't leave
tool until it comes to a complete stop.
22. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing
use only identical replacement parts.
23. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this equipment has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). This plug will fit in a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified elec-
trician to install the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way.
