GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION
OR BREAKDOWN, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric
current to reduce the risk of electric
shock. This tool is equipped with an
electric cord having an equipment
grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into a
matching outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE 3-PRONG
PLUG. If it will not fit the outlet, have the
proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor can
create a risk of shock. The conductor
with insulation having an outer surface
that is green (sometimes, but not always
with yellow stripes) is the equipment
grounding conductor.
REPAIR OR REPLACE DAMAGED OR
WORN CORD IMMEDIATELY, if repair
or replacement of the electric cord or
plug is ever necessary. DO NOT connect
the equipment-grounding conductor to
a live terminal,
7. ALWAYS hold tool firmly.
8. NEVER connect tool to a DC
power source.
9. REGULAR CLEANING, inspection
and maintenance is necessary.

outlet. The adapter (FIGURE B) has a
rigid lug extending from it that MUST
be connected to a permanent earth
ground, such as a properly grounded
outlet box. The Canadian Electrical
Code prohibits the use of adapters.
USE ONLY 3-WIRE EXTENSION

GROUNDING PLUGS AND 3-POLE
RECEPTACLES THAT ACCEPT THE

ACCESSORIES
If you have any doubts as to whether
the tool is properly grounded or if the
grounding instructions are unclear,
check with a qualified electrician or
service technician.When
using a
grounded tool around other ungrounded
devices, be sure that the ungrounded
devices are in good condition. An
ungrounded device can function, yet
have internal electrical problems that
could cause a hazard when brought in
contact with a grounded tool.
THE ADAPTER SHOULD ONLY BE USED
until a properly grounded outlet can
be installed by a qualified electrician.
