GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING - READ ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AND ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock, fire
and/or personal injury.
SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded)
power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
The Arbortech Mini Grinder is designed and built to meet and exceed
Australian and International Safety Standards.
Use only Arbortech approved or other qualified service centres for the
servicing and/or repair of this tool. For further assistance contact Arbortech.
The Arbortech Mini Grinder is double insulated to provide the highest
possible operator protection from electric shock. Please observe all
necessary safety precautions to avoid electric shock. Do not operate this tool
until you have read and understood all safety instructions and rules of
operation. Failure to comply with these instructions can result in serious
accidents including fire, electric shock or serious personal injury.
1)
WORK AREA SAFETY
• Keep work area well ventilated, clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas
invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to loose control.
MIN.PK.BOOK300-140916.qxp_Layout 1 15/09/2016 3:05 PM Page 4
2)
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
• Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way.
Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
• Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes,
radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock
if your body is earthed or grounded.
• Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling, or
unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
• When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for
outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
• If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock. Note: The term “Residual Current Device (RCD)” may be replaced
by the term “ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)” or “earth leakage circuit
breaker (ELCB)”
3)
PERSONAL SAFETY
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating
a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
• Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
• Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to a power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
MIN.PK.BOOK300-140916.qxp_Layout 1 15/09/2016 3:05 PM Page 5
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unexpected situations
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
• If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection
facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust
collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4)
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
• Do not force the power tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
• Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
thatcannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
• Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
• Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons
unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• 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 edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
• 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 hazardous situation.
5)
SERVICE
• 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.
