Printed: 01.07.2014 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5169273 / 000 / 02
5.1.1 Work area safety
a)
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
5.1.2 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.
b) 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.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
d) 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.
e) 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.
f) 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.
a)
5.1.3 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.
b) 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.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off‐position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
d) 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.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves
a)
away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery
or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) 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.
5.1.4 Power tool use and care
Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct power
tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for
which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not
turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be
repaired.
c) 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
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) 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.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power
tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained power tools.
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, 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.

operations
This power tool is intended to function as a
grinder, wire brush or cut-off tool. Read all safety
warnings, instructions, illustrations and specifications provided with this power tool. Failure to
follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
b) Operations such as sanding and polishing are not
recommended to be performed with this power
tool Operations for which the power tool was not
a)
5
Printed: 01.07.2014 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5169273 / 000 / 02
en
en
designed may create a hazard and cause personal
injury.
c) Do not use accessories which are not specifically
designed and recommended by the tool manufacturer. Just because the accessory can be attached
to your power tool, it does not assure safe operation.
d) The rated speed of the accessory must be at
least equal to the maximum speed marked on the
power tool. Accessories running faster than their
rated speed can break and fly apart.
e) The outside diameter and the thickness of your
accessory must be within the capacity rating of
your power tool. Incorrectly sized accessories cannot be adequately guarded or controlled.
f) The arbour size of wheels, flanges, backing pads
or any other accessory must properly fit the spindle of the power tool. Accessories with arbour holes
that do not match the mounting hardware of the
power tool will run out of balance, vibrate excessively and may cause loss of control.
g) Do not use a damaged accessory. Before each
use inspect the accessory such as abrasive
wheels for chips and cracks, backing pad for
cracks, tear or excess wear, wire brush for loose
or cracked wires. If power tool or accessory
is dropped, inspect for damage or install an
undamaged accessory. After inspecting and
installing an accessory, position yourself and
bystanders away from the plane of the rotating
accessory and run the power tool at maximum
no-load speed for one minute. Damaged
accessories will normally break apart during this test
time.
h) Wear personal protective equipment. Depending
on application, use face shield, safety goggles or
safety glasses. As appropriate, wear dust mask,
hearing protectors, gloves and workshop apron
capable of stopping small abrasive or workpiece
fragments. The eye protection must be capable
of stopping flying debris generated by various
operations. The eye protection must be capable of
stopping flying debris generated by various operations. The dust mask or respirator must be capable of
filtrating particles generated by your operation. Prolonged exposure to high intensity noise may cause
hearing loss.
i) Keep bystanders a safe distance away from
work area. Anyone entering the work area must
wear personal protective equipment. Fragments
of workpiece or of a broken accessory may fly
away and cause injury beyond immediate area of
operation.
j) Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces
only, when performing an operation where the
cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring or
its own cord. Cutting accessory contacting a "live"
wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool
"live" and could give the operator an electric shock.
k) Position the cord clear of the spinning accessory.
If you lose control, the cord may be cut or snagged
and your hand or arm may be pulled into the spinning
accessory.
6
Printed: 01.07.2014 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5169273 / 000 / 02
Never lay the power tool down until the accessory has come to a complete stop. The spinning
accessory may grab the surface and pull the power
tool out of your control.
m) Do not run the power tool while carrying it at your
side. Accidental contact with the spinning accessory
could snag your clothing, pulling the accessory into
your body.
n) Regularly clean the power tool’s air vents. The
motor’s fan will draw the dust inside the housing
and excessive accumulation of powdered metal may
cause electrical hazards.
o) Do not operate the power tool near flammable
materials. Sparks could ignite these materials.
p) Do not use accessories that require liquid
coolants. Using water or other liquid coolants may
result in electrocution or shock.
l)
5.3 Kickback and related warnings
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched or snagged
rotating wheel, backing pad, brush or any other accessory. Pinching or snagging causes rapid stalling of the
rotating accessory which in turn causes the uncontrolled
power tool to be forced in the direction opposite of the
accessory’s rotation at the point of the binding.
For example, if an abrasive wheel is snagged or pinched
by the workpiece, the edge of the wheel that is entering
into the pinch point can dig into the surface of the material
causing the wheel to climb out or kick out. The wheel may
either jump toward or away from the operator, depending
on direction of the wheel’s movement at the point of
pinching. Abrasive wheels may also break under these
conditions.
Kickback is the result of power tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be
avoided by taking proper precautions as given below.
Maintain a firm grip on the power tool and position your body and arm to allow you to resist
kickback forces. Always use auxiliary handle, if
provided, for maximum control over kickback or
torque reaction during start-up. The operator can
control torque reactions or kickback forces, if proper
precautions are taken.
b) Never place your hand near the rotating accessory. Accessory may kickback over your hand.
c) Do not position your body in the area where power
tool will move if kickback occurs. Kickback will
propel the tool in direction opposite to the wheel’s
movement at the point of snagging.
d) Use special care when working corners, sharp
edges etc. Avoid bouncing and snagging the accessory. Corners, sharp edges or bouncing have a
tendency to snag the rotating accessory and cause
loss of control or kickback.
e) Do not attach a saw chain woodcarving blade or
toothed saw blade. Such blades create frequent
kickback and loss of control.
a)
5.4 Safety warnings specific for grinding and
abrasive cutting-off operations
Use only wheel types that are recommended for
your power tool and the specific guard designed
for the selected wheel. Wheels for which the power
tool was not designed cannot be adequately guarded
and are unsafe.
b) The grinding surface of centre depressed wheels
must be mounted below the plane of the guard lip.
An improperly mounted wheel that projects through
the plane of the guard lip cannot be adequately
protected.
c) The guard must be securely attached to the power
tool and positioned for maximum safety, so the
least amount of wheel is exposed towards the operator. The guard helps to protect operator from broken wheel fragments, accidental contact with wheel
and sparks that could ignite clothing.
d) Wheels must be used only for recommended applications. For example: do not grind with the
side of cut-off wheel. Abrasive cut-off wheels are
intended for peripheral grinding, side forces applied
to these wheels may cause them to shatter.
e) Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are of
correct size and shape for your selected wheel.
Proper wheel flanges support the wheel thus reducing the possibility of wheel breakage. Flanges for
cut-off wheels may be different from grinding wheel
flanges.
f) Do not use worn down wheels from larger power
tools. Wheel intended for larger power tool is not
suitable for the higher speed of a smaller tool and
may burst.
e)
a)
5.5 Additional safety warnings specific for abrasive
cutting-off operations
Do not "jam" the cut-off wheel or apply excessive
pressure. Do not attempt to make an excessive
depth of cut. Overstressing the wheel increases the
loading and susceptibility to twisting or binding of
the wheel in the cut and the possibility of kickback or
wheel breakage.
b) Do not position your body in line with and behind
the rotating wheel. When the wheel, at the point
of operation, is moving away from your body, the
possible kickback may propel the spinning wheel
and the power tool directly at you.
c) When wheel is binding or when interrupting a cut
for any reason, switch off the power tool and hold
the power tool motionless until the wheel comes
to a complete stop. Never attempt to remove the
cut-off wheel from the cut while the wheel is in
motion otherwise kickback may occur.Investigate
and take corrective action to eliminate the cause of
wheel binding.
d) Do not restart the cutting operation in the workpiece. Let the wheel reach full speed and carefully
re-enter the cut. The wheel may bind, walk up or
kickback if the power tool is restarted in the workpiece.
a)
f)
Support panels or any oversized workpiece to
minimize the risk of wheel pinching and kickback.
Large workpieces tend to sag under their own weight.
Supports must be placed under the workpiece near
the line of cut and near the edge of the workpiece on
both sides of the wheel.
Use extra caution when making a "pocket cut"
into existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding wheel may cut gas or water pipes, electrical
wiring or objects that can cause kickback.
5.6 Safety warnings specific for wire brushing
operations
Be aware that wire bristles are thrown by the
brush even during ordinary operation. Do not
overstress the wires by applying excessive load
to the brush. The wire bristles can easily penetrate
light clothing and/or skin.
b) If the use of a guard is recommended for wire
brushing, do not allow any interference of the
wire wheel or brush with the guard. Wire wheel or
brush may expand in diameter due to work load and
centrifugal forces.
a)
5.7 Additional safety instructions
5.7.1 Personal safety
Wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can cause
hearing loss.
b) Always hold the power tool securely with both
hands on the grips provided. Keep the grips dry,
clean and free from oil and grease.
c) Breathing protection must be worn if the power
tool is used without a dust removal system for
work that creates dust.
d) Improve the blood circulation in your fingers by
relaxing your hands and exercising your fingers
during breaks between working.
e) Avoid touching rotating parts. Switch the power
tool on only after bringing it into position at the
workpiece. Touching rotating parts, especially rotating insert tools, may lead to injury.
f) Always lead the supply cord and extension cord
away from the power tool to the rear while working. This helps to avoid tripping over the cord while
working.
g) Children must be instructed not to play with the
power tool.
h) The power tool is not intended for use by children,
by debilitated persons or those who have received
no instruction or training.
i) Before beginning the work, check the hazard classification of the dust that will be produced. Use
an industrial vacuum cleaner with an officially
approved protection classification in compliance
with locally applicable dust protection regulations.
j) WARNING: Some dust created by grinding, sanding, cutting and drilling contains chemicals known
to cause cancer, birth defects, infertility or other
a)
7
Printed: 01.07.2014 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5169273 / 000 / 02
en
reproductive harm; or serious and permanent respiratory or other injury. Some examples of these
chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks, concrete and other masonry
products and natural stone, arsenic and chromium
from chemically-treated lumber. Your risk from these
exposures varies, depending on how often you do
this type of work. To reduce exposure to these
chemicals, the operator and bystanders should
work in a well-ventilated area, work with approved safety equipment, such as respiratory protection appropriate for the type of dust generated,
and designed to filter out microscopic particles
and direct dust away from the face and body.
Avoid prolonged contact with dust. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas with soap
and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth,
eyes, or to remain on your skin may promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
en
5.7.2 Power tool use and care
Grinding discs must be stored and handled carefully in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
b) Check that the grinding disc is fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
c) If use of a spacer ring or other intermediate part is
specified and the part is supplied with the grinding
disc, check to ensure that the part is fitted.
d) Before use, check that the cutting disc has been
fitted correctly and the clamping nut tightened.
Then allow the power tool to run for 60 seconds
under no load while holding it securely. Switch off
the power tool immediately if significant vibration
or any other faults are noticed. Should this occur,
examine the power tool in order to determine the
cause.
e) Never use the power tool without the guard.
f) The workpiece must be fixed securely in place.
g) Do not use cutting discs for grinding.
h) After disc breakage, or if the power tool is
dropped, falls or suffers other mechanical
damage, it must be checked at a Hilti Service
Center.
i) Take steps to ensure that flying sparks from the
power tool do not present a hazard, i.e. by striking
yourself, other persons or inflammable materials.
Adjust the position of the guard accordingly.
j) In case of an interruption in the electric supply:
Switch the power tool off and unplug the supply
cord. This will prevent accidental restarting when the
electric power returns.
a)
5.7.3 Electrical safety
Before beginning work, check the working area
(e.g. using a metal detector) to ensure that no
concealed electric cables or gas and water pipes
are present. External metal parts of the power tool
may become live, for example, when an electric cable
is damaged accidentally. This presents a serious risk
of electric shock.
b) Check the power tool’s supply cord at regular
intervals and have it replaced by a qualified specialist if found to be damaged. If the machine’s
supply cord is damaged it must be replaced with
a specially-prepared and approved supply cord
available from Hilti Customer Service. Check extension cords at regular intervals and replace
them if found to be damaged. Do not touch the
supply cord or extension cord if it is damaged
while working. Disconnect the mains plug from
the power outlet. Damaged supply cords or extension cords present a risk of electric shock.
c) Dirty or dusty power tools which have been used
frequently for work on conductive materials
should be checked at regular intervals at a Hilti
Service Center. Under unfavorable circumstances,
dampness or dust adhering to the surface of
the power tool, especially dust from conductive
materials, may present a risk of electric shock.
d) When working outdoors with an electric tool
check to ensure that the tool is connected to the
electric supply by way of a ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) with a rating of max. 30 mA
(tripping current). Use of a ground fault circuit
interrupter reduces the risk of electric shock.
e) Use of a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)
with a maximum tripping current of 30 mA is
recommended.
a)
5.7.4 Work area
a) Ensure that the workplace is well lit.
b) Ensure that the workplace is well ventilated. Exposure to dust at a poorly ventilated workplace may
result in damage to the health.
5.7.5 Personal protective equipment

gloves when changing insert tools.
NOTE
Adjust the position of the guard to suit the requirements
of the work being done.
DANGER
Wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss.
WARNING
Test new cutting or grinding discs by allowing them
to run at maximum speed in a protected area for at
least 60 seconds.
WARNING
Slits cut in loadbearing walls of buildings or other structures may influence the statics of the structure, especially
when steel reinforcing bars or load-bearing components
are cut through. Consult the structural engineer, architect, or person in charge of the building project
before beginning the work.
WARNING
The electric supply voltage must comply with the
information given on the type identification plate on
the power tool.
WARNING
Always use the side handle with the power tool.
WARNING
Never use the power tool without the guard.
CAUTION
Use clamps or a vice to hold the workpiece securely.
WARNING
Cutting or grinding may cause splintering of the material.
Wear eye protection.
DANGER
The operator and bystanders must wear breathing
protection if the work causes dust.
WARNING
Avoid touching rotating parts. Switch the power tool
on only after bringing it into position at the workpiece.
Touching rotating parts, especially rotating insert tools,
may lead to injury.

Printed: 01.07.2014 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5169273 / 000 / 02
WARNING
Reduce the load on the power tool by avoiding tilting the disc in the kerf when cutting. The disc may
otherwise break, or the power tool may kick back or stall.
CAUTION
Improve the blood circulation in your fingers by relaxing your hands and exercising your fingers during
breaks between working.
WARNING
Keep inflammable materials away from the working
area.
CAUTION
In accordance with the applications for which it is designed, the power tool produces a high torque. Always
use the side handle and hold the power tool with both
hands. The user must be prepared for sudden sticking
and stalling of the insert tool.
CAUTION
Working on the material may cause it to splinter. Wear
eye protection and protective gloves. Wear breathing
protection if no dust removal system is used. Splintering material presents a risk of injury to the eyes and
body.
7.1 Rough grinding
CAUTION
Never use abrasive cutting discs for grinding.
Best results are obtained when the disc maintains an
angle of 5° to 30° with the working surface when grinding.
Move the power tool to and fro while applying moderate
pressure. This will avoid overheating and discoloration of
the workpiece and ensure an even surface finish.
7.2 Cutting
When cutting, apply moderate feed pressure and do not
tilt the power tool or, respectively, the cutting disc (hold
at approx. 90° to the surface being cut). For best results,
start cutting at the smallest cross section when cutting
profiles and square tube.
7.3 Switching on / off
In the event of motor overload due to application of
excessive pressure to the disc, performance will drop
noticeably or the power tool may stop running (avoid
stalling the power tool in this way). Permissible tool
overload cannot be given as a specific value as it depends
on the temperature of the motor. If the power tool has
been overloaded, release the pressure applied and then
allow it to run under no load for approx. 30 seconds.

8 Care and maintenance
CAUTION
Disconnect the mains plug from the power outlet.
8.1 Care of the power tool
DANGER
When working on metal under extreme conditions, conductive dust may accumulate inside the power tool. This
may negatively affect the power tool’s protective insulation. Under such conditions, the tool should be
plugged into a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)
and use of a stationary dust removal system and
frequent cleaning of the tool’s cooling air slots is
recommended.
The outer casing of the power tool is made from impactresistant plastic. Sections of the grip are made from a
synthetic rubber material.
Never operate the power tool when the air vents are
blocked. Regularly clean the power tool’s air vents carefully with a dry brush. Do not permit foreign objects to
enter the interior of the tool. The motor’s fan will draw
dust into the casing and an excessive accumulation of
conductive dust (e.g. metal, carbon fiber) may cause
electrical hazards. Clean the outside of the power tool at
regular intervals with a slightly damp cloth. Do not use
a spray, steam pressure cleaning equipment or running
water for cleaning. This may negatively affect the electrical safety of the tool. Always keep the grip surfaces
of the tool free from oil and grease. Do not use cleaning
agents which contain silicone.
NOTE
Frequent work on conductive materials (e.g. metal, carbon fiber) may make shorter maintenance intervals necessary. Take your individual work place risk assessment
into account.
8.2 Maintenance
WARNING
Do not operate the tool if parts are damaged or when
the controls do not function faultlessly. If necessary,
the power tool should be repaired by Hilti Service.
WARNING
Repairs to the electrical section of the power tool may
be carried out only by trained electrical specialists.
Check all external parts of the power tool for damage
at regular intervals and check that all controls operate
faultlessly.
8.3 Checking the power tool after care and
maintenance
