INJURY HAZARD!
• This tool has high-speed, highly abrasive cutting surfaces which can quickly
cause severe injury. Keep fingers and hands away from moving parts when
operating. Wear thick, well-fitting work gloves and keep loose clothing,
sleeves, cords, jewelry and hair away from moving parts.
• This tool will eject sparks at high speed which can ignite flammable materials or injure others nearby. Do not operate near flammable materials and
keep all persons and pets away from the work area.
• Do not force tool or exert excessive side forces on tool while in use as the
tool body can suddenly kick back or twist causing severe hand or wrist
injury. Grinding wheels can be damaged with excessive side force causing
them to disintegrate and eject sharp pieces at high velocity.
• Always make sure the workpiece is securely clamped or anchored to avoid
sudden movements which could result in injury.
• Frequently inspect Grinding wheel and tool condition. If cracks develop,
discontinue tool use immediately and replace damaged wheel. ONLY USE
replacement 4” Grinding Wheels rated for 10,000 RPM or greater use otherwise severe injury or death can result in the event of wheel failure.
• Always disconnect tool from air supply when changing Grinding wheel to
prevent accidental tool starting and potential severe injury.
VIBRATION INJURY HAZARD!

inlet, rotate the tool motor by hand several times to distribute the oil throughout the motor and
gearbox then store the tool, handle up.
