Do not operate power tools in explosive environments (such as in the presence
of flammable liquids, gases, or dust), or use to pick up flammable or combustible
liquids. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this tool has a polarized plug one blade is
wider than the other and will require the use of a polarized extension cord. The
plug will fit into a polarized extension cord only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully into the extension cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, obtain a
correct polarized extension cord. A polarized extension cord will require the use of
a polarized wall outlet. This plug will fit into the polarized wall outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully into the wall outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper wall outlet. Do not change
the equipment plug, extension cord receptacle, or extension cord plug in any way.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.
Don’t expose power tools to rain or wet conditions; store indoors. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
Do not handle plug or tool with wet hands.
Use outdoor extension cords marked W-A, W, SW-A, SOW-A, STW-A, STOW-A,
SJW-A, SJTW-A, or SJTOW-A. These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
Never allow children to operate the equipment. Never allow adults to operate the
equipment without proper instruction.
Wear eye protection with side shields which is marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1
as well as hearing protection when operating this product.
Protect your lungs. Always wear a face or dust mask if the operation is dusty.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended
attachments.
Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all body parts away from openings, moving
parts and all hot surfaces of the unit.

Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not use on steps, a ladder, roof top, tree, or other unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the blower in unexpected
situations.
Keep firm footing and balance. Do not overreach. Overreaching can result in loss of
balance.
Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near
children.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure the power switch is not on before plugging in.
Do not leave the tool when plugged in. Unplug from the power outlet when not
in use, before servicing, and before storing the tool. Turn off all controls before
unplugging. Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool
accidentally.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
Do not use with damaged plug. If tool is not working as it should or has been
dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, take it to a qualified service
dealer for inspection and possible repair.
Keep all bystanders, children, and pets at least 50’ (15.24 m) away.
Do not operate this unit when you are tired, ill, upset or under the influence of
alcohol, drugs, or medication.
Do not operate in poor lighting.
Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep
openings free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow.
Check the work area before each use. Remove all objects such as rocks, broken
glass, nails, wire, or string which can be thrown or become entangled in the
machine.
Never use blower near fires, fireplaces, hot ashes, barbecue pits, etc., which may
cause fire to spread.

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. A wire
gauge size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension cord 50’ (15.24
m) or less in length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge
number, the heavier the cord. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage
resulting in loss of power and overheating.
Do not point the blower nozzle in the direction of people or pets.
Never place blower on any surface, except a hard, clean surface, when motor is
running. Gravel, sand, and other debris can be picked up by the air inlet and thrown
at the operator or bystanders, causing possible serious injuries.
Never run the unit without the proper equipment attached. Always ensure the blower
tubes are installed.
When not in use, blower should be stored indoors in a dry, locked-up place, out of
the reach of children.
Maintain tool with care. Keep fan area clean for best and safest performance.
Follow instructions for proper maintenance.
Do not attempt to clear clogs from tool without first unplugging it.
Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, or pull cord around sharp edges
or corners. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
If the power supply cord is damaged, stop using the unit. Take the unit to a qualified
service dealer for inspection and possible repair.
Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently and use them to instruct others
who may use this power tool. If you loan someone this power tool, loan them these
instructions also.

DOUBLE INSULATION
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power tools, which eliminates the need
for the usual three-wire grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are isolated from
the internal metal motor components with protecting insulation. Double-insulated tools
do not need to be grounded.

loss of power and the motor will overheat. If your product does not operate when plugged
into an outlet, double-check the power supply.
GFCI
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection should be provided on the circuit(s)
or outlet(s) to be used for the product.Receptacles are available having built-in GFCI
protection and may be used for this measure of safety.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Always
replace a damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified person before use.
Keep extension cords away from sharp objects, excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This circuit should comprise a wire
of at least 12 gauge and should be protected with a 15 A time-delayed fuse. Before
connecting the motor to the power line, make sure the switch is in the OFF position and
the electric current is identical to that stamped on the motor nameplate. Running at a
lower voltage will damage the motor.
GUIDELINES FOR USING EXTENSION CORDS
USE THE 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 overheating. The table
below shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere
rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
Note: Servicing of a product with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and should be
performed only by a qualified service technician. Take the
unit to a qualified service dealer for inspection and possible
repair using only identical replacement parts.
!
