POWER TOOL SAFETY
! WARNING: Read all safety warnings
and instructions. Failure to follow the
warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
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.
Save all warnings and instructions for
future reference.
If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply.
Use of a ground fault circuit interrupter
(GFCI) reduces the risk of electric shock.
Work area safety
Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
Personal safety
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.
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.
Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
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.
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.
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 energizing power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
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.
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.
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.

POWER TOOL SAFETY
PERSONAL SAFETY – cont’d
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
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.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair
can be caught in moving parts.
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.
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.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
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.
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.
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.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces, when performing an operation
where the fastener may contact hidden
wiring or its own cord. Fasteners
contacting a "live" wire may make exposed
metal parts of the power tool "live" and
could give the operator an electric shock.
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.

ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
LITHIUM-ION BATTERY
PERFORMANCE
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries
generally provide superior performance to
nickel-cadmium batteries when used in
power tools.
● Faster charges
● Longer battery life
● More power
● Lighter weight
Lithium-ion batteries perform best and
deliver peak output power at room
temperature (20° C or 68° F). When
operated in lower temperatures, the
battery output will be reduced and it will
NOT function below –20° C (–4° F). The
output power will increase as the heat
generated by the battery during use
increases the internal temperature of the
battery. The result is increased power as
the tool is used.
