of injury when used on another blower.
■■ Do not handle battery or blower with wet hands.
■■ Do not put any object into openings. Do not use

■■ Turn off all controls before removing battery.
Secure long hair above shoulder level to prevent
entanglement in moving parts.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying blowers with your finger on the switch or
inserting the battery pack into a blower with the
switch on invites accidents.
■■ Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
■■ Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be
drawn into air vents.

contact with your skin, wash immediately with soap
and water. If liquid gets into your eyes, flush them
with clean water for at least 10 minutes, then seek
