GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING! Read all instructions
Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock,
fire, and/or serious injury. The term “power tool” in all of the warnings listed
below refers to your line-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
1.
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
2.
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.
3.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control. Protect others in the work area from
debris such as chips and sparks. Provide barriers or shields as needed.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1.
Grounded tools must be plugged into an outlet properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. Never remove the
grounding prong or modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether
the outlet is properly grounded. If the tools should electrically malfunction or
break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away
from the user.
2.
Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the
three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.
3.
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.
4.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
5.
Do not abuse the Power Cord. Never use the Power Cord to carry the
tools or pull the Plug from an outlet. Keep the Power Cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged Power Cords
immediately. Damaged Power Cords increase the risk of electric shock.
6.
When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord
marked “W-A” or “W”. These extension cords are rated for outdoor use, and
reduce the risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1.
Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
2.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
3.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure the Power Switch is off before plugging
in. Plugging in power tools with the Power Switch on invites accidents.

For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353
PAGE 3
4.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result
in personal injury.
5.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper
footing and balance enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
6.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
TOOL USE AND CARE
1.
Use clamps (not included) or other practical ways to secure and support
the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your
body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
2.
Do not force the 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.
3.
Do not use the power tool if the Power Switch does not turn it on or off.
Any tool that cannot be controlled with the Power Switch is dangerous and must
be replaced.
4.
Disconnect the Power Cord Plug from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
5.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools
are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
6.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained tools with a sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are easier
to control. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “Do not use” until
repaired.
7.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
and any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged,
have the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained tools.
8.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your
model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous
when used on another tool.

Vibration Hazard
This tool vibrates during use. Repeated or long-term exposure to vibration may
cause temporary or permanent physical injury, particularly to the hands, arms
and shoulders. To reduce the risk of vibration-related injury:
1.
Anyone using vibrating tools regularly or for an extended period should first
be examined by a doctor and then have regular medical check-ups to ensure
medical problems are not being caused or worsened from use. Pregnant women
or people who have impaired blood circulation to the hand, past hand injuries,
nervous system disorders, diabetes, or Raynaud’s Disease should not use this
tool. If you feel any medical or physical symptoms related to vibration (such as
tingling, numbness, and white or blue fingers), seek medical advice as soon as
possible.
2.
Do not smoke during use. Nicotine reduces the blood supply to the hands and
fingers, increasing the risk of vibration-related injury.
3.
Wear suitable gloves to reduce the vibration effects on the user.
4.
Use tools with the lowest vibration when there is a choice between different
processes.
5.
Include vibration-free periods each day of work.
6.
Grip tool as lightly as possible (while still keeping safe control of it). Let the tool

Grounding
WARNING
Improperly connecting the grounding wire can result in
electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to
whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify
the power cord plug provided with the tool. Never remove
the grounding prong from the plug. Do not use the tool if
the power cord or plug is damaged. If damaged, have it
repaired by a service facility before use. If the plug will not
fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
Grounded Tools: Tools with Three Prong Plugs
1.
Tools marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and three prong
grounding plug. The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet. If
the tool should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low
resistance path to carry electricity away from the user, reducing the risk of electric
shock. (See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)
2.
The grounding prong in the plug is connected through the green wire inside the
cord to the grounding system in the tool. The green wire in the cord must be the
only wire connected to the tool’s grounding system and must never be attached
to an electrically “live” terminal. (See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)
3.
The tool must be plugged into an appropriate outlet, properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. The plug and outlet
should look like those in the following illustration.
(See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)
3-Prong Plug and Outlet
Outlets for 2-Prong Plug
Double Insulated Tools: Tools with Two Prong Plugs
Note: This product uses a 2-prong plug.
1.
Tools marked “Double Insulated” do not require grounding. They have a special
double insulation system which satisfies OSHA requirements and complies
SKU 93853
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353
PAGE 9
with the applicable standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian
Standard Association, and the National Electrical Code.
(See Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
2.
Double insulated tools may be used in either of the 120 volt outlets shown in the
preceding illustration. (See Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
Extension Cords
1.
Grounded tools require a three wire extension cord. Double Insulated tools can
use either a two or three wire extension cord.
2.
As the distance from the supply outlet increases, you must use a heavier gauge
extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized wire causes a
serious drop in voltage, resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Table A.)
3.
The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord.
For example, a 14 gauge cord can carry a higher current than a 16 gauge cord.
(See Table A.)
4.
When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length, make
sure each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required. (See Table A.)
5.
If you are using one extension cord for more than one tool, add the nameplate
amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum cord size.
(See Table A.)
6.
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, make sure it is marked with the
suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.
7.
Make sure the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition.
Always replace a damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified
electrician before using it.
8.
Protect the extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or wet
areas.

Limited 1 year / 90 Day warranty
Harbor Freight Tools Co. makes every effort to assure that its products meet high
quality and durability standards, and warrants to the original purchaser that for a period
of ninety days from date of purchase that the engine/motor, the belts (if so equipped),
and the blades (if so equipped) are free of defects in materials and workmanship. Harbor
Freight Tools also warrants to the original purchaser, for a period of one year from date
of purchase, that all other parts and components of the product are free from defects in
materials and workmanship (90 days if used by a professional contractor or if used as rental
equipment). This warranty does not apply to damage due directly or indirectly, to misuse,
abuse, negligence or accidents, repairs or alterations outside our facilities, normal wear and
tear, or to lack of maintenance. We shall in no event be liable for death, injuries to persons
or property, or for incidental, contingent, special or consequential damages arising from
the use of our product. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, so the above limitation of exclusion may not apply to you. This
warranty is expressly in lieu of all other warranties, express or
implied, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness.
To take advantage of this warranty, the product or part must be returned to us with
transportation charges prepaid. Proof of purchase date and an explanation of the complaint
must accompany the merchandise. If our inspection verifies the defect, we will either
repair or replace the product at our election or we may elect to refund the purchase price
if we cannot readily and quickly provide you with a replacement. We will return repaired
products at our expense, but if we determine there is no defect, or that the defect resulted
from causes not within the scope of our warranty, then you must bear the cost of returning
the product.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from state to state.
