Power tool use and care
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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.
21. 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.
22. 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.
23. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
24. 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.
Service
25. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair
person
using
only
identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that the
safety of the power tool is maintained.
26. Follow instruction for lubricating and
changing accessories.
27. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
7.
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.
8.
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.
9.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD
reduces the risk of electric shock.
10. Use of power supply via a RCD with a rated
residual current of 30mA or less is always
recommended.
Personal safety
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. 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 energising power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
14. 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.
15. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
16. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving
parts.
17. 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 dustrelated hazards.

the least amount of wheel is exposed towards
the operator. The guard helps to protect operator
from broken wheel fragments and accidental
contact with wheel.
Use only diamond cut-off wheel for your
power tool. Just because the accessory can be
attached to your power tool, it does not assure
safe operation.
The rated speed of the wheel must be at least
equal to the maximum speed marked on the
power tool. Wheels running faster than their
rated speed can break and fly apart.
Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are
of correct diameter for your selected wheel.
Proper wheel flanges support the wheel thus
reducing the possibility of wheel breakage.
The outside diameter and the thickness of
your wheel must be within the capacity rating
of your power tool. Incorrectly sized wheels
cannot be adequately guarded or controlled.
The arbour size of wheels and flanges must
properly fit the spindle of the power tool.
Wheels and flanges with arbour holes that do not
match the mounting hardware of the power tool
will run out of balance, vibrate excessively and
may cause loss of control.
Do not use damaged wheels. Before each use,
inspect the wheels for chips and cracks. If
power tool or wheel is dropped, inspect for
damage or install an undamaged wheel. After
inspecting and installing the wheel, position
yourself and bystanders away from the plane
of the rotating wheel and run the power tool at
maximum no load speed for one minute.
Damaged wheels will normally break apart during
this test time.
Wear
personal
protective
equipment.
Depending on application, use face shield,
safety goggles or safety glasses. As
appropriate, wear dust mask, hearing
protectors, gloves and shop apron capable of
stopping small abrasive or workpiece
fragments. The eye protection must be capable
of stopping flying debris generated by various
operations. The dust mask or respirator must be
capable of filtrating particles generated by your
operation. Prolonged exposure to high intensity
noise may cause hearing loss.
Keep bystanders a safe distance away from
work area. Anyone entering the work area must
wear personal protective equipment. Fragments
of workpiece or of a broken wheel may fly away and
cause injury beyond immediate area of operation.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, when performing an operation

where the wheel may contact hidden wiring or
its own cord. Wheel contacting a "live" wire may
make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live"
and shock the operator.
Position the cord clear of the spinning wheel.
If you lose control, the cord may be cut or
snagged and your hand or arm may be pulled into
the spinning wheel.
Never lay the power tool down until the wheel
has come to a complete stop. The spinning
wheel may grab the surface and pull the power
tool out of your control.
Do not run the power tool while carrying it at
your side. Accidental contact with the spinning
wheel could snag your clothing, pulling the wheel
into your body.
Regularly clean the power tool's air vents. The
motor's fan will draw the dust inside the housing
and excessive accumulation of powdered metal
may cause electrical hazards.
Do not operate the power tool near flammable
materials. Sparks could ignite these materials.
Never attempt to cut with the tool held upside
down in a vise. This can lead to serious
accidents, because it is extremely dangerous.
Some material contains chemicals which may
be toxic. Take caution to prevent dust
inhalation and skin contact. Follow material
supplier safety data.
Kickback and related warnings
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched or snagged
rotating wheel. Pinching or snagging causes rapid
stalling of the rotating wheel which in turn causes the
uncontrolled power tool to be forced in the direction
opposite of the wheel's rotation at the point of the
binding.
For example, if a wheel is snagged or pinched by the
workpiece, the edge of the wheel that is entering into
the pinch point can dig into the surface of the material
causing the wheel to climb out or kick out. The wheel
may either jump toward or away from the operator,
depending on direction of the wheel's movement at the
point of pinching. The wheels may also break under
these conditions.
Kickback is the result of power tool misuse and/or
incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be
avoided by taking proper precautions as given below.
1.
Maintain a firm grip on the power tool and
position your body and arm to allow you to
resist kickback forces. Always use auxiliary
handle, if provided, for maximum control over
kickback or torque reaction during start-up.
The operator can control torque reactions or
kickback forces, if proper precautions are taken.
4
2.
Never place your hand near the rotating wheel.
Wheel may kickback over your hand.
3.
Do not position your body in line with and
behind the rotating wheel. Kickback will propel
the tool in direction opposite to the wheel's
movement at the point of snagging.
4.
Use special care when working corners, sharp
edges etc. Avoid bouncing and snagging the
wheel. Corners, sharp edges or bouncing have a
tendency to snag the rotating wheel and cause
loss of control or kickback.
5.
Do not attach a saw chain woodcarving blade
or toothed saw blade. Such blades create
frequent kickback and loss of control.
6.
Do not "jam" the wheel or apply excessive
pressure. Do not attempt to make an
excessive depth of cut. Overstressing the wheel
increases the loading and susceptibility to twisting
or binding of the wheel in the cut and the
possibility of kickback or wheel breakage.
7.
When wheel is binding or when interrupting a
cut for any reason, switch off the power tool
and hold the power tool motionless until the
wheel comes to a complete stop. Never
attempt to remove the wheel from the cut
while the wheel is in motion otherwise
kickback may occur. Investigate and take
corrective action to eliminate the cause of wheel
binding.
8.
Do not restart the cutting operation in the
workpiece. Let the wheel reach full speed and
carefully reenter the cut. The wheel may bind,
walk up or kickback if the power tool is restarted
in the workpiece.
9.
Support panels or any oversized workpiece to
minimize the risk of wheel pinching and
kickback. Large workpieces tend to sag under
their own weight. Supports must be placed under
the workpiece near the line of cut and near the
edge of the workpiece on both sides of the wheel.
10. Use extra caution when making a "pocket cut"
into existing walls or other blind areas. The
protruding wheel may cut gas or water pipes,
electrical wiring or objects that can cause
kickback.
