POWER SUPPLY
CONNECTING YOUR MACHINE TO THE POWER SUPPLY: (230V)
To eliminate the possibility of an electric shock your machine has been fitted with a BS
approved, non rewireable moulded plug and cable which incorporates a fuse, the value
of which is indicated on the pin face of the plug. Should the fuse need to be replaced an
approved BS1362 fuse must be used of the same rating, marked thus
.
The fuse cover is detachable, never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a
replacement fuse is required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin
face of the plug (i.e. red). Fuse covers are available from your Draper Tools stockist.
If the fitted plug is not suitable, it should be cut off and destroyed. *The end of the cable
should now be suitably prepared and the correct type of plug fitted. See below.
*WARNING:
A plug with bare flexible wires exposed is hazardous if engaged in a live power socket
outlet.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE IS DOUBLE INSULATED.
Blue – Neutral, Brown – Live.
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘N’ or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘L’ or coloured red or brown.

wristwatches) to catch in moving parts. NONSLIP footwear is
recommended.Wear protective hair covering to contain
long hair. Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
7. USE SAFETY GOGGLES (Head Protection)
Wear CE approved safety goggles at all times. Normal
spectacles only have impact resistant lenses, they are NOT
safety glasses. Also, use face or dust mask if application is
dusty and ear protectors (plugs or muffs) during extended
periods of operation.
8. NOISE LEVELS
Some types of machines may have high noise levels when
working. In such cases ear protection must be worn.
9. VIBRATION LEVELS
Hand held power tools produce different vibration levels.
You should always refer to the specifications and relevant
Health and Safety guide.
10. DUST EXTRACTION
If your tool is fitted with a dust extraction fitting, always
ensure that it is connected and being used with a dust
extractor.Vacuum cleaners can be used if suitable for the
material being extracted.
11. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK
When working with power tools, avoid contact with any
earthed items (e.g. pipes, radiators, hobs and refrigerators,
etc.). If you are using a power tool in extreme conditions
(e.g. high humidity or generating metal dust), always use an
RCD (residual current device) at the power socket.
12. STAY ALERT
Always watch what you are doing and use common sense.
Do not operate a power tool when you are tired or under the
influence of alcohol or drugs.
13. WHEN WORKING OUT OF DOORS
Only use extension leads designed for that purpose.
14. ACCESS TO MAINS SOCKET
If a stationary machine is fitted with a moulded plug and
cable, the machine should not be positioned so that access
to the mains socket is restricted.
15. DISCONNECT POWER TO THE TOOL
When not in use, before servicing and when changing
accessories such as cutters, etc.
16. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING
Make sure the switch is in the OFF position before plugging
the machine into the power supply.
17. NEVER LEAVE MACHINE RUNNING UNATTENDED
Turn power off. Do not leave machine until it comes to a
complete stop.
18. DO NOT ABUSE THE CORD
Never carry the tool by the power cable or pull it from the
socket. Keep the power cable away from heat, oil and sharp
edges.
19. NEVER STAND ON TOOL
Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if the
cutting tool is accidentally contacted. Do not store materials
above or near the tool, so that it is necessary to stand on the
tool to reach them.
20. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS
Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is
damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it
will operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, free running of moving
parts, breakage of parts, mounting and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is
damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an
authorized service centre unless otherwise indicated in this
instruction manual. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service facility. Do not use the tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off.
21. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE

Always make sure there is no danger of hitting any hidden
power cables, water or gas pipes in the wall.
31. HAVE YOUR TOOL REPAIRED BY A QUALIFIED PERSON
This electric tool is in accordance with the relevant safety
requirements. Repairs should only be carried out by
qualified persons using original spare parts, otherwise this
may result in considerable danger to the user.

MAINTENANCE AND PARTS
REPLACEMENT
Regular inspection and cleaning reduces the necessity for maintenance operations and will keep
your tool in good working condition. The tool bearings are life-long lubricated. The motor must be
correctly ventilated during tool operation. For this reason avoid blocking the air inlets with hands.
After use disconnect the tool from the power supply and clean carefully, use compressed air
through the ventilation slots.
DISPOSAL
At the end of the machine’s working life, or when it can no longer be repaired, ensure that it is
disposed of according to the standard regulations of the country in which it is being used, and that
the disposal operation is carried out by specialized personnel following authorized guidelines. In
all circumstances:
– Do not abandon in the environment;
– Do not dispose of together with solid urban waste products;
– Contact the special recycling centres.
WARNING – Disconnect the plug from the power supply socket before replacing any parts.
BRUSHES
The brushes must be replaced after approximately 150-200 working hours, or if they are less than
5-6mm in length.
WARNING – For correct tool operation always change the brushes in pairs, not separately.
The use of original Draper Tool spare parts is recommended. After having fitted new
brushes run the motor without load for at least five minutes for the brushes to bed in.
IMPORTANT – This operation should only be performed by an authorized person.
REPLACING THE POWER SUPPLY CABLE
Check that the power supply cable is in good condition, if not have it replaced by an authorized
person.
