Electrical Connections
Double Insulated Electrical Appliance
This appliance is of Double Insulation Construction. Because of its construction there is no
earth required and therefore there is no Earth connection.
Connect the mains lead to a standard 230V (50Hz) electrical supply through an approved
13 Amp BS1363 plug, or a suitably fused isolator switch.
The two wires in the mains lead should be wired up in accordance with the following colour
code:
IMPORTANT : The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Blue - Neutral
Brown - Live
As the colours of the flexible cord of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying terminals in your plug proceed as follows:
Connect BROWN coloured cord to plug terminal marked with a letter L or coloured RED
Connect BLUE coloured cord to plug terminal marked with a letter N or coloured Black
IMPORTANT: If this appliance is fitted with a plug which is moulded on to the electric
cable (i.e. non- re-wireable) please note:
1. The plug must be thrown away if it is cut from the electric cable. There is a danger of
electric shock if it is subsequently inserted into a socket outlet.
2. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
3. Should you wish to replace a detachable fuse carrier, ensure that the correct
replacement is used (as indicated by marking or colour code).
4. Replacement fuse covers can be obtained from your local dealer or most electrical
stockists.
5. The fuse in the plug must be replaced with one of the same rating (13 amps)
and this replacement must be ASTA approved to BS1362.
IMPORTANT: If in any doubt, do not attempt any electrical repair yourself. Consult a
qualified technician

Maintenance
IMPORTANT! Ensure that the grinder is disconnected from the power supply before
carrying out any maintenance.
Before Each Use
Always inspect the tool before use, and ensure it is in top condition.
Ensure all air vents are clear, use compressed air to clean the tool where possible.
(Always wear protective goggles when cleaning with compressed air).
Check the power cable to ensure it is sound and not damaged in any way.
Ensure the grinding wheel or cutting disc is perfectly sound and free from cracks or
damage in any way.
After Every 50 Hours of use
After every 50 hours of use the motors’ carbon brushes need to be checked and renewed
if necessary. You will need a cross head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver. The
brushes are changed as follows :
1 Unscrew the casing screw (A) and pull the casing
away from the body by sliding casing down the
power lead to give access to motor brushes.
A
2 Remove the brush assembly by unclipping with a
flat head screwdriver. (B)
3 If the brush is worn (less than 6mm remains, see (C))
then replace the brush assembly by clipping a new
one into place (D). Replace the casing and secure with
the casing screw taking care not to damage the lead.

VIBRATION EMISSIONS
HAND-ARM VIBRATION
Employers are advised to refer to the HSE publication “Guide for Employers”.
All hand held power tools vibrate to some extent, and this vibration is transmitted to the
operator via the handle, or hand used to steady the tool. Vibration from about 2 to 1500
herz is potentially damaging and is most hazardous in the range from about 5 to 20 herz.
Operators who are regularly exposed to vibration may suffer from Hand Arm Vibration
Syndrome (HAVS), which includes ‘dead hand’, ‘dead finger’, and ‘white finger’. These
are painful conditions and are widespread in industries where vibrating tools are used.
The health risk depends upon the vibration level and the length of time of exposure to
it……in effect, a daily vibration dose.
Tools are tested using specialised equipment, to approximate the vibration level generated
under normal, acceptable operating conditions for the tool in question. For example, a
grinder used at 45° on mild steel plate, or a sander on soft wood in a horizontal plane
etc.
These tests produce a value ‘a’, expressed in metres per second per second, which
represents the average vibration level of all tests taken, in three axes where necessary.
MODEL No:
CAG122
DESCRIPTION:
ANGLE GRINDER
Declared vibration emission value in accordance
with EN12096
Measured vibration emission value - a: 13.2 m/s2
Value determined according to EN28622-1
‘a’ values in excess of 2.5 m/s2 are considered hazardous when used for prolonged periods.
A tool with a vibration value of 2.8 m/s2 may be used for up to 8 hours (cumulative) per day,
whereas a tool with a value of 11.2 m/s2 may be used for ½ hour per day only.
- 12 -
The graph below shows the vibration value against the maximum time the respective tool
may be used, per day.
It should be noted that if a tool is
used under abnormal, or unusual
conditions, then the vibration
level could possibly increase
significantly. Users must always
take this into account and make
their own risk assessment, using
the graph above as a reference.
Some tools with a high vibration
value, such as impact wrenches,
are generally used for a few
seconds at a time, therefore the
cumulative time may only be in the order of a few minutes per day. Nevertheless, the
cumulative effect, particularly when added to that of other hand held power tools that
may be used, must always be taken into account when the total daily dose rate is
determined.
