commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
Use clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.

WARNING:
Do not attempt to modify this tool or
create accessories not recommended for use with
this tool. Any such alteration or modification is
misuse and could result in a hazardous condition
leading to possible serious personal injury.
•
Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above or below normal room
temperature will shorten battery life.
•
Never store batteries in a discharged condition.
Recharge them immediately after they are
discharged.
WARNING:

gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating oils,
etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They contain
chemicals that can damage, weaken or destroy

BATTERIES
The battery pack for your hand vac is equipped with
nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service
from each charging will depend on the type of work you
are doing.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to provide
maximum trouble free life. However, like all batteries, they
will eventually wear out. Do not disassemble battery pack
and attempt to replace the batteries. Handling of these
batteries, especially when wearing rings and jewelry,
could result in a serious burn.
All batteries gradually lose their charge. The higher
the temperature the quicker they lose their charge. If
you store your tool for long periods of time without
using it, recharge the batteries every month or two.
This practice will prolong battery life.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
To preserve natural resources, please
recycle or dispose of batteries properly.
BATTERY PACK REMOVAL
FOR RECYCLING
This product contains nickel-cadmium
batteries. Local, state or federal laws
may prohibit disposal of nickel-cadmium
batteries in ordinary trash.
,_
Consult your local waste authority for information
regarding available recycling and/or disposal options.
AND PREPARATION
WARNING:
Upon removal, cover the battery pack's
terminals with heavy duty adhesive tape. Do not
attempt to destroy or disassemble battery pack or
remove any of its components. Nickel-cadmium
batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly.
Also, never touch both terminals with metal objects
and/or body parts as short circuit may result. Keep
away from children. Failure to comply with these
warnings could result in fire and/or serious injury.
