General Power Tool Safety Warnings
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the
warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
Work area safety
f Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
f 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.
f Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
f Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
f Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
f Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
f 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 and moving parts. Damaged
or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
f 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.
f 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.

Personal safety
f 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.
f 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.
f 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.
f 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.
f Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f 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.
f 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
dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
f 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.
f 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.
f 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.
f 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.
f 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.
f Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
f 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
Battery tool use and care
f Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery
2 609 140 750 | (1.8.11)

f Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
f When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper
clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
f Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If
contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally
seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
f 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.
Safety Warnings for Drills and Screwdriver
f Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation
where the cutting accessory or fastener may contact hidden wiring. Cutting accessory and fasteners contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool
“live” and could give the operator an electric shock.
f Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool. Loss of control can cause personal injury.
f Use appropriate detectors to determine if utility lines are hidden in the work area or
call the local utility company for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage.
f Switch off the power tool immediately when the tool insert jams. Be prepared for
high reaction torque that can cause kickback. The tool insert jams when:
— the power tool is subject to overload or
— it becomes wedged in the workpiece.
f Hold the machine with a firm grip. High reaction torque can briefly occur while driving
in and loosening screws.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Always wait until the machine has come to a complete stop before placing it down.
The tool insert can jam and lead to loss of control over the power tool.
f Do not open the battery. Danger of short-circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat, e. g., against continuous intense sunlight,
fire, water, and moisture. Danger of explosion.
f In case of damage and improper use of the battery, vapours may be emitted. Provide
for fresh air and seek medical help in case of complaints. The vapours can irritate the
respiratory system.
f Use the battery only in conjunction with your Bosch power tool. This measure alone
protects the battery against dangerous overload.

f Use only original Bosch batteries with the voltage listed on the nameplate of your
power tool. When using other batteries, e. g. imitations, reconditioned batteries or other
brands, there is danger of injury as well as property damage through exploding batteries.
Additional Safety and Working Instructions
f Dusts from materials such as lead-containing coatings, some wood types, minerals
and metal can be harmful to one’s health and cause allergic reactions, lead to respiratory infections and/or cancer. Materials containing asbestos may only be worked by
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the materials to be worked.
f Before any work on the machine (e. g., maintenance, tool change, etc.) as well as
during transport and storage, set the rotational direction switch to the centre position. Unintentional actuation of the On/Off switch can lead to injuries.
f The battery is supplied partially charged. To ensure full battery capacity, completely charge the battery in the battery charger before using for the first time.
f Read the operating instructions of the battery charger.
f Apply the power tool to the screw only when it is switched off. Rotating tool inserts
can slip off.
f Hold the machine with a firm grip. High reaction torque can briefly occur when switching gears. A noise can appear when switching gears.

Noise/Vibration Information
The measured values of the machine are listed in the table on page 229.
Noise and vibrational values (vector sum of three directions) determined according to
EN 60745.
The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with
another. It may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main applications of the tool. However
if the tool is used for different applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained,
the vibration emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level over the
total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times
when the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the total working period.
