General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
Important SAFETY
Information
WARNING Read all safety
warnings and 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 batteryoperated (cordless) power tool.
In this manual, on the labeling,
and all other information provided with this product:
This is the safety alert
symbol. It is used to alert
you to potential personal
injury hazards. Obey all
safety messages that
follow this symbol to avoid
possible injury or death.
1.

Work area safety
c.Keep children and bystanders
away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
2.
Electrical safety
a.Power tool plugs must match the
outlet. Never modify the plug in
any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with grounded power tools.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
Page 2
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b.Avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
c.Do not expose power tools to rain
or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d.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.
e.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
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI) protected supply. Use of
a GFCI reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3.
Personal safety
a.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.
b.Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection.

SKU 99675
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal
injuries.
c.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 energizing power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
d.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.
e.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 jewelry. Keep your
hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g.If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use
of these devices can reduce dustrelated hazards.
h.Only use safety equipment that
has been approved by an appropriate standards agency. Unapproved
safety equipment may not provide
adequate protection. Eye protection
must be ANSI-approved and breathing protection must be NIOSH-approved for the specific hazards in the
work area.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.

Power tool use and care
a.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.
b.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.
c.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.
d.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.
e.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.
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.
5.
Service
a.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.
6.
Battery tool use and care
a.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 pack.
b.Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs.
Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
c.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.
d.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.
g.Use the power tool, accessories
and tool bits etc. in accordance
with these instructions, taking into

Angle Grinder Operation Safety
Warnings
1.
Do not use accessories which are
not specifically designed and recommended by the tool manufacturer.
Just because the accessory can be
attached to your power tool, it does
not assure safe operation.
2.
The rated speed of the accessory
must be at least equal to the maximum speed marked on the power
tool. Accessories running faster than
their rated speed can break and fly
apart.
3.
The outside diameter and the thickness of your accessory must be
within the capacity rating of your
power tool. Incorrectly sized accessories cannot be adequately guarded
or controlled.
4.
The arbor size of wheels, flanges,
backing pads or any other accessory
must properly fit the spindle of the
power tool. Accessories with arbor
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.
5.
6.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only, when performing
an operation where the cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring.
Cutting accessory contacting a ″live″
wire may make exposed metal parts
of the power tool ″live″ and shock the
operator.
Never lay the power tool down until
the accessory has come to a complete stop. The spinning accessory
may grab the surface and pull the
power tool out of your control.
SKU 99675
7.
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.
8.
The battery charger gets
hot during use. The
charger’s heat can build
up to unsafe levels and
create a fire hazard if it does not
receive adequate ventilation, due to
an electrical fault, or if it is used in a
hot environment.
Do not place the charger on a flammable surface. Do not obstruct any
vents on the charger. Especially
avoid placing the charger on carpets and rugs; they are not only
flammable, but they also obstruct
vents under the charger.
Place the charger on a stable, solid,
nonflammable surface (such as a
stable metal workbench or concrete
floor) at least 1 foot away from all
flammable objects, such as drapes or
walls. Keep a fire extinguisher and a
smoke detector in the area. Frequently monitor the charger and
battery during use.
9.
Maintain labels and nameplates on
the tool. These carry important safety
information. If unreadable or missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools for a
replacement.
10. Avoid unintentional starting. Prepare
to begin work before turning on the
tool.
11. Do not lay the tool down until it has
come to a complete stop. Moving
parts can grab the surface and pull
the tool out of your control.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
Page 5
12. Do not leave the tool unattended
when it is plugged into an electrical
outlet. Turn off the tool, and unplug it
from its electrical outlet before leaving.
13. This product is not a toy. Keep it out
of reach of children.
14. People with pacemakers should
consult their physician(s) before use.
Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to heart pacemaker could cause
pacemaker interference or pacemaker failure. In addition, people with
pacemakers should:
• Avoid operating alone.
• Do not use with power switch locked
on.
• Properly maintain and inspect to
avoid electrical shock.
• Any power cord must be properly
grounded. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) should also be implemented – it prevents sustained electrical shock.
15. Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and
other construction activities, contains
chemicals known [to the State of California] to cause cancer, birth defects
or other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement or other masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do
this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals: work in
a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as
those dust masks that are specially
SKU 99675
designed to filter out microscopic
particles. (California Health & Safety
Code § 25249.5, et seq.)
16. WARNING: Handling the cord on
this product will expose you to lead,
a chemical known to the State of
California to cause cancer, and birth
defects or other reproductive harm.
Wash hands after handling. (California Health & Safety Code § 25249.5,
et seq.)
17. The warnings, precautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction
manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur.
It must be understood by the operator
that common sense and caution are
factors which cannot be built into this
product, but must be supplied by the
operator.
Vibration Safety
