Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
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.
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.
If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply.
Use of a ground fault circuit interrupter
(GFCI) reduces the risk of electric shock.
Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Personal safety
Work area safety
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.
Electrical safety
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.
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.
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.
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.
Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.

POWER TOOL SAFETY
PERSONAL SAFETY – cont’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.
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.
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
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.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
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.
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 situation.
Power tool use and care
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.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact
with a "live" wire will make exposed metal
parts of the tool "live" and shock the
operator.
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.
Use clamps or another practical way to
secure and support the workpiece to a
stable platform. Holding the work by hand
or against your body leaves it unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
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.
6
POWER TOOL SAFETY
Battery tool use and care
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.
Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any
other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
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.
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.
Service
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.

applications and limitations, as well as
the specific potential hazards related to
this tool. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
Never place your hands near or below the
cutting surface. Clamping the material and
guiding the tool with both hands is much
safer.
Never lay the workpiece on hard surfaces
like concrete, stone, etc. The protruding
blade may cause the tool to jump.
Always wear safety goggles, hearing
protection and a dust mask. Use only in
well-ventilated areas. Using personal
safety devices and working in a safe
environment reduces the risk of injury.
Always wear eye protection.
Any power tool can throw
foreign objects into your eyes
and cause permanent eye
damage. ALWAYS wear safety goggles
(not glasses) that comply with ANSI safety
standard Z87.1. Everyday glasses have
only impact resistant lenses. They ARE
NOT safety glasses.
! DANGER: Always remove the
battery when changing the blade.
Use only 4" (10.2 cm) universal
reciprocating saw blades. Never use a
broken blade, as it will not be securely held
in the tool.
! WARNING: Glasses or goggles
not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1
could cause serious injury when they
break.
After changing a blade, make sure the
blade is securely held in the blade holder.
Loose blades will be violently thrown.
Always use hearing protection when
operating the impact driver.
After adjusting the pivoting shoe, make
sure the adjusting screw is fully tightened.
An improperly tightened pivoting shoe may
work loose and cause the blade to break.
Always hold the tool with two hands.
Attempting to control the tool with only one
hand is dangerous. It could result in loss of
control and serious injury.
Never touch the blade during or
immediately after use. After use, the blade
is too hot to be touched by bare hands.
Always make sure the work surface is free
of nails and other foreign objects. Cutting
into a nail can cause the blade and the tool
to jump and damage the blade.
Never use dull or damaged blades. Sharp
blades must be handled with care.
Damaged blades can snap during use.
Dull blades require more force to cut the
workpiece, possibly causing the blade to
break.
Never hold the workpiece in one hand and
the tool in the other hand when sawing.
