The sound intensity level for the operator may exceed
85dB(A) and sound protection measures are necessary.
The values given are valid for nominal voltages of 230V.
For lower voltage and models for specific countries
these values can vary.
The declared vibration total value has been measured
in accordance with a standard test method and may be
used for comparing one tool with another.
The declared vibration total value may also be used in
a preliminary assessment of exposure. The vibration
emission during actual use of the power tool can differ
from the declared total value depending on the ways
in which the tool is used. Safety measures to protect
the operator should be identified that are based on an
estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use
(taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such
as the times when the tool is switched off and when it
is running idle in addition to the trigger time).
The following symbols are important for reading and
understanding the operating instructions. Please take
note of the symbols and their meaning. The correct
interpretation of the symbols will help you to use the
machine in a better and safer manner.
WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury during
operation, always read the instructions.
Always wear hearing protection. The effects of
noise can cause hearing loss.
Always wear safety glasses. When working with
electric power tools, sparks, splinters, chips and dust
particles may be generated and these can cause loss
of sight.

This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
b.(Type Y attachment) If the supply cord is damaged,
it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service
agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid
a hazard.
WARNING Read all safety warnings designated by the
symbol and all instructions.
• Wear ear protectors when impact drilling. Exposure
to noise can cause hearing loss.
• Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool.
Loss of control can cause personal injury.
• Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces,
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. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, 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 energising 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
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery 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 dust collection
can reduce dust-related hazards.
when performing an operation where the cutting
accessory may contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Cutting accessory contacting a “live” wire may
make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live”
and could give the operator an electric shock.
If operation is dusty, also wear a dust mask.
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 or may cause an
electric shock.
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.
When working with the machine, always hold it firmly
with both hands and provide for a secure stance. The
power tool is guided more secure with both hands.
Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with
clamping devices or in a vice is held more secure

TID-600-1-EU-EN REV 11
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 residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
a.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.
b.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.
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.
4.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
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
d.Store idle power tools out of the reach of children

tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
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.
