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. Unmodiied plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
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.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk of electric shock.
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.
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.
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.
10. Use of power supply via a RCD with a rated
residual current of 30 mA or less is always
Personal safety
11. 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 inluence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
12. 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.
13. 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 inger on the switch or energising power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
14. 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.
15. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
16. 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.
17. 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.
WARNING: The vibration emission during actual
use of the power tool can differ from the declared
emission value depending on the ways in which the
tool is used.
WARNING: Be sure to identify safety measures
to protect the operator 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).

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, ire 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
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of lammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
Power tool use and care
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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.
21. 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.
22. 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.
23. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
24. 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.
25. Have your power tool serviced by a qualiied
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
26. Follow instruction for lubricating and changing accessories.
27. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
Be sure the bit is secured in place before
Under normal operation, the tool is designed
to produce vibration. The screws can come
loose easily, causing a breakdown or accident.
Check tightness of screws carefully before
In cold weather or when the tool has not been
used for a long time, let the tool warm up for
a while by operating it under no load. This
will loosen up the lubrication. Without proper
warm-up, hammering operation is dificult.
Always be sure you have a irm footing.
Be sure no one is below when using the tool in
high locations.
Hold the tool irmly with both hands.
Keep hands away from moving parts.
Do not leave the tool running. Operate the tool
only when hand-held.
Do not point the tool at any one in the area
when operating. The bit could ly out and
injure someone seriously.
Do not touch the bit or parts close to the bit
immediately after operation; they may be
extremely hot and could burn your skin.
Some material contains chemicals which may
be toxic. Take caution to prevent dust inhalation and skin contact. Follow material supplier
safety data.
WARNING: DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product (gained from repeated
use) replace strict adherence to safety
rules for the subject product. MISUSE or
failure to follow the safety rules stated in
this instruction manual may cause serious
personal injury.
Wear ear protectors. 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, 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.
Wear a hard hat (safety helmet), safety glasses
and/or face shield. Ordinary eye or sun glasses
are NOT safety glasses. It is also highly recommended that you wear a dust mask and thickly
padded gloves.
Use a dry cloth to wipe the dirt off the lens of
