ENGLISH
General
1. Keep work area clean
Cluttered areas and benches can cause accidents.
2. Consider work area environment
Do not expose the tool to rain. Do not use the
tool in damp or wet conditions. Keep the work
area well lit. Do not use the tool where there is
a risk of causing fire or explosion, e.g. in the
presence of flammable liquids and gases.
3. Keep children away
Do not allow children, visitors or animals to
come near the work area or to touch the tool
or mains cable.
4. Dress properly
Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery,
as these can be caught in moving parts.
Preferably wear rubber gloves and non-slip
footwear when working outdoors. Wear protective
hair covering to keep long hair out of the way.
5. Personal protection
Always use safety glasses. Use a face or dust
mask whenever the operations may produce
dust or flying particles. Wear ear protection
whenever the sound level seems uncomfortable.
6. Guard against electric shock
Prevent body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces (e.g. pipes, radiators, cookers and
refrigerators). Electric safety can be further
improved by using a high-sensitivity
(30 mA / 30 mS) residual current device (RCD).
7. Do not overreach
Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
8. Stay alert
Watch what you are doing. Use common sense.
Do not operate the tool when you are tired.
9. Secure workpiece
Use clamps or a vice to hold the workpiece.
It is safer and it frees both hands to operate
the tool.
10. Connect dust extraction equipment
If devices are provided for the connection of
dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure
that these are connected and properly used.
11. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches
Always check that adjusting keys and wrenches
are removed from the tool before operating
the tool.
12. Extension cables
Before use, inspect the extension cable and
replace if damaged. When using the tool
outdoors, only use extension cables intended
for outdoor use.
13. Use appropriate tool
The intended use is described in this instruction
manual. Do not force small tools or attachments
to do the job of a heavy-duty tool. The tool will
do the job better and safer at the rate for
which it was intended. Do not force the tool.
Warning! The use of any accessory or attachment
or performance of any operation with this tool
other than those recommended in this instruction
manual may present a risk of personal injury.
14. Check for damaged parts
Before use, carefully check the tool and mains
cable for damage. Check for misalignment and
seizure of moving parts, breakage of parts,
damage to guards and switches and any other
conditions that may affect its operation.
Ensure that the tool will operate properly and
perform its intended function. Do not use the
tool if any part is damaged or defective.
Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Have any damaged or defective
parts repaired or replaced by an authorised
repair agent. Never attempt any repairs yourself.
15. Unplug the tool
Unplug the tool when it is not in use, before
changing any parts of the tool, accessories or
attachments and before servicing.
16. Avoid unintentional starting
Do not carry the tool with a finger on the on/
off switch. Be sure that the tool is switched off
when plugging in.
17. Do not abuse cord
Never carry the tool by its cord or pull it to
disconnect from the socket. Keep the cord
away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
18. Store idle tools
When not in use, tools should be stored in
a dry, locked up or high place, out of reach of
children.
19. Maintain tools with care
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean for better
and safer performance. Follow the instructions
for maintenance and changing accessories.
7
ENGLISH
Keep handles and switches dry, clean and free
from oil and grease.
20. Repairs
This tool complies with relevant safety
requirements. Repairs should only be carried

parts; otherwise this may result in considerable
danger to the user.
Additional safety instructions for angle grinders
Wear safety glasses or goggles when
operating this tool.
Wear ear protection when operating this
tool.
Wear gloves when operating this tool.
Do not cut or grind light metal with a
magnesium content exceeding 80%,
since this type of metal is flammable.
◆
◆
◆
◆
◆
◆
Only use grinding and cutting discs and other
accessories recommended in this manual.
Make sure that the maximum speed of the
grinding or cutting disc exceeds the no-load
speed of the tool.
Do not cut workpieces requiring a maximum
depth of cut exceeding that of the cutting disc.
Never use the tool without the guard, except
for sanding.
Do not exert side pressure on the grinding or
cutting disc.
Use this tool only as a hand held tool.
Sanding
◆ Wear a dust mask whenever sanding.
◆ Thoroughly remove all dust after sanding.
◆ Take special care when sanding paint which is
possibly lead based or when sanding some
woods and metal which may produce toxic dust:
- Wear a dust mask specifically designed for
protection against lead paint dust and fumes
and ensure that persons within or entering
the work area are also protected.
8
- Do not let children or pregnant women enter
the work area.
- Do not eat, drink or smoke in the work area.

debris safely.
Additional safety instructions for Australia and
New Zealand
◆ This appliance is not intended for use by
young or infirm persons without supervision.
Children must be supervised to ensure they do
not play with the appliance.
◆ If the supply cord is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised
Black & Decker Service Centre in order to
avoid a hazard.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
The electric motor has been designed for one
voltage only. Always check that the power supply
corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate.
This tool is double insulated in accordance
with EN 50144; therefore no earth wire is
required.
Mains plug replacement (U.K. & Ireland only)
◆
◆
◆
◆
Should your mains plug need replacing and
you are competent to do this, proceed as
instructed below. If you are in doubt, contact
an authorised repair agent or a qualified
electrician.
Disconnect the plug from the supply and
remove the fuse from the plug.
Cut off the plug and dispose of it safely; a plug
with bared copper conductors is dangerous if
engaged in a live socket outlet.
Only fit 13 Amperes BS1363A approved plugs
fitted with the correctly rated fuse (1).
ENGLISH
◆
◆
◆
The cable wire colours, or a letter, will be
marked at the connection points of most good
quality plugs.
Attach the wires to their respective points in
the plug (see above). Brown is for Live (L) (2),
blue is for Neutral (N) (4).
Before replacing the top cover of the mains
plug ensure that the cable restraint (3) is
holding the outer sheath of the cable firmly
and that the leads are correctly fixed at the
terminal screws.
If the plug has a fuse cover, make sure that the
fuse cover is fitted. Do not use the plug if the
fuse cover is missing or damaged.
Never use a light socket.
Using an extension cable
Always use an approved extension cable suitable
for the power input of this tool (see technical
data). Before use, inspect the extension cable for
signs of damage, wear and ageing. Replace the
extension cable if damaged or defective.
When using a cable reel, always unwind the cable
completely. Use of an extension cable not suitable
for the power input of the tool or which is damaged
or defective may result in a risk of fire and electric
shock.

inner flange.
◆ Place the outer flange (14) onto the spindle.
When fitting a grinding disc, the raised centre
on the outer flange must face towards the disc
(A in fig. F). When fitting a cutting disc,
the raised centre on the outer flange must face
away from the disc (B in fig. F).
◆ Keep the spindle lock (3) depressed and
