person using only identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Additional power tool safety warnings
Warning! Additional safety warnings for planers
Hold the tool by the insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool 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 shock the operator.
u 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.
u Wait for the cutter to stop before setting the tool down.
An exposed cutter may engage the surface leading to
possible loss of control and serious injury.
u Keep the cutter sharp. Dull or damaged cutters may cause
the planer to swerve or stall under pressure. Always use
the appropriate type of cutter for the power tool.
u Do not touch the workpiece or the cutter immediately after
operating the tool. They can become very hot.
u Remove all nails and metal objects from the workpiece
before planning.
u Always hold the tool with both hands and by the handles
u Immediately disconnect the cable from the mains if it is
damaged or cut.
Warning! Contact with, or inhalation of dusts arising from
planing applications may endanger the health of the operator
and possible bystanders. Wear a dust mask specifically
designed for protection against dust and fumes and ensure
that persons within or entering the work area are also protected.
This tool is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
u The intended use is described in this instruction manual.
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 and/or damage to property.
Safety of others
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible
for their safety.
u Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
The declared vibration emission values stated in the technical
data and the declaration of conformity have been measured in
accordance with a standard test method provided by EN 60745
and may be used for comparing one tool with another.
The declared vibration emission value may also be used in
a preliminary assessment of exposure.
Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of
the power tool can differ from the declared value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may
increase above the level stated.
When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety
measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons regularly
using power tools in employment, an estimation of vibration
exposure should consider, the actual conditions of use and the
way the tool is used, including 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.
Labels on tool
The following pictograms are shown on the tool:
