Safety instructions
General power tool safety warnings
@
Warning! Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and
instructions listed below may result in electric
shock, fire 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.
1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
b. 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.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
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
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.
3. Personal safety
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.
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 repaired.
(Original instructions)
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 accidentally.
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.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools
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.
g. 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.
5. Battery tool use and care
a. 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.
b. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
c. 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.
d. 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.
6.Service
a. 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.

Additional power tool safety warnings
Warning! Additional safety warnings for
grinding, sanding, wire brushing, polishing or
abrasive cutting-off operations.
This power tool is intended to function as a grinder or
cut-off tool. Read all safety warnings instructions, illustrations and specification provided with this power
tool. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
u Operations such as sanding, polishing or wire brushing is not recommended to be performed with this
power tool. Operations for which the power tool was not
designed may create a hazard and cause personal injury.
u Do not use accessories which are not specifically
designed and recommended by the tool manufacturer.
Just because the accessory can be attached to your
power tool, it does not assure safe operation.
u The rated speed of the accessory must be at least
equal to the maximum speed marked on the power
tool. Accessories running faster than their rated speed
can break and fly apart
u The outside diameter and the thickness of your accessory must be within the capacity rating of your power
tool. Incorrectly sized accessories cannot be adequately
guarded or controlled.
u Threaded mounting of accessories must match the
grinder spindle thread. For accessories mounted by
flanges, the arbour hole of the accessory must fit the
locating diameter of the flange. Accessories that do not
match the mounting hardware of the power tool will run
out of balance, vibrate excessively and may cause loss of
control.
u Do not use a damaged accessory. Before each use
inspect the accessory such as abrasive wheels for
chips and cracks, backing pad for cracks, tear or
excess wear, wire brush for loose or cracked wires. If
power tool or accessory is dropped, inspect for damage or install an undamaged accessory. After inspecting and installing an accessory, position yourself
and bystanders away from the plane of the rotating
accessory and run the power tool at maximum noload speed for one minute. Damaged accessories will
normally break apart during this test time.
u Wear personal protective equipment. Depending on
application, use face shield, safety goggles or safety
glasses. As appropriate, wear dust mask, hearing
protectors, gloves and workshop apron capable of
stopping small abrasive or workpiece fragments.
The eye protection must be capable of stopping flying
debris generated by various operations. The dust mask or
u
5
ENGLISH
(Original instructions)
respirator must be capable of filtering particles generated
by your operation. Prolonged exposure to high intensity
noise may cause hearing loss.
u Keep bystanders a safe distance away from work area.
Anyone entering the work area must wear personal
protective equipment. Fragments of workpiece or of a
broken accessory may fly away and cause injury beyond
immediate area of operation.
u Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
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.
u Position the cord clear of the spinning accessory. If
you lose control, the cord may be cut or snagged and your
hand or arm may be pulled into the spinning accessory.
u Never lay the power tool down until the accessory
has come to a complete stop. The spinning accessory
may grab the surface and pull the power tool out of your
control.
u Do not run the power tool while carrying it at your
side. Accidental contact with the spinning accessory could
snag your clothing, pulling the accessory into your body.
u Regularly clean the power tool's air vents. The motor's
fan will draw the dust inside the housing and excessive
accumulation of powdered metal may cause electrical
hazards.
u Do not operate the power tool near flammable materials. Sparks could ignite these materials.
u Do not use accessories that require liquid coolants.
Using water or other liquid coolants may result in electrocution or shock.
Note: The above warning does not apply for power tools
specifically designed for use with a liquid system.
Kickback and related warnings
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched or snagged rotating wheel, backing pad, brush or any other accessory. Pinching or snagging causes rapid stalling of the rotating accessory
which in turn causes the uncontrolled power tool to be forced
in the direction opposite of the accessory's rotation at the point
of the binding.
For example, if an abrasive wheel is snagged or pinched by
the workpiece, the edge of the wheel that is entering into the
pinch point can dig into the surface of the material causing
the wheel to climb out or kick out. The wheel may either jump
toward or away from the operator, depending on direction
of the wheel's movement at the point of pinching. Abrasive
wheels may also break under these conditions.
6
Kickback is the result of power tool misuse and/or incorrect
operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by
taking proper precautions as given below.
Maintain a firm grip on the power tool and position
your body and arm to allow you to resist kickback
forces. Always use auxiliary handle, if provided, for
maximum control over kickback or torque reaction
during start-up. The operator can control torque reactions or kickback forces, if proper precautions are taken.
u Never place your hand near the rotating accessory.
Accessory may kickback over your hand.
u Do not position your body in the area where power
tool will move if kickback occurs. Kickback will propel
the tool in direction opposite to the wheel's movement at
the point of snagging.
u Use special care when working corners, sharp edges
etc. Avoid bouncing and snagging the accessory.
Corners, sharp edges or bouncing have a tendency to
snag the rotating accessory and cause loss of control or
kickback.
u Do not attach a saw chain woodcarving blade or
toothed saw blade. Such blades create frequent kickback
and loss of control.
u
Safety Warnings Specific for Grinding and Abrasive
Cutting-Off Operations:
Use only wheel types that are recommended for your
power tool and the specific guard designed for the
selected wheel. Wheels for which the power tool was not
designed cannot be adequately guarded and are unsafe.
u The grinding surface of centre depressed wheels
must be mounted below the plane of the guard lip. An
improperly mounted wheel that projects through the plane
of the guard lip cannot be adequately protected.
u The guard must be securely attached to the power
tool and positioned for maximum safety, so the least
amount of wheel is exposed towards the operator.
The guard helps to protect operator from broken wheel
fragments, accidental contact with wheel and sparks that
could ignite clothing.
u Wheels must be used only for recommended applications. For example: do not grind with the side of
cut-off wheel. Abrasive cut-off wheels are intended for
peripheral grinding, side forces applied to these wheels
may cause them to shatter.
u Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are of
correct size and shape for your selected wheel. Proper
wheel flanges support the wheel thus reducing the posibility of wheel breakage. Flanges for cut-off wheels may be
different from grinding wheel flanges.
u
u
Do not use worn down wheels from larger power
tools. Wheel intended for larger power tool is not suitable
for the higher speed of a smaller tool and may burst.
@
(Original instructions)
Additional safety warnings specific for abrasive
cutting-off operations
Do not "jam" the cut-off wheel or apply excessive
pressure. Do not attempt to make an excessive depth
of cut. Over stressing the wheel increases the loading
and susceptibility to twisting or binding of the wheel in the
cut and the possibility of kickback or wheel breakage.
u Do not position your body in line with and behind the
rotating wheel. When the wheel, at the point of operation,
is moving away from your body, the possible kickback may
propel the spinning wheel and the power tool directly at
you.
u When wheel is binding or when interrupting a cut for
any reason, switch off the power tool and hold the
power tool motionless until the wheel comes to a
complete stop. Never attempt to remove the cut-off
wheel from the cut while the wheel is in motion
otherwise kickback may occur. Investigate and take
corrective action to eliminate the cause of wheel binding.
u Do not restart the cutting operation in the workpiece.
Let the wheel reach full speed and carefully re-enter
the cut. The wheel may bind, walk up or kickback if the
power tool is restarted in the workpiece.
u Support panels or any oversized workpiece to minimise the risk of wheel pinching and kickback. Large
workpieces tend to sag under their own weight. Supports
must be placed under the workpiece near the line of cut
and near the edge of the workpiece on both sides of the
wheel.
u Use extra caution when making a "pocket cut" into existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding wheel
may cut gas or water pipes, electrical wiring or objects that
can cause kickback.
u
Safety warnings specific for sanding operation
u
Do not use excessively oversized sanding disc paper.
Follow manufacturers recommendations, when selecting sanding paper. Larger sanding paper extending
beyond the sanding pad presents a laceration hazard and
may cause snagging, tearing of the disc or kickback.
Safety warnings specific for polishing operation
u
Do not allow any loose portion of the polishing bonnet
or its attachment strings to spin freely. Tuck away or
trim any loose attachment strings. Loose and spinning
attachment strings can entangle your fingers or snag on
the workpiece.
ENGLISH
Warning! Contact with or inhalation of dusts
arising from sanding 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.
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.
u
Residual risks.
Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which
may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These
risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc.
Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks can not be avoided. These include:
u Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts.
u Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or accessories.
u Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using
any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take regular
breaks.
u Impairment of hearing.

Hints for optimum use
u
Firmly hold the tool with one hand around the side handle
and the other hand around the main handle.
Surface grinding with grinding wheels
Allow the tool to reach full speed before touching the tool
to the work surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to the work surface, allowing the
tool to operate at high speed. Grinding rate is greatest
when the tool operates at high speed.
u Maintain a 20˚ to 30˚ angle between the tool and work
surface.
u Continuously move the tool in a forward and back motion
to avoid creating gouges in the work surface.
u Remove the tool from work surface before turning tool off.
Allow the tool to stop rotating before laying it down.
u
Edge grinding with grinding wheels
Wheels used for cutting and edge grinding may break or
kick back if they bend or twist while the tool is being used
to do cut-off work or deep grinding. To reduce the risk of
serious injury, limit the use of these wheels with a standard
Type 27 guard to shallow cutting and notching (less than 1/2
inch (13mm) in depth). The open side of the guard must be
positioned away from the operator. For deeper cutting with
(Original instructions)
a Type 1 cut-off wheel, use a closed Type 1 guard. See the
Grinding and cutting chart which can be found at the back of
language section.
u Allow the tool to reach full speed before touching the tool
to the work surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to the work surface, allowing the
tool to operate at high speed. Grinding rate is greatest
when the tool operates at high speed.
u Position yourself so that the open-underside of the wheel
is facing away from you.
u Once a cut is begun and a notch is established in the
workpiece, do not change the angle of the cut. Changing
the angle will cause the wheel to bend and may cause
wheel breakage. Edge grinding wheels are not designed
to withstand side pressures caused by bending.
u Remove the tool from the work surface before turning
the tool off. Allow the tool to stop rotating before laying it
down.
Do not use edge grinding/cutting wheels for surface grinding
applications because these wheels are not designed for side
pressures encountered with surface grinding. Wheel breakage
and injury may result.
Surface finishing with sanding flap discs
Allow the tool to reach full speed before touching the tool
to the work surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to work surface, allowing the tool
to operate at high speed. Sanding rate is greatest when
the tool operates at high speed.
u Maintain a 5˚ to 10˚ angle between the tool and work
surface.
u Continuously move the tool in a forward and back motion
to avoid creating gouges in the work surface.
u Remove the tool from work surface before turning tool off.
Allow the tool to stop rotating before laying it down.
u
Using sanding backing pads
Choose the proper grit sanding discs for your application.
Sanding discs are available in various grits. Coarse grits yield
faster material removal rates and a rougher finish.
Finer grits yield slower material removal and a smoother
finish.
Begin with coarse grit discs for fast, rough material removal.
Move to a medium grit paper and finish with a fine grit disc for
optimal finish.
u Coarse 16 - 30 grit
u Medium 36 - 80 grit
u Fine Finishing 100 - 120 grit
u Very Fine Finishing 150 - 180 grit
ENGLISH
Allow the tool to reach full speed before touching tool to
the work surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to work surface, allowing the tool
to operate at high speed. Sanding rate is greatest when
the tool operates at high speed.
u Maintain a 5˚ to 15˚ angle between the tool and work
surface. The sanding disc should contact approximately
one inch (25mm) of work surface.
u Move the tool constantly in a straight line to prevent burning and swirling of work surface. Allowing the tool to rest
on the work surface without moving, or moving the tool in
a circular motion causes burning and swirling marks on
the work surface.
u Remove the tool from work surface before turning tool off.
Allow the tool to stop rotating before laying it down.
u
Using wire wheels
Wire wheels can be used for removing rust, scale and paint,
and for smoothing irregular surfaces.
Note: The same precautions should be taken when wire
brushng paint as when sanding paint.
u Allow the tool to reach full speed before touching the tool
to the work surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to work surface, allowing the tool
to operate at high speed. Material removal rate is greatest
when the tool operates at high speed.
u Maintain a 5˚ to 10˚ angle between the tool and work
surface for wire cup brushes.
u Maintain contact between the edge of the wheel and the
work surface with wire wheels.
u Continuously move the tool in a forward and back motion
to avoid creating gouges in the work surface. Allowing the
tool to rest on the work surface without moving, or moving
the tool in a circular motion causes burning and swirling
marks on the work surface.
u Remove the tool from the work surface before turning
the tool off. Allow the tool to stop rotating before setting it
down.
Use extra care when working over an edge, as a sudden
sharp movement of grinder may be experienced.
Precautions to take when sanding
Sanding of lead based paint is NOT RECOMMENDED
due to the difficulty of controlling the contaminated dust.
The greatest danger of lead poisoning is to children and
pregnant women.
u Since it is difficult to identify whether or not a paint contains lead without a chemical analysis, we recommend the
following precautions when sanding any paint:
u

ENGLISH
(Original instructions)
Personal safety
u No children or pregnant women should enter the work
area where the paint sanding is being done until all clean
up is completed.
u A dust mask or respirator should be worn by all persons
entering the work area. The filter should be replaced daily
or whenever the wearer has difficulty breathing.
Note: Only those dust masks suitable for working with lead
paint dust and fumes should be used. Ordinary painting masks
do not offer this protection. See your local hardware dealer for
the proper respiratory protection.
u NO EATING, DRINKING or SMOKING should be done
in the work area to prevent ingesting contaminated paint
particles. Workers should wash and clean up BEFORE
eating, drinking or smoking. Articles of food, drink, or
smoking should not be left in the work area where dust
would settle on them.
Environmental safety
u Paint should be removed in such a manner as to minimize
the amount of dust generated.
u Areas where paint removal is occurring should be sealed
with plastic sheeting of 4 mils thickness.
u Sanding should be done in a manner to reduce tracking of
paint dust outside the work area.
Cleaning and disposal
u All surfaces in the work area should be vacuumed and
thoroughly cleaned daily for the duration of the sanding
project. Vacuum filter bags should be changed frequently.
u Plastic drop cloths should be gatheredup and disposed
of along with any dust chips or other removal debris.
They should be placed in sealed refuse receptacles and
disposed of through regular trash pick-up procedures.
During clean up, children and pregnant women should be
kept away from the immediate work area.
u All toys, washable furniture and utensils used by children
should be washed thoroughly before being used again.
Using cutting wheels
Do not use edge grinding/cutting wheels for surface grinding
applications because these wheels are not designed for side
pressures encountered with surface grinding. Wheel breakage
and injury may result.
u Allow tool to reach full speed before touching tool to work
surface.
u Apply minimum pressure to work surface, allowing tool to
operate at high speed. Cutting rate is greatest when the
tool operates at high speed.
12
Once a cut is begun and a notch is established in the
workpiece, do not change the angle of the cut. Changing
the angle will cause the wheel to bend and may cause
wheel breakage.
u Remove the tool from work surface before turning tool off.
Allow the tool to stop rotating before setting it down.
