GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS

Read all safety warnings and instructions. Failure to heed warnings and follow instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.

Keep safety warnings and instructions for future reference.

The term “power tool” in the safety warnings refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery- operated (cordless) power tool.

2.0 BEFORE USE

Remove any packing material and loose parts from unit.

Check the accessories before use. It should be fit with the machine and your purpose.

If the machine is new, the battery must first be charged.

Attention! After long time storage, the battery capacity will be reduce.

A new battery or one which has not been used for an extended period achieves full performance only after charging and discharging cycles. A substantial drop in operating period per charge indicates that the battery is worn out and must be replaced.

NORDIC

2.1 WORKING AREA

• Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.

• 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.

• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.

Distractions can cause you to lose control.

2.2 ELECTRICAL SAFETY

• Always check that the power supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate.

• Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use adapter plugs with earthed power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of an electric shock.

• Avoid body contact with earthed surfaces such as pipes, radiators, kitchen ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of an electric shock if your body is earthed.

• Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. If water gets inside a power tool, it will increase the risk of an electric shock.

• Do not damage the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of an electric shock.

• When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cable suitable for outdoor use. Using a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of an electric shock.

• If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a power supply protected by a residual current device (RCD). Using an RCD reduces the risk of an electric shock.

2.3 PERSONAL SAFETY

• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool when you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention when operating a power tool may result in serious personal injury.

• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Using safety equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, a hard hat, or hearing protection whenever it is needed will reduce the risk of personal injury.

• Avoid accidental starts. Ensure the switch is in the off position before inserting the plug. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools when the switch is in the on position makes accidents more likely.

• Remove any adjusting keys or spanners before turning on the power tool. A spanner or key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.

• Do not reach out too far. Keep your feet firmly on the ground at all times. This will enable you retain control over the power tool in unexpected situations.

• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from the power

3

NORDIC tool. Loose clothes, jewelery or long hair can become entangled in the moving parts..

• If there are devices for connecting dust extraction and collection facilities, please ensure that they are attached and used correctly. Using such devices can reduce dust-related hazards.

2.4 POWER TOOL USE AND CARE

• Do not expect the power tool to do more than it can. Use the correct power tool for what you want to do. A power tool will achieve better results and be safer if used in the context for which it was designed.

• Do not use the power tool if the switch cannot turn it on and off. A power tool with a broken switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

• Disconnect the plug from the power source before making adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.

• Store power tools, when not in use, out of the reach of children and do not allow people who are not familiar with the power tool or these instructions to operate it. Power tools are potentially dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

• Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or jammed moving parts, breakages or any other feature that might affect the operation of the power tool. If it is damaged, the power tool must be repaired. Many accidents are caused by using poorly maintained power tools.

• Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to jam and are easier to control.

• Use the power tool, accessories and cutting tools, etc., in accordance with these instructions and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool, taking into account the working conditions and the work which needs to be done. Using a power tool in ways for which it was not intended can lead to potentially hazardous situations.

2.5 SERVICE

Your power tool should be serviced by a qualified specialist using only standard spare parts. This will ensure that it meets the required safety standards.

a) Use only the manufacturer’s recommended replacement parts and accessories.

b) Inspect and maintain the machine regularly. Have the machine repaired only by an authorized repairer.

c) When not in use, store the machine out of the reach of children.

SPECIAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHAINSAW

• Keep all parts of the body away from the saw chain when the chain saw is operating. Before you start the chain saw, make sure the saw chain is not contacting anything. A moment of inattention while operating chain saws may cause entanglement of your clothing or body with the saw chain.

• Always hold the chain saw with your right hand on the rear handle and your left hand on the front handle. Holding the chain saw with a reversed hand configuration increases the risk of personal injury and should never be done.

• Hold the tool by insulated gripping surfaces only, because the saw chain may contact hidden wiring or its own cord.

Saw chains contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and could give the operator an

4

NORDIC electric shock.

• Wear safety glasses and hearing protection. Further protective equipment for head, hands, legs and feet is recommended. Adequate protective clothing will reduce personal injury by flying debris or accidental contact with the saw chain.

• Do not operate a chain saw in a tree. Operation of a chain saw while up in a tree may result in personal injury.

• Always keep proper footing and operate the chain saw only when standing on fixed, secure and level surface.

Slippery or unstable surfaces such as ladders may cause a loss of balance or control of the chain saw.

• When cutting a limb that is under tension be alert for spring back. When the tension in the wood fibers is released the spring loaded limb may strike the operator and/or throw the chain saw out of control.

• Use extreme caution when cutting brush and saplings. The slender material may catch the saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull you off balance.

• Carry the chain saw by the front handle with the chain saw switched off and away from your body. When transporting or storing the chain saw always fit the guide bar cover. Proper handling of the chain saw will reduce the likelihood of accidental contact with the moving saw chain.

• Follow instructions for lubricating, chain tensioning and changing accessories. Improperly tensioned or lubricated chain may either break or increase the chance for kickback.

• Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease. Greasy, oily handles are slippery causing loss of control.

• Cut wood only. Do not use chain saw for purposes not intended. For example: do not use chain saw for cutting plastic, masonry or non-wood building materials. Use of the chain saw for operations different than intended could result in a hazardous situation.

KICKBACK CAUSES AND RELATED WARNINGS

Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an object, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut.

Tip contact in some cases may cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up and back towards the operator.

Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back towards the operator.

Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious personal injury. Do not rely exclusively upon the safety devices built into your saw. As a chain saw user, you should take several steps to keep your cutting jobs free from accident or injury.

Kickback is the result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking proper precautions as given below:

• Maintain a firm grip, with thumbs and fingers encircling the chain saw handles, with both hands on the saw and position your body and arm to allow you to resist kickback forces. Kickback forces can be controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are taken. Do not let go of the chain saw.

5

NORDIC

• Do not overreach and do not cut above shoulder height. This helps prevent unintended tip contact and enables better control of the chain saw in unexpected situations.

• Only use replacement bars and chains specified by the manufacturer. Incorrect replacement bars and chains may cause chain breakage and/or kickback.

• Follow the manufacturer’s sharpening and maintenance instructions for the saw chain. Decreasing the depth gauge height can lead to increased kickback.

• The first time user should request an experienced operator in the use of the chainsaw and the protective equipment, and should be have the initial practice cutting logs on a saw horse or cradle.

• In the interest of personal safety it is highly recommended: when using the chain saw always use it with a residual current device (RCD) with a tripping current of 30 mA or less.

• Position the cord so that it will not be caught on branches and the like, during cutting.

ATTENTION FOR USAGE OF ELECTRIC CHAIN SAW

• Before any cutting, you must wait for the saw chain running to reach a stable speed.

• When cutting wood, please do not press the chain saw with big force.

• During cutting, if the saw chain is stuck in the wood, please stop the saw immediately, and take the saw out of the wood carefully. Restart the saw till the saw chain reaches a stable speed, and then re-cut again.

• Operate the machine properly, activate the trigger completely during use. And do not work continuously for a long time to avoid overuse fatigue.

IMPORTANT SAFETY

How to read symbols

1. Avoid bar nose contact.

2. Beware of kick back.

3. Do not attempt to hold saw with one hand.

4. Recommended cutting procedure. Hold saw properly with both hands.

ASSEMBLY

Before using the equipment:

BATTERY CHARGER

The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any time and will not develop a “memory” when charged after only a partial discharge. It is not necessary to run down the battery pack charge before recharging. Remove the battery pack from the tool when convenient for you and your job. You can “top-off” your battery pack’s charge before starting a big job or long period of use.

Due to lithium-ion’s fade-free properties, the only time it is necessary to charge the lithium-ion battery pack is when the pack has reached the end of its charge. To signal the end of charge, power to the tool will drop quickly. Charge the battery pack as needed.

CHARGING THE BATTERY

This lithium-ion battery pack is shipped partially charged. Before using it the first time, fully charge the battery pack. A fully discharged battery pack with a temperature between 0°C and 40°C will charge in about 1 hour.

Plug the charger adapter into power source. The green light on the charger stand will illuminate, indicating the charger is powered.

Slide the battery all the way into the charger stand. The red light on the charger stand will illuminate, indicating that the battery is charging.

The red light will go off after charging is complete and a green light will appear.

NOTE: Batteries may become warm while charging. This is normal. If the battery is hot after continuous use in the tool, allow it to cool down to room temperature before charging. This will extend the life of your batteries.

WARNING: Always disconnect the battery pack from the tool before any assembly, adjustments or changing accessories.

INSERTION AND REMOVAL OF RECHARGEABLE BATTERY

Depress the battery-release button located on the front of the battery pack to release battery pack.

Pull the battery pack out and remove it from the tool.

WARNING: Always remove the battery pack before making adjustments to the equipment.

SAWING TECHNIQUE: PULL SAWING

With this technique, sawing takes place with the underside of the guide bar from top to bottom.

The saw chain pulls the device forwards and away from the user. With this action, the front edge of the device forms a support, which absorbs the forces that arise on the tree trunk during sawing. With pull sawing, the user has significantly greater control over the device and is able to better avoid kickbacks. This sawing technique should therefore be used if possible.

If the guide bar tilts, the device may be jerked towards the user with great force. If the user does not balance the backward force of the saw chain with their body strength, there is a risk that only the tip of the guide bar will remain in contact with the wood and kickback will occur.

Risk of death or serious injuries!

Risk of injury!

Felling and branch removal work may only be performed by trained personnel! There is a risk of life threatening injuries!

Before starting felling work, make sure that:

• no bystanders or animals are in the felling area (A).

• a clear evacuation route, free of obstacles, is available to all participants. Withdrawal (B) takes place at an oblique angle to the felling direction.

• the area around the trunk is clear of obstacles (risk of tripping!).

• the nearest workplace is at least 2½ trunk lengths away. Before felling, check the felling direction of the tree and make sure that no obstacles, persons or animals are within a distance of 2½ tree lengths.

Tree felling takes place in two steps:

• Saw a felling sink in the trunk of around one third of its diameter, on the side of the felling direction

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OVERVIEW

After every use,clean the device.

Regularly, depending on the conditions of use:

• Re-tighten the saw chain.

• Clean guide bar oil guide groove.

• Sharpen the saw chain.

• Check the saw chain oil level, top up if necessary.

WARNING! Do not use water or liquid cleaning products.

CAUTION! Clean the device after every use. An unclean device will lead to material damage and malfunctions.

• Use a damp cloth and a soft brush to clean the device.

• Take off the chain over and then remove the deposits on the guide rail, saw chain, chain wheel and chain cover with a soft brush.

• Keep the ventilation slots clean and free of dust.

RE-TIGHTENING THE SAW CHAIN

The saw chain must not sag, although it should be possible to pull it 1-2 mm away from the guide bar in the centre of the guide bar. Turn the hand wheel anticlockwise, sufficiently that the guide bar can be moved by hand.

• Turn the chain tensioning wheel, so that the chain is tensioned.

• Turn the saw chain by hand, to check it runs freely. It must glide freely in the rail.

• Tighten the hand wheel for fastening the rail and chain cover.

NOTE: The tension of a new chain must be checked after a few minutes in operation, and adjusted if necessary. Apply the chain brake.

CLEANING THE GUIDE BAR OIL GUIDE GROOVE

• Dismantle the guide bar.

• Clean the oil guide groove of dirt with a suitable tool.

• Use a plastic spatula, do not use steel tools!

• Refit the guard bar.

SHARPENING THE SAW CHAIN

Special tools are required to sharpen the saw chain; these ensure that the chain cutting edges are sharpened at the correct angle and to the correct depth. We recommend having the saw chain sharpened by a specialist.
