General Safety Rules
WARNING! Read all instructions
Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric
shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
The term “power tool” in all of the
warnings listed below refers to your
line-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power
tool.
Work Area
1. Keep your work area clean and well
lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. Keep bystanders, children, and
visitors away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control. Protect others in
the work area from debris such as chips
and sparks. Provide barriers or shields
as needed.
Electrical Safety
1. Avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges, and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your
body is grounded.
2. Do not expose power tools to rain
or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
3. Grounded tools must be plugged
into an outlet properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all
codes and ordinances. Never remove
the grounding prong or modify the plug
in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs. Check with a qualified electrician
if you are in doubt as to whether the
outlet is properly grounded. If the
tools should electrically malfunction or
break down, grounding provides a low
resistance path to carry electricity away
from the user.
4. The Charger Adapter is equipped
with a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will
fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install
a polarized outlet. Do not change the
plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three wire
grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
5. Do not abuse the Charger Adapter
charging cable. Never use it to carry
the tool or pull the Adapter from an
outlet. Keep the charging cable away
from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving
parts. Replace Charger Adapter when
charging cable is damaged.

6. When operating a power tool
outside, use an outdoor extension
cord marked “W-A” or “W”. These
extension cords are rated for outdoor
use, and reduce the risk of electric
shock.
Personal Safety
1. Stay alert. Watch what you are
doing, and use common sense
when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result
in serious personal injury.
2. Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair.
Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
3. Avoid accidental starting. Be sure
the Power Switch is off before plugging
in. Carrying power tools with your
finger on the Power Switch, or plugging
in power tools with the Power Switch
on, invites accidents.
4. Remove adjusting keys or wrenches
before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key that is left attached to
a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.
Tool Use and Care
1. Use clamps (not included) or other
practical ways to secure and support
the workpiece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against
your body is unstable and may lead to
loss of control.
2. Do not force the tool. Use the correct
tool for your application. The correct
tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it is designed.
3. Do not use the power tool if the
Trigger Switch does not turn it on or
off. Any tool that cannot be controlled
with the Trigger Switch is dangerous
and must be replaced.
4. Disconnect the Charger Adapter from
the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the tool accidentally.
5. Store idle tools out of reach of
children and other untrained
persons. Tools are dangerous in the
hands of untrained users.
6. Maintain tools with care. Keep
cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained tools with a sharp cutting
edge are less likely to bind and
are easier to control. Do not use a
damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “Do
not use” until repaired.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times. Proper 7. Check for misalignment or binding of
footing and balance enables better
moving parts, breakage of parts, and
control of the power tool in unexpected
any other condition that may affect
situations.
the tool’s operation. If damaged,
have the tool serviced before using.
6. Use safety equipment. Always wear
Many accidents are caused by poorly
eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid
maintained tools.
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
SKU 95065
8. Use only accessories that are
recommended by the manufacturer
for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may become
hazardous when used on another tool.

Service
1. Tool service must be performed by
qualified repair personnel. Service
performed by unqualified personnel
could result in a risk of injury.

7. Make sure the extension cord is
properly wired and in good electrical
condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by a
qualified electrician before using it.
8. Protect the extension cords from sharp
objects, excessive heat, and damp or
wet areas.
1. Grounded tools require a three wire
extension cord. Double Insulated
tools can use either a two or three wire
extension cord.
2. As the distance from the supply outlet
increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension
cords with inadequately sized wire
causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible
tool damage. (See Table A.)

3. The smaller the gauge number of the
wire, the greater the capacity of the
cord. For example, a 14 gauge cord
can carry a higher current than a 16
