Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
15.
Dress properly. Do not we
ar 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.
16.
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.
Power tool use and care
17.
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.
18.
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.
19.
Disconnect the plug from the power source
and/or the battery pack
from the power tool
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or stor
ing power tools.
Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
20.
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.
21.
Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may affect the
power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
22.
Keep cutting tools
sharp and clean.
Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
23.
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.
Service
24.
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.
25.
Follow instruction for lubricating and
changing accessories.
26.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your
extension cord is in good condition. When using an
extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct size to
use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere
rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller
the gage number, the heavier the cord.
