RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY
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. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off position before connecting to the power source and/ or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch, or energizing power tools that are switched on, invites 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. Always wear eye protection. Any power tool can throw foreign objects into your eyes and cause permanent eye damage. Always wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI safety standard Z87.1. Every day glasses have only impact resistant lenses. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering the power tools will increase the risk of electric shock. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool/machine. Do not use a power tool/machine while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tool/machine may result in serious personal injury. 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. Remove any adjusting key or spanner before turning the power tool/machine on. A spanner or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool/machine may result in personal injury. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool/ machine in unexpected situations. Dress appropriately. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
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.
WORK AREA SAFETY
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents. Do not operate power tool/machines in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tool/machines create sparks that may ignite dust or fumes. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool/machine. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
GENERAL POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
Do not force the power tool/machine. Use the correct power tool/machine for your application. The correct power tool/machine will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed. Do not use the power tool/machine if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool/machine that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool/machine before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tool/machine tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool/machine accidentally. Store idle power tool/machine out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool/ machine or these instructions to operate the power tool/ machine. Power tool/machines are dangerous in the hands of untrained users. Maintain power tool/machines. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tool/machines operation. If damaged, have the power tool/machines repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tool/machines. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control. Use the power tool/machine accessories and tool bits in accordance with these instructions, take into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool/machine for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Never soak or immerse electrical components and or a component that has a plug attached. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally. Ensure the motor has fully stopped before cleaning, clearing a blockage, checking, or carrying out any maintenance on the tool. Maintain your power tool. 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 by a qualified repair person before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control. Regularly check external nuts and fixings to ensure vibration caused by normal use has not begun to loosen them. Store idle power tools out of reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the Breaker. Locate the power tool out of reach of children, in a dry, locked unit. Make sure that the cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or stress. Remove the plug from the mains socket/battery (where applicable) before carrying out any adjustment or maintenance. Always store the power tool/machine in a dry place. If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified service technician. Keep the ventilation slots and motor housing as free of dirt and dust as possible (where applicable).
