y-operated (cordless) po wer tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY
Keep w ork area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate po
wer tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of
gases or dust. P ower tools create sparks which ma y ignite the dust
c) Keep children and b
ystanders away while operating a po wer tool. Distr actions can
cause you to lose control.
2) ELECTRICAL SAFETY
P ower tool plugs m ust match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any wa y . Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) po
wer tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electr
ic shoc k.
Av oid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electr ic shoc k if your body is
