power tool for your application. The correct
power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does
not turn it on and oﬀ . Any power tool that can-
not be controlled with the switch is dangerous
and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source
and/or the battery pack from the power tool
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing power tools. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) 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.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may aﬀ ect the
power tool's operation. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions, tak-
ing into account the working conditions and
the work to be performed. Use of the power
tool for operations diﬀ erent from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.

the charger recommended by the manufacturer.
Chargers are often designed for a particular
type of rechargeable battery unit. There is the
danger of ﬁ re if other types of rechargeable
battery units are used.
b) Only the rechargeable battery units supplied
are to be used with an electrical power tool.
The use of other rechargeable battery units may
lead to the danger of injury or ﬁ re.
c) When they are not being used, store recharge-
able battery units away from paperclips,
coins, keys. nails, screws or other small metal
objects that could cause the contacts to be
bridged. Short-circuiting the contacts of a
rechargeable battery unit may result in heat
damage or ﬁ re.
d) Fluids may leak out of rechargeable battery
units if they are misused. If this happens,
avoid contact with the ﬂ uid. If contact occurs,
ﬂ ush the aﬀ ected area with water. Seek addi-
tional medical help if any of the ﬂ uid gets into
your eyes. Escaping battery ﬂ uid may cause
skin irritation or burns.
