The vibration level specified in
these instructions was measured in accordance with
an EN 60745 standardised measurement process
and can be used to compare equipment. The vibra-
tion emission value specified can also serve as a
preliminary assessment of the exposure.
The vibration level will change according to the ap-
plication of the electrical tool an in some cases may
exceed the value specified in these instructions. Re-
gularly using the electric tool in such a way may make
it easy to underestimate the vibration.
Note: If you wish to make an accurate assessment
of the vibration loads experienced during a particular
period of working, you should also take into account
the intervening periods of time when the device is
switched off or is running but is not actually in use.
This can result in a much lower vibration load over
the whole of the period of working.

The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-op-
erated (cordless) power tool.
1. Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
Introduction / General power tool safety warnings
Read all safety
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do
not use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs
and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric
b) 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.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk
of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for out-
door use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor
use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply.
Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing
and use common sense when operat-
ing a power tool. Do not use a power
tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medica-
tion. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Protective
