GENERAL SAFETY RULES – FOR ALL ELECTRIC POWER TOOLS

READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

RECOGNIZE SAFETY SYMBOLS, WORDS AND LABELS

The safety instructions provided in this manual are not intended to cover all possible conditions and practices that may occur when operating, maintaining and cleaning power tools.

Always use common sense and pay particular attention to all the DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION and NOTE statements of this manual.

This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential personal injury hazards. Obey all safety messages that follow this symbol to avoid possible injury or death.

DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.

WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

2

CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.

CAUTION used without the safety alert symbol indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in property damage.

NOTE provides additional information that is useful for proper use and maintenance of this tool. If a NOTE is indicated make sure it is fully understood.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

People with electronic devices, such as pacemakers, should consult their physician(s) before using this product. Operation of electrical equipment in close proximity to a heart pacemaker could cause interference or failure of the pacemaker.

WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Some examples of these chemicals are:

Lead from lead-based paints.

Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.

Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

WORK AREA

Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered work benches and dark work areas may cause accidents or injury.

Do not operate power tools in explosive areas, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.

Keep bystanders, children and visitors away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other.) This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.

Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.

Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.

Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool or pull the plug from an outlet. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.

When operating the power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or “W. ”These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock.

Make sure the extension cord being used is in good condition. If there are any cut or nicks (no matter how deep) in the insulation, DO NOT use that cord. Also, make sure the extension cord is heavy enough to carry the current needed by the saw (see ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS). DO NOT use small "around-the- house” lamp extension cords. These cords can easily overheat and/or catch fire when used with power tools.
