u Prevent unintentional starting. Make
sure that the switch is in the off-
position before connecting to a power
source and/or battery pack, picking up
or carrying the appliance. Carrying ap-
pliances with your finger on the switch
or energising appliances that have the
switch on invites accidents.
u Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the appliance in unex-
pected situations.
u Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.

damaged or defective parts. Check for
breakage of parts, damage to switches
and any other conditions that may af-
fect its operation.
u Do not use the appliance if the switch
does not turn it on and off.Any appli-
ance that cannot be controlled with
the switch is dangerous and must be
u Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from
the appliance before making any

not use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) appliance. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
u Do not expose appliance to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a appliance
will increase the risk of electric shock.

cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the appliance. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.

u When operating an appliance out-
doors, use an extension cord suitable
for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.

Current Device (RCD) protected sup-
ply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
After Use

be stored in a dry, well ventilated place
out of the reach of children.
u Children should not have access to
stored appliances.
u When the appliance is stored or trans-
ported in a vehicle it should be placed
in the boot or restrained to prevent
movement following sudden changes
in speed or direction.
u Have your appliance serviced by a
qualified repair person using only
identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the appliance
is maintained.
