Safety Notes
f Improper use can cause serious injury. Please read all
safety precautions and the user manual before use.
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all instruc-
tions. Failure to follow the warnings and
instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or seri-
ous injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) power tool.
Explanation of symbols
Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Fail-
ure to follow the warnings and instructions may re-
sult in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Danger – rotating blade. Keep hands and feet
out of openings while the machine is running.
Do not use the machine in the rain or leave it
outdoors when it is raining.
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 atmos-
pheres, such as in the presence of flammable liq-
uids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operat-
ing a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapt-
er plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Un-
modified plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded sur-
faces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrig-
erators. 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 condi-
tions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for car-
rying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep
cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving
parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an ex-
tension cord suitable for outdoor 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 un-
avoidable, 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 com-
mon sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A mo-
ment of inattention while operating power tools
may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will re-
duce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on
the switch or energising power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turn-
ing the power tool on. A wrench or a key left at-
tached to a rotating part of the power tool may re-
sult in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and bal-
ance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jew-
ellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used. Use of dust col-
lection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct pow-
er 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 cannot 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 be-
fore making any adjustments, changing accesso-
ries, or storing power tools. Such preventive safe-
ty 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 pow-
er tool or these instructions to operate the power
tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of un-
trained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power
tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained power tools.

f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly main-
tained 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, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a haz-
ardous situation.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one
type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when
used with another battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
c) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects,
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together
may cause burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact acci-
dentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid con-
tacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified re-
pair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.

Battery Charging (see main figure)
f Do not use other battery chargers. The supplied bat-
tery charger is designed for the Lithium-Ion battery in
your machine.
Observe correct mains voltage: The voltage of the power
source must agree with the voltage specified on the
nameplate of the unit. Equipment marked with 230 V can
also be connected to 220 V or 240 V.
The Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) protects the lithium
ion battery against deep discharging. When the battery is
run down or discharged, the machine is shut off by means
of a protective circuit: The blade no longer moves.
Do not continue to press the On/Off
switch after the machine has been auto-
matically switched off. The battery can be damaged.
Plug the mains plug of the battery charger into a socket
outlet and the charger plug 6 into the socket 5 on the rear
side of the handle.
The battery charge indicator 3 lights up green to indicate
the charging procedure. The battery is fully charged as
soon as the battery charge indicator 3 is no longer lit.
– During the charging procedure, the handle of the ma-
chine warms up. This is normal.
– Disconnect the battery charger from the mains supply
when not using it for longer periods.
– The power tool cannot be used during the charge pro-
cedure; it is not defective when inoperative during the
charging procedure.
f Protect the battery charger against moisture!
