General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all in-
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 toolorbattery-operated(cordless)
power tool.
Work area safety
 Keepworkareacleanandwelllit.Clutteredordarkareas
invite accidents.
 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.
 Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
 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 shock.
 Avoidbodycontactwithearthedorgroundedsurfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
 Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
 Do not abuse the cord. Neveruse the cord for carrying,
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.
 When operating a power tool outdoors, use an exten-
sioncord suitablefor outdooruse. Use ofa cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
 If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoid-
able, use a residual current device (RCD) protected
supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
 Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sensewhenoperatinga power tool.Do notuse apower
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
 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 reduce personal inju-
 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 en-
ergising power tools that have the switch on invites acci-
 Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a ro-
tating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
 Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
 Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewel-
lery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
movingparts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
 If devices are provided for the connection of dust ex-
traction and collection facilities, ensure these are con-
nected and properly used. Use of dust collection can re-
duce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care

 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.
 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.
 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.
 Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or bind-
ing of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
conditionthat may affectthe power tool’s operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power

and are easier to control.
 Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in ac-
cordance 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 hazardous situation.
Battery tool use and care
 Recharge only with the charger specified by the manu-
facturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery
pack may create a risk of fire when used with another bat-
tery pack.
 Use power tools only with specifically designated bat-
tery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.
 When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from oth-
er 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.
 Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally oc-
curs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, addition-
ally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery
may cause irritation or burns.
 Haveyourpowertoolservicedbyaqualifiedrepairper-
son using only identical replacement parts. This will en-
sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Drills and
 Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool. Loss
of control can cause personal injury.
 Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when
performing an operation where the cutting accessory
or fastener may contact hidden wiring.Cutting accesso-
ry and fasteners contacting a “live” wire may make ex-
posed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give
the operator an electric shock.
 Use appropriate detectors to determine if utility lines
are hidden in the work area or call the local utility com-
pany for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead
to fire and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to
explosion. Penetrating a water line causes property dam-
 Switchoffthepowertoolimmediatelywhenthetoolin-
sert jams. Be prepared for high reaction torque that
can cause kickback. The tool insert jams when:
— the power tool is subject to overload or
— it becomes wedged in the workpiece.
 Hold the machine with a firm grip. High reaction torque
can briefly occur while driving in and loosening screws.
 Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamp-
ing devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
 Always wait until the machine has come to a complete
stop before placing it down. The tool insert can jam and
lead to loss of control over the power tool.
 Do not open the battery. Danger of short-circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat, e. g., against
continuous intense sunlight, fire, water, and
moisture. Danger of explosion.
 In case of damage and improper use of the battery, va-
pours may be emitted. Ventilate the area and seek
medical help in case of complaints. The vapours can irri-
tate the respiratory system.
 Use the battery only in conjunction with your Bosch
power tool. This measure alone protects the battery
against dangerous overload.
 Thebatterycanbedamagedbypointedobjectssuchas
nails or screwdrivers or by force applied externally. An
internal short circuit can occur and the battery can burn,
smoke, explode or overheat.
Additional Safety and Working
 Dustsfrommaterialssuchaslead-containingcoatings,
one’s health and cause allergic reactions, lead to res-
piratory infections and/or cancer. Materials containing
asbestos may only be worked by specialists.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the
materials to be worked.
 Prevent dust accumulation at the workplace.Dusts can
easily ignite. Page 9 Wednesday, December 4, 2013 9:28 AM

The vibration level given in this information sheet has been
measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with anoth-
er. It may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main ap-
plications of the tool. However if the tool is used for different
poorly maintained, the vibration emission may differ. This
may significantly increase the exposure level over the total
working period.
An estimation of thelevelofexposuretovibrationshouldalso
take into account the times when the tool is switched off or
when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may sig-
nificantly reduce the exposure level over the total working
