Work area safety
 Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite acci-
 Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in
the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools cre-
ate 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)
electric shock.
 Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as
of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
 Donotexposepowertoolstorainorwetconditions.Waterentering
a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
 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 and moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
 When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suit-
able for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces
the risk of electric shock.
 If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a
residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD re-
duces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
 Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when
operatinga powertool. Donotuse apower tool whileyouare tired

This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
 Dressproperly.Donotwearlooseclothingorjewellery.Keepyour
hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
 If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly
used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.

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, chang-
ing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.

accordance with a standardised test given in EN 60745 and may be used
tocompare one toolwithanother.Itmaybe used for apreliminaryassess-
ment of exposure.
The declared vibrationemission levelrepresents the main applications of
the tool. However if the tool is used for different applications, with differ-
ent accessories or insertion tools or is poorly maintained, the vibration
emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level
over the total working period.
count the times when the tool is switched off or when it is running but not
actually doing the job. This may significantly reduce the exposure level
over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator from the ef-
fectsofvibration suchas:maintain the tool and the accessories,keep the
hands warm, organisation of work patterns.

against deep discharging. When the battery is discharged, the power tool
is switched off by a protective circuit.
After the automatic shut-off of the power tool, do
not continuetopress the trigger. The battery could
become damaged.
A battery that is new or has not been used for a longer period does not de-
velop its full capacity until after approx. 5 charging/discharging cycles.
When the battery charge-control indicator 2 lights up red during opera-
tion, the battery capacity is below 30% and the battery should be
– Plug the mains plug of the battery charger into a socket outlet and the
charger plug 8 into the socket 4 on the rear side of the handle.
The battery charge-control indicator 2 indicates the charging progress.
The indicator flashes green during the charge procedure. The battery is
completely charged when the indicator lights up green continuously.

profiled wood or grooves.
 When the staple is jammed in the machine, do not hold the ma-
chineby thetrigger.Whenremovingajammedstaple,thetriggercan
be inadvertently actuated.
Avoid blank shots in order to reduce the wear of the impact striker.

with two staples, making it into a booklet. The maximum size of the
sheets to be tacked is A4 (210 mm wide).For centre tacking of sheets
of A5 size, positioning marks are available.
Note: Tack staples are stronger than standard staples and are therefore
more difficult to remove from the paper.
