General Power Tool Safety Warnings

WARNING ! Read all safety warnings and
all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions
may result in electric shock, fire and/orserious 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.
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
liquids, gases or dust. EPower tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while
­
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you
to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adaptor
plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
­
surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
­refrigerators. 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
­conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk electric shock.
d) 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 or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension 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 una-
voidable, 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
common sense when operating a power tool.
Do not operate power tools if you are tired or ill or if
you are under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Personal protective equipment can
be purchased from specialist traders.
Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
­
safety shoes, hard had, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce ­
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 attached to a
rotating part of the power tools may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. In order to prevent overtired-
ness, alternate working positions and ensure suf­
ficient breaks are taken. Keep proper footing and
­
balance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in ­
unexpected situations.
f) 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.
g) 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.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power 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 before
making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools. Such preventive safety 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 power tool or these instructions to operate
the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
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 maintained 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 hazardous 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 acciden-
tally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes,
additionally seek medical help.
Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or
burns.
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
­maintained.
Pole Pruner – safety instructions:
• Always ensure that body parts are kept clear of the
chain area. Do not remove the cut material or hold
the material that is to be cut when the blades are
turning. Only remove blocked material when the
device is switched off.
One moment of negligence when handling the Pole
­
Pruner can cause severe injuries.
• Always carry the Pole Pruner at its handle, and only
when the chain is not moving. During transport or
whilst storing the Pole Pruner, the bar cover must be
applied. Proper use of the Pole Pruner ­
reduces the risk
of ­
injuries by the chain.
• Hold the power tool by the insulated handle
­
surfaces as the chain may come into contact with
hidden power cables.
The contact of the bar with a “live” wire may energize
metal parts of the device and lead to electric shock.
Additional Safety Recommendations
Work area safety

Avoid exhaustive discharge:
If the battery is empty, the full discharge protection automatically
switches off the device to prevent the battery from discharging
fully. To prevent the fully charged battery from self-discharging
via the unplugged charger, it should be disconnected from the
charger after charging. If the battery was stored for more than
1 year, it must be fully recharged. If the battery was fully dischar-
ged, the charging indicator lamp 9 will flash rapidly at the start
of charging (twice per second). If the charging indicator lamp 9
still flashes rapidly after 10 minutes, a fault has occurred (see
8. Troubleshooting). If the error-LED ß

Tensioning the chain:
s
e
j
RISK OF BURN INJURIES!
A too tightly tensioned chain can lead to motor overload and
damage, whereas insufficient tensioning can cause the chain to
jump off the rail. A correctly tensioned chain offers the best cut-
ting performance, optimum battery life and a longer service
life. Therefore, you should check the tensioning regularly as the
chain may expand when being used (especially when the chain is
new; following first installation, the tensioning of the chain must
be checked after the chainsaw has been used for a few minutes).
v 
However, do not tension the chain immediately after use
but wait until it has cooled down.
1. 
Lift the chain s off the bar e in the middle of the bar. The gap
should be approx. 2 – 3 mm.
2. 
Turn the adjustment screw j clockwise when the tensioning of
the chain is too low, or turn the adjustment screw j anticlock-
wise when the tensioning of the chain is too strong.
3. 
Screw on the lid a.
4. 
Start the device for approx. 10 sec.
5. 
Check the tensioning of the chain again and re-adjust,
if necessary.
