General Safety Rules
WARNING! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below mayresult in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power tool” in all of thewarnings listed below refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1) WORK AREA SAFETYa) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence offlammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dustor fumes.c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions cancause you to lose control2) ELECTRICAL SAFETYa) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do notuse any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs andmatching outlets will reduce risk of electric shockb) 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 isearthed or grounded.c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool willincrease the risk of electric shockd) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging thepower tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damagedor entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock. Replace or repair damaged cords.Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. Use only 3-wire extension cords thathave 3-prong grounding-type plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.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. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product willdraw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power andoverheating. The following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord lengthand nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gagenumber, the heavier the cord.Recommended Minimum Wire Size for Extension CordsTotal Length of Cord25 ft. 50 ft. 75 ft. 100 ft. 125 ft. 150 ft. 175 ft.7.6 m 15.2 m 22.9 m 30.5 m 38.1 m 45.7 m 53.3 mWire Size AWG

3) PERSONAL SAFETYa) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating apower tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of
drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power toolsmay
result in serious personal injury.b) Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such asdust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriateconditions will reduce personal injuries.c) Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before plugging in.Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have theswitch on invites accidents.d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench ora key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables bettercontrol of the power tool in unexpected situations.f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing andgloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught inmoving parts. Air vents often cover moving parts and should also be avoided.g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities,ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.4) POWER TOOL USE AND CAREa) 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 thatcannot 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 powertool 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 unfa-miliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Powertools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakageof parts and any other condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused bypoorly 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 instruc-tions and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool, taking intoaccount the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power toolfor operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.5) BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Ensure the switch is in the off position before inserting battery pack. Inserting the
battery pack into power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
b) 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.c) Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any otherbattery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.d) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like paperclips, coins, keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together maycause burns or a fire.e) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery, avoid contact. Ifcontact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionallyseek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.6) SERVICEa) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identicalreplacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Additional Safety Instructions
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a “live” wire willmake exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.CAUTION: Wear appropriate personal hearing protection during use. Under some conditions and duration of use, noise from this product may contribute to hearing loss.CAUTION: When not in use, place tool on its side on a stable surface where it will not
cause a tripping or falling hazard. Some tools with large battery packs will stand upright on
the battery pack but may be easily knocked over. WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other repro-ductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber (CCA).Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. Toreduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work withapproved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter outmicroscopic particles.
Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and
other construction activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas withsoap and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may promoteabsorption of harmful chemicals.

Important Safety Instructions for Battery Packs
When ordering replacement battery packs, be sure to include catalog number and voltage:Extended Run-Time battery packs deliver more run-time than standard battery packs. Consultthe chart at the end of this manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
NOTE: Your tool will accept either standard or Extended Run Time battery packs. However, be
sure to select proper voltage. Batteries slowly lose their charge when they are not on thecharger, the best place to keep your battery is on the charger at all times. The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack andcharger, read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely damaged or is completely worn
out. The battery pack can explode in a fire.
A small leakage of liquid from the battery pack cells may occur under extreme usage
or temperature conditions. This does not indicate a failure. However, if the outer seal is
broken and this leakage gets on your skin:a. Wash quickly with soap and water.b. Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.c. If battery liquid gets into your eyes, flush them with clean water for a minimum of
10 minutes and seek immediate medical attention. (Medical note: The liquid is 25-35%
solution of potassium hydroxide.) Charge the battery packs only in D
E
WALT chargers.
DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature mayreach or exceed 105°F (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).DANGER: Electrocution hazard. Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. Ifbattery pack case is cracked or damaged, do not insert into charger. Electric shock or electro-cution may result. Damaged battery packs should be returned to service center for recycling.NOTE: Battery storage and carrying caps are provided for use whenever thebattery is out of the tool or charger. Remove cap before placing battery incharger or tool.WARNING: Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so that metal objectscan contact exposed battery terminals. For example, do not place battery inaprons, pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose nails,
screws, keys, etc. without battery cap. Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the
battery terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive materials such as keys,coins, hand tools and the like. The US Department of Transportation Hazardous MaterialRegulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e.,packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on thenickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride batteries (or battery packs) indicate thatthe costs to recycle these batteries (or battery packs) at the end of their useful lifehave already been paid by DEWALT.
