GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS 

BEFORE USING THIS POWER TOOL
Safety is a combination of common 

sense, staying alert and knowing how 

to use your power tool.
CAUTION

To avoid mistakes that could cause 

serious injury, do not plug the tool in 

until you have read and understood 

the following.
1.  

READ and become familiar 

with the entire Operator’s 

Manual. 

LEARN the tool’s 

application, limitations and 

possible hazards.

2. 

KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in 

working order.

3. 

REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS 

AND WRENCHES. Form the habit 

of checking to see that keys and 

adjusting wrenches are removed 

from the tool before turning ON.

4. 

KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN

Cluttered areas and benches invite 

accidents.

5. 

DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS 

ENVIRONMENTS. Do not use 

power tools in damp locations, or 

expose them to rain or snow. Keep 

work area well lit.

6.

PROOF with padlocks, master 

switches or by removing starter 

keys.

8. 

DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will 

do the job better and safer at the 

rate for which it was designed.

9. 

USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not 

force the tool or an attachment 

to do a job for which it was not 

designed. 

10. 

USE PROPER EXTENSION 

CORDS. Make sure your extension 

cord is in good condition. When 

using an extension cord, be sure 

to use one heavy enough to carry 

the current your product wil  draw. 

An undersized cord wil  result in a 

drop in line voltage and in loss of 

power which wil  cause the tool to 

overheat. If in doubt, use the next 

heavier gauge. The smal er the 

gauge number, the heavier the cord.

11. 

WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Do 

not wear loose clothing, gloves, 

neckties, rings, bracelets or other 

jewelry which may get caught in 

moving parts. Nonslip footwear is 

recommended. Wear protective 

hair covering to contain long hair.

12. 

ALWAYS WEAR EYE 

PROTECTION. Any 

power tool can throw 

foreign objects into the 

eyes and could cause permanent 

eye damage. 

ALWAYS wear Safety 

Goggles (not glasses) that comply 

with ANSI Safety standard Z87.1. 

Everyday eyeglasses have only 

impact–resistant lenses. They 

ARE NOT safety glasses. Safety 

Goggles are available at Sears.

 

NOTE: Glasses or goggles not in 

compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could 

seriously injure you when they 

break.
