d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery, avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs,
ﬂush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause
irritation or burns.
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.
Drill/Driver/Hammerdrill Safety Warnings
• Wear ear protectors when impact drilling. Exposure to noise
can cause hearing loss.
• 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 may
contact hidden wiring. Cutting accessory contacting a “live”
wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and
could give the operator an electric shock.
• Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support
the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand
or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
• Wear safety goggles or other eye protection. Hammering and
drilling operations cause chips to ﬂy. Flying particles can cause
permanent eye damage.
• Keep a ﬁrm grip on the tool at all times. Do not attempt
to operate this tool without holding it with both hands.
Operating this tool with one hand will result in loss of control.
Breaking through or encountering hard materials such as re-bar
may be hazardous as well.
• Accessories and tool may get hot during operation. Wear
gloves when handling them if performing heat producing
applications such as hammerdrilling and drilling metals.
• Do not operate this tool for long periods of time. Vibration
caused by hammer action may be harmful to your hands and arms.
Use gloves to provide extra cushion and limit exposure by taking
frequent rest periods.
• Air vents often cover moving parts and should be avoided.
Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
WARNING: ALWAYS use safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses are
NOT safety glasses. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is
dusty. ALWAYS WEAR CERTIFIED SAFETY EQUIPMENT:
• ANSI Z87.1 eye protection (CAN/CSA Z94.3),
• ANSI S12.6 (S3.19) hearing protection,
• NIOSH/OSHA/MSHA respiratory protection.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do
this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work
in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment,
such as those dust masks that are specially designed to ﬁlter out
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding,
sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities.
Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas with soap
and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on
the skin may promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
