Hitachi DH24PF3 Power Hammer User Manual

WARNING: Read and understand all instructions.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
1. Work Area
(1) Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
(2) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust of fumes.
(3) Keep bystanders children, and visitors away while operating a power
tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical Safety
(1) Double Insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other.) This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet.
Do not change the plug in any way. Double Insulation
eliminates the
need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply
(2) Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is grounded.
(3) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
(4) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tools or pull the
plug from a receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
(5) When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord
marked W-A or W. These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
3. Personal Safety
(1) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use tool while tires or under the influence
of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal injury.
(2) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
