too close to the spinning chuck or drill
Your hand may be lacerated.
Do not use the switch "Lock-ON" feature
in situations where drill bit binding is
likely. (For example: just before the bit is
ready to break through the material,
anytime when using a "Hole Saw", auger
bits........ etc.)
When the bit binds, the drill's
body will twist or kick-back in opposite
direction and the release of the trigger "Lock-
ON" may be difficult.

first pulling the trigger then immediately
releasing it without pressing the "Lock-ON"

contact with skin and use proper
protective gloves when grasping the bit
or accessory.
Accessories may be hot after

This tool may be used with sanding and
polishing disks, grinding wheels, wire
wheel and wire cup brushes. These
accessories must be rated for at least the
speed recommended on the tool warning
Wheels and other accessories
running over rated speed can fly apart and
cause injury.
Avoid bouncing and snagging the wheels,
discs or brushes especially when working
corners, sharp edges, etc.
This can cause
loss of control and kickback.
Some dust created by
power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities contains chemicals known 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 products, and
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 microscopic particles.
