Wear ear protection. Wear eye protection. Do not expose to rain or damp condition. –– Wear eye protection at all times. RISK REDUCTION It has been reported that vibrations from handheld tools may contribute to a condition called Raynaud’s Syndrome. Symptoms may include tingling, numbness, and blanching of the fingers, usually apparent upon exposure to cold. Hereditary factors, exposure to cold and dampness, diet, smoking, and work practices are all thought to contribute to the development of these symptoms. There are measures that can be taken by the operator to possibly reduce the effects of vibration: ■■ Keep your body warm in cold weather. When operating the product, wear gloves to keep the hands and wrists warm. ■■ After each period of operation, exercise to increase blood circulation. ■■ Take frequent work breaks. Limit the amount of exposure per day. If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, immediately discontinue use and see your physician. ￼ WARNING Injuries may be caused or aggravated by prolonged use of a tool. When using any tool for prolonged periods, ensure you take regular breaks. SYMBOLS ON THE PRODUCT 80 dB 94 dB A-weighted sound pressure level at the operator position is 80 dB.

Downloaded from www.manualsdb.com manuals search engine WARNING The declared vibration value has been measured with a standard test method and may be used to compare one tool with another. The declared vibration value may be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure. The vibration emission during actual use of power tool can differ from the declared total value depending on the ways in which the tool is used. Identify safety measures to protect yourself based on an estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use, taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time.
