3 Safety warnings

FESTOOL CTC MIDI I Cordless Mobile Dust extractor Instruction Manual - Safety warningsIMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using an electrical appliance, basis precautions should always be followed, including the following: READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS DUST EXTRACTOR:

⚠ WARNING – To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or in jury: ­
– Disconnect battery pack before cleaning or servicing.
– Use indoors only.
– Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
– Use only as describes in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
– If the dust extractor is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center.
– Do not handle dust extractor with wet hands.
– Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow.
– Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
– Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
– Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids, such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.
– Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes, hot chips or particles, sparks.
– Do not use without dust bag and/or filters in place.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Further safety instructions ­
– This appliance must not be used by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience
– This machine must not be used by people who might have a particularly adverse reaction to an electric shock (e.g. people with cardiac pacemakers), because the possibility of the machine building up a static charge cannot be excluded.
– Ensure you are on a firm base. The effects of a shock moment, e.g. due to antistatic discharge, may lead to accidents.
– WARNING! Operators must be appropriately instructed in the use of this machine.
– WARNING! Device may contain hazardous dust. Only have the device maintained and emptied, and only have the filter replaced by an authorised specialist using suitable protective equipment.
– Always operate with the filter system installed!
– Risk of explosion and fire: Do not extract:
– Sparks or hot dust;
– combustible or explosive materials (e.g. magnesium, aluminium, petrol, diluting agents);
– aggressive materials (e.g. acid, alkaline solutions, solvents);
– chemically reactive materials, which lead to the generation of heat, acids/bases, gases, etc. (e.g. reactive two-component materials, aluminium and water).
– Observe all national safety regulations as well as the material manufacturer’s specifications!
– ⚠ WARNING! Do not extract embers or other ignition sources. Do not use in conjunction with machines that generate sparks! Per NFPA 484, do not collect incompatible materials that may react with the metal particles and do not use the dust extractor to collect materials it was not designed to collect. Doing so can result in the contents of the dust extractor catching fire.
– WARNING! If foam or fluid starts to escape, switch off the machine immediately.
– CAUTION! Regularly clean the water level limiting device and inspect it for signs of damage.
– Always use suitable protective equipment!
– If intact following a visual inspection, work in a dry environment according to instructions!
– Do not lift or transport the device using a crane hook or lifting gear.
– Only carry the machine using the handle provided.
– Use only the original Festool suction hose.
– Check the battery interface and the filter regularly in order to prevent a hazard. In the event of damage, the battery interface must be replaced by an authorised service workshop only.
– Pay attention to the work environment and watch out for your own safety and the safety of others when transporting or working with the machine.
In this way, you can for example prevent tripping hazards caused by the suction hose or mains cable.
– Keep packaging film away from children.
There is a risk of suffocation.
– NOTE
This machine is only intended for indoor use.
This machine must only be stored indoors.
Follow the operating manual for the charger and the battery pack.
– Do not use power supply units or third-party battery packs to operate cordless devices. Do not use third-party chargers to charge the battery pack. The use of accessories not expressly authorised by the manufacturer can result in electric shocks and/or serious accidents.
– Keep the unused battery pack away from metal objects (e.g. nails, screws, keys, paper clips, etc.) that could cause bridging of the contacts. A short circuit between the battery contacts can cause burns or fire.
– Only use the battery pack in combination with your Festoon device.
This is the only way to protect the battery pack from dangerous overload. Use of another device can lead to injury and fire hazard.
– Do not use a battery pack or appliance that is damaged or modified.
Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behaviour resulting in fire, explosion or risk of injury.
– Disconnect the battery pack from the appliance before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing appliance. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the appliance accidentally.

Health hazard by dust
⚠ WARNING!
various 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 products, and
­- arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber.

FESTOOL CTC MIDI I Cordless Mobile Dust extractor Instruction Manual - arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber

The 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 dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles. Wash hands after handling.

⚠ WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY, USER MUST READ INSTRUCTION MANUAL.
