This declaration of conformity is issued under the sole responsibility of the manufacturer.
Conforms to the following directives, regulations and standards:
This product was CE marked in year:
BUSINESS AREA MANAGER (Signatory for Jula and authorised to compile the technical documentation.
Read all warnings, safety instructions and other instructions. Failure to follow all the instructions and safety instructions can result in the risk of electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury. Save these instructions and safety instructions for future reference.
- Keep the work area clean and well lit. Dark and cluttered work areas increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
- Do not use power tools in explosive environments, such as in the vicinity of flammable liquids, gas or dust. Power tools produce sparks that can ignite dust and fumes.
- Keep children and onlookers at a safe distance when using power tools. You can lose control of the tool if you are distracted.
- The plug on the power tool must match the power point. Never modify the plug in any way. Never use an adapter with earthed power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets reduce the risk of electric shock.
- Avoid body contact with earthed surfaces such as pipes, radiators, cookers and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed.
- Do not expose power tools to rain or moisture. There is a greater risk of electric shock if water gets into a power tool.
- Be careful with the power cord. Never use the power cord to carry or pull the tool, or to pull out the plug from the power point. Keep the power cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts. Damaged or tangled power cords increase the risk of electric shock.
- If using the tool outdoors, only use an extension cord approved for outdoor use. Cords intended for outdoor use reduce the risk of electric shock.
- If it is absolutely necessary to use power tools in damp conditions, use a mains connection protected by a residual current device (RDC). Using an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
- Stay alert. Pay attention to what you are doing, and use your common sense when working with power tools. Never use power tools if you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention when using a power tool can result in serious personal injury.
- Use personal safety equipment. Depending on the type of tool and how it is used, safety equipment such as dust masks, non-slip safety shoes, safety helmets and ear protection reduce the risk of personal injury.
- Avoid accidental starting. Make sure the power switch is in the OFF position before inserting the battery or lifting/carrying the tool. Carrying a power tool with your
finger on the switch, or connecting a tool to the mains when the switch is in the ON position, increases the risk of accidents and injuries.
- Remove adjuster keys/spanners before switching on the power tool. Spanners or the like that are left in a rotating part of the tool can cause personal injury.
- Do not overreach. Always maintain a firm footing and good balance. This ensures better control over the power tool in unexpected situations.
- Wear suitable clothing. Do not wear loose-fitting clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose-fitting clothing, jewellery and long hair can get caught in moving parts.
- If dust extraction and dust collection equipment is available, this should be connected and used correctly. The use of such equipment can reduce the risk of dust-related problems.
- Do not allow the fact that you are used to working with similar tools cause you to become over-confident and to disregard the safety instructions for the tool. A moment of inattention or carelessness can result in serious personal injury.
USING AND LOOKING AFTER POWER TOOLS
- Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for the planned work. The tool does the job better and safer when used at the rate for which it was designed.
- Do not use the tool if it cannot be switched on and off with the power switch. Power tools that cannot be controlled with the power switch are dangerous and must be repaired .
- Pull out the plug and/or remove the battery before making any adjustments, changing accessories or putting the power tool away. These safety precautions reduce the risk of accidently starting the power tool.
- Store power tools out of the reach of children when not in use. Never allow children, or anyone who is unfamiliar with the power tool and these instructions, to use the tool. Power tools are dangerous if used by inexperienced persons.
- Keep the power tool properly maintained. Check that moving parts are properly adjusted and do not jam, and that no parts are incorrectly fitted or damaged. Check for other factors that could affect functionality. If the power tool is damaged, it must be repaired before being used again. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
- Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to jam and are easier to control.
- Use the power tool, accessories and bits etc., in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the actual working conditions and the work that is to be done. It can be dangerous to use power tools for purposes other than those for which they are intended to be used.
- Keep handles and grips clean, dry and free from oil and grease. Greasy handles and grips make it difficult to hold the tool.
- The power tool must only be serviced by qualified personnel using identical spare parts. This will ensure that the power tool remains safe to use.
SAFBY INSTRUCTIONS FOR GRINDING, STEEL BRUSHING, POLISHING AND CUTTING
- The product is intended for polishing. Read all warnings, safety instructions and other instructions. Failure to follow all the instructions below can result in the risk of electric shock, fire and/ or serious personal injury.
- The product is not recommended for grinding, steel brushing, or cutting. Do not use the product for anything other than its intended purpose – risk of personal injury and/or material damage.
- Only use accessories recommended by the manufacturer. Even if an accessory can be fitted on the product, there is no guarantee that it is safe to use.
- Only use accessories with at least the same rated speed as the product. Accessories that rotate faster than their rated speed can shatter and cause personal injury.
- Never use accessories with an external diameter or thickness larger than what the product is intended for. Using accessories of the incorrect size will make the product difficult to handle and cause the safety devices to malfunction.
- Only use accessories with the correct size and shape of centre hole to fit on the product. An incorrect size and shape of centre hole will result in imbalance in the product and excessive vibration, and can make the product difficult to use.
- Do not use damaged accessories. Always check before use that discs and other accessories are not cracked or otherwise damaged. Do not use products or accessories that are damaged, or not working properly. When the accessory has been checked and fitted, hold the product at a safe angle and run it at maximum speed for1 minute. If the accessory is damaged it will probably break during this test.
- Use personal safety equipment. Wear approved safety glasses or a visor, depending on the application. Use supplementary protective equipment, such as dust filter mask, ear protection, gloves and an apron if necessary. Use eye and face protection to stop chips and other particles that can be ejected when working. A dust filter mask filters dust and particles produced when working. Prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause hearing impairment.
- Keep onlookers at a safe distance from the work area. Everyone in the work area must wear personal safety equipment. Fragments of workpieces or defective accessories can result in personal injury.
- Hold the product by the insulated grips when working in areas where it could come into contact with concealed electrical cables or its own power cord. Contact with a live cable will cause the metal parts on the product to also become live – risk of electric shock.
- Lay out the power cord so that it cannot be damaged by rotating parts. otherwise the power cord can be damaged, or fasten and pull your hands or arms towards the accessory.
- Switch off the product and wait until all moving parts have completely stopped before putting it down. Otherwise the accessory can catch on the surface and cause the product to move out of control, which can result in serious personal injury. Do not start the product when carrying it at your side. Rotating parts can fasten in your clothing and cause serious personal injury.
- Clean the ventilation openings on the product at regular intervals. The tool can overheat otherwise.
- Do not use power tools in explosive environments, such as in the vicinity off flammable liquids, gas or dust. Power tools produce sparks that can ignite dust and fumes.
- Do not use accessories that require coolant. Water and coolant increase the risk of electric shock.
WARNING FOR KICK-BACK
- Hold the product firmly with both hands and hold your arms in a position that prevents kickback. Support handles should always be used to keep the tool under control. Kickback can cause the product to jerk backwards, but the user can control this by taking the appropriate measures.
- Never put your hands near moving parts. Kickback can cause the accessory to pass over your hands.
- Do not stand with any part of your body in line with the kickback trajectory. The kickback trajectory runs in the opposite direction to the movement of the accessory at the point of engagement.
- Be careful on curves, corners and edges etc. and do not allow the accessory to bounce against the workpiece. There is more risk of the accessory jamming or getting stuck, which can cause kickback.
SPECIAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POLISHING
- Do not allow any part of the polishing bonnet or its strings to rotate freely. Tuck in or cut off extruding strings. Loose strings etc. can fasten in the workpiece or your fingers – risk of personal injury.
REDUCTION OF NOISE AND VIBRATIONS
- Plan the work so that exposure to heavy vibrations is spread over a longer period.
- To reduce noise and vibrations when in use, limit the time the tool is in use, and use low-power/vibration mode and suitable safety equipment.
- Take the following precautions to minimise the risks of exposure to vibrations and/or noise:
– Only use the tool in accordance with these instructions.
– Check that the tool is in good condition.
– Use accessories in good condition, and which are suitable for the purpose.
– Keep a firm grip on the handles/ grips.
– Maintain and lubricate the tool in accordance with these instructions.
- Dust produced during the work can be harmful to health, carcinogenic, flammable or explosive. Use a dust filter mask and suitable equipment for dust extraction/ collection.
- The dust from some alloys can catch fire, or explode. Mixtures of materials increase the risk- keep the work area clean.
Fire risk. Dust in dust bags, vacuum cleaners or filters can self-ignite or be ignited by sparks, hot workpieces or other sources of heat, especially if it comes into contact with polyurethane, solvent-based paint and other chemicals. Make sure that the tool and/or workpiece do not overheat. Always empty the dust container before pausing the work.
Always wear ear protection.
The declared values for vibration and noise, which have been measured according to a standardised test method, can be used to compare different tools with each other and for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The measurement values have been determined in accordance with EN 60745-1, EN 60745-2-3.
The actual vibration and noise level when using tools may differ from the specified maximum value, depending on how the tool is used and the material. It is therefore necessary to determine which safety precautions are required to protect the user, based on an estimate of exposure in actual operating conditions (taking into account all stages of the work cycle, e.g. the time when the tool is switched off and when it is idling, in addition to the start-up time).
