SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having
an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instruction are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to
whether the tool is properly grounded.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tools plug.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.
Grounded, cord-connected tools intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating Iess than 150 volts:
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Figure A. The tool has a grounding plug
that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A. A temporary adapter which looks like the adapter illustrated in figure B and C, may be
