To avoid the possibility of the appliance plug or receptacle getting wet, position the machine to one
side of a wall mounted receptacle. This will prevent water from dripping onto the receptacle or plug. A
“drip loop,” should be arranged by the user to properly position the power cord relative to the power source.
The “drip loop” is that part of the cord below the level of the receptacle, or the connector, if an exten-
sion cord is used. This method of positioning the cord prevents water traveling along the power cord
and coming in contact with the receptacle.
If the plug or receptacle gets wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker
that supplies power to the tool. Then unplug and examine for presence of water in the receptacle.
Use only extension cords that are intended for outdoor use. These extension cords are
identified by a marking “Acceptable for use with outdoor appliances; store indoors while
not in use." Use only extension cords having an electrical rating not less than the rating
of the product. Do not use damaged extension cords. Examine extension cords before
using and replace if damaged. Do not abuse extension cords and do not yank on any
cord to disconnect. Do not allow the cord to come in contact with the grinding head/
wheel or other moving parts of the machine. Keep cords away from heat and sharp
edges. Always disconnect the extension cord from the receptacle before disconnecting
the product from the extension cord.
To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections dry and off the ground. Do not
touch the plug with wet hands.
