Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, and

your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with
approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are
specially designed to lter out microscopic particles.

Electrical Safety
1. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection should
be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for
the pole chain saw. Receptacles are available having
built-in GFCI protection and may be used for this
measure of safety.
2. To prevent electric shock, use only with an extension cord
suitable for outdoor use, such as SW-A, SOW-A, STW-A,
Before use, check that the extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension cord, make sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. For lengths less than 50 ft (15 m), a No.16 AWG
(or greater) extension cord should be used. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating.
3. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has
a polarized plug (i.e. one blade is wider than the other).
Use this appliance only with a polarized UL-, CSA-, or
ETL-rated extension cord for outdoor, all-weather use.
The appliance plug will t into a polarized extension
cord only one way.
If the appliance plug does not t fully into the extension
cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not t, obtain
a correct polarized extension cord. A polarized extension
cord will require the use of a polarized wall outlet. The
extension cord plug will t into the polarized wall outlet
only one way. If the plug does not t fully into the wall
outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not t,
contact a qualied electrician to install the proper wall
outlet. Do not modify the appliance plug, extension cord
receptacle, or extension cord plug in any way.
4. To prevent the appliance cord from disconnecting from the
extension cord during operation, make a knot with the two
cords as shown in Table 1.
5. Do not abuse the cord. Never pull the pole chain saw
by the cord or yank the cord to disconnect it from the
receptacle. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, and
sharp edges.
Electric shock may cause SEVERE INJURY or
DEATH. Heed these warnings:
• Do not allow any part of the pole chain saw to make
contact with water while it is in operation. If the
appliance becomes wet while turned o, wipe dry
before starting.
• Use only a UL-, CSA-, or ETL-rated extension cord
for outdoor, all-weather use, such as the Snow Joe
+ Sun Joe
Power Joe SJTW-A 14-gauge 50-foot
extension cord with lighted end (Model PJEXT50-B).

• Do not use an extension cord over 100 ft (30 m).
• Do not touch the appliance or its plug with wet hands
or while standing in water. Wearing rubber boots
oers some protection.
