Product Safety Reminders
The convenience and variety of uses of Cordless Power Tools can subject them, and you, to applications that may be hazardous. It is well known that any electrical device must not be located or used in low-lying areas in an automotive environment as sparks from switches or motors etc. can ignite or explode gaseous vapors that may have collected in these areas.
Similarly, Cordless Tools should not be used near liquid gasoline or in an environment where explosive gas vapors are present. Explosive gas vapors are likely in the presence of any flammable liquid such as open gasoline containers, fuel tanks, fuel filters or accidental gasoline spillage of any kind.
Be safe, avoid fire. DO NOT USE CORDLESS TOOLS IN THE PRESENCE OF FLAMMABLE VAPORS.
