Improperly connecting the grounding wire can result in the risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided wih the tool. Never remove the grounding prong from the plug. Do not use the tool if the cord or plug is damaged. If damaged, return the tool immediately to your rental dealer for repair by properly trained technician. If the plug will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Tools with Three-Prong Plugs
Tools marked "Grounding Required" have a three-wire cord and three-prong grounding plug. The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet (See Figure A). If the tool should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away from the user, reducing the risk of electric shock.
The grounding prong in the plug is connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system in the tool. The green wire in the cord must be the only wire connected to the tool's grounding system and must never be attached to an electrically "live" terminal.
Your tool must be plugged into an appropriate outlet, properly installed and grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. The plug and outlet should look like those in Figure A.
Double Insulated Tools:
Tools with Two Prong Plugs
Tools marked "Double Insulated" do not require grounding. They have a special double insulation system which satisfies OSHA requirements and complies with the applicable standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian Standard Association and the National Electrical Code. Double Insulated tools may be used in either of the 120 volt out lets shown in Figures B and C.
