SAFETY WARNINGS Cordless vacuum cleaner safety warnings WARNING: IMPORTANT! READ CAREFULLY all safety warnings and all instructions BEFORE USE . Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. 1. Before use, make sure that this cleaner must be used by people who have been adequately instructed on the use of this cleaner. 2. Do not use the cleaner without the filter. Replace a damaged filter immediately. 3. Do not attempt to pick up flammable materials, fire works, lighted cigarettes, hot ashes, hot metal chips, sharp materials such as razors, needles, broken glass or the like. 4. NEVER USE THE CLEANER IN THE VICINITY OF GASOLINE, GAS, PAINT, ADHESIVES OR OTHER HIGHLY EXPLOSIVE SUBSTANCES. The switch emits sparks when turned ON and OFF. And so does the motor commutator during operation. A dangerous explosion may result. 5. Never vacuum up toxic, carcinogenic, com bustible or other hazardous materials such as asbestos, arsenic, barium, beryllium, lead, pesticides, or other health endangering materials. 6. Never use the cleaner outdoors in the rain. 7. Do not use close to heat sources (stoves, etc.). 8. Do not block cooling vents. These vents per mit cooling of the motor. Blockage should be carefully avoided otherwise the motor will burn out from lack of ventilation. 9. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. 10. Do not fold, tug or step on the hose. 11. Stop the cleaner immediately if you notice poor performance or anything abnormal during operation. 12. DISCONNECT THE BATTERIES. When not in use, before servicing, and when changing accessories. 13. Clean and service the cleaner immediately after each use to keep it in tiptop operating condition. 14. MAINTAIN THE CLEANER WITH CARE. Keep the cleaner clean for better and safer per formance. Follow instructions for changing accessories. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease. 15. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the cleaner, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to deter mine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, break age of parts, mounting, and any other condi tions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Have defective switches replaced by authorized service cen ter. Don’t use the cleaner if switch does not turn it on and off. 16. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing, use only identical replacement parts. 17. STORE IDLE CLEANER. When not in use, store the cleaner indoors. 18. Be kind to your cleaner. Rough handling can cause breakage of even the most sturdily built cleaner. 19. Do not attempt to clean the exterior or interior with benzine, thinner or cleaning chemicals. Cracks and discoloration may be caused. 20. Do not use cleaner in an enclosed space where flammable, explosive or toxic vapors are given off by oil-base paint, paint-thinner, gasoline, some mothproofing substances, etc., or in areas where flammable dust is present. 21. Do not operate the cleaner while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 22. As a basic rule of safety, use safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields. 23. Use a dust mask in dusty work conditions. 24. This machine is not intended for use by per sons including children with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of expe rience and knowledge. 25. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the cleaner. 26. Never handle batteries and cleaner with wet hands.

27. Use extreme caution when cleaning on stairs. 28. Do not use the cleaner as a stool or work bench. The machine may fall down and may result in personal injury. Battery tool use and care 1. Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack. 2. Use power tools only with specifically desig nated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire. 3. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery termi nals together may cause burns or a fire. 4. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If con tact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns. 5. Do not use a battery pack or tool that is dam aged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behaviour resulting in fire, explosion or risk of injury. 6. Do not expose a battery pack or tool to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or tem perature above 130 °C may cause explosion. 7. Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range specified in the instruc tions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire. Service 1. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained. 2. Follow instruction for lubricating and chang ing accessories. 3. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Important safety instructions for battery cartridge 1. Before using battery cartridge, read all instruc tions and cautionary markings on (1) battery charger, (2) battery, and (3) product using battery. 2. Do not disassemble battery cartridge. 3. If operating time has become excessively shorter, stop operating immediately. It may result in a risk of overheating, possible burns and even an explosion. 4. If electrolyte gets into your eyes, rinse them out with clear water and seek medical atten tion right away. It may result in loss of your eyesight. 5. Do not short the battery cartridge: (1) Do not touch the terminals with any con ductive material. (2) Avoid storing battery cartridge in a con tainer with other metal objects such as nails, coins, etc. (3) Do not expose battery cartridge to water or rain. A battery short can cause a large current flow, overheating, possible burns and even a breakdown. 6. Do not store the tool and battery cartridge in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 50 °C (122 °F). 7. Do not incinerate the battery cartridge even if it is severely damaged or is completely worn out. The battery cartridge can explode in a fire. 8. Be careful not to drop or strike battery. 9. Do not use a damaged battery. 10. The contained lithium-ion batteries are subject to the Dangerous Goods Legislation requirements. For commercial transports e.g. by third parties, forwarding agents, special requirement on pack aging and labeling must be observed. For preparation of the item being shipped, consult ing an expert for hazardous material is required. Please also observe possibly more detailed national regulations. Tape or mask off open contacts and pack up the battery in such a manner that it cannot move around in the packaging. 11. When disposing the battery cartridge, remove it from the tool and dispose of it in a safe place. Follow your local regulations relating to disposal of battery. 12. Use the batteries only with the products specified by Makita. Installing the batteries to non-compliant products may result in a fire, exces sive heat, explosion, or leak of electrolyte. 13. If the tool is not used for a long period of time, the battery must be removed from the tool. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. CAUTION: Only use genuine Makita batteries. Use of non-genuine Makita batteries, or batteries that have been altered, may result in the battery bursting causing fires, personal injury and damage. It will also void the Makita warranty for the Makita tool and charger. Tips for maintaining maximum battery life 1. Charge the battery cartridge before completely discharged. Always stop tool operation and charge the battery cartridge when you notice less tool power. 2. Never recharge a fully charged battery cartridge. Overcharging shortens the battery service life. 3. Charge the battery cartridge with room tempera ture at 10 °C - 40 °C (50 °F - 104 °F). Let a hot battery cartridge cool down before charging it. 4. Charge the battery cartridge if you do not use it for a long period (more than six months).
