Dust/chip extraction

The dust from materials such as lead paint, some types of wood, minerals and metal can be harmful to human health. Touching or breathing in this dust can trigger allergic reactions and/or cause respiratory illnesses in the user or in people in the near vicinity.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are classified as carcinogenic, especially in conjunction with wood treatment additives (chromate, wood preservative). Materials containing asbestos may only be machined by specialists.

The regulations on the material being machined that apply in the country of use must be observed.

Self-generated dust extraction with dust box (see figures A1–A4)

Slide the dust box (7) onto the extraction outlet (14).

You can easily check the filling level of the dust box (7) through the transparent container.

To empty the dust box (7), rotate slightly and pull it back.

Unscrew the filter element (6) from the dust box (7). Empty the dust box.

Gently tap the filter element (6) against a solid surface to loosen the dust. Use a soft brush to clean the flaps of the filter element (6).

Note: In order to ensure optimum dust extraction, empty the dust box (7) in good time and clean the filter element (6) regularly.

When working on vertical surfaces, hold the power tool with the dust box (7) facing downwards.

External dust extraction (see figure B)

Insert the dust extraction adapter (16) (accessory) into an extraction hose (15) (accessory) until you hear it click into place. Connect the dust extraction adapter (16) to the extraction outlet (14) on the power tool and the extraction hose (15) to a vacuum cleaner (accessory).

You will find an overview of connecting to various dust extractors at the end of these operating instructions.

The dust extractor must be suitable for the material being worked.

When extracting dry dust that is especially detrimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special dust extractor.
