Users should verify the electrical test label at the time of purchasing new one. They should know all applications, limitations and potential hazards of power tools. Power tools must be operated as per the instructions of manufacturer. They should timely inspect tool for loose or broken switches and other problems.
With the advent of these higher voltage batteries we now have a wider range of battery powered cordless tools. The cordless circular saw was not viable before the 18v or possibly the 24v batteries became available. The SDS drill and demolition drill had always been corded until the latest range of batteries mean there are now SDS and demolition cordless drills on the market operated on 36v power packs.
If you can think back to using an old hand saw or manual tool, you can remember how hard it was cutting materials. Not only was it difficult to cut the material, but cutting an item in a straight line was virtually impossible.
Before using any power tool, wear safety goggles or safety glasses with shields which have been approved nationally. If there are many wood chips or dusty conditions, make sure you wear a dust mask. If you are working in a noisy environment, wear ear protection such as ear plugs. Those using power tools should refrain from wearing loose clothing or any dangling jewelry that can catch on the tool. Make sure your hair is tied back and does not interfere with the power tools.
In addition to price tag, over the top operational expenses, for instance, essentials and accessories should also be taken into consideration. Depending on the brand of power tool, these essentials might be sandpaper, belts, blades, bits and other miscellaneous items. Hence, cost of these add-ons should also be monitored, before finalising upon a power tool. Take note that cost of these accessories; vary from one tool manufacturer to another.
