Some of the more common motorized tools in use today can be bought as either cordless (battery equipped) or corded. With cordless models, a tool’s ability and strength are often determined by its battery size.

You should also check for all the available accessories and attachments available for the equipment that you have selected and how easily they can be fixed to the tool. This will give a wide range or versatility of the different jobs the tool will be able to do. The job specification is also an important consideration as it determines the optimal range specifications of the tool to be selected. The room for movement at the work site is also an important deliberation as it guides you on whether to get a wired or a cordless power tool.
Never use bent, broken, or warped blades or cutters. In addition, the work area should be well lit and clean. Instruction manuals must be followed when lubricating power tools and changing tool accessories. Strong footing and good balance should be maintained when using power tools, and non-slip footwear is recommended. Avoid loose clothing, ties, jewelry, or anything else that could potentially become caught in a power equipment moving parts. Long hair must be tied back. Individuals who use power tools are exposed to the inherent dangers of falling, flying, abrasive, and splashing objects, or to harmful dusts, fumes, mists, vapors or gases. Therefore, safety glasses or goggles with side shields must be worn to protect the eyes against these flying particles. Use a dust mask for dusty operations and hearing protection if you will be using the tool for an extended period of time. Power equipments should be stored when not in use so as to not cause accidental injury. Be sure to dispose of damaged power tools, or clearly label them as damaged.
Unplug the tool before changing bits, accessories or attachments. Remember to check what is behind something for possible electrical wiring or pipes in your path. If you see wires, then you should disconnect them and the power source. Avoid water pipes and always hold the tool by the insulated grasping surfaces.
