Daily Visual Inspection

Regular visual inspections should be carried out following use. These inspections are designed to eliminate minor issues, detect and prevent major faults and save the expense of major repairs by identifying any concerns early. The arms and body of the tools should be checked for any visible signs of wear or damage and the condition of bearing bolts and securing rings should be inspected.  Cutting blades and tips should be clean and sharp and checked for signs of serration and there should be no oil leakage on the cylinder body or control valve. Protective covers and body housings should be intact, with no signs of cracking or oil leakage. Tools should be cleaned and dried, cleared of any debris or foreign bodies, prior to stowage.

Maintenance after use in water

Batteries should be removed after use and rinsed with fresh, clean water.  The device should be fully submerged in clean water to fill the housing unit and flushed to clear any algae mud or sludge.  Both the tool and battery should be wiped down with a damp, lint and dust-free cloth to remove any dirt and deposits.  The device andbattery can then  be  left to dry at room temperature in a well ventilated area before lubricating all exposed steel parts with a suitable anti-corrosion agent.

Following visual inspection and maintenance, a routine function test should be performed.
