It says what it says for one reason...liability
You guys ever read any of those OH&S and similar reports after someone gets hurt or killed? You wouldn't belive the stupid **** they go after manufacturers over, I have even read where they want safety shields made so they are more difficult to remove or integral so they are necessary for operation of the machine...everything is always someone else's fault so they need to cover their ass in every conceivable way possible including posting absolutely obvious things as well. I agree who ever wrote most of that has never run the auger, they have a law degree instead
Contracts are made to be broken, a handshake is the law of God.
