a) easily moved by one person, simple devices to facilitate transportation may be incorporated, e.g. handles, wheels and the like;

b) used in a safe stationary position with or without fixing, e.g. fast clamping devices, bolting and the like;

c) used under the control of an operator;

d) not intended for continuous production or production line use;

e) intended to be connected to electric supply by a flexible cord and a plug;

f) maximum rated voltage not exceeding 250 V single-phase, a.c. or d.c., or 440 V three-phase, a.c.;

g) maximum rated input not exceeding 2500 W, for single-phase a.c. or d.c., and 4000 W for three-phase a.c.

These tools are commonly known as "transportable motor-operated electric tools", hereinafter referred to, in the text, as tools.
