Handling
• Handle the machine with care, allowing
the machine to do the work.
• Avoid using excessive physical effort on
any of the machine’s controls.
• Consider your security and stability, and
the orientation of the machine during use.
Note: The vibration measurement was made
under standard conditions in accordance with:
BS EN 61029-1:2009
The declared vibration total value has been
measured in accordance with a standard test
method and may be used for comparing one
tool with another.
EN
Work Surface
• Consider the work surface material;
its condition, density, strength,
rigidity and orientation.
The declared vibration total value may also be
used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
VIBRATION
WARNING: When using this machine the operator can be exposed to high levels of
vibration transmitted to the hand and arm. It
is possible that the operator could develop
“Vibration white finger disease” (Raynaud
syndrome). This condition can reduce the
sensitivity of the hand to temperature as well
as producing general numbness. Prolonged
or regular users of this machine should
monitor the condition of their hands and
fingers closely. If any of the symptoms become
evident, seek immediate medical advice.
• The measurement and assessment of
human exposure to hand-transmitted
vibration in the workplace is given in:
BS EN ISO 5349-1:2001 and
BS EN ISO 5349-2:2002
• Many factors can influence the actual
vibration level during operation e.g. the
work surfaces condition and orientation
and the type and condition of the machine
being used. Before each use, such factors
should be assessed, and where possible
appropriate working practices adopted.
Managing these factors can help reduce
the effects of vibration:
WARNING: The vibration emission during actual use of the power tool can differ from the
declared total value depending on the ways
in which the tool is used. The need to identify
safety measures and to protect the operator
are based on an estimation of exposure in the
actual conditions of use (taking account of all
parts of the operating cycle, such as the times
the tool is switched off, when it is running idle,
in addition to trigger time).

HEALTH ADVICE
ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: When using this machine, dust particles may be produced. In some
instances, depending on the materials you
are working with, this dust can be particularly
harmful. If you suspect that paint on the surface
of material you wish to cut contains lead, seek
professional advice. Lead based paints should
only be removed by a professional and you
should not attempt to remove it yourself. Once
the dust has been deposited on surfaces, hand
to mouth contact can result in the ingestion of
lead. Exposure to even low levels of lead can
cause irreversible brain and nervous system
damage. The young and unborn children are
particularly vulnerable.
a) DANGER: Keep hands away from cutting
area and the blade. Keep your second hand
on auxiliary handle, or motor housing. If both
hands are holding the saw, they cannot be cut
by the blade.
b) Do not reach underneath the workpiece.
The guard cannot protect you from the blade
below the workpiece.
c) Adjust the cutting depth to the
thickness of the workpiece. Less than a
full tooth of the blade teeth should be visible
below the workpiece.
d) Never hold piece being cut in your hands
or across your leg. Secure the workpiece to
a stable platform. It is important to support
the work properly to minimize body exposure,
blade binding or loss of control.
e) Hold power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may contact hidden
wiring or its own cord. Contact with a “live”
wire will also make exposed metal parts of the
power tool “live” and shock the operator.
f) When ripping always use a rip fence
or straight edge guide. This improves the
accuracy of cut and reduces the chance of
blade binding.
g) Always use blades with correct size and
shape (diamond versus round) of arbor
holes. Blades that do not match the mounting
hardware of the saw will run eccentrically,
causing loss of control.
h) Never use damaged or incorrect blade
washers or bolt. The blade washers and
bolt were specially designed for your saw, for
optimum performance and safety of operation.
5) General Power Tool
Safety Warnings [Service]
You are advised to consider the risks
associated with the materials you are working
with and to reduce the risk of exposure. As
some materials can produce dust that may be
hazardous to your health, we recommend the
use of an approved face mask with replaceable
filters when using this machine.
You should always:
• Work in a well-ventilated area.
• Work with approved safety equipment,
such as dust masks that are specially
designed to filter microscopic particles.

Causes and operator
prevention of kickback:
Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched,
bound or misaligned saw blade, causing an
uncontrolled saw to lift up and out of the
workpiece toward the operator:
1. When the blade is pinched or bound
tightly, the blade stalls and the motor
reaction drives the unit rapidly back
toward the operator.
2. If the blade becomes twisted or
misaligned in the cut, the teeth at the
back edge of the blade can dig into the top
surface of the workpiece causing the blade
to close in around the material and jump
back towards the operator.
d) Support large panels to minimise the
risk of blade pinching and kickback. Large
panels tend to sag under their own weight.
Supports must be placed under the panel on
both sides, near the line of cut and near the
edge of the panel.
e) Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking
levers must be tight and secure before
making a cut. If the blade adjustment shifts
while cutting it may cause binding and kickback.
f) Do not use dull or damaged blades.
Unsharpened or improperly set blades
produce a narrow cutting groove causing
excessive friction, blade binding and kickback.
g) Use extra caution when making a
“plunge cut” into existing walls or other
blind areas. The protruding blade may cut
objects that can cause kickback.
Kickback is the result of saw misuse and/
or incorrect operating procedures or
conditions and can be avoided by taking
proper precautions as given below.
Further Safety Instructions
a) Maintain a firm grip with both hands
on the saw and position your arms to
resist kickback forces. Position your body
to either side of the blade, but not in line
with the blade. Kickback could cause the
saw to jump backwards, but kickback forces
can be controlled by the operator, if proper
precautions are taken.
b) If the blade is binding, or when
interrupting a cut for any reason, release
the trigger and hold the saw motionless
in the material until the blades come to a
complete stop. Never attempt to remove the
saw from the work or pull the saw backward
while the blades are in motion or kickback may
occur. Investigate and take corrective actions
to eliminate the cause of blade binding.
c) When restarting a saw in the workpiece,
centre the saw blade in the cutting groove
and check that saw teeth are not engaged
into the material. If saw blade is binding, it
may walk up or kickback from the workpiece
as the saw is restarted.
a) Check lower guard for proper closing
before each use. Do not operate the saw if
lower guard does not move freely and close
instantly. Never clamp or tie the lower guard
into the open position. If saw is accidentally
dropped, lower guard may be bent. Raise the
lower guard and make sure it moves freely and
does not touch the blade or any other part, in
all angles and depths of cut.
b) Check the operation of the lower
guard spring. If the guard and the spring
are not operating properly, they must be
serviced before use. Lower guard may operate
sluggishly due to damaged parts, gummy
deposits, or a build-up of debris.
c) Lower guard may be retracted manually
only for special cuts such as “plunge cuts”
and “compound cuts.” Raise lower guard
by retracting handle and as soon as blade
enters the material, the lower guard must be
released. For all other sawing, the lower guard
should operate automatically.
Caution: Unplug the power tool before
making these checks.
12
www.evolutionpowertools.com
d) Always observe that the lower guard
is covering the blade before placing
saw down on a bench or the floor. An
unprotected, coasting blade will cause the
saw to walk backwards, cutting whatever is in
its path. Be aware of the time it takes for the
blade to stop after switch is released.
e) Do not use High Speed Steel (HSS) saw
blades.
f) Inspect the machine and the blade
before each use. Do not use deformed,
cracked, worn or otherwise damaged blades.
g) Never use the saw without the original
guard protection system. Do not lock the
moving guard in the open position. Ensure that
the guard operates freely without jamming.
h) Only use blades that comply with the
specifications in this manual. Before using
accessories, always compare the maximum
allowed RPM of the accessory with the RPM of
the machine.
WARNING: If any parts are missing, do not operate your machine until the missing
parts are replaced. Failure to follow this rule
could result in serious personal injury.

LASER SAFETY
The laser guide line used in this product uses a class 2 laser
with a maximum power output of 1.5mW at a wavelength of
between 635 and 670nm. These lasers do not normally present
an optical hazard, although staring at the beam may cause
temporary flash blindness.
WARNING: Do not stare directly at the laser beam.
The laser must be used and maintained as detailed in this manual.
Never intentionally aim the laser beam at any person and prevent
it from being directed towards the eye, or an object other than the
workpiece. Always ensure that the laser beam is directed at the
workpiece only and never at another person or animal.

ES
Never direct the laser beam onto any bright, shiny, reflective
surface, as the laser beam could be reflected back towards the
operator. Do not change the laser unit for any other type.
Do not tamper with the laser unit. Only touch the unit when
making adjustments. Repairs to the laser shall only be carried
out by an authorised service centre.

CUTTING ADVICE
WARNING: The operator should wear all
relevant PPE (Personal Protection Equipment)
necessary for the job at hand. This could include
safety glasses, dust masks, safety shoes, etc.
The operator should always be aware of the
position and routing of the power cable.
• Do not force the machine.
• Allow the saw blade do the work. Cutting
performance will not be improved by
applying excessive pressure to the machine,
and blade life will be reduced.
• When using the parallel edge guide, ensure
that it is parallel with the blade. The blade
and/or motor could become damaged if the
machine is used with an incorrectly adjusted
parallel edge guide.
• To set the guide, loosen the two retaining
screws, and adjust the guide to the required
position. Tighten the locking screws.
• Place front edge of base plate squarely on
the workpiece before starting the motor.
• When starting a cut, align the cutting line
with the line of cut guide, taking care to
introduce the blade to the material slowly,
so as not to damage its teeth.
• Use both hands to move the saw forward
through the workpiece.
• Apply smooth, constant pressure to move
the saw forward through the workpiece.
When a cut has been completed, release the
ON/OFF trigger switch and allow the blade to
come to a complete halt. Do not apply lateral
pressure to the blade in an attempt to slow it
down more quickly.
WARNING: If the motor should stop or stall
whilst a cut is being attempted, release the
trigger switch immediately and disconnect
the machine from the power supply. Remove
the machine from the workpiece before
investigating the cause and attempting to
restart the motor.
Note: This saw is fitted with an overload
protection device. This is designed to prevent
overloading and consequent damage to the
motor. If this feature ‘trips’, the motor stops and
will not operate.
Allow the machine to cool down and then press
the ‘reset switch’ at the base of the main handle.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Any maintenance must be carried out
with the machine switched off and disconnected
from the mains/battery power supply.
Check that all safety features and guards are
operating correctly on a regular basis.
Only use this machine if all guards/safety
features are fully operational.
All motor bearings in this machine are lubricated
for life. No further lubrication is required.
Use a clean, slightly damp cloth to clean
the plastic parts of the machine. Do not use
solvents or similar products which could
damage the plastic parts.
WARNING: Do not attempt to clean by
inserting pointed objects through openings in
the machine’s casings, etc.
The machines air vents should be cleaned
using compressed dry air.
Excessive sparking may indicate the presence of
dirt in the motor or worn out carbon brushes.

BRUSH CHECKING AND/OR REPLACEMENT
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
• Disconnect the machine from the power
supply.
• Place the machine on a level, secure surface.
• Unscrew and remove the two (2) brush
retaining caps from the motor housing.
• Withdraw the brushes.
Waste electrical products should not be
disposed of with household waste. Please
recycle where facilities exist. Check with your
local authority or retailer for recycling advice.
EN
Note: If the carbon brush is less than ¼” long,
or if there are signs of burning or damage to
the carbon or the spring, replace the brushes.
• Fit the new brushes.
• Refit the brush retaining caps
• Run the machine without load for several
minutes after brush replacement. This will
aid the ‘bedding in’ process.
Note: If, upon checking, the brushes are found
to be still serviceable, they can be returned to
their original position. It is important that they
are replaced in the same position as they were
removed from the machine.
