General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
Wear ear protection
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
ENG900-1
Vibration
The vibration total value (tri-axial vector sum) determined
according to EN61029:
Save all warnings and
instructions for future reference.
Vibration emission (ah) : 2.5 m/s2 or less
Uncertainty (K) : 1.5 m/s2
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) power tool.
Work area safety
1.
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
2.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools
create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
3.
Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
Electrical safety
4.
Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power
tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
5.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of
electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
ENG901-1
•
•
•
•
The declared vibration emission value has been
measured in accordance with the standard test method
and may be used for comparing one tool with another.
The declared vibration emission value may also be
used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
WARNING:
The vibration emission during actual use of the power
tool can differ from the declared emission value
depending on the ways in which the tool is used.
Be sure to identify safety measures to protect the
operator that 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 when the tool is switched off and when it
is running idle in addition to the trigger time).
ENH003-15

19.
Do not use the power tool if the switch does
not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot
be controlled with the switch is dangerous and
must be repaired.
20. Disconnect the plug from the power source
and/or the battery pack from the power tool
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing power tools. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
21. Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these instructions to
operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
22. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may affect the
power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use. Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
23. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
24. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions,
taking into account the working conditions
and the work to be performed. Use of the power
tool for operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
Service
25. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
26. Follow instruction for lubricating and
changing accessories.
27. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
7.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
8.
When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of
a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
9.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces
the risk of electric shock.
10. Use of power supply via a RCD with a rated
residual current of 30mA or less is always
recommended.
Personal safety
11. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating power tools
may result in serious personal injury.
12. Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions
will reduce personal injuries.
13. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the
switch is in the off-position before connecting
to power source and/or battery pack, picking
up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with
your finger on the switch or energising power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
14. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before
turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.
15. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
16. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery
or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
17. If devices are provided for the connection of
dust extraction and collection facilities,
ensure these are connected and properly used.
Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related
hazards.
Power tool use and care
18. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct
power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.

WARNING:
It is extremely important to always secure the
workpiece correctly with the proper type of vise
or crown molding stoppers. Failure to do so may
result in serious personal injury and cause damage
to the tool and/or the workpiece.
After a cutting operation do not raise the blade
until it has come to a complete stop. The raising
of a coasting blade may result in serious personal
injury and damage to the workpiece.
When cutting a workpiece that is longer than the
support base of the saw, the material should be
supported the entire length beyond the support base
and at the same height to keep the material level.
Proper workpiece support will help avoid blade pinch and
possible kickback which may result in serious personal
injury. Do not rely solely on the vertical vise and/or
horizontal vise to secure the workpiece. Thin material
tends to sag. Support workpiece over its entire length to
avoid blade pinch and possible KICKBACK.

OPERATION
005232
NOTICE:
•
Before use, be sure to release the handle from the
lowered position by pulling the stopper pin.
•
Do not apply excessive pressure on the handle
when cutting. Too much force may result in
overload of the motor and/or decreased cutting
efficiency. Push down handle with only as much
force as is necessary for smooth cutting and
without significant decrease in blade speed.
•
Gently press down the handle to perform the cut. If
the handle is pressed down with force or if lateral
force is applied, the blade will vibrate and leave a
mark (saw mark) in the workpiece and the precision
of the cut will be impaired.
•
During a slide cut, gently push the carriage toward
the guide fence without stopping. If the carriage
movement is stopped during the cut, a mark will be
left in the workpiece and the precision of the cut will
