To avoid electrical hazards, fire hazards or damage to the tool, use proper circuit protection.
This tool is wired at the factory for 110-120 Volt operation, it must be connected to a 110-120 Volt / 15 Ampere
time delay fuse or circuit breaker. To avoid shock or fire, replace power cord immediately if it is worn, cut or
damaged in any way.
Before using your tool, it is critical that you read and understand these safety rules. Failure to follow these
rules could result in serious injury to you or damage to the tool.
GENERAL SAFETY iNSTRUCTiONS
Read and understand all the instructions below before using the power tool. These safety instructions are not
meant to cover every possible condition that could occur. As with any power tool, common sense, vigilance
and due care must be used.
READ and become familiar with this entire
Operator's Manual. LEARN the tool's applications,
limitations and possible hazards.

5.
DO NOT use power tools in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases.
6.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and

USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not force the tool or
attachment to do a job for which it is not designed.
10. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. DO NOT wear loose
clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other
jewelry that may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
11. WEAR A FACE MASK OR DUST MASK. Sawing,
cutting and sanding operations produce dust.

be cut under saw to allow sawdust to fall through.
Failure to cut this hole will allow sawdust to build up
in the motor area, resulting in a fire hazard and
potential motor damage.
GROUNDING
iNSTRUCTiONS
tN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION OR
BREAKDOWN, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric currents and reduces the risk of
electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electrical
cord that has an equipment-grounding conductor
and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into a matching receptacle that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. If it will not
fit the receptacle, have the proper receptacle installed
by a qualified electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with the green insulation (with or without
yellow stripes) is the equipment grounding conductor.
tf repair or replacement of the electrical cord or plug is
necessary, do not connect the equipment grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
CHECK with a qualified electrician or service person
if you do not completely understand the grounding
instructions, or if you are not certain the tool is properly
grounded.
or a #14 wire with a 15 A time-lag fuse. NOTE: When
using an extension cord on a circuit with a #14 wire, the
extension cord must not exceed 25 feet in length. Before
connecting the motor to the power line, make sure the
switch is in the off position and the electric current is
rated the same as the current stamped on the motor
nameplate. Running at a lower voltage will damage the
motor. This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has
a receptacle like the one illustrated in Fig. 1.
Fig. 1 shows a three-pronged electrical plug and
receptacle that has a grounding conductor. If a properly
grounded receptacle is not available, an adapter (Fig. 2)
can be used to temporarily connect this plug to a twocontact grounded receptacle. The adapter (Fig. 2) has a
rigid lug extending from it that MUST be connected to a
permanent earth ground, such as a properly grounded
receptacle box.
CAUTION
In all cases, make certain the receptacle is properly
grounded, if you are not sure, have a qualified
electrician check the receptacle.
CAUTION
This tool is for indoor use only. Do not expose to
rain or use in damp locations.
Fig. 1
ged Plug
USE only three-wire extension cords that have threepronged grounding plugs with three-pole receptacles
that accept the tool's plug. Repair or replace damaged
or worn cords immediately.
GUiDELiNES
FOR EXTENSION
g Prong
Properly Grounded
Three-Pronged Receptacle
CORDS
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure
your extension cord is in good condition. Use an
extension cord heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop
in line voltage resulting in loss of power,
overheating and burning out of the motor. The table on
the right shows the correct size to use depending on
cord length and nameplate ampere rating, tf in doubt,
use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge
number, the heavier the cord.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in
good condition. Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified technician before
using it. Protect your extension cords from sharp
objects, excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tool. This circuit
must not be less than #12 wire with a 20 A time-lag fuse
