PERSONAL
SAFETY
[] Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal
injury.
[] Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, cJothing,
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
[] Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on
invites accidents.
[] Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning
the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
[] Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
[] Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
[] Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
[] Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
TOOL USE AND CARE
[] Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
[] Do not force tool Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
[] Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
[] Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before making
any adjustments,
changing accessories,
or storing
the tool Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the tool accidentally.
[] Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
[] When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects like: paper clips, coins, keys,
nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can
make a connection from one terminal to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause
sparks, burns, or a fire.
[] Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and dean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
[] Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that
may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained tools.
[] Use only accessories that are recommended
by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when
used on another tool.
[] Keepthe tool and its handle
dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
[] When servicing a tool, use only identical replacemerit parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance
section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or
failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a
risk of shock or injury.
SERVICE
[] Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
[] DANGER! Keep hands away from cutting area and
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.
[] NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands or
across your leg. It is important to support the work
properly to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or
loss of control.
[] Keep your body positioned to either side of the saw
blade, but not in line with the saw blade. KICKBACK
could cause the saw to jump backwards. (see KICKBACK)
[] Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and
shock the operator.
[] Do not reach underneath the work. The guard cannot protect you from the blade below the work.
[] Check the lower guard for proper closing before
each use. Do not operate 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 with the retracting handle and make
sure it moves freely and does not touch the blade or
any other part, in all angles and depths of cut.
[] Check the operation and condition 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 buildup of debris.
[] Lower guard should be retracted manually only
for special cuts such as "Pocket Cuts" and "Compound Cuts". Raise lower guard by Retracting
Handle. As soon as blade enters the material, lower
guard must be released. For all other sawing, the
lower guard should operate automatically.
[] Always observe that the lower guard is covering the
blade before placing saw down on bench or 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.
[] When ripping always use a rip fence or straight
edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance of blade binding.
[] Always use blades with correct size and shape
(diamond vs. round} arbor holes. Blades that do not
match the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentrically, causing loss of control.
[] Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers
or bolts. The blade washers and bolt were specially
designed for your saw, for optimum performance and
safety of operation.
[] 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.
When the blade is pinched or bound tightly by the kerf
closing down, the blade stalls and the motor reaction
drives the unit rapidly back toward the operator.
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 wood causing the blade to climb out
of the kerf and jump back toward the operator.
Kickback is a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided
by taking proper precautions as given below:
[]
Maintain a firm grip on the saw and position your
body and arm in a way that allows you to resist
KICKBACK forces. KICKBACK forces can be controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are taken.
[] When blade is binding, or when interrupting a cut
for any reason, release the trigger and hold the saw
motionless in the material until the blade comes to
a complete stop. Never attempt to remove the saw
from the work or pull the saw backward while the
blade is in motion or KICKBACK may occur. Investigate and take corrective actions to eliminate the cause
of blade binding.
[] When restarting a saw in the workpiece, center the
saw blade in the kerr and check that 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.
[] Support large panels to minimize 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.
[] Do not use dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened or
improperly set blades produce narrow kerf causing
excessive friction, blade binding, and KICKBACK.
[] Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers
must be tight and secure before making cut. If blade
adjustment shifts while cutting, it will cause binding
and KICKBACK.
[] Use extra caution when making a "Pocket Cut" into
existing wails or other blind areas. The protruding
blade may cut objects that can cause KICKBACK.
[] Know your power tool. Read operator's manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious injury.
[] Always wear safety glasses with side shields.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses.
They are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of eye injury.
[] Battery tools do not have to be plugged into an
electrical outlet; therefore, they are always in
operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards
when not using your battery tool or when changing
accessories.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
[] Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
[] Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do
not use a battery pack or charger that has been
dropped or received a sharp blow. A damaged
battery is subject to explosion. Properly dispose of a
dropped or damaged battery immediately.
[] Batteries can explode in the presence of a source
of ignition, such as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of
serious personal injury, never use any cordless product
in the presence of open flame. An exploded battery
can propel debris and chemicals. If exposed, flush with
water immediately.
[] Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock.
[] For best results, your battery tool should be
charged in a location where the temperature is
more than 50°F but less than 100°F. Do not store
outside or in vehicles.
[] Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, battery leakage may occur, if liquid comes
in contact with your skin, wash immediately with
soap and water, then neutralize with lemon juice
or vinegar, if liquid gets into your eyes, flush them
with clean water for at least 10 minutes, then seek
immediate medical attention. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
[] Save these instructions.
Refer to them frequently and
use them to instruct others who may use this tool. If
you loan someone this tool, loan them these instructions also to prevent misuse of the product and possible injury.

blade guard does not cover blade on the underside
of work. Since blade is exposed on underside of
work, keep hands and fingers away from cutting
area. Any part of your body coming in contact with
moving blade will result in serious injury.
_1_ CAUTION:
Never use saw when guard is not
operating correctly. Check the guard for correct
operation before each use. The guard is operating
correctly when it moves freely and readily returns to
the closed position. If you drop the saw, check the
lower blade guard and bumper for damage at all
depth settings before reuse.

ASSEMBLY
A width of cut scale has been provided on the base of
the saw. When making straight cross cuts or rip cuts, the
scale can be used to measure up to four inches to the
right side of the blade. It can be used to measure up to
one inch to the left side of the blade.

below the material being cut. More blade depth will
increase the chance of kickback and cause the cut to be
rough. For more depth of cut accuracy, a scale is located
on the upper blade guard.
