The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
3
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
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.
14. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
15. 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.
16. 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
17. 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.
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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.
21. 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.
22. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
23. 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.
(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.
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 ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of an
GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. 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

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product
(gained from repeated use) replace strict adherence
to circular saw safety rules. If you use this tool
unsafely or incorrectly, you can suffer serious
personal injury.
Danger:
1.
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.
2.
Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The
guard cannot protect you from the blade below the
workpiece. Do not attempt to remove cut material
when blade is moving.
CAUTION: Blades coast after turn off. Wait until
blade stops before grasping cut material.
3.
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.
4.
Never hold piece being cut in your hands or
across your leg. Secure the workpiece to
stable platform. It is important to support the
work properly to minimize body exposure, blade
binding, or loss of control.
9.

support, and supply cord routing (if applicable).
000157
5.
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
5
make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live"
and shock the operator.
When ripping always use a rip fence or
straight edge guide. This improves the accuracy
cut and reduces the chance of blade binding.
Always use blades with correct size and shape
(diamond versus round) of arbour 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 bolt. 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 the result of saw misuse and/or
incorrect operating procedures or conditions and
can be avoided by taking proper precautions as
given below.
•
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.
•
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,
centre the saw blade in the kerf 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.
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.
To minimize the risk of blade pinching and kickback.
When cutting operation requires the resting of the
saw on the workpiece, the saw should be rested on
the larger portion and the smaller piece cut off.
•
•
To avoid kickback, do support
board or panel near the cut.

Do not support board or
panel away from the cut.

cut" into existing walls or other blind areas.
The protruding blade may cut objects that can
cause kickback. For plunge cuts, retract lower
guard using retracting handle.
ALWAYS hold the tool firmly with both
hands. NEVER place your hand or fingers
behind the saw. If kickback occurs, the saw
could easily jump backwards over your hand,
leading to serious personal injury.
Do not use dull or damaged blades.
Unsharpened or improperly set blades
produce narrow kerf causing excessive friction,
blade binding and kickback. Keep blade sharp
and clean. Gum and wood pitch hardened on
blades slows saw and increases potential for
kickback. Keep blade clean by first removing it
from tool, then cleaning it with gum and pitch
remover, hot water or kerosene. Never use
gasoline.
Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking
levers must be tight and secure before
making cut. If blade adjustment shifts while
cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.
Use extra caution when making a "plunge
11.
12.
6
Never force the saw. Forcing the saw can
cause uneven cuts, loss of accuracy, and
possible kickback. Push the saw forward at
a speed so that the blade cuts without slowing.
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
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.
To check lower guard, open lower guard by hand,
then release and watch guard closure. Also check
to see that retracting handle does not touch tool
housing. Leaving blade exposed is VERY
DANGEROUS and can lead to serious personal
injury.
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.
Lower guard should 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.
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. Before setting the tool down after
completing a cut, be sure that the lower guard has
closed and the blade has come to a complete
stop.
Use the appropriate riving knife for the blade
being used. For the riving knife to work, it must
be thicker than the body of the blade but thinner
than the tooth set of the blade.
Adjust the riving knife as described in this
instruction
manual.
Incorrect
spacing,
positioning and alignment can make the riving
knife ineffective in preventing kickback.
Always use the riving knife except when
plunge cutting. Riving knife must be replaced
after plunge cutting. Riving knife causes
interference during plunge cutting and can create
kickback.
For the riving knife to work, it must be
engaged in the workpiece. The riving knife is
ineffective in preventing kickback during short
cuts.
Do not operate the saw if riving knife is bent.
Even a light interference can slow the closing rate
of a guard.
Use extra caution when cutting damp wood,
pressure treated lumber, or wood containing
knots. Adjust speed of cut to maintain smooth
advancement of tool without decrease in blade
speed.
Avoid Cutting Nails. Inspect for and remove all
nails from lumber before cutting.
Place the wider portion of the saw base on that
part of the workpiece which is solidly
supported, not on the section that will fall off
when the cut is made. As examples, Fig. 1
illustrates the RIGHT way to cut off the end of
a board, and Fig. 2 the WRONG way. If the
workpiece is short or small, clamp it down. DO
NOT TRY TO HOLD SHORT PIECES BY HAND!

overheating the motor and dangerous kickback,
possibly causing severe injury.
Hold the tool firmly. The tool is provided with both a front
grip and rear handle. Use both to best grasp the tool. If
both hands are holding saw, they cannot be cut by the
blade. Set the base on the workpiece to be cut without
the blade making any contact. Then turn the tool on and
wait until the blade attains full speed. Now simply move
the tool forward over the workpiece surface, keeping it
flat and advancing smoothly until the sawing is
completed.
To get clean cuts, keep your sawing line straight and
your speed of advance uniform. If the cut fails to properly
follow your intended cut line, do not attempt to turn or
force the tool back to the cut line. Doing so may bind the
blade and lead to dangerous kickback and possible
serious injury. Release switch, wait for blade to stop and
then withdraw tool. Realign tool on new cut line, and
start cut again. Attempt to avoid positioning which
exposes operator to chips and wood dust being ejected
from saw. Use eye protection to help avoid injury.
