General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers
to your mains-operated (corded) power tool
or battery-operated (cordless) power tools
plus compatible chargers and accessories.
POWERhandle refers to an assembly containing
a battery of cells, a trigger mechanism and other
controls. A POWERhandle contains no user
serviceable parts.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) 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. Always fully uncoil
cables to avoid heat buildup.
b) 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.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
FLYING
DEBRIS
increase the risk of electric shock.
d) 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 and
moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of
electric shock.
e) 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. Fully uncoil all cords in use.
f) 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.
3) Personal safety
a) 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.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat,
and/or hearing protection used for appropriate
conditions will reduce personal injuries. Be aware
of dangerous conditions that can occur while
working on certain materials. Take appropriate
measures to reduce risk. For example; Oak
and Beech can give off harmful dust. Use dust
extraction and respiratory protection along with
other safety precautions.
c) 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
SHARP
WEAR
BLADES APPROPRIATE
CLOTHING
finger on the switch or energising power tools that
have the switch on invites accidents.
d) 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.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control of
the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) 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.
g) 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.
4) Power tool use and care
a) 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.
b) 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.
c) 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.
d) 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.
IMPORTANT NOTES 1.0
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) 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.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) 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.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified by
the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for
one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire
when used with another battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any other
battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
c) 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 burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be
ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help.
Liquid ejected from the battery may cause
irritation or burns.
6) Service
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
and approved repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety
of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Circular Saw
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.
Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The
guard cannot protect you from the blade below
the workpiece.
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.
Never hold the workpiece 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.
Hold power tool by the insulated gripping
surfaces, when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may run into hidden
wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will make
exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock
the operator.
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 which match those
specified, never modify a blade or fitting.
Blades that do not match the mounting hardware
of the saw may run eccentrically, causing loss of
control or other damage.
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.
Do not use dull or damaged blades.
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 may
cause binding and kickback.
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.
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, the 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.
2.0 FITTING A POWERhandle

7.0 OPERATION TIPS
• Mark your cut and use the notch at
the front of the Sole Plate to guide the
blade.
• Set the depth of cut so it just clears
the timber. 2-5mm is enough. This will
READ ALL
INSTRUCTIONS help prevent blade binding, help prevent
splintering and improve efficiency.
• Start the saw and allow it to reach full speed before
starting the cut. Maintain a steady, even pressure and
speed that does not slow the rotation speed. Ease off
slightly if the blade slows but continue the cut in one
pass when possible and safe to do so to ensure a clean
cut.
• Use a guide. A rail system is best, a straight edge
clamped to the work piece is a good alternative. Fit the
adjustable rip guide onto the saw to use the edge of the
work piece as a guide. For short rips, a single clamp can
be positioned on the work piece so the edge of the sole
plate runs against it -see the sole plate measurements
at the bottom of this page.
• A smoother finish can be achieved by using a blade
with more teeth.
A blade with less teeth will make a faster, rougher cut
that uses less energy.
• The teeth of the blade can cause cracks and
splintering as they exit whereas the entry side will
have a smoother finish. When cutting a finishing piece
-eg a worktop or skirting board. Face the finished side
downward and run the saw along the back. Scoring
timber can also help prevent splintering.
• Splintering can be reduced when cutting diagonally
across grain by cutting with, rather than against the
grain.
25mm
• Slow down slightly but follow through at the end of a
cut to prevent scuffing the cut with the back of the blade
or leaving snags or chips. Ensure the blade has cleared
the cut before allowing the saw to leave the guide.
• When cutting thick timber or performing compound
or angled cuts it may be necessary to rotate the blade
shield to prevent it stopping the cut as it hooks on the
edge of the work piece. Use the Blade Shield Retractor
to rotate the shield into the saw. As the rear of the blade
enters the work piece, release the Blade Shield so it
rests on the surface of the work and will safely cover the
blade when it exits the cut.
• When doing big jobs that require constant charging
of the batteries remember that you can swap Li-Ion
batteries at any time during a charge/discharge cycle.
A 2.6Ah POWERhandle will be charged to 80% of its full
capacity in the first 30 minutes on the fast charger, the
final 20% capacity charges at a lower current.
• The maximum capacity of a Li-Ion battery drops faster
in warm conditions permanently reducing its working
lifetime. Storing the batteries at a stable temperature
below 20°C (68°F) and above freezing will allow them
to retain a higher capacity throughout their life, avoid
keeping them in hot vehicles or storage areas. This is
different to other types of battery such as NiCD, NiMh
and Pb which last longest in a warmer environment
10ºC - 24ºC (50ºF -75ºF).
• Never store a Li-Ion battery for a long period with a
low charge, maintain 40 to 80% charge in general use
and storage to avoid premature failure. Once every 10
charge cycles it is advised to fully discharge, then fully
charge the battery, this will help maintain maximum
capacity.
