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.
SKU 65298
Safety equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal
injuries.
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 finger on
the switch or energizing 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

proved for the specific hazards in the
work area.
4.
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.
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. 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.

a.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.
Reciprocating Saw Safety
Warnings
1.
Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an
operation where cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Contact with a ″live″ wire will
make exposed metal parts of the tool
″live″ and shock the operator.
2.
Use clamps or another practical
way to secure and support the
work piece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against
your body leaves it unstable and may
lead to loss of control.
3.
Do not cut material that is thicker
than the Saw Blade is long.
4.
Maintain labels and nameplates on
the tool. These carry important safety
information. If unreadable or missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools for a
replacement.
5.

10. People with pacemakers should
consult their physician(s) before use.
Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to heart pacemaker could cause
pacemaker interference or pacemaker failure. In addition, people with
pacemakers should:
• Avoid operating alone.
• Do not use with Trigger locked on.
• Properly maintain and inspect to
avoid electrical shock.
• Any power cord must be properly
grounded. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) should also be implemented – it prevents sustained electrical shock.
11. Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and
other construction activities, contains
chemicals known [to the State of California] to cause cancer, birth defects
or other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement or other masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber
SKU 65298
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do
this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals: work in
a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as
those dust masks that are specially
designed to filter out microscopic
particles. (California Health & Safety
Code § 25249.5, et seq.)
12. WARNING: Handling the cord on
this product will expose you to lead,
a chemical known to the State of
California to cause cancer, and birth
defects or other reproductive harm.
Wash hands after handling. (California Health & Safety Code § 25249.5,
et seq.)
13. The warnings, precautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction
manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur.
It must be understood by the operator
that common sense and caution are
factors which cannot be built into this
product, but must be supplied by the
operator.
Vibration Safety
This tool vibrates during use. Repeated or long-term exposure to
vibration may cause temporary or
permanent physical injury, particularly
to the hands, arms and shoulders. To
reduce the risk of vibration-related
injury:
1.
Anyone using vibrating tools regularly or for an extended period should
first be examined by a doctor and
then have regular medical checkups to ensure medical problems are
not being caused or worsened from

of vibration-related injury.
3.
Wear suitable gloves to reduce the
vibration effects on the user.
4.
Use tools with the lowest vibration
when there is a choice between different processes.
5.
Include vibration-free periods each
day of work.
6.
Grip tool as lightly as possible (while
still keeping safe control of it). Let
the tool do the work.
7.
To reduce vibration, maintain the tool
as explained in this manual. If any
abnormal vibration occurs, stop use
immediately.
Grounding
To prevent
electric shock
and death from
incorrect grounding
wire connection:
Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not
modify the power cord plug
provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong
from the plug. Do not use the
tool if the power cord or plug
is damaged. If damaged, have
it repaired by a service facility

Grounded tools require a three wire
extension cord. Double Insulated
tools can use either a two or three
wire extension cord.
As the distance from the supply outlet
increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized
wire causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Table A.)
The smaller the gauge number of the
wire, the greater the capacity of the
cord. For example, a 14 gauge cord
can carry a higher current than a 16
gauge cord. (See Table A.)

When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length,
make sure each cord contains at
least the minimum wire size required.
(See Table A.)
If you are using one extension cord
for more than one tool, add the
nameplate amperes and use the sum
to determine the required minimum
cord size. (See Table A.)
If you are using an extension cord
outdoors, make sure it is marked with
the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to
indicate it is acceptable for outdoor
use.

LIMITED 90 DAY WARRANTY
Harbor Freight Tools Co. makes every effort to assure that its products meet high
quality and durability standards, and warrants to the original purchaser that this product is free from defects in materials and workmanship for the period of 90 days from
the date of purchase. This warranty does not apply to damage due directly or indirectly,
to misuse, abuse, negligence or accidents, repairs or alterations outside our facilities,
criminal activity, improper installation, normal wear and tear, or to lack of maintenance.
We shall in no event be liable for death, injuries to persons or property, or for incidental,
contingent, special or consequential damages arising from the use of our product. Some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so
the above limitation of exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty is expressly in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including the
warranties of merchantability and fitness.
To take advantage of this warranty, the product or part must be returned to us with
transportation charges prepaid. Proof of purchase date and an explanation of the complaint must accompany the merchandise. If our inspection verifies the defect, we will either repair or replace the product at our election or we may elect to refund the purchase
price if we cannot readily and quickly provide you with a replacement. We will return repaired products at our expense, but if we determine there is no defect, or that the defect
resulted from causes not within the scope of our warranty, then you must bear the cost
of returning the product.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from state to state.
