Work Area
■
■
■
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accident.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools may create
sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.

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, clothing,
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, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
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 ii is designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on and off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect battery pack from tool 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 the 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 clean. 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.
Service
■
■
Tool service must be performed by a qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement 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.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES AND/OR SYMBOLS
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
Additional Rules For Safe Operation
■
■
■
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.
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use
one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least
16 is recommended for an extension cord 100 feet
or less in length. A cord exceeding 100 feet is not
recommended. If in doubt, use the next heavier
gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier
the cord. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.

If after one hour red light is still flashing, this indicates
a defective battery pack and should be replaced.
Green light on indicates battery pack is fully charged
and slow charging to maintain battery pack.
Yellow light on and red light flashing indicates defective
battery pack. Return battery pack to your nearest
Sears Repair Center for checking or replacing.
When your battery pack becomes fully charged, the
red light will turn OFF and the green light will turn ON.
After normal usage, 1 hour of charging time is required
to be fully charged. A minimum charge time of 1-1/2
hours is required to recharge a completely discharged
battery pack.
The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
Do not place charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
When the batteries become fully charged, unplug your
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING
HOT BATTERIES
Under extreme continuous use, the batteries in your
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery
pack cool down for approximately 1 hour before attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes discharged and is hot, this will cause the red light on your
battery charger to flash. When battery pack cools down,
red light will glow continuously indicating fast charging
mode, 1 hour charge time. Once the battery pack cools
down, it will recharge battery pack in fast charging mode
as normal.
Note: This situation only occurs when extreme continuous
use of your saw causes the batteries to become hot. It
does not occur under normal circumstances. Refer to
"CHARGING BATTERY PACK" for normal recharging of
batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest Sears repair center for
electrical check.
Fig. 8
■ Red light should turn on. Red light indicates fast
charging mode.
If red light is flashing, this indicates battery pack is
deeply discharged or hot.
If battery pack is hot, red light should become steady
after battery pack has cooled down.
If battery pack is deeply discharged, red light should
become steady after voltage has increased, normally
within 60 minutes.

the use of the blade teeth at different positions on the
blade.
See Figure 10.
TO CHANGE POSITIONS OF BASE ASSEMBLY:
■
Remove battery pack. See Figure 3.
WARNING: Failure to remove battery pack from saw
could result in accidental starting causing possible
serious personal injury.
■
■
■
■

METAL CUTTING
See Figure 11.
See Figure 12.
Fig. 12
Fig. 11
Metals such as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods, aluminum,
brass, and copper may be cut with your saw. Be careful
not to twist or bend the saw blade. Do not force. We
recommend cutting oil when cutting most soft metals and
steel. Cutting oil will also keep blades cool, increase
cutting action, and prolong blade life.
Never use gasoline since normal sparking of motor could
ignite fumes. Clamp the work firmly and cut close to the
clamping point to eliminate any vibration of the work being
cut. When cutting conduit pipe or angle iron, clamp work
in a vise if possible and cut close to the vise. To cut thin
sheet material, "sandwich" the material between
hardboard or plywood and clamp the layers to eliminate
vibration and material tearing.
Mark the line of cut clearly. Choose a convenient starting
point inside the area to be cut out and place the tip of the
blade over that point. Rest front edge of base assembly
on work and hold firmly in position. Depress the lock-off
button, then pull switch trigger to start the cutting action.
WARNING: Make sure blade does not touch work
until motor reaches full speed, since this could cause
loss of control resulting in serious injury.
With saw blade at full cutting speed, slowly tilt saw downward
until tip of blade starts cutting work. After blade penetrates
work, tilt saw until blade is perpendicular to the work.

To obtain the best performance from your saw it is important to select a specific blade for the particular application and
type of material you wish to cut. By doing this you will get a smoother faster cut and prolong blade life. Replacement
blades for this saw are available from your nearest Sears Retail Store.
WARNING:
The operation of any power tool can result in foreign objects being thrown into your eyes, which
can result in severe eye damage. Before beginning power tool operation, always wear safety
goggles or safety glasses with side shields and a full face shield when needed. We recommend
Wide Vision Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or standard safety glasses with side shields,
available at Sears Retail Stores.
