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 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 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.
Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from
oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning.
Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
n 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.
n Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair
personnel. Service or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n 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.
n Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
n Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the
presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot light.

shock.
n 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.
n 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.
ADDITIONAL RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
n 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

DRILLING
See Figure 11.
A convenient feature provided with your drill is a level. It
is recessed in the motor housing on top and end of your
drill. It can be used to keep drill bit level during drilling
operations.
See Figure 12.
When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center punch
to mark desired hole location. This will prevent the drill bit
from slipping off center as the hole is started. However,
the low speed feature allows starting holes without center
punching if desired. To accomplish this, simply operate
your drill at a low speed until the hole is started.
The material to be drilled should be secured in a vise
or with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill bit
rotates.Hold tool firmly and place the bit at the point to be
drilled. Depress the switch trigger to start tool.
Move the drill bit into the workpiece applying only enough
pressure to keep the bit cutting. Do not force or apply side
pressure to elongate a hole.

WARNING: Be prepared for binding or bit
breakthrough. When these situations occur, drill has
a tendency to grab and kick opposite to the direction
of rotation and could cause loss of control when
breaking through material. If not prepared, this loss of
control can result in possible serious injury.
®
When drilling metals, use a light oil on the drill bit to keep
it from overheating. The oil will prolong the life of the bit
and increase the drilling action.
If the bit jams in workpiece or if the drill stalls, release
switch trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the
workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.

INTRODUCTION
This tool has many features for making its use more pleasant and enjoyable. Safety, performance, and dependability
have been given top priority in the design of this product making it easy to maintain and operate.
2
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
n Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
n Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
n Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
n Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL IN-
STRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed
below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
n Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
n 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.
n Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
TOOL USE AND CARE
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Keep the 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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
n A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
n Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
n Use battery only with charger listed.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
n 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.
n Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
�n 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.
n 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)
n Do not reach underneath the work. The guard cannot protect you from the blade below the work.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n When ripping always use a rip fence or straight
edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance of blade binding.
n 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.
n 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:
n
n
n
n
4
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 kerf 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.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock.
n 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.
n 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.
n Do not use dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened or
improperly set blades produce narrow kerf causing
excessive friction, blade binding, and KICKBACK.
n 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.
n Use extra caution when making a “Pocket Cut” into
existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding
blade may cut objects that can cause KICKBACK.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
n Never use a battery 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.
n Batteries vent hydrogen gas and 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.
Laser Guide Warnings:
The laser guide radiation used in the Craftsman trim saw is
Class IIIa with maximum <5 mW and 650nm wavelengths.
These lasers do not normally present an optical hazard
although staring at the beam may cause flash blindness.
n Avoid direct eye exposure when using the laser guide.
n The laser shall be used and maintained in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions.
n Never aim the beam at a person or object other than the
workpiece.
n Always ensure the laser beam is aimed at a sturdy
workpiece without reflective surfaces. Shiny reflective
sheet metal or similar shiny materials are not suitable for
laser use.
n All repairs should be made by an authorized service
representative or the laser manufacturer.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low
charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore,
you should charge it until the green LED on the front of the
charger comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time
they are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed
by recharging) for them to become fully charged.
13
OPERATION
CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
NOTE: This situation only occurs when continuous use of
the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to “CHARGING A COOL 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.
When using the tool continuously, the batteries in the
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before
attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes
discharged and is hot, this will cause the green LED to
come on instead of the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert
the battery pack in the charger. If the green LED continues
to remain on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for checking or replacing.

OPERATION
KICKBACK
See Figures 8 - 11.
Kickback occurs when the blade stalls rapidly and the saw
is driven back towards you. Blade stalling is caused by any
action which pinches the blade in the wood.
DANGER: Release switch immediately if blade

binds or saw stalls. Kickback could cause you to
lose control of the saw. Loss of control can lead to
serious injury.

To guard against kickback, avoid dangerous practices
such as the following.
n Setting blade depth incorrectly.
n Sawing into knots or nails in workpiece.
n Twisting the blade while making a cut.
n Making a cut with a dull, gummed up, or improperly set
blade.
n Supporting the workpiece incorrectly.
n Forcing a cut.
n Cutting warped or wet lumber.
n Operating the tool incorrectly or misusing the tool.
To lessen the chance of kickback, follow these safety
practices.
n Keep the blade at the correct depth setting. The depth
setting should not exceed 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) below the
material being cut.
n Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails before cutting.
Never saw into a knot or nail.
n Make straight cuts. Always use a straight edge guide
when rip cutting. This helps prevent twisting the blade.
n Use clean, sharp, and properly set blades. Never make
cuts with dull blades.
n Support the workpiece properly before beginning a cut.
n Use steady, even pressure when making a cut. Never
force a cut.
n Do not cut warped or wet lumber.
n Hold the saw firmly with both hands and keep your body
in a balanced position so as to resist the forces if kickback
should occur.

OPERATION
SAW BLADES
STARTING/STOPPING THE SAW
The best of saw blades will not cut efficiently if they are
not kept clean, sharp, and properly set. Using a dull blade
will place a heavy load on the saw and increase the danger of kickback. Keep extra blades on hand, so that sharp
blades are always available.
Gum and wood pitch hardened on blades will slow the
saw down. Remove saw blade from the saw and use gum
and pitch remover, hot water, or kerosene to remove these
accumulations. DO NOT USE GASOLINE.
See Figure 13.
To start the saw: Depress the switch trigger.
Always let the blade reach full speed, then guide the saw
into the workpiece.
WARNING: The blade coming in contact with the
workpiece before it reaches full speed could cause
the saw to “kickback” towards you resulting in serious injury.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
To stop the saw: Release the switch trigger.
After you release the switch trigger, allow the blade to
come to a complete stop. Do not remove the saw from
the workpiece while the blade is moving.
See Figure 12.
The lower blade guard attached to your trim saw is there
for your protection and safety. Do not alter it for any reason. If it becomes damaged, do not operate the saw until
you have the guard repaired or replaced. Always leave
guard in operating position when using the saw.
DANGER: When sawing through work, lower
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.
SWITCH
TRIGGER
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.

may create a hazard or cause product damage.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields during power tool operation or when blowing dust. If operation is dusty,
also wear a dust mask.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use. Use
clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.
CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments or
performance other than those specified herein may
result in hazardous radiation exposure.
WARNING: Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc., come in contact with plastic parts. Chemicals can damage, weaken or destroy plastic which
may result in serious personal injury.
Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to accelerated wear
and possible premature failure because the fiberglass chips
and grindings are highly abrasive to bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, we do not recommended using
this tool for extended work on these types of materials. However, if you do work with any of these materials, it is extremely
important to clean the tool using compressed air.
LUBRICATION
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient
amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit under
normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further lubrication
is required.

INTRODUCTION
This tool has many features for making its use more pleasant and enjoyable. Safety, performance, and dependability
have been given top priority in the design of this product making it easy to maintain and operate.
2
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL
n Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
n Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
n Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
n Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
n Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
n 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.
n Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
TOOL USE AND CARE
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Keep the 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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
n A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
n Use battery operated tool only with specifically
designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries
may create a risk of fire.
n Use battery only with charger listed.

n Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords may create a fire.
PERSONAL SAFETY
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
n 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.
n Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
n Never use a battery 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.
n Batteries vent hydrogen gas and 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.
n Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet
location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock.
n 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.
n 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.

sharp edges or moving parts or otherwise subjected to damage or stress. This will reduce the risk of
accidental falls, which could cause injury, and damage
to the cord, which could result in electric shock.
n Keep cord and charger from heat to prevent
damage to housing or internal parts.
n Do not let gasoline, oils, petroleum-based products,
etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They contain
chemicals that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.
n An extension cord should not be used unless
absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord
could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If
extension cord must be used, make sure:
n
n
n
n
n
n
n
a. That pins on plug of extension cord are the
same number, size and shape as those of
plug on charger.
b. That extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition; and

serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or
fire.
Unplug charger from outlet before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning to reduce the risk of
electric shock.
Disconnect charger from the power supply when
not in use. This will reduce the risk of electric shock
or damage to the charger if metal items should fall into
the opening. It also will help prevent damage to the
charger during a power surge.
Risk of electric shock. Do not touch uninsulated
portion of output connector or uninsulated battery
terminal.
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.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known 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 and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
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.

APPLICATIONS
You may use this tool for the following purposes:
n Cutting all types of wood products (lumber, plywood,
paneling, composition board, and hard wood).
n Cutting masonite and plastic.
n Cutting drywall.
n Cutting metals such as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods,
aluminum, brass, and copper.
n No LED on = Defective charger or battery pack.
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low
charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore,
you should charge it until the green LED on the front of the
charger comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time
they are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed
by recharging) for them to become fully charged.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the battery pack,
remove the battery pack from the charger immediately if no LED comes on. Return the battery pack
and charger to your nearest service center for checking or replacing. Also, if you are removing the battery

OPERATION
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging
time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
n The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
n Do not place the charger and battery pack in an area
of extreme heat or cold. They will work best at normal
room temperature.
NOTE: The charger and battery pack should be placed
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F.
n When batteries become fully charged, unplug the
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
See Figure 2.
If battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
green LED on charger will come on. Allow battery pack to
reach normal temperature, then the red LED will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does not charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest Sears Repair Center for
electrical check.
n Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
n Make sure the power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
n Connect the charger to the power supply.
n Place the battery pack in the charger aligning raised rib
on the battery pack with the groove in the charger.
n Press down on the battery pack to be sure contacts on
the battery pack engage properly with contacts in the
charger.
n Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
n Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the battery
pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
n If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack. Allow
the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15 to 30
minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the red
LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.

CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
When using the tool continuously, the batteries in the
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before
attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes
discharged and is hot, this will cause the green LED to
come on instead of the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert
the battery pack in the charger. If the green LED continues
to remain on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for checking or replacing.
NOTE: This situation only occurs when continuous use of
the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to “CHARGING A COOL 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.

BASE (SHOE) ASSEMBLY
GENERAL CUTTING
See Figure 5.
The base assembly of your reciprocating saw pivots up
and down in both directions. It also is adjustable, allowing
the use of the blade teeth at different positions on the
blade.
See Figure 6.
Hold your saw firmly in front of and clearly away from you.
Make sure saw blade is clear of any foreign material. Be
sure material to be cut is held firmly. Small work pieces
should be securely clamped in a vise or with clamps
to the work bench or table. Mark the line of cut clearly.
Depress the lock-off button, then pull switch trigger to
start the cutting action. Place the base assembly against
the work, then move the blade into the work. Do not
force. Use only enough pressure to keep the saw cutting.
Let the blade and saw do the work. Use of excessive
pressure that causes bending or twisting of the blade may
result in broken blades.
TO CHANGE POSITIONS OF BASE ASSEMBLY:

OPERATION
PLUNGE CUTTING
METAL CUTTING
See Figure 7.
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 (shoe)
assembly on work and hold firmly in position. Depress the
lock-off button, then pull switch trigger to start the cutting
action.
See Figure 8.
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.
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.
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.

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.
WARNING: Batteries vent hydrogen gas and 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.
WARNING: Never use a battery pack that has been

are charged. Allow several cycles (operating light followed
by recharging) for batteries to become fully charged.

CHARGING BATTERY PACK
■
See Figure 1.
■ Use only the recommended battery pack and charger
with the light.
■ Make sure power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
■ Connect charger to power supply.
■ Place battery pack in charger aligning raised rib on
battery pack with groove in charger. See Figure 1.
■ Press down on battery pack to be sure contacts on battery
pack engage properly with contacts in charger.
■ Normally, the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates charger is in fast charging mode.
■ Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in trickle charge mode. Note: Green LED will remain
on until battery pack is removed from charger or
charger is disconnected from power supply.
■ If both yellow and green LED come on, this indicates a
deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow battery pack to remain in charger for 15 to 30
minutes. When battery pack reaches normal voltage
range, red LED should come on.
If red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this
indicates a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging
time is required to fully recharge 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 and battery pack in an area of
extreme heat or cold. It will work best at normal room
temperature.
Note: Charger and battery pack should be placed in a
location where the temperature is more than 50°F but
less than 100°F.
When batteries become fully charged, unplug charger
from power supply and remove the battery pack.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING
HOT BATTERY PACK
When using the light continuously, the batteries in the
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery
pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before
attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes
discharged and is hot, this will cause the green LED to
come on instead of the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert
battery pack in charger. If green LED continues to remain
on, return battery pack to your nearest Sears Repair
Center for checking or replacing.
Note: This situation only occurs when continuous use of
your light 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 the battery pack under
normal circumstances, return both the battery pack and
charger to the nearest Sears Repair Center for electrical
check.

MAINTENANCE
BATTERIES
To preserve natural resources, please
recycle or dispose of batteries properly.
This product contains nickel-cadmium
batteries. Local, state or federal laws
may prohibit disposal of nickel-cadmium
batteries in ordinary trash.
Consult your local waste authority for information
regarding available recycling and/or disposal options.
The battery pack for this light is equipped with nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service from
each charging will depend how much the light is used.
The batteries in the battery pack have been designed to
provide maximum trouble free life. However, like all
batteries, they will eventually wear out. Do not
disassemble battery pack and attempt to replace the
batteries. Handling of these batteries, especially when
wearing rings and jewelry, could result in a serious burn.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
■ Store and charge the battery pack in a cool area.
Temperatures below 50°F or above 100° F will
shorten battery life.
■ Never store battery pack in a discharged condition.
Recharge battery immediately when it becomes
discharged.
■ All batteries gradually lose their charge. The higher
the temperature the quicker they lose their charge. If
you store your light for long periods of time without
using it, recharge the batteries every month or two.
This practice will prolong battery life.
BATTERY PACK REMOVAL AND PREPARATION
FOR RECYCLING
WARNING: Upon removal, cover the battery pack's
terminals with heavy duty adhesive tape. Do not
attempt to destroy or disassemble battery pack or

batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly.
Also, never touch both terminals with metal objects
and/or body parts as short circuit may result. Keep
away from children. Failure to comply with these
warnings can result in fire and/or serious injury.
WARNING: Do not attempt to disassemble the
battery pack. Fire or injury can result.
