DOUBLE INSULATION
IMPORTANT
Double insulation is a concept in safety, in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are isolated
from internal metal motor components with protecting
insulation. Double insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
Servicing requires extreme care and knowledge and should
be performed only by a qualified service technician. For
service we suggest you return the tool to your nearest
RYOBI AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER for repair. When
servicing, use only identical Ryobi replacement parts.
WARNING:
WARNING:
The double insulated system is intended to protect the
user from shock resulting from a break in the tool's
internal wiring. Observe all normal safety precautions
related to avoiding electrical shock.
Do not attempt to operate this tool until you have read
thoroughly and understand completely all instructions,
safety rules, etc. contained in this manual. Failure to
comply can result in accidents involving fire, electric
shock, or serious personal injury. Save this operator's
manual and review frequently for continuing safe operation
and instructing others who may use this tool.
Page 3
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
Safe operation of this power tool requires that you read and
understand this operator's manual and all labels affixed to
the tool. Safety is a combination of common sense, staying
alert, and knowing how your miter saw works.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
1. KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the operator's
manual carefully. Learn the saw's applications and
limitations as well as the specific potential hazards
related to this tool.
2. GUARD AGAINST ELECTRICAL SHOCK BY
PREVENTING BODY CONTACT WITH GROUNDED
SURFACES. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges,
refrigerator enclosures.
3. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in good working order.
4. KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered work
areas and work benches invite accidents. DO NOT
leave tools or pieces of wood on the saw while it is in
operation.
5. DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS. Do
not use power tools near gasoline or other flammable
liquids, in damp or wet locations, or expose them to
rain. Keep the work area well lit.
6. KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. All visitors
should wear safety glasses and be kept a safe distance
from work area. Do not let visitors contact tool or
extension cord while operating.
7. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD-PROOF with padlocks
and master switches, or by removing starter keys.
8. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
9. USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not force the tool or
attachment to do a job it was not designed for. Don't use
it for a purpose not intended.
10. DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry.
They can get caught and draw you into moving parts.
Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended
when working outdoors. Also wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
11. ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE
SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only impactresistant lenses; they are NOT safety glasses.
12. PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask
if the cutting operation is dusty.
16. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and
clean for better and safer performance. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
17. DISCONNECT ALL TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, blades, bits,
cutters, etc., all tools should be disconnected.
18. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Get
in the habit of checking to see that hex keys and
adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning
it on.
19. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure switch is
off when plugging in.
20. USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. 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. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at
least 14 is recommended for an extension cord 25 feet
or less in length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage.
The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
21. USE OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is
used outdoors, use only extension cords with approved
ground connection that are intended for use outdoors
and so marked.
22. KEEP BLADES CLEAN AND SHARP. Sharp blades
minimize stalling and kickback.
23. KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA. Keep
hands away from blades. Do not reach underneath
work or around or under the blade while blade is
rotating. Do not attempt to remove cut material when
blade is moving.
WARNING: Blades coast after turn off.
24. NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor could ignite fumes.
25. INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY and if
damaged, have repaired at your nearest AUTHORIZED
SERVICE CENTER. Stay constantly aware of cord
location and keep it well away from the rotating blade.
26. INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and
replace if damaged.
13. PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
27. KEEP TOOL 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 solvents to clean tool.
14. DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to disconnect
it from receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp
edges.
28. STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE CONTROL. Watch
what you are doing and use common sense. Do not
operate tool when you are tired. Do not rush.
15. DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
Page 4
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
29. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly
and perform its intended function. Check for alignment
of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of
parts, mounting and any other conditions that may affect
its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged must
be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized
service center to avoid risk of personal injury.
30. DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT TURN IT
ON AND OFF. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service center.
38. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not leave tool until it
comes to a complete stop.
39. AVOID CUTTING NAILS. Inspect for and remove all
nails from lumber before cutting.
40. NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts during
use.
41. NEVER START A TOOL WHEN THE BLADE IS IN
CONTACT WITH THE WORKPIECE.
31. USE THE FENCE. Always use the fence when cutting.
42. DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL, OR ANY
MEDICATION.
32. SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES. To minimize risk of
blade pinching and kickback, always support long
workpieces.
43. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work
when practical. It's safer than using your hand and it
frees both hands to operate tool.
33. BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
44. REPLACEMENT PARTS. All repairs, whether electrical
or mechanical, should be made at your nearest
Authorized Service Center.
34. USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use blades
with incorrect size holes. Never use blade washers or
blade screws that are defective or incorrect. The
maximum blade capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254 mm).
35. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
improper accessories may cause risk of injury.
36. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur
if the tool is tipped or if the blade is unintentionally
contacted.
37. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, this tool has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way.
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement
parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or
cause product damage.
45. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them
frequently and use them to instruct other users. If you
loan someone this tool, loan them these instructions
also.
WARNING:
WEAR YOUR
SAFETY
GLASSES
FORESIGHT IS BETTER
THAN NO SIGHT
The operation of any saw 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.
Look for this symbol to point out important safety precautions.
It means attention!!! Your safety is involved.

Additional Rules For Safe Operation
For Miter Saws
1. NEVER USE A DULL SAW BLADE or one that does
not have sufficient set.
2. DO NOT REMOVE THE SAW'S BLADE GUARDS.
Never operate the saw with any guard or cover removed. Make sure all guards are operating properly
before each use.
3. MAKE SURE THE MITER TABLE IS LOCKED IN
POSITION BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SAW. Lock
the miter table by securely tightening the miter lock
handle.
4. NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION "FREEHAND".
Always place the workpiece to be cut on the miter table
and position it firmly against the fence as a backstop.
5. ALWAYS USE A CLAMP to secure the workpiece
when possible.
6. NEVER hand hold a workpiece that is too small to be
clamped. Keep hands clear of the no hands zone.
7. NEVER reach behind or under the blade and its cutting
path with your hands and fingers for any reason.
8. NEVER stand or have any part of your body in line with
the path of the saw blade.
9. ALLOW THE MOTOR TO COME UP TO FULL SPEED
before starting a cut.
10. ALWAYS release the power switch and allow the saw
blade to stop rotating before raising it out of the
workpiece.
11. NEVER reach to pick up a workpiece, a piece of scrap,
or anything else that is in or near the cutting path of the
blade.
12. NEVER leave the miter saw unattended while connected to a power source.
13. FIRMLY CLAMP OR BOLT your miter saw to a workbench or table. The most comfortable saw table height
is 39 inches or at approximately hip height.
14. AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause your hand to
move into the blade. ALWAYS make sure you have
good balance. NEVER operate your miter saw on the
floor or in a crouched position.
15. ALWAYS PROVIDE ADEQUATE ROOM AND SUPPORT for crosscutting long workpieces.
16. NEVER USE A LENGTH STOP ON THE FREE SCRAP
END OF A CLAMPED WORKPIECE. NEVER hold
onto or bind the free scrap end of the workpiece in any
operation. If a work clamp and length stop are used
together, they must both be installed on the same side
of the saw table to prevent the saw from catching the
loose end and kicking up.
17. DO NOT TURN THE MOTOR SWITCH ON AND OFF
RAPIDLY. This could cause the saw blade to loosen
and could create a hazard. Should this ever occur,
stand clear and allow the saw blade to come to a
complete stop. Disconnect your saw from the power
supply and securely retighten the blade bolt.
18. NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO NOT
STACK more than one workpiece on the saw table at
a time.
19. IF ANY PART OF THIS MITER SAW IS MISSING or
should break, bend, or fail in any way, or should any
electrical component fail to perform properly, shut off
the power switch, remove the miter saw plug from the
power source and have damaged, missing, or failed
parts replaced before resuming operation.
20. ALWAYS STAY ALERT! Do not allow familiarity (gained
from frequent use of your saw) to cause a careless
mistake. ALWAYS REMEMBER that a careless fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict severe injury.
21. MAKE SURE THE WORK AREA HAS AMPLE LIGHTING to see the work and that no obstructions will
interfere with safe operation BEFORE performing any
work using your saw.
22. ALWAYS TURN OFF SAW before disconnecting it, to
avoid accidental starting when reconnecting to power
supply.
23. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them frequently and use to instruct other users. If you loan
someone this tool, loan them these instructions also.
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.

DUST BAG (Optional)
An optional dust bag, part number 4090001, is available for
use on your miter saw. It fits over the exhaust port on the
upper blade guard. To install it, remove dust guide from
exhaust port. Then, squeeze the two metal clips to open
the mouth of the bag and slide it on the exhaust port.
Release the clips. The metal ring in the bag should lock in
between the grooves on the exhaust port.
To remove the dust bag for emptying, simply reverse the
above procedure.
TABLE EXTENSIONS (Optional)
To install optional table extensions, part number 982022-001,
insert the ends of extensions into the holes in the sides of the
base. Adjust the extensions to the desired length. To secure
them in place, screw the two thumb screws provided into the
holes in the front of the base and tighten them securely.
Before connecting saw to power source, make sure the
saw blade or blade guard will not hit the work clamp or
table extensions when cutting 35° to 45° angles.
STOP BLOCK (Optional)
The optional stop block is included with the Table extensions and is useful as a stop for making repetitive cuts to
the same length. It can be installed on either side of the
saw base:
■ Loosen the thumb screw and adjust the stop block the
desired distance from the blade for the cut to be made.
For accurate placement of the stop block, measure the
distance from the teeth set on the blade to the stop
block.
■ Tighten thumb screw securely.
■ Make a test cut in scrap material and measure the
length of the workpiece.
■ Make any necessary adjustments.
WARNING:
When using the work clamp with the stop block, install the
clamp on the same side as the stop block. This will
eliminate the possibility of trapping the workpiece, resulting
in the saw blade and workpiece kicking up. Failure to
heed this warning can result in serious personal injury.
WARNING:
Always make sure your miter saw is securely mounted to
a workbench or an appropriate workstand. Failure to do
so could result in an accident resulting in possible serious
personal injury.
ADJUSTMENTS
Your Ryobi miter saw has been adjusted at the factory for
making very accurate cuts. However, some of the components might have been jarred out of alignment during shipping. Also, over a period of time, readjustment will probably
become necessary due to wear. After unpacking your saw,
check the following adjustments before you begin using
saw. Make any readjustments that are necessary and periodically check the parts alignment to make sure that your
saw is cutting accurately.
NOTE: Many of the illustrations in this manual show only
portions of your miter saw. This is intentional so that we
can clearly show points being made in the illustrations.
Never operate your saw without all guards securely in
place and in good operating condition.
WARNING:
Your saw should never be connected to power supply
when you are assembling parts, making adjustments,
installing or removing blades, or when not in use. Disconnecting your saw will prevent accidental starting that
could cause serious injury.

TRAVEL PIVOT ADJUSTMENT
■ The saw arm should rise completely to the up position
by itself.
HEX NUT
■ If the saw arm does not raise by itself or if there is play in
the pivot joints, have saw repaired at your nearest RYOBI
AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER.
DEPTH STOP
The depth stop limits the blade's downward travel. It
allows the blade to go below the miter table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions
the blade 1/4 in. (6.4 mm) from the miter table support.
NOTE: The miter table support is located inside miter table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum cutting
capacity for the 10 in. (254 mm) saw blade provided with
your saw. Therefore, the saw blade provided should never
need adjustments.
However, when the diameter of the blade has been reduced
due to sharpening, it may be necessary to adjust the depth
stop to provide maximum cutting capacity. Also, when a new
blade is installed, it is necessary to check the clearance of
the blade to the miter table support.
DEPTH STOP ADJUSTMENTS
See Figure 21.
■ Unplug your saw.
WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result in accidental
starting causing possible serious personal injury.
■ To adjust the depth stop use a 17 mm wrench or adjustable
wrench and loosen the hex nut at the rear of the miter saw
arm.
■ Use the 5 mm hex key provided to adjust the depth stop
adjustment screw. The saw blade is lowered by turning
the screw counterclockwise and raised by turning the
screw clockwise.
■ Lower the blade into the blade slot of the miter table.
Check blade clearance and maximum cutting distance
(distance from fence where blade enters) to front of miter
table slot.
■ Readjust if necessary.
Fig. 21
WARNING:
Do not start your miter saw without checking for
interference between the blade and any part of the miter
table. Damage could result to the blade if it strikes the
miter table during operation of the saw.
■ Tighten the hex nut with a 17 mm wrench or adjustable
wrench.
■ To prevent the depth stop adjustment screw from turning
while tightening the hex nut, carefully hold it with the hex
key while tightening the hex nut.

When using a work clamp or C-clamp to secure your
workpiece against the fence, clamp workpiece on one
side of the blade only. The workpiece must remain free on
one side of the blade to prevent the blade from binding in
workpiece. The workpiece binding the blade will cause
motor stalling and kickback. This situation could cause an
accident resulting in possible serious personal injury.
15

CROSSCUTTING
See Figure 22.
A crosscut is made by cutting across the grain of the
workpiece. A straight crosscut is made with the miter table
set at the zero degree position. Miter crosscuts are made
with the miter table set at some angle other than zero.
TO CROSSCUT WITH YOUR MITER SAW:
■ Pull out the lock pin and lift saw arm to its full height.
■ Loosen the miter lock handle. Rotate the miter lock
handle approximately one-half turn to the left to loosen.
■ Press the miter lock plate down with your thumb and hold.
■ Rotate the control arm until the pointer aligns with the
desired angle on the miter scale.
■ Release the miter lock plate.
NOTE: You can quickly locate 0°, or 15°, 22-1/2°, 30°,
and 45° left or right by releasing the miter lock plate as you
rotate the control arm. The miter lock plate will seat itself
in one of the positive stop notches, located in the miter
table frame.
■ Tighten the miter lock handle securely.
WARNING:
To avoid serious personal injury, always tighten the miter
lock handle securely before making a cut. Failure to do so
could result in movement of the control arm or miter table
while making a cut.
STRAIGHT CROSSCUT
Fig. 22
■ When cutting long pieces of lumber or molding, support
the opposite end of the stock with a roller stand or with a
work surface level with the saw table. See Figure 23.
■ Align cutting line on the workpiece with the edge of saw
blade.
■ Grasp the stock firmly with one hand and secure it against
the fence. Use the work clamp or a C-clamp to secure the
workpiece when possible.
WARNING:
To avoid serious personal injury, keep your hands outside
the no hands zone and at least 3 in. (76.2 mm) from blade.
Never perform any cutting operation freehand (without
securing workpiece against the fence). The blade could
grab the workpiece if it slips or twists.
■ Before turning on the saw, perform a dry run of the cutting
operation just to make sure that no problems will occur
when the cut is made.
■ Grasp the saw handle firmly, slide the lock-off lever back,
then squeeze the switch trigger. Allow several seconds
for the blade to reach maximum speed.
■ Slowly lower the blade into and through the workpiece.
■ Place the workpiece flat on the miter table with one edge
■
securely against the fence. If the board is warped, place
the convex side against the fence. If the concave edge of
a board is placed against the fence, the board could
collapse on the blade at the end of the cut, jamming the
blade. See Figures 24 and 25.
Page 18
Release the switch trigger and allow the saw blade to stop
rotating before raising the blade out of workpiece. Wait
until the electric brake stops blade from turning before
removing the workpiece from the miter table.
OPERATION
SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES
See Figure 23.
Long workpieces need extra supports. Supports should be
placed along the workpiece so it does not sag. The support
should let the workpiece lay flat on the base of the saw and
work table during the cutting operation. Use the work clamp
or a C-clamp to secure the workpiece.
WARNING:
To avoid serious personal injury, always keep your hands
outside the no hands zone and at least 3 in. (76.2 mm)
from blade. Never perform any cutting operation freehand (without securing workpiece against the fence). The
blade could grab the workpiece if it slips or twists.

MAINTENANCE
EXTENSION CORDS
WARNING:
When servicing, use only identical Ryobi replacement
parts. Use of any other part may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
GENERAL
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, carbon dust, etc.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of power.
To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent tool overheating,
use an extension cord that is heavy enough to carry the
current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for
an extension cord 25 feet or less in length. When working
outdoors, use an extension cord that is suitable for outdoor
use. The cord's jacket will be marked WA.
CAUTION:
Keep extension cords away from the cutting area and
position the cord so that it will not get caught on lumber,
tools, etc., during cutting operation.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, penetrating oils, etc. come in contact
with plastic parts. They contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or destroy plastic.
It has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated
wear and possible premature failure when they are used on
fiberglass, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster. The
chips and grindings from these materials are highly abrasive
to electric tool parts such as bearings, brushes, commutators,
etc. Consequently, it is not recommended that this tool be
used for work on any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling
compounds, or plaster. Wood and plastic are the only
recommended materials to be cut with this saw. When
cutting these materials it is extremely important that the tool
is cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
WARNING:
Check extension cords before each use. If damaged,
replace immediately. Never use tool with a damaged cord
since touching the damaged area could cause electrical
shock resulting in serious injury.
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.
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.
Page 21
MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
To ensure safety and reliability, all repairs — with the
exception of the externally accessible brushes — should
be performed by a qualified service technician at a Ryobi
Authorized Service Center to avoid risk of personal

EXTENSION CORD CAUTION
**Ampere rating
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from a power
source, be sure to use an extension cord that has the capacity to
handle the current the tool will draw. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in overheating and loss of
power. Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size
required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords should
be used.
When working with a tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is
designed for outside use. This is indicated by the letters "WA" on
the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed
wires and cut or worn insulation.
