Safety instructions
General power tool safety warnings
Warning! Read all safety warnings and all
! instructions. Failure to follow all instructions may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below
refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and 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.
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 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 or
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.
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, 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 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 these devices
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.
9
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 tools
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. Service
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will make sure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.
6. 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.

Be aware of the direction that a branch may fall.
Consider all conditions that may affect the direction of
fall, including:
- The intended direction of fall.
- The natural lean of the branch.
- Any unusual heavy limb structure or decay.
- Surrounding trees and obstacles including overhead
lines.
- The wind speed and direction.

The safe distance between a branch and debris to be
felled and bystanders, buildings and other objects is at
least 2 1/2 times the length of the branch. Any
bystander, building or object within this distance is at
risk from being struck by the falling branch.

When cutting a limb that is under tension, be aware of
spring-back. When the tension in the wood fibres are
released the spring loaded limb may strike the operator
and/or throw the tool out of control.

Always wear suitable safety equipment such as nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, goggles, ear protection and
gloves when operating the tool.

Ensure someone is nearby (at a safe distance) in case
of an accident.

Do not attempt to operate the tool when in a tree, on a
ladder or standing on any other unstable support.


knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
Vibration
The declared vibration emission values stated in the
technical data and the declaration of conformity have been
measured in accordance with a standard test method
provided by EN 60745 and may be used for comparing one
tool with another. The declared vibration emission value may
also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
Warning! The vibration emission value during actual use of
the power tool can differ from the declared value depending
on the ways in which the tool is used. The vibration level may
increase above the level stated.
When assessing vibration exposure to determine safety
measures required by 2002/44/EC to protect persons
regularly using power tools in employment, an estimation of
vibration exposure should consider, the actual conditions of
use and the way the tool is used, including taking account of
all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the
tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to
the trigger time.
Labels on tools
Warning! To reduce the risk of injury, the user
must read the instruction manual.
Do not use your saw in wet conditions or
expose it to rain.
Always wear head, hearing and eye protection.
Beware of falling objects.
Keep bystanders away.
Do not use on ladders.
Check the chain tension after every 10 minutes
of use. Adjust back to a clearance of 3 mm.
Oil the chain after every 10 minutes of use.
Warning! Do not touch chain at the chipping
ejection point.
Direction of travel of the chain.
Residual risk
Despite the application of the relevant safety regulations and
the implementation of safety measures, certain residual risks
are inherent to the use of wood cutting saws and cannot be
avoided. These are:

Risk of injury arising from contact with moving parts,
sharp parts, hot parts, branches or debris falling on the
operator, bystanders or property, debris ejected by the
tool.

Risk of injury arising from un-intended use, falling from
a ladder or working position in a tree, damage to the
supply cable, use of the tool in wet or hazardous
locations, use of the product by young children or infirm
persons, failure to wear suitable personal protection or
suitable clothing, breathing dust generated from cutting
wood.
The above risks have been addressed by including warnings
in the safety instructions and/or markings applied to the tool.

Checking and adjusting the saw chain tension (fig. C)
To tension the saw chain (14) slacken the two chain cover
retention bolts (12) with the spanner (13) and the chain
tensioning device will push the chain guide bar (3) out,
setting the correct tension. Retighten the two retention bolts
(12) securely.
Check the correct tension has been set by lightly pulling on
the saw chain (14). The tension is correct when the saw
chain snaps back after being pulled 3 mm away from the
guide bar. There should be no "sag" between the chain guide
bar (3) and the saw chain (14) on the underside.
Note: Do not over tension the saw chain as this will lead to
excessive wear and reduce the life of the bar and saw chain.
It will also lead to reduced product performance.
Note: With first use and when the saw chain is new, check
tension frequently as a new saw chain stretches slightly.
Replacing the saw chain and chain guide bar
After prolonged use the saw chain (14) and /or chain guide
bar (3) may need replacing. Ensure only Black & Decker
recommended replacements are used.
Removing the saw chain and chain guide bar (fig. C & D)
Always wear protective gloves when installing or
removing the saw chain (14). The saw chain is

oil the product with the correct chain oil. (Cat No A6027)
Open the oiling cover (4) and insert the bottle into the oil
filling hole (15), apply pressure to the bottle once to
dispense oil.

This should be adequate for about 10 minutes of cutting
depending upon cutting speed and type of wood.
The hole feeds the oil through to the saw chain on to the chain
guide bar (3) and an excessive amount of oil applied to the unit
could mean the oil drips from the unit around the jaw area. This
is normal and is nothing to be concerned about.
Use
Charging the battery (fig. H)
The battery (6) needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that
were easily done before. When charging the battery (6) for
the first time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an
80% charge.
After several charge and discharge cycles, the battery (6)
will attain full capacity. The battery (6) may become warm
while charging; this is normal and does not indicate a
problem.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient
temperatures below 10°C or above 40°C. Recommended
charging temperature is approximately 24°C.
