IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(For All Tools)
WARNING: WHEN USING ELECTRIC TOOLS, BASIC SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED TO REDUCE
THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, AND PERSONAL
INJURY, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
1. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
2. CONSIDER WORK AREA ENVIRONMENT. Don't use power tools in damp
or wet locations. Keep work area well lit. Don't expose power tools t o rain.
Don't use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases.
3. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept away from work area.
Don't let visitors contact tool or extension cord.
4. STORE IDLE TOOLS. When not in use, tools should be stored in dry, and high
or locked-up place - out of reach of children.
5. DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which
it was intended.
6. USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force small tool or attachment t o do the job of a
heavy-duty tool. Don't use tool for purpose not intended; for example, don't
use circular saw for cutting tree limbs or logs.
7 . DRESS PROPERLY. Don't wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught
in moving parts. Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are recommended
when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering t o contain long hair.
8. USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is
dusty.
9. DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry tool by cord or yank it to disconnect from
receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
I O . SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise t o hold work. It's safer than using
your hand and it frees both hands t o operate tool.
11. DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
12. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and
safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically and if damaged, have repaired by authorized service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if
damaged. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.
13. DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before servicing, and when changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters.
2
14. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking to
see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning
it on.
15. AVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don't carry tool with finger on switch.
Be sure switch is OFF when plugging in.
16. EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure t o use one heavy enough t o carry
the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop
in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Table 1 shows the
correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating.
If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.

17. OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is used outdoors, use only
extension cords intended for use outdoors and so marked.
18. STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing, use common sense. Don't operate
tool when you are tired.
19. 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, bindingof moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any
other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that
is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual.
Have defective switches replaced by authorized service center. Don't use
tool if switch does not turn it on and off.
20. GUARD AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK. Prevent body contact with grounded
surfaces. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges, refrigerator enclosures.
21. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing, use only identical replacement parts.
22. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment 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.
3
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool t o a power source (receptacle,
outlet, etc.) be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the
nameplate of the tool. A power source with voltage greater than that specified
for the tool can result in SERIOUS INJURY t o the user - as well as damage t o
the tool. If in doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL. Using a power source with
voltage less than the nameplate rating is harmful t o the motor.

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
FOR CHARGER & BATTERY CARTRIDGE
1. Do not charge Battery Cartridge when temperature is BELOW 10°C (5OOF)
or ABOVE 4OoC (104OF).
2. Do not attempt t o use a step-up transformer, an engine generator or DC power
receptacle.
3.Do not allow anything t o cover or clog the charger vents.
4. Always cover the battery terminals with the battery cover when the battery
cartridge is not used.
5. A battery short can cause a large current flow, overheating, possible burns
and even a breakdown.
(11 Do not touch the terminals with any conductive material.
(2)Avoid storing battery cartridge in a container with other metal objects such
as nails, coins, etc.
(3)Do not expose battery cartridge t o water or rain.
6. Do not store the tool and Battery Cartridge in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 5OoC (122OF).

tool.
2. Always be sure that the tool is switched off and unplugged before carrying
out any work on the tool.
3.Hold the tool firmly and squarely against the workpiece.
4. Be sure no one is below when using the tool in high locations.
5. Do not touch any metal parts of the tool t o prevent electrical shock if you
drive into a "live" wire.
6. Never lubricate the moving parts such as the feeder box. Malfunction of the
tool may result.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Always switch off the tool before insertion
or removal of the battery cartridge.
To remove the battery cartridge, pull out the
set plate on the tool and grasp both sides
of the cartridge while withdrawing it from
the tool.
*To insert the battery cartridge, align the
tongue on the battery cartridge with the
groove in the housing and slip it into place.
Snap the set plate back into place. Be sure
to close the set plate fully before using the
tool to prevent the battery cartridge from
accidentally falling out of the tool.
Charging
Your new battery cartridge is not charged.
You will need t o charge it before use. Use
the fast charger Model DC1201 to charge
the battery cartridge.
Plug the fast charger into the proper A/C
voltage source The charging light will flash
in green color.
Insert the battery cartridge so that the plus
and minus terminals on the battery
cartridge are on the same sides as their
respective markings on the fast charger.
Insert the cartridge fully into the port so
that it rests on the charger port floor.

When the battery cartridge is inserted, the charging light color will change from green
to red and charging will begin. The charging light will remain lit steadily during chrging.
When charging is completed, the charging light color will change from red t o green and
a tone will sound steadily for about 5 seconds.
After charging, unplug the charger from the power source. Refer to the table below for
the charging time.

CAUTION:
The fast charger Model DC1201 is specifically designed to charge only Makita battery
cartridges. Never use it for other purposes or for other manufacturer's batteries.
When you charge a new battery cartridge or a battery cartridge which has not been used
for a long period of time, it may not accept a full charge. This is a normal condition and
does not indicate a problem. You can recharge the battery cartridge fully after discharging
it completely and recharging a couple of times.
If you charge a battery cartridge from a just-operated tool or a battery cartridge which
has been left in a location exposed to direct sunlight or heat for a long time, the charging
light may flash in red color. If this occurs, wait for a while. Charging will begin after the
battery cartridge cools.
If the charging light flashes alternately in green and red color and a tone sound "beep,
beep, beep,..." for about 20 seconds, a problem exists and charging is not possible. The
terminals on the charger or battery cartridge are clogged with dust or the battery cartridge
is worn out or damaged.
If you wish to charge t w o battery cartridges, allow 15 minutes between chargings on
the fast charger.
