SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Work Area
• Keep your work area clean and well
lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
• 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.
• Keep bystanders, children, and
visitors away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
Electrical Safety
• Double insulated tools are equipped
with 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 a polarized
outlet. Do not change the plug in
any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three wire
grounded power cord and grounded
power supply system.
• Avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your
body is grounded.
• Don’t expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use
the cord to carry the tools or pull
the plug from an outlet. Keep cord
away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Replace damaged
cords immediately. Damaged cords
increase the risk of electric shock.

Personal Safety
• 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. Air vents
cover moving parts and should be
avoided.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure
switch is off before plugging in.
Carrying tools with your finger on the
switch or plugging in tools that have
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 enables
better control of the tool in unexpected
situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
Tool Use and Care
• Use clamps or other practical way to
secure and support the workpiece
2
642743-00 CS1030 CS1040L

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. Any tool that cannot
be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
• Disconnect the plug from the power
source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventative
safety measures reduce the 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.
• 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 tools 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 become
hazardous when used on another tool.
Service
• Tool service must be performed only
by 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 electric shock or injury.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
•
DANGER! Keep hands away from
cutting area and blade. Keep your
3
Page 3
second hand on auxiliary handle, or
motor housing. If both hands are
holding the saw, they cannot be cut by
the blade.
Keep your body positioned to either
side of the saw blade, but not in line
with the saw blade. KICKBACK could
case the saw to jump backwards. (See
“Causes and Operator Prevention of
Kickback.”)
Do not reach underneath the work.
The guard can not protect you from the
blade below the work.
Check 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, the lower guard
may be bent. Raise the lower guard
with the Retracting Lever and make
sure it moves freely and does not touch
the blade or any other part, at all angles
and depth of cut.
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.
Lower guard should be retracted
manually only for special cuts such
as “Pocket Cuts” and “Compound
Cuts.” Raise lower guard by
Retracting Lever. As soon as blade
enters the material, lower guard
must be released. For all other sawing,
the lower guard should operate
automatically.
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.
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.
Hold tool by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an
operation where the cutting tool may

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.
c. When restarting a saw in the
workpiece, center the saw blade
in the kerf and check that the saw
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.
d. Support large panels to minimize
the risk of blade pinching and
KICKBACK. Large panels tend to
sag under their own weight. Support
must be placed under the panel on
both sides, near the line of cut and
near the edge of the panel.
e. Do not use dull or damaged
blade. Unsharpened or improperly
set blades produce narrow kerf
causing excessive friction, blade
binding, and KICKBACK.
f. Blade depth and bevel adjusting
locking levers must be tight and
secure before making cut. If blade
adjustment shifts while cutting, it
may cause binding and KICKBACK.
g. 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.
contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Contact with a “live” wire will also
make exposed metal parts of the tool
“live” and shock the operator.
• When ripping, always use a rip
fence or straight edge guide. This
improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance for blade binding.
• 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.
• 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:
• 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 operator.
• Kickback is the result of tool misuse
and/or incorrect operating procedures
or conditions and can be avoided by
taking proper precautions as given
below.
a. Maintain a firm grip with both
hands on the saw and position
your body and arm to allow you to
resist KICKBACK forces. Kickback
forces can be controlled by the
operator, if proper precautions are
taken.
b. 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

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES:
CIRCULAR SAWS
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,
• arsenic and chromium from
chemically-treated lumber (CCA).
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type
4
642743-00 CS1030 CS1040L
4/13/06
10:06 AM
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.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust
from power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities. Wear
protective clothing and wash
exposed areas with soap and water.
Allowing dust to get into your mouth,
eyes, or lay on the skin may promote
absorption of harmful chemicals.
WARNING: Use of this tool can
generate and/or disburse dust, which
may cause serious and permanent
respiratory or other injury. Always use
NIOSH/OSHA approved respiratory
protection appropriate for the dust
exposure. Direct particles away from
face and body.
CAUTION: Wear appropriate hearing
protection during use. Under some
conditions and duration of use,
noise from this product may
contribute to hearing loss.
• Snagging the lower guard on a
surface below the material being cut
can momentarily reduce operator
control. The saw can lift partially out of
the cut increasing the chance of blade
twist. Ensure there is sufficient
clearance under the workpiece.
• When necessary to raise lower guard
manually, use the retracting lever.
• KEEP THE BLADES CLEAN AND
SHARP. Sharp blades minimize stalling
and kickback. The use of dull and/or
dirty blades can increase the saw
loading causing the operator to push
harder which promotes twisting.
DANGER: LACERATION HAZARD.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING
AREA. Keep hands away from blades.
Never place hands in front of or behind
the path of the blade while cutting. Do
not reach underneath work while blade
is rotating. Do not attempt to remove cut
material when blade is moving.
• SUPPORT LARGE PANELS. Large
panels must be supported as shown
(figure 1) in this manual to minimize the
risk of blade pinching and kickback.
Material supported only at the ends
(figure 2) will lead to blade pinching.
When cutting operation requires the
resting of the saw on the workpiece, the
saw shall be rested on the larger portion
and the smaller piece cut off.
Page 5

• USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES AND
BLADE ASSEMBLY COMPONENTS
WHEN MOUNTING BLADES. Do not
use blades with incorrect size holes.
Never use defective or incorrect blade
washers or bolts. Follow blade assembly
procedures.
• ADJUSTMENTS. Before cutting be sure
depth and bevel adjustments are tight.
• SUPPORT AND SECURE THE WORK
PROPERLY. Insure that the material to
be cut is clamped (figure 3) and solidly
supported and balanced on a strong,
stable and level work surface. Support
the work so that the wide portion of the
saw shoe is on the portion of the
material that doesn’t fall after the cut is
made. Never hold cut off piece by hand
(figure 4 ). KICKBACK from blade pinch
can result. Keep both hands on saw at
all times.

one tooth of the blade projects below the
workpiece as shown in (figure 8).
• Do not back up a rotating blade in the
cut. Twisting the saw can cause the
back edge of the blade to dig into the
material, climb out of the work and run
back toward the operator.
• Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and
remove all nails from lumber before
cutting.
• STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE
CONTROL. Keep body positioned to one
side of blade. Always maintain a firm grip
and control of saw with both hands. Do
not change hand grip or body position
while saw is running. Take precaution to
avoid injury from cut off pieces and other
falling material during operation.
DANGER: RELEASE SWITCH
IMMEDIATELY IF BLADE BINDS OR
SAW STALLS
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK
• KICKBACK CAN BE CAUSED BY the
saw blade becoming pinched, twisted or
bound while cutting, or when the saw
stalls. When 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 cut and move
suddenly back toward the operator.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF KICKBACK
• Keep a firm grip on saw with both hands
at all times.
• Stay alert – exercise control.
• Support long overhanging materials. As
the material is cut and weakens, it will
sag, causing a pinched blade.
• Support large panels as shown (Fig. 1).
Material supported only at the ends (Fig.
2) will lead to blade pinching.
• Avoid sawing overhead. Material can
sag and will pinch blade.
• Keep blades sharp and clean.
• Use fence or straight edge guide when
ripping. Be careful as the cut off strip can
sag or twist, closing the cut and pinching
the blade, leading to KICKBACK.
• Don’t force tool. Wood variables such as
knots, hardness, toughness, wetness,
pressure treated and freshly cut green
lumber can heavily load the saw which
can lead to stalling. Push the saw slower
when this occurs.
• Don’t remove saw from work during a cut
while the blade is moving.
• Allow saw to reach full speed before
blade contacts material to be cut.
Starting the saw with the blade against
the work or pushed forward into cut can
lead to stalling or sudden backward
movement of saw.
• Never attempt to lift saw when making a
bevel cut. This leads to blade binding
and stalling.
• Always secure work to prevent
workpiece movement during cut.
• Do not try to force saw back on line if
your cut begins to go off line. This can
cause KICKBACK. Stop saw and allow
blade to coast down to a stop. Withdraw
from cut and start a new cut on the line.
• Set depth adjustment of saw such that
