General Power Tool Safety
WARNING Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
The term “power tool” in the warnings 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 or 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 and moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
Bosch Power Tools
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
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.
1 609 929 N50 | (21.1.08) Page 18 Monday, January 21, 2008 4:22 PM
18 | English
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
5) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
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.
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 tool’s 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.

Safety Warnings
f Keep hands away from the sawing range.
Do not reach under the workpiece. Contact
with the saw blade can lead to injuries.
f Apply the machine to the workpiece only
when switched on. Otherwise there is danger of kickback when the cutting tool jams in
the workpiece.
f Pay attention that the base plate 9 rests
securely on the material while sawing. A
jammed saw blade can break or lead to kickback.
f When the cut is completed, switch off the
machine and then pull the saw blade out of
the cut only after it has come to a standstill.
In this manner you can avoid kickback and
can place down the machine securely.
f Use only sharp, flawless saw blades. Bent or
unsharp saw blades can break or cause kickback.
f Do not brake the saw blade to a stop by applying side pressure after switching off. The
saw blade can be damaged, break or cause
f Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are hidden in the work area or call
the local utility company for assistance.
Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can
lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage or may cause an
electric shock.
f Hold the power tool only by the insulated
gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with

The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has been measured in accordance with
a standardised test given in EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with another. It may
be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main applications of the tool. However if the
tool is used for different applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level over the total working
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times when
the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may significantly
reduce the exposure level over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator from the effects of vibration such as:
maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.

Controling the Stroke Rate (GST 135 BCE)
Increasing or reducing the pressure on the
On/Off switch 3 enables stepless stroke-rate
control of the switched-on machine.
Light pressure on the On/Off switch 3 results in
a low stroke rate. Increasing the pressure also
increases the stroke rate.
When the On/Off switch 3 is locked, it is not
possible to reduce the stroke rate.
Presetting the Stroke Rate
With the thumbwheel for stroke rate preselection 5, the stroke rate can be preset and
changed during operation.
1 – 2:
3 – 4:
5 – 6:
Low stroke rate
Medium stroke rate
High stroke rate
The required stroke rate is dependent on the
material and the working conditions and can be
determined by a practical trial.
Reducing the stroke rate is recommended when
the saw blade engages in the material as well as
when sawing plastic and aluminium.
Bosch Power Tools Page 25 Monday, January 21, 2008 4:22 PM
English | 25
After longer periods of work at low stroke rate,
the machine can heat up considerably. Remove
the saw blade from the machine and allow the
machine to cool down by running it for approx.
3 minutes at maximum stroke rate.
Working Advice
f When working small or thin work pieces, always use a sturdy support or a saw table
While working, hold the machine by the handle
4 and guide it alongside the desired cutting line.
For precise cuts and quiet running, guide the
machine additionally with the other hand by the
plastic cap 1.

during the working procedure and may not be
Sawing Thick Wood
For straight cuts in thick wood, please observe
the following recommendations:
– Switch on Precision Control for lateral guidance of the saw blade (see “Precision Control”, page 24).
– Use Bosch saw blades marked with “Precision for Wood”.
– Adjust the precise mitre angle using an angle
– Saw applying only low feed. Orbital action
and stroke ensure sufficient working process.
– Always guide the machine resting firmly
against the parallel guide 27 or an auxiliary
guide rail. Avoid lateral pressure on the handle 4 to prevent tilting of the machine.
– While sawing, hold the machine with one
hand by the handle 4 and with the other hand
by the plastic cap 1.
Bosch Power Tools
Plunge Cutting (see figures I – J)
f Plunge cuts may only be applied to soft
materials, such as wood, gypsum plaster
boards, etc.!
Use only short saw blades for plunge cutting.
Plunge cutting is possible only with the mitre
angle set at 0°.
Place the machine with the front edge of the
base plate 9 on to the workpiece without the
saw blade 15 touching the workpiece and
switch on. For machines with stroke rate control, select the maximum stroke rate. Firmly
hold the machine against the workpiece and by
tilting the machine, slowly plunge the saw blade
into the workpiece.
When the base plate 9 fully lays on the workpiece,
continue sawing along the desired cutting line.
Parallel Guide with Circle Cutter (Accessory)
For cuts using the parallel guide with circle cutter 27 (accessory), the thickness of the material
must not exceed a maximum of 30 mm.
Parallel Cuts (see figure K): Loosen the locking
screw 26 and slide the scale of the parallel guide
through the lead 25 in the base plate. Set the
desired cutting width as the scale value on the
inside edge of the base plate. Tighten the locking screw 26.
Circular Cuts (see figure L): Set the locking
screw 26 to the other side of the parallel guide.
Slide the scale of the parallel guide through the
lead 25 in the base plate. Drill a hole in the workpiece centred in the section to be sawn. Insert
the centring tip 28 through the inside opening of
the parallel guide and into the drilled hole. Set
the radius as the scale value on the inside edge
of the base plate. Tighten the locking screw 26.
When sawing metal, coolant/lubricant should be
applied alongside cutting line because of the
material heating up.
