GENERAL SAFETY RULES
(For All Battery Operated Tools)
WARNING! Read and understand all instructions. Failure
to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
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 t o lose control.
Electrical Safety
A battery operated tool w i t h integral batteries or a separate battery pack must
be recharged only w i t h the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery.
Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use
of any other batteries may create a risk of fire.
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 causht in moving parts.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the locked or off position before
inserting battery pack. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting
the battery pack into a tool with 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 enable 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.
2
Tool Use and Care
Use clamps or other practical way t o secure and support the workpiece t o a
stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead t o 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.
* D o not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
.Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch in the locked or off
position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the
tool. Such preventive 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.
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 t o another. Shorting the battery terminals
together may cause sparks, burns, or a fire.
Maintain tools w i t h care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
tools with sharp cutting edge are less likely t o bind and are easier t o control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any
other condition that may affect the tool's 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 create a risk of injury
when used on another tool.
Service
Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel may 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
t o follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.

Specific Safety Rules
1. DANGER! Keep hands away from cutting area and blade. Keep your 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 t o either side of the saw blade, but not in line
with the saw blade. KICKBACK could cause the saw t o 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. Don't attempt t o remove cut material when blade is
moving.
CAUTION: Blades coast after turn off.
2. 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, lower
guard may be bent. Raise the lower guard with the Retracting Handle and make
sure it moves freely and does not touch the blade or any other part, in all angles
and depths of cut.
3.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 t o damaged parts gummy deposits,
or a buildup of debris.
4. Lower guard should be retracted manually only for special cuts such as
"Pocket Cuts" and "Compound Cuts." Raise lower guard by Retracting
Handle. As soon as blade enters the material, lower guard must be released.
For all other sawing, the lower guard should operate automatically.
5. Always observe that the lower guard is covering the blade before placing
saw d o w n on bench or floor. An unprotected, coasting blade will cause the
saw t o walk backwards, cutting whatever is in its path. Be aware of the time
it takes for the blade t o stop after switch is released.
6. NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands or across your leg. It is important
to support the work properly t o minimize body exposure, blade binding, or
loss of control.
7. Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where
the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact w i t h a "live" wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
8. When ripping always use a rip fence or straight edge guide. This improves
the accuracy of cut and reduces the chance for blade binding.
9. 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.
10. 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 or operation.
4
11. 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 the 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.
Maintain a firm grip on the saw and position your body and arm in a way
that allows you t o resist KICKBACK forces. KICKBACK forces can be
controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are taken.
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
t o a complete stop. Never attempt t o 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.
When restarting a saw in the workpiece, center the saw blade in the kerf
and check that teeth are not engaged into the material. If 5aw blade is binding,
it may walk up or KICKBACK from the workpiece as the saw is restarted.
Support large panels t o minimize the risk of blade pinching and KICKBACK.
Large panels tend t o sag under their own weight. Supports must be placed
under the panel on both sides, near the line of cut and near the edge of the
panel as shown in Fig. 1.
To minimize the risk of blade pinching and kickback. When cutting operation
requires the resting of the saw on the workpiece, the saw shall be rested on
the larger Dortion and the smaller piece cut off.
I
To avoid kickback d o support board
or panel near the cut.
Fig. 1
Don't support board or panel away
f r o m the cut.
Fig.
,
5
Do not use dull or damaged blade. Unsharpened or improperly set blades
produce narrow kerf causing excessive friction, blade binding and KICKBACK.
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.
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.
NEVER place your hand or fingers
behind the saw. If kickback occurs,
the saw could easily jump backwards
over your hand, possibly causing
severe injury.
Fig.
12. Adjustments. Before cutting be sure depth and bevel adjustments are tight.
13. Avoid Cutting Nails. Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before
cutting.
14. Place the wider portion of the saw base on that part of the workpiece which
is solidly supported, not on the section that will fall off when the cut is made.
As examples, Fig. 4 illustrates the RIGHT way t o cut off the end of a board,
and Fig. 5 the WRONG way. If the workpiece is short or small, clamp it down.
DON'T TRY TO HOLD SHORT PLACES BY HAND!

15. Never attempt t o saw w i t h the
circular saw held upside d o w n in a
vise. This is extremely dangerous and
can lead t o serious accidents.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Installing or removing battery cartridge
*Always switch off the tool before insertion or removal of the battery cartridge.
To remove the battery cartridge, withdraw
it from the tool while pressing the buttons
on both sides of the cartridge.
*To insert the battery cartridge, align the
tongue on the battery cartridge with the
groove in the housing and slip it into
place. Always insert it all the way until it
locks in place with a little click. If not, it
may accidentally fall out of the tool, causing injury to you or someone around you.
Do not use force when inserting the battery cartridge. If the cartridge does not slide in
easily, it is not being inserted correctly
Charging
*Your new battery cartridge is not charged.
You will need to charge it before use. Use
the high capacity battery charger Model
DC1801 to charge the battery cartridge.
Plug the high capacity battery 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 high capacity
battery 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 charging.
When the charging light color changes from red to green, the charging cycle is complete
and the charger will switch into its ”trickle charge (maintenance charge)” mode. The
charging time is approximately one hour.
After charging, unplug the charger from the power source.
CAUTION:
The high capacity battery charger Model DC1801 is for charging Makita battery cartridge.
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.
11
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. The battery cartridge will cool faster if you remove the battery cartridge
from the high capacity battery charger.
If the charging light flashes alternately in green and red color, a problem exists and charg
ing is not possible. The terminals on the charger or battery cartridge are clogged with
dust or the battery cartridge is worn out or damaged.
Trickle charge (Maintenance charge)
If you leave the battery cartridge in the charger to prevent spontaneous discharging after
full charge, the charger will switch into its ”trickle charge (maintenance charge)” mode and
keep the battery cartridge fresh and fully charged.
Tips for maintaining maximum battery life
1. Charge the battery cartridge before completely discharged.
Always stop tool operation and charge the battery cartridge when you notice less tool
power.
2. Never recharge a fully charged battery cartridge.
Overcharging shortens the battery service life.
3. Charge the battery cartridge with room temperature at 10°C - 40°C (50°F - 104°F)
Let a hot battery cartridge cool down before charging it.
Hex wrench storage
When not in use, the hex wrench can be
conveniently stored.
