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 ignke the dust or fumes.
[] Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
ELECTRmCAL
SAFETY
[] A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
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.
[] Use battery

[] Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords may create a 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 caught 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 insert=
ing the battery pack into a too! 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.
[] Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
[] Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
TOOL USE AND CARE
[] Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece 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. 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 accidenta!iy.
[] 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 to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause
sparks, burns, or a fire.
[] Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Propedy 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 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.
[] Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
SERVmCE
[] Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personne! may result in a risk of injury.
[] Homdtoom by insumated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting toom may
contact hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and
shock the operator.
[] Know your power tool. Read operator's manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious injury.
[] Always wear safety glasses with side shields.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses.
They are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule wil!
reduce the risk of eye injury.
[] Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Fol!owing this rule wil! reduce the
risk of serious personal injury.
[] Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during extended periods of operation. Following this rule
wil! reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
[] Battery tools do not have to be plugged into an
electrical outlet; therefore, they are always in
operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards
when not using your battery tool or when changing
accessories.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal 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 hstructions may create a
risk of shock or injury.
[] Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. This wil! reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
[] Never use a battery that has been dropped or
received a sharp blow. A damaged battery is subject
to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged battery immediately.
[] Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can expmode in
the presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot
light. To reduce the risk of serious personal injury,
never use any cordless product in the presence of
open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris and
chemicals. If exposed, flush with water immediately.
[] Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet
location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock.
[] For best results, your battery tool should be
charged in s location where the temperature
is
more than 50°F but less than 100°F. Do not store
outside or in vehicles.

GENERALCUTTING
See Figure 6.
Rest the front of the saw base on the workpiece and align
cutting edge of the blade with the line on your workpiece.
Start your saw and move it forward on the work surface.
Apply downward pressure to keep the saw steady and
only enough forward pressure to keep the blade cutting.
DO NOT FORCE YOUR SAW
Forcing your saw may overheat the motor and break saw
blades. Broken saw blades must be discarded. Remove
the broken portion of the saw blade from the clamp and
install a new saw blade.
ORBITAL
MOTION
See Figure 6.
The blade of your saw cuts in orbital motion. This feature
is adjustable and provides faster more efficient cutting.
The blade cuts through your work in the upstroke but
does not drag across your work in the downstroke. The
higher settings should be used when fast cutting in soft
material is desired. The lower settings should be used
when cutting materials with more resistance.
STRAIGHT CUT
See Figure 6.
ORBITAL
A straight cut can be made by clamping a piece of wood
or straightedge to the workpiece and guiding the edge of
your saw against it. Make the cut from one direction only.
Don't cut halfway and complete the cut from the opposite
end.
