Safety Notes
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
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 reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
Bosch Power Tools
Work area safety
 Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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 children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
 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.
 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.
 Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric
 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.
 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 shock.
 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.
Personal safety
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
1 609 92A 06G | (12.4.13) Page 14 Friday, April 12, 2013 9:22 AM
14 | English
 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.
 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.
Power tool use and care
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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
 Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
 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.
 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.
Safety Warnings for Circular Saws
 DANGER: Keep hands away from cutting area and the
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.
 Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The guard cannot protect you from the blade below the workpiece.
 Adjust the cutting depth to the thickness of the workpiece. Less than a full tooth of the blade teeth should be
visible below the workpiece.
 Never hold piece being cut in your hands or across your
leg. Secure the workpiece to a stable platform. It is im-
1 609 92A 06G | (12.4.13)
portant to support the work properly to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
 Hold the power tool by the insulated gripping surfaces
only, when performing an operation where the cutting
tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact
with a “live” wire will also make exposed metal parts of the
power tool “live” and could give the operator an electric
 When ripping always use a rip fence or straight edge
guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and reduces the
chance of blade binding.
 Always use blades with correct size and shape (diamond versus round) of arbour 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 bolt.
The blade washers and bolt were specially designed for
your saw, for optimum performance and safety of operation.
 Kickback causes and related warnings
– 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 saw misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking proper precautions as given below.
 Maintain a firm grip with both hands on the saw and position your arms to resist kickback forces. Position
your body to either side of the blade, but not in line with
the blade. Kickback could cause the saw to jump backwards, but 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 to a 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.
 When restarting a saw in the workpiece, centre the saw
blade in the kerf and check that 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.
 Support large panels to minimise the risk of blade
pinching and kickback. Large panels tend to 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.
Bosch Power Tools Page 15 Friday, April 12, 2013 9:22 AM
English | 15
 Do not use dull or damaged blades. 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 sawing into existing walls or
other blind areas. The protruding blade may cut objects
that can cause kickback.
 Check lower guard for proper closing before each use.
Do not operate the 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.
 Check the operation 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
build-up of debris.
 Lower guard may be retracted manually only for special cuts such as “plunge cuts” and “compound cuts”.
Raise lower guard by retracting handle and as soon as
blade enters the material, the 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.
 Use the appropriate saw blade for the riving knife. For
the riving knife to function, the body of the blade must be
thinner than the riving knife and the cutting width of the
balde must be wider than the thickness of the riving knife.
 Adjust the riving knife as described in this instruction
manual. Incorrect spacing, positioning and alignment can
make the riving knife ineffective in preventing kickback.
 Always use the riving knife except when plunge cutting. Riving knife must be replaced after plunge cutting.
Riving knife causes interference during plunge cutting and
can create kickback.
 For the riving knife to work, it must be engaged in the
workpiece. The riving knife is ineffective in preventing
kickback during short cuts.
 Do not operate the saw if riving knife is bent. Even a
light interference can slow the closing rate of a guard.
 Do not reach into the saw dust ejector with your hands.
They could be injured by rotating parts.
 Do not work overhead with the saw. In this manner you
do not have sufficient control over the power tool.
 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
Bosch Power Tools
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line causes property damage or
may cause an electric shock.
 Do not operate the power tool stationary. It is not designed for operation with a saw table.
 Do not use high speed steel (HSS) saw blades. Such saw
blades can easily break.
 Do not saw ferrous metals. Red hot chips can ignite the
dust extraction.
 When working with the machine, always hold it firmly
with both hands and provide for a secure stance. The
power tool is guided more secure with both hands.
 Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamping devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
 Always wait until the machine has come to a complete
stop before placing it down. The tool insert can jam and
lead to loss of control over the power tool.
 Never use the machine with a damaged cable. Do not
touch the damaged cable and pull the mains plug when
the cable is damaged while working. Damaged cables increase the risk of an electric shock.

Bosch Power Tools
Dust/Chip Extraction
 Before any work on the machine itself, pull the mains
 Dusts from materials such as lead-containing coatings,
some wood types, minerals and metal can be harmful to
one’s health. Touching or breathing-in the dusts can cause
allergic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infections of
the user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are considered
as carcinogenic, especially in connection with wood-treatment additives (chromate, wood preservative). Materials
containing asbestos may only be worked by specialists.
– As far as possible, use a dust extraction system suitable for the material.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the
materials to be worked.
External Dust Extraction
Mount the vacuum hose 30 (accessory) on to the saw dust
ejector 17. Connect the vacuum hose 30 to a vacuum cleaner
(accessory). An overview for connecting to various vacuum
cleaners can be found at the end of this manual.
The machine can be plugged directly into the receptacle of a
Bosch all-purpose vacuum cleaner with remote starting control. The vacuum cleaner starts automatically when the machine is switched on.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material being
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially detrimental to
health or carcinogenic, use a special vacuum cleaner.
Integrated Dust Extraction with Dust Bag

Cutting Marks
or 8; see Section “Cutting Marks”. Tighten wing bolt 7 again.
The 0° cutting mark (9) indicates the position of the saw
blade for right-angled cuts. The 45° cutting mark (8) indicates the position of the saw blade for 45° cuts.
For precise cuts, position the circular saw against the workpiece as shown in the figure. It is best to carry out a trial cut.
Starting Operation
 Observe correct mains voltage! The voltage of the power source must agree with the voltage specified on the
nameplate of the machine. Power tools marked with
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
Switching On and Off
 To save energy, only switch the power tool on when using it.
To start the machine, first push the lock-off button for the
On/Off switch 2 and then press the On/Off switch 1 and keep
it pressed.
To switch off the machine, release the On/Off switch 1.
Note: For safety reasons, the On/Off switch 1 cannot be
locked; it must remain pressed during the entire operation.
Sawing with Auxiliary Guide (see figure E)
For sawing large workpieces or straight edges, a board or
strip can clamped to the workpiece as an auxiliary guide; the
base plate of the circular saw can be guided alongside the auxiliary guide.
Sawing with Guide Rail (see figure G)
The guide rail 28 is used to carry out straight cuts.
The adhesive coating prevents the guide rail from slipping and
protects the surface of the workpiece. The coating of the
guide rail allows the circular saw to glide easily.
The rubber lip on the guide rail acts as a splinter guard; it prevents fraying of the surface while sawing wooden materials.
For this, the teeth of the saw blade must face directly against
the rubber lip.
The guide rail 28 must not extend beyond the face side of
the workpiece where the cut is to be started.
The guide-rail adapter 27 is required for working with the
guide rail 28. The guide-rail adapter 27 is mounted in the
same manner as the parallel guide 10.
The following work steps are required for exact cuts using the
guide rail 28:
– Place the guide rail 28 on to the workpiece projecting lightly over the side. Pay attention that the side with the rubber
lip faces to the workpiece.
Working Advice
Protect saw blades against impact and shock.
Guide the machine evenly and with light feed in the cutting direction. Excessive feed significantly reduces the service life of
the saw blade and can cause damage to the power tool.
Sawing performance and cutting quality depend essentially
on the condition and the tooth form of the saw blade. Therefore, use only sharp saw blades that are suited for the material
to be worked.
Sawing Wood
The correct selection of the saw blade depends on the type
and quality of the wood and whether lengthway or crossway
cuts are required.
When cutting spruce lengthways, long spiral chips are
Beech and oak dusts are especially detrimental to health.
Therefore, work only with dust extraction.
Sawing with Parallel Guide (see figure D)
The parallel guide 10 enables exact cuts along a workpiece
edge and cutting strips of the same dimension.
Loosen wing bolt 7 and slide the scale of the parallel guide 10
through the guide in the base plate 13. Adjust the desired cutting width as the scale setting at the respective cutting mark 9
1 609 92A 06G | (12.4.13)
– Set the circular saw with the premounted guide-rail adapter 27 on to the guide rail 28.
– Adjust the desired cutting depth and the bevel angle. Observe the marks on the guide-rail adapter 27 for preadjustment of the various bevel angles; see figure F.
– Align the circular saw with guide-rail adapter in such a manner that the teeth of the saw blade 21 face against the rubber lip. The position of the saw blade 21 depends on the
selected cutting angle. Do not saw into the guide rail.

– Tighten wing bolt 7 to lock the position of the guide-rail
– Remove the circular saw with the premounted guide-rail
adapter 27 from the guide rail 28.
– Align the guide rail 28 on the workpiece in such a manner
that the rubber lip lies exactly alongside the cutting edge.
– Fasten the guide rail 28 with suitable clamping devices,
e. g., screw clamps, on the workpiece. Set the circular saw
with the premounted guide-rail adapter 27 on to the guide
– Switch the machine on and guide it in the cutting direction
applying moderate and steady feed.
Two guide rails can be connected to one with use of the connection piece 29. Clamping is carried out with the four screws
located in the connection piece.
Maintenance and Service
Maintenance and Cleaning
 Before any work on the machine itself, pull the mains
 For safe and proper working, always keep the machine
and ventilation slots clean.
The retracting blade guard must always be able to move freely
and retract automatically. Therefore, always keep the area
around the retracting blade guard clean. Remove dust and
chips by blowing out with compressed air or with a brush.
Saw blades that are not coated can be protected against corrosion with a thin coat of acid-free oil. Before use, the oil must
be removed again, otherwise the wood will become soiled.
Resin and glue residue on the saw blade produces poor cuts.
Therefore, clean the saw blade immediately after use.
If the machine should fail despite the care taken in manufacturing and testing procedures, repair should be carried out by
an after-sales service centre for Bosch power tools.
If the replacement of the supply cord is necessary, this has to
be done by Bosch or an authorized Bosch service agent in order to avoid a safety hazard.
In all correspondence and spare parts order, please always include the 10-digit article number given on the type plate of
the machine.

Avertissements de sécurité
Avertissements de sécurité généraux pour l’outil
Lire tous les avertissements
de sécurité et toutes les instructions. Ne pas suivre les avertissements et instructions
peut donner lieu à un choc électrique, un incendie et/ou une
blessure sérieuse.
Conserver tous les avertissements et toutes les instructions pour pouvoir s’y reporter ultérieurement.
Le terme « outil » dans les avertissements fait référence à
votre outil électrique alimenté par le secteur (avec cordon
d’alimentation) ou votre outil fonctionnant sur batterie (sans
cordon d’alimentation).
Sécurité de la zone de travail
 Conserver la zone de travail propre et bien éclairée. Les
zones en désordre ou sombres sont propices aux accidents.
 Ne pas faire fonctionner les outils électriques en atmosphère explosive, par exemple en présence de liquides inflammables, de gaz ou de poussières. Les outils électriques produisent des étincelles qui peuvent
enflammer les poussières ou les fumées.
 Maintenir les enfants et les personnes présentes à
l’écart pendant l’utilisation de l’outil. Les distractions
peuvent vous faire perdre le contrôle de l’outil.
Sécurité électrique
 Il faut que les fiches de l’outil électrique soient adaptées au socle. Ne jamais modifier la fiche de quelque façon que ce soit. Ne pas utiliser d’adaptateurs avec des
outils à branchement de terre. Des fiches non modifiées
1 609 92A 06G | (12.4.13)
et des socles adaptés réduiront le risque de choc électrique.
 Eviter tout contact du corps avec des surfaces reliées à
la terre telles que les tuyaux, les radiateurs, les cuisinières et les réfrigérateurs. Il existe un risque accru de
choc électrique si votre corps est relié à la terre.
 Ne pas exposer les outils à la pluie ou à des conditions
humides. La pénétration d’eau à l’intérieur d’un outil augmentera le risque de choc électrique.
 Ne pas maltraiter le cordon. Ne jamais utiliser le cordon
pour porter, tirer ou débrancher l’outil. Maintenir le
cordon à l’écart de la chaleur, du lubrifiant, des arêtes
ou des parties en mouvement. Les cordons endommagés
ou emmêlés augmentent le risque de choc électrique.
 Lorsqu’on utilise un outil à l’extérieur, utiliser un prolongateur adapté à l’utilisation extérieure. L’utilisation
d’un cordon adapté à l’utilisation extérieure réduit le risque
de choc électrique.
 Si l’usage d’un outil dans un emplacement humide est
inévitable, utiliser une alimentation protégée par un
dispositif à courant différentiel résiduel (RCD). L’usage
d’un RCD réduit le risque de choc électrique.
Sécurité des personnes
 Rester vigilant, regarder ce que vous êtes en train de
faire et faire preuve de bon sens dans l’utilisation de
l’outil. Ne pas utiliser un outil lorsque vous êtes fatigué
ou sous l’emprise de drogues, d’alcool ou de médicaments. Un moment d’inattention en cours d’utilisation
d’un outil peut entraîner des blessures graves des personnes.
 Utiliser un équipement de sécurité. Toujours porter
une protection pour les yeux. Les équipements de sécurité tels que les masques contre les poussières, les chaussures de sécurité antidérapantes, les casques ou les protections acoustiques utilisés pour les conditions
appropriées réduiront les blessures des personnes.
 Eviter tout démarrage intempestif. S’assurer que l’interrupteur est en position arrêt avant de brancher l’outil au secteur et/ou au bloc de batteries, de le ramasser
ou de le porter. Porter les outils en ayant le doigt sur l’interrupteur ou brancher des outils dont l’interrupteur est en
position marche est source d’accidents.
 Retirer toute clé de réglage avant de mettre l’outil en
marche. Une clé laissée fixée sur une partie tournante de
l’outil peut donner lieu à des blessures de personnes.
 Ne pas se précipiter. Garder une position et un équilibre adaptés à tout moment. Cela permet un meilleur
contrôle de l’outil dans des situations inattendues.
 S’habiller de manière adaptée. Ne pas porter de vêtements amples ou de bijoux. Garder les cheveux, les vêtements et les gants à distance des parties en mouvement. Des vêtements amples, des bijoux ou les cheveux
longs peuvent être pris dans des parties en mouvement.
 Si des dispositifs sont fournis pour le raccordement
d’équipements pour l’extraction et la récupération des
poussières, s’assurer qu’ils sont connectés et correcteBosch Power Tools Page 98 Friday, April 12, 2013 9:22 AM
