WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury,
read the instruction manual.
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
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 REFERENCE
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or batteryoperated (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.
5
ENGLISH
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 or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
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 shock.
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
6
e)
f)
g)
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.
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.
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
ENGLISH
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
5) BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Recharge only with the charger specified
by the manufacturer. A charger that is
suitable for one type of battery pack may
create a risk of fire when used with another
battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any
other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
c) 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 burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be
ejected from the battery, avoid contact.
If contact accidentally occurs, flush with
water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally
seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the
battery may cause irritation or burns.
6) 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.
Additional Safety Instructions for
Reciprocating Saws
• Hold power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces when performing an operation
where the cutting accessory may contact
hidden wiring. Cutting accessory contacting a
“live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the
power tool “live” and could give the operator an
electric shock.
• ALWAYS wear a dust mask. Exposure to
dust particles can cause breathing difficulty and
possible injury.
• NEVER switch on the tool when the saw blade
is jammed in the workpiece or in contact with
the material.
• Keep hands away from moving parts. Never
place your hands near the cutting area.
• Use extra caution when cutting overhead
and pay particular attention to overhead
wires which may be hidden from view.
Anticipate the path of falling branches and
debris ahead of time.
• Do not operate this tool for long periods of
time. Vibration caused by the operating action
of this tool may cause permanent injury to
fingers, hands, and arms. Use gloves to provide
extra cushion, take frequent rest periods, and
limit daily time of use.
SWITCHING ON AND OFF
• After switching off, never attempt to stop the
saw blade with your fingers.
• Never put the saw down on a table or work
bench unless switched off. The saw blade will
keep running briefly after the tool has been
switched off.
WHEN SAWING
• When using saw blades specially designed for
cutting wood remove all nails and metal objects
from the workpiece before starting work.
• Wherever possible, use clamps and vices to
fasten the workpiece securely.
• Do not attempt to saw extremely small
workpieces.
• Do not bend too far forward. Make sure
that you always stand firmly, particularly on
scaffolding and ladders.
• Always hold the saw with both hands.
• For cutting curves and pockets, use an adapted
saw blade.
CHECKING AND CHANGING THE SAW BLADE
• Only use saw blades conforming to the
specifications contained in these operating
instructions.
• Only sharp saw blades in perfect working
condition should be used; cracked or bent saw
blades should be discarded and replaced at
once.
• Ensure that the saw blade is securely fixed.

HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
When the charger detects a battery that is too hot
or too cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack
Delay, suspending charging until the battery has
reached an appropriate temperature. The charger
then automatically switches to the pack charging
mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life.
A cold battery pack will charge at about half the rate
of a warm battery pack. The battery pack will charge
at that slower rate throughout the entire charging
cycle and will not return to maximum charge rate
even if the battery warms.
LITHIUM ION BATTERY PACKS ONLY
XR Li-Ion tools are designed with an Electronic
Protection System that will protect the battery
against overloading, overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic
Protection System engages. If this occurs, place the
Li-Ion battery on the charger until it is fully charged.

ENGLISH
NOTE: The fuel gauge is only an indication of the
charge left on the battery pack. It does not indicate
tool functionality and is subject to variation based
on product components, temperature and end-user
application.
Variable Speed Trigger Switch
(fig. 4)
LOCK-OFF BUTTON AND TRIGGER SWITCH
Your saw is equipped with a lock-off button (b).
To lock the trigger switch, press the lock-off
button as shown in figure 4. Always lock the trigger
switch (a) when carrying or storing the tool to
eliminate unintentional starting. The lock-off button
is colored red to indicate when the switch is in its
unlocked position.
To unlock the trigger switch, press the lock-off
button as shown in figure 4. Pull the trigger switch
to turn the motor ON. Releasing the trigger switch
turns the motor OFF.
WARNING: This tool has no provision
to lock the switch in the ON position,
and should never be locked ON by any
other means.
The variable speed trigger switch will give you added
versatility. The further the trigger is depressed the
higher the speed of the saw.
CAUTION: Use of very slow speed is
recommended only for beginning a cut.
Prolonged use at very slow speed may
damage your saw.
OPERATION
WARNING: To reduce the risk
of serious personal injury, turn
tool off and disconnect tool from
power source before making any
adjustments or removing/installing
attachments or accessories.
Blade Installation and Removal
(fig. 1, 5–7, 10)
Different blade lengths are available. Use the
appropriate blade for the application. The blade
should be longer than 89 mm (3-1/2") and should
extend past the shoe and the thickness of the
workpiece during the cut. Do not use jigsaw blades
with this tool.
WARNING: Cut hazard. Blade
breakage may occur if the blade
does not extend past the shoe and
the workpiece during the cut (fig. 5).
Increased risk of personal injury, as well
as damage to the shoe and workpiece
may result.
TO INSTALL BLADE INTO SAW
1. Pull blade clamp release lever (c) up (fig. 1).
2. Insert blade shank from the front.
3. Push blade clamp release lever down.
NOTE: The blade can be installed in four positions
as shown in figure 6. Both units allow the blade to
be installed upside-down to assist in flush-to cutting;
see figure 10.
TO REMOVE BLADE FROM SAW
CAUTION: Burn hazard. Do not touch
the blade immediately after use. Contact
with the blade may result in personal
injury.
1. Open up blade clamp release lever.
2. Remove blade.
Proper Hand Position (fig. 9)
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
serious personal injury, ALWAYS use
proper hand position as shown.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
serious personal injury, ALWAYS hold
securely in anticipation of a sudden
reaction.
Proper hand position requires one hand on the hand
grip (e), with the other hand on the main handle (h).
Cutting with Blade in Horizontal
Position (fig. 7)
Your reciprocating saw is equipped with a horizontal
blade clamp. Installing a blade in the horizontal
orientation allows cutting close to floors, walls or
ceilings where limited clearance is available. Ensure
that the shoe is pressed against the framing to avoid
kickback.
Adjustable Shoe (fig. 8)
CAUTION: Cut hazard. To prevent loss
of control, never use tool without shoe.
Your reciprocating saw comes with an adjustable
shoe. The shoe will adjust to limit the depth of cut.
Hold the saw with the underside facing up. Push the
button on the hand grip and slide the shoe out to
one of the three settings and release the button.
13
ENGLISH
Cutting (fig. 9–12)
WARNING: Always use eye
protection. All users and bystanders
must wear approved eye protection.
WARNING: Exercise extra caution
when cutting towards operator. Always
hold saw firmly with both hands while
cutting.
Before cutting any type of material, be sure it is
firmly anchored or clamped to prevent slipping.
Place blade lightly against work to be cut, switch
on saw motor and allow it to obtain maximum
speed before applying pressure. Whenever
possible, the saw shoe must be held firmly against
the material being cut (fig. 9). This will prevent the
saw from jumping or vibrating and minimize blade
breakage. Any cuts which put pressure on the
blade such as angle or scroll cuts increase potential
for vibration, kickback, and blade breakage.
WARNING: Use extra caution when
cutting overhead and pay particular
attention to overhead wires which may
be hidden from view. Anticipate the path
of falling branches and debris ahead of
time.
WARNING: Inspect work site for
hidden gas pipes, water pipes, or
electrical wires before making blind
or plunge cuts. Failure to do so may
result in explosion, property damage,
electric shock, and/or serious personal
injury.
FLUSH-TO CUTTING (FIG. 10)
The compact design of the saw motor housing and
spindle housing permits extremely close cutting to
floors, corners and other difficult areas.
Blade will begin to feed into material. Always be
sure blade is completely through material before
continuing with pocket cut.
NOTE: In areas where blade visibility is limited, use
the edge of the saw shoe as a guide. Lines for any
given cut should be extended beyond edge of cut
to be made.
METAL CUTTING (FIG. 12)
Your saw has different metal cutting capacities
depending upon type of blade used and the metal
to be cut. Use a finer blade for ferrous metals
and a coarse blade for non-ferrous materials. In
thin gauge sheet metals it is best to clamp wood
to both sides of sheet. This will insure a clean cut
without excess vibration or tearing of metal. Always
remember not to force cutting blade as this reduces
blade life and causes costly blade breakage.
NOTE: It is generally recommended that when
cutting metals you should spread a thin film of oil or
other lubricant along the line ahead of the saw cut
for easier operation and longer blade life.
MAINTENANCE
Your DEWALT power tool has been designed to
operate over a long period of time with a minimum
of maintenance. Continuous satisfactory operation
depends upon proper tool care and regular cleaning.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
serious personal injury, turn tool
off and disconnect battery pack
before making any adjustments or
removing/installing attachments or
accessories. An accidental start-up
can cause injury.
The charger and battery pack are not serviceable.
There are no serviceable parts inside.
POCKET/PLUNGE CUTTING – WOOD ONLY (FIG. 11)
The initial step in pocket cutting is to measure the
surface area to be cut and mark clearly with a
pencil, chalk or scriber. Use the appropriate blade
for the application. The blade should be longer than
8.89 cm (3-1/2") and should extend past the shoe
and the thickness of the workpiece during the cut.
Insert blade in blade clamp.
Next, tip the saw backward until the back edge
of the shoe is resting on the work surface and the
blade clears the work surface (position 1, fig. 11).
Now switch motor on, and allow saw to come up to
speed. Grip saw firmly with both hands and begin
a slow, deliberate upward swing with the handle
of the saw, keeping the bottom of the shoe firmly
in contact with the workpiece (position 2, fig. 11).
14
Lubrication
