GENERAL SAFETY RULES
n Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
n Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
n Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
n Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
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
n Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
n 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.
n Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
TOOL USE AND CARE
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
n 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.
n Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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, petroleum-based
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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
n 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.
n Use battery operated tool only with specifically
designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
n Use battery only with charger listed.

or 140237021
n 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
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.
n 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.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
n 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 Instructions may create a risk of shock
or injury.
n Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by
unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will also
make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock
the operator.
n Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire
or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and possibly injury.
n 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.
n 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.
n Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode 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.
n Always wear safety glasses with side shields.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They
are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of eye injury.
n Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet
location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock.
n Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of serious personal injury.
n For best results, your battery tool should be charged
in a location where the temperature is more than
50°F but less than 100°F. Do not store outside or in
vehicles.
n Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during
extended periods of operation. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
n 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.
n Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, battery leakage may occur. If liquid comes in contact with
your skin, wash immediately with soap and water, then
neutralize with lemon juice or vinegar. If liquid gets
into your eyes, flush them with clean water for at least
10 minutes, then seek immediate medical attention.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal
injury.

damage to the charger if metal items should fall into the
opening. It also will help prevent damage to the charger
during a power surge.
n Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped
on, tripped over, come in contact with sharp edges
or moving parts or otherwise subjected to damage or
stress. This will reduce the risk of accidental falls, which
could cause injury, and damage to the cord, which could
result in electric shock.
n Risk of electric shock. Do not touch uninsulated portion
of output connector or uninsulated battery terminal.
n Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use this
tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these
instructions also to prevent misuse of the product and
possible injury.
n Keep cord and charger from heat to prevent
damage to housing or internal parts.
n Do not let gasoline, oils, petroleum-based products,
etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They contain
chemicals that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.
WARNING:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals
known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to
these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks
that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

When cutting, locate the base of the trimmer over the work
surface and firmly hold the body of the trimmer with your
hand. Make sure the trimmer is running at full speed before
contacting the workpiece.

The trimmer motor and bit revolve in a clockwise direction.

GUIDE OUTSIDE
Feed the trimmer into the workpiece from left to right. When
fed from left to right, the rotation of the bit pulls the trimmer against the workpiece. If fed in the opposite direction,
the rotation forces of the spinning bit will tend to throw the
trimmer away from the workpiece, causing kickback. This
could result in loss of control of the trimmer.
THRUST
ROTATION
Because of the extremely high speed of bit rotation during
a proper feeding operation, there is very little kickback to
contend with under normal conditions. However, should the
bit strike a knot, hard grain, foreign object, etc. that would
affect the normal progress of the cutting action, there will
be a slight kickback. Kickback could be sufficient to spoil
the trueness of your cut if you are not prepared. Such a
kickback is always in the direction opposite the direction
of bit rotation.

GUIDE
To guard against kickback, plan your set-up and direction of
feed so that you will always be thrusting the tool—to hold it
against whatever you are using to guide the cut—in the same
direction that the leading edge of the bit is moving. The thrust
should be in a direction that keeps the sharp edges of the
bit continuously biting straight into new (uncut) wood.

OPTIONAL WOODWORKING SUB-BASE
Turn the P600 laminate trimmer into a trim router with the optional woodworking sub-base, Ryobi Part No. 200334001.
The woodworking sub-base accessory with handles is convenient when routing 4 in., 5 in., or 6 in. circular grooves. It
can also be used when routing grooves parallel to the edge
of the workpiece or with ball-bearing piloted bits.
The handles allow you to grasp and hold the trimmer with
two hands, similar to grasping and holding a router.
This trimmer is designed for roundover and other edging
operations up to 3/8 in. It is also useful for rabbeting or dado
operations with straight bits up to a maximum diameter of
1/4 in.

n Do not make a cut that is too heavy in one pass. If a deep
cut is required, make successive passes at increasing
depths with each new pass until you reach the desired
groove depth.
WARNING:
If the desired depth of cut is greater than can be safely
cut in one pass, make cuts in two or more passes. Do
not remove more than 1/8 in. in a single pass. Excessive
depth of cut can result in loss of control and the possibility
of serious personal injury.

OPERATION
PROPER RATE OF FEED
Clean smooth trimming and edge shaping can be done only
when the bit is revolving at a relatively high speed and is taking very small bites to produce tiny, cleanly-severed chips. If
the trimmer is forced to move forward too fast, the speed of
the bit becomes slower than normal in relation to its forward
movement. As a result, the bit must take bigger bites as it
revolves. Bigger bites mean bigger chips and a rougher finish.
Bigger chips also require more power, which could result in
overheating of the motor and lower battery life.
Under extreme force-feeding conditions, the relative speed
of the bit can become so slow – and the bites it has to take
so large – that chips will be partially knocked off rather than
fully cut off. This will result in splintering and gouging of the
workpiece and will likely damage the tool.
Trimming and edge shaping depend upon careful set-up and
selecting the proper feed rate.
The proper feed rate is dependent upon:
• The hardness and moisture content of the workpiece
• The depth of cut. It is necessary that you do not exceed
1/8 in. depth of cut for proper rate of feed.
• The cutting diameter of the bit. Maximum bit size for
roundover and edging operations is 3/8 in. max. Maximum
straight bit size for rabbeting and dado operations is 1/4
in.
For edge shaping in soft woods such as pine, a faster rate
of feed can be used. When edge shaping in hardwoods
such as oak, a slower rate of feed will be required. In all
wood types, a slower rate of feed is required when cutting
shallow grooves.
Several factors will help you select the proper rate of feed.
• Choose a rate that does not slow down the trimmer motor.
TOO SLOW
• Choose the rate of feed at which the bit advances firmly
and surely to produce a continuous spiral of uniform chips
or a smooth trim edge on laminate.
• Listen to the sound of the trimmer motor. A high-pitched,
strained sound means you are feeding too fast.
TOO FAST
• Check the progress of each cut. Too-slow feeding can
cause the trimmer to take off in a wrong direction from
the intended line of cut. Force-feeding increases the strain
of holding the tool and can result in damage to the tool.
• Notice the chips being produced as you cut. If the trimmer is fed too slowly, it will scorch or burn the wood. If
the trimmer is fed too fast, it will take large chips out of
the wood and leave gouge marks.
Fig. 15
Always test a cut on scrap piece of the workpiece wood
or laminate before you begin. Always grasp and hold the
trimmer firmly when trimming.
TOO SLOW FEEDING
See Figure 15.
When the trimmer is advanced into the work too slowly it
scrapes away sawdust-like particles instead of cleanly cutting into the workpiece. Scraping produces heat, which can
glaze, burn, or mar the cut, and can overheat the bit. Dull
bits can also contribute to scraping and burning.
It is more difficult to control a trimmer when the bit is scraping instead of cutting. With practically no load on the motor,
the bit will be revolving near top RPM. When feeding too
slowly, the bit will have a greater than normal tendency to
bounce off the sides of the cut, especially if the wood has
a pronounced grain with hard and soft areas. The cut that
results may have rippled sides instead of straight.
When using the largest recommended straight bit (1/4 in.) in
any type of wood, maintain a maximum cutting depth of 1/8
in. and a very slow feed rate to achieve the best quality cut.
A cross-grain cut requires a slower pace than an identical
cut with the grain in the same workpiece.
There is no fixed rule. Proper feed rate is learned through
practice and use.
FORCE FEEDING
See Figure 15.
The trimmer is an extremely high-speed tool (26,000/min.),
and will make clean, smooth cuts if allowed to run freely
without the overload of a forced feed. Three things that cause
force feeding are bit size, depth of cut, and workpiece characteristics. The larger the bit or the deeper the cut, the more
slowly the trimmer should be moved forward. If the wood is
very hard, knotty, gummy or damp, the operation must be
slowed still more.
18
OPERATION
DEPTH OF CUT
See Figure 16.
Depth of cut affects the rate of feed and the quality of a cut.
Using the proper depth of cut can lessen the possibility of
damage to the trimmer motor and bit.
A deeper cut requires a slower feed than a shallow one. Making a cut that is too deep will slow the feed so that the bit is
scraping, rather than cutting, and is not recommended.
A too-deep cut can cause smaller bits to be broken off.
bits that are 1/16 in. in diameter are easily broken off when
subjected to too much side thrust. A larger bit is not as likely
to break, but attempting a cut that is too deep may result in
a rough cut, and may make it difficult to guide and control
the bit as desired.
It is necessary that you do not exceed 1/8 in. depth of cut
in a single pass, regardless of the bit size or the softness
or condition of the workpiece. This will result in a higher
quality cut.
To make deeper cuts, it is necessary to make as many successive passes as required, lowering the bit 1/8 in for each
new pass. To save time, perform all the cutting necessary at
one depth setting, then lower the bit for the next pass. This will
assure uniform depth when the final pass is completed.
