INTRODUCTION
This tool has many features for making its use more pleasant and enjoyable. Safety, performance, and dependability have
been given top priority in the design of this product making it easy to maintain and operate.
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.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
 Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate
conditions will reduce personal injuries.
 Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the
off-position before plugging in. Carrying power tools
with your finger on the switch or plugging in 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.
 Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry 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 these devices can
reduce dust-related hazards.
 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
power tool in unexpected situations.
WARNING!
Read all instructions. Failure to follow all
instructions listed below may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power
tool” in all of the warnings listed below refers
to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
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.
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
 Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
 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 tools.
 Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
 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.
 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.

BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
SERVICE
 Ensure the switch is in the off position before inserting
battery pack. Inserting the battery pack into power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
 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.
 Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
 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
 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.
WARNING!
To reduce the risk of injury, user must read
instruction manual.
 When servicing a power 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.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
 Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do not
use a battery pack or charger 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.
 If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
only by the manufacturer or by an authorized service
center to avoid risk.
 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 important to support the work properly to minimize
body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
� Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a
“live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live”
and shock the operator.
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 saw misuse and/or incorrect
operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by
taking proper precautions, as given below:
� 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 arbor 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.
 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.
4
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
� 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, center 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 minimize 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.
 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 making a “plunge cut” into
existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding blade
may cut objects that can cause kickback.
 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.
� 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.
� Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during
extended periods of operation. Following this rule will
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.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
 Check damaged parts. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will operate
properly and perform its intended function. Check for
alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that
is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced
by an authorized service center. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of shock, fire, or serious injury.
 Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before
using this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
serious personal injury.
 Do not operate tool while under the influence of drugs,
alcohol, or any medication. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious personal
injury.
 Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire
or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and possibly
injury.
 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.
 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 a location where the temperature is more than
50°F but less than 100°F. Do not store outside or in
vehicles.
 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.
 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. 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
buildup of debris.
� Lower guard should be retracted manually only for
special cuts, such as “plunge cuts” and “compound
cuts.” Raise lower guard by retracting handle. 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.
 Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
power tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious injury.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
NOTE: New 24 Volt lithium-ion battery packs will not
work without first being charged. Before first time use,
charge the battery pack to activate it.
CAUTION:
It is not necessary to drain the battery pack completely
before recharging. Lithium-ion battery packs have no
“memory” and can be recharged at any time. It is therefore
possible to charge the battery pack before extended usage
even if the battery pack is not completely drained of charge.
Use the charge level indicator to determine the amount of
charge in the battery pack.
If at any point during the charging process none
of the LEDs are lit, remove the battery pack from
the charger to avoid damaging the product. DO
NOT insert another battery. Return the charger and
battery to your nearest service center for service
or replacement.
Lithium-ion batteries deliver fade free power for their entire
run time. 24 Volt lithium-ion tools will not gradually lose
power due to decreasing battery charge. Instead, power
from the battery pack will drop from full to zero once the
full charge has been drained from the battery. Once this
happens, your tool’s power drops from full to zero, and
recharging the battery is required.
CAUTION:

SAW BLADES
Fig. 7
LOWER BLADE GUARD
IS IN UP POSITION
WHEN MAKING A CUT
The best of saw blades will not cut efficiently if they are not
kept clean, sharp, and properly set. Using a dull blade will
place a heavy load on the saw and increase the danger of
kickback. Keep extra blades on hand, so that sharp blades
are always available.
Gum and wood pitch hardened on blades will slow the saw
down. Use gum and pitch remover, hot water, or kerosene to
remove these accumulations. DO NOT USE GASOLINE.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
See Figure 8.
The lower blade guard attached to your cordless circular
saw is there for your protection and safety. It should never
be altered for any reason. If it becomes damaged or begins
to return slow or sluggish, do not operate the saw until the
damage has been repaired or replaced. Always leave guard
in operating position when using saw.
BLADE EXPOSED ON
UNDERSIDE OF WORKPIECE
DANGER:
When sawing through workpiece, lower blade
guard does not cover blade on the underside of
workpiece. Since blade is exposed on underside
of workpiece, keep hands and fingers away from
cutting area. Any part of your body coming in
contact with moving blade will result in serious
injury.
Fig. 8
CAUTION:
Never use saw when guard is not operating
correctly. Check the guard for correct operation
before each use. The guard is operating correctly
when it moves freely and readily returns to the
closed position. If you drop the saw, check the
lower blade guard and bumper for damage at all
depth settings before reuse.
15
OPERATION
KICKBACK - BLADE SET TOO DEEP
KICKBACK
See Figures 9 - 12.
Kickback occurs when the blade stalls rapidly and the saw
is driven back towards you. Blade stalling is caused by any
action which pinches the blade in the wood.
WARNING:
To avoid kickback, release switch trigger
immediately if blade binds or saw stalls. Kickback
could cause you to lose control of the saw. Loss
of control can lead to serious injury.
Fig. 9
INCORRECT SUPPORT
To guard against kickback, avoid dangerous practices such
as the following.
 Setting blade depth incorrectly
 Sawing into knots or nails in workpiece
 Twisting the blade while making a cut
 Making a cut with a dull, gummed up, or improperly set
blade
 Supporting the workpiece incorrectly
 Forcing a cut
 Cutting warped or wet lumber
WRONG
Fig. 10
 Operating the tool incorrectly or misusing the tool
CORRECT BLADE DEPTH SETTING = BLADE EXPOSED
1/4 in. MAX OR LESS ON UNDERSIDE OF WORKPIECE
To lessen the chance of kickback, follow these safety practices.
 Keep the blade at the correct depth setting. The depth
setting should not exceed 1/4 in. below the material being
cut.
 Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails before cutting.
Never saw into a knot or nail.
 Make straight cuts. Always use a straight edge guide
when rip cutting. This helps prevent twisting the blade.
 Use clean, sharp, and properly set blades. Never make
cuts with dull blades.
 Support the workpiece properly before beginning a cut.
 Use steady, even pressure when making a cut. Never
force a cut.
1/4 in. MAX
 Do not cut warped or wet lumber.
 Hold the saw firmly with both hands and keep your body
in a balanced position so as to resist the forces if kickback
should occur.

Always keep correct blade depth setting. The correct blade
depth setting for all cuts should not exceed 1/4 in. below
the material to be cut. More blade depth will increase the
chance of kickback and cause the cut to be rough. One
blade tooth below the material to be cut works best for most
efficient cutting action.
