operator’s manual for recommended accessories. The
use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury.
■■ Keep guards in place and in good working order.
■■ Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form habit
of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches
are removed from tool before turning it on.
■■ Never stand on tool. Serious injury could occur if
the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally
contacted.
■■ Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas and benches
invite accidents. Do not leave tools or pieces of wood
on the saw while it is in operation.
■■ Check for damaged parts. 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 must be properly repaired or replaced by
an authorised service centre to avoid risk of personal
injury.
■■ Do not use in dangerous environments. Do not
use power tools in damp or wet locations or expose to
rain. Keep the work area well lit. Do not use tool in the
presence of flammable liquids or gases.
■■ Use the right direction of feed. Feed work into a
blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of blade
or cutter only.
■■ Keep children and visitors away. All visitors should
wear safety glasses and be kept a safe distance from
work area. Do not let visitors contact tool or extension
cord while operating.
■■ Never leave tool running unattended. Turn the
power off. Don’t leave tool until it comes to a complete
stop.
■■ Do not force tool. It will do the job better and safer at
the feed rate for which it was designed.
■■ Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
cutting operation is dusty.
■■ Use right tool. Don’t force the tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed for. Don’t use it for a purpose
not intended.
■■ Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during
extended periods of operation.
■■ Use the proper extension cord. Make sure your
extension cord is in good condition. Use only a cord
heavy enough to carry the current your product will
draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.
■■ Do not abuse cord. Never yank cord to disconnect
from receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, and
sharp edges.
■■ Always keep the blade guard in place and in
working order.
■■ Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing, gloves,
neckties, or jewellery. They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonskid
footwear (rubber soled boots) are recommended when
working outdoors. Also wear protective hair covering
to contain long hair.
■■ Keep hands away from cutting area. Keep hands
away from blade. Do not reach underneath work or
around or over the blade while blade is rotating. Do not
attempt to remove cut material when blade is moving.
■■ Blade coasts after being turned off.
■■ Always wear safety glasses with side shields.

SPEED AND WIRING
The no-load speed of this tool is approximately 2,900 rpm.
This speed is not constant and decreases under a load
or with lower voltage. For voltage, the wiring in a shop is
as important as the horsepower rating of the motor. A line
intended only for lights cannot properly carry a power tool
9
motor. Wire that is heavy enough for a short distance will
be too light for a greater distance. A line that can support
one power tool may not be able to support two or three
tools.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections
dry and off the ground. Do not touch the plug with wet
hands.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This product must be grounded. In the event of a

MAINTENANCE
CHANGING THE TILE CUTTING BLADE
See Figure 18.
WARNING
When servicing, use only identical replacement parts.
Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
WARNING
A 178 mm tile cutting blade is the maximum blade
capacity of the saw. Never use a blade that is too thick
to allow blade flange to engage with the flats on the
spindle. Larger blades will come in contact with the
blade guard, while thicker blades will prevent the blade
bolt from securing the blade on the spindle. Either of
these situations could result in a serious accident and
can cause serious personal injury.
WARNING
Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side
shields during power tool operation or when blowing
dust. If operation is dusty, also wear a dust mask.
