The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has
been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN60745 and may be used to compare one tool with another. It
may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
WARNING: The declared vibration emission level
represents the main applications of the tool. However if
the tool is used for different applications, with different
accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission
may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure
level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should
also take into account the times when the tool is switched
off or when it is running but not actually doing the job.
This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the
total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator
from the effects of vibration such as: maintain the tool
and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation
of work patterns.

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 mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (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.
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 wrench or a key left attached
to a rotating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
e ) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power tool
in unexpected situations.
f ) 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.
g ) 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.
7
English
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 operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Safety Instructions for All Saws
Cutting Procedures
DANGER:
a ) 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.
b ) Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The guard
cannot protect you from the blade below the workpiece.
c ) 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.
d ) 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 minimise
body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
e ) Hold the power tool by 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 shock.
f ) When ripping always use a rip fence or straight edge
guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and reduces the
chance of blade binding.
g ) 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.
h ) 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.
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.

Further Safety Instructions for All Saws
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.
ʵʵ 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.
ʵʵ 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:
a ) 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
English
b )
c )
d )
e )
f )
g )
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.
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.
Lower Guard Function
a ) 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.
b ) 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.
c ) Lower guard should 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.
d ) 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.

WARNING: Do not allow familiarity (gained from
frequent use of your saw) to replace safety rules. Always
remember that a careless fraction of a second is sufficient
to inflict severe injury.
Use clamps or another practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may
lead to loss of control.
Keep your body positioned to either side of the blade,
but not in line with the saw blade. KICKBACK could cause
the saw to jump backwards (see Kickback Causes and
Related Warnings and Kickback).
Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and remove all nails from
lumber before cutting.
Always make sure nothing interferes with the movement
of the lower blade guard.
Install the dust extraction port onto the saw before use.
Accessories must be rated for at least the speed
recommended on the tool warning label. Wheels and
other accessories running over rated speed can fly apart and
cause injury. Accessory ratings must always be above tool
speed as shown on tool nameplate.
Always make sure the saw is clean before using.
Stop using this saw and have it properly serviced if any
unusual noise or abnormal operation occcurs.
Always be sure all components are mounted properly and
securely before using tool.
Always handle the saw blade with care when mounting or
removing it or when removing the diamond knockout.
Always wait until the motor has reached full speed before
starting a cut.
Always keep handles dry, clean and free of oil and grease. Hold
the tool firmly with both hands when in use.
Always be alert at all times, especially during repetitive,
monotonous operations. Always be sure of position of your
hands relative to the blade.
Stay clear of end pieces that may fall after cutting off. They
may be hot, sharp and/or heavy. Serious personal injury
may result.
Residual Risks
In spite of the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual risks
cannot be avoided. These are:
• Impairment of hearing.
• Risk of personal injury due to flying particles.
• Risk of burns due to accessories becoming hot
during operation.
• Risk of personal injury due to prolonged use.

Fully Charged
Wall Mounting
These chargers are designed to be wall mountable or to sit
upright on a table or work surface. If wall mounting, locate the
charger within reach of an electrical outlet, and away from a
corner or other obstructions which may impede air flow. Use
the back of the charger as a template for the location of the
mounting screws on the wall. Mount the charger securely using
drywall screws (purchased separately) at least 25.4 mm long
with a screw head diameter of 7–9 mm, screwed into wood to
an optimal depth leaving approximately 5.5 mm of the screw
exposed. Align the slots on the back of the charger with the
exposed screws and fully engage them in the slots.
Charger Cleaning Instructions
WARNING: Shock hazard. Disconnect the charger
from the AC outlet before cleaning. Dirt and grease
may be removed from the exterior of the charger using a
cloth or soft non-metallic brush. Do not use water or any
cleaning solutions. Never let any liquid get inside the tool;
never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
Hot/Cold Pack Delay*
*The red light will continue to blink, but a yellow indicator light
will be illuminated during this operation. Once the battery pack
has reached an appropriate temperature, the yellow light will
turn off and the charger will resume the charging procedure.
The compatible charger(s) will not charge a faulty battery pack.
The charger will indicate faulty battery by refusing to light.
NOTE: This could also mean a problem with a charger.
If the charger indicates a problem, take the charger and battery
pack to be tested at an authorised service centre.
Hot/Cold Pack Delay
When the charger detects a battery pack that is too hot or too
cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending
charging until the battery pack has reached an appropriate
temperature. The charger then automatically switches to the
pack charging mode. This feature ensures maximum battery
pack life.
A cold battery pack will charge at a slower rate than 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 pack warms.
The DCB118 charger is equipped with an internal fan designed
to cool the battery pack. The fan will turn on automatically
when the battery pack needs to be cooled. Never operate the
charger if the fan does not operate properly or if ventilation slots
are blocked. Do not permit foreign objects to enter the interior
of the charger.
Electronic Protection System
XR Li-Ion tools are designed with an Electronic Protection
System that will protect the battery pack against overloading,
overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic Protection
System engages. If this occurs, place the lithium-ion battery
pack on the charger until it is fully charged.

regulations as prescribed by industry and legal standards which
include UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods; International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous
Goods Regulations, International Maritime Dangerous Goods
(IMDG) Regulations, and the European Agreement Concerning
The International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR).
Lithium-ion cells and batteries have been tested to section 38.3
of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria.
In most instances, shipping a DeWALT battery pack will be
excepted from being classified as a fully regulated Class 9
Hazardous Material. In general, only shipments containing a
lithium-ion battery with an energy rating greater than 100 Watt
Hours (Wh) will require being shipped as fully regulated Class 9.
All lithium-ion batteries have the Watt Hour rating marked on
the pack. Furthermore, due to regulation complexities, DeWALT
does not recommend air shipping lithium-ion battery packs
alone regardless of Watt Hour rating. Shipments of tools with
batteries (combo kits) can be air shipped as excepted if the Watt
Hour rating of the battery pack is no greater than 100 Whr.
Regardless of whether a shipment is considered excepted
or fully regulated, it is the shipper's responsibility to consult
the latest regulations for packaging, labeling/marking and
documentation requirements.

The information provided in this section of the manual is
provided in good faith and believed to be accurate at the time
the document was created. However, no warranty, expressed or
implied, is given. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that its
activities comply with the applicable regulations.
Transporting the FLEXVOLTTM Battery
The DeWALT FLEXVOLTTM battery has two modes: Use
and Transport.
Use Mode: When the FLEXVOLTTM battery stands alone or is in
a DeWALT 18V product, it will operate as an 18V battery. When
the FLEXVOLTTM battery is in a 54V or a 108V (two 54V batteries)
product, it will operate as a 54V battery.
Transport Mode: When the cap is attached to the FLEXVOLTTM
battery, the battery is in Transport mode. Keep the cap for
shipping.
When in Transport mode, strings
of cells are electrically
disconnected within the pack
resulting in 3 batteries with a
lower Watt hour (Wh) rating as compared to 1 battery with a
higher Watt hour rating. This increased quantity of 3 batteries
with the lower Watt hour rating can exempt the pack from
certain shipping regulations that are imposed upon the higher
Watt hour batteries.
For example, the Transport Example of Use and Transport Label Marking
Wh rating might indicate
3 x 36 Wh, meaning 3
batteries of 36 Wh each.
The Use Wh rating might
indicate 108 Wh (1 battery implied).
Storage Recommendations
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry away
from direct sunlight and excess heat or cold. For optimum
battery performance and life, store battery packs at room

subject to variation based on product components, temperature
and end-user application.
14
Cutting Depth Adjustment (Fig. A, D, E)
1. Hold the saw firmly. Lift the depth adjustment locking
lever 3 to move foot plate to obtain the desired depth
of cut.
2. Lower the depth adjustment locking lever and tighten
securely to lock the depth of cut before operating saw.
The length of cut markings on the side of the foot plate are
accurate at full depth of cut only. Setting the saw at the proper
cutting depth keeps blade friction to a minimum, removes
sawdust from between the blade teeth, results in cooler, faster
sawing and reduces the chance of kickback.
For the most efficient cutting action, set the depth adjustment
so that half of a blade tooth will project below the material
to be cut (refer to Figure E). This distance is from the tip of
the tooth 31 to the bottom of the gullet 32 (refer to inset
of Figure E). This keeps blade friction at a minimum, removes
sawdust from the cut, results in cooler, faster sawing and
reduces the chance of kickback. A method for checking for
correct cutting depth is shown in Figure E. Lay a piece of the
material you plan to cut along the side of the blade, as shown,
and observe how much tooth projects beyond the material.
Mounting the Dust Extraction Port (Fig. U, V)
WARNING: The dust extraction port must be installed
onto the saw before use.
WARNING: Risk of dust inhalation. To reduce the risk of
personal injury, ALWAYS wear an approved dust mask.
1. Align the dust extraction port 20 over upper blade guard
34 as shown.
2. Insert the two dust port screws 37 through the dust port
holes 36 and into the upper blade guard holes 35 as show
in Figure A and tighten securely.
The dust extraction adaptor allows you to connect the tool to
an external dust extractor, either using the AirLock™ system
(DWV9000-XJ), or a standard 35 mm dust extractor fitment
(Fig. V).
WARNING: ALWAYS use a vacuum extractor designed
in compliance with the applicable directives regarding
dust emission when sawing wood. Vacuum hoses of most
common vacuum cleaners will fit directly into the dust
extraction outlet.
Bevel Angle Adjustment (Fig. A, F)
The full range of the bevel adjustment is from 0˚ to 53˚.
Detents are located at 22.5˚ and 45˚. The angle quadrant
is graduated in increments of 1˚. On the front of the saw is
a bevel angle adjustment mechanism which consists of a
calibrated angle quadrant 10 and a bevel adjustment lever 9 .
The angle quadrant allows for coarse adjustment 16 or fine
adjustment 17 to achieve better accuracy in cutting.
To Set the Saw for a Bevel Cut
1. Lift the bevel adjustment lever 9 and tilt foot plate to the
desired angle by aligning the pointer with the desired
angle mark.
2. Push the bevel adjustment lever down and tighten securely
to lock the angle.
Base Plate Adjustment (Fig. F, G)
Your base plate has been factory set to assure that the blade is
perpendicular to the base plate. If after extended use you need
to re-align the blade, follow the directions below:
Adjusting for 90 Degree Cuts
1. Return the saw to 0 degrees bevel.
2. Place the saw on its side, and retract the lower guard.
3. Set the depth of cut to 51 mm.
4. Loosen the bevel adjustment lever (Fig. F, 9 ). Place a square
against the blade and the base plate as shown in Figure G.
5. Using a hex key ( 21 , Fig. A), turn the set screw ( 25 , Fig. G)
on the underside of the base plate until the blade and
the base plate are both in flush contact with the square.
Retighten the bevel adjustment lever.
Adjusting Bevel Adjustment Lever (Fig. F)
It may be desirable to adjust the bevel adjustment lever 9 . It
may loosen in time and hit the base plate before tighten­ing.
To tighten the lever:
1. Hold the bevel adjustment lever 9 and loosen the bevel
adjustment lever locknut ( 24 , Fig. F).
2. Adjust the bevel adjustment lever by rotating it in the
desired direction about 1/8 of a revolution.
3. Retighten nut.
Kerf Indicator (Fig. H)
The front of the saw foot plate 5 has a 0˚ kerf indicator 7 and
a 45˚ kerf indicator 8 for vertical and bevel cutting. The kerf
indicators enable you to guide the saw along the cutting lines
penciled on the workpiece.
The indicator aligns with the left (outer) side of the saw blade.
The moving blade making the slot or “kerf” cut falls to the right
of the indicator. Position the saw along the penciled cutting line
so that the kerf falls into the waste or surplus material. Marking
indicators on the front of the foot plate are at 13 mm intervals
for additional cutting guides.
Kerf indicators 18 are also located on the inside of the foot
plate to keep the saw square when cutting.
Cut Length Indicator (Fig. I)
The markings on the side of the foot plate 5 show the length of
the slot being cut into the material at the full depth of the cut.
The markings are in increments of 3.2 mm.

diamond-shaped arbor centre is exposed. Only blades with a
diamond-shaped arbor centre can be used on this saw.
NOTICE: Never install a blade without removing the
knockout. Lack of blade engagement will cause the blade
to come into contact with other parts of the saw causing
tool damage.
15
English
To Remove Knockout
WARNING: ALWAYS use eye protection. All users and
bystanders must wear eye protection that conforms to
ANSI Z87.1.
WARNING: Make sure that bevel adjusting locking lever
is tight and secure after using it to remove knockout. If
blade adjustment shifts while cutting it may cause binding
and kickback.
Place the round centre hole of the blade into the notch 25 on
the top of the bevel adjustment lever 9 . Grasping the saw and
blade firmly, pull until the knockout pops out. The diamondshaped arbor centre is now exposed.

the arrow on the outer clamp washer 27 .
2. Remove outer clamp washer 27 .
3. Using the lower blade guard retracting lever 4 , retract the
lower blade guard 6 .
IMPORTANT: When retracting the lower blade guard to
install the blade, check the condition and operation of the
lower blade guard to assure that it is working properly. Make
sure it moves freely and does not touch the blade, foot plate
or any other part, in all angles and depths of cut.
4. Place blade 28 on saw spindle 29 against the inner clamp
washer 30 , making sure that the blade will rotate in the
proper direction (the direction of the rotation arrow on the
saw blade and the teeth must point in the same direction as
the direction of rotation arrow on the lower blade guard).
IMPORTANT: Always ensure the diamond-shaped arbor
centre of the blade aligns with the raised diamond-shaped
arbor centre on the outer clamp washer.
NOTE: Do not assume that the printing on the saw blade will
always be facing you when properly installed.
5. Place outer clamp washer 27 on saw spindle 29 with the
large flat surface against the blade and the wording on the
outer clamp washer facing you as shown in Figure N.

5. Install new blade as previously described.
6. Clean any sawdust that may have accumulated in the guard
or clamp washer area. Check the condition and operation
of the lower blade guard as previously outlined. Do not
lubricate this area.
7. Select the proper blade for the application (refer to Blades).
Always use blades that are the correct size (190 mm
diameter) with the proper size and shape centre hole
for mounting on the saw spindle. Always assure that the
maximum recommended speed (rpm) on the saw blade
meets or exceeds the speed (rpm) of the saw.
Lower Blade Guard
WARNING: The lower blade guard is a safety feature
which reduces the risk of serious personal injury.
Never use the saw if the lower guard is missing,
damaged, misassembled or not working properly.
Do not rely on the lower blade guard to protect you
under all circumstances. Your safety depends on
following all warnings and precautions as well as
proper operation of the saw. Check lower guard for
proper closing before each use as outlined in Safety
Instructions for All Saws. If the lower blade guard
is missing or not working properly, have the saw
serviced before using. To assure product safety and
reliability, repair, maintenance and adjustment
should be performed by an authorised service centre
or other qualified service organisation, always using
identical replacement parts.
Blades
WARNING: To minimise the risk of eye injury, always
use eye protection. Carbide is a hard but brittle material.
Foreign objects in the workpiece such as wire or nails
can cause tips to crack or break. Only operate saw when
proper saw blade guard is in place. Mount blade securely
in proper rotation before using, and always use a clean,
sharp blade.
Do not use abrasive wheels or blades. A dull blade will cause
slow, inefficient cutting resulting in overload to the saw motor,
excessive splintering and could increase the possibility of
kickback. Please refer to the following table to determine the
correct size replacement blade for your model saw.

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
English
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 more likely to occur when any of the following
conditions exist.
1. IMPROPER WORKPIECE SUPPORT
a. Sagging or improper lifting of the cut off piece can cause
pinching of the blade and lead to kickback (Fig. Q).
b. Cutting through material supported at the outer ends
only can cause kickback. As the material weakens it sags,
closing down the kerf and pinching the blade.
c. Cutting off a cantilevered or overhanging piece of
material from the bottom up in a vertical direction
can cause kickback. The falling cut off piece can pinch
the blade.
d. Cutting off long narrow strips (as in ripping) can cause
kickback. The cut off strip can sag or twist closing the kerf
and pinching the blade.
e. Snagging the lower guard on a surface below the
material being cut momentarily reduces operator control.
The saw can lift partially out of the cut increasing the
chance of blade twist.
2. IMPROPER DEPTH OF CUT SETTING ON SAW
a. To make the most efficient cut, the blade should protrude
only far enough to expose half of a tooth as shown in
Figure E. This allows the foot plate to support the blade
and minimises twisting and pinching in the material. See
the section titled Cutting Depth Adjustment.
3. BLADE TWISTING (MISALIGNMENT IN CUT)
a. Pushing harder to cut through a knot, a nail, or a hard
grain area can cause the blade to twist.
b. Trying to turn the saw in the cut (trying to get back on
the marked line) can cause blade twist.
c. Over-reaching or operating the saw with poor body
control (out of balance), can result in twisting the blade.
d. Changing hand grip or body position while cutting can
result in blade twist.
e. Backing up the saw to clear blade can lead to twist.
4. MATERIALS THAT REQUIRE EXTRA ATTENTION
a. Wet lumber
b. Green lumber (material freshly cut or not kiln dried)
c. Pressure treated lumber (material treated with
preservatives or anti-rot chemicals)
5. USE OF DULL OR DIRTY BLADES
a. Dull blades cause increased loading of the saw. To
compensate, an operator will usually push harder which
further loads the unit and promotes twisting of the blade
in the kerf. Worn blades may also have insufficient body
clearance which increases the chance of binding and
increased loading.
6. LIFTING THE SAW WHEN MAKING BEVEL CUT
a. Bevel cuts require special operator attention to proper
cutting techniques - especially guidance of the saw. Both
blade angle to the foot plate and greater blade surface
in the material increase the chance for binding and
misalignment (twist) to occur.
7. RESTARTING A CUT WITH THE BLADE TEETH JAMMED
AGAINST THE MATERIAL
a. The saw should be brought up to full operating speed
before starting a cut or restarting a cut after the unit has
been stopped with the blade in the kerf. Failure to do so
can cause stalling and kickback.
Any other conditions which could result in pinching, binding,
twisting, or misalignment of the blade could cause kickback.
Refer to the sections on adjustments and operation for
procedures and techniques that will minimize the occurrence
of kickback.
Workpiece Support (Fig. O–Q)
WARNING: It is important to support the work properly
and to hold the saw firmly to prevent loss of control which
could cause personal injury. Figure O illustrates proper
hand support of the saw. Maintain a firm grip with both
hands on the saw and position your body and arm to
allow you to resist kickback if it occurs.
Figure O shows proper sawing position. Note that hands are
kept away from cutting area. To avoid kickback, DO support
board or panel NEAR the cut (Fig. P). DON’T support board or
panel away from the cut (Fig. Q).
Place the work with its “good” side—the one on which
appearance is most important—down. The saw cuts upward,
so any splintering will be on the work face that is up when you
cut it.
Cutting (Fig. O)
WARNING: Never attempt to use this tool by resting it
upside down on a work surface and bringing the material
to the tool. Always securely clamp the workpiece and
bring the tool to the workpiece, securely holding the tool
with two hands as shown in Figure O.
Place the wider portion of the saw foot plate on that part of
the work piece which is solidly supported, not on the section
that will fall off when the cut is made. As examples, Figure O
illustrates the RIGHT way to cut off the end of a board. Always
clamp work. Don’t try to hold short pieces by hand! Remember
to support cantilevered and overhanging material. Use caution
when sawing material from below.
Be sure saw is up to full speed before blade contacts material
to be cut. Starting saw with blade against material to be cut
or pushed forward into kerf can result in kickback. Push the
saw forward at a speed which allows the blade to cut without
laboring. Hardness and toughness can vary even in the same
piece of material, and knotty or damp sections can put a heavy
load on the saw. When this happens, push the saw more slowly,
but hard enough to keep working without much decrease
in speed. Forcing the saw can cause rough cuts, inaccuracy,
kickback, and over-heating of the motor. Should your cut begin
17
English
to go off the line, don’t try to force it back on. Release the switch
and allow blade to come to a complete stop. Then you can
withdraw the saw, sight anew, and start a new cut slightly inside
the wrong one. In any event, withdraw the saw if you must shift
the cut. Forcing a correction inside the cut can stall the saw and
lead to kickback.
IF SAW STALLS, RELEASE THE TRIGGER AND BACK THE SAW
UNTIL IT IS LOOSE. BE SURE BLADE IS STRAIGHT IN THE CUT AND
CLEAR OF THE CUTTING EDGE BEFORE RESTARTING.
As you finish a cut, release the trigger and allow the blade to
stop before lifting the saw from the work. As you lift the saw,
the spring-tensioned telescoping guard will automatically close
under the blade. Remember the blade is exposed until this
occurs. Never reach under the work for any reason. When you
have to retract the telescoping guard manually (as is necessary
for starting pocket cuts) always use the retracting lever.
NOTE: When cutting thin strips, be careful to ensure that small
cutoff pieces don’t hang up on inside of lower guard.
Ripping (Fig. R, S)
Ripping is the process of cutting wider boards into narrower
strips – cutting grain lengthwise. Hand guiding is more difficult
for this type of sawing and the use of either DeWALT DW3278
rip guide or DWS5100 dual port rip guide is recommended.
Pocket Cutting (Fig. T)
WARNING: Never tie the blade guard in a raised
position. Never move the saw backwards when
pocket cutting. This may cause the unit to raise up
off the work surface which could cause injury.
A pocket cut is one that is made in a floor, wall, or other
flat surface.
1. Adjust the saw foot plate so the blade cuts at desired depth.
2. Tilt the saw forward and rest front of the foot plate on
material to be cut.
3. Using the retracting lever, retract lower blade guard to an
upward position. Lower rear of foot plate until blade teeth
almost touch cutting line.
4. Release the blade guard (its contact with the work will keep
it in position to open freely as you start the cut). Remove
hand from guard lever and firmly grip auxiliary handle 13 ,
as shown in Figure T. Position your body and arm to allow
you to resist kickback if it occurs.
5. Make sure blade is not in contact with cutting surface before
starting saw.
6. Start the motor and gradually lower the saw until its foot
plate rests flat on the material to be cut. Advance saw along
the cutting line until cut is completed.
7. Release trigger and allow blade to stop completely before
withdrawing the blade from the material.
8. When starting each new cut, repeat as above.
