POWER TOOL SAFETY
! WARNING: Read all safety warnings
and instructions. Failure to follow the warnings
and instructions may result in electric shock, fire
and/or serious injury.
If operating a power tool in a damp location
is unavoidable, use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of a ground fault
circuit interrupter (GFCI) reduces the risk of
electric shock.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
Personal safety
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.
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.
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.
Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
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 energizing power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
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.
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.
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
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.
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.
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 dustrelated hazards.
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.

POWER TOOL SAFETY
Power tool use and care
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.
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.
Battery tool use and care
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.
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.
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.
Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any other
battery packs may create a risk of injury and
fire.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
Service
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.
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.
Hold power 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.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
! WARNING: Know your circular saw. Do
not plug the charger into the power source
or install a battery in the tool until you have
read and understand this Instruction Manual.
Learn the tool’s 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.
Hold power 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 also make exposed metal parts of the
power tool “live” and shock the operator.
When ripping always use a straight edge
guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance of the blade binding.
Always wear eye protection. Any
power tool can throw foreign
objects into your eyes and cause
permanent eye damage.
ALWAYS wear safety goggles (not glasses) that
comply with ANSI safety standard Z87.1.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant
lenses. They ARE NOT safety glasses.
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.
! WARNING: Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could cause
serious injury when they break.
CAUSES AND OPERATOR PREVENTION OF
KICKBACK
Always keep hands out of the path of the saw
blade. Avoid awkward hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause your hand to move into
the path of the saw blade.
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;
! DANGER: Keep hands away from
cutting area and the blade. Keep your
second hand on the tool. If both hands are
holding the saw, they cannot be cut by the
blade.
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.
Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The
guard cannot protect you from the blade below
the workpiece.
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:
Adjust the cutting depth according to the
thickness of the workpiece. Less than a full
tooth of the blade teeth should be visible below
the workpiece or approximately 3/8" (10 mm).
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.
Maintain a firm grip with both hands on the
saw and position your arms to resist
kickback forces. Position your body to the
left or right 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.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
CAUSES AND OPERATOR PREVENTION OF
KICKBACK – cont’d
Check the operation of the lower guard
spring. If the guard and the spring are not
operating properly, they must be serviced
before use. The lower guard may operate
sluggishly due to damaged parts, gummy
deposits, or a build-up of debris.
When the 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.
The 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 the blade enters the material, the
lower guard must be released. For all other
sawing, the lower guard should operate
automatically.
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 the saw blades are binding, it may
walk up or kickback from the workpiece as the
saw is restarted.
Always observe that the lower guard is
covering the blade before placing saw down
on the bench or on the 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 the switch is released.
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.
Never operate the saw while it is being carried
to another location. The blade guard may be
open and potentially cause serious injury.
Do not use dull or damaged blades.
Unsharpened or improperly set blades produce
narrow kerf causing excessive friction, blade
binding and kickback.
If the switch fails to turn the saw ON or OFF
properly, stop using it immediately and have the
saw switch repaired.
ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
Always allow the saw to reach full speed before
beginning the cut.
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.
Never use the side of the blade for cutting.
When making horizontal cuts, make sure the
weight of the tool is not forcing the side of the
blade to do the cutting. This will reduce the risk
of kickback.
Check the lower guard for proper closing
before each use. Do not operate the saw if
the lower guard does not move freely and
close instantly. Never clamp or tie the lower
guard into the open position. If the saw is
accidentally dropped, the lower guard may be
damaged. 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 depths of cuts.
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects
in the area of the workpiece to be cut.
Never lay workpiece on hard surfaces like
concrete, stone, etc. The protruding blade may
cause tool to jump.
! DANGER: To avoid injury from
accidental starting, always remove the plug
from the power source before making any
adjustments and before installing or
removing a saw blade.

SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES –
cont’d
When replacing the blade, make sure the
replacement blade is 5½" (14 cm) in diameter
and is rated for at least 3,800 RPM. Installing
an incorrect blade will result in possible injury
and poor cutting action.
After changing a blade or making
adjustments, make sure the blade clamp
screw is securely tightened. Loose blades
and adjustment devices will be violently thrown.
Never touch the blade during or immediately
after use. After use the blade is too hot to be
safely touched with bare hands.
! DANGER: Always remove the battery when
changing the blade.

While holding the lock-out switch in the
pressed position, squeeze the trigger
switch to start the saw.
3.
Once the saw starts, release the lock-out
switch. The saw will remain running until
the trigger switch is released.
4.
Make sure there are no nails, screws,
clamps or foreign materials in the path of
the saw blade.
4.
To turn the saw OFF, release the trigger
switch.
5.
With both hands firmly gripping the saw,
and with the blade NOT in contact with the
surface to be cut, start the saw by pressing
the lock-off button and then the trigger
switch.
6.
Once the saw has reached full speed,
place the front edge of the sole plate on the
workpiece and gradually bring the moving
blade into contact with the workpiece at the
appropriate location.
NOTE: To re-start the saw, the lock-out switch
must be pressed again before the trigger switch
is squeezed to start the saw.
MATERIALS THAT YOU CAN CUT
The circular saw is a versatile saw that allows
you to cut many different types of materials.
Some of the materials include:
● Wood products such as lumber, hardwood,
plywood, composit board and panelling
● Drywall
● Masonite and plastic
NOTE: To align the saw blade with the cutting
mark, use the guide marks on the front of the
sole plate (Fig. 11) and the laser line. Use the 0°
cutting mark (1) for right angle cuts. Use only
the 45° mark (2) for 45° cuts. The 45° mark will
allow for the extra material needed for the angle
cut. Always make a test cut on a scrap
workpiece before cutting the new material.
NOTE: There are several different types of
blades available. Generally, blades with carbidetipped teeth cut better and stay sharp longer.
Tooth count and configuration are also
important. High tooth counts cut slower, and are
best suited for making smooth cuts on thinner
materials such as panelling. Use the correct
blade for your application.
GENERAL CUTTING
1.
Make any adjustments to the saw before
installing the battery. Adjustments include
cutting depth, cutting angle and rip guide (if
installed).
2.
Clearly mark the workpiece to locate the
position of the cut.
3.
Hold a smaller workpiece with a vise.
Clamp a larger workpiece to a workbench
or table.

ASSEMBLY AND OPERATING
GENERAL CUTTING – cont’d
! WARNING: Do not force the circular
saw. Use only enough force to keep the
blade cutting at full speed. Excessive
pressure on the blade will cause it to slow
down and overheat, resulting in poor cut
quality and damage to the motor.
RIP GUIDE CUTTING
1.
Set the rip guide foot at the required width
(Fig. 9).
NOTE: When starting the cut, make sure the
blade is parallel to the edge of the workpiece
and the rip guide foot is against the edge of the
workpiece.
2.
Proceed with the cut as outlined in
"GENERAL CUTTING" above.
NOTE: As you move the saw through the
workpiece, make sure the guide foot stays in
contact with the workpiece.

MAINTENANCE
! WARNING: Always wear safety goggles
or safety glasses with side shields during all
cutting operations. It is critical that you also
wear safety goggles or safety glasses with
side shields and a dust mask while blowing
dust out of the reciprocating saw with an air
jet. Failure to take these safety precautions
could result in permanent eye or lung
damage.
GENERAL
! WARNING: When servicing, use only
identical replacement parts. The use of any
other part may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
DO NOT use solvents when cleaning plastic
parts. Plastics are susceptible to damage from
various types of commercial solvents and may
be damaged by their use. Use a clean cloth to
remove dirt, dust, oil, grease etc.
LUBRICATION
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with
a sufficient amount of high-grade lubricant for
the life of the unit under normal conditions.
Therefore, no further lubrication is required.
! WARNING: Do not allow brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products,
penetrating oils, etc. to come into contact
with plastic parts. They contain chemicals
that can damage, weaken or destroy plastic.
BATTERY PACK REMOVAL AND
PREPARATION FOR RECYCLING
To preserve our natural resources, please
recycle or dispose of batteries properly.
DO NOT abuse power tools. Abusive practices
can damage the tool and the workpiece.
The batteries accompanying this tool may
contain chemicals and metals that are harmful
to the environment. Never dispose of
rechargeable batteries in your normal household
garbage or in landfill sites, because they will add
to the pollution of the environment.
! WARNING: DO NOT attempt to modify
tools or create accessories. Any such
alteration or modification is misuse and
could result in a hazardous condition leading
to possible serious injury. It will also void
the warranty.
Consult your local waste authority for
information regarding available recycling and
disposal options.
! WARNING: Upon removal of the battery
pack, cover the terminals of the battery pack
with electrical tape or heavy-duty adhesive
tape. Never touch both terminals with metal
objects or body parts, because a short
circuit may result. Keep away from children.
Do not attempt to destroy or disassemble
battery pack or remove any of its
components. Rechargeable batteries must
be recycled or disposed of properly. Failure
to comply with these warnings could result
in fire and serious injury.
It has been found that electric tools are
subjected to accelerated wear and possible
premature failure when they are used on
fiberglass boats and sports cars, wallboard,
spackling compounds or plaster. The chips and
grindings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electric tool parts such as bearings,
brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is
not recommended that this tool be used for
extended work on any fiberglass material,
wallboard, spackling compounds or plaster.
During any use on these materials it is
extremely important that the tool is cleaned
frequently by blowing it out with an air jet.
