Electrical safety
a.Power tool plugs must match the
outlet. Never modify the plug in
any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with grounded power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce risk of electric
shock.
b.Avoid body contact with grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797
Page 2
c.Do not expose power tools to rain
or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d.Prevent unintentional starting.
Ensure the switch is in the offposition 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.
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.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.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.Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times.
This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
f.If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI) protected supply. Use of
a GFCI reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3.
g.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.
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 safety equipment. Always
wear ANSI-approved 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.
c.Keep guards in place and in good
working order.
Item 40315
h.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.
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.
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.
For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797
Page 3
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.
Vibration Safety
This tool vibrates during use.
Repeated or long-term exposure to
vibration may cause temporary or
permanent physical injury, particularly
to the hands, arms and shoulders. To
reduce the risk of vibration-related
injury:
1.
Anyone using vibrating tools regularly
or for an extended period should
first be examined by a doctor and
then have regular medical checkups to ensure medical problems are
not being caused or worsened from
use. Pregnant women or people
who have impaired blood circulation
to the hand, past hand injuries,
nervous system disorders, diabetes,
or Raynaud’s Disease should not
use this tool. If you feel any medical
or physical symptoms related to
vibration (such as tingling, numbness,
and white or blue fingers), seek
medical advice as soon as possible.
2.
Do not smoke during use. Nicotine
reduces the blood supply to the
hands and fingers, increasing the risk
of vibration-related injury.
3.
Wear suitable gloves to reduce the
vibration effects on the user.
4.
Use tools with the lowest vibration
when there is a choice between
different processes.
5.
Include vibration-free periods each
day of work.
6.
Grip tool as lightly as possible (while
still keeping safe control of it). Let
the tool do the work.
7.
To reduce vibration, maintain the tool
as explained in this manual. If any
abnormal vibration occurs, stop use
immediately.
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.
5.

GROUNDING
TO PREVENT
ELECTRIC SHOCK
AND DEATH FROM
INCORRECT GROUNDING
WIRE CONNECTION:
Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not
modify the power cord plug
provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong
from the plug. Do not use the
tool if the power cord or plug
is damaged. If damaged, have
it repaired by a service facility

Grounded Tools: Tools with Three
Prong Plugs
1.
This Tile Saw comes with a
3-prong power cord.
2.
Tools marked with “Grounding
Required” have a three wire cord
and three prong grounding plug.
The plug must be connected to a
properly grounded outlet. If the tool
should electrically malfunction or
break down, grounding provides a
low resistance path to carry electricity
away from the user, reducing the risk
of electric shock. (See 3-Prong Plug
and Outlet.)
3.
4.
The grounding prong in the plug is
connected through the green wire
inside the cord to the grounding
system in the tool. The green wire
in the cord must be the only wire
connected to the tool’s grounding
system and must never be attached
to an electrically “live” terminal. (See
3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)
The tool must be plugged into
an appropriate outlet, properly
installed and grounded in
accordance with all codes
and ordinances. The plug and
outlet should look like those in the
preceding illustration. (See 3-Prong
Plug and Outlet.)
Item 40315
Double Insulated Tools: Tools
with Two Prong Plugs
1.
Tools marked “Double Insulated”
do not require grounding. They
have a special double insulation
system which satisfies OSHA
requirements and complies with the
applicable standards of Underwriters
Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian
Standard Association, and the
National Electrical Code. (See
Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
2.
Double insulated tools may be used
in either of the 120 volt outlets shown
in the preceding illustration. (See
Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
Extension Cords
1.
Grounded tools require a three wire
extension cord. Double Insulated
tools can use either a two or three
wire extension cord.
2.
As the distance from the supply
outlet increases, you must use a
heavier gauge extension cord. Using
extension cords with inadequately
sized wire causes a serious drop in
voltage, resulting in loss of power and
possible tool damage.
(See Table A.) The smaller the
gauge number of the wire, the
greater the capacity of the cord. For
example, a 14 gauge cord can carry

Page 10
a higher current than a 16 gauge
cord. (See Table A.)
3.
4.
5.
Symbology
When using more than one extension
cord to make up the total length,
make sure each cord contains at
least the minimum wire size required.
(See Table A.)
If you are using one extension cord
for more than one tool, add the
nameplate amperes and use the sum
to determine the required minimum
cord size. (See Table A.)
If you are using an extension cord
outdoors, make sure it is marked with
the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to
indicate it is acceptable for outdoor
use.
6.
Make sure the extension cord is
properly wired and in good electrical
condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by
a qualified electrician before using it.
7.
Protect the extension cords from
sharp objects, excessive heat, and
damp or wet areas.
