at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
Tool Use and Care
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and safer
at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A
tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch
in the locked or off position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing tool.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of the reach of children and other
untrained persons. 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
sparks, burns, or a fire.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that may
affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool
serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the

Additional Rules For Safe Operation
Additional Specific Safety Rules
■
■
■
Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual carefully. Learn its 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.
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use one
heavy enough to carry the current your product will
draw. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is recommended for an extension cord 100 feet or less in
length. A cord exceeding 100 feet is not recommended. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The
smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.

Important Rules For Battery Tools
■
■
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.
Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire
or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and possible injury.
■
■
WARNING:
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, fire, or serious personal injury.
Your battery tool should be charged in a location
where the temperature is more than 50°F but less
than 100°F. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
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.

DANGER! Keep hands away from cutting area and
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.
Keep your body positioned to either side of the saw
blade, but not in line with the saw blade. KICKBACK
could cause the saw to jump backwards.
Do not reach underneath the work. The guard cannot
protect you from the blade below the work.
Check the 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 and 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 and condition 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 “Pocket Cuts” and “Compound
Cuts”. Raise lower guard by Retracting Handle. As
soon as blade enters the material, 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.
NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands or across
your leg. It is important to support the work properly to
minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
Hold tool by insulating gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock
the operator.
When ripping always use a rip fence for a 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 vs. round) arbor holes. Blades that do not match
the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentrically,
causing loss of control.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
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 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 blade. 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 will cause binding and
KICKBACK.
Use extra caution when making a “Pocket Cut” into
existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding
blade may cut objects that can cause KICKBACK.
Additional Specific Safety Rules Continued
■
■
■
■
Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers or
bolts. The blade washers and bolt were specially designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety
of operation.
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 a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by
taking proper precautions as given below:
Maintain a firm grip on the saw and position your
body and arm in a way that allows you to resist KICKBACK forces. 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

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 your 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 your saw
down. Use gum and pitch remover, hot water, or kerosene to
remove these accumulations. DO NOT USE GASOLINE.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
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 your
saw until the damage has been repaired or replaced.
Always leave guard in operating position when using saw.
DANGER:
When sawing through workpiece, lower blade guard does
not cover blade on the underside of workpiece. Since

Never use saw when guard is not operating correctly.
Guard should be checked for correct operation before
each use. If you drop your saw, check the lower blade
guard and bumper for damage at all depth settings
before reuse.
NOTE: The guard is operating correctly when it moves
freely and readily returns to the closed position. If for any
reason your lower blade guard does not close freely, take
it to the nearest Ryobi authorized service center for
service before using.

OPERATION
KICKBACK
See Figure 8.
The best guard against kickback is to avoid dangerous
practices.
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.
KICKBACK
WARNING:
BLADE SET TOO DEEP
Fig. 8
To avoid kickback, release switch immediately if blade
binds or saw stalls. Kickback could cause you to lose
control of your saw. Loss of control can lead to serious
injury.
KICKBACK IS CAUSED BY:
■
■
■
■
Incorrect blade depth setting. See Figure 8.
Sawing into knots or nails in workpiece.
Twisting blade while making a cut.
Making a cut with a dull, gummed up, or improperly set
blade.
Incorrectly supporting workpiece. See Figure 9.
Forcing a cut.
Cutting warped or wet lumber.
Tool misuse or incorrect operating procedures.

TO LESSEN THE CHANCE OF KICKBACK:
■ Always keep the correct blade depth setting – the correct
blade depth setting for all cuts should not exceed 1/4 in.
below the material to be cut. See Figure 10. One blade
tooth below the material to be cut works best for most
efficient cutting action.
■ Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails before beginning
a cut. 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 in
the cut.
■ Always use clean, sharp and properly set blades. Never
make cuts with dull blades.
■ To avoid pinching the blade, support the workpiece
properly before beginning a cut. The right and wrong
ways to support large pieces of work are shown in
figures 9 and 11.

OPERATION
■ When making a cut use steady, even pressure. Never
force cuts.
■ Do not cut warped or wet lumber.
■ Always hold your saw firmly with both hands and keep
your body in a balanced position so as to resist the forces
of kickback should it occur.
When using your saw, always stay alert and exercise
control. Do not remove your saw from workpiece while
the blade is moving.
DEPTH OF CUT ADJUSTMENT
Always keep correct blade depth setting. The correct blade
depth setting for all cuts should not exceed 1/4 inch (6.4 mm)
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.

Place your workpiece with its good side down.
NOTE: The good side is the side on which appearance is
important.
Before beginning a cut, draw a guideline along the desired
line of cut. Then place front edge of base on that part of your
workpiece that is solidly supported. See Figure 16.
Never place your saw on that part of the workpiece that
will fall off when the cut is made. See Figure 15.
Hold your saw firmly with both hands.
See Figure 16.
Depress the lock-off button and squeeze the switch trigger to
start your saw. Always let the blade reach full speed, then

The angle of cut of your saw may be adjusted to any desired
setting between zero and 50°. NOTE: When making cuts at
50°, blade should be set at full depth of cut.
When making 45° bevel cuts, there is a notch in the saw base
to help you line up the blade with the line of cut.
See Figure 19.
Align your line of cut with the inner blade guide notch on the
saw base when making 45° bevel cuts.
Since blade thicknesses vary and different angles require
different settings, always make a trial cut in scrap material
along a guideline to determine how much you should
offset the guideline on the board to be cut.
When making a bevel cut hold your saw firmly with both
hands as shown in figure 20.
Rest the front edge of the base on the workpiece. Depress
the lock-off button and squeeze the switch trigger to start

they will eventually wear out. DO NOT disassemble battery
pack and attempt to replace the batteries. Handling of these
batteries, especially when wearing rings and jewelry, could
result in a serious burn.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
■ Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above 100° F or below 50° F will shorten
battery life.
■ Never store batteries in a discharged condition. Recharge
them immediately after they are discharged.
■ All batteries gradually lose their charge. The higher the
temperature the quicker they lose their charge. If you
store your tool for long periods of time without using it,
recharge the batteries every month or two. This practice
will prolong battery.
