Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication.
A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious
personal injury.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as
dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hardhat, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure valve is off.
Carrying tools with your finger on the valve, or the machine being connected to
pneumatic supply, invites accidents.
Remove any adjusting key or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a
key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
Do not overreach. Keep a proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing
and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Keep hands away from cutting area and blade. Keep your second hand on
auxiliary handle. If both hands are holding the circular saw, they cannot be cut by
the blade.
Do not reach underneath the work piece. The guard cannot protect you from the
blade below the work piece.
Adjust the cutting depth to the thickness of the work piece. Less than a full tooth
of the blade teeth should be visible below the work piece.
Never hold piece being cut in your hands or across your leg. Secure the work
piece to a stable platform.
It is important to support the work properly to minimize body exposure, blade
binding or loss of control.
When ripping, always use the rip fence. This improves the accuracy of cut and
reduces the chance for blade binding.
Always use blades with correct size and shape (round versus diamond) spindle
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 (spindle flanges) or bolt. The
blade washers (spindle flanges) and bolt were specially designed for your saw.
For optimum work and safety.
Always make sure that you have a safe foothold.
Never work under the influence of alcohol, drugs or stronger medication.
Switch off the machine before laying it aside (shut valve).
Disconnect the machine from the power supply after finishing the work
(avoidance of unintentional starting).
Follow the general current and appropriate Accident Prevention and Safety
Procedures.
Keep the cutting tools sharp and clean.
ATTENTION! Never use the flexible hose as a lifting handle!
Kickback - Causes and operator prevention
- Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound, or misaligned saw blade, causing an
uncontrolled saw to lift up and out of the work piece towards 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 towards 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 work piece, causing the blade to climb out of the
kerf and jump back towards the operator.
Kickback is the result of tool misuse and/ or incorrect operating procedures or
conditions. It 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 backwards, but the operator can control kickback
forces, if proper precautions are taken.

Page 6 of 18
Pneumatic Metal Circ ula r Saw
5 1115 0010-0020
b) 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 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.
c) When restarting a saw in the work piece, centre 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 work piece as the saw is restarted.
d) Support large panels to minimize the risk of blade pinching and kickback. Large panels
tend to sag under their own weight. Support must be placed under the panel on both
sides, near the line of cut and near the edge of the panel.
e) Do not use dull or damaged blade. Dull blades produce a narrow kerf causing excessive
friction, blade binding, and kickback.
f) Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers must be tight and secure before making a
cut. If depth adjustment shifts while cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.
g) Be particularly careful when making a „plunging cut“ into a hidden area, such as an
existing wall. The saw blade plunging in may get caught in hidden objects while sawing
and lead to kickback.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
a) Check before every use that the lower protective guard closes smoothly. Do not use the
saw, if the lower protective guard does not move freely and does not close immediately.
Never block or tie off the lower protective guard in the open position. Should the saw fall
accidentally, the lower protective guard may be bent. Open the protective guard with the
lever and ensure that it moves freely and does not come into contact with either the saw
blade or any other parts at any sawing angle or depth.
b) Check the function of the springs for the lower protective guard. Have the machine
serviced before use, if the lower protective guard and springs do not operate smoothly.
Damaged parts, sticky deposits or accumulations of swarf will retard the operation of the
lower protective guard.
c) Open the lower protective guard by hand only for particular cuts, such as „plunging and
angular cuts“. Open the lower protective guard with the lever and release it as soon as
the saw blade has penetrated the work piece. With all other sawing work, the lower
protective guard must work automatically.
d) Do not place the saw on the work bench or on the floor without checking that the lower
protective guard covers the saw blade. An unprotected saw blade still running will move
the saw towards the direction of sawing and saw anything standing in its path. Be aware
of the time taken for the saw to run down.

How to use rip fence
Using the rip fence will provide more accurate straight cuts than by cutting free- hand.
For installation, disconnect tool from pneumatic supply, then insert the rip fence in the mounting
slots in the base (see fig. 9)
Fig 9
Select the desired cut width on the cutting guide and tighten the 2 thumb screws to lock.
Lower retracting blade guard
The lower retracting blade guard is a safety device important for your protection. Every time you
use the saw, make sure that the guard rotates freely and returns quickly and completely to its
closed position. Before each use, remove any accumulated chips or shavings from the area around
the hub of the guard.
Do not lubricate this area.
The hub has a dry film lubricated surface that does not need oiling. Never block or wedge the
blade guard in the open position. Never use your saw, if the blade guard is not in working order. If
blade guard movement is sluggish or if binding exists, return the saw to your nearest authorized
service centre for repair.
How to use the tool
Attention:
To reduce the risk of injury, only use original Tanitec saw blades, which are appropriate for this
machine. Do not use saw blades of a different type.
Effective control of this powerful saw requires two- handed operation for maximum protection.
Support the work properly and to hold the saw firmly with both hands to prevent loss of control
which could cause personal injury.
Always hold the side handle with the left hand and the rear handle with the right hand for proper
hand support of the saw.
The bottom of the saw is placed on the work piece; the saw blade does not touch the work piece.
Orient the line of cut. The required speed of the blade has to be achieved, before starting the cut.
Wearing goggles, a dust mask and ear protection during use is compulsory.
Do not use cutting fluids or lubricants on the blade.

Page 14 of 18
Pneumatic Metal Circ ula r Saw
5 1115 0010-0020
Clamp the work piece
Secure the work piece properly. The work piece should be straight and firmly clamped to avoid
possible movement and pinching as the cut nears completion. Provide adequate support for long
or wide work pieces. Confirm that the blade has come to a complete stop before removing or
securing the work piece, or changing the work piece angle. First press the valve trigger. Move the
saw forward to contact the work piece. Clamp the work piece on a rigid support, such as a bench
or saw horses. Mark the line of cut on the work piece. Be sure that the cut- off line is far enough on
the work piece to allow proper operation of the telescoping guard. Place the front edge of the saw
squarely on work piece before starting the motor. Adjust the cutting line with the sighting notch
indicator or use the rip fence. Be certain that the blade is not contacting the work piece. Press the
lock lever and the valve trigger, allow the motor to come up to full speed and move the saw forward
to begin the cut.
Caution: Keep the pneumatic hose away from the cutting area to prevent it from becoming
entangled in the work piece.
Do not force the cut. Let the saw do the cutting at the rate of speed permitted by the type of cut
and work piece. Increase feed pressure as the blade cuts through the thicker cross- sections (to
maintain minimum “sparking”). Decrease the feed pressure as the blade cuts through the thinner
cross sections.
After completing the cut, release the valve trigger and wait for the coasting blade to stop
completely before putting the saw down.
Keep tool clean
Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed air. All plastic parts should be cleaned
with a soft damp cloth. They could possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material. Wear
safety glasses while using compressed air.
Maintenance Instructions
A continuous and proper operation requires regular cleaning.
Attention:
Make sure that the tools is shut off and not connected to pneumatic supply, before executing
maintenance, respectively an inspection of the tool. For safety reasons and in order to guarantee a
proper functioning of the machine, repairs, maintenance and adjustment of the tool has to be done
by an authorized service centre. Only use genuine spare parts.
Our pneumatic motors are designed for an operation pressure of 6 bar (65-90 PSI).
Service life and performance of the machines are decisively determined by:
a) The air purity
Blow the air hose clear before connecting it to the machine. Install dirt and water
separator upstream of the machine, if it is not possible to prevent the formation of rust
and water condensation in the air distribution lines.
b) The lubrication conditions and maintenance
