GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
PERSONAL SAFETY
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 mains-operated (corded) power tool or batteryoperated (cordless) power tool.
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.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
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.
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 expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk of electric shock.
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.
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.
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.
Use battery only with charger listed. For use with
19.2V nickel-cadmium and 19.2V lithium-ion battery
packs, see tool/appliance/battery pack/charger
correlation supplement 988000-272.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
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.
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.
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
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.
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.
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.
3 – English
GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
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.
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.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
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.
BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
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.
Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
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.
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.
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.
When servicing a power tool, use only identical
replacement parts. Follow instructions in the
Maintenance section of this manual. Use of
unauthorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance
instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.
CIRCULAR SAW SAFETY WARNINGS
DANGER: 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.
 Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The
guard can not protect you from the blade below the
workpiece.
 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.
 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.
 Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
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 power
tool “live” and shock the operator.
 When ripping always use a rip fence or 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 versus round) of arbour 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.
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 the result of saw misuse and/or incorrect
operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided
by taking proper precautions as given below:
4 – English
CIRCULAR SAW SAFETY WARNINGS
 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 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 making a “plunge cut” into
existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding
blade may cut objects that can cause kickback.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
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.
 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.
 Always wear eye protection with side shields
marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1. Failure to do so
could result in objects being thrown into your eyes,
resulting in possible serious injury.
 Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of serious personal injury.
 Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
 Check damaged parts. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will
operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and
any other conditions that may affect its operation.
A guard or other part that is damaged should be
properly repaired or replaced by an authorized
service center. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of shock, fire, or serious injury.
 Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before
using this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of serious personal injury.
 Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use this
tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these
instructions also.

9 – English
WARNING: When using the saw, always stay alert
and exercise control. Do not remove the saw from
the workpiece while the blade is moving.
OPERATION
SAW BLADES
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 the 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 the
saw down. Remove saw blade from the saw and use gum
and pitch remover, hot water, or kerosene to remove these
accumulations. DO NOT USE GASOLINE.
BLADE GUARD SYSTEM
See Figure 9, page ii.
The lower blade guard attached to the circular saw is
there for your protection and safety. Do not alter it for any
reason. If it becomes damaged, do not operate the saw
until you have the guard repaired or replaced. Always
leave guard in operating position when using the saw.
DANGER: When sawing through work, lower blade
guard does not cover blade on the underside of
work. Since blade is exposed on underside of work,
keep hands and fingers away from cutting area. Any
part of your body coming in contact with moving
blade will result in serious injury.
CAUTION: Never use saw when guard is not operating correctly. Check the guard for correct operation before each use. The guard is operating correctly when it moves freely and readily returns to the
closed position. If you drop the saw, check the lower
blade guard and bumper for damage at all depth settings before reuse.
If at any time the lower blade guard does not snap closed,
remove the battery from the saw. Exercise the lower guard
by moving it rapidly back and forth from the full open
position to the closed position several times. Normally this
will restore the guard to its normal operating condition.
If it does not correct a slow or sluggish closing lower
guard, do not use the saw. Take it to an authorized factory
service center for repair.
STARTING/STOPPING THE SAW
See Figure 10, page ii.
To start the saw:
Depress the lock-off button.
Squeeze the switch trigger.
Always let the blade reach full speed, then guide the saw
into the workpiece.
WARNING: The blade coming in contact with the
workpiece before it reaches full speed could cause
the saw to “kick back” toward you resulting in serious injury.
To stop the saw: Release the switch trigger.
After you release the switch trigger, allow the blade to
come to a complete stop. Do not remove the saw from
the workpiece while the blade is moving.
LOCK-OFF BUTTON
See Figure 10, page ii.
The lock-off button reduces the possibility of accidental starting. The lock-off button is located on the handle
above the switch trigger. The lock-off button must be depressed before you pull the switch trigger. The lock resets
each time the trigger is released.
NOTE: You can depress the lock-off button from either the
left or right side.
ADJUSTING BLADE DEPTH
See Figure 11, page ii.
Always keep correct blade depth setting. The correct
blade depth setting for all cuts should not exceed 1/4 in.
below the material being cut. More blade depth will
increase the chance of kickback and cause the cut to be
rough. For more depth of cut accuracy, a scale is located
on the back of the upper blade guard.
Remove battery pack from saw.
Loosen depth lock knob.
Determine the desired depth of cut.
Locate depth of cut scale on back of upper blade
guard.
 Hold base flat against the workpiece and raise or lower
saw until the indicator mark on bracket aligns with
notch on blade guard.
 Tighten depth lock knob securely.

DANGER: When lifting the saw from the workpiece,
the blade is exposed on the underside of the saw
until the lower blade guard closes. Make sure the
lower blade guard is closed before setting the saw
down.
OPERATION
BEVEL CUTTING
WARNING: To make sawing easier and safer,
always maintain proper control of the saw. Loss of
control could cause an accident resulting in possible
serious injury.
To make the best possible cut, follow these helpful hints:
 Hold the saw firmly with both hands.
 Avoid placing your hand on the workpiece while
making a cut.
 Support the workpiece so that the cut (kerf) is always
to your side.
 Support the workpiece near the cut.
 Clamp the workpiece securely so that the workpiece
will not move during the cut.
 Always place the saw on the workpiece that is
supported, not the “cut off” piece.
 Place the workpiece with the “good” side down.
 Draw a guideline along the desired line of cut before
beginning your cut.
See Figures 18 - 19, page iii.
 Align the line of cut with the inner blade guide notch on
the base when making 45° bevel cuts.
 Make a trial cut in scrap material along a guideline to
determine how much you should offset the guideline
on the cutting material.
 Adjust the angle of the cut to any desired setting
between 0º to 50º. Refer to Adjusting the Bevel
Setting next.
ADJUSTING THE BEVEL SETTING
See Figure 18, page iii.
 Remove battery pack from the saw.
 Loosen the bevel lock knob.
 Raise the motor housing end of the saw until you reach
the desired angle setting on the bevel scale.
 Tighten the bevel lock knob securely.
WARNING: Attempting a bevel cut without having
the bevel lock knob securely tightened can result in
serious injury.
CROSS CUTTING/RIP CUTTING
See Figure 15, page ii.
When making a cross cut or rip cut, align the line of cut
with the outer blade guide notch on the base.
Since blade thicknesses vary, always make a trial cut
in scrap material along a guideline to determine how
much, if any, you must offset the guideline to produce an
accurate cut.
NOTE: The distance from the line of cut to the guideline is
the amount you should offset the guide.
RIP CUTTING
See Figure 16, page ii.
Use a guide when making long or wide rip cuts with the
saw.
 Secure the workpiece.
 Clamp a straight edge to the workpiece using
C-clamps.
 Saw along the straight edge to achieve a straight rip
cut.
NOTE: Do not bind the blade in the cut.
WIDTH OF CUT SCALE
See Figure 17, page iii.
A width of cut scale has been provided on the base of
your saw. When making straight cross cuts or rip cuts,
the scale can be used to measure up to four inches to the
right side of the blade. It can be used to measure up to
one inch to the left side of the blade.
MAKING A BEVEL CUT
See Figure 19, page iii.
 Hold the saw firmly with both hands as shown.
 Rest the front edge of the base on the workpiece.
 Start the saw and let the blade reach full speed.
 Guide the saw into the workpiece and make the cut.
 Release the trigger and allow the blade to come to a
complete stop.
 Lift the saw from the workpiece.
POCKET CUTTING
See Figure 20, page iii.
WARNING: Always adjust bevel setting to zero
before making a pocket cut. Attempting a pocket
cut at any other setting can result in loss of control
of the saw possibly causing serious injury.
Remove battery pack from saw.
Adjust the bevel setting to zero.
Set the blade to the correct blade depth setting.
Reinsert battery pack.
Swing the lower blade guard up using the lower blade
guard handle.
NOTE: Always raise the lower blade guard with the

with the rear of the handle raised so the blade does not
touch the workpiece.
 Start the saw and let the blade reach full speed.
 Guide the saw into the workpiece, release lower blade
guard handle, and make the cut.
 Release the trigger and allow the blade to come to a
complete stop.
