SAFETY RULES FOR CORDLESS CIRCULAR SAWS cont.
8. HOLD TOOL by insulated gripping surfaces (handles) when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will make
the exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
9. ALWAYS clamp the workpiece securely so it will not move when making the cut.
10. When ripping, ALWAYS USE a rip fence or straight edge guide. This improves the
accuracy of the cut and reduces the chance of the blade binding.
11. ALWAYS USE blades that have the correct size and shape (diamond vs. round) arbor
holes. Blades that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw will run erratically and
cause loss of control.
12. NEVER use damaged or incorrect blade washers or bolts. The blade washers and bolts
were specially designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety of operation.
13. NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO NOT STACK more than one workpiece
on the worktable at a time.
14. AVOID awkward operations and hand positions where a sudden slip could cause your
hand to move into the blade.
15. NEVER reach into the cutting path of the blade.
16. ONLY USE the specifically listed battery pack and charging stand listed on page 6 of
this manual. Use of any other battery pack or charging stand / transformer can create
risk of injury and fire.
17. Cordless 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 operated tool or when changing accessories. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
18. Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of
explosion and possible injury.
19. Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Never use a battery pack or charging
stand/transformer that has been dropped or received a sharp blow. A damaged battery
pack is subject to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged battery pack
immediately.
20. 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 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.
21. Do not charge battery in a damp or wet location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock.
22. For best results, your battery should be charged in a location where the temperature is more
than 50°F but less that 80°F. Do not store battery outside or in vehicles.

23. 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.
24. 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 to prevent misuse
of the product and possible injury.
