Warning! When using electric tools, basic
safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of ﬁre, electric shock, and personal
injury, including the following:
Safety warnings: double insulation
Double insulated tools are constructed throughout with two
separate layers of electrical insulation or one double
thickness of insulation between you and the tool's electrical
system. Tools built with this insulation system are not
intended to be grounded. As a result, your tool is equipped
with a two prong plug which permits you to use extension
cords without concern for maintaining a ground connection.
Note: Double insulation does not take the place of normal
safety precautions when operating this tool. The insulation
system is for added protection against injury resulting from a
possible electrical insulation failure within the tool.
Warning: When servicing all tools, use
identical replacement parts. repair or replace
Safety instructions: polarized plugs
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug
will ﬁt in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not
ﬁt fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not ﬁt,
contact a qualiﬁed electrician to install the proper utlet. Do
not change the plug in any way.
Warning: Failure to heed these warnings may
result in personal injury and serious damage to

Do-Make certain the blade rotates in the correct
direction and that the teeth at the bottom of the blade
are pointing to the rear of the mitre saw.
Do-Be sure all clamp handles are tight before starting
Do-Be sure all blade and clamp washers are clean and

Don't-Operate unless all clamp handles are tight.
Don't-Use blades larger or smaller than those which are
Don't-Wedge anything against fan to hold motor shaft.

motor can cause major damage. Allow motor to reach full
speed before cutting.)
Don't-Cut ferrous metals (Those with any iron or steel
content) or any masonry.
Don't-Use abrasive wheels. The excessive heat and
abrasive particles generated by them will damage saw.
