WARNING:
Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before installing or removing the blade.
CAUTION:
Use only the Makita hex wrench provided to install

socket bolt. This could cause an injury.
Lock the handle in the raised position by pushing in the
stopper pin.
To remove the blade, use the hex wrench to loosen the
hex socket bolt holding the center cover by turning it
counterclockwise. Raise the blade guard and center
cover.

To install the blade, mount it carefully onto the spindle,
making sure that the direction of the arrow on the
surface of the blade matches the direction of the arrow
on the blade case. Install the outer flange and hex
socket bolt, and then use the hex wrench to tighten the
hex socket bolt (left-handed) securely counterclockwise
while pressing the shaft lock.

The use of the dust bag makes cutting operations clean
and dust collection easy. To attach the dust bag, fit it
onto the dust nozzle.
When the dust bag is about half full, remove the dust
bag from the tool and pull the fastener out. Empty the
dust bag of its contents, tapping it lightly so as to remove
particles adhering to the insides which might hamper
further collection.
NOTE:
If you connect a Makita vacuum cleaner to your saw,
more efficient and cleaner operations can be performed.
