Support panels or any oversized
workpiece to minimize the risk of wheel
pinching and kickback. Large workpieces
tend to sag under their own weight. Supports
must be placed under the workpiece near the
line of cut and near the edge of the
workpiece on both sides of the wheel.
GFCI and personal protection devices like
electrician's rubber gloves and footwear will
further enhance your personal safety.
Do not use AC only rated tools with a DC
power supply. While the tool may appear to
work, the electrical components of the AC
rated tool are likely to fail and create a hazard
to the operator.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil
and grease. Slippery hands cannot safely
control the power tool.
Develop a periodic maintenance schedule
for your tool. When cleaning a tool be
careful not to disassemble any portion of
the tool since internal wires may be
misplaced or pinched or safety guard return
springs may be improperly mounted.
Certain cleaning agents such as gasoline,
carbon tetrachloride, ammonia, etc. may
damage plastic parts.
Risk of injury to user. The power cord must only
be serviced by a Bosch Factory Service Center
or Authorized Bosch Service Station.
This machine is not intended to be used
with Wet Diamond Wheels. Using water or
other liquid coolants with this machine may
result in electrocution or shock. Use of Dry
Diamond Wheels is acceptable.
Use extra caution when making a "pocket
cut" into existing walls or other blind
areas. The protruding wheel may cut gas or
water pipes, electrical wiring or objects that
can cause kickback.
Additional Safety Warnings
drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer,
birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Some examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints,
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and
other masonry products, and
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically-
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as
those dust masks that are specially designed
to filter out microscopic particles.
This tool must be used with Respiratory
Protection sufficient to block dusts including
silica from concrete cutting. N-95 rated masks
minimum or full respirator protection for the
operator and others in the work area.
Dust collection is strongly recommended with a
vacuum or other suitable dust collection system
for concrete/masonry applications.
Do not use vacuum or other dust collection
system when cutting metal. Sparks from metal
cutting can cause fire in the collector.
Some dust created by power
sanding, sawing, grinding,
