OPERATION FOR CIRCULAR SAW

This product will accept compatible Craftsman
20V Max powered by DieHard slide-type
lithium-ion battery packs. For complete charging
instructions, refer to the Operator's Manual for
your battery pack and charger models.
WARNING:
To prevent accidental
starting that could cause serious personal
injury, always remove the battery pack from
the tool when assembling parts, making
adjustments, installing or removing saw
blade, cleaning, or when it is not in use.
TO ATTACH BATTERY PACK
See Figure 2, page ii
To install the battery pack, align the tongue
on the battery pack with the groove in the
housing and slide it into place. Insert it all the
way until it locks in place with a click.
NOTICE:
Make sure that the latch on the
battery pack snaps into place and the battery
pack is secured to the tool before beginning
operation. Improper assembly of the
battery pack can cause damage to internal
components.
TO DETACH BATTERY PACK
See Figure 2, page ii
To remove the battery pack, slide it from the
tool while pressing the button on the front of
the pack.
WARNING:
Battery tools are always in
operating condition. To prevent accidental
starting, always ensure the safety switch is
not depressed when the tool is not in use or
when carrying the tool at your side. Always
carry the tool by its handgrip.
ATTACHING THE BLADE
See Figure 3, page ii
WARNING:
A 6-1/2 in. blade is the
maximum blade capacity of the saw. Never
use a blade that is too thick to allow outer
blade washer to engage with the flats on the
spindle. Larger blades will come in contact
with the blade guard, while thicker blades will
prevent blade screw from securing blade on
spindle. Either of these situations could result
in a serious accident.
■ Remove the battery pack from the saw.
■ Obtain the blade wrench (5mm hex key)
from storage area. See Figure 1, page i.
■ Depress and hold the spindle lock button.
■ Insert blade wrench into blade screw head
and turn clockwise to loosen and remove
screw.
NOTE:
The spindle may turn until lock
mechanism pin engages.
■ Remove the outer blade washer.
■ Use the lower blade guard lever to rotate
and hold the guard all the way to the left.
■ Carefully remove the old blade (if present)
from saw.

to a complete stop before engaging spindle
lock.

spindle lock engaged.
■ Wipe a drop of oil onto the inner blade
washer and outer blade washer where they

WARNING:
has been removed, replace it before placing
the blade on the spindle. The larger diameter
of the inner blade washer should be placed
against the blade. Failure to do so could
cause an accident as the blade will not
tighten properly.

guard all the way to the left.
■ Carefully fit the saw blade onto the spindle
and under the lower blade guard. Insert the
