1) WORK AREA SAFETY
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
such as in the presence
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite
the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children
away while operating
a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do
not use any adapter
plugs with earthed
plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact
with earthed or grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool
wifl increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock:
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for outdoor
use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock:
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing
and use common

equipment such as dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional
Ensure the switch is in the off position before
connecting to power source
pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents•
d) Remove any adjusting
key or wrench
the power tooJ on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury•
e) Do not overreach.
Keep proper footing
and balance at all times.
This enables bet-
ter control of the power tool in unexpected
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing
Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts•
g) If devices
are provided for the connection of dust extraction
ensure these are connected
and properly used. Use of dust coflection
can reduce dust-related hazards.
4) POWER TOOL USE AND CARE

the plug from the power source
and/or the battery
pack from the
power tool before making any adjustments,
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons
with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
of moving parts,
of parts and any other condition
that may affect the power tool's
ation. If damaged,
have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting
tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control
g) Use the power tool, accessories
and tool bits, etc. in accordance
and the work to be
Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
a) Have your power tool serviced
by a qualified
repair person using only identical
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
• Hold power tool by insulated gripping
when performing an operation where
may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Cutting accessory
contacting a "five" wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live" and could
give the operator an electric shock•
• Use clamps
or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece
stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
• Keep hands away from cutting
area. Never reach underneath the material for any reason.
Hold front of saw by grasping the contoured gripping area. Do not insert fingers or thumb
into the vicinity of the reciprocating blade and blade clamp. Do not stabilize the saw by
gripping the shoe.
• Keep blades sharp. Dull blades may cause the saw to swerve or staff under pressure.
• When cutting
pipe or conduit ensure that they are free from water, electrical
• Allow the motor to come to a complete
stop before withdrawing
the blade from the
kerf (the slot created by cutting).
A moving blade may impact the workpiece causing a
broken blade, workpiece damage or loss of control and possible personal injury.
• Never hold work in your hand, lap or against parts of your body when sawing. The saw
may slip and the blade could contact the body causing injury.
• Keep handles dry, clean, free from oil and grease. This will enable better control of the tool
• Clean out your tool often, especially
after heavy use. Dust andgrit containing metal
particles often accumulate on interior surfaces and could create an electric shock hazard.
• Do not operate this tool for long periods of time. Vibration causedby the operating action
of this tool may cause permanent injury to fingers, hands, and arms. Use gloves to provide
extra cushion, take frequent rest periods, and limit daily time of use.

• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
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.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding,
