Before attempting to use your reciprocating saw,
familiarize yourself with all operating features and safety
Carefully read through this entire owner's
manual before using your new reciprocating saw. Pay
close attention to the Rules For Safe Operation,
Warnings and Cautions. If you use your reciprocating
saw properly and only for what it is intended, you will
enjoy years of safe, reliable service.
If any parts are missing, do not operate
your saw until the missing parts are replaced. Failure to
do so could result in possible serious personal injury.
Do not allow familiarity with your saw to
make you careless. Remember that a careless fraction
of a second is sufficient to inflict severe injury.
A 5 mm Allen wrench is packed with your saw. A
convenient feature on your saw is the AL_en wrench holder.
This is a slot located on the bottom portion of the saw
handle. It is convenient for storing the Allen wrench when it
is not being used.
Your saw is equipped with a "lock-off" button which
reduces the possibility of accidental starting. The lock-off
button is located on the handle above the switch trigger.
You must depress the lock-off button in order to pull the
switch trigger. The lock resets each time the trigger is
released. Note: You can depress the lock-off button from
either the left or right side.
To turn your saw ON, depress the lock-off button and pull
switch trigger. Release switch trigger to turn your saw
This tool has a variable speed switch that delivers higher
speed with increased trigger pressure. Speed is controlled
by the amount of switch trigger depression.
