be avoided by taking proper precautions as
given below:
Maintain a firm grip with both hands on
the machine handles and position your
body and arm to allow you to resist recoil
forces. Recoil forces can be controlled by
the operator, if proper precautions are taken.
When wheel is binding, or when
interrupting a cut for any reason, release
the trigger and hold the machine
motionless in the material until the wheel
comes to a complete stop. Never attempt
to remove the machine from the work
while the wheel is in motion or recoil may
occur. Investigate and take corrective action
to eliminate the cause of wheel binding.
When restarting a machine in a
workpiece, center the wheel in the kerf
and check that the sides of the wheel are
not engaged into the material. If wheel is
binding, it may walk up or recoil from the
workpiece as the machine is restarted.
Support large panels to minimize the risk
of wheel pinching and recoil. Large panels
tend to sag under their own weight. Supports
must be placed under the panel on both
sides, near the line of cut and near the edge
of the panel.
Wheel depth adjusting locking levers/nuts
must be tight and secure before making a
cut. If depth adjustment shifts while cutting, it
may cause binding and recoil. Using the
machine with an excessive depth of cut
setting increases loading on the unit and
susceptibility to twisting of the wheel in the
kerf. It also increases the surface area of the
wheel available for pinching under wheel
twisting conditions or misalignment.
Use extra caution when making a "Pocket
Cut" into existing walls or other blind
areas. The protruding wheel may cut objects
that can cause recoil.
Some dust created by
W RNING
power sanding, sawing,
grinding, 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-
treated lumber.
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.
