General Power Tool Safety
Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in elec-
tric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to
your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Clut-
tered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distrac-
tions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radia-
tors, 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
will 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 and 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 out-
door use. Use of a cord suitable for out-
door use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp loca-
tion is unavoidable, use a residual current
device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an
RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a pow-
er tool. Do not use a power tool while you
are tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inat-
tention while operating power tools may
result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Al-
ways wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protec-
tion used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or bat-
tery pack, picking up or carrying the tool.
Carrying power tools with your finger on
the switch or energising power tools that
have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench be-
fore turning the power tool 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
better control of the power tool in unex-
pected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose cloth-
ing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can
be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connec-
tion of dust extraction and collection fa-
cilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.

4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the cor-
rect power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was de-
signed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjust-
ments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfa-
miliar with the power tool or these in-
structions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condi-
tion that may affect the power tool’s op-
eration. 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. Prop-
erly 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 with these in-
structions, taking into account the work-
ing conditions and the work to be per-
formed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified
by the manufacturer. A charger that is
suitable for one type of battery pack may
create a risk of fire when used with anoth-
er battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any oth-
er battery packs may create a risk of injury
and fire.
c) When battery pack is not in use, keep it
away from other metal objects, like pa-
per clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or
other small metal objects, that can make
a connection from one terminal to anoth-
er. Shorting the battery terminals togeth-
er may cause burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be
ejected from the battery; avoid contact.
If contact accidentally occurs, flush with
water. If liquid contacts eyes, additional-
ly seek medical help. Liquid ejected from
the battery may cause irritation or burns.
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qual-
ified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Machine-specific
Safety Warnings
f Keep hands away from the sawing range.
Do not reach under the workpiece. Contact
with the saw blade can lead to injuries.
f Apply the machine to the workpiece only
when switched on. Otherwise there is dan-
ger of kickback when the cutting tool jams in
the workpiece.
f Pay attention that the base plate 5 rests se-
curely on the material while sawing. A jammed
saw blade can break or lead to kickback.
f When the cut is completed, switch off the
machine and then pull the saw blade out of
the cut only after it has come to a standstill.
In this manner you can avoid kickback and
can place down the machine securely.
f Use only sharp, flawless saw blades. Bent or
unsharp saw blades can break or cause kick-
back.

Bosch Power Tools 1 609 929 N47 | (29.1.08)
f Do not brake the saw blade to a stop by ap-
plying side pressure after switching off. The
saw blade can be damaged, break or cause
kickback.
f Use appropriate detectors to determine if
utility lines are hidden in the work area or
call the local utility company for assistance.
Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can
lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage or may cause an
electric shock.
f Hold power tool by the insulated gripping
surfaces, when performing an operation
where the cutting tool may run into hidden
wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will make
exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and
shock the operator.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped
with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Keep your workplace clean. Blends of mate-
rials are particularly dangerous. Dust from
light alloys can burn or explode.
f Always wait until the machine has come to
a complete stop before placing it down. The
tool insert can jam and lead to loss of control
over the power tool.
f Avoid unintentional switching on. Ensure
the On/Off switch is in the off position be-
fore inserting battery pack. Carrying the
power tool with your finger on the On/Off
switch or inserting the battery pack into
power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
f Do not open the battery. Danger of short-
circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat, e.g.,
also against continuous sun irradiation
and fire. There is danger of explosion.

The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has been measured in accordance with
a standardised test given in EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with another. It may
be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main applications of the tool. However if the
tool is used for different applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained, the vibra-
tion emission may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure level over the total working
period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times when
the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may significantly
reduce the exposure level over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator from the effects of vibration such as:
maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.

Replacing/Inserting the Saw Blade
f When mounting the saw blade, wear protec-
tive gloves. Danger of injury when touching
the saw blade.
Selecting a Saw Blade
An overview of recommended saw blades can
be found at the end of these instructions. Use
only T-shank saw blades. The saw blade should
not be longer than required for the intended cut.
Use a thin saw blade for narrow curve cuts.
Inserting the Saw Blade (see figure A)
Insert the saw blade 12 (teeth in cutting direc-
tion) into the stroke rod until it latches 9.
While inserting the saw blade, pay attention that
the back of the saw blade is positioned in the
groove of the guide roller 10.
Note: If the grooves of the saw blade holder are
not in the position shown in the figure, then the
saw blade 12 cannot be inserted into the stroke
rod 9. Briefly press the SDS clamping lever 8 to-
ward the side and release it again.
f Check the tight seating of the saw blade.
A loose saw blade can fall out and lead to
injuries.
Ejecting the Saw Blade (see figure B)
f When ejecting the saw blade, hold the ma-
chine in such a manner that no persons or
animals can be injured by the ejected saw
blade.
Press the SDS clamping lever 8 sideward to the
stop. The saw blade 12 is released and ejected.
Dust/Chip Extraction
f Dusts from materials such as lead-containing
coatings, some wood types, minerals and
metal can be harmful to one’s health. Touch-
ing or breathing-in the dusts can cause aller-
gic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infec-
tions of the user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are
considered as carcinogenic, especially in
connection with wood-treatment additives
(chromate, wood preservative). Materials
containing asbestos may only be worked by
specialists.
– Provide for good ventilation of the work-
ing place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-
class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your
country for the materials to be worked.
Splinter Guard (see figure C)
The splinter guard 13 (accessory) can prevent
fraying of the surface while sawing wood. The
splinter guard can only be used for certain saw
blade types and only for cutting angles of 0°.
When sawing with the splinter guard, the base
plate 5 must not be moved back for cuts that are
close to the edge.
Press the splinter guard 13 from the bottom into
the base plate 5.
When using the sliding shoe 14, the splinter
guard 13 is not inserted into the base plate 5,
but into the sliding shoe.
Sliding Shoe
When working surfaces that are easily scratched,
the sliding shoe 14 can be attached onto the
base plate 5 in order to prevent the surface from
being scratched.

Operation
Operating Modes
f Before any work on the machine itself (e.g.
maintenance, tool change, etc.) as well as
during transport and storage, remove the
battery from the power tool. There is danger
of injury when unintentionally actuating the
On/Off switch.
Orbital Action Settings
The four orbital action settings allow for optimal
adaptation of cutting speed, cutting capacity
and cutting pattern to the material being sawed.
The orbital action can be adjusted with the ad-
justing lever 7, even during operation.
The optimal orbital action setting for the respec-
tive application can be determined through
practical testing. The following recommenda-
tions apply:
– Select a lower orbital action setting (or
switch it off) for a finer and cleaner cutting
edge.
– For thin materials such as sheet metal,
switch the orbital action off.
– For hard materials such as steel, work with
low orbital action.
– For soft materials and when sawing in the di-
rection of the grain, work with maximum or-
bital action.
Adjusting the Cutting Angle (see figure D)
The base plate 5 can be swivelled by 45° to the
left or right for mitre cuts.
Loosen the screw 15 and lightly slide the base
plate 5 in the direction of the saw blade 12.
Various cutting angles can be precisely adjusted
with an angle measurer.
Afterwards, push the base plate 5 toward the
battery 4 to the stop.
Tighten the screw 15 again.
The splinter guard 13 can not be inserted for
mitre cuts.
Offsetting the Base Plate (see figure D)
For sawing close to edges, the base plate 5 can
be offset to the rear.
Loosen screw 15 and push the base plate 5 to-
ward the battery 4 to the stop.
Tighten the screw 15 again.
Sawing with the base plate 5 offset is possible
only with a mitre angle of 0°. In addition, the
parallel guide with circle cutter 18 (accessory)
as well as the splinter guard 13 may not be used.
Sawdust Blower Device
With the air jet of the sawdust blower device 6,
the cutting line can be kept free of dust and
chips.
Starting Operation
Inserting the Battery
f Use only original Bosch O-pack batteries
with the voltage given on the type plate of
your machine. The use of other batteries can

Controling the Stroke Rate
Increasing or reducing the pressure on the
On/Off switch 2 enables stepless stroke-rate
control of the switched-on machine.
Light pressure on the On/Off switch 2 results in
a low stroke rate. Increasing the pressure also
increases the stroke rate.
The required stroke rate is dependent on the
material and the working conditions and can be
determined by a practical trial.
Reducing the stroke rate is recommended when
the saw blade engages in the material as well as
when sawing plastic and aluminium.
After longer periods of work at low stroke rate,
the machine can heat up considerably. Remove
the saw blade from the machine and allow the
machine to cool down by running it for approx.
3 minutes at maximum stroke rate.
Working Advice
f When sawing small or thin workpieces,
always use a firm support.
Contact Protector
The contact protector 11 attached to the casing
prevents accidental touching of the saw blade
during the working procedure and may not be
removed.
Plunge Cutting (see figures E–F)
f Plunge cuts may only be applied to soft ma-
terials, such as wood, gypsum plaster
boards, etc.!
Use only short saw blades for plunge cutting.
Plunge cutting is possible only with the mitre an-
gle set at 0°.
Place the machine with the front edge of the
base plate 5 on to the workpiece without the
saw blade 12 touching the workpiece and
switch on. For machines with stroke rate con-
trol, select the maximum stroke rate. Firmly
hold the machine against the workpiece and by
tilting the machine, slowly plunge the saw blade
into the workpiece.
When the base plate 5 fully lays on the workpiece,
continue sawing along the desired cutting line.
Parallel Guide with Circle Cutter (Accessory)
For cuts using the parallel guide with circle cut-
ter 18 (accessory), the thickness of the material
must not exceed a maximum of 30 mm.
Parallel Cuts (see figure G): Loosen the locking
screw 17 and slide the scale of the parallel guide
through the lead 16 in the base plate. Set the
desired cutting width as the scale value on the
inside edge of the base plate. Tighten the lock-
ing screw 17.
Circular Cuts (see figure H): Set the locking
screw 17 to the other side of the parallel guide.
Slide the scale of the parallel guide through the
lead 16 in the base plate. Drill a hole in the work-
piece centred in the section to be sawn. Insert
the centring tip 19 through the inside opening of
the parallel guide and into the drilled hole. Set
the radius as the scale value on the inside edge
of the base plate. Tighten the locking screw 17.
Coolant/Lubricant
When sawing metal, coolant/lubricant should be
applied alongside cutting line because of the
material heating up.

during transport and storage, remove the
battery from the power tool. There is danger
of injury when unintentionally actuating the
On/Off switch.
f For safe and proper working, always keep
the machine and ventilation slots clean.
Clean the saw blade holder regularly. For this,
remove the saw blade from the machine and
lightly tap out the machine on a level surface.
Heavy contamination of the machine can lead to
malfunctions. Therefore, do not saw materials
that produce a lot of dust from below or over-
head.
f In extreme working conditions, conductive
dust can accumulate in the interior of the
machine when working with metal. The pro-
tective insulation of the machine can be de-
graded. The use of a stationary extraction
system is recommended in such cases as
well as frequently blowing out the ventila-
tion slots and installing a residual current
device (RCD).
Lubricate the guide roller 10 occasionally with a
drop of oil.
Check the guide roller 10 regularly. If worn, it
must be replaced through an authorised Bosch
after-sales service agent.
If the machine should fail despite the care taken
in manufacturing and testing procedures, repair
should be carried out by an after-sales service
centre for Bosch power tools.
In all correspondence and spare parts order,
please always include the 10-digit article
number given on the type plate of the machine.
