General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all in-
and instructions may result in electric 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 toolor battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
Work area safety
f Keepworkareacleanandwelllit.Clutteredordarkareas
invite accidents.
f 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.
f Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
f 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.
f Avoidbodycontactwithearthedorgroundedsurfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
f Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
f 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.
f When operating a power tool outdoors, use an exten-
sioncordsuitableforoutdooruse. Useofacordsuitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoid-
able, use a residual current device (RCD) protected
supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
f Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
f Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
f Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in
the off-position before connecting to power source
and/orbatterypack,picking uporcarryingthetool. Car-
rying power tools with your finger on the switch or energis-
ing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
f Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a ro-
tating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
f Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
f Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewel-
lery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
f If devices are provided for the connection of dust ex-
traction and collection facilities, ensure these are con-
nected and properly used. Use of dust collection can re-
duce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
f Donot forcethepowertool. Usethecorrect powertool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
f 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.
f Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack from the power tool before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
f Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and
do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or
these instructions to operate the power tool. Power
tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
f Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or bind-
ing of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If
accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.

f Keepcuttingtoolssharpandclean. Properlymaintained
and are easier to control.
f Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in ac-
cordance with these instructions, taking into account
the working conditions and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
f Haveyourpowertoolservicedbyaqualifiedrepairper-
son using only identical replacement parts. This will en-
sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Jigsaws
f Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when
performing an operation where the cutting accessory
may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Cutting ac-
cessory contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal
electric shock.
Additional Safety and Working
f Keep hands away from the sawing range. Do not reach
to injuries.
f Apply the machine to the workpiece only when
switched on. Otherwise there is danger of kickback when
the cutting tool jams in the workpiece.
f Pay attention that the base plate rests securely 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 kick-
back and can place down the machine securely.
f Useonlyundamagedsawbladesthatareinperfectcon-
dition. Bent or dull saw blades can break, negatively influ-
ence the cut, or lead to kickback.
f Do not brake the saw blade to a stop by applying side
pressure after switching off. The saw blade can be dam-
aged, break or cause kickback.
f Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are
for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explo-
sion. Penetrating a water line causes property damage or
may cause an electric shock.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamp-
ing devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
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 Before any work on the machine itself, pull the mains
f Do not direct the light beam at persons or animals and
a distance).
f Check the tight seating of the saw blade. A loose saw
blade can fall out and lead to injuries.
f The saw blade should not be longer than required for
the intended cut. Use a narrow saw blade when sawing
tight curves.
f When ejecting the saw blade, hold the machine in such
a manner that no persons or animals can be injured by
the ejected saw blade.
f Dustsfrommaterialssuchaslead-containingcoatings,

ratory infections and/or cancer. Materials containing as-
bestos may only be worked by specialists.
– Asfaraspossible,useadustextractionsystemsuitable
for the material.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the
materials to be worked.
f Prevent dust accumulation at the workplace. Dusts can
easily ignite.
f Observe correct mains voltage!Thevoltageofthepow-
er source must agree with the voltage specified on the
nameplate of the machine. Power tools marked with
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
f The restarting protection prevents uncontrolled start-
ing of the machine after a power failure. To restart the
machine, set the On/Off switch to the off position, and
then switch the power tool on again.
f The contact protector attached to the casing (see fig-
ure 17, page 188) prevents accidental touching of the
saw blade during the working procedure and may not
be removed.
f Before sawing in wood, particle boards, building mate-
rials etc., check for foreign objects, such as nails,
screws, etc. and remove them as required.
f Plunge cuts may only be applied to soft materials, such
as wood, gypsum board, etc. For plunge cuts, use only
short saw blades.
f Themetalovershoepreventstheplasticfootplatefrom

f Adapt the settings of your power tool to the respective
application. For example, reduce the stroke rate and or-
bital action when cutting metal or for tight curved cuts.
f When working small or thin work pieces, always use a
sturdy support or a saw table (accessory).
f In extreme conditions, always use dust extraction as far
as possible. Blow out ventilation slots frequently and in-
stall a residual current device (RCD). When working met-
als, conductive dust can settle in the interior of the power
tool. The total insulation of the power tool can be impaired. Page 10 Monday, December 12, 2011 10:15 AM

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 ap-
plications of the tool. However if the tool is used for different
applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained,
the vibration emission may differ. This may significantly in-
crease 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
icantly 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 hands warm, organise work patterns.
