English Safety Notes General Power Tool Safety Warnings Read all safety warnings and all in- structions. Failure to follow the warnings
and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or seri-
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)
Work area safety Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas
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
Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety 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.
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.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric
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.
When operating a power tool outdoors, use an exten- sion cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
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 Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
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.
Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or en-
ergising power tools that have the switch on invites acci-
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
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.
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 Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
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.
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.
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.
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 damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
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.
Battery tool use and care Recharge only with the charger specified by the manu- facturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery
pack may create a risk of fire when used with another bat-
Use power tools only with specifically designated bat- tery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.

When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from oth- er metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the
battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally oc- curs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, addition- ally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery
may cause irritation or burns.
Service Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair per- son using only identical replacement parts. This will en-
sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Circular Saws Cutting procedures DANGER: Keep hands away from cutting area and the blade. Keep your second hand on auxiliary handle, or motor housing. If both hands are holding the saw, they
cannot be cut by the blade.
Do not reach underneath the workpiece. The guard can-
not protect you from the blade below the workpiece.
Adjust the cutting depth to the thickness of the work- piece. Less than a full tooth of the blade teeth should be
visible below the workpiece.
Never hold piece being cut in your hands or across your leg. Secure the workpiece to a stable platform. It is im-
portant to support the work properly to minimize body ex-
posure, blade binding, or loss of control.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces on- ly, when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a “live” wire
will also make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live”
and could give the operator an electric shock.
When ripping, always use a rip fence or straight edge guide. This improves the accuracy of cut and reduces the
chance of blade binding.
Always use blades with correct size and shape (dia- mond versus round) of arbour holes. Blades that do not
match the mounting hardware of the saw will run eccentri-
cally, causing loss of control.
Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers or bolt. The blade washers and bolt were specially designed for
your saw, for optimum performance and safety of opera-
Kickback causes and related warnings – Kickback is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound or
misaligned saw blade, causing an uncontrolled saw to lift
up and out of the workpiece toward the operator;
– When the blade is pinched or bound tightly by the kerf
closing down, the blade stalls and the motor reaction
drives the unit rapidly back toward the operator;
– If the blade becomes twisted or misaligned in the cut,
the teeth at the back edge of the blade can dig into the top
surface of the wood causing the blade to climb out of the
kerf and jump back toward the operator.
Kickback is the result of saw misuse and/or incorrect oper-
ating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by tak-
ing proper precautions as given below.
Maintain a firm grip with both hands on the saw and po- sition your arms to resist kickback forces. Position your body to either side of the blade, but not in line with the blade. Kickback could cause the saw to jump back-
wards, but kickback forces can be controlled by the opera-
tor, if proper precautions are taken.
When blade is binding, or when interrupting a cut for any reason, release the trigger and hold the saw mo- tionless in the material until the blade comes to a com- plete stop. Never attempt to remove the saw from the work or pull the saw backward while the blade is in mo- tion or kickback may occur. Investigate and take correc-
tive actions to eliminate the cause of blade binding.
When restarting a saw in the workpiece, centre the saw blade in the kerf and check that saw teeth are not en- gaged into the material. If saw blade is binding, it may
walk up or kickback from the workpiece as the saw is re-
Support large panels to minimise the risk of blade pinching and kickback. Large panels tend to sag under
their own weight. Supports must be placed under the pan-
el on both sides, near the line of cut and near the edge of
Do not use dull or damaged blades. Unsharpened or im-
properly set blades produce narrow kerf causing excessive
friction, blade binding and kickback.
Blade depth and bevel adjusting locking levers must be tight and secure before making cut. If blade adjustment
shifts while cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.
Use extra caution when sawing into existing walls or other blind areas. The protruding blade may cut objects
that can cause kickback.
Lower guard function Check lower guard for proper closing before each use. Do not operate the saw if lower guard does not move freely and close instantly. Never clamp or tie the lower guard into the open position. If saw is accidentally
dropped, lower guard may be bent. Raise the lower guard
with the retracting handle and make sure it moves freely
and does not touch the blade or any other part, in all angles
and depths of cut.
Check the operation of the lower guard spring. If the guard and the spring are not operating properly, they must be serviced before use. Lower guard may operate
sluggishly due to damaged parts, gummy deposits, or a
build-up of debris.
The lower guard may be retracted manually only for special cuts such as “plunge cuts and angle cuts”. Raise the lower guard by retracting the handle and as soon as the blade enters the material, release the lower guard. For all other sawing operations, the lower guard should op-

Bosch Power Tools
Always observe that the lower guard is covering the blade before placing saw down on bench or floor. An un-
protected, coasting blade will cause the saw to walk back-
wards, cutting whatever is in its path. Be aware of the time
it takes for the blade to stop after switch is released.
Additional safety warnings Do not reach into the chip ejector with your hands. They
could be injured by rotating parts.
Do not work overhead with the saw. In this manner you
do not have sufficient control over the power tool.
Use appropriate detectors to determine if utility lines are hidden in the work area or call the local utility com- pany 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 dam-
Do not operate the power tool stationary. It is not de-
signed for operation with a saw table.
Do not use high speed steel (HSS) saw blades. Such saw
blades can easily break.
Do not saw ferrous metals. Red hot chips can ignite the
When working with the machine, always hold it firmly with both hands and provide for a secure stance. The
power tool is guided more secure with both hands.
Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamp-
ing devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
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.
Do not open the battery. Danger of short-circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat, e. g., against continuous intense sunlight, fire, water, and moisture. Danger of explosion.
In case of damage and improper use of the battery, va- pours may be emitted. Ventilate the area and seek medical help in case of complaints. The vapours can irri-
tate the respiratory system.
Use the battery only in conjunction with your Bosch power tool. This measure alone protects the battery
against dangerous overload.
The battery can be damaged by pointed objects such as nails or screwdrivers or by force applied externally. An
internal short circuit can occur and the battery can burn,
smoke, explode or overheat.
