should operate automatically.  
CAUSES AND OPERATOR PREVENTION  
Always observe that the lower guard is  
covering the blade before placing saw down  
on bench or floor. An unprotected, coasting  
blade will cause the saw to walk backwards,  
cutting whatever is in its path. Be aware of the  
time it takes for the blade to stop after switch is  
released.  
OF KICKBACK:  
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.  
NEVER hold piece being cut in your hands  
or across your leg. It is important to support  
the work properly to minimize body exposure,  
blade binding, or loss of control.  
Hold tool by the insulated gripping surfaces  
when performing an operation where the  
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or it  
own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will also  
make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and  
shock the operator.  
When ripping always use a rip fence or  
straight edge guide. This improves accuracy  
of cut and reduces the chance for blade binding.  
VARI-TORQUE  
CLUTCH  
Always use blades with correct size and  
shape (diamond vs. round) arbor holes.  
Blades that do not match the mounting  
hardware of the saw will run eccentrically,  
causing loss of control and will not allow proper  
vari-torque engagement.  
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.  
Never use damaged or incorrect blade  
washers or bolts. The blade washers and bolt  
were specially designed for your saw, for  
optimum performance and safety of operation.  
The blade washers and the bolt on your saw  
have been designed to work as a “VARI-  
TORQUE CLUTCH”. Understand the operation  
and settings of the VARI-TORQUE CLUTCH,  
because the proper setting of the CLUTCH,  
combined with firm handling of the saw will  
allow you to control KICKBACK.  
Kickback is the result of tool misuse and/or  
incorrect operating procedures or conditions  
and can be avoided by taking proper  
precautions as given below:
