Things to Avoid

  • Do not use faulty equipment. Immediately report suspect equipment.
  • Do not exceed the maximum cut for the machine.
  • Do not cut branches, dowel, or wood with embedded nails or screws.
  • Do not cut ferrous material.
  • Never have your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to cut.
  • Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
  • Never operate the tool with one hand while holding the workpiece with the other hand. Always clamp the material and guide the tool with both hands.

Safety Checks

  • Locate and ensure you are familiar with all machine operations and controls.
  • Do not cut material lying on a hard surface. Ensure clearance exists behind material to be cut.
  • Check for damaged parts. Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn it on and off.
  • Check workspaces and walkways to ensure no slip/trip hazards are present.
  • Ensure the work area is clean and uncluttered. Keep table and work area clear of all tools, off-cut timber and sawdust.
  • Start the dust extraction unit before using the machine.
  • Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, because the cutter may contact its own cord.
  • Do not start the tool with bit engaged in the material. The bit may grab the material.

Operational Checks

  • Ensure all adjustments are secure before making a cut.
  • Secure the workpiece with clamps and against the guard fences and support the workpiece on a stable platform. Do not use a length stop on the free scrap end of a clamped workpiece.
  • Practice trigger safety by removing finger from trigger until ready to cut.


  • Disconnect plug from power supply before making adjustments, changing bits or cleaning tool.
  • Remove debris from area using the shop-vac.
