– Always push the workpiece through to the end of the splitter (6).
– The offcut piece remains on the saw table (1) until the blade (3) is back in its position of rest.
– Secure long workpieces against falling off at the end of the cut (e.g. with a roller stand etc.) (e.g. roller table etc.)

Cutting narrow workpieces (Fig. 20)

Be sure to use a push stick (9) when making longitudinal cuts in workpieces smaller than 120 mm in width. A push block is supplied with the saw! Replace a worn or damaged push stick immediately.

  • Adjust the parallel stop to the width of the workpiece you require. (see 9.4)
  • Feed-in the workpiece with two hands. Always use the push stick (9) in the area of the saw blade.
  • Always push the workpiece through to the end of the splitter.
    Warning icon Caution! With short workpieces, use the push stick from the beginning.
Making angular cuts (Fig. 21)

Angular cuts must always be made using the parallel stop (15).
– Set the blade to the desired angle. (See 9.3)
– Set the parallel stop (15) in accordance with the workpiece width and height (see 9.4)
– Carry out the cut in accordance with the workpiece width (see 10.1).

Making crosscuts (Fig. 22)

– Slide the cross stop (7) into one of the grooves (31a/b) in the table and adjust to the required angle.
(see 9.5). If you also want to tilt the blade (3), use the groove (31a) which prevents your hand and the cross stop from making contact with the blade guard.
– Use the stop rail.
– Press the workpiece firmly against the cross stop (7).
– Switch on the saw.
– Push the cross stop (7) and the workpiece toward the blade in order to make the cut.
– Important:
Always hold the guided part of the workpiece.
Never hold the part which is to be cut off.
– Push the cross stop (7) forward until the workpiece is cut all the way through.
– Switch off the saw again. Do not remove the offcut until the blade has stopped rotating.

Cutting particle boards

To prevent the cutting edges from cracking when working with particle boards, you should not set the saw blade (3) more than 5mm greater than the thickness of the workpiece
(also see 9.2).


  1. Turn off the power tool before any transport and disconnect it from the power supply.
