Clean the outside of the tool at regular inter-
vals using a slightly damp cloth. Don’t use a

spray, steam pressure cleaning equipment or running
water for cleaning. This may negatively affect the elec-
trical safety of the tool. Always keep the grip surfaces
of the tool free from oil and grease. Don’t use cleaning
agents which contain silicone.

Never operate the tool when the ventilation slots
are blocked. Clean the ventilation slots carefully

using a dry brush. Don’t permit foreign objects to enter
the interior of the tool.
Clean off dirt and dust deposits and protect your insert
tools from corrosion by wiping them from time to time
with an oil-soaked rag. Always keep the connection end
clean and lightly greased.


Regularly check all external parts of the tool for

damage and check that all controls operate fault-

lessly. Don’t operate the tool when parts are damaged
or when the controls do not function faultlessly. Have
your tool repaired by a Hilti service center.
Repairs to the electrical sections of the tool may be car-
ried out only by trained electrical specialists.


Hilti warrants that the tool supplied is free of defects in
material and workmanship. This warranty is valid so
long as the tool is operated and handled correctly, cleaned
and serviced properly and in accordance with the Hilti
Operating Instructions, all warranty claims are made

and the technical system is maintained. This means that
only original Hilti consumables, components and spare
parts may be used in the tool.
This warranty provides the free-of-charge repair or
replacement of defective parts only. Parts requiring repair
or replacement as a result of normal wear and tear are
not covered by this warranty.
Additional claims are excluded, unless stringent nation-
al rules prohibit such exclusion. In particular, Hilti is
not obligated for direct, indirect, incidental or conse-
quential damages, losses or expenses in connection
with, or by reason of, the use of, or inability to use the
tool for any purpose. Implied warranties of mer-
chantability or fitness for a particular purpose are
specifically excluded.

immediately upon discovery of the defect to the address
of the local Hilti marketing organization provided.
This constitutes Hilti’s entire obligation with regard to

comments and oral or written agreements concerning

Plunge sawing
The plunge sawing technique should be used only on
soft materials and when the orbital action is switched
off. A little practise is required in order to be able to
plunge the blade into the material while the saw is run-
ning and thus make cut-outs without first drilling a hole.
Plunge sawing is possible only with short saw blades.
Plunge cuts may be started with the saw in one of two
different positions: in the normal position

Ẍ or in the

reversed position


Hold the saw with the front edge of the contact shoe
against the workpiece and switch on. Press the saw firm-
ly against the workpiece and begin the plunge move-
ment by reducing the angle of the saw (contact shoe)
to the workpiece.
When the blade has passed through the workpiece, bring
the saw into the normal working position (the entire sur-
face of the shoe in contact) and then continue sawing
along the line.

Blades and accessories

Use only saw blades with a standard




″ connection end

ẗẻ. The pipe-cutting adaptor, used to obtain perfect cuts

in pipes, is shown in the illustration


Hilti power tools have been designed to work opti-
mally as a system together with Hilti insert tools.
Accordingly, highest performance and longest life
expectancy can be achieved when you use this pow-
er tool with Hilti insert tools.
A comprehensive pro-
gram of insert tools and accessories is available. The
most important insert tools for this saw are shown on
the inside of the toolbox. Details of the entire programme
can be found in the current Hilti product catalogue.
Should you require insert tools not included in the stan-
dard programme, please contact the Hilti customer ser-
vice department or your Hilti sales representative. Hilti
offers a comprehensive range of special insert tools in
professional quality.

Check your insert tools at regular intervals and
replace them in good time. A damaged or badly

worn connection end may result in damage to the pow-
er tool.
Please observe the instructions on care and mainte-
nance of your insert tools given in the following section.

Take care to ensure that saw blades are always

stowed away in their own compartment in the tool-

box. Damage to the supply cord caused by the sharp
teeth of the saw blades can thus be avoided.
The Hilti Corporation accepts no liability for damage of
this kind or any resulting consequential damage.
