The warnings, cautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual cannot cover all possible conditions or situations that could occur. It must be understood by
the operator that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.
WARNING! Only operate the engine in a well ventilated area. Carbon Monoxide produced by the engine during use can kill. Do not use indoors, near windows or in other sheltered areas.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS WORK AREA
Keep work area clean, free of clutter and well lit. Cluttered and dark work areas can cause accidents.
Do not use your sawmill where there is a risk of causing a fire or an explosion; e.g. in the presence of flammable liquids, gasses, or dust. Power tools create sparks, which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control, so visitors should remain at a safe distance from the work area. Be aware of all power lines, electrical circuits, water pipes and other mechanical hazards in your work area, particularly those hazards below the work surface hidden from the operator’s view that may be unintentionally contacted and may cause personal harm or property damage.
Be alert of your surroundings. Using power tools in confined work areas may put you dangerously close to cutting tools and rotating parts.
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 operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing, dangling objects, or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts. Air vents often cover moving parts and should be avoided.
Use safety apparel and equipment. Use safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields
which comply with current national standards, or when needed, a face shield. Use a dust mask in dusty work conditions. This applies to all persons in the work area. Also use non-skid safety shoes, hardhat, gloves, dust collection systems, and hearing protection when appropriate.
Do not over reach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before connecting to the power supply or turning on the tool. A wrench or key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
Never make blade guide adjustments, remove or install blades or conduct any other maintenance or make any other adjustments when the engine is running. Always shut the engine off, remove the ignition key, and keep the engine off before carrying out any of the aforementioned procedures. Consult your engine manual for safe shutdown procedures to prevent accident ignition.
